SPIRITS ARE SUBJECT UNTO YOU!
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. Not withstanding
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

You can be sick spiritually just like you can be sick physically. Sometimes, the symptoms of spiritual sickness are obvious.
Galatians 5:19-21 (AKJV)
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God
Colossians 3:5-9 (AKJV)
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 for which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7 in the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds
Romans 1:18-32 (AKJV)
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Ephesians 5:3-7 (AKJV)
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
These Scriptures provide us with the seed and the root causes of spiritual sickness.
If any of these things are apprearing in your life along with things like pride, fear, and anxiety then you are suffering from spiritual sickness. Their are signs of physical sickness and how we know when we are getting the flu. It is pretty obvious and we generally get motivated to do something about it because it causes us discomfort, reduces our quality of life, and keeps us from fulfilling our desires. If we are reasonably well adjusted, we don't desire to be sick or reorient our life as though sickness is normal. We don't see people building lifestyles around having the flu or choosing to have cancer.
Of course, it does seem as though some enjoy being sick, but the rest of society considers them to be abnormal.
But, when it comes to spiritual sickness, we have come to accept that as normal. We build lifestyles and practices around our spiritual maladies. We even claim that there is no such thing as spiritual sickness - just choice. But, just like there is a norm for physical well-being that we should desire, there is also a norm for spiritual health and well-being.
This norm is found in God, our Creator, and He reveals it to us through His Scriptures, the Bible.
It was illustrated and lived out for us in Jesus Christ, and now, through faith, we can partake of His life and righteousness.
God gave "His" people commandments, statues and judgments to learn and then live by in order that "His" people would be Blessed and Victorious forever. Two of these can be found in Deuteronomy 6:1-6. Now these are the commandments, the statues, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you that ye might do them in the land wither ye go to possess it... I command thee, thou and thy Son and thy son's, son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days, may be prolonged. Verse 3) Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, And that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. "And thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy Soul and with all thy might." And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: God has given these commandments to his people for all of eternity. The whole Bible is about these two commandments. Satan's plan has always been to steal the Love of God from within the Souls of God's people. And one of his big plans in accomplishing this goal has been and is through Spiritual bondage afflicted upon God's people through the use of Demons and Evil Spirits. He has accomplished this plan for a long time by strategically hindering God's people from a realization of the fullness of God's promises to them. Satan, demons and evil spirits wage continual invisible spiritual conflict around and within us incessantly and unremittingly. Where God works, Satan's forces hinder; Where God's Angels carry out God's directives, Evil Angels, demons and evil spirits rage. A lot of this warfare is carried out within the Spirits, Souls and the Bodies of mankind. Satan is the adversary of the Church and all believers, he is using people's ignorance of the spiritual realm and the operation of 'his spirits' to achieve his spiritual objectives. Human souls and bodies are his target. There are millions of people out there who are silently going through torturous times, because they are dealing with Spirit-Spiritual attacks, constant negative thought intrusions, not to mention worsening health. The people who are most at risk to demons and spirit attack are spirit-filled people. It gets worse, the ones most at risk are those born into this world with a calling of God upon their lives. Pastors, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Teachers, Preachers, Healers, Intercessors, Ministers and Counselors. Today a lot of Preachers are preaching a deliverance message and then leaving the people to work it out for themselves after they have actually stirred up the spirits against the hearers,. Those Spirits now need to be dealt with, they need to be Cast Out in The Name of Jesus.

In the Bible, people misinterpreted the teachings of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because they understood the physical and natural things more than the Spiritual things of God. The same thing is true today!
