Chapter 8

We will win the war against evil

(The name of the one evil being has three names, Lucifer, Satan, and the devil. These three names are used interchangeably in this chapter and all name the one evil being.)

There was a war in heaven.  God Almighty won and sent the losers to live in the earth.  The leader of the revolt against God's Almighty status was the angel Lucifer, Isaiah refers to him as the brightest star in the heavenly kingdom, and when he was expelled from heaven to live in the earth, a third of the host of angels left with him and they all became fallen angels living in the earth.

Angels are created by God and are thereby full of God's creative matter.  Lucifer, whose usual names are Satan or the devil, still leads the revolt, backed up by the fallen angels who left with him, but he is in the earth.  God Almighty still has all the power and creative force. (When the term "in the earth" is used it implies the world in its entirety as seen from outer space. The world includes under the earth surface, on the earth surface and above the earth surface. When the term "on the earth" is used it implies only contact with the earth surface.)

Satan wants to be God Almighty, and like God he too wants to create, so he seems to have used parts of himself and the other angels to manufacture the demon force that he then sent out to hurt mankind.

Satan is angry because he recognised that when he lost the war in heaven and was sent into the earth his days were numbered.  He is fighting to keep mankind under his influence and power.  He is fighting God Almighty through mankind by thwarting God's plan for the purity of God's creation.         

Mankind was supposed to live in the garden of Eden and be pure, but Satan corrupted Adam and Eve and they disobeyed God's one limitation on their freedom.  (Most of God's creation is limited by the need to eat to survive; in the Garden of Eden that was not a problem for Adam and Eve.)

After Adam and Eve disobeyed God, by eating from the tree of knowledge, they knew the difference between good and evil, and God then made them work to get their food and shelter.  This limited the time that Satan could corrupt them.  They were no longer able to live in the Garden of Eden and have God supply their every need.

It was the snake that was persuaded by Satan to talk Adam and Eve into disobeying God.  Satan did it himself but through the snake and he found that mankind was easily corrupted.

Mankind multiplied upon the face of the earth, while inside the earth Satan/the devil manufactured his demons and then the earth opened up and his demons poured out.  They were sent to corrupt mankind only.  Not the plants and not the animals; mankind only!

I assume that Satan made some of these demons from himself and now he is not beautiful.  (His legs are like an animal so he must have used some of himself.)  The fallen angels must have been very beautiful inside as well as outside when they fell from heaven, but now they have fangs and hate inside of them, they have lost their beauty, and I think that the part that they have lost has been made into demons. Satan does not hold the creative force of life.  He has used parts of the God force created in him and the fallen angels by God when God made them, to manufacture the demons.

This means that when demons are sent to that place that God has assigned them, they go because God created the angels that the demons are made of, and God has the power to send the demons to wherever He wants to send them. Everything bows to God Almighty the Creator of Heaven and Earth and everything.

In Jude 6 it refers to God's power and will: "The angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgement of the great day."

The fallen angels go there when we assign them in God's name and the demons go there also because they are made of angel stuff. In a way the fallen angels and Satan/the devil multiplied their existence by using parts of them-selves for the demon force.  But it is still a finite amount that can be made because they do not have the power to create, only make using God's creative matter.

We need to pray the Lord's Prayer being careful to ask that God's will be done
IN the earth.; (not only ON the earth as we have recently changed the wording in the Lord's prayer), so that Satan etc. is being bound to do God's will in the earth where he was sent to exist.  Then in the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God who vanquished the devil here on earth, we command that the demons etc. that are afflicting the earth be sent to that place that God has assigned them to await God's final judgement (as in Jude 6) AND WE WIN.

Satan has a limited supply of creative matter because he and the other angels were a finite number.  God is not limited in His ability to deal with the demons.  There is a place to hold all of them.  Do not be fooled, there is a lot of them.  It is a big job.

Another location of the creative matter of God is in mankind.  Adam, the prototype of mankind, sinned and by doing so he opened up the human body to give access to the devil and his demons.  Once inside of man the demons persuade humanity to ignore God Almighty and do the will of the devil. Mankind is persuaded not forced and this free will offering of the body to do the will of the devil opens up the person to be afflicted by demons. At the afflicted person's death the devil comes and takes what is "the devil's own". When a person is in the devil's grasp it takes free will and a lot of effort to free oneself from the devil. At the death of a servant of the devil, the devil will painfully make demons from the body of humans, and he does it painfully so that the demons and what is left of the man (ghost) is so afraid of the devil that they will avoid meeting up with him again, and the demons will do whatever the devil commands them to do. They will forever do the will of the devil in order to avoid the pain that he will punish them with if they disobey him. The willing sin of mankind gives to the devil the creative force of God Almighty that is in mankind. At the death of the evil person the devil uses the body to create an increase in the demons that afflict mankind in mind, body and soul.

