At 4:31 (PST), January 17, 1994, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area. In its wake 57 died, 5000 injured and over $20 Billion in damages. The photo below is what has been etched in my mind from that catastrophe, the image of cars smashed between layers of highway bridges.

1994 Los Angeles Earthquake

Pastors Brenda Steen of Thousand Oaks Christian Fellowship had been teaching about the protection of the Blood of Jesus for week on Sunday nights at their church. Pastor Arland Steen would teach Sunday morning and Pastor Brenda followed the direction God had shown her, to ‘make much of the Blood of Jesus’. Sunday night, January 16, 1994, they shared communion with the head of each house serving communion to their family. A lamb for a household. The next morning at 4:31 the ground shook and the earth trembled under everyone in the Los Angeles area, including Thousand Oaks. As the members woke to the shaking one thing was in common- no fear! After everything settled one thing was in common- no damage! Another thing in common with the testimonies of the members of Thousand Oaks Christian Fellowship was the children had more faith in the blood than their parents.

The incredible protection the entire church experienced is recorded in Dr Billye Brim’s book on “The Blood and the Glory” and also in Kenneth Copeland Ministries’s book “Real People, Real Needs, Real Victories”. Several years later after the earthquake, I sat on an airplane next to one of the members of that church.  She personally agreed with what I had read and also gave me other faith building testimonies.

As everything that can be shaken is being shaken, we need to make much of the precious Blood of Jesus! You may belong to a church that has taken the Blood out of the hymnal, quit singing about the blood, takes communion quietly so no one will be offended, and will not preach a sermon about the Blood. If you go to that kind of Church it is dead, because the life of the flesh is in the Blood according to Leviticus 17:11.

I urge everyone to find inspired Bible teachers that teach on the Blood of Jesus, good books like Billye Brim’s book on The Blood and the Glory (Harrison House), The Power of the Blood of Jesus by Andrew Murray and many others. Go to YouTube and listen to inspired Bible Teachers free.

In the last days ‘we overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony”, Rev 12:11. It is HIGH TIME to plead the Blood!

Rachel Teafatiller was an awesome prayer warrior for God. I copied this from Billye Brim’s blog of July 21, 2012.

Aurora is only a few miles from Columbine. When Rachel Teafatiller prayed about that tragedy, “Lord, couldn’t you have stopped that?” “No. They have put me out of the schools,” she heard. But then she was impressed how people could stop such tragedies in
their realms of authority by applying the blood.  For instance, if they circled their schools in the mornings, drawing a blood line, nothing could happen there.”

The greatest example of stopping tragedy from coming to your family is found in the Book of Exodus, the first Passover. Each house that had the blood of the lamb applied to their doorposts did not suffer any death of their first born.

The same is true today, the Blood of Jesus has never lost its power. When you go past a school, go around the block and draw a blood line of protection around the school.

Psalm 91:1 (HNV) “He who dwells in the secret place of Ha`Elyon will rest in the shadow of Shaddai. (2) I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust.”

This may sound like a strange scripture for Tabernacles, but this is where we need to live (rest, abide) live right now!!

The custom of the Jewish people is to build a small tabernacle (succot, booths) outside their house and spend time in that temporary building. As they rest in the tabernacle, they would recall how the Hebrew children were taken care of for 40 years in the Wilderness journey. But today I don’t want to look back, but to be totally aware of our protection for today.

To understand where I am teaching today you will need a little understanding of the Law of First Mention. The “law of first-mention” is the principle in the interpretation of Scripture which states that the first mention or occurrence of a subject in Scripture establishes an unchangeable pattern, with that subject remaining unchanged in the mind of God throughout Scripture.

The first time we find the word shadow is in the story of Lot in the city of Sodom in Genesis 19. The angels of the LORD (who looked like men) had come into the city to bear witness to the wickedness. Before God can pass judgment there has to be 2 or 3 witnesses. Lot urged them to come and stay with him and his family for their safety. While they were in Lot’s house, they broke unleavened bread with Lot (the first mention of unleavened bread in the Bible).

When the men of Sodom came to demand to have sex with the angels, Lot’s reply was “See now, I have two virgin daughters. Please let me bring them out to you, and do you to them as is good in your eyes. Only don’t do anything to these men, because they have come under the shadow of my roof.”

First of all, I know what you are thinking.  Why did Lot say they could have his daughters? Lot knew they were not interested in women, but they were only interested in sodomizing men, a word that came from the sins of the city of Sodom.

But don’t miss the best point!  The angels came under covenant with Lot when they broke bread, which is a custom still held in the East. When you are in covenant, the other party will protect you no matter what it costs!!  The covenant made with bread and wine is stronger that your natural bloodline family.

This was God’s way, and it is the best way.  When Jesus broke bread with His disciples at what is now referred to as the Last Supper, He took the wine and said, ” and having taken the cup, and having given thanks, he gave to them, saying, `Drink ye of it — all; for this is my blood of the new covenant, that for many is being poured out — to remission of sins.” (YLT)  The Blood Covenant is still in force today, is still able to protect all who come under it and has never lost its power!!!

TODAY, MAKE YOUR ETERNAL SUCCOT UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY.  Allow Him to be your refuge and fortress. That eternal covenant will always be your safest place of safety in the midst of a storm!
