AN IMPORTANT INVITATION

 

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY AND PRAY SINCERELY OVER IT.  IT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT INVITATION YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED OR WILL RECEIVE.

 

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN A WORLDWIDE PRAYER NETWORK FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF BINDING SATAN'S STRONG MEN AROUND THE WORLD.

 

THE TEXT BELOW IS LENGTHY BUT CRAFTED TO CAREFULLY OUTLINE THE BASIS OF OUR INVITATION TO YOU.

 

 IT IS VITAL THAT WE DO NOT MISS GOD'S WILL FOR US IN THIS HOUR.  WE MAY NEVER HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE.

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Evil and deception is everywhere, and the earth is in deep spiritual darkness.  The end of the world is near and tribulation and destruction are around the corner. 

 

But God has a plan and purpose for you and me and for His church.

 

GOD'S PLAN AND PURPOSE

 

From the beginning, God desired to have perfect sons and daughters conformed to the image of His Son, Jesus.  "For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren."  Ro. 8:29.  (All underlining is mine in this document.)

 

Ephesians 4:11-15 says, "And He gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning, craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ."  God's desires will be fulfilled.

 

A PERFECT CHURCH

 

Secondly, the Lord God wanted a perfect church that will become the Bride of Christ.  Ephesians 5:25-27 states:  "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."  The apostle Paul says that this is a mystery - how the church is called to be a perfect bride for Christ.  Eph. 5:32; Rev. 19:7-9; Rev. 21:2; Rev. 22:17.  These two desires and purposes will come to pass whether we are in it or not.

 

TRIBULATION IS GOD'S METHOD TO PERFECT THE SAINTS

 

God perfects His sons and daughters through trials, chastening, scourging, temptations and tests.  Heb. 12:6-8.  "For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.  If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?   But if ye be without chastisement, then are ye bastards, and not sons."  "My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience."  Ja. 1:2-3. 

 

The apostle Peter states: "Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."  1 Pet. 1:6-7.  "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God."  Ro. 8:18:19.

 

The coming tribulation will be the granddaddy of all chastening, trials and temptations,  -allowed by God as the final tests to sift and separate the tares from the wheat, the chaff from the good grain, the goats from the sheep, the dross from the gold.

 

TRIBULATION AND REVIVAL WILL COME TOGETHER

 

Revival/harvest and tribulation go hand in hand.  During troubling times people seek answers and are led to the Lord Jesus.  Insecurity opens hearts.   In modern times, mainland China and the Middle East serve as examples.  The more intense the persecution, the quicker the church grows.  The coming revival/harvest will be accompanied by ever-increasing persecution and troubles. 

 

 A VISION

 

On an airplane on the way to the Philippines in September of 2009, I suddenly had a vision two hours before landing.  I saw planet earth like a softball in front of me.  There was lightning and I heard thunder in the heavens to my left.  Angels flew back and forth to earth - like streaks of light.  The globe was covered in thick darkness, but here and there I saw tiny pinpricks of light that grew steadily.  The darkness slowly gave way to light, like an early morning dawn.  Suddenly, the light went out and darkness enveloped the earth once more.

 

I knew in my spirit that there was a great battle going on between the forces of evil and God's angels.  A worldwide revival/harvest is coming, but will be very brief and the world will soon fall back into darkness.  I asked, "Lord, why have a revival and harvest when most will fall back into darkness?"  The Lord answered, "Judgment.  No one will be able to say that they didn't know."

 

I asked, "What are you going to do?"  He replied, "You will not be able to conceive or understand what I am about to do.  Just obey."

 

MOST CHRISTIANS WILL FALL AWAY FROM THE FAITH

 

Jesus said that at the end of the world, there will be so much deception that "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."  Mt. 24:24.  Multitudes will fall away from the faith.  2 Th. 2:3.   

 

Many Christians are waiting for the Dome on the Mount in Jerusalem (where the temple of God is located) to be taken back from the Muslims so that antichrist can sit on the throne in the very temple of God.  "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."  2 Th. 2:3, 4.  But the man of sin, the son of perdition, already sits in the temple of God, which is our physical body.  1 Co. 6:9; 2 Co. 6:16.  On the day when everyone must either renounce Jesus and take the mark of the beast, or be killed (Rev. 13:15), the world will know who sits on the throne in your heart - the spirit of the first Adam, the man of sin, or the Last Adam, Jesus Christ.

 

The church is already in deep deception and apostasy.  The New International Version of the Bible uses the word "rebellion," and The Amplified Bible uses the word "apostasy" instead of "falling away."  Apostasy means to turn away from one's original beliefs.  Modern day churches are nowhere close to the first century church in doctrines, practices and structure.