The Bible says;
1. The Spiritual Importance of Jesus' call to ministry.
2. The Bible a Spiritual Book written in a Spiritual Language to a Spiritual people.
3. You are a Spirit, Soul, sent from God to affect this earth, before your Spirit returns to God, a Spirit who sent it.
4. Because you are a Spirit, Soul, Body. Spirits can fight you.
5. Because you are a Spirit, Soul, Body. Spirits can oppose, block and obstruct you.
6. Because you are a Spirit, Soul, Body. There can be a transference of Spirits.
7. The basis of Spiritual problems.

Jesus was equipped for His earthly ministry, according to the Word of God...being baptized in the Jordan River by, John the Baptist. Matthew 3:16 "And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw The Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon Him. Chapter 4 verse 1 says, "Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit, (The Holy Spirit led Jesus) into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Being full of the Holy Spirit, Jesus was able to face Satan and to resist his temptation. Jesus began His earthly ministry by preaching to the people "Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand". Jesus began His ministry in the Synagogue or the Church by Ministering (reading) Out of the Word of God. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord". Luke 4:18. Then Jesus began to operate in His Ministry, Spiritually, having been endued with power from on high, from His Father God and Our Father. Power (supernaturally) from the Holy Spirit, Jesus, turned water into wine. Healed an official's son at Capernaum. Cast out a demon in Capernaum. Jesus healed Peter's Mother-in-law. Jesus healed a leper. Jesus caused some frustrated fishermen to catch a haul of fish. Jesus healed a paralytic. Jesus healed a crippled man. Jesus healed a hand that had shriveled up. Jesus healed a Centurion's servant. Jesus raised a widow's son from the dead. Jesus, cast out a demon. Jesus stilled a storm. Jesus cast out demons in Gadara, Jesus healed a woman's bleeding and raised Jairus' daughter from the dead. Jesus healed two blind-men. Jesus healed a mute man. Jesus fed five-thousand people. Jesus walked on water. Jesus healed a Canaanite woman's daughter. Jesus fed another four thousand people. Jesus healed a deaf man. Jesus healed a blind man at Bethsaida. Jesus cast demons out of a boy. Jesus provided the temple tax for Peter and Himself from a fish's mouth. Jesus healed ten lepers. Jesus healed a man born blind. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. Jesus healed a crippled woman. Jesus healed a man with dropsy. Jesus healed two blind men. Jesus spoke a word and a fig tree died. Then Jesus died and was resurrected, through the power of the Holy Spirit. After Jesus' resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of His Father as co-ruler of God's Kingdom. In this exalted position Jesus received the Holy Spirit from His Father and sent Him forth upon His people at Pentecost. This out pouring testifies to the continual presence and the authority of Jesus this day. The Holy Spirit came to this earth to dwell within Believers on the day of Pentecost filling them with His Spirit. "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost (A Spiritual Experience) and began to speak with other tongues, as The Spirit gave them utterance. The Holy Spirit is now present in everyone who has asked Him to come and dwell within them, trusting Jesus as Savior and Lord. Because The Holy Spirit is indwelling within us, we have immediately become a Spirit human being having been born-again. Baptized into the Spirit Kingdom of God. A Spirit-filled person by the faith of God. Thus having become a child of God. Entitled to have and maintain an intimate loving relationship with God, Our Father, Jesus the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Due to our Spiritual relationship with God, we are called to surrender ourselves to the Holy Spirit and as we make this surrender. The power of The Holy Spirit is released within us. Spiritually Transforming us from within. A Transformation that empowers us from within. God Almighty empowers us with the same power that He empowered our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Transformation is an inner transformation. A Transformation of our natural heart into a Spirit heart, a heart in union and in communion with God. A Spirit heart that begins to grow within the grace of God. A Spirit Transformation taking place within our understanding as God wants us to understand. A Spirit Transformation that begins to teach us to rely on God Our Father. A Spirit Transformation that teaches us to trust and have faith in God. A Spirit Transformation that restores us to a place with God. A Spirit Transformation takes place within The Kingdom of God that we human spirits have never known before and could not ever have known within this natural, physical or material world. (Because this place was lost by Eve and Adam during the fall) A place that our Spirits had with God in heaven before the foundations of the earth. A Spirit Transformation takes place that is based upon Spirit Intimacy (A love relationship with God) that was lost and now found and has its residency within the heart of each Spirit-filled person. A Spirit Transformation bringing about a knowing within the Spirit heart of the Spirit-Filled-person that He or She is safe within God's Love. Because The