OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2021 THURSDAY: TAKING TERRITORIES

 OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2021 THURSDAY: TAKING TERRITORIES

OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2021 MEMORIZE: Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. Deuteronomy 11:24

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days; but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me…  Daniel 10:13

In the kingdom of darkness, territories are allocated to princes – also called principalities.

Regardless of this, God commands us to dominate the earth (Genesis 1:28).

Thus, as Christians, we are to take charge of any territory we find ourselves in.

It is sad however, that many live in bondage and fear of the devil within their territories. This should not be.

Some have not been succeeding since they moved into a new environment. Don’t be ignorant of the devices of the devil.

Once a demon sees that you are ignorant, it will exploit that loophole and launch continuous attacks.

One of my sons who moved to a new apartment was once confronted by a wizard after his usual praise and prayers.

The wizard threatened to kill him. My son ran to me and I followed him to his house. .

I asked for the direction of the wizard’s house and he pointed it to me.

I stretched my hand towards that direction and decreed a quit notice on the wizard in the name of Jesus.https://3e043be2434aebdf6f8eb359b5dac38e.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

When I turned to leave, my son asked “Daddy, is that all?” I said “YesI have done what I came to do”.

Within seven days, a huge tree in the wizard’s compound dried up and seven days after that, the wizard died.

Ephesians 1:21 says you are seated at the right hand of Christ far above principalities and powers.

If you do not exercise your power in Christ, the devil will make you tremble at his presence.

You don’t beg the devil, you issue decrees.

I must warn you however about what happened to the seven sons of Sceva in Acts 19:13-16.

If you are not standing strong in Christ and decide to face demons saying “As Adeboye taught us in the Open Heavens Devotional, I decree your quit notice in the name of Jesus”, the demon will say “Jesus I know, Adeboye I know, who are you?” God forbid that the devil uses you for food.

Therefore, make sure that there is no sin in your life, ensure that you are a fervent Christian, filled with the Holy Ghost before you face any demon.

You will be victorious, in the mighty name of Jesus.

OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2021 HYMN

STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF CHRIST MY KING

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring:
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

REFRAIN:
Standing, Standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Saviour;
Standing, Standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail
By the living word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

3. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

4. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Saviour as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.
