WHAT DID JESUS DO TO THE DEVIL AND HIS BOYS?

Matt 4:24

24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him [[[[[ all ]]]]] sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and [[[[[ torments,]]]]] and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and [[[[[ He healed them.]]]]] (NKJ)

WHAT DID HE DO?? THE WORD SAYS HE HEALED THEM!! NOT SOME OF THEM. HE HEALED THEM PERIOD!!!!!

I LIKE THE WAY PAUL DESCRIBES JESUS MINISTRY IN COLOSSIANS 2:15

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, [[[[[[[[[[ He made a public spectacle of them,]]]]]]]]]] triumphing over them in it. 

ISN'T THAT GOOD? DON'T YOU LIKE IT WHEN THE DEVIL AND HIS BOYS GET EXPOSED? "HE MADE A PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THEM." BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THE LORD HAS TOLD US WE ARE GOING TO ENJOY BATTLING OR OUR CONFRONTATION WITH THE DEVIL. I BELIEVE THAT'S THE WAY HE PUT IT. WHY? WE WIN EVERY TIME. PRAISE GOD!! DON'T YOU LIKE BEING ON A WINNING TEAM? GO WITH JESUS. JESUS IS THE WINNER.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

NOW LETS SKIP OVER TO MATTHEW CHAPTER 8 AND STARTING WITH THE 16TH VERSE--

Matt 8:16

16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed [[[[[ all ]]]]] who were sick, (NKJ)

NOTE THAT WORD ALL. IT'S SO INCLUSIVE. TAKES IN EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!! PRAISE THE LORD.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

AND ALSO NOTICE HE JESUS CAST OUT THE SPIRITS WITH (A) WORD. DOESN'T SOUND LIKE HE WASTED MUCH TIME WITH THEM. [A] WORD. THE SINGULAR

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

WE HAVE SOME EXAMPLES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT OF JESUS MINISTRY AND WHAT HE DID TO THE DEVIL AND HIS BOYS. LETS LOOK AT SOME SPECIFIC EXAMPLES

Matt 8:28

28 When He had come to the other side, to the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two demon-possessed men, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no one could pass that way. (NKJ)

29 And suddenly they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?" (NKJ)

30 Now a good way off from them there was a herd of many swine feeding. (NKJ)

Matt 8:32

32 And He said to them, "Go." So when they had come out, they went into the herd of swine. And suddenly the whole herd of swine ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and perished in the water.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF ONE WORD. JESUS SAID (GO)

CAN YOU SEND SPIRITS SOMEWHERE? -- JESUS DID... PASTOR EVANS LIKES TO SEND THEM SOME WHERE. HE NOTES THAT THEY DON'T LIKE TO GO TO THE PIT. THAT'S INTERESTING EVEN THE DEVILS BOY'S DON'T LIKE TO IT IN THE PIT.   

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

NEXT CHAPTER OVER ANOTHER JESUS STORY CHAPTER 9 DROP DOWN TO VERSE 32

Matt 9:32

32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a man, mute and demon-possessed.

33 And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, "It was never seen like this in Israel!" (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS TAKE A SIDE TRIP TO FIRST JOHN. WE ARE COMING RIGHT BACK TO MATTHEW..

I Jn 3:8

8b He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. [[[[[[[[[ For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.]]]]]]] (NKJ)

HERE IS ONE OF THE BOTTOM LINE REASONS FOR JESUS COMING DOWN TO THE EARTH. THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS SEE IF JESUS CONTINUED TO DO HIS JOB ::::: ANOTHER JESUS STORY

Matt 12:22

22 Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

ANOTHER JESUS STORY MOVE ON UP TO CHAPTER 17 THE 15TH VERSE

Matt 17:15

15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. (NKJ)

Matt 17:18

18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.

JESUS GAVE THAT CHILD A MORE ABUNDANT LIFE

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

I CAN'T RESIST ANOTHER SIDE TRIP. I KNOW THESE TWO SIDE TRIPS ARE CLOSE TOGETHER BUT WE GET A CLEAR LOOK AT THE CARICATURE OF THE DEVIL.

