The Power of the Blood

“The key to power in the final hour”

As the battle lines of Armageddon are being drawn out on the evening news before our eyes, Christians all over the world are searching for the key to victory in the last days over the Antichrist and the Beast and they are finding that it lies solely in the power of the blood of the Lamb. The Book of Revelation makes it abundantly clear. ~ “And they overcame him [the Dragon-Antichrist] by the blood of the Lamb” (Rev. 12.11). The Antichrist is called “the man of sin” (2Thes. 2.3). This overcoming Church of the last days is said to be “not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing” (Eph. 5.27). No one will be able to stand before the Prince of Darkness until they have been, as the Apostle John writes, “washed in the blood of the Lamb” (Rev. 7.14). But, what does this mean and how is it done?

The Blood of the Lamb

The only forgiveness for sin is through the blood of Jesus. But, how is the blood of the Lamb applied? All sin, if not forgiven by the blood of the lamb, brings the punishment of the curse of God. Scripture affirms ~ “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed [is] everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them” (Galatians 3.10). The blood of the Lamb of God was shed 2000 years ago for the remission of sins, yet many of the children of God continue to suffer the consequences of the curse because they don’t know how to apply the blood of Jesus. It is the blood, and only the blood, that washes away sin. There is no substitute for the precious blood of Christ that cleanses away sin. ~ “For the redemption of their souls is costly, And it shall cease forever. None of them can by any means redeem his brother, Nor give to God a ransom for him. That he should continue to live eternally, And not see the Pit” (Psalm 49.7-9).

The Hidden Treasures of Wisdom

Some have presumed that sin is purged by repentance, others by doing good deeds, still others think sins are removed by a priest or some other cleric. However, the Bible makes it clear that the blood of the Lamb can only be applied by the same individual himself who has committed the sins. Let us consider the words of the Apostle John. ~ “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” (Revelation 7.14). The question remains, how one can wash away sin with the blood if it is not known where the blood is and nor how it can be employed. Thank God, the Spirit is given to us to lead us into all of the truth and to reveal all hidden knowledge. The Revelation of God’s hidden truth brings unity, riches, and wisdom. ~ “That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2.2-3).

Applying the Blood to Take Away Curse

Scripture reveals that the shed blood of Jesus is applied in two logical steps, which must be understood and put into practice by all of those who would enjoy the benefits. The first step is to recognize that the New Testament is written “in the blood of Jesus.” Jesus said that the New Testament, or the word of God, is ‘written,’ or constituted of the Blood of the Lamb. ~ “And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many” (Mark 14.24). This means that the Word of God and the Blood are one substance. The Old Testament priesthood portrays this when God institutes the Old Covenant, and Moses is instructed by God to sprinkle the blood of the sacrifice lamb (Jesus) on the Book of the Law (Bible) and then on the heads of the people. ~ “For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, [20] saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you” (Hebrews 9.19-20).

Jesus Washes His Disciples

It’s time to get serious about the word of God. Jesus establishes how the blood of the Lamb is applied and washes from all sin. He was preaching to the Disciples, and as His message came to a conclusion, He said these words, which demonstrate that the blood of the Lamb is in the Word of God and is applied by hearing the preaching of the Word and acting upon it. ~ “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you” (John 15.3). John the Divine (Apostle) was present that day, and note he writes that you have to “walk in the light2 [word]” for it to effectually cleanse your life or all curses brought on by sin. Keep yourself free from the curses of sin by the blood of the Lamb, washing yourself daily in the word of God by spending time in the scripture.

1John 1.7

But if we walk in the light [word] as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.


  1. Deuteronomy 28.15-68
  2. Psalm 119.105
