You do not hear people preaching about it anymore. Only a few do it. How could something so important to us Christians be ignored?
We have replaced the message of the powerful blood of Jesus with “feel good” empty sermons.
The devil must be behind all this, he doesn’t want people to know about the blood that defeated him in calvary and rendered him powerless. He wants to keep Christians like us the same way : powerless and defeated.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…Revelations 12:11
WHY IS THE BLOOD OF JESUS IMPORTANT?
It was the blood of Jesus that paid for your sin, it paid for the sin of the whole world. His blood washed away the sin that tainted your life and kept you separated for God and on your way to hell.
The bible tells us that the payment for sin is death. That was the payment that you had to pay. But Jesus came, and with His precious blood paid the price so you and I can be saved.
Now our future is brighter, now we are called the children of God, and instead of hell, we can be sure that heaven is our home.
Morality may keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus Christ to keep you out of Hell. – Charles Spurgeon
UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS
1. THE BLOOD OF JESUS WAS NOT ORDINARY
If Jesus’s parents would’ve been Mary and Joseph then His blood would’ve been normal human blood just like yours. But that was not the case with Jesus because Joseph was not His dad. Jesus’s blood not only had the human side of His mother Mary but also had the power of His Father God. That is the secret of the Power of the Blood of Jesus. Just one drop of His blood was powerful enough to pay the price for the entire human race. Jesus was the lamb that God provided, He was the Lamb of God that was slain before the foundation of the world. His blood was not ordinary, it was holy and powerful to pay for the sin of the entire human race, past, present and future.
2. THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS THE POWER TO WASH AWAY ALL SIN
“If you are dirty and you have soap, you won’t be clean until you reach out and apply the soap and wash your yourself with it.
Same thing with the blood of Jesus:
It is not enough to talk about it. It is not enough to sing about it. It is not enough to preach about it. You have to apply it to your sinful life in order to wash away your sins.” -Reinhard Bonnke
3. THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS THE POWER TO MAKE YOU FREE
Do you struggle with addictions, bondages, sin, burdens, oppressions, torments?
I have good news for you!
The blood of Jesus has the power to set you free. His blood has provided for everything you will ever need, one of them is deliverance. Don’t let the devil torment you, remind Him that you have been washed by the blood. Remember, the Bible says that we overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Use your words to plead the blood over your life, your mind, and your circumstances.
4. THE BLOOD OF JESUS MARKS YOU
Do you remember the story of Egypt and the 10 plagues?
One of those plagues was the death of the first-born children.
God instructed the children of Israel to mark their houses with the blood of a lamb. That night when the angel of death went about killing the first-born children of Egypt, he passed over the homes of the children of Israel because their homes were marked. That blood on the doorpost of their homes was more than a stain. It signified that the children of God were inside and the angel of death had no authority over them. They were marked by the blood.
Now you, as a born-again child or God, you are marked by the blood.
Everywhere you go, the devil can see the blood.
Everywhere you go, the blessing of God is on you, His favor is on you, His grace is with you and His angels protect you.
You are not just a person. You are a child of the Almighty God marked by the precious blood of Jesus!
If you have a chance to buy the book The Blood and the Glory by Billie Brim, I highly recommended. She goes in depth explaining on how to plead the blood of Jesus.
The blood speaks for you, it represents you just like a lawyer represents his client. The devil has no answer to the blood, he was defeated by it.
