There’s Power in the blood of Jesus

Precious Blood

As Christians, we should know and understand how powerful the blood of Jesus is. The blood of Jesus is so precious and powerful, yet many deny the power of his blood.

Any message of salvation void of the blood of JESUS is NOT the gospel. We need the blood of Jesus to cleanse our souls, to purge our conscience from dead works to serve the living GOD, and to be reconciled back into right fellowship with GOD.

What the blood of JESUS means to us:

The blood of JESUS washes our sins away and cleanses us: REV 1:5 Jesus demonstrated his love for us by setting us free from our sins through his death on the cross. He washed us from our sins in his blood, gathering us together into his kingdom and making us priests to administer GOD’s love to others.

Jesus purchased you (the church) with his bloodActs 20:28 Jesus purchased the church with his blood.

You’ve been reconciled to GOD by the blood of JESUS: 

EPH 2:13 Through the blood of Jesus, those who were once far off from GOD, are now made near to GOD.

You’ve been purchased with the blood of JESUS1st Peter:19 

We were purchased with precious blood, like A sacrificial lamb without spot or blemish. The priceless (precious) blood of Jesus Christ.

The Blood of Jesus Speaks for Us: Hebrews 12:24 Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant, sprinkled blood speaks. The blood of JESUS speaks of mercy on our behalf.

You have access to the Holy PlaceHebrews 10:19 Believers have confidence and full freedom to enter the Holy Place (the place where GOD dwells) by the blood of Jesus.

Through the blood of JESUS, your sins are forgiven: Hebrews 9:22 Everything is cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sin.

The blood of JESUS purges our conscious: Hebrews 9:14 The blood of Christ, through the Holy Spirit, willingly offered himself unblemished to God, which cleanses our conscience from dead works to serve the living GOD.

The blood of JESUS offers eternal redemption: Jesus went once and for all into the Holy Place, through his blood, having obtained and secured eternal redemption (salvation of all who believe in Him as Savior).

Justified by the BloodRomans 5:9 Through the blood of JESUS, you’ve been justified (made righteous) just as you’ve never sinned, you are now declared free from the guilt of sin by His blood.

The blood of JESUS saves you from GOD’s wrathRomans 5:9 Through JESUS (shed blood), we will be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

There’s healing in the blood of JESUSIsaiah 53:4-5, Jesus has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, and with his stripes, we are healed.

The blood of Jesus gives power/authority over the devil: Revelation 12:11

The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin: 1st John 1:7 If we walk in the light, as Jesus is in the light and have true fellowship with Jesus, the blood of JESUS God’s son cleanses us from all sin and will keep us cleansed as we walk in fellowship with him.

Through the blood of Jesus, we are made at peace with GOD: Colossians 1:20, Jesus made peace with believers through the blood of his cross.

The blood of Jesus will set you free from grief and sorrow: ISA 53:4, But He has borne our griefs, And He has carried our sorrows and pains. 

There’s healing in the blood of JESUS: ISA 53:5And by His stripes (wounds), we are healed.

When we understand the power, redemption, sanctification, cleansing, healing power in the blood of Jesus, we can operate in all GOD has called us to, JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!! Apply the blood of Jesus over your life and operate in the fullness of his power.

Yielding Your Members

Our skills, capabilities, and bodies can serve many purposes; we can either use them as A tool of Righteousness or unrighteousness. The Apostle Paul advises us in Romans to present ourselves to GOD.

Romans 6:13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

To whom have you yielded your members? To yield means “To give way too,” it is A decision of your will who you yield your members (limb or part of the body) to. Either An instrument of unrighteousness unto sin or yielded unto GOD.

Those who are Instruments of Unrighteousness: Due to the sin nature which dwells in your mortal body, you will become A slave to sin, and servants of uncleanliness. Sin has reign (power, rule, dominion) over your vessel, which makes you obedient to sin unto death. When sin rules you, by nature, you will obey its lusts and passions. In the end, this vessel will receive the fruit of death as the wages of sin is DEATH!