JESUS POINTS OUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIMSELF AND THE DEVIL HERE IN John 10:10

10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS SKIP OVER - (MARK) - AND GO TO THE GOSPEL OF - (LUKE.) -

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS NOT LOOSE SIGHT OF HOW MEAN THAT DEVIL IS. JESUS SAID HE COMES TO WHAT? TO STEAL FROM YOU AND I. TO KILL US IF HE CAN. ANOTHER JESUS STORY THIS TIME THE BOOK OF LUKE 

Luke 4:33

33 Now in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out with a loud voice, (NKJ)

LOOK WHERE THIS DEMON WAS IN CHURCH. DO DEMONS COME TO CHURCH? THEY SURE DO. THEY DID IN JESUS DAY. THEY DO TODAY.

Luke 4:34

34 saying, "Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are-- the Holy One of God!" (NKJ)

ISN'T IT INTERESTING SYNAGOGUE RULERS DIDN'T KNOW WHO JESUS WAS BUT THE DEVIL AND HIS BOYS DID.

Luke 4:35

35 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him. (NKJ)

NOTICE JESUS SHUT THE MOUTH OF THE DEMON FIRST. THE DEMON SHOOK THE GUY BUT DIDN'T HURT HIM.

- ><> - ><> ----    ---- <>< - <>< -

OK JUMPING FROM CHAPTER 4 LETS GO TO CHAPTER 8 ANOTHER JESUS DELIVERANCE

Luke 8:2

2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities-- Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons, (NKJ)

THE ACCOUNT IN MARK IDENTIFIES JESUS AS THE DELIVER

Mark 16:9

9 Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. (NKJ)

WE DON'T HAVE A DESCRIPTION OF THIS INCIDENT. BUT BY THE WORD WE REALIZE THERE WAS A PROBLEM AND JESUS DEALT WITH IT. CHECK WITH THE LORD. IF YOU CAST OUT ONE DEMON THERE JUST MIGHT BE OTHERS.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

THIRTY PERCENT OF JESUS RECORDED MINISTRY WAS SPENT IN DIRECT CONFLICT WITH UNCLEAN SPIRITS. THE DEVILS BOYS. THAT'S ALMOST ONE THIRD OF HIS MINISTRY.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

WE ARE STAYING IN LUKE AND MOVING AHEAD THREE MORE CHAPTERS.

ANOTHER JESUS STORY CHAPTER 13 DOWN TO VERSE 11

Luke 13:11

11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. (NKJ)

Luke 13:12

12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity." (NKJ)

Luke 13:13

13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. (NKJ)

- ><> - ><> ----    ---- <>< - <>< -

THE LAYING ON OF HANDS FOR DELIVERANCE IS NOT COMMON. BUT WE SEE IT WAS DONE IN THIS INSTANCE. THE LAYING ON OF HANDS FOR HEALING HAPPENS IN CHURCH ALL THE TIME. BUT NOT SO FOR DELIVERANCE. IF YOU DO KNOW YOUR AUTHORITY AND YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT YOU CAN DO THIS. BUT IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR AUTHORITY AND HOW TO STAND. DON'T DO THIS. by the spirit

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

AFTER THIS HAPPENED THE RULERS OF THE SYNAGOGUE WERE REALLY BENT OUT OF SHAPE. THEY DIDN'T LIKE THIS AT ALL. JESUS DID THIS IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. AND ON THE SABBATH. SO THEY HAVE A CONFRONTATION. DURING THIS CONFRONTATION...

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS LOOK AT WHAT JESUS SAID DROPPING DOWN TO VERSE 16

Luke 13:16

16 "So ought not this woman, being [[[[[[[[ a daughter of Abraham, ]]]]]]]] whom Satan has bound-- think of it-- for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?" (NKJ)

--- THIS IS AN INTERESTING POINT ---

JESUS IDENTIFIES HER AS A DAUGHTER OF ABRAHAM..... [[[[[[[[[ A WOMAN OF FAITH ]]]]]]]]]ABRAHAM WAS A MAN OF FAITH. THE WORD SAYS HE BELIEVED GOD........----- A DAUGHTER OF ABRAHAM!! -- A WOMAN OF FAITH!! ------CAN A BELIEVER HAVE A DEMON? SURE CAN!

