For I have
given you power over all the works of the enemy and nothing
shall by any means hurt you. Therefore do not be afraid to
speak to the principalities and powers that have sought to
make life hard for you. I will back you up and you will see
your enemy fleeing from you very quickly. I have come that
you might have life and life in all its fullness. Do not be
tricked into thinking that I came to bring death and sickness.
Take your stand and command the enemy to take his hands off
of what I bought for you on Calvary's tree.
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. Luke 10:19

For this cause be ruled by God; but make war on the Evil One
and he will be put to flight before you. James 4:7
is so important that we realise the authority we have in Christ.
If we only knew how much we have put up with from demons that
have run rings round us when we just needed to tell them to
go in that mighty name and nature of Jesus Christ. Greater
is He that is in us than He that is in the world. The Kingdom
that is in us suffers violence from demonic forces to try
to take away the peace and joy that Christ won for us, and
we need to violently come against the one who is coming against
us.You wouldn't gently tell pigs to go out of your parlour...
No... you would chase them out with the biggest stick you
Jesus won all the battles on Calvary, and he gave us the job
of policing what he won for us. We win when we get on the
battleground and stand declaring that the ground belongs to
Jesus knowing that we have the legal rights to tell the trespassers
to go. Its time we got some righteous anger and took a lesson
from Jesus, when he ran amok in the temple. We don't need
to come against people, we haven't been given authority over
them, but we need to carry on the work that Jesus came to
do..... to destroy the works of the enemy....
reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of
the devil." 1 John 3:8
