Summary: To every Christian, it is given the power to bind and loose. As David was instructed by God to pursue, overtake and recover his possession, any born-again child of God has received the license to stop the activity of Satan and loose his possession out of
POWER TO BIND, LOOSE AND SPOIL
Dr. D. K. Olukoya
Wonderful God, we bless and thank You for it is written that the name of the Lord is a strong tower and the righteous runneth therein and is safe. Because we have escaped into this Tower and Power, anything pursuing us is just wasting its strength. Accept our thanks, in Jesus’ name. Open our understanding. Paralyse every power and disgrace every spirit that is after us, in Jesus’ name. Thank you Lord, in Jesus’ name.
Matthew 12:29: “Or else how can one enter a strongman’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strongman? and then he will spoil his house.”
Luke 11:21-22: “When a strongman armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger man than he shall come upon him and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.”
Matthew 16:18 –19: “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bind in heaven and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Colossians 2:15: “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
In these passages, three words stand out: ‘bind,’ ‘loose’ and ‘spoil.’ If you are a careful reader and a student of the word of God, you will notice that the phrase ‘to bind’ in the Bible means many things:
a. To stagnate i.e. you can arrest the movement of a thing.
b. To paralyse i.e. you can make evil powers to develop spiritual stroke.
c. To strangulate.
d. To take captive.
e. To entangle.
f. To tie like a goat from hand to feet to keep it from struggling too much.
g. To make movement hard.
h. To have a controlling effect.
i. To choke.
WHAT THEN DO YOU BIND?
We bind the works of darkness. You can bind demon activities and they won’t move. You can bind evil progress and it will stop. You can bind evil forces, evil thoughts, evil trance, evil imaginations, evil strategies, evil plans, evil authorities, satanic prayers, satanic challenges, satanic desires, satanic exploitations, evil decisions, evil agreements, evil counsels, evil threats, evil attacks, evil programmes, evil debate, evil design, evil intelligence, evil re-enforcement, evil opposition, and dream manipulators.
Who are Dream Manipulators?
They are the powers that show you your enemies as your friends and your friends as your enemies in the dream. So when you wake up, you start quarreling with your friends and getting friendly with your enemies. They manipulate people’s dreams in order to confuse them. When such people have good dreams bad things will happen to them and when they have bad dreams good things will come their way. It is the work of dream manipulators.
Anytime you pray serious prayers and have attacks in your dream, know that the prayers worked. So what you should do is to continue with the same prayers. But if you get scared and discontinue, your enemy will win against you.
You can bind evil parents; there are some people who have fathers and mothers in the spiritual world. This is why some earthly parents cannot control their children. Such children are being manipulated by their mothers and fathers in the spirit. A brother woke up at 4 a.m. one morning and sat on his bed to start praying, suddenly, he saw his four year old daughter who was sleeping on the mat turn into a big woman, fully dressed with hand bag ready to move out. He was shocked. Instead of using the word of God and prayer, he folded his sleeves and jumped on the girl, but the girl dodged him and he hit the bed and wounded himself. Before he could gather himself together, the girl was back on her mat. In fact he could not touch her again. It dawned on the man that he had a daughter who was older than him. There are many children like that who don’t give a damn to orders of the earthly parents because they know that their satanic parents will punish their earthly parents if they maltreat them.
You can bind spirit husband and wife. We talk a lot about spirit husband but many men have spirit wives. If a man has a spirit wife, his wife at home would be in trouble. The spirit wife will oppress her, cause financial problem in that home, and fighting because the spirit wife considers the physical wife as a competitor.
