Rhapsody of Realities 13th August 2020 – Cut Off Satan’s Influence by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TODAY’S TOPIC: CUT OFF SATAN’S INFLUENCE
SCRIPTURE: All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD – (Psalm 118:10).
TODAY’S MESSAGE: RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 13TH AUGUST 2020
The underlined word “will” in the verse above doesn’t exist in the original Hebrew text; rather, it’s in the affirmative. The NIV, like several other translations, puts it correctly; it says, “All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the LORD I cut them off.” He didn’t say, “…I will cut them off.”
David was making a proclamation in the Spirit ever before he would destroy his enemies with the sword. He had to first destroy them with words. This is so important because it shows us how we should deal with the adversary. You’re to cut off the influence of Satan over the nations, leaders, and governments of the world. That’s what you do in praying for nations and leaders.
David was emphatic with the phrase, “cut off” because sometimes, you’ve got to say it several times. When we hear of wars, pandemics, insecurity, economic downturns, etc., and we notice that Satan is taking advantage of them to keep people in fear and mislead nations, then we step in. Like David, we cut off Satan’s influence.
When you see the adversary on rampage, holding nations hostage in whatever form, don’t keep quiet; cut off his influence with your prayer and faith-filled words. The Bible says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power…”
(Ecclesiastes 8:4), and we’re kingpriests unto God (Revelation 1:6).
Even now, with the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, take your place and cut off principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places. Expel them from your home, the schools, your government and from public places. Praise God!
TODAY’S PRAYER: Precious Father, I thank you for the authority in the Name of Jesus with which we prevail over Satan and his cohorts. By that authority, I cut off principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places, from every sector, establishment and aspect of government in my nation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
