Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 9th – Cast Out Demons In Jesus’ Name!

(They Have To Answer Their Names)

TO THE BIBLE: Mark 16:17
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons….”

Once, I commanded a devil to come out of a young man, and the devil said, “I’m not going!” and turned violent. The ushers were trying to hold the man back but I beckoned on them to leave him. As he charged at me angrily, I remained calm and said, “You’re gone!” Suddenly, the man became very calm and fell to the floor as the devil left him.

One of the officials with me later asked me, “Pastor, I don’t understand exactly what happened. You asked the devil to go, but he didn’t go. Then you said, ‘You’re gone, and then he went out.” My response was to explain that every word of God is a name and what He says is what becomes.

We find a very inspiring, similar scenario with Jesus in Mark 7:25-30. A Syrophenician woman had come to Jesus and implored Him to cast the devil out of her daughter. Jesus said to her, “…Go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter” (Mark 7:29). That devil had to answer the name that Jesus just called him—“Gone out.”

The Bible says the woman got home and found the devil was gone from her daughter. Sometimes, you need to know how to address demons when you cast them out. There’re times you’re led by the Spirit to say to that devil, “Come out and return no more!”

Even in praying against their activities in the nations, it’s important to say the right things: cut off their influence on your nation and tell them, “You’re gone from this nation! Your influence has been broken; your dominion has been stopped!” Hallelujah!

Someone rightly referred to the activities of satan around the world today as mere kicks of a dying horse. However, we’re full of power and have dominion over him. He’s frustrated and paralyzed; his works have been brought to nothing, but we remain triumphant and victorious.
We’re reigning through Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit over satan and his cohorts of darkness. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, thank you for the authority granted us in Christ with which we exercise dominion over Satan and his demons. Their influence is cut off from the nations! We put an end to their rampage. The Church is triumphant, reigning through Christ on the earth by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
