ENFORCE YOUR DOMINION

SCRIPTURE READING

So they arrived at the other side of the lake, in the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus climbed out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the burial caves and could no longer be restrained, even with a chain. Whenever he was put into chains and shackles—as he often was—he snapped the chains from his wrists and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Day and night he wandered among the burial caves and in the hills, howling and cutting himself with sharp stones. When Jesus was still some distance away, the man saw him, ran to meet him, and bowed low before him. With a shriek, he screamed, “Why are you interfering with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In the name of God, I beg you, don’t torture me!” For Jesus had already said to the spirit, “Come out of the man, you evil spirit.” Then Jesus demanded, “What is your name?” And he replied, “My name is Legion, because there are many of us inside this man.” Then the evil spirits begged him again and again not to send them to some distant place. There happened to be a large herd of pigs feeding on the hillside nearby. “Send us into those pigs,” the spirits begged. “Let us enter them.” So Jesus gave them permission. The evil spirits came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the entire herd of about 2,000 pigs plunged down the steep hillside into the lake and drowned in the water. The herdsmen fled to the nearby town and the surrounding countryside, spreading the news as they ran. People rushed out to see what had happened. A crowd soon gathered around Jesus, and they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons. He was sitting there fully clothed and perfectly sane, and they were all afraid.

Mark 5:1-15

WORD FOR TODAY

Many aren’t exercising authority given to them to dominate on earth. Even in the spirit you have been made a little lower than angels of light (Psalms 8:5).

1. First as a human, you are not ordinary in the spirit and in the physical. Secondly, you are more than extraordinary when you are in Christ.
If you have angels to minister to you, what are foul spirits that you cannot subdue in the spirit?

2. The mad man of Gadara could house a legion of demons and he only went insane. The same demons possessed A HERD of pigs and the pigs could not survive it. Hnmm…. this should tell you that our spiritual make up is very powerful.

3. Imagine, no chains could hold down one man possessed by unclean spirits. How much more power you’ll exhibit, being filled with the power of light that darkness cannot comprehend. No chains, yoke, fetter of the enemy can bring you down if you take your place in the spirit consciously.

4. The foul spirit knew who they were… Some of us cannot even identify as the power house that we are. Who are you in the spirit? When you are addressed by anyone in the spirit or in the physical you should have an ever ready answer to affirm who you are as a child of God.

Enforce your authority

Remember. You are a walking 1 Peter 2:9

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NLT

There are so many affirmations to be registered in your spirit. I will outline a few shortly.

5. The foul spirits could identify the Spirit of the One who confronted them. They understood His power of dominance as the Son of God. They understand heirachy in the spirit realm. Do not be like the seven sons of Sceva in Acts chapter 19 who were assessed in the spirit and found lower because of darkness that was found in them. Be a woman of AUTHORITY, be a woman of LIGHT.

Luke 10:19
You have been given the power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over EVERY power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means touch you because YOUR TEMPLE IS FLOODED WITH THE LIGHT OF JESUS. Since Christ is in you, the enemy has no option but to submit.

A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!” Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.

Acts 19:13-16

It is a spiritual world we live in beloved. Take your place in dominion. It is your right as a child of God. Woman of God know thyself.

AFFIRMATIONS TO HAVE HANDY

God has given me authority over all the power of the enemy, and I will walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure me.
Luke 10:19 NLT

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
Psalms 3:6 NKJV

I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are God’s works, And that my soul knows very well.
Psalms 139:14 NKJV

No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against me in judgment I shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and my righteousness is from the Lord.
Isaiah 54:17 NKJV

FIVE REASONS YOU SHOULD NEVER HURT A WOMAN

By Evangelist Henry Elochukwu

YOU NO DEY USE ME PLAY
  1. WOMEN ARE THE DOORS OF THE EARTH.

A door determines the entrance and the exits of a thing, Wether good or bad…

Sin entered the world through a Woman(Eve) and also left the world through A woman(Mary)..

Hurting a woman is like closing doors of generations unborn and generations to come…

I have gone for a family deliverance where a whole family were suffering from untimely death due to the atrocity of their grandfather who raped a virgin to death.. whom before she died placed a curse on him and his entire generations to come..Now the innocent children are suffering it…

2. WOMEN ARE PRECIOUS TOOLS IN THE HAND OF GOD.

The Bible calls them “weaker vessels” not because of their physical strength but because they are flexible tools of usage in the hand of God or Satan, Depending on whom they yield themselves to and could be very extreme in services or worship…

Have never seen a prayer that is as powerful as the prayer of A woman!..God delight so much in them and accepts their prayers faster.Becareful not to be a woman’s heart breaking prayer point…

This is why they easily fall under the anointing or get possessed easily by the devil..They are flexible to easily blend with any force that they yield themselves to..

This is also Why Angels appeared to Women a lot in the Bible…Infact the first Person Jesus appeared to when He resurrected from the grave was a Woman”Mary mandalene”….She became the first Evangelist in the New Testament!

3. THE BIBLE CALL’S THEM “HELPERS”

A Helper is someone who helps you stand in the midst of all weaknesses!!!..Women are physically &Spiritually stronger in the terms of Help in all ramifications!…

If a woman helps you to stand…You will stand without shaking but if she decides to bring you down..You are finished!!! Samson will tell you better!!

4. WOMEN ARE THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE ON EARTH.

Jesus is a seed of a Woman and at the mention of His name all seeds of men from Genesis to revelation shall bow down and worship Him(seed of a woman)

Anyone who hurts her is like a timed bomb waiting to explode without recoveries!!..

