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. It is one of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. It is a part of your inheritance as His child.
Most in the 21st century know religion. It is possible 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 defeated 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 dark atmosphere that will defeat 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 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 given us are many times invisible. You cannot reason it out. I know people who don't believe in something if they can’t touch it or see it. Well then, you will not embrace this for it is by faith.
I read a lengthy article in a local paper a few years ago about someone who would go to houses and actually “smudge” the inside walls with some substance that supposedly protected the people living there from evil spirits. That, my friends, is a bunch of crap. The only thing that can protect you from evil and wicked spirits, from Satan himself, is the Blood of the Lamb of the Cross. Period. 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 fought 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 destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6), and we don’t even know it.
