Power and Authority To Cast Out Demons

Introduction

“And

signs will follow to those believing these things, they will cast out demons in My name…” Mark 16:17

“And having called together His disciples, He gave

them power and authority over all the demons, and to heal diseases.” Luke 9:1

“Behold,

I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you”. Luke 10:10 KJ

What do you understand when you read “those believing will cast out demons…” and “He gave them power and authority over all the demons” and “I give unto you power…”? Have you spiritually discerned what it means to operate in His name and to operate in the power and authority given to you, over all the power of the enemy and to cast out devils? If so, is this word of the kingdom fully understood in your heart? Why? Because if not the devil comes immediately to catch away that which is sown in the heart? (Matthew 13:19) If you have misunderstood the teaching and are in error, he will battle you to keep you from the truth. The word of the kingdom that is “sown on the good ground is this; the one hearing the word, and understanding it; who indeed brings forth and produces fruit, one truly a hundredfold; and one sixty, and one thirty.” Matthew 13:23

6


For many years I had not received thirty fold or sixty fold, let alone a hundredfold against the kingdom of darkness, my warfare against devils produced no fruit, it was inoperative and ineffective without true power and authority. Why? Because I had misunderstood the doctrine on “I give you power and authority… and by My name shall they cast out devils” In addition, I had misunderstood the scripture “Whatever you bind on earth shall occur… and whatever you loose on earth shall be…(Matthew 18:18) I bound, I loosed, I warfared, I cast out; I prayed prayer strategies that executed judgment and wondered why my warfare was not operative, active and effective. Then, to my own detriment I verbalized my adversary when “even the archangel Michael did not bring a judgment of blasphemy against the adversary” (Jude 9). I did not understand the word of the kingdom concerning “power and authority” or what “in My name” meant, and I thought “at the name of Jesus every knee had to bow…” But today I understand the word of the Kingdom of power and authority our King of Kings has given us, and what in My name means. So I have written a brief overview on what it means when He gives us “power and authority” and “in my name they shall cast out devils.”

Chapter 1 The Authority of The Word

“And coming up Jesus talked with them, saying, All authority in Heaven and on earth was given to Me.”

Matthew 28:18

The word reveals that Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and earth. Now we know the word reveals Jesus came as the second Adam and reconciled all things to Himself. Not back to us to have the rule and dominion that was given to the first Adam. “So also it has been written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul,” the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 15:45 “and through Him making peace by the blood of His cross to reconcile all things to Himself through Him, whether the things on the earth, or the things in the heavens.” Colossians 1:20 Now we also know we are not of this world our citizenship is in the Kingdom of God (Ephesians 2:19), He choose us (John 15:16), The Lamb upon the throne. So in this Kingdom we are under His authority within the authority of His set laws – His Word. Metaphorically speaking, His constitution - His Word the Bible, and the Word of God cannot be broken (John 10:34-35) cannot be voted out. His word cannot be changed; forever it is settled in heaven (Psalms 119:89). We are not in a democratic Government, but under a Ruling King in a Kingdom, the Government is on His shoulders. He sets the laws, the terms on how to live as one who belongs to His Kingdom. He sets the instructions on how to act, how to think, how to pray, how to behave, how to prosper, how to heal, how to demolish strongholds, how to cast out devils, how to exercise power and authority, how to enforce the might of the power of The Kingdom.

We cannot act according to our kingdom of the flesh, our kingdom come, our will be done without consequences. We are to act and or live according to His Kingdom’s terms, His instructions in righteousness. We seek first the Kingdom and understand how it functions and we live this lifestyle by The Kingdoms provisions within the Kingdoms boundaries. We live within the Kingdoms teachings and its righteous instructions. Now not only has our King Jesus said all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Him, but also that He is the Word, He is the constitution so to speak. Now we know the Word itself has authority and He Himself as the Word has all authority. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness;” 2 Timothy 3:1 Therefore not only has Jesus all authority in heaven and earth, but His Word has the standard of authority. The Word sets the standard on how to. How to pray at all times in the Spirit (Ephesians 6:18), how to cast out devils (Matthew 12:28) by The Spirit, how to demolish strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-4) with Spiritual weapons, how to enforce Kingdom authority and power (Ephesians 6:10) in the might of His strength and this how to is the way we are to do to because of the authority of The Word/Jesus. If we do it any other way then the terms of the Kingdom will not work. Therefore, when we embrace to obey His standard we will ensure our warfare is effective active and operative, bearing fruit.

Chapter 2 In My Name

“but

the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and shall remind you of all things that I said to you.” John 14:26

The Holy Spirit was sent In Jesus name, just as we are sent in Jesus name. “And signs will follow to those believing these things, they will cast out demons in My name…” Mark 16:17 Recall the seventy rejoiced that demons were subject to them through His name. “And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us through Your Name. Luke 10:17 Now Jesus was sent to us in the Fathers name anointed with The Holy Spirit, the promised Holy Spirit was sent to us in Jesus name after all authority and power was given to Jesus, He had been glorified, we are also sent in Jesus name. “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name; I guarded those whom You gave to Me…” John 17:12 “but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall…” John 14:26 “Then Jesus said to them again, Peace to you. As the Father has sent Me, I also send you. 22. And saying this, He breathed on them, and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit. John 20:21-22

