An excerpt from a chapter in my latest book #FOLLLOW…
You will always have to believe God for something. You will not come to a place in your Christian walk where your faith is not on the line for something. My faith is just as much on the line right now as the day I came into the kingdom. It will always be a walk of faith. As long as you are on the earth, you have to believe in what you cannot see, believe that you possess something you have not been given. He says that for many of these things, we will die in faith without receiving.
Hebrews 11:13 “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them,[a] embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
But the important point to realize about this is that Pharaoh will come to take you back. You may think you are free and clear, but the devil always tries to come and take you back.
Matthew 12:43-45 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he says, “I will return to my house from which I came.” And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”
Even after your deliverance from an ungodly situation, and/or demonic oppression or deliverance into salvation, Satan will not give up. He will fight you to the death. He will stay after you until the day you leave this earth because if you are breathing, there is a chance for him to pull you away from God. And while he may try, if we stand firm on the Word of God, and use the weapons that He has provided for us, we will prevail! Jesus came to give us life, an abundant life! A life with peace, even with opposition, far outweighs a life of sin. This is why it is important to remember our adversary never gives up and neither can we.
FACT: YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS!
In the book of Exodus, we can read about the plagues. The plague of the death of the firstborn children is a type and shadow of the blood of Jesus, because they used the blood of a lamb to paint their doorposts as a sign to protect them from the plague and Jesus is referred to in the New Testament as the Lamb of God. (A type and shadow is an example in the Old Testament, that is repeated in the New Testament.) John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
Exodus 12:13 “Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.”
The same blood, the blood of Jesus, is on us today, to deliver us from the power of this earth, and the power of the judgment of this earth. The judgment of this earth is coming. Do not be deceived. You have the same blood to protect you as Israel did. Just as the angel of death had to pass over the doors that were stained with the blood, when you are stained with His blood, God will bring you out and God will keep you out of that judgment. If the blood of animals, a type and shadow of the blood of Jesus prevailed for Israel, how much more the Blood of Jesus today!
