Plead The Blood?

     In these last days, when the modern day churches are still so filled with the unbiblical traditions of men, rather than just worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ according to his word, one of the errors that is being practiced in the religious circles today which, to this teacher, stands out as perhaps the most offensive to God Almighty, is the blasphemous practice of "pleading the blood"...
 
     By this act (which is neither taught nor practiced anywhere in the Bible), those who believe they are Christians think themselves to be causing the blood of Christ to be used for protection, salvation, or otherwise blessing, upon other people or situations, or against an enemy, by the supposed act of "pleading" it with a vocal command; very much as if they had that blood in a spray gun, and were able to just shoot it at whatever target they wanted to for whatever reason they thought good.

Where did these people get the idea that they could do this? Or even that it would be a good thing for them to do?

 
     They do it because the DEAD denominations they belong to do it; and death does as death sees: in other words, those who feed on dead bread (the vain traditions of the organized Laodicean churches) are as blind as those who feed it to them (their false teachers and seminary-bred pastors). And so, as the blind lead the blind, both fall into the ditch, all the while believing that they were on their way to the kingdom; except that their belief was not from the word of God, but rather from the teachings of men...

Let us look at the word of God,

and see what it says about the blood of Christ.

  1. Leviticus 17:11
  2. "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar  to make an atonement  for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."
  1. Matthew 26:28
  2. "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
  1. Romans 3:25
  2. "...through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past...
  1. Romans 5:9
  2. "...being now justified by his blood...
  1. Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14
  2. "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins..."


     It should be clear by these passages from God's word that the blood of Christ Jesus was shed for one reason only: for the

remission of sins.

Period.

 
     And the Bible tells us very clearly how to receive the remission of sins which was bought for every man by that blood---
 

"Repent, and be baptized every one of you

in the name of Jesus Christ

for the remission of sins..."

Acts 2:38.

 
     That's it. The blood of Christ is precious (1 Peter 1:19); and it was poured out in selfless, unequalled love for the purpose of redeeming the sons of men from their sins; NOT for the unlearned to go around "pleading" it all over everything and everybody as if they could use it to save, heal, or deliver people at their will, to make their organizations look as if they are really doing a great work for the Lord!
 
     Christians have an all-powerful and victorious weapon to use against the enemy (Satan). This weapon may be used rightly and without fail against sickness, disease, lies, addictions, heresies, sorceries, and every stronghold of the Devil. We see it used by Jesus, and by his church, all throughout the New Testament of the Bible. This weapon is the WORD OF GOD and the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! 
 

  1. Luke 10:17
  2. ”…Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
  3. Mark 16:17
  4.  “…In my name shall they cast out devils…”
  5. Acts 3:6
  6.  “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
  7. Acts 10:38
  8. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil…”



     The “sword of the spirit” is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17); and it is the offensive weapon we have been given with which to assault the strongholds of the enemy. And the power of his word is-

his name!

  1. Psalm 138:2
  2. “…for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”
  3. John 14:14
  4. “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.”

 
The SWORD is the offensive weapon, and the NAME is the authority that makes it effectual…and that is the power that the Lord Jesus has put into the hands (or mouths) of his saints.
 
     You can “plead the blood” against the devil all day long; and he will only laugh at you and continue to devour, just as if you were threatening him with a crucifix, or garlic, or a silver bullet… you are merely repeating the rhetoric of the religious deceived, and that rhetoric is called in the Bible, “doctrines of devils”(1 Timothy 4:1), because that is precisely where it comes from! Devils have put “rubber swords“, if you will, into the hands of the lost, apathetic, deceived multitudes of the modern churches, so that they are no threat to them at all anymore! 
 
     Imagine how much you could get away with if you were a devil, and you had successfully replaced the real swords in the hands of your enemy with rubber ones…how much would you fear them now? That is precisely how much the devils fear the half-hearted, lukewarm, fake Christians of the Laodicean churches today, who run around in their misdirected zeal (for they know neither the Lord Jesus Christ nor his gospel), screaming, “I plead the blood against you, Devil!” These false soldiers are ajoke and a mockery among the ranks of the powers of darkness; they are no threat at all…just entertainment for the wicked one and his hoardes…
 

That is the lighter side of this tragedy.
