DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART II)
Gen. 1:14-16 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years, and let them be for lights … And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also”. This scripture shows the creation of lights. God created lights firstly, to give light to the earth; secondly, to identify the day and the night and thirdly to identify the seasons. These are the reasons why God created light. There are two great lights that God created – the Sun and the Moon – the sun responsible for day and the moon responsible for night. God also created the stars. Who are the worshippers of the moon and the stars? Children of kedar. They are the lesser lights. By their symbols, ye shall know them. Who are the moon and the stargazers?
Take note that the enemy strikes most in the night “when men slept” according to Matt. 13: 24-30. When men slept, the enemy came to sow tares. Night is the time that the enemy operates most; it is the time of sowing of tares, it is the time of abortion of blessings, it is the time of distortion of destinies and hijacking of released blessings. Night is the time when the thief operates most and the thief comes not but to steal, to kill and to destroy. Night is the time when kidnappers of blessings and destroyers operate, night is the time that witches are let loose, they meet in the night. Night is the time that agents of darkness gather to have their own special assembly, night is the time when wild beasts are released; night is the time that robbers are on the sprawl. Night is the time that the enemy comes to sow tares; a healthy person goes to bed in the night and wakes up with an evil growth. When did it happen? When such a person goes to the hospital, they will give the growth a name and then begin to treat something that is essentially spiritual, physically.
The transition hour between 12am and 3am is a very sensitive time. That is when the agents of darkness operate mostly and that is the best time to confront them. A long time ago, as a bachelor, I had a 3-bedroom apartment, which I shared with my friends. One day, I returned from work to find a dirty looking girl in the sitting room. One of my friends that I shared the flat with then explained to me that the girl is his 17-year old cousin whom he found loitering around an environment on his way to work, he explained that at first he didn’t recognize her because she was supposed to be several kilometers away from Lagos, where we live. After interacting with her, he got a confirmation that she was his cousin and he decided to bring her home. Fortunately, there was a prayer meeting at the Church that day so I advised my friend to come along with her. She was virtually dragged into the Church because she refused to enter when we got to the vicinity of the Church. It was a very tough deliverance session. One of the greatest lessons I learnt from her was that deliverance is a process and it is for a willing heart, you cannot force it on anybody. Her deliverance was partial because it was forced on her. You can cast out a demon out of people by force but you cannot retain it for them. The person concerned must be ready otherwise; the demons will reinforce and come back. In the night, I sensed that something was wrong so I went to her bedroom and to my surprise, she was gone. I called the attention of my friend that night and our combined effort to wake her up proved abortive. We practically dragged her to the sitting room and when eventually she woke up, we asked her where she went and she told us that midnight is the period that they operate. This girl could transform into another personality entirely within seconds. She told us that she came to Lagos with a mission to destroy a man of God who was scheduled to hold a crusade in Lagos. She further confirmed that she was warned that she was going to meet a very serious Christian and as such, she should be careful. I asked her how she can identity a serious Christian and she told me that it is through their eyes. According to her, every child of God has fire; but that most Christians have very weak fire and such Christians are a walkover for them. The world is sick and advanced in satanic technology. We are now in the time that Isaiah prophesied in Isa. 60:1-2, that “darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people” and that is why the first part of this scripture calls you to arise. One day around 10pm, I had a ministration to go and pray for her, so I went to her room and asked if she was ready to be delivered and she answered in the affirmative. I asked her to say “Jesus, deliver me”. For the first time, she was able to complete the sentence, so in excitement, I called my friend to witness the prayers. I gave a short command and she started manifesting and vomiting. Eventually, she passed out. There is power in the name of Jesus. There is power in the blood of Jesus. There is power in the Holy Ghost. Let us learn to maximize who we are in Christ and what we have in Christ and the kingdom of darkness will bow. Darkness must succumb to light and not the other way round.
