TOPIC: Power to Bind and Loose (Repeated)
Matthew 18:18; 16:19; John 20:23
2 Corinthians 2:11“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
Today, we shall examine how to obtain power to bind and loose. You can bind satanic agents. You can bind Goliath. If you stand and fight your Goliath, the trouble in your home and business will disappear completely. While I was in the primary school, I attracted many enemies amongst my classmates for no fault of mine.
In those days, the teachers usually do not whip those who performed poorly in class tests and examinations by themselves. Rather, they assigned that duty to those who performed excellently well in the class. Since I was doing well in my academics, I was always asked to whip the poor performers. After I had whipped them, they would then gather together and wait for me at the gate after school hours to beat me up thoroughly.
This terrible situation continued for a long time. Then one day, I purposed in my mind to do something that would put an end to the unpleasant situation. I bought the peppery balm called Chinese balm. Shortly before the school ended on a particular day, I rubbed my palm with the Chinese balm. As usual, my classmates that I had whipped for poor performance that day were waiting for me at the school gate.
But as the first person attacked me, I just rubbed my palm very aggressively on his eyes, and the unexpected happened. He screamed uncontrollably. I did the same thing to the second person; and that one started screaming too. Since they could not open their eyes, I was able to beat them up very well. That was how I dealt with the giants.
If I may ask you, where did the stone of David get into the body of Goliath? It was the forehead. As a result of that, Goliath could no longer see. It was therefore easy for David to finish him up in record time. The power of binding and loosing is needed today. What you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.
You cannot have real success without making real enemies.
For every power that is pressing you down, your head shall be shifted away and you shall trample upon them.
HYMN – I hear the Saviour say
I hear the Saviour say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim,
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
And now complete in Him
My robe His righteousness,
Close sheltered ‘neath His side,
I am divinely blest.
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.
When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down
All down at Jesus’ feet.
