Text: 2 Kings 2: 11-14 (King James Version)
"Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."
The Fields are white and the laborers are
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"
Praying by the Blood of Jesus
Revelation 12:11: "And they overcame him by the blood of
the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives
unto the death".
I would like you to listen to this message with utmost attention to the Holy Spirit, so that you can key in to what God intends to do through this miracle power. It is a very deep topic, and this is just a scratch on the surface.
Father, Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.
Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN
The verse above gives us weapons and it would be good, if you could memorize it and appropriate it to yourself. There is a weapon that has never lost its power, but people have not learned to use it; It is highly effective. Even the enemy is afraid, when you start to talk about it. That old serpent, the dragon, the Bible talks about, saying: "Woe unto the earth and the sea .." There is a weapon that can overcome it. There is nothing that God created, that He cannot rearrange; there is no enemy that God cannot defeat.
A two-year old girl learnt this song and was always singing it:
"There is power, there is power, there is power in the Blood of Jesus."
Her mother noticed that she never took ill. One day, the mother washed the girl's clothes and hung them outside. There was a high wind, which blew her small panty to the compound next to theirs and it landed in the sitting room of a neighbor, who was a herbalist. Immediately the pant landed, there was pandemonium in the room; everything turned upside down. Everything he knew how to do failed; nothing could avail for him. He did his consultation and he found out that there was a strange thing in the room. He tried to pick it, but he fell. He started to rain incantations, offered sacrifice, poured libation but he could not make a headway. He could not touch the panty, and everywhere was hot. Throughout that day, no customer came for consultation; he battled throughout the night. The following day, the wind blew again and this time, the girl saw her toy flying towards the man's sitting room. She followed it and then saw her panty. She went straight towards it and picked it, singing her song. "There is power in the Blood of Jesus." The herbalist tried to stop her, thinking the ‘strange' thing would harm her but she picked her panty casually, from the centre of oil and blood poured around it. The girl picked it and left, still singing. That incidence, converted the herbalist. He surrendered his life to Christ, having seen that His Power is the absolute Power. He left his beggarly powers and came to the Lord.
There is a power that supersedes every other power. That power, transforms simple things into powerful weapons. The awesomeness and mystery of the power in the Blood of Jesus, is not being preached in the church today. Many present day Christians do not know many things about victory in the battles of life. Learning to claim the power in the Blood of Jesus, is very important. It is a prayer that brings deliverance and protection.
Exodus 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
PLEADING THE BLOOD OF JESUS:
1. Gives protection before adversity strikes. It serves as prevention.
2. Gives physical healing in the body. No matter what
name is given to any problem, it will be solved, when the Blood of Jesus is brought
If you keep pleading the Blood of Jesus, no matter how
bad an infirmity may be, it will disappear by the power in the Blood of Jesus.
If your life is pure and you lay your hands on any sickness, pleading the Blood
of Jesus, it will vanish. You might wonder if it is really as simple as that but
that is the Power in the Blood of Jesus.
The Power in pleading the Blood of Jesus is yet to be understood by Man. Some people criticize those pleading the Blood of Jesus. It is because they have not passed through the valley, so they cannot know what it means. Someone who has never been tortured by a disease cannot know what it means to be threatened by death, so he or she cannot understand why a patient is praying fervently for healing, or why the person is jubilating after he or she has been miraculously healed. The preachers, who discourage people from praying fire prayers or pleading the Blood of Jesus, do so, because they have not experienced such things.
The Blood of Jesus cannot dry up; neither can it lose its power. Therefore you can plead it a million times, if you want to. The more you plead the Blood of Jesus, the more the chance of totally submerging the disease, in the pool of the Blood of Jesus.
Many Christians do not understand the power in the use of the weapons that God has given us against the enemy.
Unbelievers could sit throughout the night, chanting incantations or reciting things against people.
2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
But the Blood
3. Gives emotional healing.
4. Gives mental healing.
5. Helps in battling dark powers.
6. Helps in battling the adversary.
7. Gives financial healing
If you stand in front of your shop or house and plead the Blood of Jesus every day, you will find out that the powers of darkness in that environment will dissipate.
As we are moving towards the End Times, we need to plead the Blood of Jesus, all the time. There is a lot of tragedy and disaster all over the place. Too many Christians are being robed or cheated or raped or murdered. Many are being hypnotized and confused. Pleading the Blood of Jesus, will give you immunity against these things.
8. Cleanses from all sins. Jesus came to die for the sins of the world and His Blood was shed for us. You can claim the cleansing power in His Blood and God will open a new chapter in your life.
You can plead the Blood of Jesus, over any and everything; your spirit, soul and body, your house, car, work, children, spouse, business, as a form of protection or prevention against evil. You can plead the Blood of Jesus over your journey, the road, the vehicle or aircraft, etc. If you are living or passing through a dangerous zone; you can draw a bloodline of protection, therefore making a boundary, against any evil.
A man had a poultry where, all of sudden, the chickens began to die. When he saw that he was going bankrupt with the loss, he cried unto the Lord, who ministered to him about drawing a bloodline around the poultry. Thus, creating a boundary that the enemy cannot cross. He walked round and drew the bloodline around the poultry that night. The following day, he found the carcass of a wolf, about two feet into the circle that he drew. It was stone dead; it had passed its bounds. Today, I pray that any wolf assigned against your life, shall die in the Name of Jesus. Draw the Bloodline and the enemy will keep off. These are very serious matters and we should recognize and know these secrets.