Jesus Christ the Son of God in fact came and told us and showed us how to take the earth and our life back out of the devil's/Satan's grasp.  He gave us the power in his name to defeat the devil. It is because of the perfect life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the Son of God that the tenacious hold that the devil has on us is loosened, and we have to use our free will to resist the devil and do that which is right in the sight of the Lord God Almighty.

Before Jesus Christ the Son of God there was none that cast out demons in the name of God Almighty.  It appears that children cast out demons in the name of God and that was acceptable.  As Jesus said of children "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you. That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."  The innocence of children gives their prayers a special place before God and when they, in their innocence, cast out demons God grants their requests and moves the demons out.  The angels who watch the children have a faster access to God than the angels who watch adults.  When God grants a request it happens!

Jesus Christ the Son of God has a special relationship with God Almighty which became apparent at his transfiguration and baptism, when God in a voice from Heaven said, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased / hear ye him."  But the devil tormented Jesus Christ the Son of God when Jesus was alone in the wilderness.  Adam and Eve were tempted by the devil and decided to sin, and mankind had slid easily into sin since that time.  Jesus Christ the Son of God did not fall for the devil's tricks and he, as a man, as well as the Son of God resisted the devil and won the battle. The devil was defeated on earth as he was defeated in Heaven. The devil no longer has the right to walk the earth as the victor over the people of the earth.  The devil has now lost, and as the victor, Jesus has then given us people the right to use his name to move the devil out of situations.

We cannot move the devil out of situation in our own names as the seven sons of Sceva found out. Acts 19:13-16. They tried to move evil spirits out in the name of "Jesus who Paul preaches" and the evil spirits answered "Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?"  It goes on to say, "And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded." The men were trying to be clever in their own name by name dropping of names that the evil spirits knew.  But the names only have power if they are backed up by belief in God being with Jesus Christ the Son of God, and that Paul is referring to Jesus Christ the Son of God.  Jesus cast out demons in the name of God.  Jesus Christ repeatedly said that he cast out demons in the name of God, and at his death he sent the Holy Spirit to be with us and he also gave us the power to cast out evil spirits in his (Jesus) victorious name. (We have to be careful to specify the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God because there are two "Jesus" in the Bible, see Colossians 4:11. Although fellow Christians know which Jesus we mean the demons will use the Biblical fact of two Jesus' in the Bible, to lie their way out of obeying the command to move them.  The name of "Jesus" and "Jesus Christ" is further confused by christening people with the name Jesus or Jesus Christ as is the practice in some countries.)

The way that Jesus Christ the Son of God cast out demons was not like the way that children cast out demons.  Jesus accepted his position as the Son of God and used his Father's authority to take command of the situation and move evil out.  The children moved demons out by prayer to God who grants their request because He is their Father and He loves them.  They were children and naturally loved by God.  Jesus was an adult and loved by God as the Son of God and as an adult he did God's will to cleanse the world of evil.

In John 17:4 Jesus says "I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."  The relationship between God and Jesus Christ was established before Jesus was born.  In John 17:7-8 it says "Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  For I have given into them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou hast sent me."

Jesus Christ the Son of God gave us words, sent by God, to establish God Almighty's kingdom upon the earth.  These words were full of loving kindness and extolled the virtue of loving God and loving each other, with righteousness being our goal in all things.  Jesus also gave us the use of his name, backed up by his victory over evil, having defeated the devil here on earth.

The presence of Jesus Christ the Son of God in our life and his full name spoken aloud in a forceful direct command is enough to send the devils hoards of demons to that place that God has assigned them to await God's final eternal judgement.  If that is where we send them

The name of Jesus Christ the Son of God, spoken aloud, is the name above all names.  His victory over evil assures us of victory in his name over the evil that walks the earth.  In Jesus Christ the Son of God's name we command all evil to go to where God has assigned it in Jude 6, and we make sure that we pray that God's will is done IN earth as it is in heaven (in the Lord's prayer) and Satan is being prayed into doing the will of God.

As we fight the good fight, we are winning!

If we are good and righteous and do not allow the devil and his demons to live in us the devil will have nothing in us.  At our death God sends angels to guide us safely into heaven.

The devil/Satan expected to lose the battle on earth as he lost the battle in heaven.  When he left heaven he took a lot of power and creation with him but that was all he had to work with and he knows it.  His army of multifarious demons are a parody of God's creations, and are set against mankind to destroy mankind.  There are a limited number of evil beings that can be formed by the devil and the devil knows it.  But making more demons from the souls of evil human beings has increased the devil's hordes; however  sending the evil being to that place that God has assigned it is final and rids the earth of  that evil.

