KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 10:1 KJV “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
LIFE is a contest of power. There are unseen beings who are opposed to the comfort, peace and proper LIFESTYLE of men. One’s life would seriously be messed up by these devils if you are not in a position to rule over them. Most of the experiences of lots of people are as a result of the influence of these evil forces Eph 6:12 KJV “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Despite these evil personalities every Christian has received authority and power to dominate these devils. Please note: the statement of the Lord Jesus: He said he has given us power ‘against’ unclean spirits and to cast them out. The Greek word for power used in this verse is ‘exousia’. It is the Greek word for authority. Note that whenever the Judge of creation talks about giving authority, He gives the required power to enforce that authority.
The power we have to enforce this authority is the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. (Acts 1:8) Secondly, we have the host of heaven, that is the angels to act always for our defense and protection. Heb 1:14 KJV “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Dear child of God you have angels at your disposal to assist you. The way to engage them, is not to instruct them directly, but to ask the father to instruct them for your defense and assistance. Mat 26:53 KJV ” Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?” The authority we have over them makes us superior to them, including Satan. Do not allow your mind to accept their power or authority over you. (Luke 10:19)
Recently a fetish priestess who served the gods of the chief of one of the towns in Ghana visited me, saying, she does not want to be a fetish priest again. This woman became a fetish priest by being possessed with the gods(demons) and so vanished from her home in Accra and appeared in the Eastern region of Ghana. She operated for these demons for fifteen years. During her days as a fetish priest, she could vanish, do all kinds of mysterious things. The gods (demons) could appear to her in the form of snakes and other forms. We cast out the devils from her and that was the end of her experiences with them. They no longer appear to her or manifest in any form to her. The power and authority Jesus give preserves her from any form of attack or physical manipulations. Every fetish shrine with its demons are always subjected to the authority of a day old Christian. It is up to you to know your rights in Christ and exercise it in Jesus’ name.
The Lord has given me authority over all the works of the enemy. I cast out devils, heal the sick and set the oppressed to go free. Nothing of the enemy touches me in anyway.
Luke 10:19 KJV” Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Mark 16:17 & 18 KJV” And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