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

THIS IS THE FIRST DELIVERANCE I EVER EXPERIENCED.

WHILE WE ARE ON THIS SUBJECT I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH YOU. BACK IN THE EIGHTIES MY WIFE AND I HAVE ONLY BEEN IN FULL GOSPEL CHURCHES FOR A LITTLE OVER A DOZEN YEARS NOW, MOSTLY IN AND AROUND THE SYRACUSE, N.Y. AREA TILL WE CAME TO THIS CHURCH. IN THE LATE EIGHTIES WE ATTENDED A CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC CONFERENCE AT LE MOYNE COLLEGE IN SYRACUSE, N.Y. THIS WAS OUR FIRST EXPOSURE TO THAT BEAUTIFUL PRAISE AND WORSHIP MUSIC. THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT WERE IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. THAT IS IF SOMEONE HAD A WORD FROM THE LORD THEY WOULD HAVE TO WRITE IT OUT, THEN TAKE IT BEFORE A PANEL. THE PANEL THEN WOULD DETERMINE IF IT COULD BE GIVEN OR NOT. INDIVIDUAL PRAYER, HEALING, ETC, WAS DONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. NOT IN THE OPEN. THAT EXPERIENCE LEFT ME HUNGRY. THAT WORSHIP MUSIC, BUT WHERE, OH WHERE COULD I FIND IT? WELL GOD PUT US IN A LITTLE FULL GOSPEL CHURCH IN SYRACUSE. THE PASTOR DIDN'T PREACH. IT WAS ALL TEACHING. PRAISE GOD. GOD KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED AND WHEN YOU NEED IT.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

WE HAD ONLY BEEN ATTENDING THIS LITTLE FULL GOSPEL CHURCH A SHORT TIME WHEN DURING THE WORSHIP SERVICE, (BY THE WAY WORSHIP SERVICE WAS AN HOUR AND A HALF LONG, ONLY ONE SERVICE ON SUNDAY) AND DURING THE WORSHIP SERVICE ON THIS PARTICULAR SUNDAY A DEMON SPIRIT STARTED TORMENTING THIS PRETTY YOUNG CHRISTIAN GIRL. SHE HAD TWO REAL NICE CHILDREN. THEY SAT IN FRONT OF US EVERY WEEK. HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW DEMON SPIRIT'S GET ALL STIRRED UP WHEN THEY ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD? MANY PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU A CHRISTIAN CAN'T HAVE A DEMON. DON'T BELIEVE IT FOR A MINUTE! THAT TEACHING NEVER HAD A CHANCE WITH ME. BUT IF I HADN'T EXPERIENCED THIS MORE THAN ONCE I COULD HAVE BOUGHT INTO THIS UNTRUTH. ANYWAY WHEN A PROBLEM CAME UP IN THIS CHURCH THEY TOOK CARE OF IT RIGHT THEN AND THERE. THEY EXPECTED ALL BELIEVERS TO BE DOERS OF THE WORD. MOST OF THE TIME THEY WOULD MINISTER VERY OPENLY. HALF OF THE TIME THE PASTOR WOULD STEP ASIDE AND THE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH WOULD DO THE MINISTERING. THAT WAS THE CASE THIS TIME. ABOUT FIVE WOMEN MINISTERED TO THIS GAL. SHE SPIT AT THEM, BARFED, THE WHOLE NINE YARDS. IN ABOUT FIFTEEN MINUTES SHE WAS DELIVERED. THE FUNNY PART WAS WHEN THEY STARTED MINISTERING THIS DELIVERANCE THE PASTOR SAID "ANYONE WHO ISN'T FAMILIAR WITH THESE THINGS STAY BACK OUT OF THE WAY." MY WIFE AND I MOVED FROM WHERE WE WERE SITTING TO THE BACK PART OF THE CHURCH. THE PASTOR CAME AROUND BEHIND US. MY WIFE DIDN'T SEE HIM. HE TAPPED HER ON THE SHOULDER AND ASKED HER IF EVERY THING WAS ALL RIGHT. MY WIFE ALMOST CAME OUT OF HER SKIN. ON THE WAY HOME ABOUT A FORTY FIVE MINUTE DRIVE, NORMALLY WE WOULD TALK ABOUT WHAT WENT ON IN CHURCH. THIS TIME DEAD SALIENCE. FINALLY MY WIFE SAID "WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?" I HAD TO REPLY I DON'T KNOW BUT THOSE WOMEN MINISTERING SURE LOOKED LIKE THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE BECAME OUR VERY BEST FRIENDS THAT WE HAVE EVER HAD IN OUR LIVES. PRAISE GOD. THEY STILL LOVE DOING THE WORKS OF JESUS. JUST THINK WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER IN HEAVEN SOME DAY. YOU KNOW THAT'S THE ONLY THING YOUR GOING TO TAKE TO HEAVEN. ALL THE MATERIAL THING'S OF THIS EARTH WILL BE GONE. CHRISTIAN FRIENDS ARE FOREVER.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

