Many believers today misapply scriptures by praying that they themselves cover themselves at their own will with the BLOOD of the Messiah to protect themselves from evil, attacks and so on. Some say they got power to apply the blood onto themselves and other people for healing. It is not any man that applies the blood but YHWH to cleanse us from sin. It is YHWH that cleanses us from sin and not man. Some sickness that come as a result of sin go away after sin is cleansed by Blood applied by YHWH not by us while some sickness (e.g. for Job) is not as a result of sin. Even if you say that you cover yourself in the blood but you don’t allow the blood, through confession & repentance and faith, to cleanse you from sin that is vain. Satan has access to anybody through sin. When we are harbouring sin we are not protected from Satan. YHWH cleanses us from sin after we confess and repent of sins. Even if we say, “I cover myself in the blood” if you are harbouring sin, that does not work because you got to confess and repent then YHWH cleanses you from sin then you enjoy benefits of being free from sin like healing, salvation, protection, etc. It is not you that has power to apply the blood of the Messiah upon yourself. It is YHWH that cleanses you from sin using the blood of the Messiah. If someone needs to be healed simply say, “Be healed in the Name of the Messiah”. No man has power to apply the blood because it is YHWH that does that. The following are uses of the blood of the Messiah bearing in mind that remission or cleansing us of sins is the ultimate purpose of the blood: 1. CLEANSING OR REMISSION OF SINS Mat_26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 1Jn_1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. Rev_1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 2. RECONCILIATION WITH YHWH Eph_2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 3. ACCESS TO THE HOLIEST PLACE Heb_10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 4. COVENANT Heb_12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Heb_13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, POINTS TO NOTE a) Some preach to say that you yourself can apply the blood on yourself without confession and repentance. Such make people believe that once you apply the blood onto yourself then your sins are expelled without confession and repentance. b) These also teach that you can cover yourself under the blood of the Messiah by simply mentioning, “I cover myself under the blood of the Messiah”, and these make people believe that the blood will cover you permanently to protect you from attacks of Satan. Is it you to cover yourself under the blood? What is the purpose of the blood? Such make people believe that the blood will be around you permanently such that no evil shall have access to you. Does this mean that even when you sin, sin gets expelled automatically without confession and repentance? c) No man has power to apply the blood of the Messiah upon themselves or on others at their own word of command. d) No man has power to cover themselves or others under the blood of the Messiah at their own word of command. e) Many think that since the children Israel applied the blood on door posts for an angel of the Lord to by-pass them that they can also using their own will, strength, power and word of command, apply the blood of the Messiah or cover themselves under the blood of the Messiah.
f) YHWH protects you using His power and Hedge that He puts around you like the hedge that was around Job which Satan asked YHWH to temporarily remove for him to access Job’s body and his assets. (Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Job 1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.) g) Therefore, Just ask YHWH to protect you and how He protects you is up to Him. You do not need to give Him details how He should protect you just like you do not have to give YHWH details on how He should heal you; just ask Him to heal you and the how is up to Him. h) Application of blood is the role of YHWH while our role is to have faith, confess our sins and repent. i) Did not YHWH send His Word to heal? (Psa_107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.) Jer_17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Mar_5:23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. Luk_7:7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. Jas_5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Act_14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, WHO MADE ATONEMENT FOR US? Heb_3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; It is the Messiah that made Atonement for us and not any man or woman that makes atonement for anyone or for themselves. Rom_5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Exo_32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin. Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Heb 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
