Napoleon with his officers around him spread a large map of world on a table, put his finger on a kingdom coloured in red, said ‘miseurs if it were not for that Red spot I could conquer the world’. (The Red, spot British Isles). In the same way Satan could spread a map of the universe before his forces, put his finger on a spot red with the blood of Jesus and say ‘If it were not for that red spot I could conquer the world’.  If it wasn’t for the blood of Jesus, Satan could conquer the world, hold people captive to sin, death and hell

 

Protection

 Exodus 12:23

 

 For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you. 

 

Judgment had been proclaimed that every first born would be slain. Only way to avoid judgment was to sprinkle blood on doorposts + lintels of homes. God said in verse 13 ‘When I see the blood I will pass over you. Judgment was avoided. Wages of sin is death but if we avail ourselves of the blood of Jesus we can be spared God’s judgment of hell, and go to heaven.

We can also enjoy God’s protection in all areas of our lives, our homes, families, finances, if we diligently apply the blood. 

Verse 23 says that because of the blood God will not allow the destroyer to enter your home.

 Every day I cover my family, property, finances, and health, with the blood of Jesus, believing for his protection in all areas. At times I say Satan you cannot cross the bloodline.


Ephesians 1:7

In him we have redemption through his blood. 

 

Redeemed = deliverance from Satan’s dominion in our lives. We are no longer under Satan’s rule because of the blood.

A wife prayed often for her drunken husband. One night coming home very drunk, saw a demon that said you are mine. He sobered up quickly, and terrified began to run home. The demon ran beside him. When they got to the gate of his house the demon said ‘I can’t go in there’. The man said ‘why not?’ The demon replied, ‘your wife, she’s prayed the blood over this house, I cannot go in’. The demon remained at gate. The man told his wife, and said I want to be saved.

A pastor’s family faced bombing during WWII in England but slept peacefully through it. Every night before going to sleep they would cover themselves, home, and children with the blood of Jesus. They would speak of the blood as the best air raid shelter in world. One night 13 bombs landed within ¾ mile radius of their home.  They were safe, with only minor damage to their home. 


Cleansing

1 John 1:9

 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 

Not only can blood forgive us our sins, it can also cleanses us from sin. We need to keep short accounts with God.  As soon as we sin, blow it, angry, disobey, go immediately to the Lord, confess and he will forgive and cleanse you. Keeping unbroken fellowship with God is very important, otherwise we give Satan a foothold to attack us.


Hebrews 9:14

how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

 

The blood can help cleanse us from the stain of sin in our lives.  It can purge our minds. The Blood has cleansing power.  Ask God not only to forgive but also to cleanse you from stain, damage of sin.

Apply the blood through prayer to cleanse a home or a room.  A room may have a bad feeling about it, may smell, things have happened in the place. Hotel rooms I stay in at times I plead the blood, to cleanse it of any evil.

Bruce Hills tells story of how when he was a youth pastor a lady in his church brought Maria to see him. She was heavily into occult and said she could call up evil powers and read minds. But she was having terrible nightmares and so came for help. Bruce began to talk about Jesus, gifts of H Sp and how the occult was a counterfeit to true power of God. Maria suddenly looked startled and sat upright. Bruce said what’s wrong. Said I see blood like a waterfall flowing all over you. With authority Bruce told her, you think you can call up evil spirits and read minds but you have no authority over me. I am covered by blood of Jesus. Maria gave her life to Jesus. Bruce said God taught him the truth of 1

John 1:7

if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

The word “cleanses” is the continuous tense which means the blood keeps cleansing us like the waterfall Maria saw.

Martin Luther seriously ill, the devil appeared to him smiling and unrolled a big scroll and listed Luther’s sins one by one.  Luther read the list with his heart sinking, it was all true. Suddenly it flashed into Luther’s mind one thing not written there.  He said to Satan these are all true, but one thing you have forgotten, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. Immediately the devil disappeared, he cannot stand before the blood of Jesus.

How to apply the blood of Jesus

The pleading of the blood was an accepted revelation of the Holy Spirit in the early days of the Pentecostal outpouring. But like many revelations it has been lost, as man organized the church and made it more attractive. The consequences of minimising the blood of Jesus are disastrous. We need to know how to use the blood. Satan wants to keep us ignorant so he can work havoc in our lives.

3 steps:

1. We must know what the Bible says about the power of the blood. This series of 3 messages are very important.

2. Have faith in the power of the blood.  It’s one thing to hear about it, but we need to believe it.

3. Apply the blood.  Old Testament teaches – The Blood was applied by sprinkling

New Testament teaches – The Blood is applied by speaking, declaring, prayer.

When Satan accuses and condemns you, and says God can’t bless you; answer your prayers or your too ungodly. What do you do? Point Satan to the Blood of Jesus.  Yes Satan, I have sinned, failed, but through the Blood of Jesus I have been forgiven, made righteous in God’s eyes. I can expect his favour, blessing, and answers to prayer not because of who I am but because of the Blood.  I stand before God without sin and am worthy. Satan I command you to flee. I plead the Blood; I am covered in the Blood of Jesus. When we point Satan to the Blood there is nothing he can do.

Pray, I plead Blood of Jesus; I cover myself, my family, and my finances in the Blood.

If we want to win victory after victory, defeat the enemy, bring down ruling spirits and powers of darkness we need to honor the Blood, speak the Blood, plead the Blood, preach the power of the Blood. Every demon trembles and all hell shakes when the Blood is proclaimed with faith. If the Blood can help cleanse individuals, maybe it can do the same to a church, even cleanse a nation. Remove the infiltration of darkness, drive out the enemy and restore the presence and power of God in the land. If every Christian would plead the Blood of Jesus every day the results would be catastrophic to Satan’s kingdom and a great victory would be felt in the church and the nation. There's power in blood.
