Christ's Blood

Jesus’ blood redeems us from sin and the power of darkness. We are no longer under condemnation. “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” (Ephesians 1:7)

Jesus’ blood has purchased the whole church of God. “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28)

Jesus’ blood breaks down all walls. “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;” (Ephesians 2:13-14)

Jesus’ blood sanctifies us. “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)

Christ’s blood overcomes Satan. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”(Revelation 12:11)

The blood of Jesus gives us access to the Holy of Holies. We are able to come to our heavenly Father without fear! “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.” (Hebrews 10:19)
