As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. (Matthew 9:32-33 KJV)
When Jesus came on earth, part of His mission was to expose the devil and his works amongst man. Some of the things He did was heal the sick and cast out demons which the word expose as a cause of many sicknesses, diseases and weaknesses. People had tried everything to get freedom but it wasn’t forthcoming. The devil hid behind a lack of knowledge and the fact that power was in his hands, given to him by Adam when he committed that high treason.
Let’s look at the example above. They brought to Him a dumb man, behind the condition was a devil! I am confident many theories were developed as the cause of his condition but when he came to Jesus, He quickly discerned the situation. His solution was to deal with the demon behind the situation. He cast out the devil! The moment He did, the dumb man spoke! The people marveled, this had not been seen in Israel before. There is something to glean from the response of the people. There are many situations people had given up on and the coming of Jesus brought them hope. No wonder multitudes followed Him.
Looking further at Matthew 10:1,
And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
The same power He held, He passed it on the disciples and looking further, it was passed on to believers. So these demons, also called unclean spirits can lodge themselves in one’s life and cause or manner of issues including sickness, weakness, financial-difficulty, depression, back pain etc. But we can cast them out! Child of God, it is important that you know there are demons, unclean spirits or persons without bodies that track your life looking a moment of weakness so they can fulfill their mission as recorded in John 10:10, the thief comes to kill, steal and destroy! The word tells us that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but a whole organized kingdom of the devil (Ephesians 6:12).
Today make use of your authority. We have overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). Victory is in your camp but the devil would want you to focus on the pain and situation and not God’s word. Today open your mouth and begin to testify that power is in your hands. Rebuke those evil spirits and release the Angels of God to work in your life.
I open my eyes to see and declare victory over my life. I rebuke every evil spirit assigned against my life to cause sicknesses, weakness, financial problems and all manner of issues in Jesus’ name.
