It gets a little trickier when pleading the Blood against something that may have already come against you. These are what I call battle situations.

You or someone else may have just been hit with a life-threatening illness or disease such as cancer. You may know someone who is an alcoholic or drug addict and they can’t seem to break free from it. You may know someone who is severely depressed and they are seriously contemplating suicide. Another person may be under severe demonic attack as a result of engaging in some type of occult activity.

There are a million and one things that could come against anyone of us at any time. If something has already come against you and you are caught in its grip, then you are going to have to go on the offensive and try to take it out by Pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against it!

When you run across a situation that will need God’s power to deliver you, you will usually need some kind of battle strategy in which to war against it. The person may not be saved and you may have to get them saved before God can move into to deliver them. Another person may be saved, but not walking in a full surrender with the Lord, and you may have to get that person to commit to making a full surrender before God will move in to help him out.

This is where the Holy Spirit is really going to be coming in big time. Depending on the kind of predicament you are dealing with, you will have to be guided and led by the Holy Spirit as to how to handle each one of these battle situations. Each one of these battle situations are completely unique and different. No two battle situations are ever alike. This is why you are going to have to be heavily dependent on the Holy Spirit on how to handle each one of these battle situations.

Too many Christians are way too passive in their approach when confronted with any type of severe adversity. The Bible tells us that all Christians carry the full power of God on the inside of them through the Person of the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us that we are all soldiers of Jesus Christ. If God is telling us that we are all soldiers of His Son Jesus Christ, then this means we all have God’s power at our disposal in which to engage and defeat any enemy that may try and come against us.

‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)

This one little verse should be memorized by all Christians. In one powerful sentence, God is telling us that things get accomplished not by our power or by our might, but by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • “But you shall receive POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
  • “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in POWER, and in the Holy Spirit…” (1 Thessalonians 1:5)
  • “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in POWER.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)
  • “… in mighty signs and wonders, by the POWER of the Spirit of God …” (Romans 15:19)

These verses are talking about the signs and wonders that the early apostles walked with. These verses are specifically telling us that all of the signs and wonders that were done by the early apostles were done by the power of the Holy Spirit. And if we all have the same Holy Spirit that the early apostles did, then we too are capable of having God manifest His power to us through the Holy Spirit like He did with them.

The Bible tells us that God is no respecter of persons – which means what He will do for one, He will do for another.

  • “And with GREAT POWER the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.” (Acts 4:33)
  • “I CAN DO ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
  • Notice the word “all” – that there is nothing that God cannot do through you or for you if He chooses to do so.
  • “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy, and NOTHING shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)

I am repeating this verse once again. Again, notice Jesus is telling the apostles that they will have His power to defeat all of the power of their enemies and that nothing shall be able to hurt them! This verse should burned into all of our memory banks so that we never, ever forget who we serve and follow in this life and how powerful our Lord really is!

This one verse is telling us that we all have God’s supernatural power and authority operating through us. We just have to learn how to walk and flow with God’s power that has been made available to all of us through the Holy Spirit.

Now on to the actual personal testimonies, so you can get an idea on how to Plead the Blood of Jesus when you will need it for a real life combat situation.

One more thing. In order to be able to receive forgiveness from the Blood of Jesus for any of your sins, there is something that you must do. You must first confess the sin to God, and then God will grant you His forgiveness. It is the same thing for the deliverance and protection that is in the Blood of Jesus.

In order to be able to receive God’s deliverance and protection from the Blood of Jesus, there is something that you must do. And that something is “Pleading” the Blood for the protection or deliverance that you are looking for. As you will see in each one of these stories, the Blood of Jesus had to be specifically plead against whatever the nature of the attack was.

The Pleading of Jesus’ Blood in each one of these cases was incorporated into what I call a battle prayer. These battle prayers are extremely powerful and extremely effective when properly worded and prayed out. In all of these cases, complete deliverance and victory came about very quickly.
