Find Out Why We Have Power And Authority Through The Shed Blood Of Jesus Christ The Living Breathing WORD Of God.

We are told in First John 5:8 that the blood is a witness: "And there are three that bear witness in the earth, the Spirit and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one." A witness is expected to speak, and Hebrews 12:22-24 tells us that the blood does speak and that it speaks better things than Abel’s blood: "But ye are come…to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel."

A witness is taken to the place of trial. Colossians 1:12 tells us that God "hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance" in Christ. If Satan disputes this and seeks to keep us out of any part of this great inheritance, the blood of Jesus speaks for us and declares that Jesus bought the inheritance for us on the Cross and that it is all ours.

The next verse says that God "hath delivered us from the power of darkness" (Col. 1:13). If Satan tries to use his power over our spirit, soul or body, the blood speaks for us that Jesus, on the Cross, fully delivered us from all the power of the enemy, so that Satan now has no power to put sin, sickness, pain or disease upon us. All his power over us was broken by Jesus on the Cross, and we are free and can "stand fast" in the "liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free" (Gal. 5:1).

Christ Has Redeemed Us from the Curse

Colossians 1:13 says that God "hath translated us" spirit, soul and body into the kingdom of His dear Son where only Jesus rules. Colossians 1:14 says, "We have redemption through His blood…." The blood of Jesus testifies that He set us free from all the curse when He was made a curse for us on the Cross, and because He bore the curse in full, we are redeemed from its power and penalty (Gal. 3:13). The devil has no power to hold or keep any of the curse upon us.

The blood testifies that because Jesus was my Substitute, and was accepted in my place, Satan has no more claim upon me. Like the usurper and deceiver that he is, the devil pretends to have a claim on me and power over me, but the blood witnesses that I am made free, and that Satan cannot hold any part of the curse upon me – unless I consent to it. God forbids me to do this when He says, "neither give place to the devil" (Eph. 4:27) and "resist the devil, and he will flee" (Jas. 4:7).

It is the blood of the new covenant, the pledge that we are to have all that is promised in it. If Satan tries to keep us out of a promise of God, the blood testifies that Jesus bought the inheritance promised, and His precious blood was the price paid (Mark 14:24).

He who purchased has a right to give, and Second Peter 1:3 says, He "hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness." This includes all we can ever need for spirit, soul or body, and the blood will witness to God that they are given. The assurance is found in the new covenant – that the blood of Jesus has purchased all for us.

If Satan tells us that we are unworthy to receive the things of God, the blood witnesses that Jesus took our sins away, bore them in His own body on the tree; that He put away sin by the offering up of Himself; that He crucified our old man, our fallen, perverted, sinful nature, inherited from Adam; forgave our sins, blotted them out, and said He would remember them no more; for Christ has been made unto us the righteousness of God, and it is perfect and everlasting righteousness (Isa. 44:22; Jer. 31:34; 1 Cor. 1:30).

A New Creation

When we are born again we become a new creation in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). The blood is a witness that we are in Christ and that we are "complete in Him" (Col. 2:10), and that there is "no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit" (Rom. 8:1).

Do we pray and seem to get no hearing from God? Again the blood is the witness. It is the blood of the everlasting covenant. Since God "spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" (Rom. 8:32).

The shed blood of God’s own Son is proof that He has accomplished the first, and is a sure witness that He will do all other things for those He has redeemed with His own precious blood. It is our Redeemer’s pledge. "His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue" (2 Pet. 1:3).

The Blood of Jesus Witnesses to Deliverance from the Penalty and Power of Sin

It is so precious to meet the conditions of His Word, and then by an unwavering faith, steadfastly hold to the witness of the precious, shed blood of Christ. God worked in power and demonstration when the blood of Abel cried unto Him from the ground – how much more powerfully will God work, when, from the Cross, the blood of His own Son speaks better things for us? (Gen. 4:10; Heb. 12:24).

How the power of temptation is destroyed; how sin, with all its fetters, is broken, and evil appetites and passions are overcome; how the Presence of God and spiritual verities all become real, as – resolutely and steadfastly, in the name of Jesus, and through the power of His shed blood, and on the authority of His Word – we resist Satan wherever we find him at work in spirit, soul or body or in our home or business affairs.

The precious blood of Jesus is God’s remedy for the sin, sickness and sorrow inflicted by Satan. God’s remedy cannot fail! It does what God says it does, it overcomes Satan. To overcome Satan means to take away his power so he cannot hurt or harm us. "Behold, I give unto you power...over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you" (Luke 10:19), is the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Read also Revelation 12:9-11.)

My Blood Is Shed for You!

