The Blood of the Lamb

Nas John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.

 

SATAN HAS 3 OBJECTIVES; STEAL, KILL & DESTROY

 

THE 2 MAIN VICTORIES OVER SATAN

  1. HE MADE IT POSSIBILE FOR US TO OBTAIN FORGIVENESS OF SIN

  2. HE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO RECEIVE GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH.

AMP Heb 10:22 In fact under the law almost everything is cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness [neither release from sin and its guilt, nor cancellation of the merited punishment].

 

Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

 

Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

NOTICE THAT PHRASE… “JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD”

 

JUSTIFY AND JUSTIFICATION ARE KEY WORDS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

TO JUSTIFY ACTUALLY MEANS; “TO MAKE RIGHTEOUS, TO AQUIT FROM SIN, TO HOLD GUILTLESS”

DEFINITION OF JUSTIFICATION – “THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, I AM JUSTIFIED – (JUST-AS-IF-I’D) NEVER SINNED”

 

2 Cor 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

THE BIBLE REFERS TO THE BLOOD AS A WEAPON OF VICTORY

 

Eph. 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace,

 

2 THINGS ARE PROVIDED FOR US BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS; REDEMPTION AND FORGIVENESS OF SINS

TO MAKE THESE PROVISIONS EFFECTIVE IN OUR LIVES WE HAVE TO MAKE THE APPROPRIATE TESTIMONY.

 

PSALM 107:2 SAY’S “Let the redeemed of the lord say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.

 

WE MUST USE OUR PERSONAL TESTIMONY.

 

“THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, ALL MY SINS ARE FORGIVEN. THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED OUT OF THE HAND OF SATAN”

 

Rev. 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night. 11 “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death.

 

1 Pet. 1:17 And if you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each man’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay upon earth; 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

 

UNDER THE OLD COVENANT, THE BLOOD OF THE PASSOVER LAMB WAS APPLIED TO THE HOMES OF ISRAELITES.

 

OUR HYSSOP IS OUR TESTIMONY

JESUS LAST SUPPER WAS A PASSOVER MEAL!   A COVENANT MEAL
