“For this is the blood that seals the new covenant. It will be poured out for many for the complete forgiveness of sins.”
Matthew 26:28 TPT
Today we, as Christians, remember the perfect sacrifice of Jesus – and through His blood, the complete forgiveness of our sins.
In the Church, we talk about “pleading the blood” and being “covered in the blood.”
Saved by the blood.
Cleansed by the blood.
Protected by the blood.
But how often do we really examine the fullness of the blood of Jesus…just what it actually did (and continues to do) and how it applies to our lives, today?
I want to share a teaching by Derek Prince on How to Apply the Blood. The teaching is just over an hour. It’s an excellent message to sit and meditate on, especially today (Good Friday). Derek Prince talks about the seven-fold sprinkling of the blood of Jesus and how to apply it to our lives. He also gives us examples of declarations (backed by the Word) that we can confess over our lives, concerning the Blood.
I pray that as you listen to this teaching, that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, would receive an even deeper revelation of what Jesus did through the shedding of His precious blood.
I am including the confessions spoken in the message, and some Scripture. I highly encourage you to write them down and confess them over your life (this would be great on a battle board).
Be blessed, beloved, and continue to apply the blood of our powerful and precious Savior, Jesus Christ!
We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the Word of God says the Blood of Jesus does for us.
They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death. Revelation 12:11 HCSB
Through the Blood of Jesus, I have been redeemed out of the hand of the devil.
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV
While I walk in the light, the blood of Jesus cleanses me now, and continually, from all sin.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 NIV
Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, acquitted, not guilty, reckoned righteous, made righteous, just as if I’d never sinned.
Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! Romans 5:9-10 NIV
Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, set apart to God, separated from sin, made holy with God’s holiness.
For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time. Under the old covenant, the priest stands and ministers before the altar day after day, offering the same sacrifices again and again, which can never take away sins. But our High Priest offered Himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then He sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Hebrews 10:10-12 NLT
Lord Jesus, when we receive Your blood, in it we receive Your LIFE – the life of God – divine, eternal, endless life.
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. Leviticus 17:11 NIV
When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body. Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar? 1 Corinthians 10:16-18 NLT
Thank You, Lord, that even when I cannot pray, the blood of Jesus is pleading for me in Heaven.
No, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless thousands of angels in a joyful gathering. You have come to the assembly of God’s firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God himself, who is the judge over all things. You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect. You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24 NLT
Thank You, Lord, that through the sprinkled blood of Jesus, I have access into the presence of Almighty God – into the holiest place in the universe.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By His death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting Him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Hebrews 10:19-23 NLT
