I can hardly believe I’m saying this, but it’s true: people have forgotten the power of Jesus’ blood.
People aren’t preaching about it any longer. Only a few people are capable of doing so.
How something so vital to Christians could be overlooked?
We’ve replaced the message of Jesus’ powerful blood with hollow “feel good” preaching.
The devil must be behind it all; he doesn’t want people to know about the blood that defeated him and put him powerless at Calvary. He wants to keep Christians like you in the same position as the rest of the world: helpless and defeated.
So, in today’s message, we’re going to shares 10 things you must know about the power of the blood of Jesus in the scriptures.
Blood is mentioned frequently in the Bible, but what does Christ’s blood signify to us?
“Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by…and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, and his blood shall be on our head if any hand be upon him. Joshua 2:18-19”
Rahab, the lady mentioned in this text, worked as a harlot in Jericho. As the Israelites took possession of the land, her city — and she with it — were doomed to perish. But by tying a crimson thread in her window, she was delivered and her life was revolutionized.
This cord signified the Lord Jesus Christ’s blood, and it pointed to the Lamb of God who takes away the world’s guilt. In reality, the Bible as a whole is about Jesus Christ and His blood salvation, and this scarlet thread runs through it all.
The Blood of Jesus’s Prophecy
It has been exposed from the dawn of human history. When Adam and Eve sinned, God spent innocent blood to provide them with animal skin clothing (Genesis 3:21). This is a representation of the righteousness covering we receive as a result of the Lord Jesus Christ’s death for us.
Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel, according to Genesis four. They felt compelled to worship God. Cain offered the ground’s produce as a sacrifice. Abel had already discovered that God needed blood, so he brought a lamb with him. God accepted Abel’s lamb’s blood, but He rejected Cain’s gift. Why? Because “there is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood” (Hebrews 9:22).
And God instructed Abraham to offer his long-awaited son Isaac as a sacrifice (Genesis 22). An angel intervened just as Abraham was about to plunge the dagger into his son’s trembling heart. Abraham came across a ram stuck in a bush. Isaac was set free, but the blood of an innocent animal was spilled instead.
Then God desired to free His people from their slavery in Egypt. God told each household to murder a lamb and put the blood on their door on the night of the Passover. “When I see the blood,” God said in Exodus 12:13, “I will pass over you.”
Thousands upon thousands of sheep, oxen, and turtle doves were slaughtered and their bloodshed as sin sacrifices in the tabernacle and then in the temple.
Finally, the Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross. All of the prophecies and promises were fulfilled when he died. He was slain before the foundation of the world, according to Revelation 13:8. He was born to die, He came to die, He planned to die, He lived to die, and He came to die.
The blood of Jesus is mentioned throughout Scripture, as we’ve seen. What does Jesus’ blood signify to us today?
WHY IS THE BLOOD OF JESUS IMPORTANT?
“For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.
1 Peter 1:18-19”
Jesus’ blood washed away our sins, as well as the sins of the entire world.
His blood took away the sin that had contaminated your life and kept you from being reconciled to God and on the road to damnation. This quote by Charles Spurgeon is one of my favorites:
“Morality may keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus Christ to keep you out of Hell.
According to the Bible, death is the penalty for sin. That was the payment you were required to make. But Jesus came and paid the ransom with His precious blood so that you and I could be saved.
Our future is better now because we are referred to as God’s children, and instead of torment, we may be certain that heaven will be our home.
UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS
If Mary and Joseph had been Jesus’ parents, His blood would have been normal human blood, just like yours. However, because Joseph was not Jesus’ father, this was not the case.
“The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you. So the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God.
Luke 1:35 (NIV)”
Jesus’s blood not only had the human side of His mother Mary but also had the power of His Father God.
“Jesus did not have an earthly father. God and man became one in the womb of the Virgin Mary.
That is the secret of the Blood of Jesus’ Power. His blood was potent enough to pay the price for the whole human species with just one drop.
It was established in Leviticus 17:11 that the flesh’s life was in the blood and that only the blood could make atonement (reparation) for the soul.
As a result, the blood of a lamb was used as an atonement for sin.
There aren’t enough lambs in the world to pay the price for the entire human species, in my opinion. That was only a stopgap measure.
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
John 1:29 (NKJV)”
God provided the lamb, and Jesus was the Lamb of God who was slaughtered before the world was created.
His blood was holy and strong, capable of atoning for the sins of the entire human species, past, present, and future.
1. JESUS’ BLOOD HAS THE ABILITY TO REMOVE ALL SIN.
We have fellowship with one another if we walk in the light as He walks in the light, and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, purifies us from all sin. Revelation 1:7
One of my favorite evangelists, Reinhard Bonnke, provided this example about Jesus’ blood, which I believe wonderfully expresses the power of the blood:
“If you are unclean and have soap, you will not be clean until you reach out and use the soap to wash.
- The same is true of Jesus’ blood:
- Just talking about it isn’t enough.
- It is insufficient to sing about it.
- Preaching about it isn’t enough.
To wash away your sins, you must apply it to your sinful life.” -Bonnke, Reinhard
2. JESUS’ BLOOD HAS THE POWER TO YOU SET YOU FREE.
Do you suffer from addictions, enslavement, sin, burdens, oppressions, or torments?
I’ve got some exciting news for you!
Jesus’ blood has the ability to set you free. His blood has endowed you with all you’ll ever require, even deliverance.
Don’t let the devil torture you; tell Him that the blood has cleansed you clean. Remember that the Bible says we defeat the devil via the blood of the Lamb and our witness.
Make a blood pact over your life, mind, and circumstances with your words.
