A Better Word pt 4


The Power of the Blood


Memorise the 5 confessions of the Blood of Jesus:

  1. By the blood of Jesus I am redeemed from all the power of the enemy.
  2. By the blood of Jesus I am forgiven from all my sins.
  3. By the blood of Jesus I am cleansed now and continually from all my sin.
  4. By the blood of Jesus I am justified and God sees me as though I have never sinned.
  5. By the Blood of Jesus I am sanctified and set apart for God‘s holy purpose.


Hebrews 12:24 TPT ”And we have come to Jesus who established a new covenant with his blood sprinkled upon the mercy seat; blood that continues to speak from heaven, “forgiveness,” a better message than Abel’s blood that cries from the earth, “justice.”“

  • The blood of Jesus is the power source for our salvation and freedom.
  • The moment we receive Jesus Christ into our hearts and lives, we are forgiven for our sins.
  • Jesus becomes our ongoing sanctification, which produces the anointing we walk in as His Disciples.
  • We are no longer enemies of God; instead, we are Son’s & Daughter’s of the Kingdom!

Leviticus 16:14 NKJV ”He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.

  • In the Old Testament tabernacle, which housed the presence of God, there were seven places of power and anointing.

Leviticus 16:19 NKJV Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, cleanse it, and consecrate it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel. At two different times, the high priest would sprinkle the blood with his finger seven times.”


ASK; “How many know that we’re redeemed by the blood?”

Then ASK; “Do you know where the blood was shed?” And everyone always says, “At the cross.” That’s true; Jesus’ blood was shed at the cross. However, His blood was not shed just one time, but seven different times.

Now we are the new tabernacle of God.

We house the presence of God with a new covenant—a seven-fold blood covenant.


1 Peter 1:18-19 AMPC ”You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.“


Jesus shed His blood in seven places that you and I might be made whole, forgiven of our sins, and set free from the bondage of sin and the iniquity that has entered into our families.

The power of Christ’s blood flows from His complete work in giving His life and rising again.

Jesus it is FINISHED, not I am FINISHED!

So we can look at the individual stages to glean insight into what His sacrifice gives us.

The first place Jesus shed His blood was in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night of the Last Supper with His disciples.

It’s not a coincidence that the first place Jesus ransomed us or shed His redemptive blood was in a garden, because the first place we lost the power of God’s blessing was in another garden, the Garden of Eden.


The Lord gave His all for us so that we could freely come to Him. He shed His blood in seven different ways, each with a specific purpose:

7 places Jesus where shed his blood:

  1. The Blood of Faithfulness :- The blood shed from the brow of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane.
  • In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus won back your WILLPOWER.

Luke 22:42-46 NKJV ”saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”“


Blood flowed with His sweat. That was the night when Jesus experienced betrayal and suffered sorrow in His own flesh.


There in that garden, He made the decision to pay the price that would heal our wounds and allow Him to carry all betrayal, anguish, pain and despair upon Himself.

Therefore, the pain we feel as a result of betrayal has been taken away by His blood, and we can now live with confidence in His peace.

I’ve heard people say, “I have no willpower. I want to stop overeating, smoking, losing my temper (or whatever is out of control in their lives), but I have no willpower.” We lost our willpower to do what is right, to do what is best for us, to do what is healthy, and to do what will bring benefit and blessing when Adam disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. Eve was deceived by the serpent, but Adam willfully disobeyed God. In other words, Eve was deceived by Satan, but Adam made a choice to disobey God. God had told Adam, “All in the garden is yours except the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.” (See Genesis 3:17.) In essence, Adam said, “Father, not Your will, but mine be done,” and at that moment, Adam sacrificed man’s willpower in every area. With Adam’s disobedience, we gave our will over to the enemy and lost our ability to say yes to all the good God has for us and no to all the bad the enemy wants to do to us. The willpower we lost in the Garden of Eden was won back in the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus said, “Not My will, but Thy will be done.” (See Matthew 26:39.)

  1. The blood of Identity – The blood shed from the face of Jesus when His beard was ripped out.
  • His Face was disfigured so we could recover our HONOR & TRUE IDENTITY!

Isaiah 50:6-7 NKJV ”I gave My back to those who struck Me, And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard; I did not hide My face from shame and spitting. “For the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.“


Blood flowed from His Head and Face as they ripped out His beard. When they pulled out His beard, His face became completely disfigured, and He lost all human beauty.


Isaiah 53:2-3 NKJV ”For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.“


So just as His face was made unrecognisable and He lost His identity, by identifying with Jesus we recover our identity.

The plucking of His beard won back your honour and your identity.


Romans 8:29 NKJV ”For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.“


2 Corinthians 5:16-17 ESV ”From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.“


Ephesians 2:19-22 NKJV ”Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.“
