LESSON OUTLINE 1: SIGNIFICANCE OF THE BLOOD COVENANT
READ >> OPEN HEAVENS 27 DECEMBER 2020
A. We cannot speak of spiritual covenants without speaking of blood.
Every spiritual covenant is enacted through the shedding of blood. “Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.” (Heb. 9:18-NKJV).
The difference between a covenant and a partnership is that covenant involves blood.
The covenants of the Old Testament were sealed with the blood of circumcision (Acts 7:8) and the sacrifices of animals but in the New Testament, by the blood of Jesus Christ (Heb. 9:11-14).
B. Hence, the blood covenant is the seal of the Bible (Heb. 9:18; Luke 22:20)
C. When we understand the blood covenant and who we are, as well as what we have in the Lord Jeşus, we are then no longer bound to our feelings but can stand with boldness (Hebrew 4:15-16).
D. This blood covenant, made on our behalf, by Jesus Christ is a steadfast promise and an unbreakable covenant (Gen.17:7; Gal.3:17).
CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should discuss whether or not the blood of Jesus should be pleaded over everything or every matter.
LESSON OUTLINE 2: THE SAVING POWER IN THE BLOOD OF JESUSS
A. Every human being has the opportunity to be reconciled to God through the blood covenant with the body of Christ, the Saviour, who died for us.
B. The blood of Jesus personifies the covenant of salvation (1 Cor. 11:25)
C. We receive God’s righteousness, not because of our own worth, but because of a covenant made long before we were ever born.
D. Cod and Jesus created a platform for the redemption of mankind (John 3:16).
E. Every sinner is deformed (Rom. 5:12), dethroned (Rom. 3:23) and awaiting death (Rom. 6:23).
F. The blood of Jesus has brought forgiveness (Eph.1:7), restoration Heb.9:15) and salvation (Acts 4:12; 1Tim.2:5-6) to as many as will receive Him (1Jn.1:8-9), thereby making them a part of God’s family (John 1:12; 1Cor1:9).
G. God has also given us an inheritance (Acts 26:18).
H. The saving power in the blood of Jesus neutralises and destroys every evil covenant entered into knowingly or ignorantly (Colossians 2:13-14).
CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Class should be asked if they truly believe in the power in the blood of Jesus to save, deliver, heal, set free, etc.
SUMMARY: There is power in the blood of Jesus.
CONCLUSION: The blood of Jesus is the covenant of God for the remission of sin. To enjoy the full benefits of this covenant, you must accept the sacrifice that Jesus offers through His blood (Heb. 9:28).
EVALUATION: Teacher should ask the students to explain how the blood of Jesus can deliver sinners and those under the captivity of other blood covenant?
CLOSING PRAYER: Father, let the blood of Jesus work wonders in my life.
ASSIGNMENT: Share the experience of how you have obtained forgiveness and salvation through the blood of Jesus
