Through the Blood of Jesus


Several years ago, while walking through an airport, Trina bought me the book, The Power of the Blood of Christ.  I thought, "Why do I need that book? I've been raised in church and know all about that topic."  After reading it, I realized how much I needed to learn. Andrew Murray said, "Faith is largely dependent on knowledge. If knowledge of what the blood can accomplish is inaccurate, then faith expects little, and the more powerful effects of the blood are limited. Feeble ideas of its power prevent the deeper and more perfect manifestations of its effects." Regardless of your knowledge of the Word, it is possible to grow in revelation knowledge and faith in the blood of Jesus.

To illustrate the power of the blood of Jesus, we want to share our grandson Dylan's experience. At three years old, he was diagnosed with stage four leukemia and underwent chemotherapy for almost two years. Our hearts fell when he was finishing his last few treatments and tests revealed the cancer cells had returned.  The doctors told us a bone marrow transplant was necessary to save his life.  While in a meeting with the doctor who was overseeing Dylan's transplant, I asked why, after being told the leukemia was in remission, it came back. Dr. Yu explained that there are two kinds of remission. The first kind is when the cancer is no longer active in the blood. The second kind is called "molecular remission,” which means there is no evidence of cancer cells at the molecular level.   

Preparations were made for the transplant and the search for a donor began. Dylan's brother, Gavin was chosen to be the donor. For three days, Gavin's life-saving blood was drawn. Dylan underwent strong chemotherapy and intense radiation to destroy his diseased bone marrow. This treatment prepared Dylan's body to receive his brother's healthy stem cells.  Dr. Yu told Dylan, "We are getting ready to say goodbye to you! You're going to be a new person after this!" The first six hours following the graft were critical. We imagined that when Dylan received Gavin's stem cells, his body would welcome the new cells. Dylan stayed in strict quarantine for several weeks.  One day the doctor announced with a big smile, "The new cells are multiplying! The graft is growing!" Dylan's bone marrow eventually became one-hundred percent Gavin's.  A bone marrow transplant can change the recipient’s hair, eyes, skin and even their personality.  Dylan’s DNA now matched Gavin’s.  So if Gavin was convicted of a crime, Dylan could be convicted also because they have the same DNA.  Dylan has been twinned to Gavin. 


If medical science can do that physically, what can God do spiritually?  First of all, imagine who your donor is.  Your donor is the Lord Jesus Christ who carries the blood of the New Covenant. Just as the chemotherapy could not remove leukemia in Dylan's blood, the Old Testament sacrifices could not perfect us or remove our sin consciousness (Hebrews 10:1-4). The goal of a bone marrow transplant is absolute remission of cancer, which means there are zero cancer cells in any molecules of the body. Spiritually, we now have absolute remission of sin through Jesus’ blood.  The term remission in Christ’s work of redemption means cancellation of penalty and removal of guilt. Hebrews 10:18 (AMPC) says, “Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these sins…there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin." Colossians 1:22 (TLB) says, “ as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are standing there before him with nothing left against you—nothing left that he could even chide you for.”

Through the blood of Jesus, sin has now gone into one-hundred percent remission. The Old Testament sacrifices produced the forgiveness of sin. In the New Testament, the blood of Jesus has the power to not only remove sin from the mind of God, but also to remove sin and sin consciousness from the memory of the believer. In the Old Testament, God said, "I will not remember your sin." Now, because of the blood of Jesus, God says, "Neither will you remember your sin." Believers now can be free from shame and have a revelation of the reality of their righteousness in Christ.


Just as Gavin's blood brought molecular remission in his brother's body, Jesus' perfect blood brings us absolute remission of sin when we receive it by faith. I imagine God saying, "I'm saying goodbye to the old sinful you!" There was a grafting process where God's divine nature completely recreated your spirit.  Second Corinthians 5:17 (AMPC) says, “Therefore, if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah), he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come.” Say goodbye to the old you! Everything is new! The moment the blood of Jesus is applied, you can say goodbye to Satan's dominion.

Today, God’s power is released at the intersection where faith and the blood of Jesus meet.  God lives in constant view of the blood of Christ, and we must too. Faith in the blood of Jesus gives overcoming power.   

This month we want to offer you our brand-new book, “In Christ: This Changes Everything.” We believe this book will strengthen your faith and help you take your place in Christ.  There are over 130 scriptures in the Bible that use the key words In Christ, In Him, and In Whom.  Out of those 130, there are over 30 keys scriptures that tell us who we are and what we have in Christ.  Along with practical teaching, this book is a collection of over 30 scriptures that are listed in several translations to help give you further light and revelation on your identity.  For your offering of any amount this month we will send you this brand-new book (just check the box on the order form). 