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen" (Heb. 13:20-21).

The blood that flowed from Christ’s wounds is a token between God and His Beloved Son of a covenant that can never end. The Son of God has Himself fulfilled every condition of this everlasting covenant so there can be no failure. When God raised Christ from the dead, and set Him on the throne, far above all principality and power (Eph. 1:15-23) – this act declared that the covenant had been fulfilled by our Redeemer, and had been accepted of God, the Father. God is the unchanging One, and what He "doeth, it shall be for ever" (Eccl. 3:14).

Abel’s blood cried for vengeance. Our Redeemer’s blood cries for our full redemption. He "was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8). When a thing is destroyed, you cannot find a trace of it.

Redeemed by the Blood!
How Far and Wide that Reaches!

"Wilt thou be made whole?" (John 5:6). The conditions for this have been met and were all fulfilled when Christ cried from the Cross, "It is finished" (John 19:30). Now it is a matter of our will. "Wilt thou?" "What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?" (Mark 10:51) – is still the Master’s question to us.

Is there sin, fear, doubt, wavering, unbelief, timidity, sensitiveness, half-heartedness, instability, interest in things of time and the world? To be redeemed means to be delivered from all of these things. The word "redeem" means to be "bought back" at a price, and this is what our Kinsman-Redeemer did at the price of His own life. "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold...but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot" (1 Pet. 1:18-19).

If the fixed purpose of our heart is to live only for God, and to ever obey Him in all things, the blood will cry to God for redemption – full deliverance from evil! God will never fail to listen to the cry of the blood of His Only Begotten Son – and will set us free.

Have you ever wondered what it means to plead the blood of Jesus? You can learn to take the power of the blood and apply it to any situation! Here’s how.

The attacks of the enemy can often seem relentless. He comes to attack our money, our homes, our children, our health and even our morality through temptation. But here’s something he doesn’t want you to know—he has no legal right to any part of your life.

When Jesus shed His blood on the cross, He accomplished more than Redemption and remission of sins. The blood of Jesus reversed every part of the curse. That includes sickness, disease, poverty, lack, depression, strife, addiction or any type of bondage to sin. It’s done. Finished. Over. History. Those things have no legal right to be in your life any longer.


The blood of Jesus covered it all.

Revelation 12:11 tells us that believers overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony, or confession. So, when Satan comes to attack in any area, you plead the blood of Jesus. When He tries to tempt you, you plead the blood. When he tries to bring fear or torment, you plead the blood.

The term “pleading the blood” might sound like begging, but it isn’t begging at all. “Pleading the blood” is actually a legal term. Think of it like a lawyer pleading his case before the judge. He presents evidence and facts to support his case.

Our evidence?

The blood of Jesus covers it all.

Another way to describe pleading the blood of Jesus is to apply the blood to a situation in our lives. There’s protection in the blood. There’s deliverance in the blood. When you plead the blood, you have laid down your case and put your entire confidence on an oath that is covenant-sworn by Almighty God.

To effectively plead the blood of Jesus, you need to know what you’re doing. You can make pleading the blood of Jesus part of every day! Here are some ideas to get you started:

You can plead the blood of Jesus over any person or situation. As your children walk out the door, lay your hands on their heads and say, “In the Name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus over [name].” As you drive, say, “In the Name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus over this vehicle and all who are in it. We will go and come back in perfect safety.”

You can plead the blood of Jesus over your health. There was once a woman who was stung by a venomous scorpion. Everyone around her expected her to be in quickly become ill. But, instead, she pled the blood of Jesus against any harm coming to her, and she walked away completely untouched! That’s the power of the blood!

You can plead the blood of Jesus over your home. When you apply the blood of Jesus to your home and property, you are disarming the devil and every planned attempt against you. It stops demons in their tracks and removes all wrong spirits from working against you or your family.

You can plead the blood as often as you like. Billye Brim pleads the blood of Jesus over her family, ministry, home and town every day. Here is an example of what she says:

Kingdom of darkness, you listen up right now. My Father told me in Colossians that I am translated out the authority of the kingdom of darkness and into the Kingdom of Light. Now, listen to me. I take that authority over you. And here's who you don't bother today. I plead the blood of Jesus over my four children: Shelli, Terri, Brenda, Chip, their mates and their children. In the Name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus over the good works God has ordained I should walk in. You stay away from my ministry and my church and my town.

When you learn how to plead the blood of Jesus, you are taking the power and authority granted to you by God Himself and putting it to work in your life, just as He intended. Nothing can stand against the power of the blood! So, start pleading the blood of Jesus in your life with confidence and boldness, and watch the devil flee!
