DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART III) VITAL KEYS FOR CONFRONTING DARKNESS.
If you have been following this series, Dominion Over Darkness, you would have noticed that darkness was one of the first problems that God solved in Gen. 1. 1 John 3:8 says “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil”. What does it take to checkmate the devil? What does it take to chase darkness away? The manifestation of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Why is the world full of darkness today? Because those who should bring light have compromised and become part of the problem. Everything God created was created to solve a problem and you are as relevant as the problems you solve.
Eph. 2:5-6 says “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”. We are sitted together in Christ, the position of authority, the position of absolute power, the position of dominion. It is only in Christ that you can have dominion over darkness – in Christ, by Christ, through Christ. If you are not looking down when speaking to the powers of darkness, it means you are not standing right. Your position matters in spiritual warfare. What happens is that a lot of people get into spiritual legislation outside Christ and so they pray and nothing happens. You must know how to ascend. The ascension life is not automatic. You must say, like Apostle Paul in Gal. 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless, I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”. People want to do the ascension without crucifixion. That is where the problem lies.
Rom. 16:20 “And the God of peace shall bruise satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen”. This is a complete prayer. Satan is supposed to be under our feet, so when talking to satan and his agents, you must be looking down. Rev. 12:11 says “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death”. What is your testimony? You must learn to speak the word of God to every situation; you must learn to confront every unsatisfactoriness of things in your life with the right decrees. God prescription is; allow the Holy Spirit to move and then speak what you want to see. Don’t speak your fears, don’t speak your doubts, don’t speak the voice of the crowd. There is a correct thing to say that will produce transformation. God literally spoke the world into existence and the beautiful thing is that he has given us the mandate to do so. Are you connected to the Almighty? You can operate in the highest. Matt. 18:18 “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”. To bind here means to disallow, whatever you allow is allowed. With this wonderful key, you can lock darkness out of your life forever. You can allow light to shine through your life and bring transformation. You can become a transformer. You can change the story of your family forever.
Luke 10:19 says “Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall be any means hurt you”. Anytime I am invited for a dangerous assignment, this is the scripture I like to use. You must be a mountain mover.
