Living By Faith

HONOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS

Through the blood of his cross…you are reconciled to God by Him…In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight. (Colossians 1:20-22)

 

“We, as believers, are accepted into the presence of God, having perfect fellowship with the Father God because of what Christ has done for us.” – Mark Hankins

 

We honor the blood of Jesus as we lift our voice in faith declaring what it has accomplished and what it is accomplishing. The spoken Word of God is the voice of the Blood Covenant. Every Word has blood in it. The blood must be applied by faith.

According to your faith so be it unto you. There is no such thing as passive faith.  Faith acts like the Bible is true. Live by faith and continually apply the blood.  There is power in the blood.

God sees us in Christ. We have full assurance of faith to go right into the very presence of God because we have been washed in the blood of Jesus. We are in Christ by faith in the blood of Jesus. Let us honor the blood of Jesus and confess daily who we are and what we have in Christ Jesus.

 

Confession: I have faith in the blood of Jesus. In Christ I have redemption through His blood! (Colossians 1:14)

INGREDIENTS IN THE BLOOD

By the blood (that sealed, ratified) the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament). Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will. (Hebrews 13:20-21)

 

“You will be launched into a new level of victory and blessing as you apply the blood.’ – Mark Hankins

 

When we look at the New Testament, we see a full printout of the ingredients that are in the blood of Jesus. We can see what God sees in the blood. In order to purchase a million dollar life insurance policy, a sample of your blood would be required before you would be approved for the policy. They would send the blood to the lab to study it. Under powerful microscopes they would see what ingredients are in your blood. A few days later you would receive a full-page printout with a detailed description of what is in your blood.

A thorough investigation of the blood of Jesus reveals every necessary ingredient for full salvation. There is righteousness, forgiveness, redemption, sanctification, healing, victory, blessing, boldness, prosperity, and power in the blood of Jesus!

 

Confession: Through the blood of Jesus, I am strengthened and equipped with everything good that I may carry out His will!

APPLY THE BLOOD

The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)

 

“Faith is largely dependent on knowledge. If knowledge of what the blood can accomplish is not accurate, then faith expects little, and the more powerful effects of the blood are limited.” – Andrew Murray

 

The blood in your body circulates from head to toe every twenty-three seconds.  The blood carries life itself. It carries the nutrients in that you need to live and it carries the garbage out.

As we study the Word of God, our faith grows. When we see clearly what Jesus has done for us through His blood, we begin our ascent into the realm of God.  The blood of Jesus carries everything He has done for us. The blood of Jesus circulates and takes care of life and health for us. The blood of Jesus has many different ingredients and applications that are applied by faith. God is a faith

God and faith is what pleases Him. Faith opens the door to the supernatural.

Faith is built on accurate knowledge, (Romans 10:17) and there is no such thing as silent faith. Faith has a voice. (Mark 11:23)

 

Confession: I have faith in the blood of Jesus. I apply the blood of Jesus to my life today. Thank you Lord for the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses me from all sin!

FAITH IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS

Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus…by the law of faith. (Romans 3:25-27)

 

“Faith in His blood is the power and the vehicle that launches the believer into the very presence of God.” – Mark Hankins

 

What a wonderful sight it is to see a space shuttle launch. You can see it rise slowly, then rocket into another world. The power, the sound, and the sight are fascinating. The giant fuel cells that propel it are necessary to get it out of this atmosphere into outer space. The shuttle leaves the law of gravity behind and enters a world of weightlessness. I like to compare that to faith in the blood of Jesus.

Faith in His blood launches the believer into another realm where the new law of faith rules. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus breaks the law of sin and death. The weight of sin that once held you down is broken and you are free.  Think of the possibilities and the power in the blood of Jesus!

 

Confession:  I am no longer bound by the law of sin and death! I am free through faith in His blood and the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus!

THE SMELL OF TRIUMPH

The blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)

 

“God wants you to apply the blood of Jesus to your life in every situation and smell like the triumph of Christ.” – Mark Hankins

 

Several years ago on one of our family vacations, I decided to drive through a wild animal park in Oklahoma. We purchased some small buckets of feed to give to the various animals as we drove through. A llama came strolling up and I began to feed him out of my bucket. All of a sudden, he forced his whole head in the window and ate out of my bucket with his whole head in my lap. The llama pulled his head out of the bucket and sneezed in my van! Llama spit and snot and slimy stuff went all across the front dash and on our clothes!

Sin and Satan are the same way. When the devil gets his head in your life, he will not leave until he has sneezed on you and made a mess. Jesus shed His blood, died, and rose from the dead to undo all that the devil has done. God not only wants to get the devil’s head out and clean up the mess, but He also wants you to be free from the smell of the past. God does not want you to smell like sin, failure, guilt, and shame.

 

Confession: The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. Thank God for the Blood of Jesus!
