Power and Authority to Destroy The Devil's Works

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.

How to Instruct Our Children in the Lord

Our children have an enemy and this society the way it lives now is an enemy for our children. And that is why we must instruct them in such a way that it prepares them to forge in them a barrier around them, that he forges in them a belief system and founded them with a faith that is unshakable when they are no longer at home.

It is important that we realize that children are currently born in a war because they have an enemy who would want to defeat them morally, to move away from their belief system, an enemy who would like to flip the Word of God again, make them forget it and that live completely away from God.

So, anyone who wants to be an enemy of your child, should be your enemy too, for the simple reason that your children are part of your life, are part of who you are and as Fathers, we have the great responsibility to instruct you on the path that will make your lives what you are God had set out to make them. So that their lives are not lost, nor destroyed by bad and vile things.

Proverbs 22:6 "Instruct the child in his way, and even when he is old he will not depart from him."

 This verculent of God's Word does not tell us to be a counsel, but rather to be a very clear commandment from God.

It instructs the child in his way, entails the word dedication, implies commitment to instruct the child on the right, just, well, the most profitable path for them, the path that fits with God's plans and purposes. This is a god-specific mandate from God.

And no matter what the world says, we have a great responsibility on our children, we cannot make excuses, because otherwise we would be disobeying God.

So how do we instruct our children?

1. Give them quality time.

They need you, they don't need the maid, or your nanny, they need you. What's more, there's no substitute for you.

We must know that the time you spend on your children is an investment. It's an investment for eternity, because you're the most important person to them.

2, Listen to them carefully.

The reason children don't listen to their parents is because their parents didn't listen to them early. That's why when your children enter their offices or wherever they are, we must stop from doing what we are doing and listening to them.

You don't need any education to stop listening to them and it's not stopping to listen with the TV on, or with your favorite music, or with the newspaper in your hand and the magazine on the other, or in front of the computer, watching you out of your mind.

NO, think about this! you're raising someone who will pass in eternity somewhere.

They deserve all your attention and listen to them very carefully.

3. Acknowledge your mistakes as A Father.

If he admits he's wrong at some point, it knocks down a barrier and strengthens a relationship, because we're all wrong many times. Because we're not going to admit it if we do it before God.

That builds them up.

Because if we do, then they'll come and tell them what they've done wrong. If you don't admit your mistakes, that's going to lift a barrier and then you're going somewhere else to talk to someone else. And if you go with your friends, they'll move further away from you.

Instructing them does not require great education, but wisdom, willingness, and love to do so.

4. Love them unconditionally.

You must love your children no matter what their appearance, or whatever their responsibility, or how wise, or how uneasy they are.

1 Corinthians 13:8 "Love never fails."

5. Discipline your children motivated by a desire to protect them.

Not out of anger, not because he wants to punish him, but he must be motivated by a desire to protect them. Don't punish it with your hands because that's devastating, as it's a part of you that's used against you, but if you take a stick, psychologically it's astonishing. Speak another way.

6. Encourage them to be the best they can be.

Whatever you do, look your best, do your best, and I know the best.

7. Guide them to understand well that they will finally be held accountable to God.

If you think you should be held accountable, when you are no longer home they will do what you want, but if you realize God, that makes a difference.

They must learn to ask God if what they are going to do is ok.

8. Teach them that the most important thing in life is their close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

This means relating to Him, spending time with Him.

9. Teach them to spend time daily in the Word of God and in prayer.

Because that will be the beat of their lives. In His Word, He will show you what to do, what not to do, where to go or where not to go, with whom to go.

The answers to true life are found in the Word of God. Reading the Word is vital.

Psalm 119:105 "Lamp is at my feet thy word, and light my way."

If I don't read the Word, I won't be a light in my way and I'll stumble. They will do it if they see us reading the Word.

10. Record in your mind from early on that God has a plan for their lives.

It means that God has a plan for their lives, that He has a future in his mind, who they will marry, what they will do in their lives, in which they will invest their lives, etc.

