Every believer should cast out demons

Every believer should cast out demons

“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons… “ See Mk. 16:17.

In Matthew 28:18, Christ declared: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” .

In Luke 10:19, Christ transferred that power/authority to the Believer saying, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you”.

Jesus Christ has given all Believers the power of attorney to act on HIS behalf.

If you have received Christ as LORD and Savior, you are empowered to cast out demons!

Can you imagine my consternation when a dear sister in the LORD wrote to me about her grandma’s sickness that was scaring her family because of its hereditary nature.

Because I knew she was a Believer I told her to release healing over her grandma and to tell the spirits to come out of her.

But her reply shocked me, she said she thought it was only ‘Pastors’ that are supposed to do that- that is ‘cast out demons’! Unbelievable!

Where did that come from?!

There are many Believers like her who think they are not graced enough to cast out demons, because they are told its a specialized ministry. Says who?

As we just read in the writings of Luke, CHRIST gave HIS DISCIPLES/FOLLOWERS the power of attorney to use the authority of HIS name to cast out demons/ engage in spiritual warfare.

Casting out demons is just ground level spiritual warfare! It’s as easy as saying ‘gerraout’!

As long as you have accepted Christ into your life by faith, you are born of GOD, and whatsoever is born of God is victorious over the world! The victory that overcomes the world is our Faith! – See 1Jn. 5:4

Church, spiritual warfare is a “GO!”

In Christ name, Go ye into the world, confront the forces of darkness with the shield of faith, cast out demons, ‘nothing shall by any means hurt you‘ Shalom!

Love Covers

“God cannot be mocked; a man reaps what he sows” Gal 6:7, NIV:
In any relationship, how you interact with the other person determines how that person will interact with you. This is so because people only notice what the other person says and does and then treat them accordingly. What you sow you reap. When people receive love and appreciation, they give back love and appreciation. When people receive criticisms and resentment, they give back what they have received also.
Dear people of GOD, we can no longer allow our basest instinct for survival influence our relationship with others.
When two people in a relationship react in anger instead of responding in love, then there is no one at the helm of the ship and the ship will hit the rocks.
The man is the stronger in the relationship and should therefore regain control by resolving issues instead of creating a circle of conflict by resisting, attacking and withdrawing, or else, the other partner(the weaker vessel) will put up and fortify walls, distance will grow and the experience of love will quickly fade away.
In CHRIST love, will you both stop hurting each other over and over again and feeling justified about your words and actions; and start working at rebuilding what you both have damaged in your God given relationship?

When relationships don’t work, it affects your whole personality and every aspect of your life.

The fear and upset can be so consuming as to make you lose all effectiveness .

To move forward becomes difficult . It would also affect your future relationships because you’ll be carrying the baggage of the past painful experience wherever you go.

Until you heal your relationships, you will never be totally free. The anger and hurts will follow you forever. It is to your advantage to work at healing your present relationship.

Any relationship can heal.

Healing starts when you see your role in the disharmony.

The key to restoring love is you! Shalom!
