Scripture reading: Daniel 10:12-14

Have you ever thought about what the offering of the soul is? The offering of the soul is the offering of the mind, the emotions, the will, and the desires. The mind that we have is a mind, not fashioned after the mind of Christ, but fashioned after the mind of our families. We think like our families think, we behave as our families behave, we do the things that our families have been doing for years and years and years. We are a part of a family, part of a people, part of a nation. The spirits that rule over us and our ancestors and caused our ancestors to behave in a certain fashion – warlike, or loving, or whatever way they behaved – it was all organized and accelerated and assisted and abetted by spirits that occupy that family.

We call these spirits “familiar spirits,” because they belong to the family. Familiar spirits are in every family. Because we were born under Adam, we became part of a whole network of familiar spirits who are directly under princes of devils ruling the whole earth. The whole earth is under satanic rule throughout his palities, different areas of rulership. The world is divided into different areas of rulership and satanic government. This truth is made clear in Daniel 10:12-14.

“Then said he to me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.”

In these Scriptures, we get a little insight into the kingdom of Satan. The prince of the kingdom of Persia who withstood the mighty angel Gabriel was not a human prince. Neither are we writing about the physical kingdom of Persia. This kingdom must have spread beyond the boundaries of the physical area called Persia. We understand from this Word in Daniel that Satan has princes that rule within certain areas and these princes have great power.

We need to understand that there are spirits that rule over nations. Each head of government and each government have spirits that rule over it. Each family has spirits that rule in the family. When we turn to God the power of the ruling spirits is broken and we become free from their rule over us. The spirits may harass us, hinder us, or even oppress us, depending on where we are in the Spirit, but cannot rule over us anymore. As believers we have “power…over all the power of the enemy” according to Luke 10:19. This is the reason the Lord told us through the apostle Paul to pray for the leaders of our country (1 Timothy 2:1-2) because we can disrupt the work of devils in our nation.

Nevertheless, Christians do revert into submitting themselves under these spirits, and then they become bound. For instance, some Christians go back and put themselves under national spirits, becoming nationalistic and sectarian in their approach to God. The true servant of God should never be sectarian, whether it be to your nation or to your family, but should be ready and willing to be a part of what God is doing in the earth.

1 Peter 2:9 says that we are “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation.” Christians belong to the new family of God. There is a tie, a covenant (Ephesians 2:12-22) through the Blood of Jesus Christ, to those who are under the Blood of Jesus in the church. The church is made up of the called-out people. Believers are called out according to families. The Scripture describes it as tribes. There is a calling from God and as we follow the calling of God, we break the bands and the bondage of the spirits that bind our families and bind us as individuals. We keep on breaking these bands until we become absolutely free in Christ Jesus when the fullness has come.

Scripture reading: II Corinthians 10:3-6

We are now in the time when the devil will have his day; when the “man of sin” must come to his full (666); and the Christ to His fullness in a people who must grow “to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ref. Ephesians 4:13). We now pray, “Thank you, Lord, that the Kingdom is now coming within us.”

We know definitely that the deliverance is coming; it is coming WITHIN us. God is bringing to pass His holy Word. We are seeing it manifested through His people, right here in our congregations. God is fulfilling His word to us concerning our children. It may take trials and tribulations, and the travailing of a family, but as the Church travails she shall bring forth:

“For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children” (Isaiah 66:8).

Get your house in order! Get things straightened in your minds and in your hearts! Make up your mind who you will serve. Make up your mind that you are going to follow God and his righteousness. For the hour is come when the Lord is bringing first cleansing to the church. 

How do you think we are going to rebuke the devils of hell if we ourselves have devils? We must get rid of familiar spirits. One time a brother from Germany preached and as he did, we could see that he was hitting at familiar spirits that have no boundaries. He was talking about the Prussian spirits, but the influence of the principalities and powers in the satanic realm spread their power over the whole world. Each person can speak of his or her own area and we will discover that all the nations (no matter what country we are from) exhibit the same tarnish of soul and demonic bondages. The Holy Ghost, however, is given of God to indwell our spirits so that these strongholds in our soul (our mind, emotions, will, and desires) can be broken and cast out, that Christ may reign within.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, April 1997, pg. 24-25)

Thought for today: Make up your mind that you are going to follow God and His righteousness and by the power of God pull down the strongholds in your soul.
