“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.” Hebrews 9:22
The blood of Jesus is a powerful weapon against the enemy, and it is something he does not want believers to learn how to appropriate in their lives or to learn about. What is it about the precious blood of Christ that is so powerful? What about it causes the kingdom of darkness to tremble in terror? It is through the blood of Jesus that our sins have been washed away and we are placed in right standing with the Father. It is through the blood of Jesus that we have freedom to live and authority to trample over the enemy.
Whenever you hear believers say, “I plead the blood of Jesus!” What does that mean? To “plead” is a legal term (see 1 Samuel 24:15 and Psalms 43:1). If you were to imagine yourself in a court room and the evidence against you were mounting high, but while the Accuser, which is Satan, is making his case and is saying what you deserve because of your sin, you find the courage to say, “No, I plead the blood of Jesus!” It would change everything! Why? Because it is through the blood of Jesus that we have been set free from sin, completely forgiven and washed. Through the blood of Jesus, we are made holy as if we never sinned a day in our lives. Through His precious blood, we are free to be free and stay free, and are given power to walk in authority over the enemy!
The precious blood of Jesus has not lost its power and it never will!
Prayer: Thank you Father for the blood of Jesus! I choose to plead of Jesus right now over my life, over my family and friends! Through the precious of Jesus I am forgiven and no longer hiding in shame, guilt or condemnation. The same precious blood that redeemed me and set me free, also empowers me to live and to go and win others to you LORD. It protects me and gives me authority and boldness when dealing with the enemy. Thank you LORD! You are deepening my understanding and knowledge of the blood of Jesus and what it means. Help me to stay reminded of it’s power and to see my life and everything around me through the lens of the precious blood of Jesus! In Jesus name, Amen.