10


Now we know we are sealed with the Spirit of Christ and when we are sent He sends us on His behalf, we are His ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20) of The Kingdom. We are personal representatives of Jesus possessing the sent Spirit of Jesus Christ within (Galatians 4:6). Now we know Jesus went about preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and healing those who had been demon possessed (Matthew 4:23-24; Acts 10:38). Now recall Jesus was sent of the Father (John 8:42) in the Fathers name. Now when did Jesus begin His ministry? After John in the Jordan had baptized Him, where The Holy Spirit came upon Him. Straight forth we know He was led of The Holy Spirit into the wilderness for forty days. Then Jesus went as sent by The Father anointed with The Holy Spirit and power to fulfill His call to ministry. Therefore it was not until He was given The Holy Spirit. Then He went in the power of the anointing (Isaiah 61:1-3), anointed with The Holy Spirit to cast out demons and to heal - the brokenhearted. “And full of the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness 2. forty days…” Luke 4:1-2 “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me; therefore He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to captives, and new sight to the blind; to send away crushed one in deliverance;” Luke 4:18 “And knowing instantly within Himself that power had gone forth out of Him, turning in the crowd, Jesus said, Who touched me?” Mark 5:30 “Jesus, the One from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went through doing good, and 11


healing all those having been oppressed by the Devil, because God was with Him.” Acts 10:38 “But to each one is given the showing forth of the Spirit, to our profit… 9. and to another, faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:7, 9 Now we see Jesus was sent in the Fathers name for the Father had sent Him with The Kingdom of God’s Holy Spirit. Therefore with The Holy Spirit it means being sent in The Fathers name. “But if I cast out devils by The Holy Spirit, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you.” Now the same spiritual truth, we are sent in Jesus name for Jesus sends us with His Kingdoms (Colossians 1:13, Galatians 4:6) Holy Spirit. When we are sent in Jesus name we go in the power of The Spirit of Christ. Therefore because we have The Holy Spirit it means we are sent in Jesus name. The disciples under the Law went in the Spirit of The Father (Luke 9:1) until He was glorified and then they went in The Spirit of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:2, 9; Galatians 4:6).

12


Chapter 3 The Authority of Those Believing

And

having called together His twelve disciples, He gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to heal diseases.” Luke 9:1

Now we saw in the last chapter we go with The Spirit of Christ for our King. For His Kingdoms work and ministry, just as Jesus went for The Father. As Jesus was The Fathers representative anointed with the Spirit of God, we are Jesus representatives anointed with The Spirit of The Kingdom, anointed with the Spirit of Christ. So for Jesus to go about The Kingdom of God’s work, He had to wait until He was given the Holy Spirit, He could not of gone before the appointed time of baptism and sending, then to minister His Kingdom under the Old Testament’s Covenants. He was to do the will of The Father by the power of The Fathers Holy Spirit (Matthew 10:20, Luke 9:1). If God was not with Him (Acts 10:38) by having The Holy Spirit operative and active He could not have went in The Fathers name. Just like Paul, Jesus went about in the power of God in the proof of The Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:4). Now we know the Government of the Kingdom was given to Jesus with all authority in Heaven and earth. However the Father sent the Holy Spirit of His Son (John 14:16-17, Galatians 4:6) but we go in Jesus name to do His Kingdom work because He was glorified in The Father. We are to do the will of our King Jesus by the power of The Kingdom of God’s Holy Spirit - we go in His name or in other words we are going with The Spirit of Jesus Christ. Now lets read these scriptures. “And signs will follow to those believing these things; they will cast out demons in My name, they will speak new languages;”

13


Mark 16:17 Read the scripture again - they will cast out demons in My name. Now the scripture on the top of the next page – But if I [being Jesus] cast out the demons by the Spirit of God The Father by whom do you cast them out? See the correlation, they will cast out demons in My name the scripture bearing witness the they cast out demons is by The Holy Spirit, not by the personalized believer. When we speak in new languages it is the Spirit’s utterance, He using our voice, this is the same principle in the casting out of demons, He using us. Both works of the Spirit are seen in Mark 16:17. Now this same principle is seen in Luke 9:1, power over demons and healing both are the ministry the workings of The Holy Spirit; we are the instruments He works through. For Jesus said but “if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God.” Can you see the “they” and the “I” refer to the instrument of righteousness (Romans 6:13) not personalized in our own standings power and authority, but the power and authority is The Spirit- the name of Jesus working through us the instruments of righteousness. It is not the personalized us who make a demand on the name of Jesus or commands demons to go and then the work is done by the Spirit. It is to be done by the praying in The Spirit by The Spirit (Ephesians 6:18), just like tongues or other languages is done in the Spirit by the Spirit, the us, the they, the I are the instruments. Demons obey the commands of the Holy Spirit “but if I cast out demons by The Holy Spirit, then the kingdom of God has come upon you – they shall cast out demons and speak in new languages.” In my name is saying In My Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Christ. In this we see what it means when we go in His name we go with His Spirit, we have to go anointed with the manifestations of His Name, we have to go in the power of His Spirit to be in His name. Just like Jesus did not enter into ministry until He received The Holy Spirit of God. “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God; then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28 14


In the Covenant of the Law The Spirit was referred to solely as the Spirit of God (Matthew 10:20). However, in The Eternal Blood Covenant He is mostly referred to as the Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:2, 9; Galatians 4:6) and God. Under the Covenant of The Law Jesus went in the Spirit of God. When He cut The Eternal Blood Covenant He was given all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18) therefore the Spirit was referred to as The Spirit of Christ Jesus. Because after He had gone to The Father who sent Him, Jesus would then send The Holy Spirit (John 16:7). He had petitioned The Father for the Comforter and The Father sent The Holy Spirit in the glorified Jesus name (John 14:26, John 15:26, Galatians 4:6) to be called The Spirit of Christ. In all this we see I and the Father are One (John 10:30), even though The Father is greater (John 10:29; 14:28) giving all authority in heaven and earth to Him in which He will hand back to The Father (1 Corinthians 15:24-28). Now Jesus sends us having the government of His shoulders and possessing all power and authority in heaven and earth and we go in the Spirit of Christ Jesus or in other words we go in His Name. Jesus came in The Fathers name, anointed with the Fathers Spirit; we go in Jesus name anointed with The Spirit of Christ Jesus. Recall, the Holy Spirit had not yet been given, as Jesus had not been glorified (John 7:37-39). The Holy Spirit had only been given to the twelve and the seventy and it is written it is the work of The Spirit to cast out and heal. “And having called together His twelve disciples, He gave them

power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases” Luke 9:1 “And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us through Thy Name.” Luke 10:17 “And signs will follow to those believing these things, they will cast out demons in My Name; they will speak new languages; Mark 16:17 15