A LARGE PENTECOSTAL DENOMINATION, THEY HAVE CHURCHES IN EVERY CITY IN AMERICA. THERE ARE FOUR OF THEM RIGHT HERE IN THIS AREA DON'T BELIEVE A CHRISTIAN CAN HAVE A DEMON. THE DEVIL CAN HAVE A FIELD DAY WITH THAT CAN'T HE?  NOW WE HAVE LOOKED AT HOW JESUS HANDLED THE DEVIL IN HIS OWN PERSONAL MINISTRY.  BUT DID HE DO IT ALL?

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

STAYING IN THE GOSPEL OF LUKE BACK UP TO CHAPTER 10 FIRST VERSE 1 JESUS SENDS OUT OTHERS

Luke 10:1

1 After these things the [[[[[[[[[ Lord appointed seventy others also,]]]]]]] and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.

AND DROPPING DOWN TO THE NINTH VERSE JESUS GIVES THEM THEIR MARCHING ORDERS

Luke 10:9

9 "And heal the sick there, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.' (NKJ)

GOING DOWN TO THE 17TH VERSE WE READ ABOUT THE RESULTS

Luke 10:17

17 Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, [[[[[[[[[[ even the demons are subject to us in Your name."]]]]]]]]]] (NKJ)

IT MAKES YOU JOYFUL WHEN YOU CAN KNOCK THE STILTS OUT FROM UNDER THE DEVIL.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT AFTER WHAT THE DEVIL HAS STOLEN FROM ME I DON'T WANT TO MISS A CHANCE TO GET EVEN WITH HIM. I HATE THE DEVIL.

THESE SCRIPTURES DISPELS THE MYTH THAT DEVINE PHYSICAL HEALING WAS JUST FOR THE TWELVE APOSTLES AND ENDED AT THAT POINT.

Luke 10:19

19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and [[[[[[ over all the power of the enemy,]]]]] and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (NKJ) PRAISE THE LORD!

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

AFTER JESUS DEATH AND RESURRECTION LETS LOOK AT THE EARLY CHURCH.  BY THE WAY, WE ARE THE CHURCH. WE ARE LIVING IN THE CHURCH AGE.

Acts 5:12

12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon's Porch. (NKJ)

Acts 5:16

16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were [[[[[ all healed.]]]]] (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

GARY KINNAMAN B.A. M.A. SENIOR PASTOR OF WORD OF GRACE CHURCH -- MESA ARIZONA

COMMENTS ABOUT ACTS 5:12 -- "SIGNS AND WONDERS CHARACTERIZED THE MINISTRY OF THE EARLY CHURCH. AND ARE EQUALLY INTENDED TO BE EXPECTED IN AND THROUGH THE CHURCH TODAY.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

PHILIP THE EVANGELIST IN ACTS

Acts 8:5

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them  (NKJ).

