ORDER THAT DEVIL OUT! (You’ve Got God-Given Authority Over Devils)

? Pastor Chris

Luke 8:28-29 “…“What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me!” For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man….”

When you read this account of the demonpossessed man at Gadara in full detail, you begin to wonder, “Why didn’t the devils come out immediately, rather than the man running to Jesus?” Let me explain: First, you need to understand that every human being has to run his own life; you can’t cast the devil out of someone who doesn’t want the devil to go, except the person places himself under your influence. This mad man at Gadara was possessed by demons for a long time. He was so maniacal that he cut himself with sharp stones, night and day, and anytime he was bound with chains and fetters, he broke them (Luke 8:27-33).

Now, something happened before he ran towards Jesus; when Jesus was still a distance away, the devil in him cried out with a loud voice; that’s what we read in our opening verse; this happened when the Lord first commanded the devil to come out of the man. So, even though the devil didn’t leave the man, he couldn’t stop him from running to Jesus. Until the man in question placed himself under the Master’s influence by running towards Him, he couldn’t be helped. It’s the same way today.

You’ve got authority over all demons and the cohorts of darkness in the Name of Jesus. If there’s anything you’re uncomfortable with, and you can perceive that a demon is responsible, order him out. You don’t have to scream and shout to do it; there’s no distance in the realm of the spirit.

Command him to stop his operations and manoeuvres; it doesn’t matter where he is in this world, he’ll hear you. However, remember, when it has to do with casting him out of a person, it works best when that one places himself under your influence.

? Pray
Thank you, Father, for the ability to cast out devils in the Name of Jesus; I will exercise that dominion today and frustrate the influence and manipulations of Satan in everything that concerns me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
