3. Material and Financial Prosperity

It made it possible for us to prosper materially and financially.
Paul the apostle says in 2 Corinthians 8:9, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might be rich”.

This refers to material and financial prosperity right here. So the blood that was shed from His hands was to destroy the curse of poverty and release prosperity in your life. That means He has blessed the works of your hands, hallelujah!

Colossians 1:12, Acts 20:32.

4. Made it Possible for us to Receive the Holy Spirit.

After His resurrection Jesus appeared to His disciples and said, “And, behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high ” (Luke 24:49). He further said “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you shall be my witness in Jerusalem, Judaea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). This promise happened in Acts 2:1-4 and the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit. Then Peter speaking to the Jews said, “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call” (Acts 2:39).
We need the Holy Spirit to serve God and live in victory today, Amen!
Blessings, and Happy Easter!
