As I was on my way home from shopping, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said…
…“Becky, you need to take a picture of the dead snake on the street at the end of your driveway and write a blog about how you plead/apply the blood of Jesus over every inch of your property daily.”
I then understood that this was a prophetic sign of what was happening in the spiritual realm. What do I mean by that? I believe that the dead snake (My son-in-law said he believed that the snake was a poisonous moccasin of some sort) represents satan. The snake (satan) could not enter my property line because I had applied the blood of Jesus over every inch of my property.
Revelation 12:11 (AMPC)
11 And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].
How does this apply to you?
You too, as a born again believer have the God-given authority to apply the blood of Jesus over your life and everything connected to your life…which includes your property.
I grew up hearing the words, “I plead the blood of Jesus over”. I believe a better translation is to say I apply the blood of Jesus or I put the blood of Jesus on people, situations and things. Why do I believe that? In Exodus 12:7 (AMPC) concerning the Passover, God instructed the Children of Israel to “take of the blood and put it on the two side posts and on the lintel [above the door space] of the houses in which they shall eat [the Passover lamb].” Notice they were to PUT IT ON. Verse 13 says, “The blood shall be for a token or sign to you upon [the doorposts of] the houses where you are, [that] when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt.” Sadly, the people who did not apply or put the blood on their houses received the death of their firstborn. I suggest you take time to read Exodus chapter 12.
The New Testament is far superior to the Old Testament (Hebrews 8:6)! In the New Testament, Jesus became the faultless sacrifice for us. Just as a lamb’s blood was required during the first Passover, Jesus’ blood had to be shed so that any type of death that attempts to steal from your life has to go! When the Children of Israel applied the blood of a lamb to the doorposts of their homes, it was a type and shadow of the Blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God, applied to the doorposts of our hearts.
It is imperative that you realize the price for your sin was paid for on the Cross by the blood Jesus Christ. Why? So you can have the assurance that your sin is forgiven and when you die you are going to heaven. So that you can have assurance that when any attack of the enemy comes to steal, kill or destroy you (John 10:10)… and the attack will come, you know what belongs to you! Healing: spiritually, physically, mentally and financially belongs to you!!!
Romans 10:9 (AMPC)
9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
The word “saved” is the Greek Word “sozo”. The wonderful fact is you are not only saved from sin and on your way to heaven. The word “sozo” also means:
· To save from injury or peril
· To make whole; be whole
· Restore to health
· To preserve one who is in danger of destruction
· To save or rescue
As a child, I was told I had nothing to fear from satan, because satan cannot cross the blood line. When I apply the blood of Jesus over something or someone, satan can’t touch me, them or it. There is power in the blood of Jesus to protect, provide for, heal and deliver you, those you love and everything connected to you!
You Are Royalty through Jesus Christ!
Romans 5:17 (AMPC)
17 For if because of one man’s trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
You have been given the divine authority to rule and reign as a king in this life! You are royalty! You don’t have to rely on your own righteousness which would exclude you. You have been given the free gift of His righteousness! Hosea 4:6 says God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. You’ve been given awesome knowledge! So start right now taking your God-given authority and rule and reign as a king in this life! Begin applying the blood of Jesus over:
· Your property
· Your situation
· Your body
· Your mind
· Your family
· Your transportation
· Your neighborhood
· You fill in the blank _______________
