The only time Satan is bound is in the thousand year millennium, and the Lord is going to do that [Rev ]. Rebuking The Devil. When an evil spirit, disease, or evil person is rebuked in the Name of Christ Jesus, it is as if the rebuke comes from the Lord Himself.

Therefore, when Satan or a demonic spirit is rebuked in the Name of Christ Jesus, you are essentially throwing the whole Word of God against them. Zumpano instructed a co-worker to keep rebuking the demon until it was so tormented that it would just leave. Believers are never instructed to rebuke the devil or his demons. The N.

As a matter of fact, this is a mark of false prophets II Pet ; Jude 8,9. Why do people rebuke the Devil then? II Pet and Jude 10 say they do so because they do not understand what they are doing. II Pet suggests that they do so because of arrogance. Pleading The Blood. Satan hates nothing more than to be reminded of the blood of Jesus.
The cross is an embarrassment to him. Every soul saved by the blood of Jesus is a further embarrassment to him. Satan cannot stand his ground against the blood of Jesus…In one of the instances I had bound the demons before they had made any noise and was gathering a small team to minister to the woman. One of the team members somewhat routinely claimed the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. This phrase or idea is found nowhere in the N.
Christ's blood delivers us from sin. There are several biblical references which point to the importance of Jesus' name. Mark quotes Jesus as saying that we cast out demons in Jesus' name Mk. Paul says that God gave Jesus the name which is above every name Phil. It is an awesome weapon, but caution is needed…The name of Jesus is a powerful weapon of spiritual warfare and it wields tremendous authority, but only if we use it according to His will.
By personal experience which God has allowed, I know that the power of evil spirits is real and can have direct influence in the life of a Christian. I could cite a growing number of personal experiences to verify this, but I will choose only the most dramatic. Once a month my Sunday School class [Congregational Church], the Fellowship, comes to our house for a night of intercession. One of those nights two people who have the gift of discernment of spirits sensed something wrong in the house, especially in our bedroom.
So they went upstairs and prayed against the evil they felt was there. Not long afterward, in the middle of one night when I was away, my wife, Doris, woke up with a terrible fear. Her heart was pounding. She opened her eyes to see a luminous green outline of some being in the corner of the room. She could see a pair of eyes, also luminous green. She recognized at once that it was a demon and rebuked it in the name of Jesus, commanding it to leave the house.
It moved a few feet to the right, then back again, then disappeared. Doris went back to bed and slept soundly the rest of the night in complete peace. The next episode occurred after two members of my Sunday School class, who have a powerful ministry of healing and deliverance, were talking to Doris.
She mentioned the green spirit. They immediately suggested that they go to our house and check it out. Because my wife and I were both at work, they got the house key from her and went to our home. They got out of their car and opened the gate to a small courtyard in front of the house, but they could not go any farther. Some powerful force was resisting them. So instead of going to the front door, they entered the garage.
They reported later that on a scale of 1—10 the evil power in the garage was about 9. There was such a tremendous energy that they could actually smell the evil. They had smelled something similar before, so it was not a new experience. They found the smelly demon and cast it out. As a believer, you have a right to make commands in the name of Jesus.
When Paul cast a demon out of the slave girl in the name of Jesus , it was done in accordance with the authority and command of Jesus. Receiving a Word Rhema. P entecostal theologians have made the helpful suggestion of distinguishing the logos word of God from the rhema word of God The rhema is regarded as a more immediate word from God which we do not find in the 66 books of the Bible. Although it will never contradict the written word of God, it is something we seek directly from the Father.
For example, we want to buy a home and we pray, 'God, is this the one? What are commonly though questionably referred to as 'words of knowledge' also fall into the rhema category. Peter, Engaging the Enemy, pg. The use of the written word of God, the scriptures, is a powerful weapon of warfare as we see in the temptation of Jesus.
