We are in a spiritual warfare... so I want you to know how you can exercise spiritual authority over the enemy for the journey ahead. I want to share some information that comes directly from the Bible, which instructs us as to how to protect ourselves from evil. I use the tools written in God's word to protect myself when I feel that I am under a spiritual attack. Your attack may be from an associate, an ex, or even a family member. Evil comes in many forms, and while sometimes we can see it coming, most often we cannot, and here is why...
"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." (Ephesians 6:12)
This point is key in understanding who you are battling. Evil is not your ex, an attorney, or an unethical police officer. Their evil actions come from a demonic spirit within them.
"The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy." (John 10:10)
The thief is the Prince of Darkness, who is Satan. He is our enemy and He is whom God's children are battling.
"In My Name you (the believer) will cast out evil spirits… " (Mark 16:17)
"Resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)
Both phrases: "cast out" and "resist" are fighting words. Both embody the full authority of Jesus Christ. Neither should be exercised apart from His authority, and neither should be engaged in without full battle preparation. It is important that we depend on Scripture and upon the Spirit of God (Who will lead us into all Truth), as we consider our authority over the enemy... evil. You must "Put on the Full Armor of God" for the battle. For in Ephesians 6:10-11, the Bible says:
"... be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes."
So, very simply, all you have to do to protect yourself from evil is to rebuke Satan in the Name of the Lord, as the archangel, Michael, did in Jude 1:9. Simply say the words, "I bind you and rebuke you (Satan) in the name of Jesus." You may also state the thing that you want protected. For example: "In the name of Jesus, I bind you and I rebuke you from harming me and my child." Then say," In the name of Jesus, I cast you into the Lake of Fire for eternity, never to return."
By saying these words, evil must and will flee from you. Remember, God is more powerful than Satan. We are the children of the most high God and were given (by God) authority and dominion over evil. Satan and his demons are very afraid of God, and as a child of God, you have the power to bind and cast demons out and away from you at all times.
Put on the armor of God!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armory of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. (Eph 6:10-13)
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view be on alert with all perseverance and petition (Eph 6:18-19)
If you have not received Christ into your life and you do not know how to do it, it is very simple. All you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your life. Accept Him as your Lord and Savior; and lastly, ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins, and He will wash away all of your sins. I promise, if you do this, you will be saved and I know that you will be filled with love, peace and an inner knowing of The Truth. Please do this, also, with your children, if you have children. I hope that you will make this decision today. If you would like to receive Christ into your life with my help, feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will schedule a call with you.
Remember, God has placed His power within you to banish evil, so I hope that you will use it. It will make your journey a lot more bearable, so Put on the Whole Armor of God every single day!
Please know that you are not alone. God and I are here for you!
I am leaving you some more scripture below to show you the power that God has given every believer.
Scripture Giving You the Authority Over Satan
If the devil tells you that you are filth, you say, "IT IS WRITTEN... that I am the righteousness of God."
If the devil says God has left you, you say, "IT IS WRITTEN... He will never leave me nor forsake me."
If the devil tells you that you aren't strong enough, you say, "IT IS WRITTEN... I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me."
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? (Rom 8:31)
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)
For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light
Submit to God and His Word, and He will be faithful.
