Abide, Anoint, and Plead the Blood of Jesus
There have been many different plagues throughout world history, as you know. There are many Believers who believe that plagues are a sign of the end times. While it is true that 2 Timothy 3:1 states that in the end times we will experience hard and difficult times, I would like to respectfully remind you that there have been plagues and pestilences historically documented throughout world history.
This also involves further understanding of the anointing and applying the Blood of Jesus as we war against pestilence, against "the devourer" and war against the "thief" that comes to kill, steal and destroy.
I have written extensively on how to remain hidden in Christ and how to plead the Blood of Jesus over our lives in my recent book, Power in the Blood: Claiming Your Spiritual Inheritance. In this book you will discover the many different truths concerning the power of the Blood of Jesus to protect you from the plans of the enemy. If you have received prophetic promises, you will want to read how to plead the Blood of Jesus over every portion of your "land" that has been given to you! I also remind every Believer how "every knee must bow to the name of Jesus" and yes, this means the name of pestilence!
The word "hidden" in this previous passage is a verb which means "to conceal, hide or kept secret by covering." This means that when we are covered by the Blood of Jesus, we are hidden in Him. There are several obvious benefits in this place.
Change? Why? Well, because God is calling many of us to repentance, and repentance involves "changing the mind." What does this have to do with the anointing?
Everything! First, many of us, including myself, have not fully believed that God desires to grace us and empower us to walk in our Godly authority. Unfortunately, we have failed to fully trust God, believe in all that He says about us and therefore, possess our spiritual inheritance.
Take a moment and read the parable in Luke 5:36-39. You will read about how necessary it is to be a pliable wineskin. The story behind this parable is simple – one cannot remain an old wineskin to receive and contain new wine.
As divine strategy is given concerning God being our protector (and all the revelation in Psalm 91), we need to shift into agreement with His directives.
To be prepared, we must allow ourselves to be dipped in the water of His Spirit and rubbed with Heaven's oil to soften our hearts and remain flexible. Our hardened and dried hearts must be changed into soft and pliable vessels – ready for the new wine.
Walk through your home place and pray that God will cover each door or your house with his anointing oil, and claim the blood of Jesus for protection over all who enter (and exit) through its doors.
