TOPIC: This Prince of this World
John 14:30; 16:11; 12:31
Ezekiel 36:25 “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.”
The truth is often bitter. However, it is only the truth that can set you free. A lie may be on the run for 1,000 years, but the truth will overtake it one day. A lady stole a television set and watched it for years. She later noticed that there was no single breakthrough in her home.
Each time she switched on that television, the devil would start to dance because they were watching his property. In the same house, they usually held vigil every last Friday of the month. But, the devil always laughed because of the stolen television and the stolen carpet in the sitting room. So, nothing positive or successful happened.
A songwriter says, “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back.” He says, “The cross before me, the world behind me.” Is the world behind you or at your front? Have you left the shackles of the world behind? For example, if the prince of the world, the devil comes to you now, can he say, “I cannot find anything in this man? I cannot find anything in this woman?” Can he say that about you? Can you be bold like Jesus and say, “The prince of this world cometh but he finds nothing in me.”? This is a very crucial question that every believer has to answer.
The reason why some people are having backache is because they are sleeping on stolen beds. The reason why some people are having stomach ulcer is because they are eating with stolen spoons. Somebody goes to a hotel and when he is checking out, he steals the towels in his room and goes home with them. Now, he says he has skin rashes. The reason is that he is using stolen towels.
Do not allow the prince of this world to catch you and destroy your destiny. Avoid him with perfect hatred, stubborn resistance and unshaken determination.
This is your moment of triumph. Adversity shall soon pass away. Weakness shall soon depart. You shall not faint.
Any power working against your family shall be disgraced.
Hymn – The king of love my shepherd is
1. The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am His,
And He is mine forever.
2. Where streams of living water flow,
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.
3. Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home rejoicing brought me.
4. In death’s dark vale I fear no ill,
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.
5. Thou spread’st a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth:
And O what transport of delight,
From thy pure chalice floweth!
6. And so through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never:
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise,
Within Thy house forever.
– Rev. Sir. Henry W. Baker
1. Every assembly of witchcraft working against me, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every seed of witchcraft in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every dream sponsored by witchcraft, die, in the name of Jesus.
1. Every power troubling my star, die, in the name of Jesus.
2. I declare war on every enchantment, in the name of Jesus.
3. Confidence of the wicked, be broken, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every serpent and scorpion of affliction, die, in the name of Jesus.
