Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Pleading the Blood of Christ….what a funny thing this is to some people. But oh, what a powerful weapon. This is one of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. It is a part of your inheritance as His child.
Most of us in the 21st century have been raised on religion. We have become so intelligent and so self-righteous that we think that “Pleading the Blood” is something funky and Hoodoo Voodoo. The above scripture clearly states that they overcame him. Well, who are they? They are you and me. Who did they overcome? Satan. Whose blood overcame Satan? The blood of the Lamb of the Cross. And the word of their testimony? Those are the words that you speak out into the unseen that will overcome Satan. Whether you admit it or not, we are in a spiritual battle against the devil. From what I have witnessed, he is winning.
Every day in prayer time, I "Plead the Blood of Christ" over my home, family and others the Lord places on my heart to protect. I speak it out loud into the atmosphere to let Satan know I mean business and that he has no authority, no legal right to anything that is covered by the Blood of Christ. We have to believe the tools He has given us are sometimes invisible. You cannot reason it out. I know people who won't believe if they cannot touch or see it….well then, you will not embrace this. It is by faith.
I read an extensive article in a local paper a few years ago about someone who would go to houses and actually “smudge” the inside of them with some substance that supposedly protected the people living there from evil spirits. The only thing that can protect you from evil and wicked spirits, from Satan himself, is the Blood of the Lamb of the Cross. Satan and his workers are deceiving you if you think otherwise.
We, as God’s children, are living, on the whole, in fear, doubt and worry. I know, for I have been raised on this battlefield so I could turn around and tell you that you do not have to settle for what is coming at you. We are being destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6) and we don’t even know it.
If any area in your life is defeated begin anew and start to help yourself by “Pleading the Blood.” Circumstances will change, you will change, and the devil’s reign in your life will be overcome.
