Clean your house!
“Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed. But some of them said, “By Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he is driving out demons.” Others tested him by asking for a sign from heaven. Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall. If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebul. Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. “When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up his plunder. “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.“When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.” Luke 11:14-26
First Bind the Strong Man, we must understand that people, even saved, can have unclean spirits within them. As it is written in Luke 4:33, “In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice…” This man in the synagouge was a church goer of his day. And good Jewish man who was honoring the Sabbath. Whether he knew what lurked inside or not, when in the present of Jesus, that which was unseen made itself known. We must understand like Paul’s says, we wrestle against forces unseen. Most people have heard this verse, but few even think it pertains to them. We must not be ignorant of these things as it is Written, God’s people perish due to the lack of knowledge. Do not fear either as Jesus said himself, “ But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you!” We cast out, Bind and rebuke in Jesus Name! We have Authority! For even though the strongman has armor, one greater than he is within us.
We cleanse the house by calling out the strongman. In Jesus Name, call that what afflicts you by name and command it to leave. Do not fear, for we cleanse ourselves to be fear from the slavery of sin. We must know that we cannot allow ourselves to go back as if the Spirit returns, it brings more wick Spirits than itself. It is written that perfect Love cast out all fear. It is only when we seek the Presence of The most high God are we truly freed. Cling to the Name of Jesus, for even in your darkest hour, you can call upon his name!
