How to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Deliverance and Protection

Last updated on:

Many of the non-denominational churches talk about the power of Pleading the Blood of Jesus – but they do not tell you exactly how to do it, what to plead it on, what to plead it against, and how frequently you need to do it in order to get God’s maximum protection on you and your loved ones.

In this article, I will show you exactly how to plead the Blood, what to plead it on, some of things that you can plead it against, and how frequently you will need to plead it in order to get God’s maximum protection on you and your specific set of circumstances.

I will also give you the Scriptural grounds that entitles all Christians to be able to use this form of offensive prayer.

I will also show you how to incorporate the Pleading of the Blood in your own personal battle prayers, which is when you will need God’s deliverance and/or healing power to come into any type of adverse situation that you may have just fallen into.

I will back all of this up with some very powerful testimonies involving myself and some of my personal friends, and how Pleading the Blood of Jesus helped rescue and deliver them out of some real dire predicaments. All of these stories will be in the “Testimonies” section of our website. The information in this article has been battle tested and battle proven.

In my own personal opinion – I believe that learning how to Plead the Blood of Jesus will give you one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful form of offensive prayer that you can use for any kind of deliverance and/or protection that you may need from the Lord.

This form of offensive prayer can not only be used to get God’s protection on you before any type of adversity ever strikes you, but it can also be used for physical, emotional, and mental healings, for battling demons, and for battling any kind of storm cloud that may have just come your way.

I believe that we are truly heading into end time waters as prophesied in the Bible. Learning how to properly Plead the Blood of Jesus for deliverance and protection is going to be needed by all Christians in order to help keep them out of harms way as things really start to heat up in the years ahead.

Too many Christians are getting robbed, abducted, murdered, emotionally and/or physically abused, slandered, cheated, scammed, etc. All you have to do is watch the daily news and it is one horror story after another.

I believe the number one reason why so many Christians are coming under such heavy attacks from both demons and evil people in this world is because they do not have God’s full protection on them.

And the reason they do not have God’s full protection on them is because they have never been taught how to spiritually defend themselves using actual spiritual warfare techniques!

There are numerous verses in the Bible telling all of us that we are to be good soldiers of Jesus Christ and that we have to fight the good fight of faith.

Like it or not, we are all living in a war zone as a result of the Adamic curse that is still in full operation on this earth.

We are living in a fallen, imperfect, and cursed world that is subject to death, corruption, demonic spirits, and evil humans who have chosen with their own free wills to live this life on the dark side.

What this means is that anyone of us at anytime can come under direct human or demonic attack. Places where we thought we were safe are no longer safe. Criminals are getting more brazen and more evil. Children are literally getting abducted right out of their beds in the middle of the night with their parents and the other children in the house sleeping in the other rooms.

9/11 has forever changed our landscape as far as all Americans are concerned. Radical terrorists have now officially invaded our country and we will never know when or where the next attack will occur. The Bible has already warned us that evil, lawlessness, and immorality will abound in the end times.

There are verses telling us that in the end times men will become lovers of self, unholy, blasphemers, having no self-control and only living life for what they can get out of it.

The Bible tells us that the love of many will grow cold during these times, and many people will only be out for themselves and for whatever pleasures they can get out of this life while they still can.

As a result of this kind of deterioration in man’s moral state, many people will become more impulsive, brazen, and evil. This may help explain why some of these evil people are literally kidnapping children right out of their beds or front yards while the parents or babysitters are still in the home.

They are losing all self-control over their evil sick desires and impulses, and they are acting out on them without any thought of the consequences of their actions.

Since I really do feel that we have officially entered into end time waters as prophesied in the Bible, each Christian is going to have to make a big personal decision as to how they are going to live the rest of what time they still have left down here on this earth.

Christians can either choose to remain passive with their heads stuck in the sand, hoping that neither they nor any of their close loved ones will ever come under any kind of direct human or demonic attack – or they can choose to learn how to rise up in the power of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and learn how to spiritually defend themselves using spiritual warfare techniques as given to us out of the Bible!

When the enemy does come, and he will come at each one of us from time to time, you can either choose to run and hide hoping that you will somehow survive the attack and make it out in one piece – or you can choose to learn how to spiritually defend yourself and engage with the enemy head on like David did with Goliath.

The choice is yours. Too many Christians are taking the first approach, and they are literally getting killed and taken out of this life way too early.

The pain, torment, and agony of losing loves ones, especially to any kind of violent crime, is beyond human comprehension.

Too many Christians are living defeated lives with no real joy, peace, or power in their lives. Storm cloud after storm cloud keeps coming after them beating them down to a pulp.

Many Christians, since they have not been properly taught how to engage with the enemy when he does come their way, are drowning in their sea of troubles.

Too many Christians could not pray their way out of a paper sack if they ever got caught in one because they have never established any kind of personal relationship with the Lord, have never developed any real working knowledge from His Word, have no real knowledge of the enemy, his tactics, and how he operates – and have no real knowledge on how to properly pray or stand in the gap for someone else to get God to move in with His supernatural power to bring freedom, healing, or deliverance to a particular situation.

In my opinion, and from the personal experiences that I have had with this form of offensive prayer, I believe that learning how to Plead the Blood of Jesus may be one of the greatest, offensive, spiritual weapons that you can have in your arsenal.

As you will see in the personal testimony section of our site, complete and total victory was granted to each person who had Pleaded the Blood of Jesus on their specific set of circumstances. And in most of the cases, the victory was granted very quickly!

This is how powerful this form of offensive prayer really is.

For those of you who really want to learn how to arm and defend both yourself and your close loved ones when these attacks do come your way, read on. For those of you who will choose to remain passive hoping that nothing bad will ever come your way, at least keep this article on the shelf in the event that any serious adversity ever does strike you or any of your close loved ones down the road.

Before I go into exactly how to Plead the Blood of Jesus and all of the different things that you can Plead the blood against, I will first give you the Scriptural grounds that entitles all Christians to be able to use this form of offensive prayer.

Scriptural Grounds for Pleading the Blood of Jesus

There are many Christians who attack this form of prayer. They ask where in Scripture is there proof that we can use this kind of prayer for either protection or deliverance when we will really need it. There was no evidence that the early apostles ever pled the blood to heal, to cast out demons, or to get God’s basic protection on them.

I believe there are three specific things contained in the Blood of Jesus – forgiveness, deliverance, and protection. Many Christians only know about the first one – forgiveness. They have no idea there are two other things available to them that will enable them to live a victorious and overcoming life in the Lord while still living down here on this earth. Here is a brief discussion on each one of these three things.

1. Forgiveness

As Christians, we all know there is definitely forgiveness in the Blood of Jesus. This is the basic central message of true Christianity – that God the Father sent His one and only begotten Son Jesus Christ down to our earth in the flesh to physically die on a cross in order to save us and give us total and permanent forgiveness for all of our sins.

