They overcame him (adversary) by the blood of the Lamb.

They overcame him (adversary) by the blood of the Lamb.

By what did they overcome the adversary?

The Blood of the Lamb.

Why the blood of the Lamb?

How does the Blood of the Lamb overcome the adversary?

What did the Lamb do?

Took away the sins through a sacrifice of shed blood.

Life given up to take on the sins of the world.

So, the taking away of sins is how the adversary is overcome.

Think about that for a minute.

Why would the adversary be overcome, overwhelmed, crushed, engulfed, overpowered, prostrated, devastated, staggered, confounded, by the sacrifice of the Lamb?

Because the sin is taken away, covered, removed, gone, sin is no more.

Thus the power of the adversary must lie in the sin of mankind.

If the sin has been taken away, then the adversary would be stripped of his power.

“Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”

Our sin has been removed from us as far as the East is from the West.

It has been taken away

We have boldness to enter the Holy of Holies because of the blood of the Lamb.

We are sinless because of the Lamb of God who has removed the sin from us.

We are cleansed from sin. We are clean and free from sin.

The adversary has nothing against us.

Our faith does not rely on ourselves, on our efforts, on our goodness, on our ability to feel victorious.

Our faith relies only on what Christ has done: taken away the sin of the world.

Our faith lies in Jesus Christ and we testify alone of the shed blood of Jesus.

That is why Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith.

A living testimony of those who believe in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ: true prophecy.

This is it! All we need to know is Christ and His death that took our sins away!

And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul until death.

The Deceiver

We heard a story from a friend of ours the other night about a type of snake that they have in Ontario. He thinks that it might be called a ‘mud’ snake. Anyway, if you were to tread anywhere near the snake it would quickly rise up off the ground and blow up its face just like a cobra would. Upon seeing it most anyone would assume it was a cobra and quickly make their escape. Now, if you had been forewarned about this particular snake, you would have been informed that this snake actually had no venom, that it was completely harmless, and it’s whole rising and face blowing up was just a fa├žade and nothing more. The fact is, is that if you were to continue to come closer to the snake it would fall down to the ground and play dead. It appears dangerous, but it is actually completely harmless.
