In this message, I am going share a topic on “HOW TO HAVE TOTAL PROTECTION” from any evil work assigned against you by using powerful scriptures to pray.
The Bible teaches many weapons of warfare believers can use to protect themselves. In 2 Corinthians 10:4 we read the following scripture:
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every hiygh thing that exalteth itselwor toe of Christ;
Here the scripture shows us clearly that we can use spiritual weapons to pull down strong holds set up by evil spirits and the principal method is to use scriptures to pray to pull them down. The scriptures in the Bible reveal to us the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Word of God is one weapon we can use. The Bible calls it the “Sword of the Spirit”. Another powerful weapon is the “Name of Jesus”. When this Name is used, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
There is another very powerful weapon we can use. I call it the “Atomic Power” of God. This is the “Blood of Jesus” as written in the Bible in Revelation 12:11 “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“. To use the Blood of Jesus to pray, we must first know and understand what the “Blood of Jesus” can do for God’s children. We must know why the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, had to pour out His Precious “Blood” for us. Once we understand them, we must next take an important action, and I repeat a “very” important action to apply the Blood on ourselves, our family and all our possessions to keep the evil forces away! I have read about how believers, Church Leaders, and even Pastors, lost their lives and possession, simply because they failed to know, understand the “Power Of The Blood Of Jesus” and take action to apply, the Precious Blood, on themselves, their family, their homes, their businesses and work, and their possessions. They suffered such losses unnecessarily because of their lack of knowledge of the scriptures regarding the teachings on the Power of the Blood of Jesus!
Spiritual weapons therefore is the principal way showing believers “How to have total protection”.
Another important thing believers must pay attention when reading the Bible is to pay attention to the past and present tense of the scriptures. How many believers know the difference between Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24. The “SECRET” I have discovered is that three (3) little words (which believers can miss if they did not pay attention to them) in each of these 2 scriptures. Let me clarify as follows:-
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes “we are healed”. Here the 3 words are “we are healed”.
1 PETER 2:24
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. Here the 3 words are “we were healed”.
Do you notice the difference between the 2 scriptures, one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament?
Let me explain further:-
Notice the word “are” used in the Old Testament and the word “were” used in the New Testament! Do you now see the huge difference?
You see, in Isaiah’s time, the Messiah was prophesied to arrive one day in the Future. Therefore the word “are” was used to point to a future date!
In St Peter’s time, Apostle Peter used the word “were” to point to the past, meaning our healing has already taken place, on the body of our Lord Jesus Christ when His body was hung on the Cross.
Yes, amen and amen, by His stripes we were healed!
Now you see the big difference, isn’t it? So the next time you pray for healing, say:-
“Thank you Lord, by your stripes, we were healed because Lord you gave us our healing now for today by taking upon yourself all our sicknesses and diseases. That is why you show us in Galatians 3:13-14 (see below) that by taking the curse upon yourself, we, your children can partake of the healing and wholeness for ourselves, spirit soul and body”.
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
I trust you now are able to see the difference between the same scripture, one quoted in the Old and one quoted in the New. This is how accurate the Bible can be if we take time to read, study and meditate on the scriptures.
So, go on to read up, study and meditate on all the scriptures revealing to us about the great awesome “Power” of the precious Blood of Jesus.
