Overcoming Demonic Influences on Our Lives
Demonic influence is designed to oppose truth, justice, holiness and purity.
It is designed to cause manipulation, intimidation, oppression, confusion, disunity, death and will try to prevent people from walking in their purpose and full potential.
It seeks to taint the character and reputation of those God has anointed to walk uprightly to cause doubt and distrust amongst those impacting lives and making a positive influence.
In 1 Kings 21:1-29 Jezebel operated from the authority of her husband Ahab, and killed Naboth for a vineyard that never belonged to her or Ahab.
Jezebel plotted against Naboth with the use of Ahab’s authority by setting up men to kill Naboth for something she had no business doing.
Demonic influences will try to operate and dominate from the place of authority. They will hide behind the Church and voices that portrays to be authentic to carry out its evil agenda and motive.
If you are not careful you will fall prey or become sensitized to the evil being done while it seeks to dominate.
Demonic influence is counterfeit to the prophetic and will try to challenge or go against those in leadership for the sole purpose of gaining power and false authority.
If you are not waking in the will and authority of God it will make you out of liar and false.
Hence the reason men and women of God especially experience oppression and opposition.
Jesus Christ has made it possible for a people who want to serve and live for Him to rein and have dominion over evil.
It is at the name of Jesus Christ that every knee will bow. The demonic will not bow to any other power except the power of Almighty God and the Holy Spirit.
To overthrow and destroy demonic influence we must be men and women spiritually grounded in The LORD, obedient and led by God only.
In the Book of Acts, the itinerant Jewish exorcist tried to go against the demonic but because they were none of The LORD’s the demons never responded or obeyed them.
There is no doubt when operating in the power of Almighty God, demons MUST respond and obey you.
Jesus Christ has set a permanent spiritual law when He died and rose which can never be revoked or annulled.
Yes, it is at the name of Jesus Christ that demons must flee. Demonic influence will always appear innocent until the real motive and agenda is found out and exposed.
It will challenge and oppose those who are of a pure heart and are making positive changes in the world.
However only men and women who are spiritually sensitive and operating in great discernment will be able to recognize the evil force at work in the lives of a people, region or nation.
The Anointing on My Life!
The anointing on my life is not for a circus, to fulfill a personal agenda or the things of darkness.
My anointing carries more weight than any worldly monetary exchange. The anointing the Lord has placed on my life is to fulfill my assignment and bring forth His Kingdom on earth.
I am and will continue to be about my Father’s business.
I have no time for foolishness and things that does not concern me.
I will not be distracted. I will not be manipulated. I will not be intimated and I will definitely not be afraid.
I will never devalue the anointing The LORD has placed on my life by allowing people to make a name for themselves or piggy back off of the anointing.
That is how much I honor God and respect the calling. This is my stance and I make no apology.