The devil seems to be working us all towards mass destruction with nuclear bombs and chemicals in the air, land, and water making the earth uninhabitable for mankind.  I do not know what his plan is but it does not seem very hopeful for mankind.  At this time the devil and his demons are destroying the earth one person at a time and he might be planning to destroy us all in one fell swoop.  The only deterrent from that logic is that it defeats his possible desire to rule mankind and make us servants.  If we are all dead there is no one to serve him. On the other hand if he gets us all to be evil then when we die in one fell swoop, he gets to make his demons from our evil bodies and more demons become his servants. No wonder weapons of mass destruction are so easy to make.  It is imperative that we pray the Lords prayer that God's will is done in the devil/Satan's domain IN the earth as it is in heaven.  In the last century we have changed that one little word from IN to ON in the Lord's Prayer (in the prayer book) and we have stopped our prayer to control Satan and the other fallen angels that are in, on, and above the earth.  It seems that for a while we lost the knowledge of where the devil was sent to reside.  He lives IN the earth NOT ONLY ON IT.  If the devil or his hordes are seen on the earth God would deals with them there and then. The evil that does walk the earth has many names and their power is varied. They all hide from God, some in the earth, others in people and things.  Fallen angels have the power to hide themselves from God's angels here on earth. I am happy to say that I do not know the extent of the power of fallen angels, nor am I interested.  I do know that Jesus vanquished the devil here on earth and in the victorious name of Jesus Christ the Son of God all of the beings that have aligned themselves with the devil or serve him are also vanquished.  Jesus Christ the Son of God is now Lord of All, and all creation is subject to his victorious name.

The demon evil does hide from God on the earth.  In Revelations 9 it says that the earth opened up and there arose a smoke "and there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them were given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power." They were sent by the devil to afflict mankind with their scorpion power.  Jesus Christ cursed a fig tree and it withered and died within a day, it did not want to live when it was under a curse.  When Jesus sent the evil spirits from the lunatic into the herds of swine, the swine raced off and threw themselves over a cliff to die rather than live with the demons inside of them.  We humans seem to be made of different stuff and are willing to live with the demons. The fact is we have got so used to their affliction that we do not know what it is like to be without them.

We are beguiled by the serpent devil into believing that we are using our free will to choose sickness because we are told that sickness, pain and suffering are an intrinsic part of the human experience.  Jesus came so that we might have life more abundantly and that does not include sickness and suffering.  Demons are sent to afflict us and that is what they do.  The affliction of demons is forced onto us because they do the will of the devil. The demons do not have free will themselves and they do not respect our free will.

Adam and Eve were given free will. We all have free will and what was meant to be our strength has become our weakness, when we, like Adam and Eve, choose to follow the bad advice of the devil.  However, all is not lost, because it is a choice.  When we choose to do or live wrongly demons move into our body, but we can also choose to cast them out of our body. Demons move into us of their own accord, they are sent by the devil to afflict mankind and they do not wait for our permission to be in our body.  The body rejects them and we become aware of them when we get acute or chronic pain and sickness, or our mental faculties are altered.

It is because God respects His gift to us of free will, that demons find a hiding place from God's face in our bodies.  God blots out our sins from His face because he loves us and wants us to have the best chance at choosing to become righteous and good.  Part of our choice is to cast out demons from ourselves.  Although the command works for fallen angels and demons most of the afflictions of pain are from demons, (fallen angels are much more malicious, they affect the mind and the pain they afflict is greater than that of a demon.)  Demons are a factor in creating an environment for illness in our body.  Casting demons out does not heal the body beyond the normal rate of healing.  If we want a miracle healing we have to pray to God or Jesus Christ the Son of God for it, and then leave it with them to do it.  (Have faith but it is not unwise to keep on praying to keep your own faith up, and keep in conversation up with God).  If you have cast out demons and keep than out then healing will occur slowly or miraculously according to if you have prayed for a miracle.  We have free will to do whatever we want.

I think most of us are very glad that we have free will, but it comes with the responsibility to keep ourselves from sin and from becoming a hiding place for the demons to hide from God.  Most of the time we only know that a demon has been in us when it leaves and we feel different.  The great thing is that every time we send demons (in the names of God) to that place that God has assigned them to await God's final judgement, we are winning the war against evil.  We are not just moving them out to re-afflict us at another time, or to afflict others, they are going and are gone for ever.  God has prepared a place for them and it is not the same domain that we live in

Jesus showed us how to rid ourselves and others from evil.  Without his presence we would be bereft, alone to face the oppressor.  With the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God we command the evil and we get a recognition response.  With Jesus Christ the Son of God in our heart we get a recognition response from the demons not only of the name but also of Jesus Christ being in our life and that we have faith in his power.  We are aware that the battle is already won.  Jesus Christ the Son of God is Lord of All. Amen


Our physical and spiritual action in the deliverance.

