Understand The Blood by Elaine Davenport (Tuesday, April 1, 2008)

WHEN YOU PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER A SITUATION; YOU ARE PLEADING LIFE OVER IT AND TO IT!

LIFE! LIFE! LIFE!

So many people don’t understand the Blood of Jesus. However, it is important that we do understand.

In the beginning days of the bible as God’s people began to live on their own away from the garden they learned the importance of the blood.

Leviticus 17:11, “..the life of the flesh is in the blood.”

Life is precious to God. When I had life saving surgery six years ago, they held up the surgery for two hours trying to prove the “suspicious” tissue to be cancer. It wasn’t, but as a result of that endeavor…I needed a Blood transfusion. I have rare blood so the doctors had to find someone with blood that matched mine in order to save my life. The shedding of blood for God or in His presence means a lot to Him.

The people of God used to offer sacrifices and they were gifts, ways of showing thanks and love. Additionally, the blood offering represented life. Offering the blood offering through an animal symbolized the giving of one’s own life. It’s important that we remember this.

The best animal; without blemish and innocent was given in exchange for the sin of the men or the women.

When Jesus came, he had to meet the same standards. He was the best, without blemish and innocent and gave himself in exchange for the sin of men and women as a finality.

Do you see the comparison?

Hebrews 9:22, ‘And according to the LAW, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness’.

Blood was also used to make a covenant.

BEFORE ABRAM MADE A COVENANT WITH GOD; HE MADE A BLOOD SACRIFICE. God didn’t tell Abram to bring one animal; He told him to bring five! Abraham didn’t wait two months either. (hello?) He did it right away.

That night, Abram fell into a deep sleep and the Blood Covenant was sealed!

You believer, have a Blood Covenant with God. You are protected by the Blood. And you are to make a demand on the Covenant when you need to. You have a covenant of salvation…that is your free pass to the Blood Covenant that was made with Christ’s own blood. That covenant alone gives you authority!

READ GENESIS 15 HERE; GOD DID A POWERFUL THING WITH ABRAHAM!

LIFE! LIFE! LIFE!

There is power in the Blood! There is life in the Blood!

How Do You Plead? by Elaine Davenport (Thursday, March 20, 2008)

I had no idea what Pleading The Blood of Jesus meant in order to explain it to someone…I just knew it was real; but couldn’t put it into words.

Have you been in a courtroom? I have. When a case comes up before the court; the Plantiff stand on one side and the Defendant stands on the other side and the judge sits at the front on a bench and asks: “How does the defendant plead.” More than likely if you are the defendant you aren’t allowed to even speak for yourself. You have to hire someone to speak for you. The law is supposed to be just but we often hear stories of people who’ve been found guilty of a crime they didn’t commit.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY!

HALLELUJAH!

When you wake up everyday…you can’t see it…but the accuser of the brethern who is Satan waots to accuse you and bring harm to you. But you can plead the Blood of Jesus before he even gets started.

Pleading The Blood is like saying: I’m innocent, I’m protected and pass over me right now.

IF THERE IS A CASE AGAINST YOU OR AN ACCUSER COMING FOR YOU…THE BLOOD OF JESUS CANCELS, OVERRIDES AND STOPS IT ALL!

That’s why you hear so many people praising God for the Blood!

You can plead the Blood over almost anything; let’s look at some things:

Health, Your Needs, Spouse, Family members, Parents, Children, Friendships, Bank Accounts, Taxes, Marriages, Cars, Houses, Spiritual matters, Your Ability to understand, Your Prayer Life, Your Business, Your Decision making and the list goes on.

I plead the Blood over my bed every night and I sleep soundly.

YOU’LL SEE A DIFFERENCE:

Financial miracles, Healing, Families healed, less accidents if not totally eliminated, better grades for children, better behavior for children, greater focus for all that you pray for, favor for you, new beginnings.

PLEADING THE BLOOD TO ME IS LIKE I AM USING A SPIRITUAL FORCE: A WEAPON AND I DON’T INTEND TO PUT IT DOWN!

Please make a note of this and put it into practice!