Those who are instruments of Righteousness: Are yielded to GOD, made alive from the dead, and you are now using your members as instruments of Righteousness unto GOD. By nature, you will become A servant of GOD unto obedience, sanctification, and Righteousness. Sin should not have dominion (reign) over you. You’re under grace! This vessel will receive the fruit of Holiness & eternal life as the gift (grace) of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Do not be deceived; examine yourselves to see if you are in the faith. 2nd Cor 13:5

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

Sin is not what you do it is what you are: To learn more about having A nature change to become an instrument of righteousness, check out the organic gospel book The Organic Gospel. http://theorganicgospel.net/

The Road To Reprobation

The Apostle Paul wrote Romans to the Christians in Rome. The Roman church was mostly Jewish but contained A significant number of Gentiles. Paul gave A practical roadmap as to where sin can lead us and how our mind can become degenerate through sin. The wages of sin are death, and this clear outline shows the pathway to A depraved mind.

Romans 1:18-32 Gods anger at sin:

The Wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and Unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth. The truth about GOD is evident within these individuals, for GOD made it manifest in them. However, they decide to prevent the development of others due to their Unrighteousness. (I call this group the mutilators, they cut off the developmental growth of the babes in Christ, usually making disciples after themselves instead of JESUS they seek greedy gain).

Philippians 3:2 Beware (Take Heed) of dogs, beware of evil (Worthless) workers, beware of the concision (cutting down/ off/mutilation).

God is long-suffering not willing for any of us to suffer; he wants all to come to the knowledge of JESUS Christ. He draws us in, but if we continue in our sin, GOD will eventually give us over to A depraved mind. A reprobate is A morally depraved, corrupt, wicked person. When your mind is reprobate, you can become rejected by GOD and beyond the hope of salvation. 

Let’s Looks At the phases below:

Darkened (Veiled) Heart 

  • Know there is A GOD  
  • Decide not to Honor nor Glorify GOD
  • Unthankful Towards God 
  • Vain (Empty) thoughts/imaginations towards GOD.

The group above is the start toward A reprobate mind, they know or have heard there is A God BUT decide NOT to Honor him as GOD. In result, they will become unthankful towards him and will have vain/ empty thoughts towards GOD. 

This group usually refuse to receive the truth of the Gospel because it requires them to change and Glorify the GOD of the bible. When presented with the truth it is now hidden from them, because they are in love with their sin. As a result, Satan has blinded their mind from the truth.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 But even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the God of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

Given Up to “Uncleanness” (Physical & Moral Defilement)

  • Greek minds: Walk in the wisdom of this world as opposed to the Wisdom of GOD they become fools.
  • Idolaters: Create A god in the image of man or beast (statues, money, careers, celebrities, family, sex, children, horoscopes, etc.) 
  • Due to the fact they did not honor GOD and became idolaters, they are now given over to the lusts of their own hearts. This always leads to Sexual impurity (uncleanliness) i.e., Fornication, masturbation, pornography, homosexuality, etc.
  • Exchanges the truth of GOD for A lie (create A god in their image after the lusts of their own hearts)
  • Worship and serve the creature (things created) rather than GOD, our creator.

Due to the wisdom of this world, several become foolish, which causes them to change the truth of GOD into A LIE. If we refuse to receive the truth of GOD, we will automatically receive A lie. The uncleanness and lusts of the hearts will cause many to dishonor their bodies between themselves. FOR THIS CAUSE, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO Vile Affections.

Given Up to Vile (Abominable) affections 

  • Women exchanged the natural function (of their bodies) for the unnatural and things contrary to nature. (Lesbianism, feminism, abominable acts, etc.)
  • The men turn away from the natural function of the woman and burn in their lust for one another.
  • Receiving in their bodies the penalty of their error (wrongdoing)
  • Will not acknowledge GOD or consider him worth knowing as their creator.

Since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or retain him in their knowledge, God gave them over to A reprobate (depraved) mind.

Given over to reprobate (degenerate) mind

They were filled (permeated, saturated) with every kind of:

  • Unrighteousness
  • Fornication
  • Wickedness
  • Covetousness
  • Maliciousness
  • Full of envy
  • Murder
  • Debate
  • Deceit
  • Malignity
  • Whisperers (gossipers)
  • Back biters
  • Haters of GOD
  • Despiteful
  • Proud
  • Boasters
  • Inventors of all evil things
  • Disobedient to parents
  • Without understanding
  • Covenant-breakers
  • Without natural affection
  • Implacable
  • Unmerciful

Those who practice these things know the righteous judgment of God and are deserving of death. Not only those who do these things, but, also those who approve and tolerate others who practice them. 

