DIVINE PROTECTION IN THE BLOOD COVENANT by Dr. Brian Miltenberger
When you plead the Blood of Jesus you defeat the devil and destroy all of his weapons.
KJV And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…
NIV They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…
NLT And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony…
ESV And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…
Jesus gave us power to destroy all of the power of the enemy. The devil cannot hurt or touch you when you use the power of the Blood of Jesus.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give to you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Jesus shows us that the enemy is out to destroy our lives but He came to give us life to the fullest.
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows) (1 JOHN 10:10 AMP).
Jesus gave us dominion over storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, car accidents, injuries, robberies, bullying, and anything else that would try to harm us. It is important that you as a believer exercise your dominion DAILY over the enemy.
I never drive my car unless I first cover it with the Blood of Jesus. My children go to School covered by the Blood of Jesus. My wife is safe everywhere she goes because is covered by the Blood. The more faith you have in the Blood of Jesus the more power the Blood will have to protect and deliver you.
Below is a confession for you to speak in faith over yourself and family:
CONFESSION OF PROTECTION
“I am an overcomer. I overcome the devil by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony. I plead the Blood of Jesus over me and my family (spouse name and the names of your children).
I plead the Blood over all my church family. I plead the Blood over my house, over my car, over my workplace, school, neighborhood, and city.
We dwell in the secret place of the Most High, We abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
And we say of the Lord, “He is our refuge and our fortress; He is our God, and in Him we will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver us from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover us with His feathers, And under His wings we shall take refuge; His truth shall be our shield and buckler.
We shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at our side, And ten thousand at our right hand; But it shall not come near us. Only with our eyes we shall look, And see the reward of the wicked.
Because we have made the Lord, who is our refuge, Even the Most High, our dwelling place,
No evil shall befall us, Nor shall any plague come near our dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over us, To keep us in all our ways. In their hands they shall bear us up, Lest we dash ou foot against a stone.
We shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent we shall trample underfoot.
Because we have set our love upon Him, therefore He will deliver us; He will set us on high, because we know His Name, JESUS.
We shall call upon Him, and He will answer us; He will be with us in trouble; He will deliver us and honor us.
And with long life He will satisfy us, And show me His salvation.”

EZEKIEL 28:12, 14-16 3X “perfect”
12 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. 15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you. 16 “By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones.

HEBREWS 10:1-3; 14 perfected forever by the Blood
1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.
14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
- We are not perfect, but we are perfected forever by the Blood of Jesus
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
- Jesus has dotted every “I” the great I AM; and crossed every T; finished work of the cross
13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
- Have a “Blood Conscience” and not a “Sin Conscience”
“For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God”
“ and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”
