Clearly we can see that one of the purposes for which Christ came into this world was to undo the works of the devil. And that must also be his purpose and mine.
Wherever you see the work of the devil: sickness, death, pain, anguish, depression, poverty, misery, addiction, obsession, iniquity, accident, theft, violence, divorce, abandonment, loneliness, etc., destroy it.
You are Heavenly Father's representative, as much as Christ was on earth. Go in God's place, in His name and authority, and cast Satan. God is going to back him up with his power.
For this, you don't have to be a perfect person, you just have to be under submission, take your position as a son or daughter, and believe that God supports you.
On what basis can we do it?:
1. We have a living God.
Because unlike other religions, Christianity is the only one that implies an intimate relationship with a living, holy and supernatural person. A person superior to any other, because he is the Creator of all that is known and beyond.
2. We have the cross of Christ.
No other religion has the cross, for none offered their life instead of humanity. Only Christ there in the wood made full provision of full and eternal life for human beings, both in this world and in eternity.
3. We have the Holy Spirit within us.
The Comforter is the administrator of the finished work on the cross of the ordeal. It is the Holy Ghost who empowers us to demonstrate all that Christ gained there.
He is the one who gives us permission to demonstrate the power of God and exercise the authority of Christ here on earth.
Every time we open our mouths to declare his will, to declare his Word, we are empowered to heal the sick, to give freedom to the captives, in the name of Jesus.
4. God is Supernatural.
Culture, society, man can change and develop all the technology they want, but God does not change and his nature is supernatural above and beyond intellect and human abilities.
If God had changed, the stars would begin to fall and the sun would cease to light up, because everything created by His hand depends on Him.
Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and for ever."
So if Jesus Christ is always the same, He saved yesterday, saves today, and will save tomorrow. He healed, liberated and prospered yesterday, for he also does it today and he will do it tomorrow.
Nothing in the character and nature of God has ever ceased to be. God is supernatural today, as he was yesterday, So his power continues to operate on earth with the same creative skill as when he created the world.
He sustained the people of Israel in the wilderness; saved Daniel from the lion's den, begat Christ in the womb of a virgin; multiplied some loaves and fishes to feed a crowd; He rose dead and above all raised Christ from the dead.
And we come to the Church hoping that Christ will perform a miracle because Christ is alive and his supernatural power is real.
Genesis 1:1-2 " In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
According to this Word, God is the creator, and therefore He is the ultimate authority, supreme and absolute from the beginning. He is the source, the source and generator of all authority.
And being the Creator of this universe and all that there is also makes it the supreme authority of all that is created by law. He is therefore the only one who has the power to establish and delegate authority to heaven and earth.
Genesis 1:2 "And the earth was messy and empty, and the darkness was upon the face of the abyss, and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
Because the earth was disorderly, God delegated his authority to order Adan, but he lost that authority by being disobedient and handing that authority to the devil.
However, Christ had to restore that power and authority. And this happened after He was killed and resurrected by the Holy Spirit. Declaring it before ascending to heaven to be to the right of the Father.
Matthew 28:18 "And Jesus came up to them and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and on earth."
At first Jesus' authority was limited to his obedience, but as he died on the cross and was resurrected, he made that statement and then distributed it to his Church, so that we can exercise it where he has placed us through the Holy Spirit who has given us vested with that power.
What this means, that now Satanas is a subject of the Church, without rights. That is to say that he is subject to our authority, with an obligation to obey us.
The only right he has is the one we give him with our disobedience. The Church has to understand the true state of Satan in order to put it under her feet and exercise authority over him and his works.
Satan's status is: destroyed, defeated, defeated under our feet, and condemned.
5. The power of God resides in His Word.
Hebrew 1:3 "who (Jesus), being the glare of his glory, and the very image of his substance, and who sustains all things with the word of his power."
This Word shows us that Jesus is the one who sustains all things under the power of his Word. That is, the power of God has resided and will always reside in His Word. Remember him, in his Word, in his Word, resides the power of God.
Isaias 55:11 "So shall be my word that comes out of my mouth; it will not return to me empty, but will do what I want, and it will be prospered in that so that I sent it."
The Word of God is eternal and fixed forever, knows no expiration date. He knows no time, no space, no distance. God always prospers His Word for the purpose for which He is sent.
6. The power of God rests on the Truth.
God does nothing outside of the Truth, for Truth is eternal, supernatural, and absolute. Truth can't be less than a person.
John 14:6 "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but for me."
John 16:13 "But when the Spirit of truth cometh, he will lead you to all truth;"
When we preach of the Truth there is power, because God confirms His Word.
You don't have to be a Shepherd, Apostol or Evangelist to operate in the supernatural. It can be a child, old man, man, woman, old, adult, or normal believer, who if he speaks and testifies of the Truth, God will support him with miracles, signs, and wonders.
When you speak the Word of Truth under the anointing of the Holy Ghost, the spirit of sickness, poverty, depression, or whatever has to come out.
Every demonic spirit knows that he is subject to the authority of the Word and that he must obey because his kingdom was defeated.
7. God's love is his power.
1 John 4:16 "And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love; and he who remains in love remains in God, and God in him."
God is love and has power. That love is supernatural. It doesn't change, it goes beyond reason.
What moves God to heal, or liberate, is the very act of love that led him to save humanity: His love.
There is no doubt that power originates and comes from God, and belongs to Him.
If you believe it, that power will be unleashed right now to heal, to liberate, to break every chain, to destroy every disease, in the name of Jesus.
