    Please click on the above link to read through that article, it is very informative and I was led to find it by the Holy Spirit, I have no doubt about that.

    THE POWER IS IN HIS MIGHTY NAME.In that time we can cast out demons and make them leave our homes.We tell them to go in the name above all names.JESUS CHRIST and take there dumb thoughts with them.They must go.
    That name has power to heal and many things.We have the right to use it!

    Act 3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
    Act 3:7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
    Act 3:8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

    Act 3:16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

    I went to the link. Very interesting information. Pleading the blood is something I have heard of, but not really sure about. I understand the power of praying in the name of Jesus. And I pray to the Father for protection over my home and family in the name of Jesus often. but have not actually plead the blood of Jesus, actually saying those words. Does this make a difference? It seems ritualistic to be walking around the property and praying this type of prayer, If I ask God for something in the name of Jesus, isn't it given to me as it says in the book of John? I am willing to hear more of others responses on this subject. It is something I basically am not familiar with and I am willing to learn as long as it is biblical and accurate.

    It is really incredible to think that hurricane hit areas, all the homes are wiped out all but one. And that one standing is the one where the family is Christian. The farmer who prayed and plead the blood of Jesus around his property, and the wolf was found dead on the perimeter of his property and no harm came to his livestock.

    I don't find it ritualistic sister. Rather, when I think about it, I find it specific. If you read the whole article you will see that the author mentions that we are opposed, in a battle with dark forces, it is mentioned in the Bible as well.

    The thing is, people are fighting against evil spirits and principalities, but they have no known defence. Prayer and the Armor of God is a must have defense and this article has helped me grow in that defense.

    I found it extremely hard to pray for my enemies. Some of my enemies include some of my close family members, as funny as that may sound, it's true.

    I have however been pleading the blood of Jesus over all my enemies, friends and close family and I've found that the words just flow. It's almost as if pleading the blood of Jesus has connected me more with God, I don't have trouble finding the words to pray for my enemies any longer, because it humbles me inside to plead the blood of my Saviour over them.

    It's good that you ask questions though sister and I hope you receive more input.

    God bless
    Much love

    Thanks Teraside,
    so I have a question what if there are two Christians parents, both are true followers of the Lord.

    Both have a son each and the sons are going on a potentially dangerous journey.

    One Christian parent prays to God for protection and safety of their son in Jesus' name.

    The other Christian parent pleads the blood of Jesus against any harm or danger to come upon their son.

    Does this make a difference, because of the prayer? Is God going to honor one over the other? Does pleading the blood of Jesus gives that extra edge of protection over the heartfelt prayer of a parent who loves and trusts God.

    This is what I am not sure of what all this means.

    :love:Calluna

    Of course?
    God looks at the intent of the HEART[spirit]
    He sees what we are trying to do and say!
    The purpose means much!
    A child might say?
    food ,tummy hurts,hungry. eat .rub there tummy,many actions ot words.
    Still we know what the child needs.
    But,Personally , I think we should be using the name of JESUS CHRIST!

    My plain answer sister. I don't think God will allow one to be harmed and the other not, based on the prayer, but that is up to God to decide.

    God does show favoritism however, Jesus, David and Abraham to mention a few are an example of that.

    Like I said in my previous post. This method of prayer helps me become humble and therefore I am in agreement with it. But to answer your question, the name of Jesus, does include the blood of Jesus, even if it was not specified.

    God bless
    Much love

    Jesus saves

    We sing the song,
    There is Power..... in the precious blood of the lamb
    We sing
    Oh the blood of Jesus, that washes white as snow

    There is power in the blood, I love the link Teraside.

    When you plead the blood you're asking for a covering. God looks at the heart when you pray, he already knows what we need.


    when people say the blood of Jesus, in no way does it replace Jesus Christ.
    Everyone's pray is personal and carries a different tone of expression.

    The blood of Jesus was shed ONLY for HUMAN BEINGS.not for the safety of their possessions but for the remission of their sins.Their is no scriptural backing for the pleading of the blood of Jesus on things or situations.Throughout the new testament, mention of the blood of Jesus was made in relation to forgiveness of sins and ancillary matters(e.g. atonement) Hebrews9:2 for example tells that without shedding blood their can be no remission of sin - building a premise upon which Christ's life and death(d shheding of His life blood) was based(pls read the whole chapter).
    Note also what Christ said at the ordination of the holy communion (the last supper). He said 'each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which seals the convenant between God and his people. It is POURED OUT TO FORGIVE THE SINS OF MANY'.
    In argument for the pleading of the blood of JC some have cited the smearing of blood on the door posts at the first passover(exodus 12). Note however that there was no smearing of blood at subsequent passovers feasts. These were done in remembrance of the actual passover as God had commanded. Note also that the smearing of blood was authorised by God himself(ex.12:7).
    There is only one way by which we are to come to God and that is by the name of Jesus. The blood is already before God (Hebrew9:12- 'once for all he took blood into that Most Holy Place, but not the blood of goats and calves. He took his own blood, and with it he secured our salvation forever.'). The believer in Christ as a result can boldly enter God's presence at any point in time (Hebrews10:19-20).
    As for the property and situation of the believer, he is safe in the bosom of the Father. No hair falls off his head without the knowing and approval of God his Father. The psalmist inspired by the Holy Spirit said

    Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    Psa 91:2 I say of Jehovah, My refuge and my fortress; my God, I will confide in him.
    Psa 91:3 Surely *he* shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the destructive pestilence.
    Psa 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou find refuge: his truth is a shield and buckler.
    Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, for the arrow that flieth by day,
    For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, for the destruction that wasteth at noonday...Psa 91:9 Because *thou* hast made Jehovah, my refuge, the Most High, thy dwelling-place,
    Psa 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
    Psa 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge concerning thee, to keep thee in all thy ways:
    Psa 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    Psa 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and the adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under foot.
    Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.
    Psa 91:16 With length of days will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.'
    God will always listen to and protect his children because he loves them(john 16:25-27). He has given him peace that passeth all understanding. A peace that transcends all turbulence amongst other things. We are enjoined to be still and know th He is God.Scriptures also tell of what the armour of God is.(ephesians6:13-18)


    Note also that Christ said that we will as believer be faced with diverse trials and tribulation but we should be of good cheer because He has overcomed the world already. all we have to do is diligently await his return.

    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.


    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 :wink: :wink:

    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

    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.:shade:
