The following excerpt is taken from Honor the Blood by W.B. Young:

Honor the Blood

The Lord compares the intense battles of the Christian life with floods. “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19). A flood comes in waves—wave after wave. It mercilessly batters whatever is in its way. Sometimes the sinister buildup is evident. At other times it comes unannounced in a tidal wave. It is out to do damage. The frantic efforts of men to stop it are more often feeble than effective.

Blessed Remedy

“The Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” What is that “standard”? It is blessed Calvary. The accomplishment of the shed blood of Christ on the cross can meet any raging “flood” emergency in the spiritual life of the believer at anytime, anywhere and successfully deal with it. It is the effective answer to all of Satan’s onslaughts.

There must be a personal application of the blood of Christ in order to stem the tide of spiritual destruction in the life of the child of God. It was said of Moses that, “Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of [the] blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them” (Hebrews 11:28). It is a personal matter. “The blood shall be to you for a token” (Exodus 12:13). “When I see the blood, I will pass over you” (Exodus 12:13). The blood, applied by sprinkling, was all that was required for peace of mind and rest of heart. It took away all fear of the destroying angel. It was not mere interest in the blood, nor belief in its power, nor appreciation of its worth that availed. It was the applied blood that counted. Truth was translated into action. So it is with the blood of the Lord Jesus. It is effective against satanic floods when applied by faith. A proper application of His blood to a given situation, if the believer is operating from a cleansed position, always brings deliverance. It never fails.

“And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:11). The Holy Spirit, Who is the Infallible Teacher, will make real to each one, His way of working this “mystery” of the wonder-working power of the blood of Christ to meet every thrust of Satan. In this verse He has given three general guide lines. 1. The basis of our power and authority over all the enemy: “the blood of the Lamb.” 2. The word of our testimony. This is the practical application of our belief in “the blood of the Lamb.” When the conflict is close and fierce with the Adversary, our testimony will be directed to him. Jesus practiced this truth. Under the protection of the blood of Christ and with the authority vested by Christ himself, unafraid and unflinchingly notify Satan that he is a defeated foe, that he has no right or power in a given situation because you are moving against him and his activity with the “standard” provided by God, the precious blood of Christ. God promised His people that when He saw the blood He would deliver. God will keep His part of the covenant. Our responsibility is to “sprinkle the blood.” It is God’s part to deliver. 3. All aspects of the self-life must be reckoned “unto death” if Satan is to be defeated. The redeemed saint who is cleansed from sin must become a selfless saint in order to become a victorious warrior. When these three premises are met, then the child of God is able to exercise his heritage of spiritual authority. The unlimited power of the blood of the Lord Jesus will be loosed.

Blessed Availability

The “precious blood” is made available. It is within reach. Hebrews 9:12 points out the heavenly access of Christ’s blood, “… by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” It was through His blood He cleansed the heavenly things and entered the holiest on our behalf, “It was therefore necessary that the pattern of things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us” (Hebrews 9:23-24).

The blood of Jesus is not a dead substance. It did not dry up on the cross of Calvary. It is enlivened, activated, and potent through the Holy Spirit. It was the “Eternal Spirit” (Hebrews 9:14) who enabled Jesus to shed His blood and present it in Heaven. The same “Eternal Spirit” brings the living reality of the blood of Jesus to the saints on earth. “And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one” (1 John 5:8).

Blessed Possibilities

The scope of the “sprinkling of the blood of the Lord Jesus” is very great. It is not limited to people. It can be applied to things. “Moreover he sprinkled (likewise) with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry” (Hebrews 9:21). “For when Moses had spoken every precept…he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water…and sprinkled both the book and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you” (Hebrews 9:19-20). It was applied to the two side posts and the upper door post of the Egyptian houses (Exodus 12:7). “And Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about” (Leviticus 8:24).

God told Moses to apply the blood in the consecration of the priests who were to minister to the people of God. “The ram of consecration…Moses took the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot” (Leviticus 8:22-23). This was also done to Aaron’s sons. The “everlasting covenant” dictates that all of us constantly need this covering. A blood-covered ear is needed to “hear what the Spirit sayeth to the churches.” A blood covered thumb is needed to render service to lost humanity and the Body of Christ. A blood-covered foot is needed to consistently walk in the Spirit.

Do not limit the power of the blood of Christ to what you understand. There is no greater mystery in the Christian life than the worth and power of His blood. Apply it by faith. Be a child of God who practices the “sprinkling of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Sprinkle it anywhere there is evidence of pressure, tension, or any kind of satanic effort to thwart the complete will of God in your life. God wants it for a witness, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things…” (Hebrews 12:24). Praise the Lord the blood speaks!