Trina and I want to thank you for your partnership with us.  Your giving is helping us distribute the Word of God to many people through the daily television, all the social media outlets, and the books that are being distributed in many countries.  The Word is growing and multiplying!!  We declare this blessing to all our partners, “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:19. 

In Christ,
Mark and Trina

Revolutionary Revelation

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead…. Ephesians 1:17-20

The prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 is powerful and one we encourage you to read daily. This prayer for revelation knowledge affects the eyes of your heart. It changes the way you see everything because the Holy Spirit opens the door to understanding the Word of God and the realm of the Spirit. The very moment light or revelation knowledge comes, faith is present. Revelation knowledge will always capture your imagination.

Some of the most prevalent crimes in today's society involve breaking into computer systems. This is known as "hacking." However, God's Kingdom system of revelation knowledge can never be hacked. Once you are born again, you are granted access into the Spirit realm where you can download divine secrets. Regarding Kingdom secrets Jesus said in Luke 10:21, "Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." Man does not discover God. He reveals Himself. We know God through revelation knowledge.

Paul was not at a disadvantage because he never personally met Jesus in His earthly ministry. However, he understood revelation knowledge and knew the thoughts of Jesus better than the disciples. In the same way, through revelation knowledge, you can know Him better today than those who walked with Him on the earth. Revelation knowledge takes you past the historical, geographical, and theological understanding of God and brings you into the inspirational. All scripture is God-breathed and inspired by God. It is personal and will reveal your true identity and purpose.

For example, when Jesus went to the temple, He found the place in Isaiah 61, where it was written about Him and said, "This is me! Today this scripture is talking about me." John the Baptist found himself in Isaiah 40 through revelation knowledge. When Jesus asked Peter who He was, Peter had a flash of revelation and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Then Jesus told Peter that flesh and blood had not revealed it unto him, but His Father. At that moment, Peter got his identity and calling from Jesus: "Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it," (Matthew 16:17-18).

As Peter found his identity from Jesus, you can also find yourself in the Word today. He'll talk to you right there in your house. You used to read the Bible to go to sleep. Now you read it, and you can't go to sleep! "He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned," (Isaiah 50:4). The Holy Spirit takes you to the "video department" of the Word. He speaks to you, giving you dreams and visions, affecting your eyes, and giving you a revelation that captures your imagination. It comes alive, just like He wrote it 3,000 years ago for you today.

Living by faith is living by revelation knowledge. Every advance in faith is an advance in revelation knowledge. Revelation knowledge will change your identity like it did for Gideon (Judges 6). God calls you things there's no evidence that they exist. Yet, when they're real on the inside, nothing in the world can stop them from showing up on the outside. The power of His Word is all you need.

The Word is progressive, continuous, and eternal. The Holy Spirit unlocks your understanding and brings great joy. Information alone puffs you up, but revelation from God brings radical change and results. You will experience brand new revelation as you ask for the three things God wants us to know in the Ephesians 1 prayer: His calling, His inheritance, and His power.

Jesus grew in wisdom and knowledge by studying the scriptures (Luke 2). At age twelve, His parents found Him in the temple, wiser than the doctors of the law. It is said that the Holy Spirit inspired David to write the wisdom found in Proverbs. His son, Solomon, was guided by it to live successfully. Some scholars say that what was written in the Proverbs was wisdom from God, the Father, for His Son, Jesus, to have while He was on the earth. Like Christ, we must find ourselves in the scriptures and grow in revelation knowledge.

"According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust," (2 Peter 1:3-4). This is the way we can know our calling, live victoriously, and reach our destiny through the spirit of wisdom and revelation. Any area you struggle in is an area you have not received the Word correctly. The devil is just as afraid of the message of the Gospel of Jesus, as he is of the events of the death, burial, and resurrection.


One of our favorite books over the years is "Revolutionary Revelation." For your offering of any amount, we will send you this book. We also want to encourage you to download the MHM app so you can listen to these messages anytime!

We want to personally invite you to our first meeting of 2024 at our new conference center, January 9 – 11, 2024. We will be studying the Spirit of Faith – Breaking Barriers. We believe God wants to take you to new levels of revelation knowledge in 2024. We would love to have you attend these meetings.

Your partnership in prayer and giving enables this liberating message to transform more lives around the world. We declare to you, our partners that: "My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!"

In Christ,
Mark and Trina
