A lot of people all over the world don’t understand that there is great power in the blood of Jesus Christ. In some places, the blood of Jesus is rarely mentioned. In this sermon, we would be taking a look at the wonders, the blood of Jesus Christ performs. So that you can appreciate what Jesus has done, lay hold of that power and begin to use it and tap into the unlimited benefits it offers. Let’s take a look at the benefits and wonders of the blood of Christ.
As for you also, by the blood of your covenant I have sent forth your prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water – Zech 9:11
There is deliverance power in the blood of Jesus Christ. It sets the captives free. Are you bound spiritually? You can lay hold of the power in the blood of Jesus and set yourself free with the help of GOD. The blood of Jesus Christ is like a red card to all demons and evil beings. When you plead, the blood of Jesus, you are banishing every demon or evil being away from your life.
Turn you to the strong hold, you prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will render double to you – Zechariah 9:12
There is power in the blood of Jesus for protection. When you plead the blood of Jesus Christ, a divine help is released to help you. You can cover yourself with the blood of Jesus any time. The stronghold in that name “Jesus” is powerful because of the blood and sacrifice he has paid. From today, plead the blood of Jesus and cover yourself and your household with the blood.
Christ carried our sins in his body on the cross so that freed from our sins, we could live a life that has God's approval. His wounds have healed you – 1 Peter 2:24
There is healing power in the blood of Jesus Christ. He was wounded and his wounds have healed you. Any deep wound would always involve shedding of blood. Beloved, Jesus suffered from deep wounds so you could be healed. His blood was shed for your healing. There have been testimonies from believers that got healed when they took the Holy Communion. I also took the communion and was healed. Remember the wine you take during communion symbolizes the blood of Jesus so when you take it, you believe you drank the blood of Jesus Christ. That blood is powerful. When you take the blood of Christ, you take in the divine life of Christ and you enjoy divine health. The blood of Jesus Christ has the power to heal. Hallelujah!
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleans us from all sin - 1 John 1:7
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from sin. It is God’s solution for propitiation or atonement for sin (Romans 3:25). If you are in Christ, the blood of Jesus washes away your sin. Any time you sin and then confess it to God and ask for forgiveness, the blood of Jesus washes away your sin. It has the power to cleanse your conscience and purge it from dead works (Hebrews 9:13-14).
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross – Colossians 1:19-20
The LORD made peace by the blood of JESUS. His blood is the blood of the new covenant of GOD with man. In the new covenant, old things are passed away, all things become new. By blood, you can go to GOD because you know he is at peace with you. Hallelujah! By the blood of Jesus Christ, every accusation against you is silenced. The accuser of the brethren is silenced, because the blood is speaking peace on your behalf. So when, the enemy comes in like a flood, you can rise up in the name of the LORD and plead the blood of JESUS and watch the LORD raise up a standard against Him. Glory be to GOD!
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death
– Revelations 12:11
Revelations 12:11 tells us that the blood of Jesus gave the saints victory over the devil. That’s what the blood does. It gives you victory over the enemy.
Shout “I have got victory over the enemy by the blood of Jesus Christ” Hallelujah!! Yea, victory is yours. The devil is defeated. You are a winner. Glory be to GOD! Any time you feel down and defeated, rise up and declare – "I am a winner in Christ Jesus". Always remember, Jesus has given you the victory. Hallelujah!
(7) Nearness to GOD:
But now in Christ Jesus you who sometimes were far off are made near by the blood of Christ – Ephesians 2:13
The Blood of Jesus Christ brings you closer to GOD. It removes the wall that separates man and GOD from close fellowship. By the blood of Jesus Christ, you can come closer to GOD and fellowship with Him.
Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that He might sanctify the people by His own blood – Hebrews 13:12
Sanctification is by the blood of Jesus. You can’t be sanctified by your own power. The blood of Jesus sanctifies. It purifies. It makes GOD accept you. When you are sanctified by the blood, GOD does not see your sins. He sees the righteousness of GOD in you. Remember, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You are sanctified by the blood of Christ.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him – Romans 5:9
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” - Ephesians 1:7
With the Blood of Jesus, salvation is sure. Our Lord Jesus Christ shed his blood for the salvation of your soul. His blood gives us access to GOD. Your own self righteousness cannot save you. It is his blood that saves you. It saves you from sin. It saves from eternal death. The blood justifies. It saves you from condemnation. It rescues you when you are in trouble. If you have accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour, when you plead the blood of Jesus, you get the Lord’s attention and angels are released to rescue you.
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus - Hebrews 10:19
By the blood of Jesus you can have the confidence or the boldness to enter into the throne room of GOD. Not being mindful of your weaknesses or sins, but being mindful of what the Lord has done for you. The blood of Jesus empowers you. It clothes you so you can look presentable before GOD. Without the blood, you will be wearing a filthy rag called self righteousness but with the blood, you are clothed with the robe of righteousness and heaven opens up for you when you pray. You can come into the throne room of GOD and enjoy fellowship with the Lord. Beloved, for as long as the confidence is in you and you do not doubt, whatever favour you ask the Lord for, shall be given unto you.
Isn't that wonderful? If it is wonderful to you, I would like to encourage you to tap into benefits of the blood of Jesus Christ and begin to enjoy the deep riches of grace in Christ Jesus.
Beloved, it is a new day for you. Your life would never be the same as you begin to gain access into the mystery of the blood of Jesus Christ and enjoy its benefits. So shall it be, in Jesus precious name. Amen!
