THEY HAVE TO ANSWER THEIR NAME

Sunday, January 9th.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues (Mark 16:17).

Once, I asked a devil to come out of a certain fellow and the devil said, “I’m not going” and turned violent. The ushers were trying to hold the man back, but I beckoned on them to leave him. As he charged at me angrily, I remained calm and said, “You’re gone!” Suddenly, the man became very calm
and fell down as the devil left him.

One of the officials who was with me later said to me, “Pastor, I don’t understand exactly what happened. You asked the devil to go, but he didn’t go. Then you said, ‘You’re gone’ and then he went out.” So, I said, “Well, every word of God is a name; and what He says is what becomes.”

We find a very inspiring, similar scenario with Jesus in Mark 7:25-30. A Syrophenician woman had
come to Jesus and besought Him to cast the devil out
of her daughter. Jesus said to her, “…go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter” (Mark 7:29). That devil had to answer the name that Jesus just called him— “…is gone out.”

The Bible says the woman got home and found the devil was gone from her daughter. Sometimes,
you need to know how to address demons when you
cast them out. There’re times you’re led of the Spirit
to say to that devil, “Come out and return no more.”

Even in praying against their activities in the nations, it’s important to say the right things: cut off
their influence on your nation and tell them, “You’re
gone from this nation! Your influence has been broken; your dominion has been stopped!” Hallelujah!

Someone said what we see around the world now (referring to the activities of devils) are mere kicks of
a dying horse. But we’re full of power and have the
dominion over them. They’re frustrated, and paralyzed; their works have been brought to nothing. We’re triumphant; we’re victorious; we’re reigning through Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit over Satan and his cohorts of darkness. Hallelujah!

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for the authority granted us in Christ with which we exercise dominion over Satan and his demons. Their influence is cut off from the nations! We put an end to their rampage. The Church is triumphant, reigning through Christ in the earth by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY: ||Mark 7:25-30 – For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs. 29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. 30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed. ||

|| Luke 10:19 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. ||