As we see the wages of sin is death, we cannot tolerate sin nor keep silent when presented with the truth. God is A merciful, long-suffering GOD, but he will NOT tolerate sin in his kingdom. Intercession is needed for those who are headed down the road of reprobation. At this time, sin may be pleasurable for a season, but in the end, it only results in death!

God Bless,

Spiritual Gateways of the Body

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.

What is A Gate?

A gate is A place of authority, A place of security, gates control exit, and entry into An area. The door in your home is A gateway; the fence in your backyard is A gate. You have the authority to open or close the doors and gates in your home. Other words for gates: (borders, boundaries, portal, and door).

In ancient times, gates were significant because the strength of the gate determined the safety of a city. If the enemy stormed the gate and succeeded, the horses and chariots of war would enter into it. So, when the gate came down, the city was conquered.

Although the gates mentioned above are concerning physical gates, we must know there are spiritual gates as well. Our enemies stand at the gates awaiting entry. There are several demonic gateways the devil use to enter in and defile our soul. In ancient times, whoever controlled the gates had dominion and power in their grasp.

1st Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because of your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Essential Facts About spiritual gates:

  • Our enemies will plot and wait at our gates: Judges 16:2 And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson has come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him
  • Sin crouches at our door/ gates it desires to overpower us: Genesis 4:7 If you do well [believing Me and doing what is acceptable and pleasing to Me], will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well [but ignore My instruction], sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you [to overpower you], but you must master it.”
  • There are gatekeepers at gates: Joshua 20:4 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.
  • There can be A breach in our gates: Ezekiel 26:10
  • Our gates/walls can be broken down: Proverbs 25:28 Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected] Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble].

Before I list the major gateways, we must know our battle is internal. Anytime we’ve opened the door to sin we’ve given our enemies A legal right into our lives (Just A Jesus stands at the door and knock in Rev 3:20) our enemy knocks at the door, and many of us have answered. When you are born again, you must patiently possess your soul.

Major gates the enemy uses to access our lives (among many):

  • Eye Gate: This is important as your eye (if healthy) gives light to your entire body. Your eyes are the lamp of your body. Through this gateway, once it is defiled, a strong spirit of lust, pornography, etc. can enter in. Jesus also warned us if our eyes cause us to sin, it is better to gouge the eye out rather than enter into Hell with two eyes.  Job also made A covenant with his eyes to not lust after women. Our eyes are like the lens of A camera; it takes A picture and transfers it to our spirit. In Psalm 101, David states, “I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.” In Jesus warning to the Laodicean church, he advised them to anoint their eyes with salve so they can see. We must be careful what we watch on TV, Phone, etc. all of these are devices the enemy can use to defile our eye gate. Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single; thy whole body shall be full of light.
  • Ear Gate: The Bible says, “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” The opposite is additionally true if we listen to the lies of satan, i.e. (worldly music, his false ministers, his accusations, etc.) Listening to the wrong thing will affect our hearing gateway. When our hearing gateway is defiled, it will make it hard for us to hear the truth of God’s word. Verbal Abuse and any negative speaking can cause A blockage to this gate and cause spirits or rejection and death to enter.
  • Mouth Gate: Our words hold power; we are instructed to bridle our tongue. Though it is A little member, it can cause significant damage. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21 Beware of the idle words you speak over yourself and others, we will be judged for every idle word we speak. We must also remember not to use our tongues to speak curses one minute and blessings the next Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?
  • Sex Gate: The sex gate is the most successful gate used by Satan. There is practically nothing the enemy cannot do to someone who is sexually perverse. Once you engage in sex outside marriage, or any illicit sexual sin, i.e. (oral, anal, sodomy, masturbation, etc.) you’ve allowed an open the door to the enemy. The command in GOD’s word is to “flee fornication every other sin A person commit is outside the body but the person who commits fornication, sins against his own body.” (1st Corinthians 6:18) Fornication is not only committed by those who are unmarried, but those who are married as well, (Adultery, pornography, uncleanliness) are all considered fornication as well. We must flee sexual sin, and we are told (if married) we should not defile our marriage bed, (this means our marriage bed can be defiled. If you’re not married, you’re to flee (run from) fornication as well. We must close the door to this perverse sex gate.

