Summary: Oh the Blood

There’s still power in the Blood

By Stanley Baker

Did you know that a scarlet thread winds its way throughout the entire Bible?

Skeptics and scoffers may fire their arrows at the validity and historicity of Scriptures,

but believers throughout the centuries have seen this line of crimson weaving through every book of God’s holy Word.

It is the story of redemption of mankind at the price of the blood of Jesus Christ.”

The key verse for understanding this scarlet thread is

Hebrews 9:22.

Where it says, “Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”

That’s the driving principle that runs throughout the entire Bible.

I don’t understand WHY a blood sacrifice leads to forgiveness;

I just know the Bible says it and I believe it.

I don’t understand how a brown cow eats green grass and gives white milk.

But I’m not going to refuse a cold glass of milk until I understand the process!

I’m not going to refuse the precious blood of Christ either

Revelation 12:10-11

Our success and victory in this life depends on a vital living revelation of the power of the blood of Jesus in your life.

YOU WILL NEVER ENJOY YOUR FULL BENEFITS AS A CHRISTIAN UNTIL YOU GIVE THE BLOOD OF JESUS IT’S RIGHTFUL PLACE IN YOUR LIFE.

(I Peter 1:18 KJV)

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ. as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Leviticus 17:11

for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

(Hebrews 9:22 KJV)

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Now let’s look at what I call the (Nine Wonders of the Blood).

(1)Salvation:

(Ephesians 1:7 KJV)

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

(2)Peace made:

(Colossians l:20 KJV)

And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven,-

(3)Access into the presence of God:

(Hebrews 10: 19 KJV)

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

(4)Deliverance:

(Zechariah 9: 11 KJV)

As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.

(5)Clear conscience:

(Hebrews 9: 14 KJV)

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

(6)Present cleansing:

(I John 1:7 KJV)

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

(7)Protection:

(Exodus 12: 13 KJV)

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood. I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

(8)There’s Healing in the blood:

Psalms 129:2-3

Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.

Isaiah 53:4-5

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1Peter 2:24

Who his own self bares our sins in his own body on the tree that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

(9)The source of the Christian life:

(John 6:56 KJV)

He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

It may sound old fashioned, but I’m one of those who believe that there is still power in the Blood of Jesus Christ.

The blood of Jesus will never need to be replaced nor recharged in our lives.

Just like that scarlet thread in the Bible,

that runs from Genesis to the Cross.

Satan tried to cut it off at the cross,

but the scarlet thread continued into a cold dark tomb.

There’s this great hymn that sings

Up from the grave He arose with a might triumph o’er His foes.
