The Blood: Forgiveness

Hebrews 9:22 “Without the shedding of blood, there is
no remission of sins.”

1 John 1:7″… the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth
us from all sin.”

Revelation 1:5 “… Unto him that loved us, and washed us
from our sins in his own blood.”

The Blood: Victory

Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood
of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …”

The Blood: Sanctification

Exodus 29:37 “Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for
the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy…”

Hebrews 10:10 “… we are sanctified through the offering of the
body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

Hebrews 13:12 “Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify
the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.”

The Blood: Assurance and Reconciliation

Colossians 1:20 “And you, that were sometime alienated and
enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled …”

Hebrews 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who
through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
purge your conscience …”

Hebrews 10:19, 22 “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter
into the holiest by the blood of Jesus … Let us draw near with a true
heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an
evil conscience …”

The Blood: Protection

Exodus 12:13 “… 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.”

The Blood: Conditional Cleansing

But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations]. 1 John 1: 7

  1. Beloved, the time is perilous. The fields are white and ready for the harvest.
    The enemy is at work in all facets of humanity with his intent to steal, kill and destroy.
    The above seems as generalities taken from scripture. Jesus said, “When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times (Mt. 16. 2,3)?”
    I don’t suggest, for an instant, any form of hypocrisy in the readers nor any spiritual ineptness. As I read the passage, I am reminded how obviously we are approaching the end times.
    Heating oil is $3.05/gal., the production of ethanol is depleting grain supplies causing the cost of food to skyrocket, abortion is epidemic and will become even greater with the next administration, today’s generation of youth is the most unevangelized ever to live in this nation. Even more alarming is the Church is irrelevant and powerless to do anything about it. Every denomination is moving toward interfaith apostasy.
    The question begs an answer, “What shall the true Church do?”
    Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
    And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
    Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
    Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
    Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
    Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God (Joel 2. 12-17)?
    I’m one person, just a guy on the street. I can only speak to one person at a time. Those who are capable of speaking to hundreds seem only interested in leading their congregations in Purpose Driven Apostasy; the church services seem to have driven the Holy Spirit away. The leaders never seem to address the true issues but are content in keeping people on an ecclesiastical treadmill that keeps the paycheck coming.
    There is no anointing on the sermons; nothing to stir the spirit; nothing to convict the conscience; no impetus to follow after God. Just a dose of dead religion for the week.
    Every week I enter church expecting and leave disappointed.
    Where am I wrong?
    I believe we must pray for those in leadership, including music ministers and Sundie Skool teechers to not beat at the air anymore; forsake the gratification of self and seek God as never before. Every one of them should be out of bed by 4:00 a.m., seeking the face of God diligently, every day for their ministry is not a treadmill but that which should be an oracle of the eternal destiny of those they face every Sunday. There is no anointing because men are not serious about prayer. When was the last time you or I heard of the ministers of the Lord weeping between porch and altar?
    Don’t even begin to tell me they are. If they were, the churches would not be so dead. The messages would affect the hearts of men. The young people would not be so impatient to get out of church and into their worldly activities. Divorce would not be rampant. Men would be getting saved.
    If you have any interest, at all, in the souls of men, you will fast and pray, give up hours of precious sleep, call on God to have mercy and get those leaders into His presence, however He may (even by brokenness, persecution and misery), so that the Holy Spirit return to His church and make her relevant again.

  2. Thank you having these scriptures online helped me minister to a woman who was being tourtured with dreams of her 8 month old baby dying I told her to annoint the child with blessed oil and plead the blood of Jesus over the child and provided her with scriptures that detail the power of Jesus blood. I also told her that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power love and an sound mind and that Jesus himself battled the devil with GOD’s Word!!!!

    • Dearest Mozelle…I thank God that He had you in the right place at the right time to minister. You were so on target. I’d like to add that when people dream, satan tries to take advantage of any fears …and he will have his way IF WE LET him…but he’s a defeated foe. Please tell her that I and many others plead the Blood of Jesus over our beds at nighttime and quote scriptures on sleep from God’s word; fully expecting to sleep peacefully! n Blessings & Love

  3. Thanks for the Bible passages, they are helping me realize how important
    The word of our saviour in John John 6:53-58
    53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

    54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day….

    MT. 27 he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for xthis is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for amany bfor the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you cin my Father’s kingdom.”

    This gift of changing the wine into the Blood of our Lord was passed on to the 12 apostoles when he said
    Luke 22:19
    New International Version (NIV)

    19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

    This still is happening on every Catholic Alter. Thanks for posting the passages, and for allowing me to post. I hope i did not ofend anyone, but felt the obligation to share in the hope that anyone was looking.
    The peace of our Lord be with you.
