THE NEW TESTAMENT IN HIS BLOOD – Pastor Chris
Sunday, November 4, 2018
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me (1 Corinthians 11:25).
When the Lord Jesus gave Himself for us, it wasn’t just the blood of a natural man that was shed, because His life didn’t come from the first Adam; His life came from the Word (John 1:14 NKJV). His life was divine; His shed blood was divine; He gave up His divine life for us. So, when He said, “…this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11:25), He meant that all the provisions of the New Testament are sealed in, and guaranteed by, His blood.
Your life and your future have a guarantee in the blood of Jesus. In your life, all the provisions of His vicarious death, burial, and resurrection, have become a reality. There’s nothing in life that you could ever want that His blood doesn’t cover. That’s why the Spirit, through the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 3:21, declares unequivocally, “…all things are yours.” Hallelujah!
He’s given you strength, wisdom, courage, health, and so much more. He’s taken everything of darkness away from you, and translated you into His marvellous light. Your riddance; your severance from darkness to light, from the pains, misery, and negativities of life—into the glorious kingdom of His love-Son—was through His blood. Colossians 1:13-14 says He “…hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”
You’re guaranteed to succeed; you’re a victor for life; your prosperity is guaranteed. Have this consciousness when you partake of the Communion, or whenever you drink the cup. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for my triumphant life, and excellent future, guaranteed in the blood of Jesus. I refuse to fear or listen to the voice of doubt, and unbelief, because the dreams that you’ve put in my heart are coming to fruition. I’m guaranteed to succeed; I’m guaranteed to prosper and I’m victorious forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