For myself; I stand in the air that circles the globe and I say into that air the powerful names of God Almighty, Jesus Christ the Son of God, and God the Holy Spirit.  Everything in heaven and earth has contact with that air and all know, from every realm that they are subject to the names of God Almighty.  When I proclaim the names I am saying that I know that all beings, including myself, are subject to the names of God Almighty and if anyone has forgotten that they are subject to God Almighty they had better remember pretty quickly because the All powerful God Almighty is not to be forgotten.

As Deuteronomy 7:9,10 states:

Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God the faithful God which keepeth covenant and mercy with those that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them, he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

These two verses leave us in no doubt whatsoever as to who God Almighty is.  They also leave me in no doubt whatsoever that God will do the punishment, not Jesus, not the Holy Spirit, not me, but God Almighty.  Jesus did not kill demons he cast them out.  We do not know if at that point, once exposed, the demons were put in a place to hold them until God has the time to judge them and repay them to their face.  I expect that Jesus had many angels around him and the demons were dealt with by them.  There is a place that God keeps evil to wait for his judgement. It is written about in 11Peter 2:4 and Jude 6.

11 Peter 2:4

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment...

Jude 6

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

This place to send demons was known to the Jewish community and Peter and Jude wrote about it.  This is the place that I believe we should send demons to wait for God Almighty's personal judgment.

I would not send demons to the fire to be destroyed by the devil, because the devil will simply recycle them and the evil will not be stopped in the world it would simply be different.  I would not send demons to dry places because that is of this world and they can come back, as they did in the story that Jesus told.  In the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God I send them to where they are in everlasting chains under darkness until the judgment of the great day. At that time God Almighty will judge them  Once they are there they will never be a problem on the living earth to mankind nor beast again. 

(For your convenience the following section has been added before the last paragraph of Chapter 8.)

Added to the fact that the earth and the sky belongs to God Almighty is the redemption of the whole world by the willingness of Jesus Christ to be crucified.  The purity of Jesus Christ meant that he was worthy to be the Lamb of God.  As the lamb goes to the slaughter so went Jesus to be sacrificed as a atonement for the sins of the whole world. Jesus knew what he was doing. In John 12:31-32 Jesus said. 

"Now if the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." 

Redemption of the whole earth came about by the slaughter of the Lamb of God above the earth.  Jesus noted that the air above the earth was important.  When Jesus died in the air and the blood and water (salt water) from his body fell to the earth it was at that point that the whole earth and sky became sanctified and holy; as in the Jewish tradition of the sanctification of the Temple through the sacrifice of the lamb. Jesus Christ the Son of God overcame the world as we know it and the spiritual realm.  Now all heaven and earth are subject to his name.

Now I stand in the air that circles the globe and say the all powerful name of Jesus Christ the Son of God I know that all powers in the whole earth and sky are subject even to the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God, because Jesus told us this in Matthew 28:18.  All beings in the heaven and earth are to do the will of Jesus Christ the Son of God.  All beings on earth or in the sky that are doing the will of the devil are trespassing on that which is holy, namely the earth and the sky that is now sanctified and holy through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The devil and all that labour under him are now trespassing and, as law breakers, they are not freely walking the earth but are hiding as terrorists, with the intent to do evil in the world. The devil and all that labour under him know that they are trespassing, but they also know that most of us do not know the magnitude of the mighty gift that Jesus gave to the world. Simply the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God spoken aloud into the air has authority to cause the evil beings to listen.  When we mark the devils in the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God with the mark that says "I am captured by Jesus Christ the Son of God," they are indelibly marked. When we give them a command to leave and go to await God's judgment, as indicated in Jude 6 (quoted to them), they know that they are trespassers and caught and they obey. 

  For myself; I stand in the air that circles the globe and I say into that air the powerful names of God Almighty, Jesus Christ the Son of God, and God the Holy Spirit.  Everything in heaven and earth has contact with that air and all know, from every realm that they are subject to the names of God Almighty.  When I proclaim the names I am saying that I know that all beings, including myself, are subject to the names of God Almighty and if anyone has forgotten that they are subject to God Almighty they had better remember pretty quickly because the All powerful God Almighty is not to be forgotten.

Our job is a little one.  Have faith in God. Have faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God who vanquished the devil, and have faith in the Holy Spirit. When God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are in our life and heart, we can be sure that they will be doing the major part of the work of deliverance from evil spirits.  All we have to do is keep the faith in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and speak the words that commit the devil and his hordes to await God's judgment.  God does not expect mankind to do more that they are capable of but God needs to know that we do not want evil to afflict our life or the lives of those around us.  Adam (in Adam and Eve) freely bent his will to accept the advice of the Devil, so our free will has to actively oppose the devil. Whilst ever we accept evil in any of its forms as part of our life we are using our free will to accept evil. It is when we make our will known to God by casting out the devil/demons that God steps in to help us.  Our choice is to cast demons out and when we send them to a place where they cannot harm any person or beast again, then we are winning the war against evil.
