The Power of Jesus Christ Blood
It was through His death, and the shedding of His blood, that the Lord Jesus fulfilled the law's demands.
When He shed His blood He had devoted His whole life, to its very end. Through the blood of the everlasting covenant " God brought Him " again from the dead. He " entered heaven by his own blood," to make His reconciliation effective for us.
The blood, as we have already seen, that had done such wonderful things in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ,
Victory " through the blood of the Lamb " is the power of my life.
Jesus is the victor; so we need only to have our souls filled with the heavenly vision filled with faith in the blood by which Jesus Himself conquered, and with faith that He Himself is with us,
to maintain the power and victory of His blood: then we also " are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Faith brings the soul into direct contact with God, and the unseen things of heaven, but above all, with the blood of Jesus.
Belief in the power of the blood awakens in me a desire for an: experience of its power in myself; Live, Constantly, exercising faith in the assurance that " the blood cleanseth from all sin " ; yield yourself to be sanctified and brought nigh to God through the blood.
The Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus, and the casting out of Satan, were the results of the shedding of His blood. In you also, the sprinkling of the blood, The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." Where reconciliation and pardon are applied by the Holy Spirit, and are retained by a living faith,
the blood operates with a divine power, killing sinful lusts and desires ; the blood exercises constantly a wonderful cleansing power.
In the blood, the power of the death of Jesus operates; we died with Him to sin; through a believing intercourse with the blood
The blood sanctifies also. We have seen, that cleansing is but one part of salvation, the taking away of sin.
The blood does more than this; it takes possession of us for God, and inwardly bestows the very same disposition which was in Jesus when He shed His blood. In shedding that blood,
The blood sanctifies us for the emptying and surrender of ourselves, so that God may take possession of us, and fill us with Himself.
We have seen how the blood brings us near to God; leading to a priestlike approach, yea, we have liberty, by the blood, to enter into " The Holiest " of God's presence
We have seen that God attaches to the blood such incomprehensible value, that where the blood is sprinkled, there is His throne of grace.
When a heart places itself under the full operation of the blood, there God dwells, and there His salvation is experienced
The full blessing of the power of the blood, in its highest effect, is full abiding union with Jesus.
It is only through the blood that we are fitted for full fellowship with Jesus in heaven, just as with the Father.
In all our consideration about the blood of Jesus, we have had till now no occasion intentionally to stop there.
And of all the glorious things which the blood means, this is one of the most glorious-His blood is the sign, the measure, yes, the impartation of His love.
