Topic: THE POWER BEHIND
Text: 1 John 5:19, Matt 16:21-23, 2 Kings 6:14-17
Ministering: Dr. D.K Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
I believe you brought your anointing oil here. Tonight, we have ten disconnecting prayers to pray. I will explain very soon. You will do well to listen very carefully tonight.
The Bible makes it categorically clear that our world is swimming in the ocean of wicked sharks. The whole world lieth in wickedness. In looking for money, fame, pleasure, power, people have gone deep into wickedness.
Business people have become wicked. Career people have become wicked because they want money, fame, pleasure and power. Everything that the Bible concludes under vanity upon vanity, all is vanity. The whole world lieth in wickedness. The implication of what I am saying tonight is serious.
It means that behind all crisis, turmoil, turbulence, earthquakes, violence, terrorism, wicked activities, kidnapping, rape and everything that is going on, activities of eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood, merciless killings of people, merciless wastage of life, negative situations of life that you see physically, horrible and wicked things that you see, lies an array of very wicked spirits provoking these things, propelling them, encouraging these things to happen.
You may not see those spirits behind if your eyes are not opened. You may say “oh! It is an accident! Oh! It is a stray bullet! Oh! They just scattered the marriage!” But behind, there is an array of malevolent spirits pushing all these strange things and behaviours.
===> I am praying for anyone hearing me tonight, every faceless, unknown, masquerading powers behind any problem you are facing, we bury them by fire in the name of Jesus! (A ten fold Amen).
Evil is sponsored from the spirit realm and then manifests in the physical. So, the rule is very simple. If you contend with the spirits behind the situation, then you stop the problem that it is creating. If you leave that spirit alone and you are just fighting the surface, they are still there causing trouble.
It is a tragedy when you are clearing the cobwebs but you leave the spider untouched. The spider is still there creating the cobwebs. After you have cleared and cleared and cleared, they come back and build up other ones.
===> Once again I am praying here tonight, all the unfriendly friends, fake friends, faceless enemies, unknown antagonists, envious witchcraft assigned against you, shall be buried alive in the name of Jesus!
You might find it difficult to believe but there are spirits that walk on their heads.
===> I am praying for somebody here, any strange spirits assigned against your life, I bury them now in the name of Jesus.
What kind of wicked spirit is this, to come to a crusade walking upside down? We need to begin to see the spirits behind things that are happening. Moses battled the spirits behind all they were doing in Egypt. He battled the gods they were serving until the final one and then they had to let them go.
===> Every power behind any problem you face shall be disgraced tonight in the name of Jesus.
In that second scripture, it was Peter Jesus faced, but He knew there was a spirit behind what Peter was saying. He could see that spirit. So a person could be talking and there is a bad spirit behind him making those utterances against your life.
There could be spirits propelling people to issue curses on you and saying things against your life. This is why I want your Amen to be aggressive seven fold again:
===> Every spirit behind, strategically issuing curses against your life, we kill the curses now in the name of Jesus!
In 2 Kings 6:16, we understand that there are spiritual forces that this servant could not see, backing Elisha up. At the same time, there are spiritual forces which this servant could not see, backing up the enemy. Every enemy has some forces backing them up. All the forces of evil, have forces backing them up.
===> The power base and powers backing up your enemies shall be disgraced tonight in the name of Jesus.
===> I am praying for somebody here, all the spirits of “We have been doing it, and we shall continue to do it to harm you” shall die violently in the name of Jesus.
===> Are you here tonight? The strong man behind all your problems shall receive angelic slap in the name of Jesus!
Here in this third passage, we see Elisha seeing into the spirit realm and seeing the spirits behind those who came to attack him. The Bible tells us categorically that “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. It did not say “may not prevail”. It said “shall not”.
Meaning that the gate of hell is not strong enough to stand up to our direct attack as a church of the Living God and that the church of God must be on the offensive to attack those gates of hell. Why did God give us armour? Why did He give us sword? Why did He give us power over all their powers?
Or did Jesus not say “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over every power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”? Why do we have these great weapons of warfare that are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds?
Is it to keep peace with the enemy? Is it to pacify the enemy? Is it to begin to go into their camps to get things from them? No. It is to fight. To storm the gates of hell and put the devil and his agents to flight. The Bible makes it categorically clear that you can resist the enemy and the enemy will then flee from you.
Meaning that the enemy can be made to flee. Try and understand beloveth that there is much more in existence than that which we can see with our ordinary eyes. If you pick up newspapers or switch on your television set, the horrible things you are seeing there will show you that there are wicked spirits behind evil things going on in our world.
Unfortunately, many churches remain ignorant about the existence of these bad spirits and it is sad. Very very sad that a lot of those who call themselves Christians are even going into the occult to go and look for power to fight their battles.
They are looking for strange men and women to lay hands on them and pray for them. It is unfortunate but it is true, it is lamentable but it is a fact that witchcraft covens are growing fatter and fatter everyday. I can confirm that for you. More people are joining the occult because they claim that God is too slow, whereas God is not slow.
God does not operate microwave power. You have to operate according to His standard. God is not pleased with all these things. It is important that we begin to allow our spiritual eyes to begin to see the spirits behind kidnapping, ritual killings and begin to attack them; not the men carrying out their instructions but the spirits behind them.
