“And If I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or how can one enter a strong man’s house, and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.” - Matthew 12:27-29
Jesus says the strong man refers to Satan who commands the demons under his control. Therefore he must first be driven out through the weapons we have, in Christ.
These are the name of the Lord Jesus, for He said you will cast out demons in His name. We also have the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and we know that we can overcome the devil by the word of God.
The devil does not have the right of way in your life. Stand your ground and drive him off in the name of the Lord Jesus. Do not allow the devil to push you around. You assert your authority through the Lord Jesus and plunder the kingdom of the devil.
Drive off thoughts of failure, fear, criticism and negativism. We must be able to say like Jesus “The devil has no place in me.”
Dear heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus demonstrated Your will in plundering the kingdom of darkness. Help me today to resist the devil and through the mighty weapons You have given me to plunder the kingdom of the devil.
