KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 11:18 KJV “If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
The Lord’s answer to the Jews in the earlier statements reveals some very important truths about the devil. It reveals Satan has a united kingdom. Satan ‘s organization is well knitted together This teaches that every Christian dealing against the devil must live a holistic life for God. To successfully deal with the devil you must not be accommodating the devil in another aspect of his ways. Do not say you are casting out devils, yet on the flip side you are unforgiving, or allowing the flesh to dictate your actions in another sphere of life. The Lord said Satan’s kingdom is one. This means when a Christian gives any grounds to the enemy, he cannot be victorious in another aspect of dealing with the devil.
Satan power by which his kingdom functions is darkness. This implies any child of God with a heart submitted to the master can always overpower the devil or cast them out of people, things, and places. As the Lord said, the prince of this world comes, but he has nothing in Him (John 14:30). John 8:12 reads “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”.
HOW can one effectively cast out demons? You have to understand the import of Jesus statement in John 8:12. The man who follows the Lord, that is he who walks by the word of God shall not walk in darkness. Secondly you must understand you are fully light, and therefore you have absolute authority and power over the devil and his demons who are darkness. Anytime you have to deal with any demonic condition, like someone oppressed by the devil, a person who is sick or even your very experience, you must know you are far superior to the enemy. Command the devil with that perception of superiority and they would submit.
Heavenly Father thank you for saving my soul. I live by the word of God. The word is light, while Satan and his angels are all darkness. By my light I overpower them.
John 14:30 KJV Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Romans 6:22 KJV. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
