Using the Authority of God
You had better know the authority you have in God the Father before you try and rise up to that level of warfare. You think that deliverance is just dealing with little demons of lust and lies and silly little things that you are casting out.
No, you don't know what you are playing with. You are playing with something far higher. Be very careful before you go sticking your nose into things you are not ready for.
By the same token you don't have to be afraid once you know who you are. And I am going to be teaching you how to know who you are. I am going to be showing you how to know your authority.
Many years ago before I was even in apostolic office I was still training as a prophet. At one time Lucifer appeared to me in my time of intercession and tried to persuade me to give up everything I wanted to do.
He offered me whatever I wanted if I just dropped all my silly ideas for ministry. I wasn't a baby Christian, but I certainly was not at the level of authority and knowledge that I have now. I just knew one Scripture though. It was, At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, things in earth and things under the earth.
I said to him,
"Satan, at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow. Satan that is your knee included. Your knee will bow to the name of Jesus. You will bow! I stand in Him and I stand in His name and you will bow to me now."
The nice guy with the big smile on his face began to scowl and get extremely angry and agitated. But he couldn't touch me, because he was defeated on Calvary and he knew that I knew it. I stood on the Word and said, "You will bow even in my presence because I stand in the name of Jesus."
He bowed down low with a scowl on his face and disappeared. And he has never come to me again since then. He knows better.
You have authority, and I am going to be showing you how to know your authority and how to use it. You don't have to be afraid of these demonic powers but you need to understand how they work.
