The Blood of Jesus Christ is an expensive weapon made available to every believer in Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ paid such a high price to secure this weapon for us; a price so high that the Bible refers to this weapon as precious. 1st Peter 1:19 says: “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”
As you understand the worth of this weapon, you will appreciate the power it can unleash on the enemy; No wonder the kingdom of darkness cannot stand the power in the Blood of Jesus. To eliminate all doubt, a loud voice expressly declared from Heaven the victory of the saints over Satan himself through the power of the Blood, 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.”
The Blood of Jesus is not only there to cleanse you from sin but also to protect and defend you. However, if you are not a Christian, although the Blood is available, it is not for your use. If you belong to the devil as described in John 8:44, you cannot use the Blood to overcome him. The Blood must first translate you to the kingdom of light by cleansing and washing away your sins before it can become a weapon in your arsenal. Also Blood plays a vital role in your body; it delivers nutrients and oxygen as well as hormones and other substance to the cells and takes away carbon dioxide and other waste products. Blood, is the protector of the body; it fights illness and diseases. It is the body’s front line defense against germs, bacteria and harmful micro-organisms. Greater the value of the thing sacrificed the greater the value and power of its blood. Blood of animals has value, but blood of men is greater. Then the blood of the apostles, of martyrs, the blood of Jesus is the most valuable.

And to overcome there are certain rules of engagement or guiding principles through which you engage with these things, the outcome is that which God has ordained.

This means as you follow these rules and walk by these guidelines, the power of the blood will give you victory over Satan.