Now other scriptures confirm the Spirits workings as we read below we see one of the manifestations of The Spirit. The discerning of spirits / demons, this gift is operative in the casting out of demons. Recall we read in Mark 16:17, the casting out of demons and the speaking in languages both these worketh by the one and selfsame Spirit. “But the manifestation of the Spirit it is given to every man to profit withal… 10. To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11. But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.” 1 Corinthians 12:7, 10-11 (KJ) Now as we read in the above scripture, in my name they will cast out demons and speak in new languages, again we see both these manifestations worketh by the one and selfsame Spirit. Therefore when we read “they” shall cast out devils it is by The Holy Spirit, the “they” is the vessel the Holy Spirit works through just like tongues He needs us to speak through, we are the vessel He works through to cast out demons, “surrender your body as an instrument of righteous.” To split hairs – Yes in utterance or Him impressing on our spirit what to cast out, either way it is the ministry of The Kingdoms Holy Spirit. Can you see it is not personally as Kath the Christian or Allan the Pastor? The “they” as in I Kath and I Allan are the instruments He ministers through with His power and authority and His gifts His manifestations at work. Through the ministry of The Holy Spirit both Father and Son operate, the Kingdom of Gods will and work is brought into redeemed human lives through The Holy Spirit – The Father, The Son, and The Spirit are One God. Other scriptures must always prove an interpretation of a scripture. We cannot always take a scripture literally, its most obvious meaning as it reads without the discerning of the intent of that scripture, “they” - “you”. The following scriptures bear witness to the truth of the ministry of The Holy Spirit. The Kingdom of God comes to us through the ministry of the Spirit

16


“… the Kingdom of God has come upon you.”

Matthew 12:28

“… the greatness of His power toward us, the ones believing according to the working of His mighty strength.” Ephesians 1:19-20 “… be made powerful in the Lord and in the might of His strength.” Ephesians 6:10 “for the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful to God in order to pull down strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4 “but you will receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and you will be witnesses of Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 “And my word and my preaching was not in moving words of human wisdom, but in proof of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:4 “for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (KJ) 2 Peter 1:21 “But there are differences of gifts, but the same Spirit… 6. And there are differences of workings, but the same God is working all things in all, 7. But to each one is given the showing forth of the Spirit; to our profit. 8. for through the Spirit is given to one a word of wisdom; and to another; a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 9. and to another, faith by the same Spirit; 10. and to another working of powers; and another, prophecy; and to another, discerning of spirits; and to another, interpretations of languages, 11. But the one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing separately to each as He wills.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 “We then, as workers together with Him…”

2 Corinthians 6:1


Chapter 4 The Will Of The One Sending Us

“Then Jesus answered and said to them, truly, truly, I say to you, The Son is not able to do anything from Himself, except what He may see the Father doing; for whatever that One does, these things also the Son does the same way. 30. Nothing I am able to do from Myself; just as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, for I do not seek My will, but the will of the One sending Me, the Father.” John 5:19, 30

“I am the Vine; you are the branches. He that remains in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit. For apart from Me you are not able to do anything.” John 15:5

Now we know Jesus was a Rabbi and He taught His disciples, not only the twelve but also the other seventy He sent, which included women, and there was others that were not sent, and some of His disciples followed Him no more (Luke 6:17; Luke 24:22; Luke 7:11; Luke 23:27, 49; Mark 15:40-41, John 6:60-67). Now in Jewish understanding when a Rabbi speaks of burden and yoke it means the Rabbis teachings and the walking out of these teaching. Therefore as a disciple of our Rabbi Jesus we are to live by His teachings, His instructions on how to cast out devils, how to enforce power and authority over all the power of the enemy. We do not seek our will, but the will of the One who sends us – Rabbi Ben Joseph Yeshua as His name was known in Hebrew. Now we read above Jesus was not able to do nothing from Himself, even though He was God (Philippians 2:6) and in The Father. Now we read 18


this again below and we also read “My Father taught me.” Therefore we see He obeyed His Father’s teachings on how to cast out demons, He did it the way He was taught, or the way He was instructed in yielding to The Holy Spirit, partnering The Holy Spirit. Therefore this is how we do it, yielded to The Holy Spirit. As Jesus did what His teacher taught Him, we do what our teacher teaches us. We cast out devils the way the authority of The Word instructs us. “but if I cast out demons by the Holy Spirit then the Kingdom of God has come on you.” Mark 16:17 “Then Jesus said to them, When you lift up the Son of man, then you will know that I AM; and from Myself I do nothing; but as My Father taught Me, these things I speak 29. and the One who sent Me is with Me. The Father did not leave Me alone, for I always do the things pleasing to Him.” John 8:28-29 Now we read above “the One who sent Me is with Me.” We read the same below. “But even if I judge, My judgment is true because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent Me. John 8:16 Now recall Jesus saying when He was going He would not leave us orphans (John 14:18). He also said, “In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you.” John 18:20 Now we see this The Father is in Him, He is in The Father, we are in Jesus and Jesus is in us. Now God being the greater Jesus from Himself did nothing, nothing was He able to do from Himself, He did not seek His own will but the will of the One sending Him, He did what His Father taught Him. Now Jesus being the greater than us, nothing can we do from ourselves, (John 15:5) but the will of the One who sends us, we do it how He teaches us, we do it how The Authority of The Word/Jesus instructs us. Therefore we cannot do anything from ourselves even though we are in Christ (John 15:5, 16), but we have to obey His righteous instructions as our Rabbi, we wear His yoke and carry His burden. Therefore we have to 19


