"We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the word of God says the blood of Jesus does for us."—Derek Prince

 

This morning I’m going to teach on how to appropriate the blood of Jesus, how to get the full effects of the blood of Jesus working in your life. Revelation 12:11 describes how the people of God on earth play their part in obtaining that victory. It’s a statement made by the angels but it’s made about the believers on earth. And it says:

“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony...”
We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the word of God says the blood of Jesus does for us. I’m going to say that again. We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the word of God says the blood of Jesus does for us.
Applying the blood in the Old Testament

Now let’s consider what they had to do [in the Old Testament]. Each father had to choose a lamb. And then they had to sacrifice the lamb and they had to catch its blood in a basin. It’s blood was very precious. None of it was to be spilled on the ground. Now, the lamb was slain, the blood was in the basin, it was the means of protection but in the basin it didn’t protect a single person. They were required to transfer the blood from the basin to the doors of their homes and to smear it or sprinkle it on the lentil and on the two sideposts.

Applying the blood in the New Testament

You remember what we said? We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the word of God says the blood of Jesus does for us. What is it that gets the blood from the basin to where we live [in the New Testament]? Our testimony, that’s right. Testimony is a very simple thing, it’s just saying a few words according to Scripture. It’s like the little hyssop but it saves us. It’s our protection. I cannot overemphasize for you here the importance of your testimony.

For us as believers in the Bible and in Jesus Christ, confession means we say the same with our mouth as God says in His word. We make the words of our mouth agree with the word of God. You settle your destiny by the words you speak.

SCRIPTURE PROCLAMATIONS

I dare you to actually open up your mouth and proclaim these Scriptures out loud. You guys will be shocked how much it shifts the atmosphere. ​Proclaiming out loud "It is written" is one of the most powerful spiritual weapons we have.
