APPROPRIATING THE BLOOD OF JESUS

HIS GLORY REIGNS

Sept. 7, 2007


We need to start using and living under the Blood of Jesus by having faith in the Blood.  Jesus' Blood has a voice; it is
right now on the mercy seat in heaven crying out "Mercy, Mercy!" for all those who believe in Him. You and I can go
boldly to the throne and receive mercy for our failures.  We can walk in the authority with which Jesus has clothed us.  
We can exercise authority over Satan and his demonic hosts because of Jesus and His Blood, not because of us or
anything we could ever do to earn that privilege.  You need to start praying the Blood over your children, your car, your
home, your property and your body. You have a legal right to use the Blood of Jesus, just as we have a legal right to
use the name of Jesus.  It has been given to us, and we have a right to use it.  

Where one has God-given authority (your sphere of authority), in your own life, in the lives of your children, your
ministries, and the lives of other believers, etc. - any stronghold of Satan can be destroyed by holding the Blood of
Jesus upon it.

The devil is a legalist to the maximum degree, and you and I had better use all of our legal rights in dealing with him.  
We have a legal right to the Blood of Jesus. It is effective against satanic floods when applied by faith.  A proper
application of His Blood to a given situation, if the believer is operating from a  "
cleansed" position, always bring
deliverance - it never fails...

The Blood of Jesus avails for all things; it is our protection against everything if we will cry for it and trust in it.

Believers have the Blood of Jesus but precious few even understand the value of it, let alone how to use it in their
everyday lives to provide for the protection of themselves and their property.  

We need to "put" the blood on our lives and homes.  We do it by faith.  We do it simply saying, in faith,
"Father God, I
plead the blood of Jesus on my life and my home."
 Joyce Meyers prays this prayer when she is applying the
Blood:  "Father, I come to You in Jesus' name, and I put the blood of Jesus on my life and on all that belongs to me, on
all that over which You have made me a steward.  I put the blood of Jesus on my mind, my body, my emotions and my
will.  I believe I am protected by that Blood.  I put the blood on my children, my employees and all the partners of Life in
the Word Ministries."

Pleading the Blood with our mouths lines up with scripture,
"Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath
redeemed from the hand of the enemy."
 Psalm 107:2

WHAT TO SAY AND HOW TO SAY IT (some examples)....

If the enemy tries to put the curse upon you, say that you are redeemed from the curse of the law:

"
According to Galatians 3:13 I am redeemed from the curse of the law and I say so.  I am redeemed by the
Blood of the Lamb.  I overcome you Satan by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony."

If the enemy tries to stifle your overcoming/deliverance:

"Satan, that is you trying to get me to smoke a reefer.  In the Name of Jesus I resist you with the Blood of
the Lamb.  You have to go.  It is written, 'Resist the devil and he will flee from you.'"

For protection for you, your family, your property:

" I cover my home with the Blood of Jesus to protect occupants and possessions from any influence, Satan,
that you or your evil spirits would try to exert.  I bring to bear the power of the Blood of Jesus to loose your
plans and devices from every individual and all possessions under my authority."

"In the Name of Jesus I plead (or apply),  the Blood of Jesus over "Mary " (your child, for example)"

"Father God, in the Name of Jesus, cover me with the Blood of Jesus."

Hold the Blood of Jesus until it overcomes Satan and he does flee;  "This is of you Satan.  I hold the Blood against
you, and declare on God's Word that it does now overcome you, and that you do now flee."

GET UNDER AND STAY UNDER THE BLOOD

  • Traveling -  "Plead" the Blood or "apply" the Blood upon the room to cleanse or remove any wrong spirits that
    may be there from other guests.

  • Battling wounded emotions - Put the Blood on your emotions so you won't have to keep being devastated by
    people who don't seem to know how to give you what you feel you need from them.  

  • Sickness - If you are sick in your body, plead the Blood of Jesus over your body.  The life is in the Blood; it can
    drive out the death of sickness.  In Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin's book, The Triumphant Church, he gave an account of
    how a missionary in the early part of this century overcame the always deadly sting of a venomous scorpion by
    saying, "I plead the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ against this scorpion sting."  The native watched the woman
    expecting her to die.  When she suffered no ill effects, most of them accepted Jesus.

Maria Woodworth-Etter recalls praying for Brother Anderson:

"...He had blood poisoning and was covered with ugly running and eating sores; some nearly as large as his hand.  He
was a nervous wreck....I prayed for his soul and body, and sprinkled the Blood of Jesus all over him, by a living faith.
Bless God, the blood struck in:  I laid hands on him and rebuked the poison, and cast out the unclean spirits, and the
plague was stayed, and the blood cleansed."

Daily, by faith apply the Blood of Jesus.  Hold it  to a tormented spot (back, leg, head, stomach) ministering death to its
continuance, binding its power to remain.

  • Your Children -  Bring up your children using the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of God.  Cover them and
    their comings and goings with the Blood of the Lamb.

  • Pressure, Tension, or any kind of satanic effort to thwart the complete will of God in your life - Apply the
    Blood.

- By faith, draw a Blood line - Draw a Blood line around loved ones and property, not only in times of peril but at all
times.  Ensure the safety of you and your family  even when performing routine tasks.

  • Waking up in the Morning -  As soon as you awake in the morning get under the Blood of Jesus.

  • Going to Sleep at Night - Get under the Blood of Jesus.

  • In an emergency (no time for prayer) - Say the "The Blood of Jesus" or "I plead the Blood of Jesus."

Apply the Blood of Jesus to your mind, body, emotions, and will.  You are  within your rights to apply the Blood of Jesus
to your hang-ups, your bondages, those things that you just cannot seem to conquer.  Don't use your energy trying to
conquer, use it in worship, praise, thanksgiving, and fellowship.  Jesus is the Conquering Hero, not you and I.

When dealing with emotions, strife for example, make sure you do not leave an open door for the devil.  Repent, and
ask God to forgive you and cleanse you from the unrighteousness.  Close any door you may have opened for the
devil.  Ask God to cleanse the wound and close the door - then seal it shut with the blood of Jesus.

The Word of God, the Name of Jesus, the Blood of the Lamb, and the resources of Heaven are made available to us in
our earthly walk.  We need to possess all the secrets revealed in the Word pertaining to the power availed us.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John
1:9  From this scripture we are being told that if we will confess our sins to God, He will "continuously" cleanse us.  Our
blood works for us all the time, continuously working to keep us cleansed of poisons, and the Blood of Jesus works all
the time, continuously cleansing us from sin in all its forms and manifestations.  The Bible states that there is only one
requirement on our part:  we must freely admit that we have sinned and confess our sin.  Be quick to repent, don't try to
hide anything from God.  Repentance releases the power of the Blood in your behalf.  This is one way you can "use"
the Blood and allow it to be effective in your life.  Let the Lord "wash" you in the His Blood.  Release your faith in the
Blood of Jesus. Leave no issues open between you and the Lord.  
The power of God and pride do not mix, so do
not be afraid of learning about your authority as a believer.  The more you learn about who you really are in Christ
Jesus, the more humbled you will be.