Without Jesus dying and shedding His blood on the cross, there would be no forgiveness and remission of any of our sins. Here are some extremely powerful verses from Scripture specifically telling us this:

  1. “For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28)
  2. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” (Ephesians 1:7)
  3. “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been made near by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13)
  4. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood … for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:11)

Notice the emphasis on the word “blood” in these verses. There is no question that in these verses, and others in the Bible, that the blood that Jesus personally shed for us on the cross is what leads all of us to be able to receive eternal salvation, the forgiveness of all of our sins, and entrance into heaven when we die and cross over.

2. Deliverance

Now what are the Scriptural grounds that will give us the legal right to be able to use the blood of Jesus when taking on any attacks that may come our way? As you will see in some of the stories in the Testimonies section of our site, you can Plead the Blood of Jesus against specific types of attacks such as attacks from demons or other evil people, any kind of physical illness or disease, or any kinds of addictions like drugs and alcohol.

Many Christians are not aware of this second component that is in the Blood of Jesus which will entitle us to be able to use His Blood to go on the offensive against any adversity that may come our way.

Something else happened that day when Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins. The Bible tells us that Jesus also defeated Satan and all of the powers of darkness that day! Here are several good verses from Scripture proving this point to you:

  1. “… 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)
  2. “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)
  3. “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” (Colossians 2:15)
  4. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)
  5. “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)

What defeated Satan and all his dark powers? The physical death of Jesus on the cross. And what did Jesus do when He died that day on the cross for all of us? He shed His Blood!

This is why Pleading the Blood of Jesus works so well in real life combat situations when it really is needed to defeat attacks that are coming against us from the dark side.

Many Christians are not fully aware of this second fact about the Blood of Jesus – that the Blood of Jesus can also be used to engage with our enemies when they do try to launch any kind of an attack against us. I believe that all of the above Scripture verses definitely tell us that the blood that Jesus shed that day on the cross has totally defeated Satan and all of his dark powers.

The only thing left is for all Christians to fully realize this incredible fact, and to grab a hold of this powerful truth and not to be afraid to use when they need it – especially when demons or other evil people are attempting to come against them with any type of unjust action or attack.

Here are four more good powerful verses from Scripture showing that all Christians now have God’s supernatural power and anointing available to them so they can use it to engage with the dark side of this life:

“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)

Notice in this verse we have God’s power over all the power of our enemies, not just against some or part of their powers. This means we have the ability to come out completely victorious in some of life’s battles and struggles, but only if we learn how to properly use what is now available to us.

“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1)

Notice in this verse that Jesus gives the twelve apostles power over all demons, not just some of them. If we have God’s power available to us to defeat all demons, then I believe that we also have God’s power to defeat any and all humans who may try to come against us with any type of unjust action or attack.

“… but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” (Daniel 11:32)

“Knowing their God” means that we have spent good quality time in establishing a good personal relationship with the Lord. If we do this, then this verse is telling us that God will strengthen and empower us when we need His power to be able to carry out great exploits and great adventures for Him.

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

This verse is telling us that God is actually looking for people that He can anoint with His power and show Himself strong through, but the implication appears to be that He really cannot find many people who are willing to pay the price to be able to really walk with His anointing.

As you can see from the way all of the above Scripture verses are worded – true Christianity is not a weak, wimpy, or passive religion. As born-again believers, we all have the Holy Spirit literally living on the inside of us.

As a result, our bodies have now become the actual temple of the Holy Spirit. His supernatural power is now fully available to all of us in order to help us handle some of the storm clouds that can come against us in this life.

Learning how to properly Plead the Blood of Jesus for any deliverance and protection that you may need is just one part of our arsenal. I will be doing other articles in the near future covering some of the other aspects on this part of our walk with the Lord.

3. Protection

As you will see in the next section, you can also Plead the Blood of Jesus on specific things that you will want protected before any kind of adversity could strike them – like your body, house, car, and finances. The goal is to Plead the Blood of Jesus on those things in order to protect you before any kind of adversity could ever come your way.

If the above verses are showing us that we can Plead the Blood of Jesus against any attacks that may have already come our way, then I believe it only stands to reason that we can also go one step further with the Blood of Jesus – and that is to use it for protection before any kind of attack could actually come our way.

In this case, you simply Plead the Blood of Jesus on whatever you want God’s full protection on before any attacks could possibly come your way.

I believe there is something else in the Bible that gives us another clue that entitles us to be able to Plead the Blood for this specific purpose.

In the Old Testament, God the Father had it arranged with His chosen people, the Jews, that in order for them to be able to enter into a covenant relationship with Him, they had to have some kind of temporary covering for their sins. Jesus had not come yet, so there was no full remission for any of the sins that had occurred back at that time

What God the Father had set up was the sacrifice of blemish-free animals such as bulls, goats and lambs. Their blood had to be shed once per year on what was called the Day of Atonement. The shedding of these animals blood was what gave the Jewish people a temporary covering for their sins so they could then enter into a personal relationship with God the Father.

This is why Jesus is called the “Lamb of God.” He is an extension of the lambs used by His Father in the Old Testament to give the Jewish people a temporary covering for their sins. Once Jesus had come to shed His own blood on the cross, there was no more need for any more animal sacrifices. His death on the cross had completed and fulfilled what His Father had started in the Old Testament with the sacrifice of these animals.

Now watch this analogy. In the shedding of the lamb’s blood on the Day of Atonement, there was a temporary covering for the sins of the Jewish people. Then Jesus comes in the New Testament, and the shedding of His blood now gives all believers complete and total forgiveness for all of their sins.

Now here is where I feel that something else occurred back in the Old Testament that may entitle us to be able to use the Blood of Jesus for divine protection. In the story of the Passover, God had sent His servant Moses to rescue the children of Israel from their captivity to the Egyptians. God had thrown ten whopper plagues at the Pharaoh in an effort to try and get him to release His people from his rule.

On one of those plagues, God tells Pharaoh that He is going to allow an angel of death to come through their camp to kill all of their firstborn children. However, before God sets all of this up to occur, He tells His own people to shed the blood of a blemish-free lamb and to put that shed blood on the door posts and lintels of their houses.

God tells His people that the angel of death will bypass their house if he sees this shed blood put on their door posts and lintels.

This angel of death will thus not kill any of the Israelite’s firstborn – but only if he sees the blood properly applied to the door posts and lintels of their houses.

In other words, the blood of this blemish-free lamb was being used for divine protection before this attack would ever come their way. Had each person not properly applied this blood on their door posts, their firstborn children would have also been killed, along with the rest of the firstborn children of the Egyptians.

Here is my argument on this:

If the shed blood of the Old Testament lambs used for the temporary covering of sins eventually leads to the shedding of Jesus’ blood for permanent and total forgiveness of all of our sins – can we also use that same analogy and say that the shed blood of the lambs used in the Passover for divine protection could also lead to the shed Blood of Jesus having divine protection in it?

I personally believe the answer is yes, and that is why God the Father seems willing to work with any believer who will plead the blood of Jesus on whatever they want protection on before any attack can come their way – just like He did in the story of the Passover with His own chosen people.

Before I go into the specifics on how to Plead the Blood of Jesus for deliverance and protection, there is one more area that each Christian must make a big personal decision on before God will give you this kind of full divine protection.

