I heard, “The devil knows who you are.”
“What, LORD? Should we be afraid?”
“Oh no, My Child. It is because of Christ in you, the Hope of Glory! You and I are ONE. When he sees you, he sees Me.
NOTHING shall by any means harm you! Go to the enemy’s camp and take back what he has stolen from you!
He’s under your feet! Take your Authority over him, pursue, for surely, without fail you shall recover all!”
Sisters and brothers. If you are born again and have a relationship with Abba Father through Jesus Christ, do you realize the devil knows who you are?
He knows you like he knows Jesus and the apostle Paul. This is not a bad thing but a GOOD thing.
As spoken in Acts 19, the demon possessed man says to the Jewish exorcists, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”
The demons do not respond to anything but the name of Jesus spoken by born again Spirit filled Believers.
The Jewish exorcists had no relationship with the Father through Jesus and did not believe in Jesus as the Messiah, but only spoke the name of Jesus like a spell or charm.
So what did the devil in the man do to them? He leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
But have no fear, Warrior of God. The devil knows you. The only weapon he has against you is fear. God has NOT given you a spirit of fear, but of Power, Love and a Sound Mind.
Jesus cast out the devil with One Finger, the Finger of God. You also can cast out the devil by the finger of God, for The Holy Spirit dwells in you and the kingdom of God has come upon you.
You now have the right to cast out demons in the name of Jesus and the authority over the devil and his works, Child of God!
No demonic spell, no curse, no generational curse, no profanity, no binding or charging by an oath has any power over you! NOTHING can stand against you!
If God is for you what can stand against you? “NOTHING and NO ONE,” says The LORD of Hosts!
Be not afraid, only believe! Jesus promised that the enemy CANNOT hurt you!
For Jesus said in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy, and NOTHING shall by any means hurt you!”
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,”says The LORD of Hosts!
“My Beloved Warrior. The enemy has deceived the world into thinking he has all power and dominion.
Movies, television, books, mediums, sorcerers, warlocks and witches, and all the principalities and powers and rulers of darkness try to convince you that you are helpless against them and at their mercy.
Oh Dear One of Mine. This is the opposite of the Truth!
The devil is a liar. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
You are of God, Little Children, and have overcome them: because GREATER is He that is in you, than he that is in the world!
Be fully persuaded of this, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus your LORD!
All Authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Do you hear this, My Child? I shall do extraordinary miracles through your hands as you look to Me.
Diseases and evil spirits shall leave because they know you. They see Christ in you and flee!
They HEED My Word in your mouth. The Name of Jesus Christ shall be glorified through you.
It is the Time of the Last Days where many shall be deceived, even the elect. They shall believe that evil has prevailed, and that there is no hope in God.
But you shall RISE UP in faith and in the Power of My Might, My Warrior! You have died to self, and it is now Christ living through you.
By Grace you were saved and by Grace, the devil will flee!
It will be your God doing battle! For you have the Victory in Christ!
No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the Servants of The LORD, and your Righteousness is of Me,” saith The LORD!
“Pursue the enemy, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all!”
Enemy’s Camp by Lindell Cooley:
Acts 19:11 God did extraordinary miracles through the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and the diseases and evil spirits left them.…T hen some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of The LORD Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so.
15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”
16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of The LORD Jesus was magnified.
The scene is brought vividly before us. The seven exorcists, relying partly, we may believe, in the mystical virtue of their number, stand face to face with a demoniac, frenzied and strong like the Gadarene of Matthew 8:28; Mark 5:3-4. (Ellicott’s)
It was common, especially among the Jews, for persons to profess or to try to cast out evil spirits. If we resist the devil by faith in Christ, he will flee from us; but if we think to resist him by the using of Christ’s name, or His works, as a spell or charm, Satan will prevail against us. (Matthew Henry Commentary)
The possessed man, identifying himself, as the Gadarene did, with the demon, stood in awe of the Name of Jesus, when uttered by a man like Paul; but who were these seven pretenders, that they should usurp authority over him? These exorcists had no personal union with Jesus. To them He was only ‘Jesus whom Paul preached.’ These would-be exorcists but irritated the demons by their vain attempts at ejecting them. That Name must be spoken by believing men if it is to put forth its full power. These exorcists had no faith. All that they knew of Jesus was that He was the one ‘whom Paul preached.’ Even the name of Jesus is spoiled and is powerless on the lips of one who repeats it, parrot-like, because he has seen its power when it came flame-like from the fiery lips of some man of earnest convictions. (MacClaren Commentary)
“And the evil spirit answered and said,…. The Alexandrian copy, the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Ethiopic versions, add, “to them”; to the seven sons of Sceva: “Jesus I know; to be the Son of God and Messiah, and own that He has power of dispossessing spirits, of which there were many instances in the days of His flesh:and Paul I know; and own to be a servant of the most high God, by whom miracles of this kind have been wrought: but who are you? You are not the disciples of Jesus, nor the servants of God, but the children of the devil, and have no power over us, but on the other hand are subject to us.” (Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible)
“And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” Luke 11:19-20
“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
“No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of The LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith The LORD.” Isaiah 54:17
“So David inquired of The LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” 1 Samuel 30:8
“But He gives us more grace. This is why it says: “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4: 6-7
“He subdues peoples under us and nations UNDER OUR FEET.” Psalm 47:3
“What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You care for him? You made him a little lower than the angels; You crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything UNDER HIS FEET.” Psalm 8:4-6
