In a time where anyone mentioning the demonic realm is ridiculed, it is important we know and understand what the BIBLE says.
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
So many things in this world are influenced by the demonic realm, through suggestion, fear, doubt, depression, and even causing a situation to come that leads to a dead end.
Demons, unclean spirits, deceptive spirits, or alien entities. All of these mean the same thing.
In Mark 9, we see a boy that was tormented by evil spirits.
“How long has this been happening?” Jesus asked the boy’s father. He replied, “Since he was a little boy. The spirit often throws him into the fire or into water, trying to kill him. Have mercy on us and help us, if you can.” “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” Mark 9:21-23 NLT
Demonic forces are real, they seek to influence, and if allowed to take control of a person’s life. They come to kill, steal and destroy! (Joh. 10:10)
Thank God for the name of Jesus, through Him we have the victory! He came to give us abundant life!
“[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].” Colossians 2:15 AMPC
In Him we have the victory!
We should not be ignorant of this conflict on the earth!
The difference between flesh and devils:
- Each person has flesh (carnal nature) with an appetite, and it becomes stronger if you feed it.
- Not everything is a devil, our responsibility is to keep our carnal nature under subjection, and walk in love.
- We need to have our spiritual ears open and seeing with our spiritual eyes!
- Stay out of the enemy’s territory, if you choose to live in compromise and sin, you invite the enemy’s deception into your life. Don’t depart from the path, you may not be able to navigate back!
We are spiritual beings!
We are born again by the Spirit of God, we become spiritually alive, living in the Spirit, hearing the Father’s voice, and then we will see!
“If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NLT
By faith in God’s Word, and with the wondrous power of the Holy Spirit we are born again to live life! What an awesome salvation!
To live a clean, and pure life, is having a pure conscience before God!
“Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.” 1 John 3:21 KJV
In order to take authority over demonic forces in Jesus’ name:
- We must be children of God
- We must not have any unconfessed or unforgiven sin in our hearts.
- We must know the power of the name of Jesus and know how to use it.
If you’ve been overtaken, defeated by the enemy in your personal life; take your place in this wonderful name, the name of Jesus. You can’t help anyone unless you are free yourself.
- Start with your own life.
- The fight is not against flesh/blood
- Your family members are not your enemy!
“Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11 NLT
We know that JESUS IS THE VICTOR!