cast out demons the way He - The Son on God, The Christ, The Vine and The I Am cast out demons, that is by The Holy Spirit. We cast them not out from ourselves or our own standing as in title, Christian, believer, Pastor, Apostle or Prophetess or so on, the they, you, them and the I are the instrument(s). Therefore the “they” and the “you” and the “them” are not to be taken literally as personal power and authority. Or as some say the “they” the “you” and the “them” is the believer’s authority to stand alone in self. They believe the believer to make a demand on the name Jesus i.e., like the name Tom. This teaching proves that mindset is a false use of authority and power that will bear no fruit for your efforts. “And signs will follow to those believing these things they will cast out demons in My Name; they will speak new languages.” Mark 16:17 “Behold, I have given you the authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and on all the power of the Enemy, and nothing shall hurt you, not at all. Luke 10:19 “And having called together His twelve disciples, He gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases.” Luke 9:1 “Truly I say to you. Whatever you bind on the earth shall occur, having been already bound in Heaven. And whatever you loose on the earth shall be, having been already loosed in Heaven.” Matthew 18:18 Recall, “But if I [Jesus - words in brackets here mine] cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28

20


Chapter 5 The Name Of Jesus

“Therefore, also God highly exalted Him and gave Him a name above every name, 10. that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those of Heaven, and those of earth, and those under the earth;” Philippians 2:9-10

“and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us, the ones believing according to the working of His mighty strength 20. which He worked in Christ in raising Him from the dead-yea, He seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, 21. far above all principality, and authority, and power, and lordship and every name being named, not only in this age, but also in the coming age; 22. and He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, 23. which is His body, the fullness of Him filling all things in all-” Ephesians 1:19-23

Now when we go in the name of Jesus we go with The Kingdom’s Holy Spirit, we are the instruments of righteousness He uses for His Kingdom come His will to be done. The Kingdom of God’s will and work is brought into humanity through The Holy Spirit (Acts 4:28). We also know Jesus has all authority and His Word has the standard of authority. Now we know Jesus is exalted above all principalities, authorities and powers and lordships and also spiritual wickedness in high places. All things are subject to Him including us His subjects so to speak of His Kingdom under His Kingly Rule under His constitution (Bible). Now when Jesus was given a name above every name and was exalted above every name, this speaks of and includes every power with a title,

21


every authority with an office, every incumbent with a role whether natural or spiritual (Ephesians 1:21; Colossians 1:16-19; 1 Corinthians 12:28). It does not imply a name like Tom, Dick or Jane or Jesus. He has become Son of God, having a more excellent name than the angels. “For by which of the angels did He ever say, “You are My son; today I have begotten You.”? And again, “I will be a Father to Him, and He shall be a Son to Me.” 6. And again, when He brought the Firstborn into the world, he said, “And let all the angels of God worship Him.” Hebrews 1:5-6 “4. having become so much better than the angels, He has inherited a name more excellent than they. ” Hebrews 1:4 Now if we look at the name Jesus as a power name like pagans spoke a name over and that name held magical significance when used in a spiritual invoking sense, we will not receive the fullness of the intent of the scriptural meaning of the name above every name and every knee bowing. However if we see the name whereby God has given Him a name revealing His true nature and positional authority and as Son of God we will see the fullness of the power of the name of Jesus or the name above every name inclusive of power and title. We will see God The Son, Son of God, The King of Kings, The Lord of Lords, The Lord, The Christ, The Messiah; we will see the totality of His name above every name. We will see the intention of He who is named Jesus, who He is and what He represents. We will see Him as the name above all names, not a name like Tom, Dick or Jane. He is above Zeus, Dianna and other gods and goddesses. Now we know in Hebrew understanding the name of a person reveals their character and destiny (Matthew 1:23). We also know, “… there is salvation in no other One, for neither is there any other name under heaven having been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Now recall Paul said,

22


“were you baptized into the name of Paul? I give thanks to God that I did not baptize one of you, except Crispus and Gaius, that not anyone should say that you were baptized in my name.” 1 Corinthians 1:13-15 In Jewish understanding disciples were baptized into their Rabbi it was as if ‘to call that one’s name over themselves.’ This declaring they followed and belonged to that Rabbi and were under their authority and teachings on how that Rabbi believed one should live as belonging to the Kingdom God. They were under the Rabbis protection and care, under their name (Acts 4:7, 10-12, 5:41). Even when disciples taught or became Rabbi’s they would teach on “according to my Rabbi Gamaliel” they would teach in the name of their Rabbi representing him and his teachings (Acts 4:17-18; 5:28, 40; 22:3) To make mention even when Jews were sick they went to the Rabbi for healings. Now this is the same principle when we are baptized into the name of Jesus Christ. When it was spoken in Acts 4:12 there is no other name under heaven, this Jewish intent is understood. When we confess with our mouth (Luke 12:8, Romans 10:9-10) we ‘call the name of Jesus’ over us, we are declaring we are Christ’s disciples. We are declaring we are in Christ we are baptized into Christ. We confess we belong to Him, and we are under His Kingdom’s authority, His care, His protection and His instructions of His Word. We are confessing He is our Rabbi and He is our Lord and we live by His teachings and instructions. That’s why we are called ‘Christians.’ Now if we teach we speak our Master Rabbis teachings, and we go in that name (Acts 3:6) - Rabbi Ben Joseph Yeshua, and as we know when going in His name we are equipped with the surpassing greatness of His power, which He worked in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, His Holy Spirit. Now this cultural understanding was understood by the Jewish people, they knew of what it meant to have someone’s name called over them (2 Samuel 12:28, Isaiah 4:1, 2 Chronicles 7:14). They knew what name implied, they knew they had their God’s name called over them identifying then as His peculiar people (2 Chronicles 7:14). 23


