Pastor Taiwo @ Sunday Services
In continuation of the message he started the previous Thursday, Pastor Taiwo at the December 3 Sunday services said that having the understanding of the efficacy of the blood of Jesus in a believer’s life, and placing a demand on it, gives such a believer the authority over the devil.
“If you don’t know that you are redeemed by the blood, you make yourself a prey to the devil,” he said.
Speaking from 1 Peter 1:18-19 and Romans 3:21, he said that the blood of Jesus is the most precious thing in a believer’s life because it restores, sanctifies, brings fulfilment which no other thing or human being can give, and makes a way as well as a place for believers. This blood, according to him, guarantees the remission of sin once and for all. “His blood grants approval and gives access into God’s presence. It is the visa that makes you a citizen of heaven,” he stated.
He therefore urged all to always be conscious of the blood of Christ, have faith in it and make use of it. “The beginning of your worship and prayer is the consciousness of the blood. Without it, total restoration and victory are impossible,” he said.

FAITH IN THE BLOOD
Pastor Taiwo @Thursday showers
Pastor Taiwo at the November 30 Thursday Showers service said that the blood of Jesus is the most important thing in the lives of men as it was the last joker God pulled out to defeat the devil. But it can only be accessed through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. “Once you put your trust in the blood of Jesus, you begin to enjoy the eternal blessings God has for you and you won’t be afraid of the devil and his antics anymore,” he said.
Speaking from Revelation 12:11; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Romans 3:21-25 and Revelation 1:1-2, he said that anyone who accepts this free gift of Christ and activates it becomes transfigured from old to a new being. This, he said, could only be attained by having the knowledge of the efficacy of the blood, believing in it and confessing it. “The blood of Jesus makes you a conqueror; but if you don’t know, believe in and confess it, you will be at the mercy of the devil,” he stated.
He therefore urged every believer never to joke with the significance of the blood of Jesus in their lives because that is what makes them acceptable before God and gives them victory on earth.
