Topic: THE MIGHTY, THE TERRIBLE, AND THE STRONGMAN (2)
Text: Isaiah 49:24–26, Matthew 12:29
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O. MFM Worldwide)
This is our second series on this special Manna Water Service. Last week, I began to explain to you deep revelations about strange powers that are troubling the destinies of men. We looked at the mighty, the terrible, and the strongman. We read from the book of Isaiah as well.
Isaiah 49:24–26 (KJV): “Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.”
We read this scripture last week to identify the entities known as the might and the terrible.
We also read:
Matthew 12:29 (KJV): “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.”
How to Know When the Mighty and the Terrible Are in Charge.
– When those who are praying with you are being scared away, the mighty and the terrible are in charge of your affairs.
– Your former friends are turning aggressive.
– The enemy all of a sudden, is bringing terrible and life threatening conditions that you did not have before.
– When your helpers are coming under attacks.
– Your life is being baptised by terrible dreams.
– When a person is facing aggressive and terrible spirit wife and spirit husband.
– A person is going from accident to accident.
– When a person keeps seeing dead relatives and ghosts.
– When a person is experiencing chains of bad luck.
– When the enemy is pushing a person towards suicide and moving him towards multiple surgeries.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here today: this “mighty” and “terrible” that the book of Isaiah has identified, if there is any area of your life that they are troubling, with a tenfold Amen, terminate them tonight! in the name of Jesus.
Jesus began in the New Testament to explain these powers and give them their proper names, which if somebody from the Old Testament had heard, he would have been confused.
If a person says somebody is strong, then perhaps he is strong. If the enemy says somebody is strong, the enemy must really be telling the truth. But when God is describing somebody as being strong, then you know that anybody who enters the cage of those powers is in serious issues. Jesus identified them for us; he is called the strong man. The Bible says that he is strong. Jesus revealed that he is strong, meaning that anybody that is under their control, needs serious deliverance to get out of that bondage.
I felt sorry for an 80-year-old woman who had five daughters. The first daughter got married, had four children, and all of a sudden, the husband died. After two months, the daughter died. So all four grandchildren were dumped with her. The second daughter got married, had twins. All of a sudden, the husband also died. Then the lady died too. The twins had to be dumped with her. The same thing happened to four of her children. Now, grandma, at 80, had 12 grandchildren she was looking after. Her husband ran back to the village because he could not cope. What kind of battle was this? It was a strongman eliminating the wives and husbands and packing the battles on the poor woman.
Can somebody who is sufficiently violently angry shout this loud and clear:
🔥 Powers that are saying I will not have peace, wherever you are, die!
This man was desperate to get out of his country to travel abroad. But little did he realise that there is a strongman in their family who says that nobody goes anywhere. He went to see a friend, who took him to a witch doctor. Let me tell the story from the letter he wrote to me. He said, “When my friend took me to the witch doctor, what they told him was that he should go and bring somebody whose destiny they can use for money rituals.” This man was desperate to travel, but the friend that took him there, who had seen his destiny, wanted to use him for money rituals.
“So when I got there, the witch doctor gave me a black soap to use before sleeping. He also gave me powder to rub on every joint in my body. I made the mistake of using the soap for bathing at night, and I slept. When I woke up, I felt as if POP was all over my body. Since that day, I have been battling with stroke, high blood pressure, irregular heart beat, heart palpitations, migraine, heat in the head, serious itching on the head, chest pain, pain all over the body, and something moving about in the head. My friend later told me face-to-face that he wanted to use my destiny for rituals”. It is a strongman who says “That is how far he can go”.
Can you shout this again, loud and clear, in a commanding voice:
🔥 Warehouse of the strongman, release my virtues, by fire! in the name of Jesus.
Who is this strongman? He is the:
– controller over a group of evil spirits.
– Commander in chief of the armed forces of darkness fighting a person.
– Ruling spirit over a group of spirits.
– Power source and dominating power in a situation facing a person.
– Principal demon, a leading principality.
– Key to setting a situation free. If you have not taken the battle to his level and are still fighting some small spirits, the situation will keep reoccurring and remain the same. It is a very serious matter.
One of my fathers in the Lord many years ago was praying and fasting with a man. He had seen that his destiny was great, but the man was not getting anywhere. So they both went on a three-day fast. They were praying every six hours. It is amazing how our ancient fathers in faith used to take up people’s cases and pray through them, including fasting. But this is our generation; may God have mercy on us. In our generation, you will find somebody who calls himself a prophet, and the reason he is calling himself a prophet is to make fake prophecies. So our daddy was praying with this man for 3 days, and they were rounding up on the third day.
They were about to break their fast when all of a sudden God opened the eyes of daddy and he saw a big throne with a huge king sitting on that throne inside the stomach of the man. God said, “Son, you have done three days of fasting and prayer, but you have only chased away the servants; the strong man is still there, as you can see. Do you want to break your fast or do you want to continue?” That is the kind of power the strongman has. He is the key to the solution. Can you raise up your right hand and pray this ancient prayer that we prayed many years ago? It has saved many lives.
🔥 Strongman at the gate of my promised land, what are you waiting for? Die! in the name of Jesus.
The strongman is the:
– Prison warden of the devil. When the devil has locked people up, he is the one in charge to see that people do not get out.
– Main root or the power energising the evil activity.
– Captain of the stronghold.
– king in the power of darkness.
When Jesus said “You shall trample upon serpent and scorpion”, the strong man is the senior serpent and scorpion.
– The evil power assigned to a problem.
When the strongman is assigned to your career, you keep failing in that career. If he is assigned to your academics, that is when you will take an exam and your answer sheets disappear without explanation. A strongman can also be assigned to somebody’s calling as a pastor. I have shared this before. This pastor tried to start a church. The first church he started was doing very well, and he had appointed some elders. But after some time, he found out that those elders were uncontrollable.
So one Sunday service, he came to the pulpit, took the microphone, and mentioned those elders and told them to stand up. He then said, “Beginning from today, I sack you as elders because you are going beyond your boundary, in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.” The elders smiled, took the second microphone, and said, “We reinstate ourselves in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit.” Everybody began to fight in church, and the church was divided into two: some supported the pastor and some supported the elders.
That was the end of the first church. He did not realise that there was a problem. He started another one. This time around, he took people for baptism in water. There was a queue of people waiting to be baptised. The first person he was baptising that day was a pregnant woman. As he put the woman into the water, an unseen force dragged her away, and she drowned. The people on the queue ran away, reported it to the police, and nobody came to church again. He still did not know that there was a problem. He tried a third time.
This third time was very embarrassing. He impregnated his driver’s wife, and that was the end of the third church before he realised that there was a problem. Can you raise up your right hand again and shout the name of the strongman with hatred?
🔥 Strongman saying that I will not go far, die! in the name of Jesus.
🔥Strongman assigned to turn my day to night, you are a liar, die! in the name of Jesus.
🔥 Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Arise, sweep away every power fighting for my glory! in the name of Jesus.
🔥 As I shout “blood of Jesus” seven times, every pollution in my blood, shall disappear! in the name of Jesus.
1. Strongman assigned to my dreams, you are a liar, die! in the name of Jesus.
2. Strongman assigned to my (put what you want), die! in the name of Jesus.
3. Strongman of my father’s house, strongman of my mother’s house, I am not your candidate; therefore, die! in the name of Jesus.
God bless you🙏
