Joyce Meyer's Daily 15 October 2017 Devotional: The Blood of Jesus

Topic: The Blood of Jesus [Sunday October 15, 2017]

And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. — John 16:23-24

The concept of Christ’s blood confuses some people, but without a proper understanding of it, believers cannot appropriate its power.

When Adam sinned, his sin was passed down through his blood. David acknowledged this truth in Psalm 51:5: Behold, I was brought forth in [a state of] iniquity; my mother was sinful who conceived me [and I too am sinful].

Jesus came to redeem mankind, to purchase our freedom and to restore us to our original state. How could He possibly do that with sinful blood?

Jesus is referred to as the “last Adam” in 1 Corinthians 15:45. Because He was born of God, not man, there is life in the blood of Jesus, and when it is properly applied, the life in His blood will conquer and overcome the death that works in us through sin.

God wants to restore us to the place of authority that is ours. He has already made all the arrangements. We might say that He has “sealed the deal.” The purchase price has been paid in full. We have been purchased with a price—the precious blood of Jesus.

Prayer Starter: God, I am redeemed and set free by the blood of Jesus. Even though I was born into sin, the blood of Jesus has cleansed me. Thank You, Lord!
