The Need to Bind And Loose


By Dr. Richard Ing

Just a reminder to all true Christians - we are in a spiritual war!  "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."  Eph. 6:12.  The many problems confronting the church and the world today are demonic in origin.  No man can solve and dissolve them.  Only God's true worshippers can.

We are being held captive by the kingdom of darkness and need to bind up Satan's strong men or princes (rulers over Satan's principalities), demonic powers and rulers of the darkness of this world.  We need to pray and bind up Babylonian spirits of Jezebel, Ahab, infant sacrifice (abortions), sexual uncleanness, homosexuality, drugs, lies and deception, witchcraft, death, to name a few.  "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."  Mt. 12:29. 

"I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."  Mt. 16:18-19; 18:18.  Pray to bind up Satan's strong men and loose the captives. 

Whatever is happening on earth is the result of what is taking place in the mid-heavens where Satan and his strong men and powers operate.  Eph. 2:2.  Satan is the prince of the power of the air, but he will soon fall when the true church and army of God begin to fight back.  Michael and his angels will move against Satan's kingdom because of the prayers of the saints.  Rev. 12:9.  Meanwhile, Satan is still going before the throne of God to accuse the brethren day and night.  Rev. 12:10; Job 1:6; 2:2.

The church is in chains today because they resist knowledge.  Hosea 4:6.  Hardly anyone is preaching and teaching "all the counsel of God."  Ac. 20:27.  Instead, most pick and choose to teach only the portions of the Bible that please men and excuse their lack of knowledge and spiritual power.  They leave out sin, repentance, spiritual warfare, divine healing, holiness and integrity.  They make up new doctrines and give sermons that tickle the ear.  Ti. 4:1-3. 

We are weak spiritually and lack power because we have rejected the Holy Spirit.  "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. . . ."  Mk. 16:17.  "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."  2 Ti. 3:5.  "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."  2 Ti. 3:7.

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."  Rev. 18:4.  We need to stop idolizing our church and its leaders and start to look to Jesus and the whole Bible.  I don't mean that we are to submit to no one.  We do need to submit to righteous authority; but we need to receive all the counsel of God - the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  Get out of the religious system that has Christians bound all over the world.  Look for pastors and teachers that give the whole counsel of God, who teach all of the Bible, including casting out of devils, healing the sick and raising the dead.  Go back to the early church and its purity, truth and power.  Do not let powerless men make excuses for their lack of power by claiming that the Holy Spirit went back to heaven or that only the early apostles were given power from heaven.  It's a lie!  Everything that the early church did is possible today.  The Holy Spirit is still ministering on earth.

Satan's kingdom of demons is real.  I have personally been involved in hundreds of deliverances (casting out of demons), miraculous healings and miracles, and have both heard and seen angels and evil spirits many times.  (Yes, it was not me, but God who did all of these things by the power of the Holy Spirit.)  I even wrote two books, Spiritual Warfare and Waging Spiritual Warfare, which are national best-sellers and also translated into Spanish.  Please refer to them to learn about how to fight against Satan and his kingdom.  This is not a commercial for my books.  There are many other books on the subject as well. 

God is calling His great army right now.  Joel 2:11; Rev. 12:5; Rev. 14:1-5; Rev. 19:11-21.  Do you hear the trumpet blowing?  Will you join?  I pray that God will open your eyes of understanding before it is too late.  God have mercy on us!
