Colossians 1:13 (NLT)
13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,…
Praise the Lord Beloved. Recently I was asked what “pleading the blood” meant.
This is an awesome question.
Beloved, pleading the blood is actually a legal term. Think of it like a lawyer pleading his case before the judge. He presents evidence and facts to support his/her case. In the Old Testament, 1 Samuel 24:15, and Psalm 43:1 gives us 2 great examples of this term.
Beloved, when the accuser says we’re guilty, our plea before God, the Righteous Judge, is the blood of Jesus. It changes everything. In Hebrews 8:6-7, 9:11-14, 22, 12:24 you’ll find that the blood of Jesus established a new and better covenant between us and a holy God. The blood is our defense. It declares we’re not guilty but free from all penalty of sin. The blood also gives us the authority and dominion to resist Satan and put him out of all the affairs of our lives and our families’ lives.
Beloved, because of Jesus’ sacrifice at Calvary, the devil has no legal right to interfere in our lives anymore. He says we’re guilty!!! We “plead the blood!!!” When you have a chance, look at what James 4:7, 1 John 3:8, and Luke 10:19 says.
Beloved, we have every right and provision to walk in victory through the precious blood of the Lamb. Every day you have the right to exercise that authority by pleading what the blood of Jesus has done for you.
So today Beloved, refuse to give the enemy even one small inch of territory. Satan is a defeated foe and through the precious blood of Jesus we’re victorious!!!
“To God Be the Glory!!!”
