The Role of the Blood at the Throne of Grace, Part 3
Since our knowledge of the blood of Christ is lacking, so is our ability to access and experience the blessings that the blood has purchased for us, namely, our redemption. We have not only been redeemed from something, we have also been redeemed to something. We know what we’ve been redeemed from: the power of sin, from the law of sin and death, from the domain of darkness—even though we are not always walking in the fullness of that redemption. We have not just been redeemed from something, but also to something. Otherwise, it would have left a vacuum.
When God formed man from the dust of the earth, man was lifeless. In order for life to enter into man, God had to do something. God placed His own life force inside of man, and man became a living soul. We see this in Leviticus 17:14. So, using Genesis 2:7 and Leviticus 17:14, we find that the life force was located in man’s blood, and that it was pure life. We see it in the name of Adam. There is much more to this. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on November 29, 2020.
Hebrews 4:16 NKJV
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Leviticus 17:11, 14
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’ …for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, ‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.’

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
