Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 165

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 14:46

Scripture:

Ps. 101:8 (ESV)
Morning by morning … cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD.

Comment:
David knew the owner of Jerusalem. God is the owner, not the devil. David talks about the city as “the city of the LORD”.

Every city belongs to God.

1 Cor. 10:26
For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.

God did not give away the earth when he gave Adam and Eve the mission to rule it. That means the devil did not get possession of the earth when they fell. He only got the authority to rule, and Jesus has taken it back from him. Now He has given the believers the right and mission to take dominion and rule.

John 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

The word ’power’ in John 1:12 is the Greek word exousia, which means authority. When we receive Jesus as our Savior, we receive the authority to become God’s children. And being God’s children we have the right to rule here on earth.

It’s important to know that God wants us to use the authority, He has given to us.

We must not be deceived by the lie that a community belongs to the devil. We need to proclaim the truth that the community belongs to God. And we also need to use the authority that has been given to us, and cast out the evil spirits who are illegally occupying the community.
