The Blood Of Jesus 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. (Rev. 12:11 KJV) Sharedâ€¦ [FONT=Verdana,]Stanley H. Frodsham, biographer of Smith Wigglesworth and longtime editor of The Pentecostal Evangel wrote in an editorial, "It is written, 'They overcame by the Blood of the Lamb.' They overcame hell's dragon with the simple weapon of Heaven's Lamb. When the dragon seeks to overcome you, take him to Calvary where through that sacred Blood his power was brought to naught. Magnify that Blood and the Lamb who shed the Blood. Give bold testimony to that power of that Blood." Speaking of bold testimony! John Osteen, (former) Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, is boldness personified. I heard a minister say about him, "The devil says every morning when John Osteen arises, 'Oh, no! He's up again!'" Brother Osteen's comments on Revelation 12:11 inspire boldness to all who read them in his book Unraveling the Mystery of the Blood Covenant: [FONT=Verdana,]The Blood of Jesus says, "You have victory!" After you become a covenant-person, Revelation 12:11 takes on new meaning. It tells you how you can overcome the devil. You overcome him by three things: First, by the Blood of the Lamb. When the devil comes against you, hold up your Bible and say to him, "Devil, I want you to see this. This is God's everlasting Blood Covenant that Jesus cut for me. Christ's righteousness has been imparted to me. All God's power and blessings are mine. I command and charge you, Satan, look at that Blood. You are already defeated." Second, by the word of their testimony. You can boldly say, "Satan, I dare to stand on God's promises. It is writtenâ€¦ They are tried and proven. I'm a covenant-person, and God will not break His Word with me." Third, they loved not their lives unto the death. These Christians made an unqualified commitment to God. All God had was theirs, and all that they had was His. They were covenant-men, covenant-women. They were willing to even sacrifice their own lives, if necessary, to live for Jesus and tell others about His way of living. You don't overcome Satan by your tenacity. You don't overcome him by your good works. You don't overcome him by your goodness. You don't overcome him by your own holiness or righteousness. You don't overcome him by your mental agility. You overcome him by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Just present that Blood to Satan and say, "See the Blood, devil. The One who shed this Blood crushed your head and took your power. He's my Lord!" Yes, the Blood of Jesus Christ speaks to you today, It cries out-- You are justified. You are redeemed. You have peace. You are God's property. You have eternal salvation. You are clean. You are washed. And you have victory. Oh, the wisdom of God, and the greatness of His wisdom! How unsearchable are His ways! How mighty is His wisdom for the human race and His love for man![/FONT][/FONT]Do not limit the power of the Blood of Christ to what you understand. There is no greater mystery in the Christian life than the worth and power of His Blood. Apply it by faith. Be a child of God who practices the "sprinkling of the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ." Sprinkle it anywhere there is evidence of pressure, tension, or any kind of satanic effort to thwart the complete will of God in your life. God wants it for a witness, "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the Blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better thingsâ€¦" (Hebrews 12:24). Praise the Lord, the Blood speaks! The Blood of Jesus is unassailable! That means that nothing can overcome or defeat it. Nothing can change that! This is why we continually apply the Blood. We know that it is working right now. We don't have to understand how it works but just believe that it does!
