Exercising Authority over Satan at Work and Elsewhere, Part 9
Many times situations happen in our lives which we do not know how or why they take place. The main source of conflict is Satan. He and those evil angels under his command can work through various situations. These evil entities also put ideas into people’s heads, which people think are their own ideas, to bring about Satan’s desires. It is also for possible for people things to have demonic spirits in them. Jesus has given those, who are in Christ, authority over all the power of the enemy.
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases (Luke 9:1).
Elsewhere - The Weather - Samuel
Samuel was driving in Missouri to Jefferson City. He happened to see a funnel cloud on its side and thought. “That could do some damage if it touched down.” Samuel said, “Satan I bind you in the name of Jesus and cloud I command you to break up in the name of Jesus.” A shaft of light started in the bottom of the cloud and went to the top splitting the cloud in two; then it dissipated.
The disciples came back to Jesus after ministering in the country side and said, “Even the devils are subject to us.” Jesus said, “Don’t rejoice that the devils are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in the Book of Life.” Reader, is your name written in the Book of Life? If you are not sure that your name is already recorded in the Book of Life, or if you know your name is not in the Book of Life, then right now you can repent of your sins and invite Jesus into your life. A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.”