Calling on the name of Jesus Christ was in the same sense. They were speaking His name over themselves; they were declaring they followed Him and belonged to Him. “to the church of God existing in Corinth, those having been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called out saints, withal those calling on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both theirs and ours;” 1 Corinthians 1:2 We also know the people of Israel are called by His name, and on whom His name is called (2 Chronicles 7:14) and as is the Jerusalem of Israel (2 Kings 21:4, 2 Chronicles 6:6). They are His peculiar possession, like us subject to His rule and under His authority (Isaiah 63:19, Jeremiah 14:9; 15:16), and in days of old they called Yahweh’s name over themselves (Daniel 9:19). Now as the Father was in Jesus and Jesus was in the Father the name of Jesus is in the Father’s name. I AM, Lord, Judge, God with us Emmanuel and we see within the name The One God, Comforter, Advocate, Helper, Spirit of Christ, Spirit of God – judgment, glory, holiness, justice, voice of The Almighty, voice of The Lord. Now we know Jesus disciples prophesied in His name (Matthew 7:22) cast out demons in His name (Luke 10:17) and performed miracles in His name (Mark 9:39) preached the word of God in His name (Acts 4:31, 1 Corinthians 2:4). We have seen that these works are works of The Holy Spirit not the person acting independently (Acts 4:16, 31), but the person is the instrument of righteousness. Therefore, going in His name or doing works in His name meant going anointed with The Spirit of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:7-8-12, 30) to do whatever His hand and counsel before determined to be done (Acts 4:28). Now whereby God has given Him the name that is above every name and at the name of Jesus every knee will bow has the implication of the same as in His name. It does not imply the usage of a name Jesus. The name points to the understanding of the person, His true nature and positional authority. Who He is, like God The Son, Son of God, King of Kings, Lord of Lord or as we see in a natural sense like Prime Minister,

24


President, High Court Judge, Police wo/man, General or Commander In Chief these titles are of the highest authority. The name whereby every knee shall bow cannot be understood by the usage of His name. The reality is what it represents, not an implication of supernatural energy that flows from the name Jesus. Neither is the name a channel for the release of The Kingdoms miraculous power or for the usage of a power encounter with demons. Consider, when we pray in Jesus name the implication is praying in The Spirit (Ephesians 6:17-18, Ephesians 6:18) whatever you ask in Jesus name is the breath of The Spirit interceding (John 14:13) or impressing on our spirit to ask that is in accordance with His will that The Father may be glorified. When God gave Him a name above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow it is the Sovereignty of who He is. God has exalted Him above every name that is named therefore every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, He is GOD – GOD above all gods.

Chapter 6 Keys of The Kingdom “Truly I say to you. Whatever you bind on the earth shall occur, having been already bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth shall be, having been already loosed in Heaven.” Matthew 18:18

“And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven. And whatever you bind on earth shall occur, having already been bound in Heaven. And whatever you may loose on the earth shall be, having been already loosed in Heaven Matthew 16:19

Now we understand we live within the Kingdom Rule of Christ Jesus under His constitution - His Word. We are to live and abide by His ways of kingdom living, not the ways of kingdom of self’s living. We abide, we obey His instructions on how to warfare, how to cast out demons, we are in the vine we can do nothing from ourselves. Now He gives us the Keys of His Kingdom that speak symbolically of authority, and authority is the basic issue in all forms of spiritual warfare. Now recall Jesus has declared His absolute authority in heaven and earth. No authority is greater than His; He is Son of God, Son of Man, He is The Lord of Heaven and Earth, He is the King whose Kingdom rules we live under. There is no negotiating or voting out His instructions on how He set the instructions to cast out devils and warfare we are to submit to God to operate in His anointed armor, praying in The Spirit of the Kingdom at all times (Ephesians 6:10-18). Now we know the authority He gives us is of, and the use of, and the direct directive of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The authority Jesus gives us is

26


to operate in the Holy Spirit in His authority as God The Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Christ; the petitioning for the use of the power of the Spirit in and through us; and His authority over us as the Spirit of Jesus Christ who leads us in the Kingdom ways of deliverance. He casts out the devils He releases the gift of the discernment of spirits and He releases His other gifts and anointing(s) to be made powerful in the Lord Jesus and the strength of His might by the strength of His right hand. We have within us the power of God Himself, and the authority of Jesus for that power to operate in and through us for His Kingdom’s rule against darkness. Now I am not speaking of authority as in positional, like head of the household as in Father, or Pastor or Elder or Teacher or even Intercessor, these positions yes have authority and can be stood in and exercised on that basis against the enemy, even the lifting of holy hands in warfare speaks and wields authority especially when under the inspiration and power of The Spirit. But I speak on the keys of The Kingdoms authority of The Holy Spirit’s ministry of casting out devils and His direct leading us, His direction by illumination to follow His command, His direct praying in utterance either in tongues or our spoken language for strategic warfare “but if I cast out demons by The Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 12:28) When we realize this key of the Kingdom of the release of the power and authority of the Kingdom that is ministered by and from the direct work of The Holy Spirit we will be correctly walking in the power and authority of Christ for effective operative and active warfare. We will be scriptural in operating in power and authority “but if I cast out demons by The Holy Spirit” - “I give you power and authority over all the power of the enemy.” (Matthew 12:28 & Matthew 10:1) No devil will stay hidden it will be cast out; no warfare strategy will fail; no manifestation of demons in someone throwing chairs or people all over the room will continue, these demons will yield, subdued by The Holy Spirit coming up and out of us as in the same way the utterance of prophecy and tongues come forth. He will speak to that devil and that devil will bow the knee and desist its moves, it will cease its actions.

