I want you to take God's word please and turn if you have your bibles with you to John chapter six and if you did not bring a bible there probably is one there in the pew rack in front you John chapter six, the title of our message, THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD. I begin reading a very strange passage of scripture now, John chapter six and verse fifty three. Then Jesus said unto them verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, ye have no life in you, whosoever eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat, that means food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood dwelleth in me and I in him. As the living father hath sent me and I live by the father so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven, not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth of this bread shall live forever. These things said he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples when they heard this said this is a hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it he said unto them, doth this offend you? What if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? And then here's the key.

That is, we're to have victory in the blood of Jesus. But in all honesty, how many Christians in this church or any other church do you know of that is really, that are really living, walking in victory, that are experiencing victory. Not very many that I know of. And why is this? Is it because the blood really doesn't have any power or they have not availed themselves of the power of the blood of Jesus Christ? I'll tell you why I think it is. I think it is because there are many Christians today who understand the power of the shed blood, but they do not understand the power of the shared blood of Jesus. And I believe that if you'll learn this truth today your heart will be warmed and blessed as mine was when I prepared this message. Now, let me tell you about the blood of Jesus Christ. First of all, it is sacred blood because Jesus Christ was born of a virgin and the virgin birth was so necessary for Jesus to be who he was. It was so necessary for Jesus to have the kind of blood that he had in him. Now, what kind of blood flowed through the veins of the Lord Jesus? Well, it was sacred blood and I'll tell you why. Jesus was virgin born. We need to understand this, that the blood is determined by the father and not by the mother. Did you know that? Did you k ...
