KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 12:28 KJV” But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.”
The presence of the kingdom of Satan in any life, means sorrow, sicknesses, setbacks, divisions in homes, and every kind of evil that one can imagine. The Lord said when he cast out a devil or devils then the kingdom of God has come. It means it takes the kingdom of God to overthrow the kingdom of Satan. The Lord made a follow up statement to the first by saying “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first binds the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. The Lord shows us again how to be free of the menace of Satan. He describes his reign, as a strong man that, takes charge of a person’s life. He takes possession of the individuals liberties. These liberties or objects of comfort of that individual becomes the goods of the devil. They can include the peace of the person, his health, and many more. To some people their real bondage is a lie that the strongman has succeeded in settling in their hearts. Some believe that, there is no devil, and that everything that happens to them is either by chance or their own making. Satan thrives in an individual’s life when the one refuses to accept what God says through the word, but chooses to believe that which opposes the word of God.
The Lord established in his teaching that one must bind that strong man that has taken over, that which belongs to him. The Lord Jesus also clarifies that, you must engage the enemy in a contest to possess your possession. The means to do this is by your mouth, with faith in your heart. Psalm 8:2 KJV” Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.” Babies and suckling in this scripture refer to men and women with a childlike faith. The Lord says He has ordained strength in your mouth. Use your mouth in prayer against the devil. Bind him by faith and cast him out of your life.
A lady was brought to me who laid motionless as if dead. I started praying for her as I rebuked the demon spirit to come out. Within an instant, this lady who laid on the floor as if dead, got up in a very aggressive way, to attack me. I rebuked that devil and in a moment she was free. She walked back home as a strong healthy person. What was happening here? A demon spirit had taken possession of her body. When that spirit was challenged, it begun to manifest. Dear child of God, you have authority in your mouth. Speak against that bad condition. Address that personality in Jesus’ name. It will submit to that authority and leave your life. Remember during the days of Jesus on the earth, he addressed devils to leave men’s life and they did
I have authority in Jesus’ name to cast out devils. I do not give any fear or acknowledgement to the enemy. I resist him in faith, and indeed they obey me.
1 Peter 5:8 & 9 KJV” Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
James 4:7 KJV “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