6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. (NKJ)

7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. (NKJ) PRAISE THE LORD!!!

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

MAKE SURE THAT THE PERSON WHO WANTS DELIVERANCE UNDERSTANDS THIS TEACHING THAT JESUS BROUGHT FORTH.................

Luke 11:24

24 "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' (NKJ)

25 "And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. (NKJ)

26 "Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first." (NKJ)

OK LETS TALK A LITTLE BIT AT THIS POINT. I LIKE TO USE 90% SCRIPTURE AND 10% GIFT OF GAB. THIS IS THE OTHER. THE 10%

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

IF THE PERSON WHO WANTS DELIVERANCE IS NOT SERIOUS ABOUT MAKING A TURN A ROUND IN THEIR LIFE. THEY SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF A GREATER PROBLEM THAT COULD ARISE.

A DEAR SISTER IN CHRIST HAD THIS EXPERIENCE. SHE MINISTERED DELIVERANCE TO A LADY THAT LIVED IN AN APARTMENT HOUSE. WHEN THE GUY'S WIFE IN THE OTHER APARTMENT WENT TO VISIT RELATIVES SHE WOULD JUMP IN BED WITH HIM. THAT TYPE OF ACTIVITY LEAVES THE DOOR OPEN FOR THE WRONG SPIRITS TO ENTER THE PICTURE. THAT DOESN'T MEAN TO IMPLY THAT IS ALWAYS GOING TO HAPPEN BUT IT DID IN THIS CASE. THE LADY GOT DELIVERED. LATTER ON THE MANS WIFE LEFT AGAIN AND SHE JUMPED IN BED WITH HIM AGAIN. SHE REQUESTED DELIVERANCE AGAIN ONLY THIS TIME IT WAS A MESS. IT WAS JUST LIKE THIS SCRIPTURE VERSE "THE LAST STATE OF THE MAN WAS WORSE THAN THE FIRST." IT WAS A REAL TOUGH DELIVERANCE THE SECOND TIME AROUND. NOT A PLEASANT THING. I AM NOT SAYING THIS HAPPENS IN EVERY CASE. BUT IT CAN HAPPEN. IN THIS CASE IT DID.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

WE HAVE JUST LOOKED AT MANY WORKS THAT JESUS PERFORMED. AND SOME THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN THE EARLY CHURCH AS THEY MINISTERED DELIVERANCE TO PEOPLE.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

NOW AT THE END OF THE BOOK WE READ IN REVELATION THAT THE DEVIL GETS HIS DUE REWARD. CAST INTO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT AND LATTER ON INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

REVELATION CHAPTER 20 VERSE 1

1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. (NKJ)

Rev 20:2

2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;

Rev 20:3

3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. (NKJ)

Rev 20:10

10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (NKJ)

SO IN THE END THE DEVIL GETS HIS JUST REWARD. WE WILL PROBABLY GET TO SEE HIM. ISAIAH 14:16 

16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, and consider you, saying: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

IN THE MEAN TIME WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THE DEVIL?

IT IS TIME TO GET DOWN TO YOU AND I LETS TOUCH ON A COUPLE OF AREAS.

FIRST GO TO :: JOHN 14:12 MANY OF YOU KNOW THIS ONE BY HEART. JOHN 14:12 STARTS OUT LIKE THIS --- "MOST ASSUREDLY" - THE AMERICAN STANDARD PUTS IT "VERILY VERILY" --- THE OLD KINGS SAYS -- WHICH MEANS TRULY TRULY --------I LOVE THE WAY THE LIVING BIBLE PUTS IT ---[[[[[[ THE TRUTH IS ]]]]]]

WE WILL GO TO THE NEW KING JAMES

John 14:12

12 "Most assuredly, I say to you, [[[[[[[[[[[ he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also;]]]]]]]]] and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

