Relion article written by Dr. Bob Allen
Jesus told us in the sixteenth chapter of Mark to heal the sick and cast out devils. But first, you will have to know who you are in Christ Jesus and your place of authority in him. Beware of the devil. He will try to rob you of your standing in Christ and your authority. He is a supernatural, spiritual evil over his wicked kingdom. We are of the kingdom of God, and we have security.
Now remember Satan is no match for you if you are a child of God. We overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. (Revelation 12:11)
1John 3:8 Jesus said, “For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil.” Are you still in the battle? If so, get out of the ring. You’re a winner. He is the god of the fallen world and not the god of your world if you are in the Kingdom of God. Jesus gave us the victory.
The Father has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. He has picked us up and set us somewhere else. You are safe.
Luke 10:19 Jesus said,” I give you power over all the power of the enemy. The enemy has power, but you can stop his power, and you can beat him. God’s spirit in you is greater.
One of the greatest weapons of the devil is the power of lies. He is a liar and the father of it. The Lie, The devil’s foundation is built on it. The devil lied to Eve in the Garden of Eden. She believed the lie and brought sin into the whole world and upon all mankind. The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He comes to take away God’s best for your life and God’s promises to you. If you are caught up in a sinful lifestyle, you are helping him out.
Liars give the devil the right to bring everything evil into the family. The devil is the father of the lie. Jesus said of Satan he is a liar and the father of it. The Lord wants you to be free from the attack of your enemy, the devil. If you lie, you are speaking for the devil. He is helping you with your words. When you lie; Jesus says that the devil is your father. How do you think Father God feels when you neglect all of His promises and all of His provisions for you? The Father must weep when you reject the shed blood of His own Son, who is the Truth. Don’t leave the truth and believe the devil’s lies thinking that he will help you. He won’t. He has come to kill, steal and destroy.
When Satan speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it. If you use a lie, to manipulate someone to accomplish your will or purpose, you have just used the doctrine of the devil and showed no faith in God. That makes the devil your father. If you are the head of your house, and you are a liar, you will have a cursed house, and it will run through your family line until you repent. You have given the devil a seat at your table. Who’s your daddy?
John 8:44 Jesus said;” Ye are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.”
O, what hate God must have for the lie. Watch your tongue. Let’s take a look at where the lie will put you in the end.
Rev 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.”
Rev 21:27”: And there shall in no wise enter into heaven anything that defiles, neither whatsoever work abomination, nor makes a lie.” Watch what comes out of your mouth.
Prov19:22 “A poor man is better than a liar.”
Prov19:5 “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaks lies shall not escape.” Ops
Pro19:9 “He that speaks lies shall perish.” (That’s scary)
Ps101:7 “He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house.” Liars wake up. DON’T BURN IN HELL!!!
Luke 9:1” Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases.” He has now passed that authority on to us.
The Lord told Moses He would visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children through the 3rd and 4th generation. Are you doing things you hate, but can’t stop and don’t understand why? If you are a Christian, you can break these curses over yourself or others, in the name of Jesus! Go to God with the problem. Acknowledge the problem and then take authority over it and place it under the blood of Jesus. Then walk away and leave it there.
You say, Bob, what can I do? I see some of this in my life, in my own family. You may very well have a generational curse from your family. You could be under a curse for the sins of your forefathers. Activate God’s power, and deal with it. Make sure you stop lying. Is your son or daughter a liar just like you, dad?
Luke22:33 “Then, entered Satan into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve”.
Watch now how Satan took his seat at the Last Supper with Jesus and the twelve disciples. After Satan had entered Judas at the Lord’s table, he got up and left the room with the devil still in him.
John13:29 “ For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor”. Judas looked like a man going to buy a loaf of bread, yet the devil was in him. He fooled all of the apostles.
Luke22:48 “Jesus said unto him, Judas, betray thou the Son of man with a kiss?” When they arrested Jesus, Judas kissed him with the devil still in him. Yuk, twice!
Satan is called the prince of this world, but Remember; he is not your prince if you belong to God.