 

BUT GOD WILL HAVE A REMNANT OF OVERCOMERS.

 

In every generation, God has always had a remnant of true believers that held to the truth and refused to compromise God's word.  The remnant were rejected by the rest of the church, persecuted and shunned.  Many were martyred.  At the end of the world, God will have a true remnant of overcomers.  They will overcome the devil, the world and the flesh.  Rev. 12:11.   They will know their God and do exploits.  Da. 11:32.  They are spoken of in Revelation, Chapters 2 and 3, and in Revelation 12 ("he who overcometh").  A true church made up of children of light will shine like the sun.  Out of her will come a man-child army that will be taken up to the throne of God to escape the dragon.  That army will stand with the Lamb of God on the mount Sion (Rev. 14:1-5) and follow Him wherever He goes.  Rev. 14:4.  They will come back to earth with Jesus on white horses to destroy all evil on earth.  Rev. 19:11-21.  They are God's army of people redeemed from the earth - morning stars of perfected sons and daughters.  Joel 2:1-11; Rev. 2:28.

 

 

THE TRUE CHURCH

 

"For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil."  1 Jn. 3:8.  The Lord Jesus cast out devils, healed the sick, raised the dead, saved souls and did miracles.  He came to do the will of the Father.  When He returned to heaven, He gave the church the responsibility of completing the task that He started.  The church is the only representative and agent of the Lord on earth.  It exists for the purpose of doing the works of God and by so doing, establish the kingdom of God on earth.  "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."  Jn. 14:12.  What works did Jesus do when He was on earth in the flesh?  He cast out devils, healed the sick, raised the dead, saved souls and did miracles.  Everything that He did was directed at taking back territory from the kingdom of darkness.  When He left, the apostles continued His work.  The church was birthed in firepower from on high.  God's true end-time church will do the same.

 

That is why the Lord Jesus Christ sent us His Holy Spirit to dwell in us.  When He walked the earth, Jesus did all His miracles by and through the power of the Holy Ghost.  That same Holy Ghost now lives in all born-again Christians to enable them to do the same works and more.  "And these signs shall follow them that believe; in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."  Mk. 16:17-18. 

 

OUR GOAL

 

Our goal is to help bring about revival/harvest in obedience to God's will, by standing together with as many churches all over the world, as possible, to battle against the powers of darkness through united prayer to bind up Satan's strong men that control the earth. 

           

We know that revival/harvest cannot come until Satan's strong men are bound and souls loosed from their grasp.  Jesus is waiting for His church to agree with and obey Him. 

 

JESUS IS NOT COMING BACK UNTIL ALL OF HIS ENEMIES ARE DESTROYED

 

Many Christians are fasting and praying for revival/harvest.  We too have fasted and prayed diligently for years without lasting results.  That is because we have not understood that Jesus will not come back until His church confronts the demonic kingdom and defeats His enemies.

 

Jesus is going to sit at the right hand of the Father in heaven until all His enemies are made His footstool (defeated and destroyed).  "But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; from henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool."  Heb. 10:12.  "The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make Thine enemies Thy footstool."  Mt. 22:44.  Also, Mk. 12:36; Lk. 20:42.  "For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thy foes thy footstool."  Ac. 2:34; 1 Co. 15:24-26.

 

The expression, "make thy foes thy footstool" or to "put your enemies under your feet," means to defeat and destroy your enemies.  Jos. 10:24-25; Ps. 8:6; Ps.18:38.  We are the feet of Him.  Na. 1:15; Is. 52:7; Ro. 10:15.

 

God is calling His church to defeat His enemies and put them under the feet of Him.  He is a God of armies.  His name is the "Lord of Hosts," mentioned over 282 times in the Bible.  The word "hosts" means armies.  The church is called to be an army and every saint a soldier for Jesus.  2 Ti. 2:3-4.

 

THE CHURCH'S GREATEST GLORY AND RESPONSIBILITY

 

The great Christian writer, Watchman Nee, in his book entitled The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation, says that "... for this age to be terminated, the children of God must bear witness to the gospel of the kingdom anew."  Pg. 153.  "The kingdom is in direct opposition to Hades.  The Lord Jesus declares that the kingdom is the casting out of demons ...."  Pg. 154.  "Consequently, the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom is nothing less than to declare that God who rules in heaven today shall tomorrow rule the earth by casting out completely the prince of today's world with all his followers and evil spirits so that the new man (Christ) shall reign instead."  Pg. 155.

 

"The gospel of the kingdom of the heavens is thus directed against the powers of darkness. . .  To this end was the Son of God manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.  1 Jn. 3:8."  Nee then outlines how Jesus cast out devils and healed the sick in opposition to Satan's kingdom.  Pg. 156.  He then states, "We must proclaim the gospel of the kingdom of the heavens - which is the gospel of the casting out of demons, the gospel of announcing the defeat of Satan and the destruction of Hades.  And such testimony will bring this age to its end."  Pg. 157.

