Good morning saints,
I shared on Sunday how to live from inside out because of the resurrection life of our Lord Christ lives in us. (Colossians1:27)
This resurrection life lives in you and me has defeated sin, death, sickness and infirmities, the spirit of the world and the works of the devil (1 John 3:8)
My advice for you saints , is that communion is so important to partake as often as you can. When you take communion, Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:23-25 to you “ For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, (v24) “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (V25) “In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
On the Cross, our Lord Jesus shed His blood seven times
1) Thorns placed on His head, meant that the Lord Jesus has forgiven our sins in our mind, our thought and imagination !
2) Jesus was beaten on His back and blood was shed on His back for the forgiveness over our turning our back to Him and His stripes were for our healing too!
3) Our Lord was pierced
In both His hands- His blood was shed over the sin of our hands-whatever we have done that was not right in God sight!
4) Jesus feet were pierced and His blood was shed to forgive snd cleanse our walk that was not pleasing to Him!
5) Finally Our Lord Jesus’s heart was thrust by a spear and blood and water was shed. Talked about the forgiveness over our heart or soul that we have sinned against Him!
In the Old Testament, in the time of Atonement, Yom Kippur, the blood was sprinkled 7 times on the Mercy seat in the Holy of Holies to symbolise the blood that was shed by our Lord Jesus 7 times through His death and resurrection (Leviticus 16:14)
Saints today we have been washed and cleansed from our sins in every area of our life and also that Christ lives in every one of us.
In the Old Testsment, Yom Kippur, Kippur meant that the blood of the bull can only cover the sin but not able to cleanse or remove sin. Thus every year in the Old Testament time, the high priest has to atone for the sins of the people and himself!
Thanks be to God for sending to humanity our Lord Jesus Christ as a Lamb of God to die for our sin on the Cross, once and forever!
Thus today, Jesus lives in us and we can be His hands and His feet and His mouth wherever we go!
God bless you always
