Joel 2:28 – “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions”.
When my life was controlled by demonic forces, I was capable of beating and attacking people. I was taken to a retreat centre, and was being counseled by a young counselor. She had the gift of tongues. She revealed every evil deed I had done with details like the year it happened etc. I was left wondering how she was able to speak of my past sins with such accuracy. I was angry and fuming, so I got up and attacked her. I nearly choked her to death. She screamed and 6 – 7 volunteers separated us and made me sit quietly.
Finally when I was delivered from this insanity by the Word of God I began to understand the power in the name of Jesus. I recalled this incident and was saddened that this gifted counselor was terrorized by the demon in me. I began to question God about it. The revelation was awesome. All that the counselor needed to do was call on the name of JESUS, when I was attacking her. Instead she showed fear and called for human help.
Romans 10:8 – But what does it say? “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”
Many times in my life, I have been faced with situations like the one I described above. But the scripture written below is the one I believe in, now I need not fear any demon. Just ponder about it – if Jesus lives in me do I fear the devil or do I give the devil orders to leave the person? Surely the one who is greater – JESUS CHRIST gives orders to the deceiver to leave.
1John 4: 4 – You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
When I believed with all my heart and strength, that Jesus lives in me, I went all over preaching the love of Christ to people. The moment I laid hands on the sick and troubled, they experienced healing and freedom from their bondages. The power of the Word of God which is in my heart and in my mind and on my lips is all I need