If you repeat it constantly, then they will start asking God what that plan is. Then they'll go to the source, start talking to God about it. And what they will do is start praying, and ask God, "show me what I must do, what you will do with my life."

11. Obey God and leave the consequences in His hands to Him.

And if you record that in your children's hearts earlier, then you have taught him to recognize God's sovereignity in their lives.

That God cares about them and that God has the right to give direction to their lives.

Obey God, trust in God, and leave the consequences in your hands.

 

If you take these 11 ideas and begin to hold them in their hearts, I assure you that your children will leave your home, prepared, armed, ready against the enemy, willing and courageous to stand in front of your friends and take a position defined by the truth of the Word of God.

They will stand firm and faithful to God and honor Him.

What will motivate them to do so is our love for them, our desire to see them saved from an early age, our desire to see them achieve their achievements and to reach their full potential and beyond the danger around them.

OR: Heavenly Father, at this hour, I come before your presence to ask you to be aware Fathers of our responsibility to institute our children according to these principles. Help us to be firm, accountable, and dedicated, so that our children honor you all your lives. In the name of Jesus. Love.

Free of Guilt

When we ingest the voice of conscience and do something wrong, we feel guilty. Others without having done something wrong feel the same way, and feel that way, because something happened in the past or in the present. Sometimes they know why, or they just say they feel guilty and they don't know why. It's like they're living in a cloud of guilt that makes them feel bitter and has been getting in their way.

Because of that, those people who feel this way have lost their joy, their security, their confidence, they have no direction, nor do they try to achieve something, and they drift, like walking in darkness.

The important thing in these cases is how to be free and have a victory over the guilt.

Let's look at an example in the Word of God, which shows a perfect example of guilt.

John 8:1-11" and Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. And in the morning he returned to the temple, and all the people came unto him; and sitting down, he taught them. Then the scribes and Pharisees brought him a woman caught in adultery; and putting her in the middle, they said unto her, Master, this woman has been caught in the very act of adultery. And in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So, what do you say? But this they said tempting him, so that I could accuse him. But Jesus, leaning toward the ground, wrote on the ground with his finger. And as they insisted on asking him, he straightened himself up and said unto them, He that is sinless of you is the first to cast the stone against it. And leaning back to the ground, he continued to write on the ground. But they, upon hearing this, accused by their conscience, went out one by one, starting from the oldest to the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman who was in the middle. Jesus straightened up, and seeing no one but the woman, said unto him, Woman, where are the accusers? None of them counted thee? Then Jesus said unto him, Neither do I count thee; go away, and sin no more."

Here is a woman, who was caught in the act of adultery. We could imagine the internal conflict of this woman by being accused of adultery and therefore destined for death according to the Mosaic Law. Probably a feeling of shame, of terror so it would happen to him because according to the Law, he should die slapping.

A feeling not only of shame but of indignation, dirty. However, seeing Jesus face to face. Something happened to him. She knew at that moment that she was the Son of God, she felt her forgiveness. God cleansed her in front of everyone as people retreated one by one.

Jesus Christ does not devote himself to rubbing things away from us. Your desire and longing is to cleanse our lives so that we don't feel guilty. He said unto this woman, Where are those who accused you," None condened thee, she said, No Lord. Then Jesus said unto him, Neither do I count thee; Go away and sin no more.

That it was ours if we had not come to Christ Jesus.

We have to define where guilt comes from: it is the result of doing something wrong or a bad deed, of having broken the commandments or the laws of God. It may be by oneself or as a result of someone else's actions.

Regardless, it is a satana trap to stop God's blessing for our lives.

Another clear example would be of a young woman who has been abused by her father for several years. If you ask that young lady, I'd tell her she feels guilty, even though he was the culprit. She did nothing, because she was forced to do it.

Or else, the case of a mother who is pregnant and just before giving birth, loses the baby. It's easy for the mother, she wondered, what I did, my God because you punished me with this, because you took my baby,?, which I did wrong, I should not have worked !, so the mother feels guilty about which she is not to blame.

So what are the consequences when we feel guilty?

