When the angel of death was passing over Egypt, the ONLY households he couldn’t touch were the ones covered by the blood of the lamb. (Exodus 12)🩸

The Lord had instructed the Israelites to take a lamb that was without spot or blemish, slaughter it, and fill a bowl with its blood. 🐑

But the blood of the lamb had NO POWER to protect them if it was left in the bowl. 🥣

It had to be APPLIED.🩸

The people were to take a bunch of hyssop leaves and apply the blood to the doorposts and lintels of their house. 🌿

As long as the blood of the lamb was applied over their household and they remained under that blood, the Destroyer could not touch them. 🏠🩸

Under the New Covenant, Jesus is our Passover Lamb. (1 Cor 5:7)🐑

His blood has been poured out for our salvation, healing, protection, preservation, safety and peace. (Eph 1:7) ✝️

In a sense, it is “in the bowl”. 🥣

But for the blood of Jesus to have any power to save, protect, heal, or deliver us or keep us in peace, it HAS TO be applied.🩸

Revelation 12:11 tells us, “The accuser of the brethren (the devil)…has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.”

The devil was defeated (cast down) at the cross, but we are still responsible to ENFORCE his defeat when he attempts to steal, kill or destroy. (Lk 10:19, Jn 10:10) 😈

And the way we enforce his defeat is with the word of our TESTIMONY – by TESTIFYING of what the blood of the Lamb accomplished for us. 🐑🩸

We have to APPLY the blood of the Lamb over our household with our MOUTH. 🗣

We testify: “Satan, you are defeated and I enforce your defeat in Jesus’ name! You cannot touch my household. You cannot touch our health, our finances, our marriage, our children, our covenant of protection or our covenant of peace, because the blood of Jesus PAID FOR our healing, our provision, our protection, our safety, and for our peace! 

We testify of the promises that are ours because of the blood of Jesus:

🩸No weapon formed against me or my family shall prosper! (Is 54:17)

🩸No evil befalls us and no plague comes near us! (Ps 91:10)

🩸In our pathway there is life and no death! (Prov 12:28)

🩸A thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand but it shall not come near us! (Ps 91:7)

🩸We are blessed and highly favoured and we prosper wherever we go! (Prov 3:4, Jos 1:7)

We remind the devil that he was defeated by the blood of the Lamb and ENFORCE his defeat by testifying of what the blood of Jesus purchased for us. ✝️🩸

The destroyer CANNOT touch a household where the blood of the Lamb has been applied!⛔️ #faithtalks
