Miracles, including deliverances and healings, were the proof that the scriptures were true in the days of the Bible and they still are today. If we want the millions of this generation to believe, they must see proof that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. I believe God will prove Himself in your life today.
Philippians 2:9-10 – “Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven and of those on earth and, of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.The name of Jesus Christ is power and fire that causes satan and his agents to tremble and flee.

The Name Of Jesus Is Power
It is one thing to have the name of Jesus Christ on your lips; it is another thing to believe in His name and confess it. Saying the name of Jesus Christ alone will not bring the power of God on the scene. Healing, deliverance and all of God’s blessings are just like breathing when you believe with your heart what you say with your mouth.
How do we take the step from only saying to actually believing what we say? (Hebrews 10:35-36). This is why we need the Word of God; God does nothing without His Word. If you are believing for God to touch you, He will touch you through His Word and by His Spirit. Many people read the Bible like it is a novel or a magazine and then wonder why it doesn’t work in their lives.To get the information in the Bible to turn to transformation in your life, you need to go into meditation until it leads to revelation. Meditation in the Word of God brings revelation. Click To Tweet
Joshua 1:8 – “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then, you will make your way prosperous and then, you will have good success.”
Keep the Word of God in your mouth. Keep the Word in your mind – meditate on it day and night and then, you will receive revelation to do what it says. You cannot be a doer of the Word because you were told what to do, read it somewhere or completed a course. If you do not meditate until you receive revelation, all your doings will be repetition and imitation of someone else. We live by intimation from the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 6:12 – “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”.
Deliverance Is Real
You have a role to play. Satan and his agents will not leave you just because you ignore them or want them to go. You have to stand in the name of Jesus Christ and command them to leave. I know deliverance is real because I have experienced what the Bible says myself. When it is time for your deliverance, you will still have a choice to make. In the moment of regeneration, you can yield to the Holy Spirit’s delivering influence or stifle it and remain the way you are. Before Jesus healed the blind man, He did not first offer healing but asked, “What do you believe I can do for you?” When the lepers came to Jesus, He was not in any doubt as to their condition or need but Jesus needed to know they had faith to believe for their miracle.In your moment of decision, yield to the Holy Spirit and be Christ filled.

Victory In Christ Jesus
Colossians 2:15-16, details Christ’s absolute victory over all the forces of darkness and now, it is time for them to be disgraced in your life. If you are living life according to what things look like, you will say “This is all a show. This cannot be real”. You have to step into faith to enter the realm of freedom. Freedom does not come to those who keep their Bible shut. Freedom comes to those who take the Word of God into their heart and make it an integral part of them.
There is power in the name of Jesus Christ which no demon, negative power or force in hell can withstand. All the divine power of Heaven is invested in the name of Jesus Christ to accomplish the purpose of salvation. But you have to choose to accept it. Yield to the authority of the Word of God and receive His blessing in every area of your life.
Walk In The Light
John 8:12 – “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
There is no other light than Jesus Christ. As long as you continue to walk by senses and not by faith, you will walk in darkness. What does darkness mean? You will be under your situation and natural circumstances of sickness, want and lack. We will never live an abundant life if we live in darkness. Satan has riches but they come without peace; his riches ensnare just like poverty does. Accept Jesus Christ today and receive His light into your life. The extent to which you think the thoughts of Christ is the same extent to which the power of God will be present in your life. The extent to which we reject Christ’s light, to that same extent we will be filled with a terrifying darkness.
Make this your declaration: I agree with the Word of God. I disagree with anything which contradicts that Word. Sickness, demonic oppression, poverty, curses, I disagree with you. You will leave my life today and you will never come back, in Jesus’ name.
