As Christians, we plead the blood of Jesus, we sing about the blood, we even apply the blood of Jesus in prayers. The blood of Jesus is very powerful and potent. But how many of us actually realize how powerful it is?
The blood of Jesus is powerful enough to secure our victory, our healing, our breakthrough and authority over the devil. The very life of Jesus runs through His blood that was shed, and we must realize that it is available for us.
God loves us so much. That is the reason why He gave His only Son – Jesus, for our redemption. The basis of our salvation is the blood of Jesus. If Jesus hadn’t died, if he hadn’t shed His own blood, we wouldn’t have been saved from the power of sin and the devil. The blood of Jesus secured the New and perfect Testament for us. That is is why the Bible says in,
“Hebrews 9:16 and 22 (KJV) For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”
These two verses point to the fact that if Jesus had not shed His blood, we would not have been saved. Wow! Thank you Saviour for sacrificing your self for us. We are eternally grateful.
For us to deeply understand how powerful the blood of Jesus is, we need to see the significance of that precious blood and its importance. We need to know what the blood of Jesus has done, and what it can do. Knowing this will help us apply it more often and with reverence in our day to day challenges.
Why the blood of Jesus is so Significant
Our Fellowship with God is through the blood of Jesus:
We have fellowship with the Father through the blood of Jesus shed for us.
“Hebrews 10:19 (KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus”
In the old testament, the Israelites couldn’t enter the Holy of Holies because the blood was not available. However, when Jesus died, the veil of the temple, partitioning the Holy of Hollies from the other rooms was torn. Now every Christian can boldly proceed to commune with God through the avenue of the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Oh! What great privilege. What great love.
We have Healing by the blood of Jesus:
Our healing from sicknesses and infirmities has been secured by God. When you get sick, instead of thinking of using a drug or going to the hospital, why not plead the blood of Jesus? Why not ask for its healing power? The blood of Jesus is potent enough to heal us of any kind of illness be it cancer, or headache.
“Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) 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.”
The stripes laid on Jesus, that brought out blood has secured healing for us. We must realize this, we must also maximize it.
We have Authority over the devil:
We have authority over the devil through the blood of Jesus.
“Revelation 12:11 (KJV) 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.”
When the devil comes to torment you, the blood of Jesus is what you need to overcome him. Is the devil challenging you in your academics or in your marital life or in your children’s life? Why not take over the situation by applying the blood of Jesus. It is powerful enough to make the devil run and hide.
See, the devil doesn’t want you to know all these. That is why you need to understand how powerful the blood of Jesus is. Thanks to God for the blood of Jesus, we have access to the throne of God and a host of other privileges that we don’t often maximize. Instead of exclaiming when something bad wants to happen, why not shout the blood of Jesus? You will see as it would effect your victory.
If you have not given your life to Christ, you are missing a great deal. You can only win over sin and the devil through the blood of Jesus. Come, surrender your life to Christ today, and enjoy a turn around in every area of your life.
