“Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” (Hebrews 12:4 ASV)
This scripture can be taken literally because in bloodline prayer we declare war and strive against sin unto the blood. We release the redemption of Jesus Christ in our blood and our DNA because they still contain record of iniquity and false covenants all the way back to Adam.
It is our experience that a few requirements need to be fulfilled so that we can successfully receive the redemption for our bloodline. The following points are things that are regularly presented in the courts of heaven by the accuser. In case we do not meet the requirements, the entire process comes to a halt. Consequently, God cannot release a verdict on our behalf, even though He desires to do so.
In those cases, the result is not dependent on the power of God but on the fact that we did not meet the requirements. God created orders and protocols that allow Him to bless us when we stick to them.
Orders and protocols are spiritual laws such as “the wages of sin is death.” This is a universal law that God established. The consequence of this law is that God cannot reward sin with blessing, no matter how much He would like to reward us. If we have sin in our lives and allow it, we inhibit God from blessing us.
The following requirements should be met as spiritual law and foundation:
First of all you should be able to positively answer the question: Do you believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and the Holy Spirit and that there is no other God but Him?
But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, even to them that believe on his name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:12-13).
Being born again is the core foundation of going to war victoriously against the enemy and against iniquity in our lives. God does not allow any other gods besides Him. Not because He is egoistic, but because He does not want His greatness to be debased, just as He does not want in regard to His love, grace, mercy, power, might, glory, and righteousness. Because he is the one and only God and all others are liars. This is also the first of the Ten Commandments:
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me (Exodus 20:2-3).
In John 1:12-13 we see why being born again is so important. Being born again confirms to us that we are not primarily made from natural blood, but we were born of God. We have then become a new creation; old things have gone and new things have started.
Through our salvation we laid our corner stone. It is the prerequisite to no longer be judged according to our flesh and adamic blood, which is full of iniquity and negative covenants, but according to the new creation in Jesus Christ.
Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever (1 Peter 1:23).
In case you have not received Jesus Christ in your life yet, but you would like to decide to live a life with this wonderful King, you can do that using the following prayer. Pray out load:
Gracious Father, I come before You as a sinner who needs salvation and redemption. I ask Your forgiveness for my sins and my ungodly lifestyle. I have come to believe that You have sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and rose again after three days, to save me. I believe that salvation doesn’t come any other way but through Jesus Christ alone. Jesus, I open my heart to You and I ask You to dwell in it and to become the Lord of my life. Holy Spirit, I invite you to lead and guide me to live a godly, holy, and sanctified life in peace and joy. Father, I thank You that You are in my heart now and that I am Your child. Amen.
Were you baptized after you purposefully decided to believe in Jesus? Baptism is another step and requirement to lead a successful Christian life.
Salvation causes us to be born again—old things have passed away. When we get baptized after intentionally deciding for it, we bury the old life in the death of Jesus and get a resurrection in the life of Jesus Christ. Because covenants can only be resolved by death, baptism is not only a confirmation or a symbol of your salvation, it is essential so we can walk in the newness of life.
I have mentioned above that God created man in His image and likeness, but all following generations were begotten in the image and likeness of their forefathers. As this is the case, it is important to return to the first state of creation.
Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection (Romans 6:4-5).
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him (Colossians 3:9-10).
The word for “likeness” in Romans 6:5 is the Greek word homoioma. This expression is used in the Septuagint in Genesis 1:26 for the expression of “likeness.” This also applies for the word “image” in Colossians 3:10. Both scriptures confirm that we are being returned into the original state by baptism, being made into the likeness and image of God.
Personally, I do not know another instruction that God has given us for this but baptism. Baptism is not just a symbol; it is a powerful blessing from God to release power and creational order in our lives. Baptism withdraws the right of the accuser to accuse us with our past and the iniquity in our bloodlines. However, in some areas we have to actively enforce this through bloodline prayer.

Repentance and Forgiveness
Are you ready to repent and to receive forgiveness?
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
What a wonderful call. We have unlimited access to the throne of grace, to find grace and help in time of need.
The throne of grace is a term that comes from the Old Testament and describes the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies. It is the Hebrew word kapporeth. Kapporeth is derived from the root word kaphar, which means “atonement or repentance.” So if we boldly come before the throne of grace, we do not come empty-handed. We come with repentance and a heart ready to repent. It is a reflection of greatness and strength to be able to ask God and man for forgiveness. There is a lot of truth in the saying that we should not trust nor follow a person who cannot admit their own mistakes or ask for forgiveness.
The Greek word for repentance is metanoia, and it describes the process of a change of mind or turning to the opposite direction. It means that we have to decide for a lifestyle of repentance. This does not mean that we mainly confess our sins, but that we are adapting a lifestyle in which we align ourselves with the will of God.
Are you prepared to forgive other people?
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen (Matthew 6:11-13).
This scripture is an excerpt of the best known and possibly most often quoted prayer of all time. It is called the Lord’s Prayer. What a tremendous asset and treasure it is! Tertullian, one of the church fathers from the second century, rightly said that the entire gospel is summed up in it. It is so clear that its message even makes sense to children. But it is also so deep that it brings the greatest teachers of the Bible to reverence and awe.
One of the messages it contains is that our sin should be forgiven just as we forgive our debtors. This binds us to forgiveness.
