Mentos & Diet Coke

18 December 2020

And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…. Revelation 12:11

 

Have you ever seen the Diet Coke and Mentos experiment that is all over the Internet? Kids love watching (and doing) this fun and easy science experiment by combining Diet Coke and Mentos to create a spectacular soda explosion.

 

At first, you might think that there is some ingredient in a Mentos candy that causes a chemical reaction with the soda pop. But the amazing eruption that takes place when Mentos are dropped into Diet Coke is not a chemical reaction at all! Instead, it is a physical reaction. That means that all of the pieces of the reaction are there, but that they are simply rearranged and activated when placed together.

 

 

Just like when the Mentos & Diet Coke come together, Revelation 12:11 mentions two ingredients that God has given us.  A physical reaction takes place in our lives when they come together!

 

1) Blood of the Lamb  + 2) Word of our testimony = We OVERCOME Satan!

 

Ingredient One: The Blood of The Lamb is a powerful ingredient and was given to each of us when Jesus died on the cross. Jesus shed His blood on the cross and accomplished more than redemption and remission of sins. The blood of Jesus literally reversed every part of the curse. That includes sickness, disease, poverty, lack, depression, strife, addiction or any type of bondage to sin. It’s done. Finished. Over. History. Those things have no legal right to be in your life any longer. The Blood ingredient brings all the power, victory, and miracles of God into the everyday life of the believer, but it needs the second ingredient to overcome Satan. 

 

Ingredient Two: The Word of our Testimony is the second ingredient to our success. This is the words that we are to openly declare or proof of our faith (The Word of God).  These are the words that must proceed from our hearts and out of our mouths. In order for you to overcome, every benefit and blessing that Jesus won for us must be acknowledged and declared as proof of our faith in order to successfully overcome the enemy.  

 

Explosion: Mixing our testimony of faith with the blood of Jesus is like mixing Mentos and Diet Coke. There will always be a successful physical reaction when these two ingredients are mixed together!  

 

There is tremendous power in the blood of Jesus when it is activated by adding your testimony to it. Your testimony, plus the declaration of the blood of Jesus puts the devil on the run!

 

God has already given us both ingredients: the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our Testimony.  This means that we have all of the ingredients for us to overcome Satan! The blood of Jesus when mixed with our testimony of faith always overcomes the enemy.
