COMMENT: A couple of years ago Joe Gold, bodybuilding pioneer, passed away at the age of 82. In 1977 the bodybuilding documentary “Pumping Iron” made Gold’s Gym famous and jump-started Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film career. Mr. Gold is one of the reasons why many Americans have an obsession with a “great body”. Recently I read some additional information about the world’s preoccupation with the “outer man”. More men are going under the plastic surgeon’s knife than ever before. Liposuction surgery, hair transplants and even calf and pectoral implants are becoming more popular with the male species. Because we live in this society, it is so easy to get caught up in this body beautification craze. I grant you the fact that the body of a born again Christian is the temple of God because the Holy Spirit dwells in us; therefore, we should take good care of it. However, like everything else in the world, we should not become mesmerized by it because it is only temporary and will soon fade away. As children of God, our main concern should be the fortification and building up of that inner man with the word of God. That is the only way we can lead a successful and overcoming life. Compared to eternity,  life on earth is extremely brief. 
POST SCRIPT: I confess that I go to Gold’s Gym every other day; however, you couldn’t tell it by looking at me.

WISE SONG LYRICS: JESUS DRAW ME CLOSE, CLOSER LORD TO THEE. LET THE WORLD AROUND ME FADE AWAY. JESUS DRAW ME CLOSE, CLOSER LORD TO THEE. FOR I DESIRE TO WORSHIP AND OBEY.

Blood Currency! June, 2013

CoveredbyBlood

When I was in kindergarten, they said that one day I would graduate from high school.  It seemed a long ways off.  I had no proof that would happen.  No promise that I would even live that long\, but sure enough one day I did.   The same thing happened with marriage and having children and many of the milestones in my life.  There was a time that I could see none of these things; but they all came to pass.  I had faith for them to happen.  Well I have been told that  I will be given eternal life after I gave my heart to Jesus and made him my Lord and Savior.  I have faith to believe that.

 

So many people do not understand why followers of Christ embrace the Blood of Jesus which they cannot see.  I see it everywhere I go.  I see it over my bed, around m house around my family, around my car, anywhere I am led to put it.  It is my protection, my defense, it is the currency that was necessary to save me from the pit of hell.

 

Romans 3:25 states, “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through FAITH IN HIS BLOOD, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.”

Perfect Protection in 2013 By Elaine Davenport January 1, 2012

When you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior something very amazing happens!   He marks you with his precious blood from the inside out!  And you are protected.  I still personally plead the Blood of Jesus over myself and my family on a regular basis, it gives me great peace and confidence.  Here are some scriptures on the blood of Jesus and they collectively tell the story…the Blood Of Jesus will provide you with perfect protection in 2013, but you gotta use 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.

Hebrews 9:12 – Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us].

Hebrews 10:29 – Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Hebrews 10:4 – For [it is] not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Hebrews 9:9 – Which [was] a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

Colossians 1:14 – In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins:

Ephesians 2:14 – For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us];

PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR SOLDIERS AND COVER THEM WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS!    THANK YOU.

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my

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!
