As we all know, we are at that time of year that has been set aside to recognize the ultimate sacrifice of the Lamb and the resurrection of our Savior. There was only one spotless Lamb whose blood was capable of redeeming sinful mankind. It is critical that everything that we do is covered by His blood. We know that Hebrews 9:22 teaches us that “without shedding of blood is no remission”. Isaiah 53:5 tells us that “he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed”. Revelation 12:11 lets us know that “they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Verse after verse of the Holy Cannon shines light on the workings and importance of the blood of Jesus Christ.
However, the shedding of His blood was not the conclusion of the miracle. Paul was addressing the belief of some in 1 Corinthians 15 that Christ had not risen from the dead. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:13-14 “But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” Paul continues and in verse 29 of the same chapter he asks “Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?”
We are blessed to know that God wrapped himself in flesh and became our sin in a humiliating crucifixion and shed His blood to become our redemption and allow us, sinners, to go free. Beyond the death and burial, there was a day of resurrection. We MUST take this news to a world that is hurting, hungry, looking, and needing Jesus. If they could only understand that what they are looking for is Him. We must let them know that regardless of all pasts and current situations, issues, hurts, pains, addictions, problems, and sin, the blood covers and heals!! Nothing is too great for the blood of Jesus Christ!! Our ministry, teaching, preaching, and witnessing is not in vain!! For He has risen!! Because He lives we can……….
Thankful for the risen Savior,

I grew up riding a horse before I could even walk. A real cowboy in every sense of the word. Our family ran six brands and over 1500 head of cattle from the time I was born until the late 80’s. I have roped more calves, horses, and yes even people (my sisters) than I can remember. My dad is missing two fingers on his right hand due missing a dally and the rope took them right off! He now needs custom gloves!! I have been thrown, kicked, and stomped enough to now be a very wise fella! I have had several near misses myself when it comes to roping and can tell you from experience that a rope burn will last for a few days. I have had many ropes fail in my lifetime and have to thank the Lord that I have not been seriously injured or dead!
Here in a few months, ASR will be taking part in the Bind the Strongman prayer meeting in Kentucky. As we begin to prepare to wage spiritual warfare, I believe it is a good thing to understand the situation that we find ourselves in. I am so thankful that the book tells us that what we bind here will be bound in Heaven and what we loose here on earth will be bound in Heaven as well! What a problem it would be to have to rely on natural rope to take care of our spiritual needs and problems! Nothing here on earth that is physical can be relied on to sufficiently work in our spiritual lives. It takes the power of an unseen hand to break our chains of bondage! It takes the spoken name of Jesus Christ to encounter the creative power of God himself! When we bind our addictions, personalities, issues, needs, wants, and whatever else that we need to get under control using the only Name under heaven that can save our souls, we can rest assured that the bound will stay bound and the loosed will stay loosed!!
I remember a day many years ago that I, Dad, and Grandpa were bringing a herd of cattle through the woods to the pens where we would separate the herd and take the smaller calves to the sale barn to sell them. In the middle of a thicket of vines and briars, my trusty steed got caught up in the vines and decided to rear up and when he did, I fell out of the saddle and hit the ground on my back which knocked all the breath out of me. I could not even speak as I watch the saddle horn coming my way and I had no way to move out of the way. I can remember trying to say Jesus but to no avail. I screamed it in my mind and as the horse fell towards me, something caused the horse to turn and fall directly beside me! I am so glad that even when we can’t speak his name, we can think his name! His name works when we cannot! I only have to think his name for it to be effective! I cannot wait to be able to use the name of Jesus to bind some things and loose some things at Bind the Strongman!! Can you??
Maybe my love of motorcycles come from my love of riding horses. I don’t know. I can tell you this however, that the ministry of ASR needs the tools used to bind and loose at every rally, church service, chapter meeting, and weekend ride. You never know who you are going to run into that needs someone who knows how to use the name of Jesus and can reach the throne room at a moment’s notice. I pray that you guys and gals keep your “horses” well cared for and your “rope” ready to use!! Saddle up and let’s reach a lost and dying world with his Name!!