When Elisha described to his servants what he was seeing, the servant could count more spirits that were behind Elisha than the enemies. Do you understand what the Bible means when it says “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world”? There is a he that is in the world but there is a He in you. He is greater but you could decide to limit His presence, and power in your life.
There are many people here. Witchcraft, you do not have. Familiar spirit, you do not have. Incantations, you do not understand. Fetish power, you do not understand. Your only power is God. And now you are offending that God by sinning. How will He support you when the time of trouble comes?
Elisha saw the armies of God. We too can see the armies of God behind us. The way the battle goes depend on how we fight it. We are in a strategic position. We can command both sides. The forces of God that are with us; we can put to work and the forces that are on their side, we can dismantle.
===> I am praying for you that brother, I am praying for you that sister, the village witchcraft, the place of birth witchcraft, the environmental witchcraft, your career witchcraft that have been rejoicing over you, they shall be buried tonight in the name of Jesus!
The Bible says “the spirits are subject unto us”.
===> I am praying for somebody here, every hidden wickedness assigned to torment your destiny must be buried tonight in the name of Jesus.
The Bible makes us to understand that we have power over their powers but we must use that power. We must cast cowardice and faithlessness aside. We must cast fear aside. I am going to pray one prayer now:
===> The anointing that will make you a terror to the kingdom of darkness, receive that anointing in the name of Jesus!
You need to exercise that power tonight. Exercise it tonight. The Bible says in Matthew 16:19 – And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
The initiative is from the earth. We bind it here first. It is after you bind it here that heavens will now bind theirs. That is why in Jacob’s ladder, we see angels ascending and descending. The initiative is from the earth. Can you raise up your right hand where you are and shout this after me loud and clear:
===> By the covenant blood of Jesus, I bind every power troubling my destiny in the name of Jesus.
Matthew 18:18 tells us – Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
That is, where we are tonight, we can decide to bind every power of kidnapping in Lagos State, in Nigeria, we can decide to bind all ritualistic around. Whatsoever we bind on earth, heaven will say “they have bound it there, let us bind it here”. There is a binding prayer and there is a loosening prayer.
What does that mean? Certain breakthroughs have been hijacked, and stolen and tied down in the spirit realm. You have the authority to loosen them and release them unto your life.
===> I am praying for somebody here, every rope tying down your achievements, tying down your progress in the spirit realm, let them be loosed in the name of Jesus.
The Bible tells us “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
We are the ones expected to wrestle. We initiate the wrestling match. We do not wait for them to come and start it. That is the power God has given to us which we do not use. We are not fighting people. No. If you hear MFM prayer saying “die”, it is not the person, it means the powers behind. It means “become unavailable”.
There were some spirits like that in the Bible. They begged Jesus “do not send us into the abyss”. They begged Him because once they go there, that is the end of their activities here on earth. So, technically, if Jesus had sent them there, He had killed them. That is the end for them. They cannot act.
We are not fighting people made of flesh and blood but against unseen persons, persons without body, against unseen things, against huge number of bad, wicked, evil spirits. We are fighting principalities, rulers, leaders, executives, chiefs, heads of organisations, masterminds, controllers, strongmen.
There are also some people, they have covenanted their spirits to Satan. Sometimes when they talk to a woman and the woman does not want to agree, they become spirit husband and go attack the woman at night. They are moving their wicked spirit men about.
We are fighting against such powers too. Against their tricks, against their strategies, against their craftiness, against their satanic intelligence, against their skills, their deceitfulness, their devices, and their manipulation.
I want you to really pray here tonight because each of these ten prayers has breakthroughs and testimonies attached.
2 Corinthians 2:11 says – “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” So it is to our advantage to already know who, how many, their individual powers. It is to our advantage to know what they do and to know what areas they attack.
Bottom line of what we are saying tonight before we start praying is that there is a principal force behind every dark work and our battle is with those powers behind them. Those are the forces we battle with. Stop launching your warfare against the fruit, the flower or the work.
If you are successful in those attacks, you may not have touched the main source. Then they will be free to do their work elsewhere. Do not launch your attack against the fruit and the trees but launch it against the root. Battle the strongman behind it and then you get results.
(Sing: I plead the blood, the blood of Jesus; I plead the blood, the blood of Jesus).
(Sing: The resurrection power, work miracles in my life, today, today, work miracles in my life; the resurrection power, work miracles in my life, today, today, work miracles in my life).
1. O God arise and destroy every coffin that has buried my destiny in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers investigating my destiny to make me a slave, die in the name of Jesus.
3. (Grab your oil and anoint your forehead) O God arise, remove death and grave from my family in the name of Jesus.
4. Every curse hiding in my name, die in the name of Jesus.
5. Powers donating my blessings to evil altars, blood of Jesus, kill them now in the name of Jesus.
6. Family battle, family battle, family battle, hear the word of the Lord, expire in the name of Jesus.
7. Every curse assigned to make me and my family suffer, break in the name of Jesus.
8. Angel of death, kill every power that is reducing my testimonies in the name of Jesus.
9. (Anoint your head again) Powers behind my problems, hear the word of the Lord, die in the name of Jesus.
10. Owners of evil load, hear the word of the Lord, carry your load in the name of Jesus.
God bless you!
