    I have to agree with oyinkansola and spirit1st..there is no scriptural basis for "pleading the blood"...we are sealed with the Holy Spirit.


    Eph 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight


    Eph 1:13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

    Too many Christians could not pray their way out of a paper sack if they got caught in one because they have never established any kind of personal relationship with God, have never developed any real working knowledge of His Word, have no 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.

    Statements like this trouble me...there is also NO scriptural basis for needing "working knowledge" in order to pray "effectively"...all statements like this do is knock down the faith of babes...who would kneel before God in simple faith...with no knowledge to speak of...

    I ask, how many times did Jesus say "According to your faith be it done to you" ?
    Now name one time Jesus asked those who came to them if they had the "knowledge" to receive anything from Him?

    Jas 5:15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

    Jas 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

    1Co 2:4 And my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

    Dont depend on paint brushes and knowledge and formulas...(these are just smoking guns by another name) ... be filled with the Spirit...have faith...


    Luk 18:17 "Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."

    Hi there, greetings in Jesus name, May the God of peace Himself lead you into all peace everywhere all the time.

    One of the best earthly examples I have heard about pleading the blood of Jesus goes something like this:

    The trial was nearing it's end and the judge asked the man "how do you plead, guilty or not guilty?". "I plead NOT guilty your honour, I plead the blood, I plead NOT GUILTY"

    Because of the blood we are NOT guilty, we are innocent in the eyes of God. But I also believe that as one gets closer to our Father, He reveals his manifold wisdom and mysteries to us. Many a time the Lord has revealed things in much more detail than there is in the Word, and the Word always backs these revelations up, anyway.

    There is so much power in the blood only because it was Jesus's blood, there is power in the blood FOR MUCH, there is power in the name FOR MUCH.

    Depending on where we are with God in our personal relationship with Him, we are shown more and more, Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things that you do not know.

    Sometimes these revelations are just for us, alone. Sometimes they are for us to digest for awhile before we share them, and sometimes they are for everyone at once.

    Remember our Holy Spirit will ALWAYS lead us into all truth. Many a time a person is lead into religeon and not taught how to have a personal relationship with Jesus. We are told - do these 5 steps to salvation and these 8 steps to prosperity and we do them, and do them 'riligeously' and in parrot fashion (instead of just straight from the heart) then wonder why they're not working, get frustrated, slack off and...enter danger!!!

    I speak for myself here, I copied what others were doing for many years and kept backsliding and began to believe a most treacherous lie, that this christianity stuff actually doesn't work!! But I knew in my heart there WAS something and have never stopped calling on God and FINALLY I have entered in.

    I also began to question about pleading the blood of Jesus and have since learnt to ask and ask and ask and ask the Holy Spirit "what's up with this Holy Spirit, what's going on here, which way do I go, is this from you, is this for me, do I bring this into my life now or do I relax about?

    Where God is there is change, Where God is there is protection, where God is there is prosperity, where God is there is the ability to forgive, where God is there is the ability to endure, and many many more things. Hebrews 13:20 For it is God who instructs me and teaches me in the way I should go, He will council me and watch over me - Lead on Spirit of God lead on!!

    Blessings to you all my brothers and sister round the globe and may we all be blessed with great wisdom and insight and be filled to overflowing with His Spirit in Jesus name - amen

    Ooops meant Psalm 32:8 It is God who instructs me and teaches me in the way I should go. He will council me and watch over me - amen

    Hebrews 13:20 Now may the God of peace who through the blood of the eternal covenant, brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will and may he work in you what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and ever - amen

    Soon, very soon, we who are serving, and confessing Jesus from the hearts, will be filled with the knowledge of Him, with accurate knowledge in unity - amen :groupwave:

    Thank you

    I just read your Words from God about Pleading the Blood of Jesus. Thank you! I cried! I Prayed! I made note cards with scriptures and verses from your sermon. Thank you for sharing. I did go to the testimonies. I read some of them not all of them yet. My favorite testimony was the Inner Healing (the vision of God's Hand) I loved that. I have also had that gut stomach feeling many times. sometimes I have listened and sometimes have not I will always listen to that now now that I know that it is the Holy Spirit. I know many times I would have been better off listening to that gut feeling. Thank you for your obedience to the Holy Spirit. God Bless you mommabear

    Too many Christians are living defeated lives with no real joy, peace or power in their lives. Storm cloud after storm cloud keeps coming at 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 got caught in one because they have never established any kind of personal relationship with God, have never developed any real working knowledge of His Word, have no 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.
    Amen! I remember being a new Christian and having people tell me "just read your bible and go to church". No other information. I was supposed to glean everything else from the weekly message. It was not enough help. New Christians should be told that they will be attacked because they are new Christians.

    I think anything that gets people to repent, and pray to our loving Father in heaven (which you do before you plead the blood), and that causes us to use the name of our saviour Jesus Christ to repel evil (pleading the blood) cannot be bad. I don't know if pleading the blood is necessary in all situations, but I think it is really helpful in shedding some baggage from our old lives. Even just reading that article helped me to remember some things that I needed to repent of and be cleansed from. That is not a bad thing.
    Repent each day to the living, Holy God who will in His infinite mercy forgive you.