Spirit-Filled-person that dwells in God's love has the assurance of the reality of God. Jesus says, I will manifest myself to him the Spirit-Filled person. "Manifest means to make plain so Jesus says to the Spirit-Filled person "I will make myself real to you". Jesus promises to reveal himself to make "Himself" real to any Believer who will keep his commandments and Matthew 22:37-38 says, "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself". Spirit-Filled Persons are called to know the real presence and reality of God. Which is the Love of God (Because God is Love). And knowing this Spirit Love of God. We become spirit motivated by this love of God to do those spirit things that are fruitful to God and bring Him glory. This Spirit Transformation takes place within our hearts. Begins to cause us to love the things that God loves and to hate the things that God hates. This spirit transformation that takes place within us begins to cause us to take on the mind of Jesus Christ. This spirit transformation that is taking place within us causes us to want to be led by the resident Spirit of God that is within us, The Holy Spirit. We begin to want to know more about God and the more we hunger and thirst for God. The more we then begin to be transformed within our Souls and Bodies into the image and likeness of God spiritually. Now we have begun to become a threat to the Kingdom of Satan. And if you the Spirit-Filled Person has not yet been taught about the spirit battle which is taking place within you, then you my friend are functioning through a spiritual disadvantage. Because the warfare is a spirit battle, that will have natural and material manifestations. This spirit battle will be fought using your own personal spirit problems that came (or that are being exposed) to you as you, the Spirit-filled person becomes closer to God. And the battle will begin to escalate as you the Spirit-filled believer becomes closer to God. And the battle will begin to escalate as you the Spirit-filled person during this transformation process begins to be renewed in the renewing of your own mind taking on the mind of Christ Jesus. As you the Spirit-filled person begins to crucify your own flesh becoming dead to sin. And as you the Spirit-Filled Person begins to understand and accept your authority and power that is resident within you, (Spirit) through the fruits and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Satan, will then begin to target you specifically just like he did Jesus in the wilderness, because he understands that God's final victory has already been won. Satan understands that he has been judged and sentenced and that very soon that sentence will be carried out. That Jesus' promise of total transformation will be fully realized. Satan understands better than you do that as a Spirit-filled person, filled with the Spirit of God, that you have been called to help Usher in God's Kingdom here on earth. That you have been raised up within the Spirit realm and will be instrumental in dislodging all of his Spirit powers and forces of hell. You see Satan understands that Spiritually, you are the Stronger Spirit; you have The Spirit of God residing within you.

SPIRITS ARE SUBJECT UNTO YOU
“Spirit-filled people rise up and get rid of everything that is robbing you from within your Spirit, Soul and Body” And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly Romans 16:20 Spirit-filled people Rise up and begin to act like the victor that Jesus has enabled us to be. The Spirits are subject unto you. There is through faith, a heavenly or spiritual realm that enables us to become more spirit alive than we could ever be on our own. Spirit-filled people begin taking on an attitude with your spirit of a spiritual conqueror. “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus Our Lord and Savior. The Spirits are subject unto you Romans 8:38, 39 Spirit-filled people arise. Show Satan the resident wisdom, power and the strength of God that is within you. The power of the Holy Spirit that came through Jesus. Our Lord and Savior Jesus, who came to this earth in demonstration of the defeat of Satan. Jesus the omnipotent Son of the living God fully God and fully man empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus has dominion over all principalities, thrones, dominions and powers, on earth, under the earth and in heaven. Jesus who created principalities, thrones, dominions and Satan.” For by him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him and he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” Colossians 1:16-17 Jesus, the Logos, Word of God, who was Satan’s master when he came to this earth, who came so that you and I, as Spirit-filled people would have an example through the written Word of God. And a demonstration of God’s Spiritual design for our lives as they relate to Satan. By Spiritual force, which was Jesus’ complete power spiritually and naturally over Satan. And by design in the divine plan of God: providing for us, every Spirit-filled person a picture an illustration, of the resident spiritual abilities within us as the righteousness of God. To have power over all the power of the enemy and that nothing shall by any means harm us. The Spirits are subject unto you. It says in 2 Cor. 2:11 “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices.” Begin to command Satan and his hosts out of any areas of your life. Ask, Jesus to show you if what is written