1. Fear that it will be rejected or rejected by God.

2. Feeling that God is going to punish him for what he did.

People who feel guilty think God could punish you at any moment. People live with that fear: today I could suffer an accident, my children could suffer something today, our house could burn down, I could lose my job.

Satanas will attack you in any way to make you feel guilty.

3. It is inundated with a feeling of anguish, worry, or depression.

4. He's got a divided mind.

Feeling guilty prevents you from having a mental unit.

5. Exhaustion arises from having a divided mind.

Guilt depletes the energy of our lives.

6. It comes to have a feeling of self-punishment.

They feel they deserve to be punished.

7. There's a sense of insecurity.

Feeling guilty before God will make you feel insecurity in your life, so feeling guilt, we do not feel the protection, nor the love of God. And all kinds of thoughts will come that feels guilty before Almighty God.

8. Guilt prevents prayer.

When you're praying, satanas will remind you of something about your past or something you did yesterday, so you feel guilty. Remember that when there is guilt and faith, there is a conflict. Guilt completely destroys a person's faith.

We cannot live with guilt and at the same time have a good relationship with God. Not with anyone.

It sounds like a lie, but a man who feels guilty will be tough on his wife and children. The same goes for women.

9. The loss of sense of courage.

If someone feels guilty, they'll feel bad. You feel like they're bad people because of the weight of guilt.

10. Feeling guilty is accompanied by a feeling of shame.

The truth is that whoever disobeys God must be ashamed.

11. Believe it or not, diseases will come.

You can't live feeling guilty, without your body being billed in the long run.

So, how do we get rid of the guilt?

1. Understand what Christ did on the cross of ordeal.

Isaias 53:4-5 " He certainly bore our sicknesses, and suffered our pains; and we had him whipped, wounded by God, and dejected. But he was wounded by our rebellions, ground for our sins; the punishment of our peace was upon him, and by his sore we were healed."

This means that Jesus when he went to the cross of Ordeal and gave his life for us, He took our guilt, took our punishment, took our pain, took for himself our suffering, the Lamb of God died as our substitute paying the price for our Sins.

That is why we have the right and authority of the Almighty God to confess and repent, knowing that there is nothing to pay.

There are people who declare it and repent, but they spend their lives trying to make amends for what they have done and cannot make amends. But they can still confront him.

2. Face feelings of guilt sincerely.

This means identifying the cause of that guilt, confessing it before God, repenting, and moving away from it. But remember, your pay does not apply to your life, but until you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.

3. Trust in God's forgiveness.

Keep this in mind: What God forgives, He does not hold it against us, because He understands each of us, He knows every detail of us.

We cannot tell him anything he does not know, there is no information he needs, because what He wants is to listen to our sincerity, our genuine repentance, and dedication of our lives. Because with it comes your forgiveness, cleanliness and new beginning.

No matter who you are and what the circumstances are, but you do decide to hold on to that guilt, you will suffer the consequences.

4. Turn that sin into a blessing through our testimony.

And may others in this way know Christ through their testimony, either to accept Jesus as Savior, or to be delivered from their guilt.

Now, I'll ask you: do you feel guilty about anything? Remember, Christ paid the penalty, so we don't have to live with a feeling of guilt. But if you feel guilt, for God's sake, for your happiness, joy, peace, prosperity, and fulfilling God's purpose in your life, CONFRONTELO.

Don't keep avoiding him, God will set you free. He said, I came to deliver the captives from anything that obstructs our relationship with God.

Let us pray: Heavenly Father, I come before your presence, to ask you for forgiveness for my sins, I regret having committed them. Come to my heart and fill me with your Holy Spirit, show me your ways and open my spiritual eyes. I promise to follow in your footsteps and keep your commandments and precepts. Love.

Likewise, Lord, I have been confessing that guilt that I have been feeling for a while ago, I confess it before you, and I ask forgiveness for that pain, that resentment, that envy, that fear, having abused ________, or having been_______________ You know my heart, forgive me, I repent, I depart from that, from today, in the name of Jesus. Love