Saved and Surrendered

In order to be able to Plead the Blood of Jesus for any kind of deliverance or protection you may need, there are two requirements that must be met.

1. Saved

You must be a saved and born-again Christian. A nonbeliever cannot use the blood of Jesus. In the story of the Passover, only God’s chosen people were allowed to apply the blood of the lamb on their door posts to get His full protection on them.

It is the same way in the New Testament. Only born-again, Christian believers can use the blood of Jesus for deliverance and protection.

2. The Full Surrender

However, for those who are already saved and born-again Christians, there is now one more big thing that you will have to do before you can start to get God’s best to start flowing into your life – which will include getting His maximum protection on you and your life. And that is to be willing to make a full and complete surrender of your entire being and your entire life over to God the Father.

You have to be both saved and surrendered in order to be able to step from the dugout out onto the real playing field where the real walk with the Lord is really at. God is wanting you to fully surrender four specific things to Him:

  • Your body
  • Your soul
  • Your spirit
  • Your entire life

The Bible tells us that we have three parts to our beings – body, soul and spirit. God wants all three parts of our being completely surrendered over to Him. The fourth thing that God will also want from you is for you to fully surrender your entire life over to Him. And when I say entire life, I mean literally everything in your life.

The Bible tells us that with the measure we use, will be the measure that will be measured back to us. In other words, if you want God’s best to start flowing into your life, then you will have to give God your personal best – and your personal best is being willing to fully surrender every part of your being and every part of your life over to the Lord for His full direction and handling. It’s your all for His all.

This full surrender to the Lord is where many Christians are really missing the boat with Him.

They are saved through the blood of Jesus, but they are not walking in this full surrender with God the Father.

As a result, God is not working full force in their lives. The only way to get God to start working full force in your life is to come under a complete and full surrender with Him.

Bottom line – God’s knowledge and wisdom is perfect on all matters – yours is not! God can see into the future and knows exactly what is going to happen to you – you cannot.

God knows you better than you can ever know yourself, and as a result, He knows what your true potential and capabilities are going to be in this life – you do not.

Your powers are limited, but God’s powers are not. The Bible tells us that God is all-powerful and that there is nothing that He cannot do or accomplish. Nothing is impossible with God.

After chewing on all of the above, who do you want running your life? Yourself, with your limited powers, wisdom, and knowledge – or God the Father, who has maximum power and knowledge to do and accomplish anything He will want to do?

This lack of a full surrender to God the Father is what is getting so many Christians beat to a pulp in the playing field of life.

They do not have God’s full protection on them, and as a result, they are coming under severe attacks from demons, evil people, and just some of the natural cause and effects that can occur at a moment’s notice such as different kinds of accidents, catastrophes, mishaps, and illnesses that can hit anyone of us at anytime.

Without God’s maximum protection, anyone of us can get hit by these types of severe storm clouds. Only God’s divine protection can keep you safe and out of harms way from some of these types of storm clouds.

And the only way to get God’s maximum protection on you and your life is to come under this full and complete surrender with Him.

If you want to take this last and final step with the Lord, then I can give you a very short, but powerful prayer to go to God the Father with to come into this full surrender with Him.

This prayer should be said at least once or twice a year after you do it the first time. You need to show God that you mean serious business with Him on this, and by continuing to recite this prayer back to Him on a once or twice per year basis, you will be showing Him that you are really serious about this full surrender, and that you will continue to let Him have full control of your entire life for the rest of your earthly life.

I will give you both parts of this prayer – the initial prayer that you will go to God the Father with to make the initial full surrender, and then the second part of this prayer that will continue to keep you under this full surrender with the Lord for the rest of your earthly life.

A)  The Full Surrender Prayer

“Father,

In the name of Jesus, I now place my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life into Your hands. I now ask that You place me into Your perfect will for my life. From this moment on, I will choose to stay fully surrendered to You all the days of my life and will allow You to lead and direct my life in the direction that You will want it to go in.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

B)  To Stay in the Full Surrender

“Father,

In the name of Jesus, I continue to place my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life in Your hands. I choose to stay fully surrendered to You all the days of my life and ask that you continue to keep me in Your perfect will for my life.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

The above prayer is short, sweet, and simple, but extremely powerful! With this prayer, you have now just turned the reigns of your life over to God the Father – and He will now start to guide and direct your life in the direction that He will want it to go in. God now has a perfect plan and destiny all set up for your life.

If you would like more information on this full surrender and all of the Scripture verses to back it up, we have another article in the Bible Basics section of our site with this exact title – “The Full Surrender.”

If you are willing to make this full surrender with God the Father, then you are now ready for the next big step, and that is to learn how to Plead the Blood of Jesus for His deliverance and protection.

There are two ways that you will use the Pleading of His Blood. One is for protection – where you will Plead the Blood of Jesus on whatever you want protected before any attacks or adversity could come your way. By Pleading the Blood of Jesus on the things that you want specifically protected, you will go a long way in preventing a lot of needless attacks, mishaps, and accidents from ever coming your way in the first place. This is preventative medicine at its best.

The second way that you will use the Pleading of His Blood is for deliverance – where you have already been hit by some kind of adversity, and now you will need God’s deliverance and/or healing power to help set you free.

How to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Protection

The first thing you are going to want to do is make a personal list of everything that you would like to have God’s protection on. These are what I call the basics. I will give you my recommendations as to what some of these basic things should be. You will then have to add your own personal things to this list to properly complete it.

1. The Basics

The basic things that you will want covered under the Blood of Jesus for His divine protection are the following:

  1. Your body, soul, and spirit
  2. Your house
  3. Your car
  4. Your finances
  5. Your office – if you work
  6. Your spouse and children if you are married

Any one of these could come under demonic or human attack at any time. Pleading the Blood of Jesus on your car will help prevent you from getting into any type of serious auto accidents, along with helping to prevent any type of break-ins or theft of your car.

Pleading the Blood of Jesus on your finances will help protect you from all of the scammers and con artists who are out there trying to scam and steal all of your hard earned money. Identity theft has become a major problem in our country. Pleading the blood of Jesus on all of your credit cards and bank accounts will stop thieves dead in their tracks if they try and target you for identity theft.

Pleading the Blood of Jesus on your house and office building will help protect you against any fires, break-ins, burglaries, natural catastrophes, or any type of bad accidents.

Pleading the Blood on all of your children will help protect them from any possible abductions, serious accidents, or life-threatening illnesses. I do not have to tell you how many predators that are out there looking for their next victim. Literally a day does not go by when someone is not getting abducted, robbed or murdered.

Pleading the Blood of Jesus on your own body, soul, and spirit will also help keep you personally protected from all of the above.

I could go on and on with the number of bad things that could happen to either you, your children, or your spouse.

Bottom line – only God knows when any attack will be coming your way, and only God can protect and shield you from these attacks before they do come. And the way that you can get God to move in with His full divine protection before any of these attacks can come your way is by Pleading the Blood of Jesus on each of the specific things that you will want protected.

Here is how to specifically Plead the Blood on each of the above items.