in this books is the truth or not? If God tells you that it is the truth then you should ask God, to deliver you from any and all areas within the spirit realm that Satan may have hidden or deceptive strongholds in place within your Soul or body. Ask God to open your spiritual eyes and ears, so that you can see and hear spiritually from him as he reveals things to you from within “His heavenly realm” and then you take spiritual responsibility for your part of the prophetic vision (which is a spiritual vision) of God and do what ever the Lord Jesus instructs you to do in helping usher in “His” Kingdom here on earth. Cleanse your spiritual temple, which is the home of the indwelling Spirit of God. Remember that you have been chosen and appointed to bear fruit for God. Remember that you are God’s workmanship and that you can approach God with confidence. Knowing that you can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens you both Spirit and Naturally. The Spirits are subject unto you. Always keep in mind that you are united with God, and that you are one with “Him in Spirit.” You have been established, Anointed and sealed by God, Spirit-filled people. Jesus said in Matt. 12:28-29 “But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God is come unto you. Or else, how can one enter into a strong man’s house and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? And then he will spoil his house. Jesus said in Matt. 12:43-45 “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so The Spirits are subject unto you. shall it be also unto this wicked generation.” Jesus said, in Matt. 15:18 “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come froth from the heart; and they defile the man.” In Matt. 10: it says” And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power, against unclean spirits, to cast them out and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease…Jesus said, And as ye go, preach, saying the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils; freely ye have received, freely give…For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.” Jesus said in Luke 9:25 “For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away.” In Luke 10:1 it says, “After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.” And the seventy returned again with joy, saying Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven, Behold, I give unto you power (Spiritual power) to tread on serpents (Spirits) and scorpions (Spirits) and over all the power of the enemy: and 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. The Spirits are subject unto you. We can prove it!
The way to find spiritual health is through a relationship with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by faith. We need His righteousness.
We cannot develop our own righteousness to fix our problem because WE are the problem. We carry spiritual sickness around in us and it taints all that we do. We need healing from the outside. We need a full dose of the person and work of Christ to eradicate sin that results in spiritual sickness and brokenness. Another kind of spiritual sickness that often goes unnoticed is something called "Spiritual Lukewarmness." Jesus accused the church at Laodecia of this in Revelation 3:14-21. He said that they were neither cold nor hot. They thought that they were rich and in need of nothing. They thought that they were fine.
Jesus denounced all of this and said that they were actually very needy. They just didn't realize it.
Jesus said that he would rather they be hot or cold, not lukewarm. If they were hot, that would be better, obviously. If they were cold toward God, even that is better than being lukewarm because you know that you are separated from God. You are not living under the illusion of being close to God when you really aren't. Luke 14:34-35, which says, "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile. It is thrown out."
"Jesus isn't just making a cute little analogy here. He is addressing those who aren't willing to give everything, who won't follow Him all the way. Jesus is saying that lukewarm, halfhearted following is useless, that it sickens our souls.
Jesus is saying this kind of salt is not even 'fit for the manure pile.' Wow.
How would you like to hear the Son of God say, 'You would ruin manure'? When salt is salty, it helps manure become good fertilizer ... but lukewarm and uncommitted faith is completely useless.
It can't even benefit manure."
Would my "faith" ruin manure?
Is it completely worthless?
Or does my faith become a conduit for God to work in and through my life in a way that He is glorified and the world is changed?
Do I live for myself and ask God to bless my endeavors, or do I live for God and ask Him to use me as He sees fit?
I examine your own heart this morning and ask God to reveal your lukewarmness and spiritual sickness to you. Do you live for myself and do what is comfortable for you?
Is spiritual lukewarmness affecting your own life?
Spiritual Sickness gives a place to the devil and Lukewarmness will provide a crack in the door just big enough for the devil to slide in. Mental Assent will give the devil approval to stay in once he pushes his way in.
The apostle Paul admonishes Christians in
not to give place to the devil.
“Place” means a location, home, opportunity.
If it was not possible for the devil to gain strongholds in the lives of Christians, would warnings like this be necessary?