 

Nee concludes:  "God is looking for a people who sympathize with Him and work with Him in concluding this age and ushering in the next.  If Christians view as their greatest responsibility on earth the saving of people for their souls, then they have failed to accomplish the highest will of God.   They ought to realize that they have a responsibility even greater than the saving of souls: that they are to bring this age to an end and bring in the kingdom of God.  Their highest responsibility is to witness the destruction of God's archenemy Satan and all his powers of darkness.  They ought to view this as the chief objective of all their works."  Pg. 157.  Nee says that he does not demean the work of evangelism, which is very important and a glorious task, but we cannot lose sight of the kingdom.  Pg. 157.  Nee, Watchman, The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation, Christian Fellowship Publishers, Inc., NY, NY 1980.

 

 

 

WE ARE IN A WAR

 

We are in a deadly, invisible war against an enemy determined to destroy all churches and kill every Christian.  If a physician makes a wrong diagnosis, he cannot heal the patient.  The same is true with an automobile mechanic or anyone trying to solve a problem.  If we ignore or are unaware of the true source of a problem, we can never solve that problem.  The Bible says, "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 real source of most of our problems on earth is the demonic kingdom and its evil workers.

           

We can never bring about revival/harvest and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ without confronting and warring against the demonic kingdom of Satan.  Until we put the axe to the root, the corrupt tree and its fruits can never be destroyed.  We are only cutting off the branches and leaves.  Violence, wars, murder, hatred, bitterness, anger, revenge, witchcraft, greed, poverty, suicide, drug addiction, homosexuality, etc., are all works of demons influencing and controlling human minds.  Until these demons are confronted, bound up and cast out, they will continue to control the minds and hearts of men everywhere.

 

SATAN IS THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD

 

Jesus said that Satan is the present ruler of this world.  Jn. 12:31; Jn. 14:30; Jn. 16:11.  He controls the affairs of men through his princes or strong men that rule over the earth.  Until we battle against Satan's strong men, bind them up and loose the captives, we cannot bring about revival/harvest and the end of this age. 

 

BINDING AND LOOSING SATAN'S STRONG MEN

 

So how do we confront and battle against Satan's strong men?  First, Jesus said, "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; Mk. 3:27; Lk. 11:21-22. We cannot free the captives until we first bind up the strong men that control and manipulate mankind.  Satan has assigned various strong men over every area of the world - over nations, cities, groups, families, churches, and individuals.

 

Deliverance ministers will tell you that you cannot cast out devils without first binding up the strong man that is in control.  Jesus said to Peter, "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. 16:19.  This statement has nothing to do with church administration as some writers claim.  It has to do with warring against the kingdom of darkness by binding Satan's strong men and loosing the captives.  The same statement is made in Matthew 18:18 with no reference to the church or its administration.  It has everything to do with binding up spirits in the mid-heavens while on earth. 

 

Satan is the prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2) and he and his strong men rule from the atmosphere around the earth.  This power to bind Satan's princes is mentioned in Psalm 149:6-9: "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all His saints.  Praise the Lord."

 

From small to big, young to old, every saint has the honor and power to bind up Satan's rulers.

 

Once the strong men are bound, we are able to loose the captives.  In the spirit realm, Satan's demons bind up their victims with chains and bands.  We plunder the strong man's house by loosing the captives.  In Luke 13:11-13, we find the following episode:  "And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.  And when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.  And He laid His hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God."

 

When criticized by the Pharisees for healing the woman on a sabbath day, Jesus replied, "And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?"  Lk. 13:16.  We need to loose the captives after binding up the strong men.

 

Once, I was praying over a pastor and binding up the spirit of rejection and fear.  Suddenly, I had a vision of the pastor completely bound by straps that looked like the dark, brown metal straps used to wrap wooden barrels.  I commanded the spirits to leave and I loosed the straps from off the pastor.  The straps fell to the ground and I instantly had a vision of a large open park. I was looking down from above the trees.  A man was holding a huge bunch of brightly-colored balloons, like you would see at a carnival.  When the bands fell from off the pastor, the balloons were released and floated high in the air.  The pastor was freed.

 

WHAT STRONG MEN?

 

How can one determine who the strong men are?  First, you look at the fruits - what is going on in the area.  Is there violence? witchcraft, poverty, crime?  Second, you look to the history of the area.  Some places were known for their witchcraft or for the deaths of many, as in a battle field.  Some were places of torture and heinous crimes, and so forth.  Third, you can sometimes discern the spirits.  You just know that you know what spirits are operating in the area.  Fornication, homosexuality and drug trafficking may be hidden from view, but prevalent.  Fourth, pray and ask God.  He will just speak and reveal things, often through a word of knowledge, vision or dream.

