What is the blood of Jesus Christ?
First of all there is alot going on in the spirit realm that Christians do not know about, we have taken so lightly the Name and the Blood of Jesus Christ that it means nothing to us. The Blood and the Name of Jesus have been reduced to mere expressions, and Christians do not know that the Blood is one of the redemptive gifts to silence the devil and his cohorts in your affairs.
Furthermore, there is power in the Blood of Jesus Christ, which gives us everything we need to live a victorious life, including redemption, healing, fellowship, protection, authority over the devil and his agents.
The Blood of Jesus means a lot more than a lyric in hymns or fulfilling an old tradition by partaking of the communion table. The blood of Jesus is a mystery, and we Christians can apply it in our daily lives.
What happens when you take the communion?
Some Christians do not understand what transpired when they drink the blood and eat the flesh of Jesus Christ. They see it as a mere bread and juice/wine that is why they do not see any changes in their lives. Jesus Christ Himself explained the significance of the communion
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness and are dead.
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread, which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews, therefore, strove among themselves, saying, how can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever.
The above scripture shows you can enjoy a lot of things just by taking the communion,
Christianity is practical, and it takes faith for you to start enjoying the redemptive gifts of Salvation. Many are too casual about the things of the Lord that is why they do not experience miracles. Matthew 13:58 “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
The blood is the life of the flesh is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11) in the same way, the life of Jesus is in the blood. As you drink the blood, your blood and the blood of Jesus is blends together, and whatever is not found in the blood of Jesus Christ cannot be found in you. Matthew 15:13 “But he answered and said, every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
The blood of Jesus Christ is so powerful that it nullifies every poison running through your bloodstream. All you have to do is believe that He is God, believe in His word and you will be empowered. John 1:12
John 6:51 Jesus Christ is the living bread, which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that He will give His flesh, which He has provided for the life of the world. You do not have to wait every Sunday before you partake of the communion, you can take it as your daily spiritual booster, which fixes everything that threatens your health. As Christians, we are meant to enjoy perfect health, and one of the covenant ways to enjoy divine health is to partake of the communion.
The blood of Jesus Christ purges and cleanses you; it takes away everything that is not glorifying God in your life. 1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
You enter into the new covenant
Ephesians 2:12-13 “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. when you take the communion, you enter into the covenant with God. Until you enter into the covenant with God through the blood of Jesus, you are not entitled to the Abrahamic order of blessings.”
Your protection from judgment is secured
Exodus 12:27 “that you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.’” So the people bowed their heads and worshiped.” When the accuser comes to accuse you, the blood of Jesus Christ in you will vindicate you.
You enjoy the unmerited favor of God
Ephesians 1:7 “7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
A clean slate (you have been justified)
Romans 3:24-25 “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 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.”
You can boldly enter into the holiest of the holies without consequences
Hebrews 10:19-22 “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”
You can proclaim your total victory
Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:11)
With the blood of Jesus Christ, you have victory over stagnation, failure, curses, sickness, diseases and every other thing that is not found in Jesus Christ.
