Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. 1 John 5:5-6.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Appropriate to propitiate. Appropriate to participate. If you do not bring the Lamb and apply the Blood you will still live in bondage to Satan’s lies of condemnation.

In the Tabernacle of Moses, under the law of the sacrifices for sin, if the sinner did not himself bring an unblemished lamb and apply the blood there was no covering of his sins.

Under the New Covenant, you must first receive Jesus as Lord and believe that in Him you are forgiven and justified but to benefit you must apply the blood every time you fail so that you do not have a conscience full of dead works. And where the carcass lies, there the vultures will gather.

Be thankful that I have forgiven you and stop questioning and doubting that. Understand the power of the blood. The blood can overcome every accusation of the evil one.

Have no anxiety about anything but in everything in prayer and petition make your troubles known to Me with thanksgiving and I will take care of them. I gave you My Son, won’t I give you everything with Him? With Him I give you the Kingdom. It pleases Me to do so. You can have the peace in your heart that surpasses understanding because it does not depend on your outward circumstances, it depends on knowing who you are in Me and what I do for those that are Mine.

You must know that the Lamb is your Lamb. Until you know and believe Jesus shed His blood for YOU and would have done it even if there was no other person in the world, you do not know the extent of My love and care for YOU. You alone. I planned you from before the foundation of the world and made you to be unique and have a unique assignment for you and a place of grace for you to do fruitful works of excellence and beauty. But your going forward to that life is all bound up with the blood, for without forgiveness and cleansing you cannot go forward to your life in Christ Jesus that I prepared for you.

The world started out with only two people and I made the entire universe for them and came every evening to walk with them, teach them things, and have fellowship with them. But they put a stop to all that and shut Me out of their lives. They no longer were open to receive from Me.

They had developed fear of Me. They hid their lives of sin away from Me in darkness and preferred it to the light because their deeds were evil.

But if you will just step out into the light of My Word and appropriate the blood of the Lamb slain since the foundation of the world, your name is written forever in the Lamb’s Book of Life and you have passed from death to life and you will not be judged with the ungodly evil doers for the judgment for your sins fell on My Son whom you have received as your Lord and His blood paid the ransom and cleansed away your sins as if they had never been. I am not just letting you by ignoring your sins as covered, I have removed them totally by the blood of My Son as if they had never been there. No stain remains.

Now boldly step up and receive all the wondrous gifts that are contained in the gift of My Son for the blood has opened to you a new and living way. The highway of the redeemed, the highway of holiness, this place of joyful shouts and singing where the devil cannot walk.

And the blood opened the way of the righteous to you.

The blood has acquitted you from every sin and act of lawlessness and restored you to a position as if you had never sinned. The blood of the covenant also raises you up out of sin and eternal death to grace and eternal life and peace.

Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21.

My plans for you are shalom and not evil, a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11. Fullness in every area of your life.

I have drawn you with human cords, with bands of love, raising you up into My everlasting arms as infants to My cheeks. Pure as if you never sinned and without fault to grow in My Words of life. You are redeemed and washed clean of sin in the blood of Jesus, you are born again by My Word. First the blood and then the water and together you are transformed.

When Jesus died upon the Cross both blood and water flowed out of His pierced heart. Jesus came in the water and the blood.

Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. 1 John 5:5-6.

To become a new creation you need the blood and the Word. And you continue to need both as you journey through life to complete the work I gave you to do with success and joy to receive your full reward, to receive the crown of life.

The blood is a permanent and continuous flow of cleansing from unrighteousness and sin, the Word is your constant armor and sword for renewing your mind and washing away all filth and lust of the world, the flesh and the devil. The Word teaches you how to take authority over the evil one, break the power of sin, and rule your thoughts and actions so that your soul (mind, will, and emotions) work for you instead of against you and are no longer permitted by you to trap you in torment and oppression.

That is why the devil fights the blood and the Word with all the fury and might he can raise up through storms, trials, and anyone around you that he can tap captive to do his will.

There is a reason that when Jesus fights the battle that inaugurates His millennium reign on earth that He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, with His Name called “The Word of God,” a sharp sword out of His mouth, and the Name on His robe and on His thigh, of “King of kings, and Lord of lords.”

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16.

His robe is dipped in blood but you are clothed in fine linen, white and clean, to accompany Him in battle and reign with Him. In Him, by His Word, His Blood, and His Spirit, I have made you MORE than a conqueror, MORE than an overcomer, MORE than a victor.

Again the blood and the water with the sword of the Spirit. The Spirit, the water, and the blood. These three are always testifying together for you that you who have Jesus have eternal life. And not only testifying for you and to you, but enabling you to testify and fight as well.

“When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, who is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.” John 15:26-27.

Before you were formed in your mother’s womb I knew you. And so did Jesus for His goings forth are from eternity. We are One. You have been known and loved from everlasting to everlasting.

Appropriate what is yours, do not let it lie undiscovered, do not bury the gifts I give you. My Words are only life to those who find them. Find the treasure in the field, find the pearl of great price, appropriate it and put it to use. It is yours so you can reign with Him forever. Do not receive My grace in vain. Put it to work.

He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:26-28.

Jesus emptied Himself of His powers as God, when He, as My Word to you, took flesh and dwelt with you. He accepted your sins into His sinless flesh and went from eternal life to the dust of eternal death in His flesh, but by the blood of the eternal covenant I raised Him up to equip you with all you need for every good and perfect work, all you need for life and godliness. You lack no good thing, but you have to appropriate them all. You have to seek them all.

The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; but they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing. Psalm 34:10.

And first and foremost comes the blood of the Lamb. You can never even enter the gate without bringing your Lamb.

And to appropriate the blood you have to know the Word. Spiritual thoughts are spiritually discerned. Faith comes by hearing My Word but how can you hear if you are not listening? My Word today is very available on the internet and all kinds of media, there is no reason you would not come across it if you are interested. The Word and the blood are One in Christ. The Word made flesh and the life of the flesh is in the blood.

To apply the blood you must know My Word. Without Moses hearing My Word and the Israelites listening and obeying My Word no one would have been saved the night of the Passover when the destroyer came. By obeying My Word and applying the blood of the lamb they were saved, delivered, and redeemed.

It is the same for you today, but it is a spiritual application.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God with all prayer and petition praying at all times in the Spirit. Ephesians 6:17-18.

The Word and His blood are inseparable.

The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is sated with fat (the anointing), with the blood of lambs and goats. Isaiah 34:6.

I love you. Appropriate to participate. Do not stay on the sidelines when I have invited you to the banquet.

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.1 John 4:9.
