This week we will explore BLOOD that relates to the following:
B = Believers
L = Live Liberated
O = Overcoming
O = Overjoyed
D = Deliverance
As we traverse this life, when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we come into the blessed knowledge of the importance what His shed BLOOD means to our destiny. Without His sacrifice where He represents the pure lamb who is the ultimate sacrifice to cover for all sin for all mankind, no one would ever have the opportunity of redemption, salvation, liberation, and acceptance eternally with God our Father. This is nothing to take lightly the reality that BLOOD gives life.
There are imitators to the truth of Jesus Christ’s gospel.
In this world some attempt to circumvent entrance into God’s kingdom by purporting the wolf in sheep’s clothing lies – “You can be saved by works, legalism, your own goodness, and God loves you and it really doesn’t take accepting Jesus as the only way.”
Rest assured, just like a fictional vampire sucks the very life blood out of their victims to remain alive is a lie; similar messages that create a false sense of security where not accepting God’s truth about Jesus being the only way to truth, life, and salvation is something as believers, we must not fall prey to and die deceived.
It is only the BLOOD of Jesus shed for our sins to cover all mankind forevermore that we enter into Life and that Life more abundantly for eternity.
Let us worship Him in song.

N.O.W. (New-Beginnings is Our Witness) so it is time for Salvation. Let us pray…
In order to make a decision for Jesus we must believe that He is the only begotten Son of the Father. When He came to earth He was born of a virgin, being entirely God and entirely man. He lived among us, being tempted in all points as we are, yet untainted by sin. In this way, He became an acceptable sacrifice for the sins of man. God sent Him because He loved the world, and He still does. This means that He loves you, and He sent His Son to lay down His life so that He could restore and fulfill yours!
God was burdened with an unquenchable love for the whole world. For this love, Jesus died an excruciating, reprehensible, and utterly denigrating death. He was beaten and His hairs were plucked from His face. A crown of thorns was twisted around His scalp, rupturing blood vessels so that the blood poured from his head. He was beaten with a cat-o-nine tails: a whip with nine strands often containing shards of metal, bone, and glass. The stripes upon his back were not from bruised or bleeding skin. His flesh was voraciously torn from His back, muscles and bones left totally exposed. After they were finished, the skin and muscle that was still attached to His body hung in ribbons.
Upon this back they laid a cross, forcing Him to carry it alone. As he dragged this cross, the weight pressed into His open body, inserting splinters of wood. When he could no longer carry it, the cross was given to another, yet Jesus was forced to walk the remaining distance to Golgotha. He was dehydrated. As He walked, the blood that continually dripped into His eyes caused severe burning, and the flesh of His back was totally exposed. He did this for you!
At Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified, they laid His body upon the cross naked. They parted His garments amongst themselves. For all of those who have ever been raped, in this moment, Jesus felt that shame. They nailed Him to that cross, placing the nails into the major nerves connecting the hands to the central nervous system. They placed a single nail through both of His feet. His legs were not allowed to hang straight down but were fixed so that His knees were bent at forty-five degrees, causing severe and excruciating cramping in His thighs. His muscles fatigued in minutes, but He continued to live for hours.
Upon the cross, death came by asphyxiation. In the position that Jesus was nailed to the cross, it was impossible to breathe. It was not that He was gasping for air. The position of crucifixion caused His lungs to be maximally inflated with air. He had to struggle to breathe out. Jesus had to drag his back up and down the wooden cross for hours before breathing His final breath. In order to drag His open flesh up the cross, He had to push up on his feet causing his hands to twist upon the nails that were driven through His nerves. Crucifixion placed the body in such a position that the joints of the arm would slowly become dislocated as the victim suffered. By the time Jesus neared death, all of His bones were out of joint, adding literal inches to the lengths of His arms. He did this for you1!
With a face marred beyond recognition, Jesus cried out to the Father, “My God My God, why have you forsaken Me?” He suffered the ultimate feelings of rejection, because when He became sin for us, He had to be forsaken by His Father in heaven. In the end, the internal complications resulting from crucifixion ruptured the heart of Jesus. When they pierced His side blood and water poured out. Jesus died of a heart broken for us. He died that we might live, not only eternally, but also abundantly. He died to give us the very life of God. He is the acceptable sacrifice—the only sacrifice that God will accept for our sins.
In order to be saved we must not only believe that Jesus died, but that He was resurrected on the third day. The victory wasn’t in the death but in the resurrection of Jesus Christ when He arose having all power in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18). He later ascended to heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father, where He remains to this day continually making intercession for us. This is the God that I serve! This is the God of love! This is the gospel of Jesus Christ! The Bible says that if we confess the Lord Jesus Christ with our mouth, and believe that God has raised Him from the dead in our heart we will be saved (Romans 10:9). If you believe this testimony of Jesus Christ in your heart, then you can confess this prayer with your mouth and you will be saved:
“Jesus, I come before you and acknowledge that I am a sinner. I repent. I call upon your name and I ask you to cleanse me with your blood. Forgive me of my sins. I invite you into my heart Jesus Christ. I believe that you were born of a virgin, died and were resurrected on the third day that I might have eternal life. I open my life to you and I ask you to come in and be my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen”.

Pray the following every day to continue to build up your faith as a believer in Jesus Christ and the power that His shed BLOOD has done in order to redeem, deliver, heal, restore, and liberate all who accept personally so that eternal life is a reality.
Lord I come before you in prayer and I pray that the God of my Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, would give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ: the eyes of my understanding being enlightened that I would know what is the hope of your calling, and what are the riches of the glory of your inheritance in the saints, to know the exceeding greatness of your power to us who believe, according to the working of your mighty power, which you wrought in Christ, when you raised Him from the dead and set Him at your own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, But also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
I bow my knee to the God of my Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and on earth is named, that you would grant me, according to the riches of your glory to be strengthened with might by your Spirit in the inner man; that Christ would dwell in my heart by faith, that I, being rooted and grounded in love, would be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that I would be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all I can ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all generations, age without end.
Father I pray that I would be filled with the knowledge of your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. That I would walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might according to your glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; giving thanks unto the Father, which has made me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light: who has delivered me from the power of darkness, and has translated me into the Kingdom of His dear Son. In whom I have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.
And this I pray, that my love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that I may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
Lord I thank you that you will count me worthy of my calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, so that the name of my Lord Jesus will be glorified, and I will be glorified in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:1-3
Lord I pray for my family and community that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, and that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect us from the evil one.
