MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 14 September 2020 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Power To Make The Devil Tremble
TOPIC: Power To Make The Devil Tremble
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 6
FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 2:19; Luke 4:33-36 (KJV)
James 2:19; Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
34 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.
35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.
36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
MEMORY VERSE: “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” – Daniel 9:24
If everybody is talking nicely about you and nobody comes up with a critical statement, then you have failed woefully.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
ANYTHING THAT THE ENEMY IS BRINGING TO CHALLENGE YOU, LET THE POWER OF GOD BREAK THE CHALLENGE INTO PIECES, IN JESUS’ NAME.
Today, you are going to learn more about power to make the devil tremble. When you know what you are doing, the devil will tremble. When you don’t know what you are doing, he knows. Evil powers can see. So, we need to equip ourselves with spiritual weapons.
A sister who was kidnapped, started praying and everything began to scatter in the place where she was kept. Her kidnappers gave her a serious warning against praying, but she persisted in praying silently. They sensed that she was still praying and ordered her to stop. She then used her finger to write the “blood of Jesus” on the ground. What followed was that the whole place started turning upside down, because of the power in the blood. You must know and understand the weapons that you have and be able to use them.
Today’s passage illustrates the power that resides in the name of Jesus. Evil spirits recognize that power and wherever they are camped, when they are brought face to face with the name of Jesus and the power of the blood of the Lamb, they become subdued and calm. The name of Jesus makes the evil spirit to scream. One single command given in the name of Jesus will silence powerful demons. We need power today. Oh, how I wish that all believers will understand the raw power of God and experience the destructive impact it makes on the devil! We need to witness in today’s churches and around us more of the amazement felt by those who witnessed the demolition of “the spirit of an unclean devil” in the demon-possessed man healed by Jesus in the church at Capernaum.
- I cut myself off from all cobra, serpentine and ancestral worship, in the name of Jesus.
- I repent of all serpent worship and worship of animal deities and forces of air, fire, water, the nether world and nature, in the name of Jesus.
- I command all serpentine and scorpion spirits to depart and go now, in the name of Jesus.
- I release myself from every serpentine bites and poisons, in the name of Jesus.
- Let every scorpion set in motion against me be rendered sting-less, in the name of Jesus.
- Let every serpent set in motion against my spiritual progress be rendered venom-less, in the name of Jesus.
- Let satanic serpents dispatched against me receive madness, in the name of Jesus.
