THE BLOOD OF JESUS | The Gospel of Grace Ministries
The scriptures say that unless we, “drink His Blood,” we have no life in us but when we partake of what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross, we can then have eternal life.
Jesus said to his disciples; unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you but whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. John 6:53
Christians are purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ. It is the shed blood of the lamb that was poured out as an offering, once for all, for God’s elect. The blood of Jesus Christ paid the penalty for sin and delivered the Christian from the ownership of the devil.
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us].Hebrews 9:12
Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.Acts 20:28
Christians are saved from God’s wrath by having faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. This is the only thing that will save you. Faith in the name of Jesus is not enough. You must have faith in the blood of Jesus to save you and keep you saved. Otherwise your faith in Jesus is in vain.
As you can see from this scripture, faith in the blood of Jesus, declares us righteous before God and remitted of sin. So why are you relying on your works to keep you saved? Jesus is the justifier. He justifies by faith in his blood.
This scriptures ask quite plainly. By what law? of works? NO!! But by THE LAW OF FAITH.
This is the only law that will save you! Not a law of works but a spiritual law like the law of gravity. THE LAW OF FAITH.
So, before you start misquoting the book of James look closely at this scripture.Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Romans 3: 24-28
Works accompany the Christian if they are really saved because when one is born again they are given a new nature, God’s nature. BUT works do not justify in and of themselves. What justifies is FAITH IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS ALONE.
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through FAITH IN HIS BLOOD, todeclare 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. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Romans 3: 24-28
The blood of Jesus Christ gives the Christian forgiveness of sins. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:28
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7
To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood. Revelation 1:5
In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins.Colossians 1:14
The blood of Jesus also purchased Christians from the old man and the power of sin. If you still love your sin then I would question whether you have had a born again experience. Scriptures tell us that Jesus defeated the power of sin and so sin has no more dominion over you who are in the Spirit and not the old carnal nature.
Those in Christ have put on Christ. They have his character because they have the Holy Spirit living in them. If one does not have the Spirit, then they do not belong to God according to the Bible.
knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct 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
To be redeemed by the blood of Jesus means to be purchased from slavery or the ownership of another. The blood of Jesus Christ is the purchase price that has translated (moved from one place to another) us from darkness of unbelief, slaves of sin and children of the wicked one.
It is not enough to have faith in Jesus .This does not save! You must have faith in the blood of Jesus to remit sins , to be saved. Many will be in hell who thought that they were Christians because they trusted in there own power and ability to save them and keep them saved.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13,14
The blood of Jesus gives Christian access to the throne of God to pray for our needs and the needs of others. You cannot enter God’s presence unless you have faith in the blood of Jesus to bring you there. God does not hear prayers unless the blood of Jesus covers the door posts of your heart.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus. Hebrews 10:19-22
The Christian’s bodies were bought for God by Jesus Christ and he now owns them and has filled them with His Holy Spirit. God now dwells in his people who are now his temples. Our temples are consecrated for his glory and set apart for service to him. This is what true holiness means. Run like the dickens from Christian cults who preach a holiness based on behavior! Holiness means to be set apart by God.Godliness means God like behavior, and godliness is Holy Spirit initiated, demonstrated and performed. It is not human behavior.
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Christians are now walking in God’s light, the same light that God commanded to shine in our hearts to bring us the new birth. This means that the blood of Jesus continually cleanses us from all sin. No one is perfect but God and when we sin and confess our sin then God can bring us to repentance and restoration.
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. 1 John 1:7
Christian’s are made righteous or justified (just as if you never sinned) by the blood of Jesus Christ. There is no human behavior that will save or keep one saved.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Romans 5:9
God’s elect are no longer under wrath or condemnation like the world but rather the blood of Jesus Christ makes Christians righteous before God imparting holiness and a continual sanctification of his holiness.
Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. Hebrews10:29, 13:12
Now God’s elect have a clean conscience before God. Why? Because God has removed all sin from our hearts. This might sound like a new gospel to some who have never heard the true gospel of Jesus Christ, but this is the gospel of the Bible and the historic reformation Christians.
If you believe in your human works and your faith to save you, then you are not a protestant but a catholic, this is their doctrine. (faith plus works to save) Many denominations have gone back to Rome. Be assured that Rome is a false church and if you read the book of Revelations you will find out the end of that apostate system.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
God’s elect have been given full assurance of faith, because they are assured of salvation and this is because of the blood of Jesus! True born again Christians have full assurance of their salvation because their hearts have been made clean by the blood of Jesus and his eternal word. ( Jesus, the word made flesh)
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:19-23
The blood of Jesus gives the Christian peace with God. The person who is working for their salvation is always striving and has no rest. They will strive themselves straight to hell because they have no faith in the blood of Jesus to save them and keep them saved.
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation Ephesians 2:13
The blood of Jesus gives the Christian victory over the devil and his angels.Satan cannot defeat the blood bought saints whether in life or death for they arepurchased by God through the blood of the lamb. What does scriptures say over comes the world? OUR FAITH!! NOT BEHAVIOR BUT OUR FAITH IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Revelation 5:9-10
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. I John 5:4
The blood of Jesus makes all of God’s elect one in the Holy Spirit. This is the true body of Christ.
And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood, Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth .
