Rev 12:10-11 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Our success and victory in this life depends on a vital living revelation of the power of the blood of Jesus in our life. We will never enjoy our full benefits as a Christian until we give the blood of Jesus its rightful place in our life.
(I Pet 1:18 KJV) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ. as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Lev 17:11 for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
(Heb 9:22 KJV) And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Now let’s look at what I’ll call the "Nine Wonders of the Blood".
(1)Salvation: (Eph 1:7 KJV) In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;
(2)Peace made: (Col. 1:20 KJV) And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven,
(3)Access into the presence of God: (Heb 10: 19 KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh;
(4)Deliverance: (Zec 9: 11 KJV) As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
(5)Clear conscience: (Heb 9: 14 KJV) How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
(6)Present cleansing: (I John 1:7 KJV) But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
(7)Protection: (Exo. 12: 13 KJV) And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood. I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
(8)There’s Healing in the blood: Isa 53:4-5 Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 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.
1Pet 2:24 Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
(9)The source of the Christian life: (John 6:56 KJV) He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
It may sound old fashioned, but I’m one of those who believe that there is still power in the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.
