The titles of the Devil
- He is clearly revealed as the dragon in Rev. 20:1-2.
“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and satan, and bound him a thousand years.” The doom of the devil has been programmed in the scheme of things of God. The beautiful thing about the word of God is that we don’t have to wait for the angel to come and bind him, we can do the binding on our own and forbid the dragon from operating in our environment. That is the reason why God left us here on earth. Devil is the originator of everything that is evil. He is diabolic. All evil and imperfect gifts originate from his throne. All good and perfect gifts are from God. Matt. 18:18 gives us the power to bind. Comprehensive authority has been given to the Church. Whatever we bind here means whatever we forbid. We can forbid the operation of the dragon. If you know that Jesus Christ has given you dominion over the devil, who is that small demon in his kingdom that can mesmerize you? We need to live ready in the world today because of the events that will unfold in this end time. The purpose of this message is for you to identify the characteristics of the enemy and for you to resist him. He can come in diverse ways to distort, deceive, derail, seduce, defile – these are enemies of your ascension life, you have the responsibility to say no. Whatever you allow is allowed in heaven and whatever you forbid is forbidden. To bind means to forbid. Matt. 18:18 gives us the authority to bind whatsoever including the dragon, satan and every unsatisfactoriness of things. If you allow it, it continues to operate but if you forbid it, it will cease. Make a list of all the things you want to bind this year and begin to bind them. After binding, remember to make declarations. Don’t tolerate any nonsense because what you tolerate you cannot change. Declare what you want and go for it in the name of Jesus. Desire a change. You must order for something different this year. Be a radical. Get angry enough in spirit to desire a change. This is a key you must put to use this year. This is our year of good tidings and great joy. It is better to do something for God than to fold your hands, don’t park. Anyone who parks attract dust and soon starts decaying. God knows your heart, give God your best this year and soon you will be the best. When you form the habit of giving God your best, before long, God will begin to give you the best; he is the One who gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater. God will ensure that you never lack; he will ensure that you always have the best to give him. I have tried this and it worked.
When I decided to start giving offering of the highest denomination with me, it was not easy initially but as higher denominations of the currency were being rolled out, I still adhered to this because God made it possible for me. After a while God told me to beef up the offering. Giving God your best is a promotion. You can never outgive God. In addition, don’t play games with holiness this year. The God we serve is thrice holy. Without holiness no one shall see him. Give God space in the garden of your heart. Adam allowed the snake to enter the garden. That was where the problem was. And when he fell, he did not tell God that he was sorry, rather, he said, it is the woman you gave me. Ingratitude and buck passing!
