Have you ever felt like the devil is viciously after you? You are probably a “good christian” and believer who does what is supposedly right and yet for one reason or another, the devil seems to be attacking you.
I have felt that way. As the devil and his agents pelt accusations at me. Reminding me of past sins, transgressions and iniquities.
For a long time I struggled with this. I didn’t understand what I was doing wrong to be so attacked and malingered. Then one day as I was reading through the scriptures, I came across a powerful passage in the book of Revelations.
The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Messiah have now come, because the accuser of our brothers has been thrown out:
the one who accuses them before our God day and night.
11 They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.
This Bible verse opened my eyes on how believers defeat the enemy.
It also revealed to me that believers were under utilizing the Blood of Jesus.
Many believers do not know much about the Blood of Jesus and how they can use it to break the enemy’s strong holds in their lives.
During the last supper, Jesus told his disciples that his blood was part of the New Convent for the forgiveness of sins.
Then He took a cup, and after giving thanks, He gave it to them and said, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 For this is My blood that establishes the covenant; it is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Don’t allow the devil to guilt you and shame you for past sins. The blood of Jesus is able to make new and cleanse completely. If you are struggling with sin, go to the father, ask to be washed in the blood of Jesus and repent of your sins.
And if the devil ever dares to start accusing you and reminding you of the past or your shortcomings, just give him your testimony and plead the blood of Jesus.
The blood of Jesus will render all the power and wiles of the enemy powerless.
If you need to know more about the blood of Jesus and what it can do, please read the brilliant and expository article on the Blood of Jesus by Anomalous Darling.
If you’ve been reading Anomalous Darlings for an extended amount of time, you probably know two things to be true (in addition to my love for Jesus, family and cupcakes): 1) I, too struggle with surrendering to God and 2) I enjoy mystery murder T.V. shows and books. It’s an unlikely combination, but let me […]
