“…and these signs will follow those who believe; in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover…” Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV)

Christianity is not a life of weakness but of power, dominion and authority in Christ Jesus. Therefore, at every point, it is important that you refuse to allow any form of oppression fester in your life. Most times, when God’s people begins to face certain spiritual oppression, they tend to treat the matter lightly and just let it continue, thinking it will soon go away, but the truth remains that the devil is not one who quits except he is seriously resisted. If you give him a foot, he will take a foot hold. So if you notice any form of spiritual manipulation or machination going on in your life, don’t keep quiet but attack it with all vehemence using the name of Jesus. Terminate all such oppression and put the devil where He belongs now that it is early.

     Someone might say but sir, how do I do this, knowing that the devil is very powerful? Well, it is simple, use your authority in Christ Jesus and put a stop to all such oppressions going on in your life and in your family. Something you must understand is that the devil is not more powerful than Jesus Christ and you are complete in Him (Jesus). Now, if the devil can’t oppress Jesus, neither can he oppress you because you are in Christ Jesus. The Bible records that God has “…made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved) and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…” “…far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come…” Ephesians 2:5-6, 1:21 (NKJV). So if you have been raised together with Christ and made to sit together with Him in heavenly places, it means that in the realm of the spirit, you are far above the devil in every way, and you have the authority in Christ Jesus to put him where he belongs. So I admonish you to refuse all manner of spiritual oppression. Use the name of Jesus, speak with boldness and banish the works and activities of the devil out of your life. If you would do this for quite a number of days with fasting and prayers, you would keep your life free from all forms of oppression. Praise God!


Resist the devil now, and he will flee from you!


I am complete in Christ Jesus who is the head of all principality and powers, therefore I declare that all manner of demonic oppression currently going on in or against my life and family is hereby cancelled and arrested never to resurface in the name of Jesus. Amen!
