“…straightway on the
Sabbath day He entered into the synagogue, and …taught them as one that had
authority, …And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit;
and he cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou
Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I
know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. Jesus rebuked him,
saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. When the unclean spirit
had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, HE CAME OUT OF HIM.” (Mark
What I am about to share
with you makes some people angry, very angry. It made people angry in
Jesus’ day, too. However, truth is truth
and it does not come in varying shades of gray. Truth only comes in
black and white. So, here is the black and white of it.
millions of people worldwide attending Church on a regular basis who are
under the control of demon spirits. Whenever someone
with God’s power on their life comes around
speaking Truth from God’s Word, they squirm, becoming very agitated and
This is what happened when Jesus showed up in the
Synagogue. The demons in that man recognized the power of God on His
life and were immediately agitated. They began to cry out and to
complain about Him.
People still do this today. They
don’t want to be disturbed by God’s power in their sedate little
congregations. They don't want to be disturbed by God's Word in
their sedate little lifestyles. They don’t want to hear Truth
because they don’t want to change.
If the Pastor dared to preach or teach the
whole counsel of God, including repentance for alcohol and
prescription drug abuse, R-rated movies, rag mags,
gossiping, lying, immorality, stinginess, not paying tithes
and offerings, selfishness, divorce and pride, he would be “cast
out,” not the devil!
However, this does not
change the fact that all who want to be free from demonic control can be
free. Demons still tremble whenever someone takes hold of God’s Word
and makes the decision to be free of them, once and for all! Demons are, after all, defeated foes and it is quite easy to be rid
“And having spoiled
[demonic] principalities and powers, he [Jesus] made a shew
of them openly, triumphing over them.”
“Behold, I give unto YOU
power to tread on serpents and scorpions [Satan
and demons], and over all the power of the enemy: nothing shall by any
means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that THE SPIRITS ARE
SUBJECT UNTO YOU; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in
heaven.” (Luke 10:19-20)
These evil spirits are
subject to ALL Believers in Christ, not just Pastors and Evangelists. This means if
you have made Jesus your Lord and Master by simply saying, “Jesus, You’re my choice” that you are now Master of all
demon powers as well. When the Believer who is living right speaks to them, demon spirits have no choice
but to obey. (Mark 16:15-20; James 4:7) They fully realize if
they do not, they will answer directly to Jesus. (Matthew 18:18) They
much rather obey the Believer than to have to deal with Jesus.
If you have
been a religious Christian and a member of a denomination which condones sin
and compromise, you need to be free and you can be free. If you personally have been bound by
sin or are condoning sin and compromise, you can be free. If Satan has been controlling your tongue, your mind, your
emotions or your body, you can be free.
There are only three
powers in the Universe. The good power of God. The evil power
of Satan and the neutral power of Man.
When man is not yielding to God, he is yielding to Satan. Period.
There is no neutral ground.
Jesus revealed this when He said, "If you're not for Me, you're against
who is not with Me [definitely on My side] is against Me, and he who does
not [definitely] gather with Me and for My side scatters." (Matthew
you are not obeying Him in
every realm of your existence, you are obeying Satan and you need to repent
and be set free.
this sound like you or
someone you love? Well, I have Good News! God’s not mad at you or your loved ones.
Anyone can be free of gossip, immorality, lying, greed, cruelty,
selfishness, prejudice, racism, compromise, etc. Even physical sickness and disease must bow its knee
to the Name of Jesus.
If you have not yet asked
Jesus to be your Savior, pray, “Jesus, I choose You as my Master, Savior
and Deliverer. Satan, I renounce every sin and compromise. I
cast you out in Jesus’ Name. As of today I change allegiance from you
to Jesus. I call myself free, in Jesus’ Powerful Name.” (Romans
will be amazed as you now seek the forgiveness of those
you have wronged how things will stop happening TO you and start happening
You may also pray for that
loved one who is oppressed and you will ultimately see them set free supernaturally. Just
address those spirits by saying, "Rulers of the darkness of this
present evil world, demonic principalities and powers, I bind you from
(name)'s life and mind. Loose them in Jesus' Strong Name." (Ephesians
6:12; James 4:7)
to praise God, expecting results and you will be amazed at the turn around as you refuse to let Satan have your
loved ones. Stand your ground. Continue to remind Satan, "I call
(name) free in Jesus' Name. I'll not take NO for an
answer from you."
Once you let Satan know that
you are not
backing off, no matter how long it takes, he will leave to go and find someone less
It is simply unscriptural
and wrong for Christians to believe that only Ministers have authority over
Satan and demon powers. You will not find that in the Bible. If
it is not in the Bible, you should not subscribe to it.
Jesus Christ is Master
over all demon powers. Jesus lives in you. Therefore, you are
master over Satan and demon powers. That is why the Bible says,
"As He is so are we in this world." (1 John 4:17)
Evil spirits might kick
and scream a little when you tell them to go. That is normal.
They are just trying you
on for size, so to speak, hoping you will back down. Continue to
remind them who is
boss. They will leave. Jesus promised they would. He will back you
up from Heaven just like the Law backs up Police
Officers on Earth.
"Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind
[forbid] on earth shall be bound [backed up] in heaven ..." (Matthew
