Pleading The Blood Against Alcoholism

I just had another real good story called in once more showing the unbelievable power of Pleading the Blood of Jesus against something specific.

A woman I used to work with called this in. When she first told me about it, I had no intentions on passing this story around due to the very personal nature of what had occurred in it. However, after she told me what just happened, she literally asked that I pass this on to the rest of you.

She said if this story could help others who may be having the same type of problem she was, that she would be all for releasing this story, as it once more dramatically shows the power of intercessory prayer, especially when combined with Pleading of the Blood of Jesus against something specific that you want taken out.

Here is her story and how fast God answered her prayer.

The Testimony

About 6 months ago she told me her marriage was in trouble and that she was thinking about at least separating from her husband. I had met her husband several times and he is a really nice guy and they seemed to be very compatible. The news of her marriage being in trouble really shocked me.

She then proceeded to tell me that the source of their marital problems was that her husband had been abusing alcohol for the last 8 years and things were going from bad to worse. It was really starting to affect his health. He was starting to prematurely age and his entire family was really starting to worry about him. They were all afraid he was literally going to die.

He apparently had been suffering from unexplainable, panic-anxiety attacks and started drinking to try to alleviate these panic attacks. The alcohol obviously did not work and just made things worse. This woman had been trying to get him to go to counseling but he would not do it. She said her husband is a very proud man and does not like to admit defeat or weakness in anything. He is also a real outdoorsman and literally cannot stand to be cooped up inside for too long of a period of time.

I think he was afraid to go to counseling for fears that the doctor would want to have him admitted for the alcoholism. One of his doctors had him on some medication to try and alleviate the panic attacks but the medication was not working. With the medication not working to alleviate the panic attacks, with him being too proud to admit defeat to go to any type of counseling, and the abuse of the alcohol continuing on an everyday basis, my friend was at her wits end and did not know what else she could do to stop all of this.

When she first told me about this 6 months ago, I told her if all else fails on trying to get him to counseling – to try “standing in the gap” for him with God, Plead the Blood of Jesus against the alcoholism and any demons who might be behind the scenes influencing him to continue to drink, and then to ask God to move into the situation to break this addiction off him and to get him cleaned up so she would not lose her marriage over it.

I told her that since her husband had no real working knowledge about spiritual warfare and how to use it in a real life combat situation – that God would honor her standing in the gap for him and that she could go on the “offensive” by Pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against the alcoholism. I told her to do it in secret, that she did not have to tell him that she was going to pray for him.

Six months had gone by and with there being no improvement on this situation, she decided to try and Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against his abuse of alcohol to see if God would move in with His deliverance power to get him to clean up his act and set him free from this horrible addiction. Here is what happened after she went into the gap for her husband.

They were set to go out of town on a vacation on a Monday afternoon. My friend decides to pray and Plead the Blood against the alcoholism the night before on a Sunday night. She went ahead and Pleaded the Blood and asked God to move into the situation to set her husband completely free from the alcohol.

The next morning on that Monday, they were sitting at the breakfast table. They were due to leave for their vacation that afternoon. Then all of a sudden her husband looks at her and asks her if she really wanted to go out of town on this vacation. He then proceeds to tell her that he has better things to do than to go on this vacation.

My friend then tells him that this vacation will probably do him good and that he needs a break from all of the work that he does. She then asked him what else does he have better to do than to go on this needed vacation.

He then looks straight at her and says that he knows that he has a real problem with his drinking and that he now wants to do something about it before he loses his marriage with her. He then proceeds to tell her that he would be willing to have himself checked in and have the doctors and counselors work with him!

My friend said she just about fell out of her chair. She had been pleading with this man over the last 8 years to get professional help and he would not do it. She then goes on the offensive, Pleads the Blood of Jesus one time, and then asks God to move in on the situation. Twelve hours later, her husband all of a sudden has a complete change of heart about the entire matter, decides he really does have a drinking problem and that he does need professional help.

Mind you, her husband is a very proud man, does not like to admit defeat or weakness in anything, and cannot stand the thought of being locked up for any length of time. By having himself admitted to an alcohol rehab center, he knows he is going to be locked up for at least 4-6 days. All of this goes against his normal behavior patterns.

That is the typical length of stay at a rehabilitation center, while some centers even offer longer treatment periods.

Within 12 hours after his wife Pleads the Blood of Jesus against his alcoholism – this man all of a sudden has a complete change of mind on his drinking problem and is completely willing to have himself checked in, when over the last 8 years he had refused to accept any type of help. Coincidence? I don’t think so. This complete turnabout within 12 hours shows how fast God can move on certain situations.

My friend then proceeds to have him admitted to an alcohol treatment center. He was in there for 6 days and had no physical withdrawal from coming completely off the alcohol. After he gets out, he tells his wife that he does not want to lose her over his drinking problem and that he will try and defeat it. He said he saw quite a few people in the treatment center that had completely lost everything as a result of their drinking – their families, their marriages, their jobs and all of their friends.

He felt like God was showing him that this was the road that he was traveling on and that if he did not clean up his act, that he too would lose everything like some of these people had done.

He has had no drinks since he has come home from this 6-day stay. However, he did tell his wife that the desire for the alcohol was still there and that he was still tempted to want to drink. I told her the next step is to Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against the desire to drink. God has to take out the desire for the alcohol. If He does not, then her husband will continue to battle his temptations to drink and could easily slip back into it.

When God completely delivers someone from alcohol or drug abuse, He usually takes out the desire for the drugs or alcohol. Testimony after testimony from people who have been set free from drugs or alcohol all say the same thing – that when God delivers them from their addictions, He totally takes out their desire for the alcohol or drugs. If He didn’t, the temptation would be too great and too strong and many of these people would fall back into their addictions.

Hopefully, this powerful move by God will stick and he will not go back to his drinking. I feel if my friend Pleads the Blood directly against the desire for the alcohol, then God will finish what He started and will have completely set this man free from his abuse of alcohol that had been going on for the last 8 years.

Again, another powerful and dramatic testimony once more showing how powerful Pleading the Blood of Jesus can be if you are willing to go on the offensive with it like this woman did.

This resonated with me. I had been a drinker for over 40 years. The last 10 being the worst and most debilitating with all kinds of physical problems. In June of 2017 I lay my face on the floor and committed myself to Jesus with complete surrender. He delivered me from alcohol and took the desire away. I praise His Name because He has developed a wonderful relationship with Him and a reconciliation with my family. Jesus delivers and sets captives free!
