As you well know the devil is a thief and a killer. His ministry is to spread as much misery as he can. The world is ignorant of his devices so they spend billions of dollars learning how to live with open oppression. The Jewish people were well aware of the wiles of the evil but could do nothing to stop him. The devil loves to put hell in people’s lives and then pass the blame on to some innocent bystander.
Acts 10:38 God anointed Jesus with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.
The Word oppress means to exercise dominion over. Jesus had dominion over the devil so he had no problem casting him out. Jesus did not have dominion over the devil as the Son of God, He had authority because He was born a righteous man. Any born-again believer is a righteous man and has dominion over demons. But we have two problems, most Christians have no revelation of their righteousness, nor can they discern the presence of devils. On account of such ignorance, the devil had been swiping every good thing that Christians have. If it’s good, if it’s a blessing, the devil is after it and whatever he takes means nothing to him. The devil finds pleasure in making people’s lives as miserable as possible, he is loyal to no one and he will even attacks his own subjects.
Mathew 6:20 Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where moths nor rust can corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.
Every time you choose to live by God’s Word and every time you move in love, you make deposits in your heavenly account. Making deposits in your heavenly account is the safest place in the world. God protects them and the devil has no access into Heaven. You will absolutely know when you make a deposit, nothing is there by accident.
Mathew 6:21 For where your treasure is there will your heart be also.
We can make deposits every day and so we can come to expect to have those treasures now and forever.
Mathew 7:12 Do unto others what you would want other to do to you, this is a spiritual law.
When we operate in this law, we can make withdrawals from our heavenly account. On account of the law of supernatural increase, we can withdraw more than what we put in. The devil can manipulate the laws of man but not the laws of God. No matter how intricate man’s security is, the devil will find a way to get his hands on it.
Proverbs 6:31 If a thief be caught, he must restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
If the devil steals from you, that’s not the end of it. You can use your authority to make him pay you back seven times more than what he stole. God wants us to make the devil’s last days just as unproductive as possible. If the devil can’t get anything from you, he will just move to the next guy and get back to you later. We need to make disappointing the devil a habit. He must come to know that we don’t tolerate devils. The devil is a thief but not to us, we don’t accept him as a thief. We treat him as the loser he is. No devil, no swiping.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