Commentary for Revelation 17–22
As a response to all three attacks of the devil, Jesus quoted the Old Testament scriptures and the devil could not resist…But there is also a spoken word of God, a rhema, which I will explain in more detail later one. At this point I simply want to indicate that hearing a fresh, spoken word of God is an important part of using the sword of the Spirit. How do we know if a rhema word is valid? How do we know that what we are hearing is not just our own imagination or, worse, something generated by the world, the flesh, or the devil?
Spiritual gifts, such as the gift of prophecy or the gift of discernment of spirits come into the picture at this point. They are extremely helpful. So are experience and Christian maturity and holiness and personal intimacy with God. These go a long way in providing assurance to an individual such as the woman who had the word about he intestinal disease.
Then in , John Wimber received a rhema word from God that the root cause of my headaches had been a demon and that I was to drive it out myself rather than ask someone else to do it for me.

Inherited Curses. These fallen angels can control a human person only as long as that person lives. When he dies, the demonic powers continue to live. Thus demonization becomes a generational problem.
At that point, God shows lovingkindness, not cursing. There are [three] reasons why this is not accurate:. The Bible does not recognize occult sin as a special category that has not been dealt with at the cross. Ezek says that we will each be dealt with according to our own sin. Thus, the mode of transmission of the sins is not because the children are under a curse from sin committed by the parent.
Instead, the sin is conveyed through the child learning the sin patterns from his parents and choosing generation after generation to persist in them. A mystical or curse transmission is not taught or implied from the text! Ezekiel says that God curses each Israelite individual for his own sins and not specifically because of something that their fathers have done Thomas Ice, Biblical Perspectives , Vol. Raising the Dead. I too now believe that dead people are literally being raised in the world today.
As soon as I say that, some ask if I believe if it is normative? I doubt if it would be normative in any local situation but it probably is normative in terms of the universal Body of Christ. Even though it is an extremely uncommon event I would not be surprised if it were happening several times a year. MacArthur, Jr. Now, with the supposed large number of people being raised from the dead, you would imagine that somebody could manage to come up with one who could give testimony to the validity.
But not one modern occurrence of raising the dead can be verified. You say, "What about Oral Roberts' claim the he has raised many people? Later he recalled only one incident more than 20 years before when he had supposedly raised a dead child in front of 10, witnesses. New Apostolic Age. I believe that the government of the church is finally coming into place and that is what the Scripture teaches in Eph.
And so this is the new era we are going into and I don't know if it is coincidental or what, but its just as we are moving into the new millennium. Such dominion is exercised through binding demons, pleading the blood, and engaging in spiritual territorial strategy. This theology is the heart of the Spiritual Warfare Movement.
Focus on God not the demonic
It should be because they are made up of the same individuals and groups. Do these new apostles claim to have seen and been commissioned by the risen Lord? They may claim it, but they do so in a dangerous and fallible manner that proves they are not apostles cp. Deu The End Justifies the Means. How does a movement digress down the wrong path? It venerates experience over the Bible, it reinterprets the Scriptures, and it embraces an ends-justifies-the-means philosophy. What else possibly could justify the means? If the method I am using accomplishes the goal I am aiming at, it is for that reason a good method.
If, on the other hand, my method is not accomplishing the goal, how can I be justified in continuing to use it? The problem is the movement is already reinterpreting doctrine and taking experience over truth. Therefore, their ends are justified by their unbiblical means. Biblical correctness is the only framework by which we must evaluate all ministry methods. Any end-justifies-the-means philosophy of ministry inevitably will compromise doctrine, despite any proviso to the contrary. It means to cause him to have less ability, to decrease the power of, to prevent, his success.
The phrase is used mostly in charismatic circles dealing with spiritual warfare where Christians, in prayer, ask the Lord to bind Satan in order to accomplish a spiritual good. Unfortunately, some Christians mistakenly pray to Satan when they are undertaking spiritual battle. Sometimes they will address the evil one in their prayers and say something like "I bind you Satan in the name of Jesus. We should address our prayers to God and ask him, in the name of Jesus, to bind the devil.
