Overcoming any oppression can be very difficult, and that is why Jesus talks about overcoming in the NT, He knows all about what it is to overcome, and is very proud of any believer who overcomes and who are will to give their word of testimony.
What does overcoming by the blood mean ???
First it means that the blood represents the finished work of Jesus, the cleansing of all of our sins, and also very important is the cleansing of our conscious of all past sins.
It is very difficult to overcome any oppression if we have a guilty conscious where we remember our sins and we have feelings of Guilt and Shame and condemnation.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish unto God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God. Heb: 9:14
A conscience fully cleansed with the blood of Christ, fully conscious of its cleansing power, has the sense of guilt and demerit removed to an infinite distance.
It can look up to God without the shadow of a cloud. The light of God’s face, to which the blood gave our Surety access, shines clear on the conscience, and through it on the heart.
And now, when that blood, from out of the heavenly sanctuary, is sprinkled on the conscience by the heavenly High Priest—how much more— with what an infinitely effectual cleansing, must not our conscience be cleansed Heb 10:22
To honor our Father and the sacrifice of His Son, we must accept this cleansing of our conscious as a reality and walk in this reality on a daily basis. We can not honor God by us remembering our sins when God has specifically said “He will remember our sins no more” Heb 8:12
When the conscience is cleansed or perfected, the heart is cleansed and perfected too.
And so it is in the heart that the power the blood had in heaven is communicated here on earth. The blood that brought Christ into God’s presence, brings us, and our whole inner being, there too.
Oh, let us realize this is real truth…
The three great promises of the blood of the Lamb
1. Pardon and peace in God’s forgetting sin.
2. Purity and power in having the law of life in our heart.
3. The presence of God set open to us.
Are not only secured to us by the blood, but the blood has its part too in communicating them. Read Hebrews Chapter 8.
In the power of the Holy Spirit the blood effects a mighty, divine cleansing, full of heavenly life and energy.
The blood that cleanses my conscience is the blood that gave Christ access into the holiest. If I truly desire, if I know and honor and trust the blood, it will give me access too.
How completely every vestige of an evil conscience can be taken away and kept away by the redeeming power of this precious blood.
What a mystery ! what blessedness ! a heart sprinkled with the blood of the Son of God ! To walk before God day by day with the blood of His Son upon us ! To know that the Lamb of God sees us washed in His own blood ! Oh, we need, let us ask, the Eternal Spirit to make all this clear to us.
The Spirit that was in Christ, when He shed the blood, makes us partakers of its power.
His victory over sin, His perfect obedience, His access to the Father,—the soul that fully knows the cleansing of the blood in its power will know these blessings too.
How much more shall the blood of Christ cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God…..Hebrews 9:14
What a tender, careful, holy fear comes upon a soul that lives in the full and living consciousness of the blessed reality the of the Blood of the Lamb.
It has the ability to produce what is is designed to do —Create a clear and clean conscious before our Father, and this is why we can overcome though the blood of the Lamb……
Jesus’ blood protects us from Satan, demons, the demonic, and evil. Jesus’ blood provides the only way for God’s judgment to pass over our lives.
The shedding of the blood. Exodus 12:6
The applying of the blood. Exodus 12:7
The effectiveness of the blood. Ex 12:23
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences…..Heb 9:14
Holy Spirit, Thank you for applying the blood of Jesus to every area of my life
The Blood of Jesus works against all attack of the enemy in body, soul and spirit to defeat attacks that are coming against us from our enemies (demons).
I continue to place my body, my soul, my spirit, under and covered by the blood of the Lamb, giving me protection from all evil fiery darts of the enemy
Thank you Father, I thank you for this gift, In the name of Jesus
Mar 11:24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. NLT
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. KJV Version same verse.
Mark 11:23 but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Rom 10:9 Confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved (greek word Sozo – Made Whole).
Believe in the Heart and speak with the mouth, Believing is an Act of the Will, we can Choose to Believe, and what we believe becomes the word of our testimony, our testimony should always agreed with what Jesus has spoken, Jesus is the Word, all of scripture
So we speak what Jesus has done for us, even if we still have symptoms….
Faith is trusting and acting on the Word of God, and acting on it tells us if we are in faith, if we act we are in faith, if we do not act we are not in faith, acting on the word is continuing to speak and depend on the words of Jesus, it is that simple, when we act, we believe.
Faith without corresponding action is dead James 2:17
We believe in the Heart not in the mind or in our reason, a Christian’s heart is a part of our spirit that has been regenerated – Divine Nature 2 Pet 1-4 – Supernatural knowledge of the Word.
We believe in the heart, therefore we speak with our mouths, thereby, renewing our minds, fundamental principle of the teachings of Jesus.
This is why we overcome through the blood and our testimony, they are connected, every chance we get we tell people what Jesus has done for us, this helps us to keep overcoming and the Holy Spirit it says in Ephesians 1:13 after we believe, the Holy Spirit seals what we have believed.
So we speak what Jesus has done for us, it is finished, even if we still have symptoms….