27


Therefore whatsoever The Holy Spirit will bind will most assuredly occur and whatsoever the Holy Spirit will loose will most assuredly occur. When you allow The Holy Spirit to manifest the work of His ministry through you for the Kingdom, binding and loosing will not return to you void it will accomplish that to which it has been sent. We will be operating in the intention of the scripture “whatsoever you bind on earth shall occur and whatsoever you loose on earth shall occur.”(Matthew 18:18) In Hebraic understanding bind and loose was understood to be whatever is permitted or prohibited according to their interpretation of Scripture, their oral laws and their cultural Jewish traditions. It did not matter if it was not scripturally sound, their positional authority ruled. For example those who were in authority like High Priest, Chief Priests and Pharisees (Matthew 23:1-5) also Rabbis would prohibit the people, synagogue or disciples from say as they did, carrying anything on a Sabbath (John 5:10-16). If someone came to one of these people of authority and asked could they carry a cot to the pool at the Sheep Gate for one of their kinsmen, they had positional authority to either permit/loose someone to break the Sabbath or they would say no it is prohibited/bound to carry anything on a Sabbath according to the Law. When Jesus brought His Fathers true teachings (John 8:28) to earth He was to teach and do the work of the Father (John 5:17, 19-20). He revealed His authority His teaching over their authority by telling the man “rise, take up your cot and walk.” (John 5:8) Rabbi Ben Joseph Yeshua being of greater authority permitted/loosed this man to carry his cot, as we know all authority was given to Him and God has committed all judgment to The Son of God, Son of Man (John 5:22, 27). Now in the latter verse 30 we see He still does not judge from Himself even though all authority and judgment has been given to Him (22, 27) and even though He has life in Himself (26) and as Son He can give life to whomever He wills (21). Now as we know He allowed the Spirit of Judgment and the Authority sent by The Father to be at work in and through Him, the three in One (Mark 12:29, Matthew 28:19) 28


“but if I cast out devils by The Holy Spirit the kingdom of God has come upon you.” Matthew 12:28 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to…” Isaiah 61:1-4 “And the Spirit of Jehovah will rest on Him; … But He shall not judge by the seeing of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears.” Isaiah 11:1-5 He is still doing whatever He sees the Father doing (John 5:19). What He hears He judges (John 5:30, Isaiah 11:2-3), He does not seek His will, but the will of the One sending Him, the will of the One who taught Him even though He knows all these things and is the Word made flesh. He followed the will of the One who gave Him the instructions on how to cast out demons (Matthew 12:28), how healing was to be done by the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38, Luke 9:1), how to pull down strongholds (Matthew 12:29, Ephesians 6:10, 2 Corinthians 10:3-4) how to yield to the anointing within for that anointing to come forth in and through Him (Acts 10:38, Isaiah 11:2-3, Matthew 16:16), He obeyed just as He was taught. “Nothing I am able to do from Myself; just as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, for I do not seek My will, the will of the One sending Me, the Father. John 5:30 Recall man no longer is given the authority as the first Adam; Christ Jesus has reconciled all things unto Himself as the second Adam. The Father has given Him authority and authority to judge as Son of Man. The authority given to us is via the work and ministry of The Spirit of Christ, the Son of Man, and the last Adam through us under His directive and command. “And He also gave authority to Him to execute judgment, for He is the Son of Man.” John 5:27 Again, the authority we now walk in is His authority through His Spirit, not in our own standing. It is the Spirit of Himself that is the power and authority that is given to us. We are under His authority, unless we abide in the Vine and draw from Him, for apart from Him we are not able to do anything.

29


Now as workers together with Him (2 Corinthians 6:1) we are to be made powerful in the Lord, and in the might of His strength (Ephesians 6:10). An instrument of righteousness (Romans 6:13, James 4:7), a vessel to honor the King (2 Timothy 2:21) for the manifestations of The Spirit to operate as He wills for He is given for the profit of the body of Christ; for His Kingdom’s will to be done. Not for the profit of the kingdom of self or the exaltation of self or for the performance of being seen as powerful. We are to walk not after the flesh, but after The Spirit (Romans 8:4) and to pray in The Spirit at all times. Therefore we are to submit to God first (James 4:7) so the manifestation of the Spirit is released to oppose the devil. It is not by title, not by adoption, not by flesh, but by the Spirit of Christ that the weapons of our warfare must operate, operate through God to the pulling down of strongholds and the casting out of demons (2 Corinthians 10:4, Matthew 12:28) God / Christ Jesus has to be with us manifesting in The Spirit of The Kingdom by anointing us for His works as He was with Jesus. “Jesus, the one from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went through doing good, and healing all those having been oppressed by the Devil, because God was with Him.” Acts 10:38 “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28 Consider, if it was positional power and authority we cast out demons by as in Pastor or child of God then why didn’t Jesus being God cast out demons in His own standing as Jesus? Therefore His authority as Jesus was not the way the Kingdom was to reign against demons in and over His subjects. God’s reign was to be experienced by the ministry and work of The Holy Spirit in and through Jesus as it is with us. “…God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went through doing good, and healing all those having been oppressed by the Devil, because God was with Him. Acts 10:38 “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28

Conclusion Things That Differ

“For we are fellow workers of God, a field of God; and you are a building of God.”

