CAST OUT DEVILS ;
(You’ve Got Authority Over All Demons Of Darkness!)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
TO THE BIBLE
Mark 1:25-26 GNB “Jesus ordered the spirit, “Be quiet, and come out of the man!” The evil spirit shook the man hard, gave a loud scream, and came out of him.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
Every Christian has the ability to cast out devils! It’s not a question of how “strong” or “spiritual” you are; what’s important is that Jesus has given you His authority; you walk in His Name. Mark 16:17 (GNB) says, “Believers will be given the power to perform miracles: they will drive out demons in my name….” So, satan has no right to run things in your life, or in your home or in the lives of your loved ones. Exercise your authority in Christ against him. You can cast out devils any day, anytime and anywhere, simply by using the Name of Jesus. Don’t negotiate with him; cast him out!
You might want to ask, “How do I know the devil is out when I cast him out?” That’s simple. Jesus said when you ask the devils to go, they’d go. His Word settles it. Your role is to cast the devil out, and the devil’s responsibility is to oblige. However, there’re occasions when the devils literally manifest and cry out loud as they leave the one from whom they’re being cast out. An example is what we read in our opening verse. We also see an instance of this in Acts 8:6-7 as Philip preached Christ to the people: “…unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.”
Thus, in casting out devils, the evil spirits could shriek and shout in torment as they go; and then the literal change in the expressions of those from whom the spirits came out would immediately reveal that there’s been a difference. Besides, it makes no difference whether the devils shriek or shout when you cast them out; what’s important is what Jesus said, “…In My name they will cast out demons…” (Mark 16:17). That’s absolute reality, and it should form the basis for your faith. Therefore, when you cast out demons, they have only one option—to flee.
Luke 10:18-19; Acts 16:16-18
Dear Father, I thank you for the authority you’ve vested in me to cast out devils in the Name of Jesus. The devil and his cohorts have no place in my home, body, job and finances. I exercise my authority in Christ to keep them where they belong—under my feet—in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