Our prayers should always be addressed to God and God alone. Would there ever be a time when it is appropriate to address the devil directly? Yes, if he were to manifest in person. Then it is not a prayer to him but a direct address and even if that were to occur, the proper response is found in Scripture. Consider where Michael the Archangel had an encounter with the devil. Notice that Michael said, "The Lord rebuke you! Granted, we have authority from God as believers John But we must always trust in the Lord and seek him above all. Taking up the cross daily, praying always, watching night and day and never laying aside our armor to indulge ourselves, sends many sorrowful away from Christ.
God can overcome His enemies without help from anyone, but His saints cannot so much as defend the smallest outpost without His strong arm. The strength of an earthly general lies in his troops — he flies upon their wings. If their feathers get clipped or their necks broken, he is helpless.
But in the army of saints, the strength of the whole host lies in the Lord of hosts. One of God's names is "the Strength of Israel" 1 Samuel He was the strength of David's heart. With Him, this shepherd boy could defy the giant who defied a whole army; without God's strength, David trembled at a word or two that dropped from the Philistine's mouth. He wrote, "Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight" Psalm The Lord is likewise your strength in your war against sin and Satan. Some wonder whether a sin is ever committed without Satan having a part.
But if the question were whether any holy action is ever performed without involving the special assistance of God, that is settled: "Without me ye can do nothing" John Paul put it this way: "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God" 2 Corinthians We saints have a reservoir of grace, yet it lies like water at the bottom of a well and will not ascend with all our pumping. First God must prime it with His awakening grace. Then it will gush forth. Paul says, "To will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not" Romans Both the will to do and the action which follows are of God.
God is at the bottom of the ladder, and at the top also, the Author and Finisher, assisting the soul at every rung in its ascent to any holy action. God alone is the source and sustainer of all life; therefore, it is His constant regenerating power that keeps the conscience alive. Conscience may be defined as that divine influence at work in man to restrain him from sin.
One evidence of its origin is that it always speaks against sin and for righteousness. Therefore, it cannot be the product of our own hearts, which in their fallen state are "deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked" Jeremiah God uses the conscience to give some knowledge of His righteousness to all, so that no one can stand before Him on the Day of Judgment to plead ignorance Romans 1.
When you become a Christian and consecrate yourself — conscience and all — to Him, the Holy Spirit begins in earnest to perfect you in Christ. It is said when God made the world He ended His work of creation — that is, He made no more new species of creatures. Yet to this day He has not ended His work of providence. In other words, He continually preserves and empowers what He has made with strength to be and to act. A work of art, when complete, no longer needs the artist, nor a house the carpenter when the last nail is in place.
But God's works on behalf of both the outer and the inner man are never off His hands. If the Father's work is a preserving one, the Son's is a redemptive one. Both acts are perpetual. Christ did not end His work when He rose from the dead, just as the Father did not end His work when He finished creation. God rested at the end of creation; and Christ, when He had wrought eternal redemption and "by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high" Hebrews From there He continues the work of intercession for the saint, and thereby keeps him from certain ruin.
If the provisions were left in our own hands, we would soon be bankrupt merchants. God knows we are weak, like cracked pitchers — if filled to the brim and set aside, the contents would soon leak out. So He puts us under a flowing fountain of His strength and constantly refills us. This was the provision He made for Israel in the wilderness: He split the rock, and not only was their thirst quenched at that moment, but the water ran in a stream after them, so that you hear no more complaints for water.
This rock was Christ. Every believer has Christ at his back, following him as he goes, with strength for every condition and trial. The Christian ought to rely on divine strength because this plan results in the greatest advancement of God's own glory Ephesians , If God had given you a lifetime supply of His grace to begin with and left you to handle your own account, you would have thought Him generous indeed.
But He is magnified even more by the open account He sets up in your name. Now you must acknowledge not only that your strength comes from God in the first place, but that you are continually in debt for every withdrawal of strength you make throughout your Christian course. When a child travels with his parents, all his expenses are covered by his father — not by himself.
Likewise, no saint shall say of heaven when he arrives there, "This is heaven, which I have built by the power of my own might.