Recently, there have been disasters that have destroyed many lives in many countries. I was told of a man, who saw the flood raging towards his house and he came out and pleaded the Blood of Jesus. The flood obeyed him, not a single drop of water entered his house but the houses next to him, were submerged. That is the power in the Blood of Jesus!
The Blood of Jesus is a battle-weapon; through it, you can achieve the following:
The Blood of Jesus possesses cleansing power. If there is any form of dirt of filth in your life or environment, the Blood of Jesus will cleanse them.
The Blood of Jesus could serve as disinfectant. Any thing that wants to pollute, will not be able to get in. You should sanitize your life, your body, house, shop, etc. In fact, before you move into a new apartment or house, you should sanitize it and the surroundings, with the Blood of Jesus. The foundations of many houses, were laid with sacrifices of all kinds. Houses that were built thirty of forty years ago, have things buried in them, by the owners and such things work negatively on the inhabitants of such houses, especially if they are not born again.
When you call the Blood of Jesus into operation, it causes the enemy to flee, because it contains the life of God. It sets people free from bondage.
4. Healing: It can heal all forms of infirmity. When you plead the Blood of Jesus, things begin to happen.
6. Life-giving power: to revive anyone or anything that is dead. It could be marriage, finances, business, etc.
7. Yoke-breaking: Whenever you plead the Blood of Jesus, people and things are set free from any kind of yoke.
8. Overcoming power.
9. Door-opening power to open every door that has been closed against good things in the life of a person.
10. Creative and re-creative power. Anything that is supposed to be in the life or body of a person, or has been removed through surgery or witchcraft, can be recalled back into existence by the Blood of Jesus.
11. Renewing power.
12. Battle dissolving power that makes the enemies go in disarray.
13. Promotion power and energy.
14. Breakthrough power.
15. Miracle receiving power
16. Poison destroying power. Many have been poisoned physically or spiritually. The Blood of Jesus neutralizes such poisons and flushes them out of the system.
17. Mountain-moving power
18. Demon-paralyzing power.
We used to sing the song: "Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing Blood, are you washed in the Blood of the Lamb." I once heard of a woman in a church one time that started to manifest and a strange voice to be spoken from her mouth, screaming: "Stop that music, stop that music!" The demon in her was affected by the song, because of the power in the Blood of Jesus.
19. Virtue-restoring power.
20. Burden-removing power.
21. Bondage-destroying power:
When you plead the Blood of Jesus into any situation, it will eventually bow. Many people do not understand the overcoming weapons that they have in the word of God. The Bible says: "And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony."
Today, you will watch that Blood in display, if you will pray the prayers I am suggesting below, from your heart. That Blood was not shed in vain; it was shed for forgiveness, deliverances, protection, etc. You would be cheating yourself, if you do not use that facility. I recently read of A 26 year old sister who was looking like an old woman, heard a message like this and decided to use it. She locked herself up for three days, pleading the Blood of Jesus into her situation. By the time she came out, her correct body, shape, face, had been restored to her. She now looked her age.
If you want your things the enemy has stolen from you to come back, pray with power and with fire. The power in the Blood of Jesus was given to it from the beginning. Do you know that there is power and life in blood generally? If a person lacks blood, it means he or she is dying. That is why some things work for occultists, who kill goats and fowls for sacrifice. How much more, the Blood of the Son of God?
There was a King in the Bible, who saw that he was loosing a battle; he quickly sacrificed his first son. As he was shedding that blood, Israel that was attacking them, got confused. If the blood of animals and human beings could make an impact, how much more, the Blood of Jesus, the Son of God?
Blood is a living thing and the Blood of Jesus, has the power to overcome anything that confronts you. However, there is a small condition. For you to plead the Blood of Jesus and have it work for you:
* You must surrender your life to the Lord Jesus. You must be completely yielded to Him.
* You must live a pure and holy life.
You have a wonderful opportunity today, to invite the overcoming power in the Blood of Jesus, to come into your situation.
If you are not born again and you would like to surrender your life to Christ, you can do so right now, right there where you are. All you need do, is see yourself as a sinner and know that you cannot approach God in your sinful state. Repent of your sins; confess them to the Lord and ask Him to forgive you. Name them one by one, renounce them and decide that you will not go back to them anymore.
It is the most important decision in life, and I pray that it shall be permanent in your life, in the Name of Jesus. I pray that the Lord will uphold you with His hand or righteousness and you will not fall or fail in the Name of Jesus. I pray that the Lord will write your name in the Book of Life and nothing shall by any means, rub it off in the Name of Jesus. Go and sin no more!
It will be a pity, if after hearing this message, the Blood of Jesus does not avail for you. Check yourself very well;
is there anything in your life that could hinder the
move or the power of God in your situation? Have you done or said something that
you should not? Are you relating with people that you should not? Check
yourself. Are there some things that the Holy Spirit has been telling you are
bad, and you do not want to listen?
Today, as you plead the Blood of Jesus, His liquid raw power, will come upon your life and strange and marvelous things will begin to take place in your life. God will release all sorts of blessings upon your life today; physical, spiritual, material blessings, marital and financial breakthroughs, will be release upon your life as you plead the Blood of Jesus into your situation.
Some people will pray the following prayers, and will never know poverty again. Many will be healed from even terminal diseases, and they will have testimonies.
Confess all sins, known and unknown, conscious and unconscious, parental, inherited, martial sins. God has all powers in His Hands and is ready to move, even right there, where you are. Believe God for the move of His power in your life.
