When you hear you are covered by the blood of Jesus, it means that your debt of sin has been paid and you are forgiven. The physical act of him bleeding on the cross (followed by his death and resurrection) washes away our human sins.
Christ died on a cross. We know this for a fact, so how does his blood pay into it? Didn’t most people who hung on crosses die of suffocation?
The suffocation part is true but Jesus died shed blood on the cross. He shed blood on the nails were hammered through his nail and feet.
Blood of Jesus – Symbolic Meaning
When Jesus died, he took the place of the lamb that the priests would sacrifice. Instead, Jesus’ blood washes us and makes our sins whiter than blood washes us and makes our sins whiter than snow. The old system of continual sacrifices is not needed anymore.
Once you are a repentant believer, you are covered. Even though you feel confusing, think of this is a simple term. The penalty for sin is death, and Jesus paid that penalty once and for all when he was willingly put to death and then resurrected.

The Prophesy of the Blood of Jesus
From the very beginning of human history, it is revealed. When Adam and Eve sinned, God shed innocent blood in order to make their clothes from animal skins (Genesis 3:21)
In Genesis four, we read that Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel. They instinctively wanted to worship God. Cain sacrificed the fruit of the ground. Abel had already learned that God demanded blood, so he brought a lamb. God accepted the blood of Abel’s lamb, but he did not accept Cain’s offering. Why? Because “without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin”.
