The Blood and Your Testimony November, 2013

ABLOODTESTIMONY

 

Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood
of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …and they did not love their lives to the death””

You know sometimes things can be right in front of our eyes and we can’t see it.  Happens all of the time.  I find myself watching certain movies more than once and everytime…everytime seeing something or hearing something for what seems like the “first” time.

And so…I look at Revelation 12:  11  It’s talking about something that already happened…but it’s a description about the future.  It’s one of those Gold Nuggets or gems that the bible holds for believers.  An unbeliever isn’t going to think that it makes sense.  To them it would be like finding a winning lottery ticket for a date that hasn’t come yet.  For real.  But for you…it is put there not to tell us just about how Satan can finally be defeated in the end times to be locked up for a thousand years…but also to tell us what to do when we face our greatest adversities!

It tells us two things :  that we overcome Satan…out man him…our adversary…our enemy…with THE BLOOD OF JESUS  …(and notice the conjunctive word or the bridge…)  AND  the word of our testimony…

The Blood of Jesus brings the victory…we know that part…but at the SAME TIME so also does our sharing our testimony…it brings the Blessing and not in any way that we can understand….just like pleading The Blood of Jesus brings victory, certainty and peace…so also does a simple thing like sharing our testimony!

After a horribly long brain surgery…I survived.  Though there are no signs of it now…I was left paralyzed on the left side of my body, with a unfaltering stutter , poor vision, not able to walk and amidst many skeptics.

So with that in mind…a wonderful group of Jehovah’s witnesses rang my doorbell.  I invited them all in…and they seemed quite comfortable in my Living room to hear my testimony about the Glory and the Goodness of God!

I’m sure they wondered how could I praise Him so passionately…for letting me live when I did not come out of the surgery perfect?  In fact, it would be a few more years before I would fully recover…but God did some outstanding things with me…during those times.

They didn’t get to see the full outcome…they never came back…yet I could see in their eyes…their being inspired by someone who wasn’t ashamed to declare God good!  Oh it was amazing to be used as a vessel to spread a message of hope, thankfulness, gratitude…

We all have work to do…so I ask God that He anoint each of us…to share our testimonies…with others…in this Holy Season…in Jesus Name.  So Be It!

Thank You For The Blood Of Jesus Christ! November, 2012

Standard

I want to express this in a way that does not sound confusing.  Jesus our Lord and Savior sacrificed himself and shed his Blood for those who choose to follow him.  I have studied about the Blood of Jesus and it has given me freedom.

 

Let me give you an example.  I was having horrid warfare in my sleep.  I was having way out nightmarrish dreams.  I do not watch scary movies nor do I sleep late.    These dreams fell strictly in the realm of satanic oppression; an attempt to put me in fear.  Stuff that was just unsettling.  I have people that write from all over the world describing awful dreams asking me to interpret them.   I am unable to do that.    I am able to get peace.  I found  the answer from one of my fellow prayer warriors.    She told me just to plead the Blood Of Jesus.    So I thought…of course I can do that…after all I wasn’t getting any sleep and I had no peace.  So…when it came time to lie down and get the sweet sleep that God promises in the bible…I jumped in the bed in faith and began  to plead the Blood Of Jesus over me, the bed, the bedroom, the house…and that’s all I remember.  I was snoring so loud having sweet sleep so good that I woke myself up!  And that’s the truth!  

So I’m going to be truthful with you:   I THANK GOD FOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS!  It covers, it protects, it gives me freedom, it gives me peace, increases my faith…it gives me boldness!  I know it’s real!

 

Matthew 26:28 – For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

The Symbol of The Blood of Jesus! by E. Davenport June 24, 2012

Born out of love…the Blood of Jesus is a symbol of God;s love for us!   It’s designed to cover and protect you!  

God loved us so much that He sent His son to die for us; who shed his blood  for the remission of our sins.  Jesus not only shed his blood, but he died, went down into hell and after three days after whipping up on the devil….he rose. 

Now that is some powerful blood, some amazing love.  You better know it and please do not forget it.

The Blood of Jesus has the power to heal you, to free you, to protect you, to cleanse you.  Apply it, use it, it’s yours…apply it in faith…and don’y forget the L O V E!!!

Something to chew on:

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.”

Everyday Miracles! Pleading The Blood Of Jesus! by E. Davenport January 29, 2012

Standard

There are so many questions and comments that come in to all of the sites; but the one that is the most intriguing is when people ask exactly what does it mean to plead the Blood Of Jesus.

 

The bible talks about  coming to God in worship in a correct way; he who worships God in spirit and in truth.  Another way of saying it might:  Be honest and realize that you are in the presence of Almighty God, respect Him, Honor Him and be sincere.

 

I have “discussed” with friends about “religion” and faith, but to them the two are both the same.

The truth of the matter is that faith is even misunderstood by many believers.  Too often, people think that because they are in a setting that is not their church, they cannot exhibit their faith as they would in their own church or around their friends.   Plain and simple to do so would be to deny Jesus with few exceptions and I totally realize there are some.

But, not praising God say at a Home going Service when invited to truly praise God because it isn’t our church may in fact be a “religious” act.  An act born out of traditions and habits that “seem” to be centered around God.  Our doing that…or compromising ourselves to allow the behavior of others in a spiritual environment; to impact our behavior…may actually be religious in nature and that pulls us away from honesty and sincerity!

 

Now…let’s talk about the Blood Of Jesus.   They are not just words.     I submit that Pleading The Blood Of Jesus is a Powerful Supernatural Event…and when you plead it with a pure heart…you open the door for an everyday miracle!

Jesus shed His Blood for us on the cross that we all who choose to make Him our Lord and Savior will have life forever!   There is no longer the sting of death!  We have the last laugh on that!

But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord.  1 Corinthians 2: 8

The Blood that Jesus shed is so powerful that it saved mankind from eternal damnation and the devil works so hard to convince people that it isn’t true so hell won’t be empty!

 

The precious Blood of Jesus is a protection fo us.  When we envision in our hearts and with our faith that it is smeared on us or covers us…we are protected.  But, it has to be by faith.  One night I prayed when getting in the bed that the Blood of Jesus would protect me and I envisioned that it was all over my bed, me, the sheets, the pillows…it brought about my breakthrough.  The devil stopped tormenting me in my sleep.  Oh I have faith in the Blood of Jesus and there are countless others!

 

My Blood Covenant! by E. Davenport December 11, 2011

John 3:16 

King James Version (KJV)

 

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

Jesus came to this earth, lived his life and performed miracles, signs and wonders backed by God….every action was an act of love.   The ultimate act was the action at the cross!  He shed his blood for me and you!   Yet, a lot of people don’t believe it.  In almost every case it’s because  whether they can admit ot or not…they couldn’t see themselves doing such a thing.  They can’t imagine there is that much love in the world.  I tell you…they don’t know what LOVe is!!

 

Jesus shed his blood for me….and I’m in covenant with Him.  I am committed to Him like He is committed to me! 

I’m tired of seeing all of the young people sold out for Jesus; while all of the older people have either grown lukewarm or afraid to publicly admit their passion for Him!

 

I’ve got a Blood Covenant and I am assured of eternal life!!!!!   Now, that’s something to SHOUT about!!!!!

 

HALLELUJAH!!!  HALLELUJAH!!!!  HALLELUJAH!!!!  LET IT RAIN!!!!
