Father, I come in
the name of Jesus Christ to plead His blood on my life and on all that
belongs to me, and on which You have made me a steward over.
I plead the blood
of Jesus Christ on the portals of my mind, my body, (the temple of the
Holy Spirit), my emotions, and my will. I believe that I am protected by
the blood of the Lamb which gives me access to the Holy of Holies. This
is Your word and Your word is true.
I plead the blood
of Jesus Christ on my children, on my grandchildren and their children,
and on all those whom You have given me in this life.
I plead the blood
of Jesus Christ over all my animals as well. Lord in Your word in
Genesis 1:26 You gave humans dominion over the animals of the earth. For
they are our friends and companions.
Lord, You have
said that the life of the flesh is in the blood. Thank You for this
blood that has cleansed me from sin and sealed the New covenant of which
I am a partaker.
In Jesus Name,
They are to
take some of the blood and smear it on the sides and top of the
doorframes of the houses where they eat the animal.
But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses
where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This
plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Don’t you realize
that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and
was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,
things were all in place, the priests regularly entered the first room
as they performed their religious duties. But only the high priest ever
entered the Most Holy Place, and only once a year. And he always offered
blood for his own sins and for the sins the people had committed in
ignorance. By these regulations the Holy Spirit
revealed that the entrance to the Most Holy Place was not freely open as
long as the Tabernacle and the system it represented were
still in use.
This is an illustration pointing to the present time. For the gifts
and sacrifices that the priests offer are not able to cleanse the
consciences of the people who bring them. For
that old system deals only with food and drink and various cleansing
ceremonies—physical regulations that were in effect only until a better
system could be established.
Christ Is the Perfect Sacrifice
So Christ has now become the High Priest over all
the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more
perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is
not part of this created world. With his own
blood—not the blood of goats and calves—he entered the Most Holy Place
once for all time and secured our redemption forever.
Under the old system, the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a
young cow could cleanse people’s bodies from ceremonial impurity.
Just think how much more the blood of Christ
will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the
living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered
himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Leviticus 17: 11
for the life of the body is in its blood. I
have given you the blood on the altar to purify you, making you right
with the Lord. It is the
blood, given in exchange for a life, that makes purification possible.
1 John 1:7
But if we are living in the light, as God is
in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of
Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.
They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the
livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that
scurry along the ground.”
Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author
and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord
Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed,
ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
