I have been studying on the importance of pleading the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to overcome the enemy, to protect ourselves and our families and for the protection of our property and possessions. I want to share some of that knowledge with you for we all need protection against satan and his demons.
There is so much power in the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Billye Brim in her book The Blood and The Glory, writes: “The last days are upon us and the world is becoming increasingly dangerous. However, protection for you and your family during this time is possible. By pleading the Blood of Jesus over your property, possessions, and family, you can put worry to rest. For many these last days can be full of dread, fear, and insecurity. For the church they will be our best ever! Don’t let terror defeat you.”
The devil wants to rob us of our redemptive rights by placing curses of poverty, sickness and death upon our lives. BUT, we have been redeemed (rescued) from the curse of the law through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 12:11 tells us, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Satan and his demons are out to destroy us but we can defend ourselves, our families and our possessions with the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We have victory over evil because Jesus shed His blood on the cross. Remember, the devil was defeated at the cross. Luke 10:19 tells us “…I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy…” Use that authority; use the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ against the enemy.
W.B. Young in his tract Honor the Blood writes: “There must be a personal application of the blood of Christ in order to stem the tide of spiritual destruction in the life of the child of God… It is a personal matter. 'The blood shall be to you for a token. When I see the blood, I will pass over you.' (Exodus 12:13). The blood, applied by sprinkling, was all that was required for peace of mind and rest of heart. It took away all fear of the destroying angel. It was not mere interest in the blood, nor belief in its power; nor appreciation of its worth that availed. It was the applied blood that counted. Truth was translated into action. So it is with the blood of the Lord Jesus. It is effective against satanic floods when applied by faith. A proper application of His blood to a given situation, if the believer is operating from a cleansed position, always brings deliverance. It never fails…”
“But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” Through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham, so that we who are believers might receive the promised Holy Spirit through faith.” (Galatians 3:13-14 NLT)
So how do you apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to your situation? By faith. In prayer and in faith you can plead the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ over you and your family, your home, (demonic attacks against people in their homes have been completely stopped by applying the Blood of Jesus throughout the home - doors, windows, etc.). You can draw a blood line of protection around your property, your vehicles, your children’s schools, and your workplace with the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember, the devil cannot penetrate the blood line!
The following is an amazing devotional on the Blood of Jesus Christ by Bob Gass.
Thank God For The Blood
"'...you were redeemed...with the precious blood of Christ...'" 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV
The story of redemption begins in Eden with God shedding the blood of a lamb to cover Adam's and Eve's sin, and ends in heaven with a multi-national choir singing, '...You...have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every...nation.' (Revelation 5:9 NKJV) The blood of Jesus Christ represents two things:
(1) The cost of your sin. Rolled on to Christ's shoulders was the weight of your every misdeed from the cradle to the grave. Next time you're tempted to violate God's Word and do your own thing, bear that in mind!
(2) The cure for your sin. Your salvation wasn't a joint effort. You didn't contribute a penny because you were spiritually bankrupt. '...you were redeemed [bought out of slavery and set free]...with the precious blood of Christ...' (1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV)
The preaching of the blood will offend those with sins to hide, a moralistic ego to protect, or a gospel that offers salvation through good works and social evolution. The blood of Jesus not only saves the repentant but also condemns the defiant, for '...without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.' (Hebrews 9:22 NIV) Plagues and apocalyptic hail could not release God's people from the iron grip of Pharaoh. What did? The blood. Nothing but the blood! And the blood has never lost its power. It can (a) heal your painful memories (b) cleanse and set you free from the sin you dare not speak of (c) put a canopy of protection over you, and (d) draw a line in the sand over which the enemy dare not step. Today, thank God for the blood!
You may want to speak out the following declarations over you and your family.
Thank you, Father for the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you that there is power in the blood, there is salvation in the blood and there is protection in the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ from the deception of satan and his demons.
I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
All my sins are forgiven through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am sanctified, made holy and set apart to God through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.
Redeemed and cleansed through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, satan has no place in me and no power over me.
I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my eyes, so that I might see into the Spirit realm clearly and with clarity.
Father, I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my eyes, to cleanse them of any defilement, wickedness, or garbage I have watched that is not of You.
I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my ears; to cleanse my ears of any defilement, wickedness, garbage, gossip or slander that I have listened to, so that I might hear clearly what the Lord is saying to me.
I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my lips and to my tongue, so that You, Lord, will be able to cleanse me of those things that I have spoken that really haven’t been of You at all.
Father, I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my heart and my mind. Since my heart is the creation center of the soul that produces all the emotions and thoughts, I ask You, Lord, to put the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ on my heart, my thoughts, my emotions and cleanse my mind so that I may serve You.
Father, I apply the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to my feet. Cleanse me from the corruption of this world.
Father, cleanse me of those places in which I have walked that really haven’t been ordered of You.
Lord, I receive the words of the Bible that say “The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord.”
I will have holy steps, walking on that highway of holiness.
Praise you Lord, and I ask that you cleanse me from the top of my head to the soles of my feet with the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I also recommend reading out loud Psalm 91. I substitute “you or your” with “I, me, and my,” as follows:
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the LORD:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue me from every trap
and protect me from deadly disease.
He will cover me with his feathers.
He will shelter me with his wings.
His faithful promises are my armor and protection.
I will not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
I will not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at my side,
though ten thousand are dying around me,
these evils will not touch me.
Just open my eyes,
and I will see how the wicked are punished.
If I make the LORD my refuge,
if I make the Most High my shelter,
no evil will conquer me;
no plague will come near my home.
For he will order his angels
to protect me wherever I go.
They will hold me up with their hands
so I won’t even hurt my foot on a stone.
I will trample upon lions and cobras;
I will crush fierce lions and serpents under my feet!
The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.” (NLT)
