How can Christians overcome the enemy in their lives? As children of God we have inherited special privileges from God to help us overcome the works of the enemy. Firstly, in God’s eyes, we are royalty and priests as well:
1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
God sees us as royalty because we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ, as in we are brother and sisters to Jesus Christ himself.
Matthew 12:50 King James Version (KJV)
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
Did you know Jesus Christ has been given every power in the universe?
Matthew 28:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
And that Jesus gave us authority over ALL the power of the enemy?
Luke 10:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 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.
Therefore, we must go forth and exercise our authority over satan and his minions.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 King James Version (KJV)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; )
Paul provides a good example:
Acts 16:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
We exercise our authority by issuing commands and God immediately sends angels and infinite spiritual power to defeat the enemy.
Deuteronomy 20:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
Confess your sins
Confess all your sins to God the father in Jesus’ name. It has to be genuine repentance, without a hint of pride. Say you’re sorry for all the things you’ve done to God (not to men).
Then forgive everyone that has sinned against you, so that God can forgive you. Then ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. You’re doing this:
1 John 1:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Now that you’ve genuinely repented, get rid of worldly and occult items that you may have in the house. These things may have curses on them. Avoid mainstream TV and worldly music. These things are unfruitful.
How to effectively exercise our authority
It is recommended to bind the strong demons, in accordance with this verse:
Mark 3:27 King James Version (KJV)
27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
Issue the following commands to bind the strong demons:
“Father in heaven, in the name of Jesus Christ I bind the principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places and all the strong demons. Whatever is bound on earth is bound in heaven.”
Then attack every evil spirit:
“In the name of Jesus Christ I rebuke every familiar spirit, every contrary spirit, every spirit of <insert here whatever you are attacking: anger, lust, pride, depression, anxiety, sleep paralysis, greed, etc..>.
In the name of Jesus and by the blood of the lamb, I remove all things that give you power. In the name of Jesus I break all the curses that are in my life. In the name of Jesus I break all the intergenerational curses on both sides of my parents going back 50 generations. Every single soul tie in my life, I break them now in the name of Jesus.
I step on you wicked spirits to bruise your head and shatter your being. In the name of Jesus I command legions of angels to hook into all you wicked spirits, to rip you apart and send you all to the pit.
I command fire from heaven to consume you evil spirits and I come against you by the authority given to me by Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus I dismember your left hand and left leg.
Father in heaven, I give thanks to you for your mighty deeds and your spiritual power which rescue me. Thank-you Jesus for giving me the authority over the forces of darkness. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen”
Be spiritually strong and give no mercy to these demons for they have no mercy for you. Their intent is to steal, kill and destroy you and your loved ones. The above prayer works due to this universal law:
Philippians 2:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
How to stay demon free
You must read the bible and do the word of God properly. Start from Matthew and read to Revelation first. Then do the old testament. Why? Because we are commanded to:
Matthew 4:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
You need to know every word and obey it properly. If you need help with scripture, email me at [email protected]
