Revelation 12:11a NLT
“And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.”
Series: Overcoming the Devil
We are to live as an overcomer. The devil cannot trick us out of God’s will for our life by deceiving us as we are overcomers because of Jesus.
We learnt two keys from last week’s podcast. One was to completely submit to God and to people that God has placed in our lives and another was to expose the lies of the enemy.
Today’s scripture portion is from Revelation 12:11. It says that the key to defeat the enemy is through the blood of Jesus.
Why is the blood of Jesus so powerful?
The blood of Jesus is powerful because it is pure. The devil is afraid of purity, righteousness and holiness.
The reason the devil is not afraid of us is because we are not pure. He knows us better than ourselves and knows what exactly is our weakness.
However, when we trust in the blood of Jesus and lean and depend on Him everyday and for the rest of our life, we can be assured that the devil will see us not from the perspective that we are unholy but he will begin to see us from the perspective that God has made us holy through the blood of Jesus. The devil will see us wrapped in the blood of Jesus, wrapped in His holiness, wrapped in His righteousness and purity and that is a good ground for the enemy to be afraid of us.
The second reason why the blood of Jesus is so powerful is because it reminds the devil that we do not belong to him. It was the blood of Jesus that was paid to redeem us from the enemy.
One of the things that the enemy tries to do is to deceive us in believing that we belong to him, but every time we bring the blood of Jesus into the picture, that is a firm reminder that he doesn’t have any access into our lives.
Jesus poured out every drop of His blood on the cross for you and I. The blood of Jesus is the proof that we do not belong to the enemy anymore.
Every time the blood of Jesus is brought into the picture the real God is brought into the picture and that is enough to help us to defeat the temptations of the enemy.
If we will learn to trust in the blood of Jesus then we will never again have to walk in defeat because we will defeat the enemy by the blood of Lamb.
God bless you.
