The Blood and Your Testimony November, 2013

Standard

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!

The Blood Of Jesus Frees Us From Satan! by Lanie Davvy October, 2012

Standard

I just do not know why people do not understand the whole concept of the power of the Blood of Jesus.  It is my hope and prayer that people will understand that it comes…this power with their Salvation.    It gives life.  It cleans us up from sin.  It protects us against enemy attacks.  It gives us overcoming power.  It makes us complete for every good work.  It brings peace.  It brings us closer to God.  There would be no church today without the Blood Of Jesus.  There is so much more…

  1 John 3: 8

New International Version (©1984)
He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

Jesus came to destroy the devil’s works.  He shed his Blood which washed away our sins and cleaned us up for all eternity.  Jesus died on the cross after he shed all of his Blood.  The devil took him into hell illegally.  Then Jesus whipped Satan and all of his crew and was resurrected in three days and now sits at the right hand of the Father.  His Blood is available to protect us like it did when he died on the cross.  This is all supernatural in other words in another realm that many cannot see.  But please know that after you received Salvation through the Blood of Jesus all of the power that Satan had over you was broken.   You have to know this! 

Through death He destroy [ed] him who had the power of death, that is, the devil; that is releas[ed]  those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  Hebrews 2: 14-15

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 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.” Rom 3:24-25

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more than, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Rom 5:8-9

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” Eph 1:7

“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world; But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” Eph. 2:12-13

“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” Eph 2:13

“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” Luke 22:20

When You Really Need The Blood of Jesus! by Elaine Davenport December, 2010

Jesus shed his Blood that we might live eternally…

 


“For the life of the flesh is in the blood:
and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:
for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”

Leviticus 17:11

 

I’ll just be honest with you.  When I grew up nobody talked about the blood of Jesus.  In fact, people used to get mad if you talked about faith. But, this is a new day.   There are many bible students who have delved into the Word of God and have found out more and have shared what they know and proven it to be true.  It’s safe to say that up until twelve years ago, I can directly remember not knowing about the Blood of Jesus!   That was 1998…the year that I had over three car accidentsI haven’t had one since.

After my last accident, I was so traumatized that I stopped driving.   That phobia  ended when my husband said he would not drive me to church.  He’s changed…but I’m glad he declined or I would have remained in bondage.

 

I plead the Blood of Jesus at night, in the morning or whenever I want to but I do it consistently.  In the bible the blood applied on the doorposts allowed the destroyer to pass over the children of Israel.  Those in Egypt who did not have the Blood covering saw the death of their first born male children.

 

For believers the Blood of Jesus is our protection, a covering, a shelter, a haven….and when I need that…healing, strengthening…I plead the Blood.

 

I wrote this because a lot of people have heard of pleading the Blood of Jesus…but really don’t understand it.

 

The Blood of Jesus always promises victory over Satan.

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

The Blood of Jesus allows us to enter into the throne room of Almighty God.

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 of Jesus sanctifies us!

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