MEMORY VERSE: “Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.” – Leviticus 7:26

BIBLE PASSAGE: Hebrews 9:14-22 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 20 December 2020)

14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,

20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.

21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Having understood that life resides in the blood with biblical evidences (Lev.17:11) and that every spiritual covenant is sealed with the blood (Heb.9:18). Also, it should be noted that the blood of animals shed in the Old Testament could not cleanse the sins of man once and for all whereas the blood of Jesus shed as a covenant of redemption carries so much power to save man eternally. Covenants have the power of gathering, protecting and blessing people in all circumstances of life. On the other hand, any wrong use of the principle of covenant can bring about grave consequences. In this lesson, we shall attempt to discuss the instances of wrong approaches to blood covenant, the consequences and the way out.

LESSON OUTLINES

LESSON OUTLINE 1: WRONG APPROACHES TO BLOOD COVENANT

Teacher should allow the students to share their experiences of blood covenants they have or that people do enter into and guide the class through the discussion as follows:

  • The blood connects the physical and the spiritual world as well as the temporal and eternal world.
  • Blood covenant is usually made when the blood of two individuals mingle.
  • It could be done by cutting the palms of the individuals and then the shaking of hands to combine the blood.
  • It could also be that a few drops of blood from each person is mingled in a glass of wine and then drunk by both.
  • In either case, the blood is mixed, thus indicating that two lives were mixed.
  • Incision (piercing or cutting of the body for ritual, protection or religious purposes) is another way of initiating an individual into a blood covenant with demons (1 Kings.18:28).

Sometimes, an animal’s blood could be shed as representative of both individuals mingling their lives together. After all, “the life is in the blood. (Lev.17:11).

Regardless of the form it takes, the Bible forbids the:

  • Mixing or drinking of blood (Lev.7:26).
  • Cutting of the skin and incisions which leave permanent scars as a reminder of the covenant from that time on.

The Satanic realm fully understands the power of the blood covenant and this is why as soon as a person starts to progress in the satanic order, he is introduced to blood oaths which become progressively harsher and more prescriptive.

Hence, anyone involved in ungodly soul ties as “lovers”, illicit sexual relationships, occult blood sacrifices, suicides, homicides, abortion, etc., enters into a deal with Satan.

In this manner, people unite with demons either consciously or unconsciously (Gen.4:8-12). Every believer should avoid this kind of blood covenant at all cost.

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should discuss other means by which some people enter into blood covenant.

LESSON OUTLINE 2: CONSEQUENCES OF UNHOLY BLOOD COVENANTS

  1. The teacher should allow the students to discuss from experience some of the outcomes of the blood covenants stated in outline one and guide the class with the following points:
    Blood covenant among humans is scripturally forbidden.
    The Bible admonishes that our ‘yes’ should be ‘yes’ and our ‘no’ should be ‘no’ (Matt.5:34-37).
    If swearing is unscriptural (James 5:12), entering into a blood covenant is evil and can:
    Open doorways to demonic afflictions.
    Truncate the destiny of those involved and their descendants (2Sam.12:10-12).
  2. Sexual intercourse also constitutes a blood covenant.
    Since marriage is a life-long covenant, those who are yet to marry must prayerfully choose who to marry (1Cor.6:16; 2Cor.6:14).
    This sharing of blood creates a special spiritual connection between souls.
    Blood diseases can also be sexually transmitted from one partner to the other.
    Sexual intercourse among the unmarried is a terrible sin (1Cor. 6:18).
    Generational curses can be transmitted through this blood covenant (2 Sam.12:10-11).
    The satanic realm is quick to exact the death penalty on their blood covenant victims (John 10:10). Such sudden death could be painted as accidents, heart attack, unclassified sicknesses, etc (2 Cor. 2:11).
    There are many people that have entangled themselves through blood covenants. If you are one of them, the consequences may be deadly except you confess, renounce and cry unto God for total deliverance (John 8:32; Isa.49:24-26).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should mention other consequences of satanic blood covenants.

SUMMARY: There are terrible consequences for evil blood covenants.

CONCLUSION: Avoid entering into any form of illicit blood covenant with anyone. It is evil.

EVALUATION: Teachers should ask the students to mention consequences of unholy blood covenants?

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, let the blood of Jesus purge me from any covenant I might have entered into.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention five (5) practical things those involved in unholy blood covenants can do to break free.