How to overcome:

1.    If you are not A Christian, you have to surrender your life to JESUS.

2.    Repent of your sin (this is key to starting your born-again process, you must repent of your sin). 

3.    Conquer the giants that are within your gates (by the power of the Holy Spirit)

4.    Renew your mind daily by reading God’s word, Know and meditate on God’s word (Through knowledge the righteous are delivered Prov 11:9)

5.    Restore the spiritual gates in your life (Read Nehemiah)

6.    Stay in prayer and couple it with fasting to pull down the strongholds in the gateways.

The gates named above are gates our enemies use through our five carnal senses (touch, taste, smell, Seeing, and Hearing). There are also gates we have access to as well:

  • Jesus is the door/gate to the father: John 10:9 I am the door(gate): by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
  • The Narrow and Wide Gates (Chose Wisely) Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it
  • We can possess the gates of our enemies: Gen 22:7
  • Pray and ask GOD to guard our gates to stop anything unclean from entering in: 2Chronicles 23:19 Jehoiada stationed the gatekeepers [at the gates] of the house of the Lord, so that no one would enter who was in any way unclean (Jehoiada means “Knowledge of the Lord”).
  • Gates of Thanksgiving & Praise: Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
  • Gates of Righteousness: Psalm 118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:

In closing, we must know, meditate upon, and understand Gods word. We are more than conquers in Christ Jesus. Be courageous, and destroy the strongholds in your life, through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can overcome sin.

Most importantly Guard your heart with all diligence; for out of it flows the issues of life (Prov 4:23)

God Bless,

Prayer Point – Spirit of This World

As I read scripture, I usually will gather prayer points and write them down. Today I was meditating on this scripture and decided to write the below prayer and share. I pray it is A blessing to all who reads it.

Father in Jesus name, I pray for everyone bound by the world, Lord I pray you will deliver them from being slaves to sin and from the spirit of this world.
Break the bands of the yoke from upon their lives Lord and cause them to go up right before you. For it is the anointing that destroys the yokes, pour out your anointing oil upon the readers of this prayer. Father, we pray this in Jesus name for your glory and honor AMEN!

Leviticus 26:13
‘I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves; I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright.’

Think about the joy of a slave set free. God took the children of Israel out of bitter slavery and gave them freedom and dignity. We too can be set free when we accept Christ’s payment that redeems us from sins slavery. We no longer need to be tormented with shame and guilt over our past sins; we can walk with dignity because God has forgiven us and forgotten our sins. But, just as the Israelite’s were in danger of returning to A slave mentality (returning to EGYPT / WORLD), we need to beware of the temptation to return to our former sinful patterns. Don’t be the dog returning to its vomit forsake the sin, repent and allow the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse you.

Spiritual & Physical House Cleaning

It’s springtime, and many are planning to clean their homes, offices, and personal spaces. De-cluttering & organization is at the top of their lists. Although cleaning, organizing, de-cluttering, is A good thing very few people give A second thought about cleaning their spiritual house.

Our bodies are considered A temple, and we should treat it as such. We must guard what we allow in because the devil plan is to steal, kill, defile and ultimately destroy us.

John 10:10 NKJV
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.

Sin opens the door for demonic spirits to enter our lives. Its time we close every doorway we’ve opened to the enemy. In Matthew 12:43-45 and Luke11:24-26 scripture tells us that when an evil “unclean spirit” is gone out of our bodies [if it should try and come back] it should never find the house empty, swept, and garnished. The above scripture is referring to our (body) and also our home.

Empty, Swept and garnished refers to our spiritual lives we must continually remain in Gods presence. Prayer, Reading Gods Word, Fasting, Praise & Worship are all necessary for our spiritual growth. We must keep our mind on the Lord.

