Opening Prayer: Father, arise for me and scatter all my enemies
Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
We have to deal with the Devil because He was the trouble maker. Everything was good until he shows up.
1 John 3:8, the son of God was manifested to destroy the works of the Devil.
We are the one to resist the Devil.
God will not ask you to do what He knows that you cannot do. He knows we have the ability to forgive. Therefore, we have to forgive. Phil 4:13, we can do all things through Christ including resisting the Devil. Mark 16:17, we are to cast out the Devil.
Exo. 20:3, Devil must be cast out.
Devil should not to be worshipped because we are to serve only one God.
The Devil is not to be glorified. Acts 8:9-24
The Devil is not to be tolerated, Matthew 15:21-28
The Devil is not to be accommodated, Mark 5:11-13
The Devil is not to be served, Matthew 4:8-10
The Devil is not to be loved. Mark 12:30-31
The Devil is not to be advertised but Jesus, Acts 1:8
2 Cor. 6:14-16, you are not to be associated with the Devil.
Number 23:19, God will never lie. If you resist the Devil, he will flee. If you do not submit to God, Devil will not flee from you.
We overcame the Devil by the blood of the Lamp. 1 John 3:8, How can you resist your master? If you are a sinner, you are of the Devil. Acts 19:11-17, God performed special miracles from the hand of Paul because he belonged to God. Others could not...... The demons got up and gave them serious beating of their lives.
You cannot be one leg in, one leg out and ask demons to leave. Demons will rather deal with you instead. The moment the Devil knows that you have truly submitted unto God, He will flee from you. 1 Peter 5:8-9, we are to resist the Devil steadfastly. We are to resist the Devil in the name of Jesus. Zac. 4:6 I John 4:4, Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the demon. 1. Genesis 14:1-16, when news came to Abraham that the enemies has captured Lot, he got up and fought.
Prayer Point 1: Father, in the Mighty name of Jesus, no member of my family will go to hell. 2. 2 Kings 4:1-7, I refuse to allow the Devil to have control of over my life.I Samuel 25:1-22.
Prayer Point 2: Father, in the Mighty name of Jesus, I decree, Satan, take your hand off my children.
3. It is time to tell the Devil you can’t have my dreams. Genesis 39. Joseph was put in-charge. Portiphar’s wife came to rob him of his dream, he ran.
Prayer Point 3: Father, in the Mighty name of Jesus, Satan will not destroy my dream. I will become what you want me to become.
4. You cannot steal my blessing. Genesis 22:1-18. Abraham was put to test to sacrifice his son unto God. The Devil blindfolds many Christians so that they will not obey God in totality. Prayer Point 4: Father, from now on, the Devil will no longer steal my blessings. You can no longer steal my breakthrough. Mark 10:46-52.
Prayer Point 5: Father, this very night, my breakthrough must come.
6. You must tell the devil, you cannot have my crown. Jesus is the King of kings. He’s plan for our lives is royalty. 1 Samuel 17. The Devil realized David has been anointed king, therefore, planned to take his crown. Revelation 3:11, .........., let no man take my crown.
Prayer Point 6: Father, in the Mighty name of Jesus, NOBODY will take my CROWN. I will serve God till the end.
