THEME: Dealing With Demon-Possessed People
SCRIPTURE:And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things that that of Abel. Hebrews 12:24
Not everybody you see walking around is normal. Many are possessed by demons. Some people are addicted to fornication, some are obsessed with material things, some spend time in places where demons operate, like nightclubs and so on.
Such people are very likely to be demon-possessed. There are ways in which you can know if someone is demon-possessed. However, the best way to ascertain whether someone is demon-possessed is by the gift of discerning of spirits. In any case, if you suspect that somebody is demon-possessed and you have to do anything with the fellow, then you need to cover yourself in the blood of Jesus always.
The blood of Jesus marks you as untouchable to forces of darkness. By covering yourself in the blood of Jesus, you are affirming that you belong to Him and therefore, demons should stay away from you. This can also go for your property. You can cover all your possessions with the blood of Jesus and then tell the devil not to go near them.
If for example, you have a staff who you suspect is demon-possessed and the fellow has refused to surrender his/her life to Christ, in order to ensure that demons don’t have any influence over your business, then you must always plead the blood of Jesus over it.
In Exodus 12:13, God told the Israelites: “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
Whatever is covered in the blood of Jesus is too hot for demons to touch. Cover everything connected to you – including your children, with the blood of Jesus. You don’t know the kind of friends they will meet and play with in school or even the kind of teacher that would be teaching them.
Open Heavens 31 October 2022 Prayer Point:
I cover myself, my loved ones and all that concerns me with the blood of Jesus.
