Plead The Blood

Given Spring 2004
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;" Revelations 12:11 I heard someone speak on, "pleading the blood" over their kids each day for their protection. That sounded like something I should be doing too. During prayer that morning, I was doing just that, not really knowing much about it except that there is power, protection, and life in the Blood of Jesus.

But I was reminded of the time in the Old Testament when God instructed the elders of Israel through Moses and Aaron to apply the blood of a lamb to their doors so they would be protected. "Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you." Exodus 12:21-23

Now, the way I see it since that day, is that I am the elder of my house. I plead the Blood of the Lamb over my family for protection each day. By doing that, I see myself standing at the door with the Blood on it, directing my family inside. I call them by name as each one comes in. I include everyone; my immediate family, their spouses and kids, my Mom, my brother and his family, my wife's family, anyone I consider a part of my family. And you know, I even include the girlfriends of my unmarried sons. If they're with my boys, they can benefit from being a part of our family! I usher them all in and close the door! Inside, we are safe and protected from whatever bad stuff that's going by outside.

I don't really know what has "passed over" us while we were inside but I do know that God is watching over us and we are in His hands. What a comfort!

Excellent idea. My kids and I put on our spiritual armor every day on the way to school. I believe we'll incorporate that as well. I'm enjoying your articles very much. Thank you.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I was extremely frustrated and upset when I wrote the entry that you read. I've been taught for a long time (I was raised in church all of my life) that there is power in the blood of Jesus and so my family has always used that to ask for God's protection so that we will be shielded from whatever evil may come our way. I was encouraged to read your blog and I will continue to plead the blood of Jesus each day. I can say that things have gotten much better and I am not so angry and frustrated now. :) I will stop by your blog more often now that I know it exists. :) God bless!

One thing that stood out to me in your post is that we aren't sure what has "passed over". I try to thank Him often for just that. We will probably be amazed at that revelation when we get to Heaven, don't you think?

May God bless you, your family, and your ministry!

I found this blog because I Googled the term “pleading the blood of Jesus”. I grew up in a charismatic Christian home and my Grand parents were in the deliverance ministry. I remember hearing them say while praying “We plead the blood of Jesus” but I really never knew what that was. This was very helpful thank you.

Beind a Jewish believer, I understood the importance of the Passover Lamb but didn't understand WHAT it means TODAY and HOW to plead the blood. I am reading a book about the blood of Yeshua (Jesus for the gentiles)and it mentions pleading the blood but not HOW TO DO IT.

Your blog was most helpful. May the L_RD G_d of Iareal bless you according to Gen.12:3
