Pleading the Blood of Jesus


One of the weapons of our warfare is to remind the devils of the blood covenant paid for us by Jesus Christ.  Some people call this “pleading” the blood of Jesus. While there is no direct reference to this term there is scriptural reference to the idea of reminding the enemy of our position in Jesus Christ.

This form of spiritual warfare is attacked by some Christians and the devil really likes it! This is because the devil hates to be reminded that he is a defeated foe. While our position in the new covenant is as blood bought new creations, the devil will not acknowledge this. Let me explain.

Jesus is our mediator, or lawyer. One who advocates for another. In a court of law the rule of law must be put forth to the judge to define the offense, this is done by the prosecution or the accuser of the brethren. Then the advocate brings the defense. The defense is, this, the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.

Some Christians fail to see that the accuser still stands before the court of God to accuse and Jesus stands there in mediation.  This is his job today! At the right hand of God Jesus makes our defense.  When scriptures say,”It is finished” it means that it is finished but that does not mean there is no opposition to this. For example, a law set in place in our judicial system may not be acknowledged by a criminal so it must be enforced and that is why we have police and lawyers. It is the same way in God’s kingdom and just so you know, our common law system is built on the principals of Mosaic Law.

Why do you think that Christians need to have spiritual weapons and fight spiritual warfare? Those who ignore these Biblical concepts may find that their lives are not going to be protected. God himself said, “MY PEOPLE perish for lack of knowledge.”

Ignorance of the devil’s devises is dangerous to your welfare on this earth. God has given us spiritual principles in this word and he expects us to use them.  I am someone who believes in the sovereignty of God but I also know that God’s sovereignty is applied as he wills by the means he wills.

For example, if God wants someone saved, he will raise up prayer and the preaching of the word to get that person saved.  If you don’t believe that then tell me why Jesus needed a fish and a loaf to multiply to feed the people and why he needed water to turn to wine and why he needed prophetic acts by the prophets? No, not because he is kooky but because the principles of the kingdom have spiritual protocol or spiritual laws that must be applied.

Just as there are natural laws that govern the universe there are spiritual laws that govern the kingdom of God.  For example, Jesus said in the Bible, give and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, ask and you will be given, ect. These are laws that govern the kingdom of God. We are not saved by any laws but spiritual principals are spiritual laws like the law of gravity is a natural law. Now to come to my point, the law of applying the blood covenant to a given situation.

We know that the blood of Jesus cleanses from sin. Not just our sin yesterday but any sin tomorrow.  The devil will use any un-confessed sin to destroy you.  We need to acknowledge our sin and confess it to God and ask for his help in delivering us from that sin.

“For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:28

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” Ephesians 1:7

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been made near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:13

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood … for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:11

The Bible tells us that the devil accuses the Christian night and day before God and he has a case if the sin is un-confessed. Satan can cause a lot of havoc in the Christian’s life who has un-confessed sin. However, when the sin is confessed and brought to the light and forsaken, which means that you forsake the love of your sin and embrace the Holy Spirit’s power to defeat that sin by yielding or surrendering to God taking control of it, you can be set free.

Now if you try to give up your sin by your will power you will eventually fall back into it. Asking the Holy Spirit to change your heart and make it line up with his will is the principle of the kingdom of God and not old law keeping which has no power to defeat sin.

Let me show you what the Bible says about the power of the blood of Jesus as a weapon of our warfare.

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

 “… that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” Hebrews 2:14

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13

“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 2:15

“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:11

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19

“How much more shall the blood of Christ…purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Hebrews 9:14

Pleading is a legal term of advocacy and it means a law of presenting a case in court as by a lawyer on behalf of his client. In other words it is a legal defense. So when we plead the blood of Jesus, we are putting forth our advocate’s defense to the prosecution and when we do this we are justified in our situation.

While Jesus paid the price for sin ONCE for all, we must continually plead our defense when we fall into sin and we do this all the time because we are not yet made perfect. This makes the devil a defeated foe in our lives because we have God’s defense against sin and that is the blood of Jesus!

Father in Jesus name I plead the blood of Jesus on my life because Jesus continually lives to make intercession for me. I acknowledge that I am not perfect and I ask for you to help me in my weaknesses by the power of your Holy Spirit, in the name of my advocate and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
