KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 12:26. “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?”
The discourse of our Lord Jesus and the Pharisees teaches us so much about lots of issues including the devil and his kingdom. The devil has a well-structured kingdom. In Ephesians 1:21 the scriptures reveal the chain of authority of the kingdom of the devil. They are established in this order,
1. Principality, that is the chief or the first in rank
2. Powers. These are those titled as authorities
3. Might. These are those with power to perform certain deeds(dunamis)
4. Dominion. These are classified as Lord’s.
The Bible reveals this chain of authority in Eph 6:12 as follows,
- Rulers of darkness of this world.
- Spiritual wickedness in high places. This is the same as that in Eph 1:21
Dear child of God, please accept that you are seated or placed in rank far above all the authority of Satan and his demons(devils). Just compare Ephesians 1:21 and 2:6. In Eph 1:21, The Lord is seated far above all these chains of devils including Satan. In Eph 2:6, we are seated together with our Lord Jesus in the heavenly places which is far above the devil.
Please accept that in the name of the Lord Jesus you can cast out devils. Mark 1:17 “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Please know also that, all devils including Satan can possess the bodies of men if allowed. Joh 13:27 KJV “And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.” At this instant Satan entered into Judas and led him to betray the Lord of glory. Never be afraid of any devil or demon. Remain in the truth and never allow your flesh or natural reason to control you. That is the power of the devil.
When a man contacts them for help, the demon or devil in charge of the person’s predicament is contacted by the devil of the mallam, or fetish priest and they negotiate. It may stop its activity for a time but give another condition in place of the first. Note also that the main commodity these devils want to buy is your soul. Anybody who contacts them, (devils) gives his soul to the devil before they give the one what he is requesting for. .(Matt 16:26) Remember that their means of activity or weapon to function is Lies or deception That is the grand scheme of the devils. (John 8:44, Rev 12:9)
SATAN has a very organized hierarchy of devils set in order to deceive control and manipulate men’s life. I am not ignorant of his devices. I do not yield to any of his lies and I’m never afraid of him and his devils.
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.”
Col 1:16 KJV” For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”