ARE YOU A BELIEVER IN JESUS? THIS VERSE SAYS THAT WE ARE TO BE DOING WHAT JESUS DID. NOTICE WHAT THIS VERSE DOESN'T SAY ------ JUST PEOPLE WITH TITLES -- PASTORS, ELDERS, DEACONS, ALL THOUGHT THEY ARE INCLUDED------ [[[[[ JESUS SAYS ]]]] ------- [[[[[[ B E L I E V E R S ]]]]]]] -------- WILL DO THE WORKS THAT I DO. THAT'S YOU AND I THE WORKS THAT JESUS DID. THINK ABOUT THE HEALING AND DELIVERANCE'S THAT TOOK PLACE IN JESUS MINISTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

LETS PUT THE ICING ON THE CAKE

HE COMMISSIONED US ---- THAT AGAIN IS YOU AND I BELIEVER.  NOW LETS GO TO THE LAST CHAPTER OF THE BOOK OF MARK. THE GREAT COMMISSION:

MARK CHAPTER 16 STARTING WITH VERSE 15

Mark 16:15

15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (NKJ).

16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

17 "And these signs will follow those who believe: [[[[[[[[[[ In My name ]]]]]]]] [[[[[[[ they will cast out demons; ]]]]]]]]]] they will speak with new tongues; (NKJ)

18 "they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; [[[[[ they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." ]]]]]]]] (NKJ)

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

BACK TO VERSE 17 TAKE NOTE OF [[[[[[ "IN MY NAME" ]]]]]]] (P.O.A.) THAT IS POWER OF ATTORNEY. IF YOU SIGN A POWER OF ATTORNEY FORM, RECORD IT IN THE CLERKS OFFICE, AND DESIGNATE ME TO DO BUSINESS FOR YOU. YOU CAN LEAVE TOWN AND I CAN DO ALL KIND'S OF BUSINESS IN YOUR NAME. YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE TOWN. I CAN GET INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT'S, SELL YOUR HOUSE, BUY A TICKET TO OKIE FNOKIE, IT'S JUST LIKE HAVING THE SIGNET RING. THINK ABOUT IT. CAN YOU IMAGINE HIM TRUSTING US WITH THAT MUCH AUTHORITY? SOUND'S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. BUT THERE IT IS "IN MY NAME". WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO? ONLY THE WORLD. THAT DOESN'T APPLY TO THE KING'S KIDS. THIS ( P.O.A.) JESUS HAS GIVEN US GUARANTEES US WE CAN KICK THE DEVIL OUT OF THE PLACES HE HAS GRABBED, THAT HE NEVER HAD ANY RIGHT TO BE IN THE FIRST PLACE. THINK ABOUT IT. HE IS ALREADY DEFEATED. JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE EVERYTHING HE IS GOING TO DO ABOUT THE DEVIL. THE REST IS UP TO US. JESUS HAS GIVEN YOU AND I BELIEVER THE AUTHORITY IN HIS NAME. --------- YOU AND I FOLKS.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

SOMEONE SUGGESTED THIS DAILY CONFESSION. IT IS A GOOD ONE. I WANT TO PASS IT ALONG TO YOU. WHEN YOU GET UP IN THE MORNING SAY --- I AM GOING TO GIVE THE DEVIL A HEART ATTACK.  THIS IS WHAT I AM GOING TO DO AND IT WILL ACCOMPLISH THUS AND SUCH. 

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

ON 3-2-97 BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT GOD TOLD THIS CHURCH BODY --TAKE YOUR AUTHORITY OVER THE ENEMY FOR HE IS CURSED, HE CRAWLS ON THE GROUND.

><> - ><> - --      -- - <>< - <><

PROVERBS 6:31 ADDRESSING A THIEF SAYS

31 Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; he may have to give up all the substance of his house. (NKJ)

HAS THE DEVIL EVER STOLEN ANYTHING FROM YOU? IF HE HAS THE WORD SAYS HE MUST RESTORE TO YOU SEVENFOLD. PRAY ABOUT IT. CLAIM IT BACK IN JESUS NAME. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FINANCES, ALTHOUGH IT COULD BE. IT COULD ALSO BE JOY, HEALTH, ETC
