The Power in the Blood of Jesus
The song says “There is power power wonder working power in the Precious Blood of the Lamb. This is so true. Christians have a full arsenal of power that is available to them for fighting the forces of the enemy offensively and defensively. However, in order for these weapons to be effective is to use them.
The Blood of Jesus was the defeat of the enemy. When Jesus hung on the cross as 100 percent man and 100 percent God our redemption as sinful man was secured. We now have access to the throne of God all because of the shed Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. The clincher is that the Devil knows this bit of information and trembles when a born again believer knows the power of the Blood of Jesus.
This Blood must be applied in order to be effective. Just as in the Old testament when the Lord was releasing the children of Israel from Egyptian slavery, the blood of lambs was required to be applied on the sideposts and lentils of their homes. When the Israelites were obedient to this the angel of death passed by their homes. This story was used to show that this protection was not automatic. The Israelites had to be obedient and apply the blood then the results were received.
Over the years I have heard many say “ The devil cannot cross the blood line”. This bit of information is true, however, if that line is not applied in the believer’s life, the devil will take advantage of every ignorance in the believer’s life. Paul said in the Word of God “know him lest he get advantage of you”. We must know the strategies of the enemy and know that he is the “father of lies” as Jesus called him. We are not to be passive in our battle with the forces of the enemy. We must be sober and vigilant.
1 Peter 5:8:Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
The Bible tells us to resist the devil and he will flee. That is why when we are under attack we cover ourselves and every situation with the Holy Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. When we are soaked in His Blood the enemy does not have a chance to do anything at all.
Luke 10:19:Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Jesus paid a price for us to be saved from the fires of hell . Additionally we can enjoy a prosperous life here on this earth by employing the spiritual resources that he has given us in the Word of God.
James 4:7: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Example prayer: I cover myself and my family in the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. I soak everything that the Lord has given me in the Blood of Jesus. Thank you for your precious blood in Jesus name-Amen
