The Power of the Blood of Jesus

Salvation, forgiveness, inner healing, physical healing, deliverance and a life of victory in the glory all start with the Blood of Jesus.

If we get a revelation of the power of the precious blood of Jesus, we will always be in the position of victorious living in the abundant life that Jesus purchased for us on the cross!

FORGIVENESS through the Blood of Jesus.

The blood of Jesus was shed for the forgiveness of our sin, once and for all.  Because of the tremendous price that Jesus paid for our freedom, He also expects us to forgive those who trespass against us, just as He forgave us our debt.  This has to be an ongoing way of living – up to seventy times seven times.

Unforgiveness and bitterness in our hearts invite the tormentors according to Matt.18:23-35.

Ask God to give you the grace to forgive – not only those who have wounded you, but also to forgive yourself because of the price that Jesus paid for your freedom.

 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:8-9

When the Lord forgives us, He never thinks of it again:  Heb.8:12/Ps.103:14/Is.43:25

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more” (Heb.8:12)

Jesus was shedding His blood for us from Gethsemane to the cross.

He was sweating blood through the agony of His soul in Gethsemane.

He was beaten with sticks, then scourged with 39 stripes, paying the price for our healing. He was bleeding inwardly (bruised for our iniquities), chastised for our peace.

The crown of thorns was beaten into His head with sticks, then He carried the cross on the Via Dolorosa on a bleeding body.  After that He was crucified – the Lamb of God without sin, paying the ultimate price of obedience to death so that we can go free.  Then the sword was stuck into His side, causing water and blood to come forth, signifying the coming forth of His bride from His side. This is a mystery.

The life is in the blood and through His death and resurrection He gave us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10).

“Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”

Isaiah 53:4-5

The blood of Jesus also brought us nigh unto Him.

But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Eph.2:13

Through the Blood an new living way was opened for us to enter into communion-union with God:

Therefore brethern, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the Holies of holies by the power and virtue in the blood of Jesus….. Heb.10:19-20 Amplified Bible

We have been redeemed from the curse of the law through the blood of Jesus and entered into grace, by which we stand!

The blood of Jesus did all these things for us (and more) and as we receive all that He provided for us by faith, we step into a new and living way of abundant life.

“It is finished!”

When we call the power of the blood against any demonic activity, it has to bow and depart!  The devil knows the power of the blood, but do we?!

Walking with a Pure Heart

 

Walking with a Pure Heart

Many are walking around with deep hurts and wounds and in this season God is dong a work in the heart of His bride to get her in shape for the great glory that is going to be poured our on the earth. He is bringing old issues to the surface through dreams, conversations, even through movies and various other ways. His purpose and intent is to cleanse and heal hearts through His precious blood so that we can fulfill our call and destiny in Christ while walking in the authority of our true identity.

Discovery Of My Heart Condition

One of the first revelations I received from the Lord was about the heart. At the time I was leading a house meeting with ladies from many different denominations and I was very excited to teach about a pure heart. I was fully persuaded that my heart was absolutely pure until I came home after the meeting. I led the prayer in asking the Lord to show us anything in our hearts that could grieve Him.  

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Jer.17:9-10 KJV

The result was a deep conviction of the Holy Spirit of sin, righteousness and judgment (John 16:8). The fear of the Lord fell heavily upon me as I saw the condition of my heart. For three days I was in the river of God, undergoing a deep cleansing with much repentance and forgiveness. Through the years God has graciously done a work of sanctification in me, but yet there are deeper levels which I am discovering now by the illumination of the Holy Spirit.

Let us earnestly pray like King David, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts; and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24)

Understanding Of The Heart’s Postion And Its Contents

Let’s take a look at the heart and get an understanding of its position and its content.

You are a spiritual being, having a soul and living in a body. 


The heart is the central station of our being through which everything moves – our thoughts (Ps.19:14) emotions (Phil.1:7), choices (Ps.9:1), impressions and receptivity (Acts 2:37), as well as our conscience (1 John 3:21), which is part of our spirit being. In other words the heart consists of the soul (thoughts, emotion and will) and a part of our spirit man, the conscience.

Out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths speak (Luke 6:45). If we bring forth good, it will produce blessing; if we bring forth evil, it will produce curses.  Often our hearts are full of toxins which defile us when we speak about it (Matt.15:18-20). Our mouths will come under control of the Holy Spirit to bring forth blessing in our lives because we will eat the fruit thereof. 

The heart stores all negative memories of trauma and it is necessary that the archives be cleared out through forgiveness and repentance. Then we apply the precious blood of Jesus to cleanse and heal us through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

It is also with our hearts that we believe. 

But what does it say? 

“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”

 (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus

 and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, 

you will be saved. Romans 10:8-9 NKJV

Guarding Our Hearts

We need to watch over our hearts.

Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:23 – Amplified Bible

 Our five natural and spiritual senses are the gateways into our heart.  Therefore those senses need to be sanctified by the blood of Jesus and we need to turn away from anything that defiles.

The Lord promises that the pure in heart shall see God. (Matt.5:8)

God Wants to Heal and Restore Your Heart!

The Lord has made full provision for you through His amazing sacrifice on the cross.  He wants you to fulfill your call and your destiny in Christ and bring you into a glorious freedom in His abundant life! Let us journey into your freedom together!

Prayer:  Father God, we come to You in the name of Jesus, asking that You will show us anything in our hearts that are not pleasing Your sight.  Please give us the grace for repentance and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Thank You, Lord. Amen.

Now, simply make a list of anything that comes to your remembrance. Do not try to work on it by the natural mind. Simply trust the Lord to show you and give you the grace to work it through until your memory is cleansed, your burden is gone and the trauma of it is removed forever.  

Sometimes we do not want to remember deep hurts, offenses and traumatic events.  But know that God’s loving kindness has made provision for us through the blood of His Son that we can receive complete healing and restoration to walk free of all remembrance of trauma. Liberty in the Spirit is your portion!  Hallelujah!
