THE BLOOD’S SUPERNATURAL ABILITIES

THE BLOOD’S SUPERNATURAL ABILITIES

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:18-19

Reflection.

The blood of Jesus Christ has supernatural power. Through the blood of Jesus, major spiritual changes take place in your life. None of these changes are natural. Every change that comes about in your life through the blood of Jesus is supernatural. Most people are aware of the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. Many people speak of the supernatural power of angels. Some people know about the supernatural power of Jehovah. But few people know about the supernatural power of the blood of Jesus. Indeed, there is great supernatural power in the blood of our Saviour.

It is important to understand different ways by which the blood of Jesus supernatural power operates. I would be sharing six different ways the blood’s supernatural abilities change our lives.

1.The blood of Jesus has supernatural power that never expires.

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not REDEEMED with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vein conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:18-19

It is important to understand that the blood of bulls and goats could never have the power to save you from your sins. Only the blood of the sinless Lamb of God had the power to wash away sins.

This is why we sing about the blood of Jesus. This is why we sing, “There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb.”

This is why we also sing that the blood will never lose its power. The blood of Jesus will last forever. It is eternal blood, and it will always have the power to wash away sins.

2. The blood has the supernatural power to save you from your well-deserved punishment.

We all deserve to be punished for our sins. There is none amongst us that is innocent. No one can claim that he does not deserve to go to hell. So, what can deliver us from the punishment we deserve? Only the blood of Jesus can miraculously save us from our well-deserved punishment.

3.The blood of Jesus has the supernatural power to prevent death.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls-Leviticus 17:11

The Blood of Jesus has within it a supernatural ability to prevent death. The blood of Jesus has within it a supernatural ability to prevent you from going to hell. The life is in the blood and therefore the absence of life-giving blood causes death.

4.The blood of Jesus has supernatural power to bring you back from the dead.

Now the God of peace, that BROUGHT AGAIN FROM THE DEAD our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, THROUGH THE BLOOD of the everlasting covenant-Hebrews 13:20

The scripture teaches us that the blood of Jesus is the power that raised Jesus from the dead. The blood of Jesus has the power to raise the dead. It is the only power that could raise Jesus Christ out of the grave. It is by this same power of the blood that you will be raised from the dead. You will die, but you will not remain dead because of the power of the blood of Jesus.

5.The blood of Jesus has the supernatural ability to open the gates of heaven-Revelation 7:9-10, 13-14

Indeed, one of the wonders of heaven is about how people like us could get into a place like heaven? How did we escape the prison we deserved to go to? How did we get out of the company of fellow murderers and fellow fornicators?

How did we weave our way out of the sentence of death against us? How did we avoid the verdict of hell?

Who do we know who made a way for us to come to heaven? Which important person chipped in a word on our behalf? What are people like us doing in heaven?

Where are our dirty clothes and filthy rags? How come we are dressed in white? Do we not belong to the company of thieves, murderers, and evil doers?

How come we are singing hymns? How did people who once rejected God come to heaven? Are they there on a visit? Are they going to be here forever?

But one of the elders has the answer to all these questions. One of the elders explains that the multitudes have been able to come to heaven by washing their robes in the blood of the lamb.

6.The blood of Jesus has the supernatural power to overcome the devil

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

The blood of Jesus has power. Through the blood of Jesus, you will gain superiority over the devil, and you will defeat him! Through the blood of Jesus, you will win all the battles of life and ministry. Through the blood of Jesus, you will deal with all the demonic problems of this world. It is time to overpower and overwhelm the devil through the powerful, precious, and everlasting blood of Jesus.

We live in a world dominated by an evil spirit of pride, rebellion, and wickedness. This evil spirit is assisted by thousands of demons with the same evil character. All the struggles of our lives are related to the presence of evil spirits in the atmosphere. The atmosphere in different parts of the country and different parts of the world are determined by these evil spirits.

The scripture has good news for us. We can overcome the devil and his cohorts. We have been told exactly how we will overcome the devil – through the blood of Jesus.

Prayer.

Thank you, Lord, for empowering us to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony. May we continue to testify daily of your goodness, amen.
