The first time I began to understand
demonic activities and our authority
over them in Christ was the day my
dad took me out as a little boy to go
pray for a certain man who was being
harassed by demons.
When we got there, the man had
evacuated his own house with his entire
family out of fear.
According to him, they always heard
footsteps around the house, mocking
audible voices, sometimes suddenly the
glass windows would crack and break,
and many of such disturbing occurrences.
My dad walked around the compound
speaking in tongues and I followed behind.
When he was done going around the
compound, he walked to the gate and
spoke out loudly something like
"Now you all leave in Jesus name and don't
dare step into this place henceforth.
I have left my footprint as a mark for you
You have been forbidden from crossing it."
That was the end of that nonsense in that
man's house from that day on.
But thank God for our superiority over Satan
and his demons which we have in Christ forever!
I had just planted a new church in this
While engaging in my regular one on one,
house to house evangelism, I met this woman
who was selling stuff right in front of her
After sharing the gospel with her,
she asked if I could pray for her daughter.
She took me in and explained that her
daughter had a mental condition that had
troubled them for many years.
She would be normal until when she would
begin to see a human figure
(invisible to everyone else) that would
eventually enter into her and immediately
she would become temporarily crazy
(it used to last a few hours but it continued
to increase to days and sometimes weeks)
.... until it leaves again, for a while.
I explained to them that if she would
believe the gospel and get saved,
everything would cease.
I invited them to the new church we were
just starting and Patience (the lady who
had this condition) began to attend.
One Wednesday, while I was teaching
with about 12 people in attendance that
evening, I began to perceive a very
(Oh, I didn't mention that Patience's mum
had told me that although only Patience
could see the figure as it approached her,
they noticed everyone else around her
could perceive that foul smell, just before
she went bonkers)
Yeah, so while I was teaching that day,
I began to percieve that horrible smell,
and not long after, Patience suddenly got up,
lifted her seat like a possessed maniac
and chased off everyone in the Bible study
we were having!
Her form seemed to change all of a sudden
and her voice became husky and terrifying.
While I stood there wondering what was
happening, she turned to me and charged
in my direction like a gorilla coming to attack
Before I could think of anything else,
I lifted up my voice and yelled
"Get out of her in Jesus name!"
Then the most amazing thing happened.
She stopped in her tracks, opened her
mouth and a male voice spoke up and
said, "Leave me alone, I am not coming
I became bold. Full of the Spirit.
And I replied. "I said you come out of her
right this moment in Jesus name!"
She let out a loud scream and fell to the
She woke up about 10 mins later and was
That evil thing never repeated itself.
By scripture and by experience, I know
that spirits are real and that Jesus gave
His Church the highest authority possible
in heaven and on earth.
We have authority over all wicked spirits in
We must keep exercising our dominion over
them anywhere we sense their presence.
Thank you Jesus!

Many times after we come to Christ, we are
bombarded with the details of where we
need to go with our new life in Christ.
So we get on the train headed for the
destination we must arrive at.
While this is exhilarating and so much fun,
and important for us to focus on, we are
not bombarded with the processes that
get us there.
So after a while on the train to a place
that seems too faraway, most of us give
up or decide to chart another path.
What if I told you that beyond the
destination, the height at which we arrive
there is important.
Take for instance flying, while I am not a pilot,
I do understand that while setting the
coordinates to the destination is important,
setting the altitude for the flight is how
the pilot avoids obstacles on the path to
For the believer, the mind is the altitude by
which we fly to our destination.
To ensure we are not bogged down by facts,
we must elevate our minds and thinking
pattern for the journey to become.
This is necessary because God's ways and
thoughts are different from ours and to excel
on a journey with Him, we have need to
renew our minds in by His Word.
The absolute truth is if our minds get upgraded,
the rest of us will follow.
The gist is God wants us to elevate our thinking
to be able to follow Him.
Let us not live trying to get to God's place
for us with the thought patterns of the past.
It is time to change how we think.
Where to start?
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is
true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—if anything is
excellent or praiseworthy—think about