The devil is reminded that he is a defeated opponent by Jesus’ blood. He has no authority over you anymore, but you do have authority over Him because of the blood.
Every benefit and blessing we have as a result of our redemption, including a complete and absolute victory over Satan, is due to Jesus and His victory over Satan on the cross. Because of Jesus’ sacrificial blood, we have defeated Satan.
3. THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, WE CAN HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.
When you think of fellowship, you probably think of time spent in the company of friends over coffee at a Bible study. The term “fellowship” refers to a feeling of closeness or friendship. That is what we have with God, but it came at a cost.
Adam had had companionship and communion with God before he fell in the Garden of Eden. Sin severed us from this great communion after Adam’s Fall, and it could only be restored by the blood of Jesus. You announce that you wish to receive Jesus’ companionship and friendship when you accept Him as your Lord and Savior, and the door is opened for you to do so!
You can come freely into God’s presence because of the power of Jesus’ blood. The blood of Jesus creates a powerful barrier between sin and those who have been made righteous in God’s sight via Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Communion is another word for fellowship. Taking Communion is one way we realize that the blood provided us connect with God. “Do this in memory of me,” Jesus said (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). That’s why Communion is more than a religious practice; it’s an acknowledgment of (and friendship with) what God accomplished for us through Jesus’ blood. God considers you a friend (John 15:15).
4. YOU ARE MARKED BY JESUS’ BLOOD
Do you recall the Egyptian account of the ten plagues?
The death of first-born children was one of those plagues.
The children of Israel were directed by God to mark their homes with the blood of a lamb. When the angel of death went about killing Egypt’s first-born children that night, he passed by the children of Israel’s houses because they were marked.
The blood on their doorposts was more than just a stain. It meant that God’s children were within and that the angel of death had no power over them. The blood had left an imprint on them.
As a born-again child or a child of God, you are now marked by the blood.
The devil can see the blood wherever you go.
God’s blessing is on you, His favor is on you, His grace is with you, and His angels are protecting you wherever you go.
You’re more than a person. You are a child of the Almighty God who has been marked by Jesus’ precious blood!
5. ASKING GOD FOR JESUS’ BLOOD
The Blood of Jesus has been given to us by God as a tremendous weapon to employ. This is our weapon, shield, and safe haven. The enemy is defeated by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony, no matter how he appears, whether through discouragement, temptation, disease, or any other means.
If you have the opportunity to purchase Billie Brim’s book The Blood and the Glory, I strongly advise you to do so. She goes into great detail about how to use Jesus’ blood to plead for forgiveness.
She says in her book that begging or senseless repetitions have nothing to do with imploring the blood.
Blood talks for you; it represents you in the same way that a lawyer does for his client. The devil is helpless in the face of blood; he has been defeated by it.
Don’t restrict the power of Christ’s blood to what you can comprehend.
The significance and power of His blood is the greatest mystery in the Christian life.
By faith, put it into practice. Be a God’s kid who practices the “sprinkling of the Lord Jesus Christ’s blood.” Sprinkle it everywhere you notice signs of strain, tension, or any other evil attempt to hinder God’s entire will in your life.
“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood sprinkling, that speaketh better things,” God desires it as a testament. (Hebrews 12:24).
The Blood Speaks, Praise the Lord!
6. THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, WE ARE REDEEMED.
You’re familiar with the plot. In the appearance of a serpent, Satan approached Adam’s wife, Eve, and misled her into disobeying God. Instead of obeying God, Adam followed Satan’s lead and did what he was taught. He made Satan his lord by doing so. When Adam bowed his knee to Satan, he relinquished the authority that God had bestowed on him. He made Satan the world’s illegitimate ruler.
Everything changed after that day. Death was passed on to all mankind with one transgression (Romans 5:12). Sin caused the earth and everything on it to be cursed, and man was separated from God. Doesn’t seem fixable, does it?
HOW DO YOU WASH OR COVER YOURSELF WITH JESUS’ BLOOD?
When you open your heart to Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you acknowledge that He died for your sin and washed it away with His blood
When you invite Him into your heart, He comes and washes away the old you with His blood, making you a new creation in Christ.
Now is the time to open your heart to Jesus if you have never done so before. Don’t wait any longer, go to this page and learn how to be saved.
The power of the blood of Jesus scriptures: My thought
The blood of Jesus Christ is the most valuable gift that God has given us. Despite this, many Christians are unaware of the blood’s power. Worse, many churches – even entire denominations – have abandoned teaching and singing about the blood and its healing power.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you know why blood is so important?
When you use the blood of Jesus, it does the following:
Allows you to be pardoned for your sins. “The law demands that practically everything is cleansed with blood, and forgiveness is impossible without the shedding of blood.” (NIV) Hebrews 9:22
“It gives you life.“Most certainly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you,” Jesus declared to them. (Matthew 6:53)
It helps to clear your mind. “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who gave Himself to God without stain through the everlasting Spirit, purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” 9:14 (Hebrews)
Allows you to approach God with confidence. “Having, therefore, boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus…” (Hebrews tenth chapter, verse 19)
You are sanctified. “For this reason, Jesus likewise suffered outside the gate, in order to sanctify the people with His own blood.” 13:12 (Hebrews)
You will be cleansed. “However, if we walk in the light as He walks in the light, we will have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, will cleanse us from all sin.” (Revelation 1:7)
He is a healer. “He carried our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds.” (NIV) (1 Peter 2:24)
Allows you to defeat the devil and his deeds. “And by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, they overpowered him…” (NIV) Revelation 12:11