2. Pleading the Blood on the Basics

In order to get God’s full protection on something, you have to do the following three things:

  1. Plead the Blood on the object that you want protected.
  2. Plead the Blood against whatever possibly could come against that object.
  3. Then seal the prayer with a statement of faith and belief to God the Father telling Him that you are now going to have full faith and belief that He will now protect you from all of the things that you just Pled the Blood of His Son on.

Here is a sample prayer on how to Plead the Blood of Jesus on your body, soul, and spirit:

“Father,

Father, in the name of Jesus, I now plead the Blood of Jesus over every inch of my physical body, over every inch my soul, and over ever inch of my spirit. I now plead the Blood of Jesus against any demons who may try and come against me. I now Plead the Blood of Jesus against any bad and evil people who may try and come against me.

I now plead the Blood of Jesus against any natural accidents or catastrophes that may come against me. I now plead the Blood of Jesus against any diseases, viruses, or illnesses that could possibly come against me.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I now have full faith and belief that the Blood of Jesus will now fully protect me against all of the things that I have just Pled His Blood on.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

This prayer is short, sweet, simple and straight to the point. You can add whatever else you want in the prayer that will fit your own personal set of circumstances.

You will have to Plead the Blood of Jesus on each of the above six items to get God’s full protection on it. You have to be very specific on the things that you will want covered and protected under His Blood. This is why each of you will have to make up your own personal list.

The above six items should be absolute minimums. When you Plead the Blood on the other five items, just substitute the appropriate wording on the next item that you are Pleading the Blood on. When Pleading the Blood on the basics, you can choose to either say the prayer out loud or silently to yourself, which ever way you would be more comfortable with.

3. The Index Card

What I have found to be very helpful is to write all of the above down on an index card. Here is my recommendation:

a) Take an index card and write at the top of it the words “Pleading the Blood of Jesus.” This way you know this card is for Pleading the Blood of Jesus.

b) On the front of the card, write down and number each of the items that you want protected under the Blood of Jesus. The six items mentioned above should all be on this list. Then write down anything else that you will want covered and protected under His Blood.

c) Then write on the back of the card the blood prayer itself as worded above. You can use a “fill in the blanks system” on the back of the card since you will be Pleading the Blood on different things. You can write the following on the back of the card:

“Father,

in the name of Jesus, I now plead the Blood of Jesus on …………. I now Plead the Blood of Jesus against …………….

Father, in the name of Jesus, I have full faith and belief that the Blood of Jesus will protect me against any of the things that I have just Pled His Blood on.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

On one little index card, you will have everything you need on how to properly Plead the Blood of Jesus on whatever it is that you want His protection on. You will have all of the basics as to what needs to be covered with the Blood in your life on the front of the card, and then the exact prayer written on the back as to how to properly Plead the Blood on each of those basic things.

4. Frequency

How often will you have to Plead the Blood of Jesus on all of the above in order to get God’s maximum protection on these things? Through personal trial and error with the Lord on all of this, I have found out that in my own personal life, that I have to Plead the Blood of Jesus on all of the above items on a once per month basis.

You may each have to find your own personal frequency factor with the Lord on how often to Plead the Blood on all of the above. But do not be surprised if God does not tell you the same thing – once per month.

I have personally found out the hard way that if I want God’s full protection on all of the above items – that I have to Plead the Blood on the night before the beginning of the next month. In other words, if I want God’s protection for the month of May, then I have to Plead the Blood on all of the above on the last day of April.

I have been burned several times when I forgot to do this and was subjected to several abnormal attacks on the first day of that new month. It would be like a football player forgetting to put his helmet on for even one play. Not having his helmet on for even that one play could get him killed due to the intensity of the game that he is playing.

5. Applying a Bloodline

Here is another thing that you can do, especially for those of you who own a house with property surrounding it. You can walk around the entire property Pleading the Blood of Jesus as you walk completely around it in a circle. What you are doing is applying a Bloodline around your property.

I have read of cases where Christian farmers have done this to protect their livestock and flock from attacks from wild predators. In one case in particular, a farmer was having a problem with some of his farm animals being killed by a wild wolf. He went ahead and applied a Bloodline around his entire property. When he woke up the next day, he found a dead wolf lying about two feet passed the point where he had just pleaded the Blood over the day before.

In other words, the wolf had crossed over about two feet into the farmer’s territory and had crossed the Bloodline. The wolf was stricken dead as soon as he crossed this Bloodline. The farmer had no more problems with any of his animals being killed after that one wolf had been struck down.

Pleading the Blood and applying a Bloodline around your house and property can also help protect you from earthquakes or tornadoes. There have been documented cases out in California where some Christian families had Pleaded the Blood over their houses and property. An earthquake had then hit the entire area. All of the houses in their subdivision had sustained some type of damage from the earthquake, but there was no damage whatsoever to the houses that had the Blood of Jesus pled on them by the Christian families!

6. Trains and Planes

Another area in which you can Plead the Blood on is whenever you are getting ready to get on a train or plane to go out of town. Simply Plead the Blood on the train or plane either right before you get ready to board it, or do it the night before. I do not have to tell you how many plane wrecks we have seen over the last 5-10 years. Better to be safe than sorry on this issue.

Now I will show you how to Plead the Blood of Jesus for any actual deliverance that you may need if by chance you have been caught up in a nasty storm cloud.

How to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Deliverance

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.

  1. “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)
  2. “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in POWER, and in the Holy Spirit …” (1 Thessalonians 1:5)
  3. “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in POWER.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)
  4. “… 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.

  1. “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)
  2. “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. These 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.

Recommended Reading

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:

  1. Power of the Blood” by H. A. Maxwell Whyte.
  2. The Blood & the Glory” by Billye Brim.
  3. The Word, The Name, The Blood” by Joyce Meyer.

Conclusion

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.

  1. Thank you Thank You Thank You!!! I first became AWARE of this teaching back in March 2009 and put the lesson away and completely forgot about it till a couple of weeks ago and I tell you blessed BRETHREN I have come into a greater awareness of the IMPORTANCE OF PLEADING THE BLOOD then ever before. I have begun to experience GREAT VICTORYS in my life and the loved ones that are precious to me, our finances, our possessions, etc. etc. etc. I pray the LORD would richly bless your ministry, families, finances, and that everything you touch would turn to SPIRITUAL GOLD-IN JESUS’ NAME-AMEN!!!

  2. This looks like a good article, but it is not as easy as it sounds to be, even highly complex.

    This article can actually be confusing. I must say that I do not understand a great many things.

    Power.

    Why did 11 of the original Apostles die a gruesome death? Did they not have supernatural power and protectors?

    Stephen was the 1st. Why was he not protected?

    Jesus himself was complex, while on the cross did not the pharisees themselves say, he saved others but he himself he cannot save? Of course the plan was to die and get raised, but notice the many that did not see.

    Did not Paul also have an incurable affliction?

    I’m not trying to be cynical or to be a mocker.

    God’s ways are far above mine, I just don’t want to be discouraged and I don’t want to see others lose faith because their prayers or powers from God fail them, or worse they think that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit has failed them.

