Deliverance By the Blood
I recently ministered to a congregation about the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ. I used an interpreter to translate the message into the language of the local people. I was midway into the lesson when all of a sudden the interpreter started to shout.
“I can’t do this! This is too hard for me! Will someone please pray for me?”
I reached my hand out and touched him on the shoulder to pray for him, when all of a sudden the young man ran out of the sanctuary and into the hallway. It caused a great disruption in the meeting, and the people stood up to watch him. I was able to get the people to sit down and we continued on with the meeting. But what I was not able to see from the pulpit was the young man as he began to vomit and vomit, and vomit.
What happened during this healing service? Unbeknown to me, this nice young man was not born-again, and the demons within him could not handle the message of the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ. And this young man was delivered from demon spirits, and received Christ as his Savior.
I have seen time and time again, as I preach about the blood that Jesus shed for us that supernatural power is released and the demons residing within the unregenerated souls are literally tormented and they scream and act out in terror.
What is the message of the redemptive blood of Christ? “But [in fact] He has borne our griefs, and He has carried our sorrows and pains; yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken, struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.” Isaiah 53:4-5. AMP.
If ever there was a time, it is now for us, the ambassadors of Christ, to follow His example and to be about our heavenly Father’s business and return to the true gospel message of the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ and preach and minister with His authority with signs and wonders following and set the captives free.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19.