My grandmum once told me, If I want to go far in life I should never deliberately hurt a good Woman..

5. WOMEN ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.

A world without them, is like a forest without trees…

A world with them is like A river without water…

The Earth without them…Is like a world without people!!!

Let’s value and care for all our good Women and stop hurting and instilling fear of the unknown!

Let’s treasure them and not torture them!..

SAY NO TO RAPE!!!

SAY NO TO ABUSE!!

SAY NO TO HOME VIOLENCE

Justice shall prevail for UWA and all those who died of rape, sexual abuse and home violence!!

It is well

THE MYSTERY OF– ‘IT IS WRITTEN’

‘Way Maker’ by Sinach

I am trusting God that you are well in mind, soul and body as I bring to you another word laid in my spirit today. Halleluyah!

GUARD YOUR SALVATION AND VIRTUES JEALOUSLY

God wants us to understand a truth, that He so loved the world(without reason), that he gave his only son to die for us. GOD LOVES EVERY HUMAN HE CREATED UNCONDITIONALLY. There you have it, the summary of my message to you!

Why is He telling us this today? He wants us to know that letting our guards down as children of God, is at our own risks. He isn’t going to hate on a person who brought you to a place of pain, shame and reproach because you let your guard down to be attacked. God hates sin, he doesn’t hate man. Once the mercy of God finds a soul who genuinely repents of their sin, they become God’s own and a candidate for heaven instantly. If you are not careful, having a heart of vengeance because you were hurt by any of them prior to their being saved, will land you in hell if death kisses you unprepared.

Put on the whole armor of God for your own safety. Heaven’s race is personal. Guard your salvation and virtues jealously beloved. The one who broke your heart, committed murder, molested you etc is running his or her personal race. Ensure you aren’t a victim of attacks. They may find heaven before you, God have mercy. Be sober, be vigilant so you aren’t devoured or messed up by the enemy. It is easier to prevent happenings than to pray for restoration.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

Ephesians 6:10-18

HOW DO WE FIGHT VICTORIOUS?

It is very important that we study the word of God always. Meditate on the word so we can use this to rebuke the adversary.

Without the word which is the sword of the Spirit, we are powerless. Never forget this for a second.

Our Christ Jesus, resisted the devil thrice with the written word. You just have to arm yourself with the word of God if not you’ll end up a mince meat for the devil.

How much of the word do you take in warrior? How regular do you take in the word?

It is a spiritual life we have and the mystery is made plain before our eyes through the word of God in Matthew 4. If the Son of God had to employ the word as a weapon, then you cannot survive a face-off with the enemy without the word.

IT IS WRITTEN is your weapon of warfare, use it effectively.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ” Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

Matthew 4:1-11

THE ROCK THAT’S HIGHER THAN I

Lion of Judah by Lebo Sekgobela

From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalms 61:2

Have you like the Psalmist been relegated to the ends of the earth by the enemy of your purpose and destiny? Are you in a position of utter ruin, a design of the enemy unto perdition? Or you are in a place of perpetual pain. A place of deep hurt that locks you out, a place of regret, wishing you had done things differently given the despair you experience?

That point where you feel no one born of man can reach in to save you, like Ishmael the son of Hagar. The very same situation Samson, son of Manoah found himself where the very light of his life had been quenched through the searing iron of disobedience, on the laps of lust. At a time; Daniel, Shedrach, Meshach and Abednigo buried their head in the face of death, thinking the end has come.

Hagar and Ishmael

Perhaps you are overwhelmed with pain pangs of addiction, fighting a seeming lost battle with every drug dose you take even when you swore the previous would be your last. Withdrawn from your very self, you have become the reflection of a shadow of what is programmed for your once vibrant spirit… the shackles of death.

Rejected and scorned like Tamar, abused and subdued…. oh Dinah, no one really cared how you cascaded down the staircase of distraught, not given a chance to decide what happens in your life. You just flowed, floating in a life of confinement dictated by the ones who should love you.

Aha! the pain of an aggrieved wife who seek daily for the comfort of a man she tied her soul to, a man who never graced her love with kindness but broke her heart bit by bit and into irredeemable pieces with his adulterous spirit and abuse.

What ends of the earth have you found yourself today? God’s hands is not shortened that he cannot reach you when you are overwhelmed with grief. Cry out like the little warrior Ishmael. There is a point where you just must give up on trying keep your head afloat by your own power. Haven’t you realised that you can’t by your own strength deliver yourself? God is waiting for you to trust in Him completely for your deliverance. For it is not by power nor by might but by the Spirit of the living God.

Cry out woman of God! Let the Lord glory in your weakness. You have done this all on your own and it time for the Rock that is Higher than you to take over. If he could hear the blood of Abel cry out for vengeance, he will surely hear you even now.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

2Corinthians 12:9

Let the fourth man arise in the fire for you, cry out! Dinah, the Lord sees your pain, Tamar He feels your heartbreak and Samson no more will you mill the grains of the enemy, Your God will arise to position you on that Rock that is Higher than you.

“Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Daniel 3:25
The fourth man in the fire

You will begin to feel love again. You will live again. The covenant of the blood of Jesus will override the potency of addiction. Light is returning to you.

Abba will hear your cry when you call from the depths in groaning like Hannah. You will safely rest in Jesus, the Rock higher than you where no demon can lay a finger on you again .

Make this your prayer today,

FATHER, LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I. JESUS SON OF THE LIVING GOD, COME THROUGH FOR ME.
