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)

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!

YOUR PLACE BY THE FATHER

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (Psalm 91:1-2)

Through the power of the death, burial, and resurrection, 

God put us in Christ.

Mark Hankins

The only limit to the goodness of God is our capacity to receive. God told Moses, “I will show you my glory; there is a place by me.  When believers take their place in Christ they are properly positioned to see the glory of God.

Psalm 91 is a great insurance policy! The company will never go broke. We are to live in that secret place.

Find your place by the Father. Live in that place. Don’t let Hollywood tell you who you are, where your place is, and how to dress, look, or act. Don’t let people shape you.

Get in the presence of God and let Him shape you. God will put you in the rock!  We now know that rock is Jesus Christ. That is the hiding place, the viewing place, and the glory place. Through the power of the death, burial, and resurrection, God put us in Christ — in the rock!

Confession: There is a place by the Father God for me! By faith in the precious blood of Jesus, I am taking my place by the Father and receiving His goodness!

GLORY! GOD IS ALL GOOD

For how great is his goodness. (Zechariah 9:17)

The length, depth, breadth, and height of God’s goodness overwhelmed Moses. He had an experience with the Glory of God!

Mark Hankins

Can you imagine what it would be like to have God’s entire goodness pass before you? That is exactly what happened to Moses — God revealed His goodness to him. The length, depth, breadth, and height of God’s goodness overwhelmed Moses; he had an experience with the glory of God. The glory of God so changed Moses’ whole countenance that his face radiated. His face was shining! The glory of God touches and affects every aspect of your life.

I like David Baron’s commentary on Zechariah 9:17: “Goodness is that attribute of God whereby He loveth to communicate to all who can or will receive it, ALL GOOD yea Himself, who is the fullness and universality of good, creator of all good, not in one way, not in one kind of goodness only, but absolutely, without beginning, with- out limit, without measure. This good, His goodness bestoweth on all and each, according to the capacity of each to receive it; nor is there any limit to His giving, save His creatures capacity of receiving.

Confession: The glory of God is the goodness of God. The goodness of God is changing my life! God is a good God!
