I have ministered to many around the world by personal letters for decades, and in these letters are hidden tidbits of manna, and mixed in with the every day counseling and answering letters are hidden crumbs of wisdom, and hidden secrets of the scriptures, and hidden thoughts of the LORD as He ministers those things each believer needs to hear, words of comfort, and sometimes even rebukes, coming from the Spirit of Prophecy as the Holy Spirit answers troubled hearts and weary minds with a touch of the bread from heaven. This treatise is formed from bits and pieces of some of the letters that the manna from heaven might be given to all who believe, and some are literally, bitter, green figs, hard truths and new. These are treasures from the Holy Spirit, pearls from the Kingdom of Christ Jesus, precious fruits from the Tree of Life.

Chapter 61 The Power of the Blood

I would like to share with you how I came into the knowledge, the reality and physical knowledge of the power of the blood of Christ. Jesus said, Except ye eat of my flesh and drink of my blood, you have no life in you. From this we know that the life is in the blood, and the power is in the blood, and if we are in Christ and He in us, His blood and His power is in us. These things we believe and have knowledge of by faith. But faith is an illusion until it becomes a reality. And truth and reality agree.

Almost thirty years ago, I had occasion to rent a house, a huge farmhouse in Pennsylvania. There were several of us at the time, sisters in Christ, and we were founding a ministry for the housing and caring of women and children in Christ that were overcome by the cares of this world and needed help, financially, spiritually and physically. We began with gathering together in Christ and leasing a farmhouse. When we found the house, it was filthy, garbage piled to the ceiling in the kitchen and food storage areas, and the house needed cleaned from top to bottom. This we did, a room at a time. In one of the upstairs bedrooms, we found closets full of unclean sexual booklets, and magazines, of all manners of filth’s and pictures and both of homosexual and lesbian contents, as well as many other satanical booklets. We took them all outside and burned them up.

We were settled in, a clean house, and suddenly there began to appear manifestations of a spiritual nature. I would hear footsteps up and down the stairs, loud steps, and I would smell coffee vapours, and would go downstairs to get some coffee and see who was up and ready to do the daily chores. No coffee! No one up! These manifestations continued daily for weeks.

Then in a clean, spare bedroom that was ready for someone to occupy that needed help, there appeared huge flies on all the windows. We would kill them and shut the door and the next day, there they were, back again. I would kill a fly on the window and it would immediately come right back to life. I would kill one fly and two appeared. They started to accumulate in closed up rooms that had no entrances.

So we began to pray, and we sought the Lord. And we rebuked the spirits in the house that we knew had taken up residence in the house. Still the manifestations appeared and increased in their severity’s till voices became audible. You, get out of here! This is our house! Our cats even began to be found on the front porch with holes in their necks where they were slain and the blood sucked from them. Horrible!

I was totally frustrated and ready to give up the fight and find another house, even after all the financial and physical effort that was put into that farmhouse. I was praying to the Lord and He said, Put a blood mark over the doors, every door that enters in and out of the house. I said, Lord, how do I do that? He replied, Simply puncture the tip of your finger and put a drop of blood over every single door. Just do it! We were all Spirit filled daughters of Christ, and it did not surprise me when the Holy Spirit said to put a blood mark on every door. So all of us simply obeyed the Lord and began putting a mark over every single door.

We were not even finished doing what the Lord said to do when such noises began to be heard from the attic to the basement and back up again, and wailing, and screaming, and the doors began to bang open and shut and wailing such as I never heard in my life filled the whole house. Wind gusts violently pushed past us as we were still doing what the Lord had told us to do. The house vibrated with the gusts of wind and the screams and wailings from hell itself as spirits and demons and devils exited the house with a violence. The quietness that came after that can no tongue tell, and the stillness could my own mind not comprehend. We looked through the house and the flies were gone, and all the voices were gone, and the house itself seemed to know its deliverance.

I know therefore, that not only does the Spirit of Christ dwell in me, but His blood itself flows through my veins, as does every truly born again child of God. Since that time, I have not rented, or owned, or dwelled in a house that is not marked over its every door with one drop of blood. It assures me that the house is cleansed. There’s power in the blood!

When the judgment angels are sent from the throne in heaven into the world, they shall see the blood over my door and the plagues and judgments and wrath’s they are sent into the world to smite all flesh with, shall not come nigh to my dwelling nor to any of those children of the LORD that abide with me. The power is in the blood. The blood of Christ that flows through the veins of His children in this earth, is a living blood, and it has power over every principality and evil devil and demon and even over satan himself. The seal of the living God, the blood of Christ Himself, has entered into this earth in His Bride, and shall destroy all of satan’s kingdom, if but the children of the LORD could know and learn and apply the truth of the power of the blood!

It is written . . . . lst John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

There are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If you have the Spirit, you have the water of life, and if you have the Spirit, you also have the blood. Be believing and not faithless. These three are one, the spirit, the water, and the blood. They are one. If you have one you have them all, and if you are lacking even one, you are lacking them all, because they are one. The Spirit, the water and the blood are one. If you have been given Christ, you have His blood flowing through your veins, and it is full of power, POWER! Knowing this, I put one drop of blood on my own forehead and marked myself with the bloodmark of Christ. I sealed myself with the drop of blood, and shall and do to all who desire to be sealed by the blood of the living God that flows through any and all who are in Christ. Hidden manna, a bitter fig, is the truth concerning the blood of Golgotha that is the power of the resurrection and the life, and immortality.

Rev. 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 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.

And they overcame him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb, by the blood, by the blood, by the blood. There is power in the blood! Just do it!
