Nov 12, 2017 – Sunday Inspiration: Engaging The Power Of The Holy Ghost To Devastate All Satanic Forces
By David Oyedepo
We discover from scriptures that as our destinies are great in Christ; so also are the oppositions against them. Furthermore, there are wars against our destinies and these wars are largely spiritual. As it is written: For a great door and effectual is opened unto me and there are many adversaries (1Corithians16:9).
However, it is important to recognise that we live in an embattled and wicked world; which is why there are forces against our fulfilment of destinies; and until they are conquered, we remain defeated. As I have often said, the enemies will not bow to our religion, neither will they bow to the scriptures we quote; they will only bow to the power of God.
Interestingly, God’s invisible Power is domicile, embedded and resides in the Holy Ghost. That is, no matter how great the invisible battles, they can only be confronted with a superior invisible force and that is the Holy Ghost.
But, Who then is the Holy Ghost?
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one (1 John 5:7).
The Holy Ghost is God’s Principal Invisible Force and His mission is to devastate all satanic forces wherever they are found. As the Spirit of the living God, He is the Carrier, Communicator and Transmitter of the Power of God. Therefore, when we are confronted by the invisible forces of darkness, we engage this invisible Power from on high.
By His Ministry, amongst other things, He is to set free the captives and open prison doors.
As the invisible principal force of God, He deals with all the invisible resistances, oppositions and barriers on our paths. Consequently, these invisible forces will only bow to the operations of the invisible Holy Ghost. So, nothing is permitted to stop us when the Holy Ghost is at work.
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).
These opposing forces are not permitted to resist our progress, success, accomplishment, exploits or breakthroughs.
So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19)
HOW DOES THE HOLY GHOST PERFORM THIS MISSION?
Isaiah 61:1-2 gives us a clear picture of the mission of the Holy Ghost to the believers. As it is written: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.
Based on the scripture above, the Holy Ghost performs the following:
He proclaims liberty and comforts all that mourn: This is why He is called the Comforter. He brings an end to the barriers on our paths and crisis in our lives.
To execute judgment: This is one of the core missions of the Holy Ghost. He executes judgment against the prince of this world and all his agents (John 16:7-11); and that is the only way we can possess our possessions and fulfil destiny in a grand style.
He is also God’s weapon of vengeance: Until vengeance answers, our liberty may not be in view (Exodus 4:22-23). Until God’s judgment answered, Pharaoh did not let Israel go. Vengeance needed to answer for them to possess their possession. They were supposed to be in Egypt for 400 years, but they were delayed for 30 years. Please understand that there are forces of delay from hell that are only awaiting divine judgment.
In conclusion, the ministry of the Holy Ghost is a non-negotiable requirement for anyone that desires vengeance on his enemies because only the power of the Holy Ghost is above all the powers of our enemies (Matthew 28:18). But to gain access to the Holy Ghost, you must be born again.
Are you born again? If you are not, this is an opportunity to do so. Simply say the following prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the Living God.
Today, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now I know I am born again!” For further reading, please get my books: Anointing for Breakthrough, Understanding the Anointing, Anointing for Exploits, Release of Power.
