People have the spiritual authority over the enemy when they use the name of Jesus.
Ephesians 6:11-18, to understand our spiritual authority
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
SPIRITUAL WEAPONS ARE WARFARE TO STAND AGAINST THE ENEMY.
Helmet of salvation – without being born again, you cannot use the name of Jesus for protection. And we see that in Scripture when the son of Sceva try to do that very thing.
13Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.” 14Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this. 15But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?” 16And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered alld of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
So we see in the scripture, unless you were born again, you have no power or authority to use the name of Jesus against any demonic forces. That's why it's important that if you don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ, this is the time, this the day is your salvation and this is the season for you to get born again. When you are born again, you have the authority over all the demons, over all the works of the devil according to the Word of the Lord.
17The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” 18And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 20Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
The Belt of Truth
You need to know intimately Yeshua Jesus through the truth of His Word because in these last days even the elect could be deceived.So in the last days, there will be people with demonic spirits that will be operating in signs, wonders and miracles and if you don't have the belt of truth through the Word of God upon you, then you could be deceived thinking that these people truly are from God and they are not.
And we see this in Revelation 16:13-14
In these last days, the anti Christ will be mortally wounded, and he will rise from the dead. And if you don't have the BELT OF TRUTH, you may be deceived into thinking that he is the Messiah. And there will be many who will think that he is the Messiah. And they will bow down to the anti Christ declaring that he is God because he is risen from the dead by these lying signs, wonders and miracles. And the Lord does not want His holy and chosen people to be deceived in these last days.. 13And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. 14For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.
The Breastplate of Righteousness\
If you are not living a holy, pure and righteous life through the power of the Holy Spirit, then you're opening up the doors for that demonic spirits to attack you. You're opening up the door for them to attack your physical body with sickness, to destroy your family, to destroy your finances.
So it's important that the enemy has nothing in you or on you. In these last days, it's imperative that you walk in righteousness, walk in holiness and obey what the Word of God says.
Yeshua presented the Gospel and He was never violent, He was never rude and He was never obnoxious. He presented the truth, He healed the people of their sicknesses and their diseases and then He moved on. And those that didn't believe Him, He just said to them, “your father's the devil”. And that's why when He spoke to the Sadducee's and Pharisees He said: You're like whitewashed tombs, on inside of you are dead man's body and on the outside, you look good but on the inside, you're dead.
Jesus spoke the truth but He didn't do it obnoxiously, He brought that Gospel of Peace in such a way that the masses were attracted to Him. And that's what we need to do today. We need to bring the Gospel of Peace in such a way that the people are attracted to the love that we carry which is the love of Yahweh.\
It takes faith to believe that we have authority over satan and overall of his demons.
The Word says that we have authority over him. That is why if you choose to believe it and you choose to activate your faith and step out in faith, you take authority over these demonic spirits over your family, over your life and over the lives of even unbelievers
Sword of the Spirit – which is the Word of God.
Yeshua defeated satan in the wilderness by using the Word of God. He used Scriptures. We need to get back to that. We are really lacking in the church and in these days about using Scriptures. We need to use Scriptures in our prayer. We need to pray Scriptures over our family, we need to release Scriptures into the atmosphere by declaring them out loud. We need to get audio Bibles in our homes 24/7 playing to release the Word of God because the Word of God is power, He is the Word. And we need to get back to them.
Psalm 91 is a great spiritual warfare psalm that you need to say out loud to release into your family's home.
Part of Psalm 91: Because you have made the Lord who is my refuge even the most high your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you nor shall any plague come near your dwelling place, For He shall give His angels charge of you to keep you in all your ways , in their hands they shall bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample under foot.
You have angels of protection over you, and we have to stand on that promise and also the name of Jesus.
