THE blood of Jesus redeems The Church. The congregation that is redeemed by the blood is called the CHURCH. So, the blood of Jesus covers us.

Jesus has prayed for us His body. So, it is very dangerous to rebel, divide, wreak havoc or do wrong to the Church because Christ is the HEAD of the Church.

As Saul travelled to Damascus, pursuing Christians, he was confronted by the risen Christ and brought face to face with the truth of the Good News. Sometimes, God breaks into a life in a spectacular manner, and sometimes conversion is a quiet experience.

“Meanwhile, Saul was uttering threats with every breath. He was eager to destroy the Lord’s followers, so he went to the high priest. He requested letters addressed to the synagogues in Damascus, asking their cooperation in the arrest of any followers of the Way he found there. He wanted to bring them—both men and women—back to Jerusalem in chains. As he was nearing Damascus on this mission, a brilliant light from heaven suddenly beamed down upon him! He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting me?” “Who are you, sir?” Saul asked”- Acts 9:1-5.

So, Jesus Christ has prayed for us. We are on the Rock. All the Churches of the living God are founded on the Rock. No wave or storm can destroy the Church. Blessing is upon the Church because Christ Jesus has become poor in order that we may be rich.
“I love all who love me. Those who search for me will surely find me. Unending riches, honour, wealth, and justice are mine to distribute. My gifts are better than the purest gold, my wages better than sterling silver! I walk in righteousness, in paths of justice.  Those who love me inherit wealth, for I fill their treasuries”- Proverbs 8:17-21.

Salvation, redemption miracles, signs and wonders are the identity of the Church of Christ. “When Jesus went back across to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around Him on the shore. A leader of the local synagogue, whose name was Jairus, came and fell down before Him, pleading with Him to heal his little daughter. “She is about to die,” he said in desperation. “Please come and place your hands on her; heal her so she can live”- Mark 5:21-23

“And then He told them, “Go into the entire world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Anyone who believes and is baptised will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them…”- Mark 16:15-18.

Jesus has prayed for us and He has commanded that we must be in Unity.

His great desire for His disciples was that they would become one.