1 Corinthians 3:9

Now we know the Bible speaks of different kinds of authority. They differ from exousia “it is lawful” as this one possesses authority like Priest, Rabbi, Ruler, Apostle and Pastor; to authenteo the exercise of authority on one’s own account; to epitage of commandment or verb to command; to huperoche of superiority high rank or station, metaphorically mountain peak - eminent place; to dunastes/dunamis which signifies God, His great authority to rule and reign over us. Now we know that Christ is our King and we are the His servants in His Kingdom. Now to some He made Apostles, some He made Prophets, some He made Teachers and with these positions come positional authority to exercise, as we understand eldership and even parental authority. Now because of the job description so to speak the position requires we do certain things/tasks/services because there are obligations attached to that authority. Now we understand Christ is the head of the Church His body and we are to walk not in the flesh but in The Spirit that the righteous demand of the law might be fulfilled in us (Romans 8:4). Therefore a deliverance ministry must come under the rule of the Kingdom, the Head of the church. It must operate according to His pattern of authority and the authority of His word. It must operate according to His methods of deliverance. Now things that differ within deliverance ministries are these methods or procedures applied for the casting out of demons. When we see ministries that pray prayer strategies and release prayers and renunciation prayers they have been led of The Spirit to operate in these methods. Likewise when deliverance ministers speak out of that positional authority as being a 31


deliverance minister, The Lord, The Spirit of Christ Jesus has delegated to them this authority, it is understood between them. Therefore, it then becomes a personal application of “I give you power and authority to cast out demons” as I give you the ministry of being a “Deliverance Minister.” Therefore, He permits them to speak to devils, to bind them, loose them, box them, judge them and cast them out. The Spirit of Himself and the angels of Heaven back up this delegated authority in the spirit realm. However, the minister is still to intertwine with The Holy Spirit, knowing His Lordship, discerning His movements and the release of His gifts enhancing the session for victory. In this sense the method of ministry is not done in purity of The Holy Spirit. But, The Spirit has instrumented this method for this deliverance ministry. However, they are not abiding by the way the Kingdom has commanded that deliverance is to be operative in purity of The Holy Ghost as Jesus went about His deliverance ministry. Because, recall what Jesus said “if I cast out devils by The Holy Spirit, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you.” Now when we refuse to establish our own authority or our own positional authority by our own hand in deliverance we will walk in true spiritual power and authority. We will hit the bulls-eye every time and be TRUIUPHANT. Therefore, when we come under the direct directive of The Holy Spirit, the authority of His ministry, the method of His choosing, thus submitting to the authority of the Words instructions for casting out demons, our warfare will most assuredly be operative active and effective bearing fruit, one hundred fold according to His will. “Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery having been kept unvoiced during eternal times, but now has been made plain, and by prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God, make known for obedience of faith to all the nations; the only wise God through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever. Amen. Romans 16:25-27

New Testament Scriptures “Behold! The virgin will conceive in her womb, and will bear a son; and they will call His name Emmanuel!”, which translated is, God with us.” Matthew 1:23 “And Jesus went around al Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom; and healing every disease and every one of the illnesses among the people. 24. And the report of Him went out into al Syria. And they brought to Him all the ones having illness, suffering various diseases and torments; also those having been demon-possessed; and lunatics, and paralytics; and He healed them.” Matthew 4:23-24 “Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power? Matthew 7:22 “For you are not the ones speaking, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Matthew 10:22 “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28 “Or how is anyone able to enter the house of the strong one and plunder his goods, if he does not first tie up the strong one; and then he will plunder his house?

This is that sown by the roadside.” Matthew 13:19 “And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Matthew 16:16 “Then Jesus spoke to the crowd and to His disciples, 2. saying, the scribes and the Pharisees sat down on Moses seat. 3. Then all things, whatever they tell you to keep, keep and do. But do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. 4. For they bind heavy and hard to bear burdens,

and lay them on the shoulders of men; but they do not desire to move them with their finger. 5. And they do all their works to be seen by men. And they make their phylacteries broad, and enlarge the borders of their robes.” Matthew 23:1-5 “Going, then, disciple all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit;” Matthew 28:19

“But Jesus said, Do not forbid him. For there is no one who shall do a work of power in My name, yet be able to speak evil of Me quickly.” Mark 9:39 “And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is; “hear, Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord,” Mark 12:29 “And also women were watching from a distance, among whom also was Mary Magdalene; also Mary the mother of James the less, and of Joses, and Salome, 41. who also followed Him and ministered to Him when He was in Galilee; and many other women who came up to Jerusalem with Him.” Mark 15:40-41 “And signs will follow to those believing these things; the will cast out demons in My name; they will speak new languages” Mark 16:17

“And coming down with them, he stood on a level place. And a crowd of His disciples, and a great multitude of the people from al Judea and Jerusalem, and from the coast country of Tyre and Sidon, were there. These came to hear Him, and to be healed from their diseases” Luke 6:17 “And it happened on the next day, He went into a city being called Nain. And many of His disciples went with Him, also a great crowd.” Luke 7:11 “And having called together His twelve disciples, He gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to heal diseases.” Luke 9:1 “And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject us through Your Name.” Luke 10:17 36


“But I say to you, Everyone who may confess Me before men, the Son of man will also confess him before the angels of God,” Luke 12:8 “And a great multitude of people were following Him, and of women who also were bewailing and lamenting Him. 49.

“Jesus said to him, rise up, Take up your cot and walk!

