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?!

Increase your Expectancy for the Double Portion

IMG_4921In a time of corporate worship, I sensed the Spirit saying, “Increase your expectancy for Me to do far above what you can pray or think” – whatever your circumstances may be.

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)

 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

Nor have entered into the heart of man

The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

 We need to take our eyes off the difficulty of the circumstances or the size of the mountain before us, letting go of negative expectancy and fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. He will give us the victory.

In this meeting a lady, who had a big struggle with a family situation, received total freedom and great joy as she let go of the burden, putting her trust and expectancy in Jesus to work it out.

Hebrews 12:1-2 (NKJV)

The Race of Faith

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 The great cloud of witnesses shows us that there are many who have come through life’s difficulties victoriously, cheering us on to persevere by faith!  The instruction is to throw off the worries and cares (burdens) and the sin (of unbelief and doubt), looking unto Jesus who will take us through.  He showed us the way of perseverance while going through the most horrific events thinkable, because His eyes were on the end-result – the joy which He kept before Him in seeing His Bride by faith and receiving His place as the Victorious One at the right hand of the throne of God.

So, instead of expecting the negative, pray for God’s glory to invade your situations, praising Him for His favor, grace and lovingkindness to work things out for His glory – then raise your expectancy for miracles!

Then twice the Lord gave me the following Word, which is repeated twice in this passage).

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion,

and instead of disgrace (confusion) you will rejoice in your inheritance (portion)

And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” – Isaiah 61:7

A double portion is coming to those who will keep trusting the Lord, their eyes fixed on Him to do the seemingly impossible.

Do not let the difficulty of your situation limit your expectancy, but fix your eyes on the Victorious One, remembering that all things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9:23).   Hallelujah!

Therefore, whatever your current challenge, struggle or mountain may be, let go of your limited natural sight and understanding.  Look away from the problem and look unto the amazing miracle power and might of our Lord.  Only believe with great expectancy for your double portion inheritance and let the sound of His Word recalibrate your mindset and you declare the victory with rejoicing!   Glory to God!

Day 16 – Intercede in the Spirit

Praying man

As I was getting dressed yesterday the Lord quickened the Word, “He lives to intercede for us” and I was totally overcome by the realization that the King of kings and Lord of lords is His glorious splendor is brooding over every one of His creation, interceding for us, having compassion on our weaknesses, and pulling us with cords of love to surrender to Him and receive our full inheritance in Him.  All this is because He shed His blood for each one of us and desires intimate fellowship with each of us.  Continue reading “Day 16 – Intercede in the Spirit”
