POWER IN THE BLOOD – By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Read: Matthew 26:26-28
Matthew 26:26-28“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
Wrong use of the tongue can be so destructive that it can forever severe one’s link with the Saviour in a
situation such as blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. May this never be your portion in Jesus name.
However, avoid everything that attracts you into sin as they are targeted at breaking your link with the
Vine. Just feeding your eyes lustfully for a few minutes on pornographic materials and websites could have the end result of breaking the tree-branch relationship that exists between Jesus and you.
At the first Holy Communion service with the disciples, the Lord said, “For this is my blood of the new testament,which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:28
In other words, He was saying that if you have been detached from the Vine and already withering, when you reconcile with God and receive the blood, you will be revived. The blood is so powerful that it can flush out every stranger hibernating in your body. Matthew 15:13 says, “But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” The doctors will tell you that one reason you bleed after cutting your skin is because the body system recognizes that once there is an opening in the body, strangers can come in; so the blood rushes out to prevent strangers from coming in.
Is there any contamination in your system? It shall be uprooted. Every virus, germ or bacteria hibernating in your system shall die and be flushed out as you partake of the blood of Jesus Christ made available through the Holy Communion. Revelation 12:11 says the blood of Jesus can give you victory over the devil. As you partake of the Holy Communion, key into it in faith and receive your victory over forces of darkness. As soon as the sick branch is healed, it begins to bear fruit again (John 15:5). Are you a sick branch? Or have you become detached through compromising with sin? Repent from your heart, dump that sin that broke you away from the Vine and reconnect today. If you are not yet born-again, it means you have never been connected to the Lover of your soul. Confess your sins, forsake them and invite Jesus Christ into your heart and confess Him as your Lord. As you do so, you will be attached to the Vine.
- The blood of Jesus is under utilised by believers today. Apply this blood on every area of life, using it to attack every opposition you are facing.