We also can have spiritual freedom by removing objects from our home that brings curses & sin into our lives. There are unclean cursed objects in homes that we need to rid out of our lives and house. These cursed objects can open A doorway for evil spirits to enter into our home. We must be vigilant and use discernment with the items we allow into our home.

As mentioned above, we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us in all things. He is our teacher, comforter & the Spirit of Truth he will give us wisdom in all things.

Deuteronomy 7:26: Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing(banned, a doomed object, dedicated thing) like it: but thou shall utterly detest it(loathe it), and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing

As we can see from the scripture above, God considers the accursed objects an abomination. A cursed object is something that is banned and dedicated to a false god. We can now understand why we are commanded to destroy these items and abhor them quickly. God wants to see his people set free, and the devil wants to keep us bound. Be vigilant sisters & brothers.

Pray over everything you purchase for your home, anoint all items with oil. I also recommend anointing the food you are buying from your local market place. Satan is crafty he is always on the prowl seeking whom he may devour. Wisdom, discernment and living A Holy separated life is essential. Please CLOSE THE DOOR TO SIN, and the EVIL OBJECTS it doesn’t matter how unique the item is if the Holy Spirit shows you an accursed object in your home we must obey and utterly destroy it.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8)

I’ve provided A link with A list of accursed objects that we may have ignorantly allowed into our home. I will name a few below but, for a more detailed list, please click the URL below. As always, there is a prayer to follow.

  • Cursed Objects List (This includes items I have seen personally and owned)
  • Crystal Ball
  • African Masks, statues and figurines

The Glorification of the Sons of God

God is calling his children to spiritual maturity; his ultimate goal is “Christ in us” this is his hope of glory. In the end times, GOD will pour his Spirit upon the end time church. We must prepare ourselves now for when the end comes.

Those who are the Sons of God will:

  1. Be Led by the Holy Spirit
  2. Delivered from spirits of bondage & fear (**Note these are actual spirits we need deliverance from**)
  3. Receive the Spirit of Adoption
  4. The Spirit of God will bear witness with our human spirit that we are children of GOD. If Children, we will then be heirs with God & Jesus
  5. Will suffer with Jesus
  6. Be glorified with Jesus
  7. Gods glory will be revealed in the Sons of God

Romans 8:12-17

‘For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.’

There is a remnant (as with every generation) that will especially walk with GOD. These individuals will earnestly seek him and worship the Father in Spirit and Truth! God is calling us to seek him with our whole heart. If we seek him, he will be found even in these last days, “But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29

All of creation was affected by the fall of man according to (Romans 8: 19-23) when we come into the maturity of being Sons of GOD through full union with Jesus Christ and his body then the entire creation will be set free from the effects of the fall. This transition is not easy for Gods children & creation; hence it is compared to “travailing in pain together.”

The way we come into spiritual maturity is through constant communion with Jesus Christ & The Holy Spirit. Most importantly, it is about us resting in Gods promise, and you’re not called to do many works or force yourself to change. Instead, you can simply rest in his promise by meditating on the word of GOD night & day, having constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit and being led into all truth by the Holy Spirit. God will perfect that which concerns you (Psalm 138:8) Remember For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are Sons of God, (Romans 8:14). Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would lead us into all truth as Jesus directs Him. The Holy Spirit will glorify Christ in us, (John 16:12-15).

Another key to being led by the Holy Spirit is obedience; we have to obey his voice as he directs us into all truth and righteousness. Obedience is key to walking in GODS truth & light. “And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him” Hebrews 5:19. There is so much more to write about this subject, but I urge you to search the scriptures & please seek the Lord while he may be found. It’s time to come into the fullness of maturity to see the Glorification of the Sons of GOD!
God Bless~

Scripture Reading:
EZK 37: 2-6
Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed, they were very dry. 3And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”
4Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”

For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, (Hebrews 2:10-11 NASB)

The creation waits eagerly for the Sons of God to be revealed; for the creation was made subject to frustration—not willingly, but because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope that it too would be set free from its bondage to decay and would enjoy the freedom accompanying the glory that God’s children will have. We know that until now, the whole creation has been groaning as with the pains of childbirth; and not only it, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue waiting eagerly to be made sons—that is, to have our whole bodies redeemed and set free. (Romans 8:19-23 CJB)