Most of us understand that we can bring demonic oppression into our lives by participating in sinful activities, hence the need to avoid certain things, but many are not aware that the enemy also successfully gains Strongholds in our lives by the sins of others against Us. A good example would be the person who has suffered abuse at the hands of a parent, guardian or spouse, or someone who has lived in the chaotic environment caused by the addictive strongholds of a loved one (parent or spouse).
A person who has lived under the heavy hand of abusive control, or in any “out of control” environment, usually needs freedom themselves from a rebellious, controlling spirit of witchcraft (the scriptures equate rebellion with witchcraft) –
1 Samuel 15:23 (KJV)
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (Where there is the one, the other is always present).
Don’t be shocked at this. It is only natural to rebel against oppression or chaos.
The problem is that Satan capitalizes on our helplessness and desperate need for freedom from these things in our lives and then he strategically orchestrates and brings in a matrix of predator demons and evil spirits to supposedly help us deal with our difficult situations.
I have spoken with numerous individuals over the years who had lived for many years under someone else’s controlling thumb, or some other type of “out of control” situation.
These individuals may or may not be gentle people who would never knowingly harm anyone, but upon escaping from their oppressive/out of control circumstances determined (either consciously or unconsciously) that no one was ever going to Control their lives again or that they were going to be in complete control of at least one area of their “out of control” lives.
Without realizing it they gave place to a spirit of rebellion (a very real, non-benevolent being). A Demonic Spirit.
The effect of this oppression usually results in a person who feels oppressed by making commitments, and when commitments are made, they are not often kept. People frequently find this type of individual undependable. Instead of rebelling only against the oppression of the enemy, these people rebel against legitimate authority including the commitment and accountability we, as Christians, are all called to give to one another. This in turn leads to loyalty Issues. If we cannot be committed, accountable and loyal to each other as brothers and sisters in Christ—do not think we can be committed, loyal and accountable to Jesus! Do not be deceived in this. Our walk with Jesus is visibly demonstrated in our walk with each other.
Another spirit that is frequently a part of this matrix of rebellion and control is a lying Spirit (also a non-benevolent being).
Where there is no loyalty or sense of commitment, there are often lies. Not necessarily whoppers, just little white lies to keep from hurting someone’s feelings or from having to confront unpleasant situations. This brings us to another predator that hangs out with the Self-Deprecating Spirits and that is the Spirit of Fear. However fear is not the stronghold spirit.
Another manifestation of the self-deprecating Spirits is some type of Compulsive Behavior Motivated by the need to have some sort of handle of control in an otherwise uncontrollable life or environment.
I am providing you with another glimpse of how these hateful Self Deprecating Spirits Operate through Hidden Works of Darkness, Hidden Oppression and Hidden Word based programming REVEALING TO YOU HOW THEY are working against us, or up on us without our revealed knowledge? There is absolutely no shame in admitting that the enemy has dug in and fortified his strongholds within our Souls over the years. But shame on us if we allow those Evil Spirits to stay once it is brought to our attention. ONE that they are there and TWO how they are working!
Every adverse situation in our lives has its environment of spirits working diligently to both Oppress us and OPPRESS others through us. We cannot allow the enemy to use us any longer; we can no longer allow demons to have a home or opportunity within our Souls and Bodies any longer. If the Enemy does, it is no one’s fault but our own.
Do you have a fear of being taken advantage of and oppressed if you allow yourself to become committed and accountable to others? Because of this, do you have a problem with demonstrating loyalty to others?
Do you find yourself telling lies in order to avoid commitment or conflict (you’d rather keep the peace)?
Are you bound by compulsive behavior that gives you a false sense of control? Even the newest Christian has all authority over the powers of darkness.
This is a vertical authority (as in rank) – not a horizontal tug of war.
Ask the Spirit of the Lord to reveal if Self Deprecating Spirits through Hidden Works of darkness, Hidden Oppression and Hidden Word based programming are operating in your life.
If so, You Must Repent Today from any sinful behavior known or unknown that has helped to strengthen these spirits.
Such as THE SIN OF Lack of Faith;
Romans 14:23 (KJV) and he that doubteth is damned… for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
