In part 2, I showed you how to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Protection.
It gets a little trickier when Pleading the Blood against something that may have already come against you. These are what I call battle situations.
You, or someone else you know, may have just been hit with a life-threatening illness or disease such as cancer. You may know someone who is an alcoholic or drug addict and they cannot seem to break free from it. You may know someone else who is severely depressed and they are seriously contemplating suicide. Another person may be under severe demonic attack as a result of engaging in some type of occult activity.
There are a million and one things that could come against anyone of us at any time. If something has already come directly against you and you are now caught in its evil grip, then you are now going to have to go on the offensive and try to take it out by Pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against it!
When you run across a situation that will need God’s supernatural power to fully deliver you, you will usually need some kind of battle strategy in which to war against it.
The person may not be saved and you may have to get them saved before God can move in to deliver them. Another person may be saved, but not walking in a full surrender with the Lord, and you may have to get that person to commit to making a full surrender before God will move in to help them out.
This is where the Holy Spirit is really going to be coming in big time. Depending on the kind of predicament you are dealing with, you will have to be totally guided and led by the Holy Spirit as to how to handle each one of these battle situations.
Each one of these battle situations are completely unique and different. No two battle situations are ever alike. This is why you are going to have to be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit on how to handle each one of these battle situations.
And this will now lead us right into the next section, the personal testimonies of our website where I have written up some of the victories that have been obtained by giving the appropriate battle advice on each one of these unique and different battle situations.
As you will see as I explain what happened on each case, I always go the Lord in prayer first and ask Him how He wants me to handle each one of these unique battle situations.
I also give you some of the specific battle prayers that I gave to some of these people to help get them delivered out of some real nasty predicaments. As you review each one of these testimonies, you will then get an idea on how to handle something that may have already come against you where you will need God’s deliverance and/or healing power to help get you out of it.
All of these powerful testimonies have one major thing in common – and this is where many Christians are really missing out on being able to get delivered from some of their bad predicaments – and that one common denominator is that all of these people had to be taught how to go on the offensive against whatever adversity had just come their way.
Too many Christians are way too passive when confronted with any type of severe adversity.
The Bible tells us that all Christians carry the power of God on the inside of them through the Holy Spirit.
The Bible tells us that we are all soldiers of Jesus Christ. If God is telling us that we are all good soldiers of His Son Jesus Christ, then this means we all have His power at our disposal in which to engage and defeat any enemy that may try and come against us.
The problem is that most Christians have never been taught how to go on the offensive when the enemy does launch an all-out, full scale attack against them. Most Christians have never been taught how to use spiritual warfare so they can directly engage with an enemy head on like David did with Goliath. As a result, many Christians are literally getting their heads knocked off in the arena of life when adversity does come knocking on their doors.
This article, and the “Testimonies” section of our website, will attempt to show you how to use one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful form of spiritual warfare to take on any enemy and come out completely victorious – and that is learning how to Plead the Blood of Jesus Christ directly against whatever adversity may have just come your way.
Before you go into the actual testimonies, let me give you some major power verses from the Bible showing you that all Christians carry the power of God on the inside of them through the Person of the Holy Spirit. And if God is empowering all of us with His divine power, then He is obviously going to want us to do something with it – and that is to use it when we will need it!
‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)
This one little verse should be memorized by all Christians. In one powerful sentence, God is telling us that things get accomplished not by our power or by our might, but by the power of the Holy Spirit.
- “But you shall receive POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
- “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in POWER, and in the Holy Spirit …” (1 Thessalonians 1:5)
- “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in POWER.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)
- “… in mighty signs and wonders, by the POWER of the Spirit of God …” (Romans 15:19)
These verses are talking about the signs and wonders that the early apostles walked with. These verses are specifically telling us that all of the signs and wonders that were done by the early apostles were done by the power of the Holy Spirit. And if we have the same Holy Spirit that the early apostles did, then we too are capable of having God manifest His power to us through the Holy Spirit like He did with them.
The Bible tells us that God is no respecter of persons – which means what He will do for one, He will do for another.
- “And with GREAT POWER the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.” (Acts 4:33)
- “I CAN DO ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
Notice the word “all” – that there is nothing that God cannot do through you or for you if He should choose to do so.
“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)
I am repeating this verse once again. Again, notice Jesus is telling the apostles they will have His power to defeat all of the power of their enemies and that nothing shall be able to hurt them! This verse should burned into all of our memory banks so that we never, ever forget who we serve and follow in this life, and how powerful our Lord really is!
This one verse is telling us that we all have God’s supernatural power and authority operating through us. We just have to learn how to walk and flow with God’s power that has been made available to all of us through the Holy Spirit.
Personal Testimonies Section of Website
After reading this article, it would our recommendation that you to go to our “Testimonies” section and print out and study very carefully some of the powerful testimonies we have in there. These testimonies will show you how powerful Pleading the Blood and forming out the appropriate kinds of battle prayers to fit the specific battle situation you are dealing with really is.
Due to the very personal nature of many of these testimonies, I will not be releasing names of the actual people involved.
However, I do have all of their permissions to release their stories to you so that you can all learn from them. Notice the wide variety of things that you can Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against as you study these testimonies.
One more thing. In order to be able to receive forgiveness from the Blood of Jesus for any of your sins, there is something that you must do.
You must first confess the sin to God, and then God will grant you His forgiveness. It is the same thing for the deliverance and protection that is in the Blood of Jesus.
In order to be able to receive God’s deliverance and protection from the Blood of Jesus, there is something that you must do. And that something is “Pleading” the Blood for the protection or deliverance that you are looking for. As you will see in each one of these stories, the Blood of Jesus had to be specifically pled against whatever the nature of the attack was.
The Pleading of Jesus’ Blood in each one of these cases was incorporated into what I call a battle prayer. T
hese battle prayers are extremely powerful and effective when properly worded and prayed out. In all of these cases, complete deliverance and victory came about very quickly.
For those of you who would like some additional reading material on the power of Pleading the Blood of Jesus, here are three very good books that I would highly recommend:
- ” Power of the Blood” by H. A. Maxwell Whyte.
- ” The Blood & the Glory” by Billye Brim.
- ” The Word, The Name, The Blood” by Joyce Meyer.
As you will see when reviewing some of our actual testimonies, there is definite power in Pleading the Blood of Jesus for deliverance and protection. You can use it in a wide variety of adverse situations, and in all of our personal cases, victory and deliverance came about very quickly for each person that went on the offensive with it!
If either you, or anyone else that you know has been caught up in any kind of adverse predicament – try going on the offensive as these people did. Form out the appropriate battle prayer that will fit your particular situation and then take your enemy head on like David did with Goliath.
I will be doing additional articles in the future going into much more detail on the different strategies that you can take when using spiritual warfare so as to help you live a victorious and overcoming life in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