    Not all request/prayers will be granted some will be left unanswered as in Paul affliction/thorn to remind us and keep us in place for our arrogance with Satan’s help will over come us.

  3. The blood of Jesus is all powerful and his blood shed for us on the cross is as effective in our lives now as the day we were born again. There is a lot of confusion regarding the Biblical way to overcome satan and the false doctrine taught by Word Faith preachers appears to be where a lot of it stems from. Scripture clearly shows us in Rev 12:11 how to overcome satan and yes it is by the blood but what does this mean? Does it mean we go around saying “satan the blood is against you” or “I plead the blood over X or Y” as if some magical formula? I believe we defeat satan by living in obedience to God’s word and this includes understanding how the blood is effective in our daily lives; meditating on and confessing God’s word and what his word says about us and our situation. This is very different to the positive confession false teaching of word of faith where they use the law of attraction philosophy to get what they desire. We are to meditiate upon God’s word and become transformed by the word (Romans 12:) not try to manipulate it to get what we want. Spiritual warfare is biblical and is not an option for believers because whether we accept this or not we are in spiritual battle. Expelling/casting out demmons/deliverance is Biblical and part of the warfare but much of what is done in the name of spirtual warfare is not.
    Let me be clear I pray for God’s protection and ask him to deliver me from a certain situation but more than repeating what sounds like some formula I pray God’s word back to him as I am led for example during prayer I may say something like the following; I believe your word that tells me that the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him. I fear and honour you almighty God, I submit totally and unreservedly in every area of my life. The word of God tells me that when I submit to God the devil will flee from me, thank you for your protection, thank for your deliverance, thank you for your provision I hide your word in my heart that I may not sin against you. I believe that when we pray as we are led by the spirit with understanding this is more effective than simply saying I plead the blood over X or Y. When I face a crisis or go through trials I pray specifically about it I ask God to heal, deliver, save, restore and in all things I submit to him. I pray that God will show me anythng that I need to see about the situation that I have not yet seen, the wisdom of God transcends our finite understanding. While the blood is definitely effective we do not have to plead the blood in this way we have God’s word we are born again we are already under the blood we go through trials, testings sickness sometimes it is because of our sin othertimes it is God allowing us to go through things. The Bible tells us we will go through persecution the way to respond is the way Jesus and the disciples did…there is no Bible reference to any of them pleading the blood in the way that many people do. I say all of this out of love for my brothers and sisters in Christ because I believe there are so many practices that the church has accepted that have no Biblical basis. Selah.

    • On the 23 February 2017 around 23how pm,was checking teachings about thethat blood and I end up reading your page,after reading everything I started with prayer to surrender and I end up with pleading the blood ,I even went outside the house plead the blood ,when I came back to the house I felt I can’t stop praying until 1 o’clock in the morning,and definitely heard a word I am rejuvenating you,immediately I took my phone and check the meaning of the word.and I understand God is healing me making me young again giving me back the former energy that I lost,from there I started having pains in my stomach,my stomach started running I rushed to the toilet and I also

  4. Awesome….this is just what I needed. God answered my prayer in directing me to this website. Thank you for your time and effort. I know how powerful the Blood is….sometimes we need to be reminded…and I was. I feel impowered and inspired by this article. We serve the one true God. He gave His one and only Son for us. I will give Him praise and glory and make a commitement to remain surrendered to him all the days of my life.

  5. God’s grace and blessing’s to all.The power in the blood of Jesus Christ need no comfirmation of man but has been confirmed by the Holy Spirit via His word that we(BELIEVERS) have in fact overcame him ,satan,(past,present, and future,whatever his endeavors are) by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony(when we speak the word of God out of our mouth in faith.With love John.

  6. Hi, I learned about pleading the blood of Jesus about 25,or 30 years ago. I attended a church that taught on this after bible study on wed, nights we would pray for hours night after night going from one persons home to another I began to have dreams on the blood one night I had a dream about wolves as well as the farmers situation walking around his property Ive done this also,but in my dream God was showing me how powerful the blood of Jesus really is in my dream I was walking through a clearing in the woods to go home after church when it began to get dark I looked up to see a pack of the most vicious wolves I have ever seen coming towards me they were going to attack me when all of a sudden Jesus spoke and look down on the ground on both sides of me was two lines of blood in the direction I was walking they kept trying to get through and they couldn’t cause of the BLOOD LINE THAT WENT WITH ME. SO WHEN YOU PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS IT REALLY DOES WORK IT CONTINUES TO WORK FOR ME 25 YEARS LATER. PLEAD HE BLOOD ITS OUR RIGHT.

  7. I have been standing for my marriage for a while now,my husband is struggling with his faith in God,yes he has been praying with me, we live in different cities. I have come across your article about Jesus Blood, I have now been pleading the Blood of Jesus over my marriage and against the other woman.Please stand in prayer with me

  8. What Reid Everling dont understand is that Jesus name is Blood. Every time you call the name Jesus – His blood is there wherever you are. The bible says, ” and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” To plead the blood of Jesus is to identify who’s blood is prevailing. This is the word of God. That is why God said in the word to “call” the name. Satan will try and use the word to deceive God’s. This is why so many people are lost. Satan is a angel of light. He sits in the side of the north of the congregation. The Devil hates the blood and he has ministers who knows the word, but thinks be to God we have the Holy Ghost living in us. The bible also says,”And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” In word means to speak, plead, pray, preach or speak in your heart do it in the name of Jesus. Jesus name is blood.
    Thank you for the artical. You blessed me my friend. I will plead the blood.

  9. It never fails to amaze me how someone who knows the word of God can try to convince the children of God to NOT use the word to help them. What Reid Everling dont understand is that Jesus name is Blood. Every time you call the name Jesus – His blood is there wherever you are. The bible says, ” and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” To plead the blood of Jesus is to identify who’s blood is prevailing. This is the word of God. That is why God said in the word to “call” the name. Satan will try and use the word to deceive God’s. This is why so many people are lost. Satan is a angel of light. He sits in the side of the north of the congregation. The Devil hates the blood and he has ministers who knows the word, but thinks be to God we have the Holy Ghost living in us. The bible also says,”And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” In word means to speak, plead, pray, preach or speak in your heart do it in the name of Jesus. Jesus name is blood.
    Thank you for the artical. You blessed me my friend. I will plead the blood.

  10. I have been reading a book about the blood of Jesus which has been helping me to realize why I have been so stressed lately. I have not been beginning in the end where “It is finished”, but relying on my own ability instead of trusting in the finished work of the cross. Somehow, I had forgotten that I was purged from dead works (self) with the unblemished blood of Christ so that I could serve the living God.

    I have been looking for a nice house on the budget of about a dime and I have some other things going on. Yesterday, I saw myself walking around the property that I believe is the one God has for us, pleading the provision for life that is in the blood confessing many of the scriptures outlined in this article. Thanks be to God that the blood of Jesus speaks better things than, doubt and uncertainty which is how I have been speaking lately. This morning the Lord woke me up around 3:30 I began to praise him and seek him about a dream I had, because in the dream I was pleading the blood of Jesus over a baby. I went online and put on some music about the blood of Jesus, and the cross of Calvary and jammed for awhile. Later, I found some index cards (at one time I used these regularly to memorize and confess scripture) in my desk drawer and set them aside, weird because I was not looking for them.

