Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 233

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 12:56

Scripture:

Ps. 140:10
… let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

(Swedish version: “… let them be cast into the fire; into depths they cannot get out of”)

Comment:

David’s prayer, that the enemy should be cast into fire, will be answered when Jesus returns. Then the devil and his angels will be cast into the lake of fire. They will spend eternity there, and so will all who have not chosen to receive Jesus into their hearts. The question is, what is the most frightening, to be cast into the lake of fire, or to spend eternity together with the devil and his evil spirits!

David also asked for the enemy to be cast into deep pits from which they cannot rise up. His prayer was prophetic, and it is being fulfilled in our time.

The bible talks about a bottomless pit called the abyss. The abyss is a prison for evil spirits, not to be mistaken for hell or the lake of fire. When Jesus confronted the demons in the man with a legion, they begged him not to command them to depart into the abyss.

Luke 8:31 (ESV)
And they begged him not to command them to depart into the abyss.

Evidently, the evil spirits were aware of the abyss, the prison, and that they could be commanded to depart into it. However, Jesus didn’t send them there, but he allowed them to depart into the pigs instead (Luke 8:32).
Why didn’t Jesus send the demons into the abyss? Let’s have a look at a scripture where Jesus said the believer would do greater works than He did. Jesus links that to the time when He sits at the right hand of the Father. That time is now!

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

What is a greater work? We claim the casting of demons into the abyss to be a greater work. Jesus just cast them out, He didn’t render them harmless. We believe the church has received the mission to do that, i.e. render the evil spirits harmless. We do that by commanding them to depart into the abyss, and by binding them there for a time. If we are right in this, the body of Christ has a very important mission to fulfill.