John 5:8

“Therefore, the Jews said to the one having been healed, I is a Sabbath. It is not lawful for you to lift up the cot. 11. He answered them, The One making me well, that One said to me, Lift up your cot and walk. 12. Then they asked him, Who is the man who told you, Lift up you cot and walk? 13. But he did not know the One who cured him, for a crowd being in that place, Jesus had withdrawn. 14. After these things Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, you have become well; sin no more, that a worse thing not happen to you. 15. The man went away and told the Jews that Jesus is the One making him well. 16. And because of this, the Jews persecuted Jesus, and lusted to kill Him, because He did these thing on a Sabbath.” John 5:10-16 “But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now, and I work.” John 5:17 “Then Jesus answered and said to them, truly, truly, I say to you, the Son is no table to do anything form Himself, except what He may see the Father doing; for whatever that One does, these things also the Son does the same way. 20. For the Father loves the Son, and shows to Him all things which He does. And he will show Him greater works than these in order that you may marvel.” John 5:19-20 “For even as the Father raises the dead, and gives life, so also the Son gives life to whomever He wills.” John 5:21 37


“For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son. John 5:22 “For even as the Father has life in Himself, so He gave also to the Son to have life in Himself. 27. And He also gave authority to Him to execute judgment, for He is the Son of man.” John 5:26- 27 “Nothing I am able to do from My self; just as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, for I do not seek My will, but the will of the One sending Me, the Father.” John 5:30 “Then hearing, many of His disciples said, This word is hard; who is able 6to hear it? 61. But knowing within Himself that His disciples were murmuring about this, Jesus said to them, Does this offend you? 62. Then what if you see the Son of man going up where He was at first? 63. It is the Spirit that makes alive. The flesh does not profit-nothing! The words which I speak to you are spirit and are life. 64. But there are some of you who are not believing. For Jesus knew from the beginning who the not believing ones were, and who was the one were, and who was the one betraying Him. 65. And He said, For this reason I have told you that no one is able to come to Me except it is given to him from My Father. 66. From this time many of His disciples went away into the things behind, and no longer walked with Him. 67. Therefore, Jesus said to the Twelve, Do you also wish to go? John 6:60-67 “And in the last day of the great feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38. The one believing into Me, as the Scripture said, “Out of his belly will flow rivers of living water.” 39. But He said this concerning the Spirit, whom the ones believing into Him were about to receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:37-39 “Then Jesus said to them, When you lift up the Son of man, then you will know that I AM; and from Myself I do nothing; but as My Father taught Me, these things I speak.” John 8:28 “Then Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I went forth and have come from God. For I have not come from My self, but that One sent Me.” John 8:42

“My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all, and no one is able to pluck out of My Father’s hand.” John 10:29 “I and the Father are one!”

John 10:30

“Jesus answered them, is it not written in your Law, “I said, you are gods”? 25. If He called those gods with whom the word of God was-and the Scripture cannot be broken” John 10:34-35 “And whatever you may ask in My Name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13 “And I will petition the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, that He may remain with you forever. 17. the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He abides with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:16-17 “but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and shall remind you of all things that I said to you.” John 14:26 “You heard that I said to you, I am going away and I am coming again to you. If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced that I said, I am going to the Father; for My Father is greater than I.” John 14:28 “I am the Vine; you are the branches. He that remains in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit. For apart from Me you are not able to do anything. 6. Unless one remains in Me, he is cast out as the branch, and is dried up; and they gather and throw them into a fire, and they are burned.” John 15:5-6 “You have not chosen Me, but I chose you out, and planted you, that you should go and should bear fruit, and your fruit remain; that whatever you should as the Father in My name, He may give you.” John 15:16 “And when the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, that One will witness concerning Me. John 15:26

“Then His disciples said to one another, What is this which He says to us. A little while and you do not see me; and again, A little and you will see Me? And, Because I go away to the Father? John 16:16

“But Peter said, There is no silver and gold to me, but what I have, this I give to you; in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk!” Acts 3:6 “And standing them in the midst, they were inquiring, By what sort of power, or by what sort of name, did you do this? 8. Then filled of the Holy Spirit, Peter said to them, Rulers of the people, and elders of Israel: 9. if we are being examined today upon a good work for an infirm man, regarding by what this one has been healed, 10. let it be known to you all and to all the people of Israel that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised up from the dead – in this name one stands near before you whole! 11. This one is the Stone counted worthless by you the builders, who has become placed into the Head of the corner, 12. and there is salvation in no other One, for neither is there any other name under Heaven having been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:7-12 “saying, What may we do to these men? For that a notable miracle has indeed occurred through them is plain t all those living in Jerusalem; and we are not able to deny it. 17. But that it may not spread abroad to the people, let us threaten them with a threat, that they no longer speak on this name to any men. 18. And calling them, they ordered them not to speak at all, nor to teach on the name of Jesus.” Acts 4:16-18 “to do whatever Your hand and Your counsel before-determined to be done. Acts 4:28 “in the extending of Your hand for healing and miracles and wonders to happen through the name of Your Holy child Jesus.

31. And they having prayed, the place in which they were gathered was shaken and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:30-31 “saying, Did we not command you by a command that you not teach in this name? And, behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and intend to bring on us the blood of this man.” Acts 5:28 “And they obeyed him.

For he subjected all things under his feet; but when he says that all things have been subjected, it is plain that it excepts Him who has subjected all things to Him. 28. But when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected t the One who has subjected all things to Him, that God may be all things in all.” 1 Corinthians 15:24-28

Put on all the armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil; 12. because we are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the rulers of this world, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies. 13. Because of this, take up all of the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having worked out all things, to stand. 14. Then stand firm, having girded your loins about with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15. and having shod the feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16. above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the darts of the evil one, the things having been made fiery.

Power and Authority to Cast out Devils The Kingdom of Darkness is not moved by fleshly warfare or unscriptural warfare, it produces no fruit and it is inoperative and ineffective without true power and authority. As citizens we need to understand the Word of The Kingdom concerning “Power and authority” and what it means to “go in My Name.” This book will scripturally prove the teaching of going in His Name and having all Power and Authority over all powers of darkness. When we scripturally understand “those believing will cast out demons …” and “He gave them power and authority over all demons …” and “I give unto you power …” we will be effective and powerful against any work or power of darkness. This book will train your hands to war and teach you Kingdom power and authority so that you are forged into a Holy Ghost weapon of warfare.
