Thankfully, more and more believers throughout the world are discovering the power of applying the blood of Jesus. And it is more crucial now than ever for us to understand how to apply it.
I’ve already mentioned that during the Passover the children of Israel were commanded to take a branch of hyssop and, by faith, apply the blood on the lintel and two side posts of their houses.
Job did exactly what God instructed him to do under the Old Covenant, and God placed a hedge around Job (Job 1:9-10), showing that the blood covers these five areas:
- Your house and family
- Your possessions and property
- Your endeavors
- Your influence
Job regularly made a sacrifice and applied the blood (Job 1:5), and the results echo throughout history.
So must we do under the New Covenant, but the sacrifice has been made once and for all through Jesus Christ and His shed blood.
However, there is a major, life-changing difference. In the Old Covenant, the blood was applied with the hyssop plant. In the New Covenant, we apply the blood by speaking it and through prayer.
The apostle Paul said, “We also believe and therefore speak” (2 Corinthians 4:13). Just as the Bible says we have “the power of life and death in our tongue” (Proverbs 18:21), our words—especially as we pray and apply His Word to our lives—are the applying force.
The faith-filled believer’s voice is a powerful weapon of war as we appropriate all the benefits of the cross of Jesus Christ, including redemption, cleansing, reconciliation, sanctification, forgiveness, protection, access, dwelling in God’s presence, and ultimately victory!
When you apply the blood, the anointing follows you, your house and family, your possessions and property, your endeavors, and your influence!
It is only under the blood of Christ Jesus, through faith, that believers can be victorious because we are free and safe from the enemy.
Apply and activate the blood through your voice as you pray, make faith-filled confessions, and speak God’s Word, His Scriptures, over your life.
More than ever, we must understand that believers are given God’s promise of protection and favor through applying Christ’s blood to every area of life!
God desires the best for you. No matter what is happening in your life today, He wants to build a powerful legacy.
Apply the blood! Pray! Confess the Word!
Because you are a covenant believer, God has promised to care of you, even when you face challenges, as you trust in Him.