    About 2 hours or so later I decided to do a search on how to plead the blood of Jesus and found this article. When I read the suggestion of the index cards and about the farmer who applied the bloodline on his property I realized that the Holy Spirit was leading me. First to get back to using the word of God on the index cards more specifically what the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus has done for us, and secondly, in total surrender so that He may increase and in turn I may decrease. I can personally testify to the power He gives the believer by confessing who He is as taught in scripture. It is the victory He gives us through faith by believing and confessing His name, His power, His work on the cross that overcomes not just the will of self but also destroys the work of the evil one.

    God will always answer a seeking heart. I thank you for this article and I am now getting my arsenal of the word of God to begin proclaiming the living Word of God again in total surrender. The power of life and death is in our tongue. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. With a Word God spoke and it still is today. His word in the mouth of the believer cannot lose. With it we win every battle. It is His kingdom I desire to come; it is His will that must be done. Not simply willed but done!

    One of my favorite scriptures in pleading the blood of Jesus is to confess with my mouth and believe in my heart “Rev 12:11 KJV – 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.

  11. There are things that occur for a reason and sometimes they get quite strange, a few day’s ago I was struggling in my sleep, deep down I knew I was under attack from evil, I had a dream some one was on are balcony trying too get in, I awoke at 6:00am and found my twenty year old son crying on the couch, he was frightened and told me something was in the living room and was pacing about, there was a knocking sound coming from the corner where my computer is (we have lived here for 2 years and I have never heard this knock before)here was the evidence, his Grandmother called at 5:45am that’s when the knocking started, her phone number was recorded on the display.
    She admitted to us last year to being a prostitute,thief,murderer,and practicing voodoo,she has been phone harassing us relentlessly for day’s now, if ever a time came for pleading the blood of Christ it is now, please pray for us!

    • I have had the same thing knocking. I will pray for you. I am so sorry your son was crying. God Bless you both. I am not sure where mine is coming from but I believe it to be Family tied. Keep praying, casting out demons, blessing your home and breaking of UNGODLY Soul ties, Generational curses, power of darkness, vexes, hexes, powers and principalties. May God be with you All.

  12. -Pleading the blood of Jesus…is it Biblical?
    What in the world is “pleading the blood”? What does it mean and why do some Christians do it?
    Answer: A couple of reasons. It is because of the tradition of men and their lack of Biblical understanding.
    Please do not look at the title of this post and base your response on the title alone. Please read the post in its entirety to understand why “pleading the blood” by way of the examples given is not biblical. The blood of Jesus is important and this post does not dispute that. This post is about using the blood of Jesus by “pleading it” in order to get a house, job, fight enemies and etc. Some of us, depending on what church we go to, have been taught many things out of tradition, error or simply from a lack of understanding.
    Pleading the blood is often practiced during deliverance sessions and some do it to ward off the devil or evil in their homes. Pleading the blood is also done for materialistic gain. When we do this, we have reduced ourselves to magical formulas – just like when some of us “bind satan”. We don’t need to beg the blood of Christ into our houses and on our possessions or to gain more possessions. If we are truly Christians, then the blood of Christ has covered the sin in our lives. So by saying, “I plead the blood of Christ,” according to the Bible has zero effect on satan (no one in the Bible has ever “plead the blood of Christ” the way I am describing above). What has an effect on satan is our holiness, righteousness and salvation. “Pleading the blood” doesn’t mean anything (by saying it out of our mouths as if something supernatural is supposed to happen). The way to effectively defeat satan and his demons is by simply having a pure life, confessing sin before God, engaging in spiritual warfare the Biblical way and that takes care of it.
    There are some Christians that use the practice (now a cliché) of “pleading the blood” over just about everything – unsaved family members, cars, houses, children, jobs, and things they want cleansed or delivered. Just about anything gets the blood pleaded over it. But this is an unbiblical practice and just wrong on so many levels. Is this going to take us to hell? No. But we are commanded to grow in the knowledge of God. Truth adhered to, no matter how much it offends us has the power to make us free. Some of us do it with pure sincerity. It is simply the way we were taught and everyone around us is doing it. I must admit, tradition has crippled us. In a day were there is so much false doctrine we must contend for the faith as never before and be watchful else we will be deceived.
    The idea of “pleading the blood” is not even a biblical concept (by way of examples given above. Please keep that in mind when reading this post). The blood of Christ has already been plead in our behalf and it washed away our sins and made us children of God, justified and redeemed. There’s nothing else left to plead. On the cross Jesus said it is finished. Now we simply have to just believe the Gospel and obey it. Nowhere do we read of the apostles “pleading the blood”, but we do read throughout the NT that they overcame satan and trials with faith, confidence and absolute trust in the Lord.
    Where does this view come from?
    It is believed by some that pleading the blood simply means applying the blood to our life and circumstances just like the Israelite’s applied it to their door posts and were protected from the destroyer (Exodus 12). Some also believe that pleading the blood is simply the taking hold of the authority and power available to us by the death and resurrection of Jesus. Some believe it is our priesthood right. Although we are priests, Jesus is our high priest, we cannot apply the blood over any or every thing we want cleansed. The blood is applied only to those who have faith in the atonement of Christ. It is an individual’s choice and it happens only once, when we first believed. If the above views are to be believed and accepted, we must then ask ourselves as believers, “how many times are we going to send Jesus to the cross to keep crucifying Him?” Didn’t He say it was finished? Aren’t we now adopted, redeemed and justified? There is no need to keep sending Him to the cross. We cannot put the blood over people and things them or on them. This is a spiritual act and only God can do it. We can confess it until we are blue in the face, it’s not happening. We don’t have the power to save anyone/apply Christ’s sacrifice to anyone or anything. As believers we cannot resource Old Testament types and apply them to our faith. Jesus fulfilled them already. In the Old Testament motif’s, the blood was sprinkled in the holy of hollies for the people by the high priest once a year. But the objects were those set apart for the Lord, strict instructions were given by God himself on this matter. The high priest could not sprinkle the blood on anything his heart desired. This was done only on the objects God set apart in the temple. It was sprinkled on the ark and the mercy seat for their forgiveness. We see no such practice by the apostles or instructions in the epistles to do any such sprinkling or pleading of Christ’s blood on anyone (even those demon possessed). In the Old Testament it was a physical act by the priest to put the blood on the altar, not moving it from one place to another. It is the same principle in the New Testament, one cannot move it on to those people or things for cleansing by speaking, (pleading it). The blood represents the life of the person, we cannot plead His life on others. Only the high priest handled the blood to go on the mercy seat for the forgiveness of sins. In the NT, that high priest is now Jesus. Jesus is the only one who can “sprinkle” His blood, not us. We can’t physically touch it today nor can we apply it somewhere else spiritually.We are not the high priest, Jesus is.
    So, the blood was to be on the altar before God (Exod.24:6) and Moses took half the blood and put it in basins and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. Heb. 9:19-22:” For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you.” Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”
    In the NT it is now the blood of Jesus that continues to cleanse today. It cleanses all those who have faith in Christ’s sacrifice because it is eternal. There is no magical power in application of the blood for the numerous uses it is used for today (purchase of houses, cars, to make our unsaved family members do right, to keep evil away, to stop an unfavorable situation from happening, to make our church meetings successful). It was for the cleansing and forgiveness of sins. To use it in the ways described throughout this post means (let’s be honest) that we have a distorted view of its application and meaning. Christ’s blood is precious, incorruptible, eternal and holy. There is so much power in the blood of Jesus Christ. It is by His blood that we are saved and our sins are forgiven. It is by His blood that we are no longer enemies to God. We who were far off are made nigh by the blood (Ephesians 2:13). How powerful and awesome is that! As Christians we should not “plead the blood” (as if it has not already been done for us), but remember that it has already been pleaded for us on the cross well over 2,000 years ago and it is still at work even now in all of us (those who believe). We have to constantly remind ourselves of the shed blood of the Son when we are struggling with guilt. In remembering what He has already done is both permissible and effective. Now that we understand that it is done, we can repent and turn from our sinful ways and yield to God and His Spirit. God will forgive us.
    Ephesians 1:7 states, ” In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
    Scripture teaches that it is through the blood that our sins are forgiven, nothing more and nothing less. When we are overcome with guilt, we need to go back and remember the cleansing power of the blood. That is our only plea–as in a courtroom plea. In that sense, we can and should plead the blood, not by confessing or asking God to do it, but by remembering that Christ has already done it for us on the cross and understand that because He shed his blood we have forgiveness of sins. And if we confess our sins He will be faithful and just to forgive us our sins.
    Nowhere in scripture does it teach us to “plead the blood” for any other reason (wealth, gain, protection or for fighting the devil). Pleading the blood has often taken on a meaning that goes far beyond biblical teaching. It has become a magic charm that is used in a supernatural way. Truthfully, it is borderline manipulation and witchcraft. This may sound harsh, but it is what it is. Pleading the blood is never taught in scripture and can have serious implications. It puts us into bondage and error. Historically, this has been happening in every Age to Christians (in the bible, the Middle Ages and etc.). They were mixing superstitions and magic with their Christianity.
    Galatians 4:9 says, “But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, where unto ye desire again to be in bondage?”
    The Bible teaches us well how to fight the Devil, how to abide in God for protection, and anything else we need. God has already given us everything we need in His Word for life and godliness. We don’t have to resort to anything else. This is how following un-biblical practices can put us into bondage. If we don’t do it the way scripture teaches us we will not be free and it hinders us from growing in the knowledge of God. We need to stay with biblical teaching. Let me point out two of the many methods scripture teaches us to successfully have victory over the devil. First, we are to submit to God and resist the devil – James 4:7. That is, we are to resist his temptations to sin by submitting to God (casting down every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ).
    James 4:7 states, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
    In this verse, resistance is the opposite of submission. To resist is to refuse to submit, yield, or give in to. If we will resist the devil, the Lord will help us and the devil will flee just like he fled when he tempted Jesus in the wilderness. Jesus continued to resist Him with the Word. This is the example we should follow. Not something man made through tradition.
    According to 1Corinthians 10:13, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
    We must believe and practice this. Those who use this as a means to access the power of God, His protection, etc.. should really begin to re-examine this practice (and others like it) in light of scripture and learn to rightly divide the word of truth. This practice has become like a magic phrase. It is not taught in Scripture and can/does have some serious consequences (it can lead to unbelief, false faith, and disappointment). We need to remember that beliefs have consequences – good or bad. Often, consequences can be a death sentence for some. When we fall into the trap of using something as a magic solution or supernatural trinket, it brings us into bondage.
    Again, this is an unbiblical practice. The Bible contains no record of its ever being used by any apostle, prophet, or any other believer. Paul and the other apostles preached in many demonic places without once reciting this mantra. It is a vain practice that opens the door to much error, fanaticism, and spiritual bondage. It needlessly gives attention to satan, demons and highlights our lack of knowledge and understanding of the truth of God’s Word. Please don’t engage in in-biblical practices.

