The life and flesh
John 6:53, Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink the blood, you have no life in you. (54) Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. (55) For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. (56) He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. (57) As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.”
Leviticus 17:11, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes atonement for your souls. (14) for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefore I say to the children of Israel, ‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, (speaking of animal blood) for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off’.”
I Peter 1:2, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: (18) knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver and gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, (19) but with the precious blood of Christ, as a lamb without blemish and without spot.
Hebrews 9:18, Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without the blood. (19) For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of the calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both kook itself and all the people (20) saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you.” (21) Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. (22) And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. (23) Therefore it is necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifice than these. (24) For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: (25) not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another- (26) He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. (27) And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment (28) so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Revelation 12:11, And they overcame him (the accuser of the brethren) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Ephesians 2:13, But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (16) and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.
Romans 3:24, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, (25) whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.
Ephesians 1:7, In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (13) In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
Acts 20:28, Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
Romans 5:9, Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Romans 3:24, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (25) whom God set forth as a propitiation through His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.
Hebrews 10:29, Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
Hebrews 13:12, Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. (13) Therefore let s go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach.
John 6:53, (Amplified) And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood]. (54) He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day. (55) For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink. (56) He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him.
Revelation 7:14, And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb”.
I John 1:6, If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (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.
I Corinthians 10:16, (Amplified) The cup of blessing [of wine at the Lord’s Supper] upon which we ask [God’s] blessing, does it not mean [that in drinking it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the blood of Christ (the Messiah)? The bread which we break, does it not mean [that in eating it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the body of Christ?
I Corinthian 10:25, (Amplified) Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
Revelation 7:9-14, “After this, I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number… which stood before the throne, and before the Lamb… and they cried with a loud voice saying, ‘Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb’. These are they which came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes and make them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Access to God
Hebrew 9:7, But into the second part the high priest went alone, once a year, not without the blood, which he offered for himself and for the people’s sins committed in ignorance. (11) But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. (12) Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once and for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (18) Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.
Hebrews 10:19, Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, (20) by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, (21) and having a High Priest over the house of God (22) 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.
Hebrews 9:14, (Amplified) How much more surely shall the blood of Christ, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own preexistent divine personality] has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the [ever] living God?
Hebrews 13:20, (Amplified) Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and Giver of peace], Who brought us again, from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, but the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), (21) strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will: [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages) Amen (so be it)
Exodus 12:13, “Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.”
Joshua 2:18, unless you bind this line of scarlet cord (representing the blood) in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home. (6:17) Now the city shall be doomed by the Lord to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent. (23) And the young men who had been spies went in and brought out Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers and all that she had. So they brought out all her relatives and left them outside the camp of Israel.
Isaiah 65:8, Thus says the Lord: “As the new wine is founding the cluster, and one says, ‘Do not destroy it, for a blessing is in it’, so I will do for My servants’ sake, that I may not destroy them all.”
The Blood of Jesus is Alive
The Blood of Jesus purges me of ever defilement of the enemy.
The Blood of Jesus keeps and guards my mind day and night.
The Blood of Jesus prevents deception
and aborts every attempt of the enemy to deceive me.
The Blood of Jesus is my divine covering
and protection against all the fiery darts of the evil one.
Yea, the Blood of Jesus is Alive!
So full of life and grace it perfects that which concerneth me-reconciling everything in me to the perfect will of God every day and in every way.
The following quotes are taken from the book Free at Last by Larry Huch:
The Jewish people understood the teaching of the blood. When they needed forgiveness, they put the blood on the altar of the temple. When they needed mercy, they put blood on the mercy seat. When they needed to hear from God, they put blood on the veil so they could enter into the Holy of Holies and be in the presence of God. When they needed peace, they brought a blood sacrifice. When they needed healing, they brought a blood sacrifice. Every time they needed a miracle, they offered a blood sacrifice. (See Leviticus 1-7)
But believers in Jesus Christ aren’t bound by the Law of Moses. By Jesus’ death on the cross, Jesus became the curse so that we can be delivered from the curse and be a blessing to our family, church, city, and nation. Poverty is a curse. Sickness is a curse. Disease is a curse. Divorce is a curse. Drugs, alcohol, and abuse are all part of the curse. When we are under the blood of Jesus, we are redeemed from the curse. As He hung dying on the cross, Jesus said, “It is finished” (John 19:30). Our redemption through the new blood was made complete at the cross.
Seven Places Jesus Shed His Blood: Before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with the finger seven times…Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, cleanse it, and consecrate it. (Leviticus 16:14, 19) Jesus shed His blood seven places that you and I might be made whole, forgiven of our sins, and set free from the bondage of sin and the iniquity that has entered into our families.
