Prayer Summary for October 16, 2014

Scriptural focus…

Isaiah 60:1, “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!” (Amp.)

The following excerpt is taken from I Believe in Visions by Kenneth E. Hagin:

[Jesus is speaking to Kenneth E. Hagin saying…] “Every writer of the New Testament in writing to the Church always told the believer to do something about the devil. The believer has to have authority over the devil, or the Bible wouldn’t tell him to do something about the devil:

Matthew 28:18–20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power [or authority] is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

“You might say, ‘But you could have done something about that evil spirit because this Scripture says you have all power and authority in Heaven and in earth.’ However, I have delegated my authority on the earth to the Church:

Mark 16:15–18, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

“One of the first signs mentioned that will follow believers is that they should cast out devils. That means that in My Name they will exercise authority over the devil. I delegated My authority over the devil to the Church, and I can work only through the Church, for I am the Head of the Church.

“In writing to believers, James said ‘…Resist the devil, and he will flee from you’ (James 4:7). James didn’t say to get God to resist the devil for you. He said, ‘You resist the devil and he will flee from you.’”

I looked up the word “flee” in the dictionary later and saw that one definition is to run from as in terror. As I read that, I remembered how the evil spirits in the vision had fled when I had rebuked them. And since then I have seen them quake and quiver in fear as I exercised my God-given authority over them. They were not afraid of me, but rather of Jesus, whom I represent.

Jesus continued, “Peter said, ‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour’ (1 Peter 5:8). What are you going to do: throw up your hands and say, “I am whipped’? No, a thousand times no! We read in First Peter 5:9, ‘Whom resist steadfast in the faith…’ you couldn’t resist the devil if you didn’t have authority over him. But you do have authority over him, and that is why you can resist him.

“Paul said in his writings to the Church at Ephesus, ‘Neither give place to the devil’ (Eph. 4:27). This means you are not to give the devil any place in you. He cannot take any place unless you give him permission to do so. And you would have to have authority over him or this wouldn’t be true!”

Then Jesus said to me, “Here are your four witnesses: I am the first, James is the second, Peter is the third, and Paul is the fourth. These are the four witnesses I told you I would give instead of just two or three. This establishes the fact that the believer has authority on earth, for I have delegated my authority over the devil to you on the earth. If you don’t do anything about rebuking the devil, then nothing will be done, and that is why many times nothing is done.”

Then I said, “Lord, You have told me about only three categories of evil spirits: the rulers of the darkness of this world, the powers, and the principalities. What about the wicked spirits in the heavenlies?”

He said, “You take care of the ones on earth. I will take care of those in the heavenlies.”

Jesus exhorted me to be faithful, saying, “Fulfill your ministry. Be faithful, for the time is short.” Then He disappeared.

I realized that I was still on my knees in the kitchen of that parsonage, and about an hour and a half had passed while I was caught up in this vision.

Thank You, Father, for the Holy Ghost, that you didn’t leave us as little orphans
You gave us the Holy Ghost, the one that reveals Your plan
You said we are to reign in this life so, Father, we thank You that the Church is ruling and reigning
Saying, “Devil, you have no part in my life. Leave me now”
We thank You for Your Word; it is our medicine
We’re not looking at circumstances; we’re looking at Your Word
We’ll not be hidden—we refuse to hide
We’ll stand at our true height, and we’ll shout it from the roof top
We’re not part of the world, but we’re in the world to shine
Speaking words that will lift and elevate the Church
Answers to give given and walked out and to be implemented
We accept the responsibility of walking out Your plan

As we were praying, I saw myself with the disciples on the way to the temple where they met the crippled man at the gate. I think it’s good sometimes to put ourselves in those places. I heard them say to the man “Get up.” And he got up and he began to shine so bright. He leaped. He ran. He spoke. He was bright because he got up. And what I heard in my spirit was this: “If we, in the name representing who He is, can say to the cripple, “Get up,” then we can say to the devil, “Get out!” So when we say, “Church, get up. Rise up and stand in your place, for it’s time for you to walk out your full race,” we can do it because we’ve been given the authority to speak to our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ to encourage them. “Come on, get up! Rise up! It’s time.” Take the authority that’s been given to you and speak to every nation across the face of the earth.

Continued praying…
We declare healing and wholeness and wellness to the city of Dallas
We put a stop to the fear and a stop to the exposure and advance of that disease in Jesus’ name
We plead the blood of Jesus over that city and those people
We speak to the enemy to stop in your maneuvers and get out in Jesus’ name
Not just there, but across the United States of America
By faith and in the name of Jesus, we take authority that’s been given to us and speak against those plans of the enemy
We hold the blood over our borders, saying “you can’t come in”
We send ministering spirits to minister on behalf of the Church
We call on angels for assistance in Dallas
We loose you to go to the strategic places like airports and the borders and the waterways
We pray over every worker that is assigned over these places
We call for the workers to be vigilant and to be fully aware, watchers on the wall
Perfect love casts out fear
Churches to address it in the right way
Calling the assemblies together, giving direction to the spiritual leaders
It’s an unprecedented move of the Spirit, great gains in the spirit, in territories
Standing their ground and resisting the enemy
Resistance, we lift up resistance in Jesus’ name
Believers standing in their places
Division has to go and leave the body of Christ in Jesus’ name
We are bound together in one accord, getting up and rising up and shining