    • Many thanks to the website and its authors for publishing this topic, and I agree with you Reid absolutely! not one of the quotes listed can substansiate the case for such a thing as being covered in the blood/pleading the blood of Jesus. What the authors and believers of this dangerous misunderstanding of god’s purpose need to to do is strip the bible of its added chapters and verses and read the writings of the New Testament as the letters that they were originally intended to be. Peter warns that there are those that misinterpet the writings of Paul (which are hard to understand) to thier destruction. Having diligently read the writings in a language they are conversant with, they then earnestly need to come to grips with the meaning of ref. Hebrews 10 v.26 through v.29. The reason none of the recorded appeals – at least in Acts – makes mention of the blood is because reference was always being made to what was previously said to Moses ( Deuteronomy 18:18-19 ). For me this is the most important statement of the entire Bible! I do not need to plead the Blood because I can ask the Father anything according to His will in the Name of Jesus; and I can according to the Lord’s Prayer, ask deliverence from evil and to be spared temptation. To plead the blood of Jesus is to deny that Jesus is Lord! Do we want that?
      No, let us take to heart (ref. John Ch.8 v31 and 32) and find out what Jesus taught (ref. Matthew chapters 5,6 and 8 ). let us practice in all of our relationships that teaching so that we may stand before God on the day of judgement with a pure conscience, that we can truthfully say that we have heeded the Word given to Moses, and we have been fruitful in good works which follow from what Jesus taught. God Bless Reid!

  13. Hi I was asleep about 2 hours ago when I awaken by an attack of satan, I grabbed my phone and searched google for some sort of answer and I guess the holy spirit led me to your article. Your article has touched me, it has given me so much of hope, I know now that God has given us all authority over the work of satan, I want to completely surrender my life to Jesus, I have realized that the world will never give me the satisfaction that I find when I’m close to Jesus, I realize how much I love Jesus and how much he loves me. Thank you for everything, you have touched and changed my life. Leora. South Africa

  14. These articles are great I have been dealing with a lot in my 29 years
    I’ve had major surgeries, problems at work, problems getting the job I really want, etc the list goes on and on and it wasn’t till I came across this article and the one about generational curses that I realized why I was having so many issues in my life even though I’ve never had been in any trouble.
    My grandmother used to always pled the blood of jesus over her home when we left I never knew why till now and I will we praying this pray and having the blood of Jesus pled over everything that has any meaning to me.
    Thnk you and god bless

  15. I believe that the Blood of Jesus also exposes all hidden evil. To that extent, 9/11 was a prophetic occurance which exposed the intensity of evil that confronts mankind in our contemporary age. The consequent revealation knowledge has awaken the Body of Christ from its deep slumber, and spured us to live up to our divine responsibilities in these end times.

