Scripture reading: John 1:5

I was in India one time and, for some reason, I provoked the angel of death. I did not willfully do it; I just started to study about the Hindu god Kali and went into a store that had different images and other things. I said to the man, “I want to know something about this spirit called Kali.” He looked at me. I said, “Yes, do you have any literature here?” He replied, “Well, this is all I have,” and gave me a book. I paid him for it and man alive! The man was a worshipper of Kali! Without knowing it, I had gone directly to the priest of Kali and told him I was against Kali. When I went home, the spirit came in and attacked me. I grappled with him and started to speak, “In the Name of Jesus! I command you to lose your hold!” But it was ineffective. The spirit of God came to me and whispered in my right ear, “The Blood.” That is a different ball game! That is a higher level! You cannot talk to a spirit like this with just the words that might be powerful to some spirits. YOU HAVE TO GET UP THERE WITH HIM!

Brethren, I say it every time I preach to you. Get yourself trained in commanding the Blood of Jesus Christ. If you are not trained, then when you are in battle, you will not be able to remember it. Somehow or the other, the power of the spirit that is before you prevents you from reaching out to the Blood. That is, unless you are already in the Blood; unless you are already moving with the Blood!

You know, one time when I was a young man, God was teaching me the Gospel. I did not go to Bible school. I went to God’s school! As He was teaching me the Gospel, one of the things He taught me was the crucifixion. He said, “Come with Me, and let Me show you the crucifixion.” Have you ever taken your Bible, gone through the whole crucifixion and imagined what all happened there? He took me through the crucifixion and every step of the way I felt the pain, the suffering. I saw them dragging Jesus along. I saw Him with His hands tied and a man spit right in His face. He carried me to the cross, and I saw the Blood!

Do you know what happened, brethren? In India, when this prince of devils attacked me, I began to see the Blood again! My mind went back to the Blood of Jesus Christ. When you do that, you are LIFTED! Immediately, you are lifted into another realm! Yes! I said, “SMITE HIM, Lord!” The Blood smote him right in the middle of his head and he crumbled to the floor!

OH GOD, HELP US TO UNDERSTAND! HELP US, LORD, TO UNDERSTAND!

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the DARKNESS of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

The “DARKNESS…” Do you know what darkness is? It is opposite to light; but the darkness cannot overcome the light (John 1:5). Light overcomes darkness! I want you to understand that. Any time the darkness comes upon you, TURN ON THE LIGHT! Have you ever had a dream where you go to turn on the light, and the light won’t come on? You turn on the bulb, and nothing happens? God wants you to begin to practice to turn on the light! Hallelujah!

God is speaking to many of you. He is saying, “Turn on the light.” In other words, your mind is your eastern gate. And eastern gate is the gate through which God comes in. So many other things are crowding up in that gate, preventing God from coming through. Just begin to repeat the Word of God. Yes! “I am the Lord thy God, that brought thee out of the land of Egypt and out of the house of bondage.” Say, “I will have no other God beside You. You are my God. You are my Savior.” “Deliver me now from this darkness that is coming down upon my soul!” Amen! Begin to talk aloud! Begin to read the Bible. Sometimes your mind is so befuddled that you cannot remember words to say. Get the Bible! Read it!

Psalm 91:5-8, “Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.”