In Gethsemane, Jesus won back our willpower; Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like drops of blood falling down to the ground. When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation. (Luke 22:43-46) The first Adam surrendered our willpower to Satan. The second Adam, Jesus, redeemed our willpower by saying, “Father not My will, but Thy will, “and sweating great drops of blood. Jesus won the battle, broke the curse, redeemed us, and gave us back our willpower. Because Jesus shed His blood, you can say yes to the will of God for your life and no to the enemy of your life.
The Stripes on Jesus’ back won back our health: But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5) All sickness, no matter where it comes from – birth, inheritance, injury – is from the devil.
Jesus’ crown of thorns won back our prosperity: Because you heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, “You shall not eat of it”, Cursed is the ground for your sake: for toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your brow you shall eat bread till you return to the ground. (Genesis 3:17-19) On the way to Pilate, as they were mocking Jesus, “All hail, King of the Jews,” they saw a thorn bush – the symbol of the curse of poverty on the land. They took some of the thorn bushes, wove them into a crown, and placed them on the brow of Jesus until the blood flowed from His head. (See Matthew 27:29) The symbol of poverty was placed on the brow of Jesus, the second Adam. When those thorns pierced His brow, He shed His blood for our redemption from poverty. We were cursed with poverty by the sweat of Adam’s brow, but we were redeemed from the curse of poverty by the blood on Jesus’ brow. What Satan means for evil, God will use for good.
Jesus’ pierced hands won back dominion over the things we touch: When Jesus bled from His hands, dominion was returned to God’s children. That means whatever evil we encounter, we have authority in Jesus’ name to render it harmless. They shall take up serpents: and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. (Mark 16:18) You need to lay hands on your children, and say, “I break the iniquity off my kids. I break the iniquity off my family.” You need lay hands on your child’s pillow and declare that they are going to serve God. You need to lay your hands on your children’s school and cover it with the blood of Jesus. If you have an unsaved husband, lay your hands on your husband’s pillow and release the anointing of the Spirit of God. Take authority over those demons of iniquity and, all of a sudden, Dad is going to start opening the Bible and reading it. He said he would never go to church, but now he’s getting the blood of Jesus the moment you take authority over the enemy, and the Holy Spirit is loosed to bring God’s promises to pass in your life.
Jesus’ pierced feet won back dominion over the places we walk: The blood shed from His feet also redeemed us from our loss of dominion and authority. Man was supposed to be the head and not the tail. Man was supposed to be above only and not beneath. (see Deuteronomy 28:13) … But through Jesus’ shed blood, we don’t have to be trampled by Satan. Instead, we are to trample him! We are commanded to “go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15 NIV) As believers, you have the authority to walk around your neighborhood and say, “I bind the devil in my neighborhood. I bind the drug addicts and the dope dealers.” You can walk through the schools and say, “I bind violence, I bind homosexuality, I bind perversion, and I bind the New Age teaching.” Because wherever you go, God is with you. When you bind the devil, our next step is to loose the peace of Jesus in our streets. Loose the righteousness of Jesus in our cities. Truly I say to you, whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 18:18 NASB)
Jesus’ pierced heart won back our joy: But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they broke not his legs; but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. (John 19:34 KJV) Jesus was anointed with the burden-removing, yoke-destroying power of God to heal the brokenhearted. Why the brokenhearted? Because God desires for His people to live in joy. When we are filled with joy, we have the strength to fight the good fight of faith. The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) God can take even the worst things that happen to you and turn them to good. No matter what it is, the power of Jesus’ blood will reverse it to your prosperity and your blessing. Healing broken hearts is not something we can do ourselves; it is something God has already done. We must claim it.
Jesus’ bruises won our deliverance from inner hurts and iniquities: But He was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5) Not only was He wounded for our transgressions; this verse says, “He was bruised for our iniquities.” As we discussed before, iniquity means “a wicked act or sin,” but the Holy Spirit has shown me that iniquity can also be understood as any spirit that breaks us down. It is a spiritual force on the inside that pressures us to bow or bend under its destructive nature. When someone has suffered a physical blow, they develop a discolored bruise. Yet a person who has been bruised on the inside often doesn’t show that hurt on the outside. We go around to one another saying, “How are you doing?” We reply, “Great, man!” but on the inside we are saying to ourselves, “Horrible.” We say on the outside that things are tremendous, but on the inside we are saying, “I’m dying.” Jesus shed his blood on the inside as well as on the outside.. He was bruised inside to change the person on the inside, to change that nature that causes them hurt or suffering.