  16. I fully enjoyed the reading and the teaching of using the blood. Lately the Lord made me focus on the spirit of Jealousy, and this is just what I needed to totally illuminate this evil spirit causing havoc in our ministries, finances, family, friends and churches. I immediately got up and walked around my office, pleading the blood against every demonic force operating here. Tonight I’ll definitely take my house and use your prescribed prayers to start having victories over the attacks of the enemy. I know I’m spiritually lead to this site, as I’m in a fast for spiritual breakthroughs. Thanks for the wonderful teaching. I have already forward it to friends and family. All Gods blessings.

  17. I know this is God. I am up late and came across this site. I have been being attacked in my sleep lately. And it occurred once a began to speak for the Lord and witness to people. I will use this and plead the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth over me and my family, and place on the whole armor of God. Please pray in the name of Jesus Christ for the protection of those that minister the Gospel.

  18. Hi Mike,

    Since April, I stumbled on your website which I have been visiting ever since and I am abundantly blessed. I am equally blessing others with it. I am a Baptist and my knowledge of the Bible has been tremendously enriched, especially in the area of spiritual warfare. I have also given materials from this website or its link to some ten pastors and some laymen. I am sure they will practice these great teachings. I myself, I have been working with some men and women suffering under one circumstance or the other. I shall get back to you with their testimonies, by the grace of GOD.

    Please, send me your personal email address. I am writing from Cameroon in Africa.

    GOD bless you, Mike for this great work you are doing for Him.

  19. I have been pleading the blood of Jesus on my entire body mind and spirit and yes God is showing up I had a girl who sat next to me in school who was doing things she did not now i was aware of and i had to pray this prayer and i know i was lead by the Holy Spirit well God took care of that where i just watch but i know he fought the battle and won my teacher has not been fair to me and I went to day to God and plead the blood of Jesus that God’s will be done and he favor me in the presence of my enemies the blood the never lose it power has the victory to day I plead the blood of Jesus over my children and against every demonic and evil person that has tried to come against them with manipulation lies decoy The devil is defeated and God gets the glory because God has blessed me to come across the perfect witness that i do great exploits in his name and it start with me and my family that I can be used by God for his kingdom. Thank you giving me clearer understanding May God continue to bless you when you help his people in all you do.

  20. A friend with whom I am in ministry struggles with the pleading of the blood and where it is scripturally, and I do appreciate and understand her dilemma. If we do not have the Word to back up what we believe, then our belief system is out of order. Many of the scriptures you have quoted are the same I have been standing on, but she is not in agreement on this with me. Thank you for providing a foundation upon which we can study this out. It is very important at this time that we do come into agreement, as we have a serious ministry coming up in the Fall for which we must be prepared, physically and spiritually. kb

  21. I have been having difficulties in praying like a seroius christian. I feel am too weak to commit in prayers, i hardly take over 10 mins in prayers…yet i have strong urge to pray and pray. The situations am in warrants me to pray but i get so empty and exhausted before 5-10 mins. Is something wrong with me….am from a Catholic background and had been saved some 3 months ago but i really needed a prayer partner but all along i had been walking alone in faith and searching more information from webside.

    I did not get saved to have my problems solved but to grow spiritually and be able to walk with God and then with him, get my destiny reshaped; very bad family background, broken relations (twice where a man comes into my life and walks away after begetting a child with me), am educated but have nothing to show, low work position with low pay yet am a lady with a MA, people like cheating me financially they come to beg for help and never refund back, people lie a lot about me, soethimes get framed up over nothing……but i have decided to push them behind and move on with the search for God and getting his mercy in which my salvation shall come.

    • I think you can benefit from some professional counseling to address some issues: Low self-esteem, faulty expectations, boundaries and personal development. I’m of the opinion that for sure the blood of Jesus covers us spirituality but we are still in a sinful world ruled by the devil and his demons. we will be attacked but these attacks are sometimes allowed by God, like in the case of Job. For sure we have eternal life but we are still battling this sinful world. Respectfully.

  22. Very Very informative article, I am so glad I came across this website and this extremely anointed article. It is almost the end of March and I will begin Pleading the Blood to cover my family, self & others. I have surrendered myself to Christ and look forward to His Blessings, Protection, Healing, Deliverance and more!

  23. Everyday with God is a wonder, I have been studying and meditating on the Blood of Jesus Christ, how we christians are bound by ignorance and the devil is capitalising on this ignorance to keep us from realising what we have.

    Children of the most high God I really have to thank the Lord for Micheal for this site about how to plead the blood of Jesus.

    We all know when God instructed Moses to instruct the Israelites to about killing the lamb and how they were to apply this blood on the lintel above the door post and on the two side posts.(read Exodus 12 verses 11 to 14)

    As I was meditating it dawn on me that this represented the cross and which is the altar and when you read in Leviticus 17 verses 11 to 14 it says

    “For the life is in the blood and I have given it for you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls for it is the blood that makes atonement , by reason of the life.

    So now what happens when you plead the blood what does the blood say—-because the bible says the blood of Jesus speak better that the blood of Abel. My friend when the enemy sees that blood on whatever you have pleaded the blood on the blood says” The price has been paid in full and the debt cancelled (see Colossians 2 verse 14)

    Jesus Christ has poured out His Life for us and has obtained for us victory over the devil and his demons and our victory is guaranteed. All we need to do is to enforce that victory. We are spirit beings and if you remain victorious in the supernatural (spirit) then you will or you are guaranteed victory in your natural world.

    The problem with many people who do not believe in the pleading of the blood of Jesus they look at this from the natural point of view and we cannot see or receive our spiritual blessings from the natural but we do receive our natural blessings from the spirit. Let us look at Ephesian 1 verse 3 it says God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly realm.

    We must not ignore the power in the blood, with your natural eyes you will not see or understand the power in the blood but demons and witches they know and see it.

    So people there is no demon in hell that can tempt to cross that blood line because they know what happened

    Trust Him and Believe Him (Romans 3 verses 24 to 26) He is the Lord and He sustains everything by His Word. Continue to Plead the Blood and enter the His rest

  24. Hi Mike,
    That’s a very good article you’ve written, it’s blessed me. I have a book on the blood of Jesus that I didn’t see listed here, it’s “The Blood – Entrance Into The Supernatural” by Rona Spiropoulos, who is a lady who had much revelation about the blood of Jesus when she had a supernatural visitation and she was baptised in the Holy Spirit. I haven’t seen a book quite like it and it’s blessed me so much, I just thought I’d mention it to you, if you don’t have it now. I have one of the books you’ve mentioned and am going to buy the other two books as well.

    God bless you, “on earth as it is in heaven”
    Karen

  25. There is POWER in the blood of Jesus and in the Name of Jesus as the bible says that before the name of Jesus Christ every knee shall bow down and confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord. However many christians live a defeated life because when they see the storms of life the forget the word of God which is the sword of the spiri. Never focus on the report of the evil but the report of God then you shall OVERCOME ALL THE TIME NO MATTER THE SITUATION.We need to nurture the new birth and grow in our faith in the Lord. Remeber when trials dont come we wont be able to measure the level of our faith.