You need to live a lifestyle of forgiveness. Be like your heavenly Father, who is slow to anger and great in mercy and forgiveness. In my opinion this is one of the foundational premises to protect us from every root of bitterness that would like to sprout and become a stumbling stone to us.
Priority: The Kingdom of God
Are you ready to give up things for the kingdom of God? Jesus lived a life of self-sacrifice; He has exemplified this way of life for us. We have been called to live the same kind of lifestyle because the Word of God says that to give is more blessed than to receive.
It may be your perception that things are taken away from you when you give them up. But the opposite is the case. Whenever God requires something from us it is merely because He has greater foresight than us. He sees blessings in front of us that we cannot recognize ourselves. But He wants to prepare us for them and make sure that we will indeed receive them.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).
The principles in the kingdom of God frequently are the complete opposite of natural principles. In the kingdom of God we lose our lives to gain them. We give to become rich. We humble ourselves to be elevated. We serve to win greatness. The last will be the first and the first will be the last.
We see that we should not be blinded by the natural world. Make the kingdom of God your priority and you will experience love, blessing, and favor in a way you could have never imagined before.
Part of the Body of Christ
Are you part of a larger Body of Christ in your area or are you a part of a church or an ekklesia? The church or the ekklesia is the greatest legal power on the earth, but it appears that she still doesn’t know that about herself. On the other hand, Christians do not believe in being part in it, and this is where being blinded starts.
The church or the ekklesia is the greatest legal power on the earth, but it appears that she still doesn’t know that about herself.
In the Old Testament we see that the anointing of a person can be transferred to another individual. The anointing of priests, kings, prophets, judges, patriarchs, leaders of armies, etc. was transferred from one individual to another. From Elijah to Elisha, from Moses to Joshua, from David to Solomon, etc. But since the time of Jesus the anointing was no longer passed on to individuals only but also to assemblies and groups. We do not have just one prophet; we have many prophets. There is not just one son of God; there are many children of God. We have more than just one person ruling as king; we have all been called to kingship.
God calls us to be part of something collective. It means that we cannot merely be a part of the global Body of Christ. No, we have to actively participate in a local body of believers and live in fellowship with each other. And if we do so, Scripture tells us that we live in the light and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).
We can see from this scripture why it is so important to have vigorous fellowship with the local Body of Christ. Because by doing it we position ourselves in a way that the blood of Jesus can come to the full extent of its power and effect in our lives.
In case you do not belong to an ekklesia or to a church yet, decide to find one. And do not give room to that illusion that you will find a perfect church, because wherever human beings are involved, there will be shortcomings.
There are a few basic elements you should find in a church: Friendly interaction with each other, forgiveness, powerful teaching of the Word of God and biblical principles for daily living, the moving of the Holy Spirit, a striving for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, faith in signs and miracles, holiness, and sanctification, to simply list a few.
Are you a tither? Do you believe that your finances and your welfare are meant for your own provision but also for the provision of the Kingdom of God?
I am deeply convinced about the extraordinary importance of the tithe. We have seen in the courts of heaven that people’s conscious decisions against tithing have become accusations against them numerous times.
Everything we do should be done by faith, not as a method. The same applies to giving the tithe—it has to be given by faith. In my opinion churches should not ask their members to tithe arguing that their expenses need to be covered. We have to understand that the tithe that is given to the church has the purpose to be a blessing for the believer. It is wrong to put people under pressure in regard to tithing or to blame them for a lack of faith if they do not give it. But on the other hand, we should not shrink back from teaching about the overflowing blessing that comes from tithing, only because we are afraid we might offend someone or we do not want anyone to feel pressured. It is our job to strengthen and build up faith so people will start to walk according to those God-given principles. That is how the fruit and blessing will be visible in your personal life. I am convinced that it is impossible to walk in agreement with the principles of God without seeing the fruit thereof in the long run.
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:19).
Where our treasure is that is where our heart is. Our heart testifies about what matters to us. We can recognize what is important to us by watching where our money is spent.
The heart works like a pump in our body and causes constant circulation of blood. Our blood carries stored information going back all the way to Adam, and this information influences our being because life is in the blood. Proverbs 23:7 confirms this: “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”
How do you see your finances? Do you see them as your property and nobody is allowed to intervene, or do you consider them as God’s property and you are simply the steward thereof?
Finances and the prosperity we enjoy have a purpose, if we pursue it. We use finances and treasures in agreement with God’s mandate. Jesus says in Mark 10:29-30 that the things that we have given up for the sake of the Gospel will be returned to us a hundredfold in this time.
Of course God’s wisdom for finances is greater than ours. If we steward them according to His will, we will not miss out, but we will enjoy them and also pass them on to our children’s children.
Decide anew today to bring your finances in alignment. Ask God to provide the faith you need for it. And always keep in mind that God does not want to take anything away from you. He only desires to adjust our course so we can come into the pleasure of receiving a hundredfold (in this present time and age).
When we align our finances and our treasures according to the kingdom of God, we position ourselves with a good testimony for the cleansing of our bloodline. At the same time we make room to see God step in as a witness in our favor speedily (see Mal. 3:3-5). Is there anyone else you’d rather have as a speedy witness than our gracious God and Judge?
