Scripture:

Ps. 6:8-9
8. Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9. The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

Depart from me…

The evil spirits shall be commanded to leave.

I am sure you know that Jesus was tempted by the devil in the desert at the beginning of his ministry (You can read about the occurrence in Matt. 4:1-11). During that time the devil quoted from the Scriptures, and Jesus answered by quoting from the Scriptures. Many have preached and taught that passage in their sermons, but there is a detail that seldom appears. That’s the one we will look at here.

Matt. 4:10
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Jesus said: “Get thee hence, Satan“. Thus he didn´t only quote the Scriptures, but he also commanded Satan away. What effect did that have? Let’s read verse 11:

Then the devil leaveth him…

Notice that the devil didn’t leave when Jesus quoted the Scriptures in verse 4 and 7. So then, shall we quote the Scriptures or not? Oh yes, certainly we shall. God’s word is a powerful weapon. But we need to realize that we have a mission to command, i.e. to use the authority that has been given to us.

Finally, there is a difference in how we command evil spirits and how we command the devil himself. Evil spirits, we command away and we also bind them. The devil on the other hand shall be bound by an angel before the beginning of the thousand years, so we command him away without binding him.
