ILLEGAL

August 11, 2016

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:12-13).

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

Though I believe, believers are in continual warfare at some level, I keep forgetting the above two scriptures, so I have come to understand David’s words that are recorded in Psalm 119:71, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.” Eventually, after much testing and failures, I am going to learn to do what will bring me success.

Unlike us, demons assigned to our lives do not become weary in their task. They are trying to steal, kill, and destroy. They are trying to oppress, repress, suppress, and depress us. They do whatever it takes to accomplish their assignment and I am finding out that I must be as vigilant as they are in doing what the scriptures have stated.

In the beginning when God created man in His image and likeness, God told man these words, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1: 28). It was the plan of God that man was to establish the influence of heaven on earth. God gave only man the legal authority to rule the earth. Anything or one that does not possess a body has no legal right of rulership on this earth. As believers we are to exercise our authority and put the devil and his forces out. We are to use the power that God placed in us because He is not going to do the work that He has assigned to our hands. Failure or success depends on our determination.

Ephesians 6:13 tells us, “to stand.” The dictionary gives one of the meanings of the word “stand” as “a defensive effort.” So, believers must guard against and stand firmly in the midst of the enemy’s attack. Don’t cower, be depressed, or be afraid of your enemies.

We have the legal right to cast out all illegals. If you doubt my words remember the words of Jesus in Mark 16:17, “And these signs shall follow then that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils.” You have the power and authority, now do the work.
