God intends for the Body of Christ to police the evil forces
of this world. We are to change circumstances to line up with
God’s will and put Satan under our feet through the power of
God. We are to spoil his plans, plots and maneuvers against
The prayer of binding and loosing halts Satan’s activities.
Matthew 12:29 says, “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.” You
have authority over Satan (Luke 10:19). You exercise it with
the prayer of binding and loosing. “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” (Matthew 18:18).
As you enforce the authority vested in the Church, speak
directly to Satan. Exercise your faith in Jesus’ work at Calvary.
When Jesus was raised from the dead, He stripped Satan of his
authority over mankind. That authority has been delegated to
the Body of Christ in the earth. Bind Satan in the Name of Jesus.
Many times Gloria and I add a paragraph to our agreement
prayer: “Satan, we bind you and render you helpless in this
situation. As a matter of record, you are hereby bound in the
Name of Jesus.” From then on, we thank God that Satan is
bound and unable to work in the situation. We refuse to give
him any place.
The ultimate choice is yours whether or not to receive from
God. Jesus asked the man at the pool of Bethesda, “Wilt thou be
made whole?” (John 5:6). His attitude is still the same: “Do you
want to stay the way you are, or do you want to be made whole?”
The choice is yours. God has already provided the way out for you.
Do not give Satan any place by talking about the problem
after you have agreed and bound him. Instead of talking the
problem, talk the answer—God’s Word.
Then loose the angelic forces of God to see that it comes
to pass. Hebrews 1:13-14 describes the angels as ministering
spirits, sent to minister for them who shall be heirs of
salvation. They are messengers sent to work in our behalf.
Say: “Ministering spirits, I loose you in the Name of Jesus to
minister in my behalf according to the will of God.”
