What exactly is the power of the blood of Christ?
"Let us take time and trouble to learn the full blessing and power of that blood. The blood of Jesus is the greatest mystery of eternity, the deepest mystery of divine wisdom. Let us not imagine that we can easily grasp its meaning. God thought four thousand years were necessary to prepare men for it, and we also must take time if we are to gain a knowledge of the power of the blood."
Andrew Murray, The Power of the Blood of Christ
The Power of the Blood of Christ does a wonderful job of introducing the need for Christians to claim the blood of Jesus, and in confirming its biblical authenticity. In a day when the blood of Jesus is being removed from the very translation of the Bible itself, when the mention of the blood of Jesus is considered offensive even in the churches, it is more important than ever for this teaching by Andrew Murray to remove the misconceptions.
This book is a God-send for those who are willing to accept the ways of God without cringing. Though the blood of Jesus is not in any way magical, it is nonetheless crucial and foundational to receiving any benefit whatsoever from God. Murray clearly shows this truth in his books. He also mentions scores of benefits that are only available through the shed blood of Jesus.
This book remains a Christian classic, a tremendous discourse on "The Power of the Blood of Christ." The New Testament book of Hebrews states that, "Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin." Murray ably demonstrates that within that statement is included ALL the resulting benefits of forgiveness as well.
