DOMINION OVER SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS 1E
The Bible says in 1 John 5:19, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” Almost every corridor of power is possessed by the adversary. The devil is interested in corridors of power. The concentration of money in the hands of the ungodly is mind-boggling. Some believers work in occultic firms; the real owners of such firms are occultists. Anyone who is capable of doing anything in order to get money is dangerous. Anyone who does not have dominion over money cannot have dominion over spiritual wickedness. The person will be bought over easily by wicked powers. The devil is always looking for whom to recruit and he has his agents all over the place. He is ready to give anything in order to take the soul. He does not give anything freely. All his gifts are full of worms.
Every organization has a ruling spirit; if you don’t know the ruling spirit in the organization where you work, you will miss out. This is one of the ways by which people embrace the devil. Just because one Adolf Hitler was in power in Germany, six million Jews perished!
The wicked are in great power because the righteous failed to do the right thing. God did not call you just to be a Churchgoer, he has called you to be an enforcer of righteousness. How much of it have you enforced? From today, may things never go wrong where you are in charge in the name of Jesus. In some families, the house maid has taken over the home. In the realm of the spirit, she is in control of the home because the men are so busy chasing after money.
The Bible says the dark places of the earth are full of habitation of wickedness (Psa.74:20). The Bible also says the wicked are in great power (Psa. 37:35). The wicked are in great power because many a time, the righteous shy away from political power. They believe that it is too dirty an arena, some even believe that it is of the devil. That is not scriptural. God is interested in leadership. Politics is dirty because dirty people have taken it over, politics on its own is not dirty. The issue is not about the Church getting involved in politics but about the kind of people the Church is sending there – are they people who go there to share booties and eat the dainties and swine’s food? Will they promote corruption and lose their testimony because Jesus said, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36). It is the quality of Christians the Church is producing that is the issue. Who should call the shots? To whom has God given power over the power of the enemy? If you are lusting after money, ensure that you don’t go into politics, there is no way you can survive if you do. Daniel made a name for himself because he took a quality decision. He purposed in his heart that he was not going to be defiled by the food from the king’s table (Dan. 1:8).
- Everlasting and most merciful Father, I worship and adore you. Grant me the grace to love what you love, hate what you hate, and to work hand-in-hand with you so that your purpose will be fulfilled in every facet of my life.
