How to Apply the Blood of Jesus

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death (Revelation 12:11, KJV).

The blood of Christ is the antidote to sin, a nightmare to Satan, and a blessing to humanity. To benefit from Jesus’ blood, we must apply it to our lives, families, and circumstances.

First, the blood of Christ that works for us is not His physical blood. We do not apply the blood by spreading physical blood on our doorposts (like the Passover) or sprinkling blood like the Jewish ceremonial system.

We also do not apply Christ’s blood by saying, “I plead the blood,” a strange Christian tradition that has negatively impacted the understanding of many believers. To learn more, watch “Why I Stopped Saying ‘I Plead the Blood.’

The Bible teaches us that applying the blood of Jesus involves believing in its power to cleanse us from sin or crush Satan’s head. Consider the first time the blood of Jesus was applied in our lives—when we accepted Jesus as our Savior. Numerous sins were forgiven, and unquantifiable filth was washed away. The blood made us pass from death to life, from Satan’s territory to God’s kingdom.

We applied the blood of Jesus in our lives at salvation by believing that Jesus died for us and that His blood was shed for our life. As we apply the blood at salvation, we will apply it in any circumstance post-conversion. In these situations, there is no need for hidden Old Testament rituals or fancy Christianized words. We sprinkle Jesus’ blood or drink it today(John 6:53,63; 1 Peter 1:2) by believing and standing firm on what He did for us on the cross.

    Thank you so much Dr Patrick for availing yourself. You don’t know the effects of these teachings on us. we are being delivered from benign rituals that has been passed on to us. Now, I don’t even understand the essence of the anointing oil we pour on ourselves. Can you please teach us on that as well?. Thank you and God bless you!