 

WE MUST UNITE!

 

Satan's strong men are too powerful for just one person or a few persons or churches to bind them up.  It will take many churches praying together in order to bring about worldwide revival.  God has provided a way for His people to gain tremendous spiritual power - unity.

 

Unity brings an incredible increase in spiritual power.  It is a principle that applies even to the heathen.  In Genesis 11, the people had one language and were united.  They planned to build a tower to reach heaven (tower of Babel).  "And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language, and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."  Gen. 11:6.  The Lord came down and gave them many different languages so that they could not communicate with one another and they lost their power.

 

In Deuteronomy 32:30, the scriptures speak about how one can chase a thousand and two can chase ten thousand together.  Power is increased ten-fold every time another person is added to prayer.  Think of how much power can be generated if churches all over the world begin to pray together to bind up Satan's strong men.

 

Matthew 18:19-20 says, "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in my name,  there am I in the midst of them."  I have many stories where two or three saints prayed together and miracles took place.  Unity is so important that God promises that where there is unity, He will command the blessing, even life for evermore.  Ps. 133:1-3. 

 

It is said that the power of the godhead rests in its unity.  "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."  1 Jn. 5:7.   The Word, of course, is the Lord Jesus.  Rev. 19:13. 

 

"And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and these three agree in one."  1 Jn. 5:8.  The water is the Word of God.  Eph. 5:26 (washing of water by the word).  Pray the blood of Jesus and the word of God and the Holy Spirit comes.  He cannot help Himself because He agrees.  That is why we always pray the word or the scriptures in spiritual warfare and deliverance.  Every demon trembles at mention of the blood of Jesus.  The Holy Spirit comes to give power whenever we pray the blood and the living word. 

 

It is time for the people of God to unite against the demonic kingdom.

 

OUR EXPERIENCES

 

The above is not just an untested theory.  In the early 1990's I began to travel to Fiji, to a church called Every House for Christ - Fiji, at the time.  The head pastor was Ptr. Suliasi Kurulo.  I taught spiritual warfare there six years in a row and probably learned as much from the people there as they learned from me.  The students at their Bible college in Labasa began to get up early in the morning to pray together and bind up the strong men over Labasa.  Soon, the campus became known for its miracles.  People passing by on the bus would be healed.  Some would jump off the bus and come running into the Bible college weeping and asking for someone to pray for their salvation.  It was Azusa Street all over again.  Angels were often seen in broad daylight.  I have video tapes of angelic visitations and holy laughter.  Angels would appear during my class sessions and at the airport.  Many were healed and delivered.  In 1996, a full-blown revival swept through Fiji.  You can read more about it on the internet.

 

Around 1995, I began traveling to Sibu, Sarawak.  I taught the people at the Full Gospel church there for four years straight.  After my third trip, the students at the Bible college there (about twenty of them) began to pray together to bind up the strong men over Sibu.  After a few weeks, the Lord informed them that the strong men were bound.  They then went house-to-house to preach the gospel.  In two weeks, they converted 2,000.  It had taken Ptr. Sam Seong (now with the Lord) twenty-six years to build his church to 3,000 and only two weeks to add 2,000 more.  They ran out of room and had to stop.  When I returned a year later, I dedicated a ten-acre parcel of land to build a bigger church.

 

My small church is located in an industrial area and around 1996, we decided to go to a residential area in Honolulu called Salt Lake to claim it for God.  The high school there was having problems with gangs, a math teacher was punched and fights in the parking lot were almost daily events.  After Sunday morning services, our members would travel to Salt Lake and pray to bind up the strong men there.  After a number of months, an article appeared in the local newspaper announcing that the four churches in the Salt Lake area were filled to capacity and no one knew why.  The gang activities at the high school stopped, a Bible club was established and the school cafeteria was rented by a large local church for its Sunday services.

 

HOW TO PRAY

 

Before you can bind up Satan's strong men, or any demon for that matter, you first need to take away their rights to harass, oppress, suppress or occupy.  These rights are usually curses caused by sins (especially rebellion) or unforgiveness (there are other curses or rights given to Satan).  Therefore, confession of sins and repentance are absolutely necessary before you can successfully bind Satan's strong men and loose the captives. 

 

DANIEL'S PRAYER

 

Daniel's prayer of confession, repentance and breaking of curses is found in Daniel, Chapter Nine.  For your convenience, we have attached a sample prayer based on Daniel 9:1-11.  Before you can bind, some time must first be devoted to confession, repentance and breaking of curses.  A sample of Daniel's Prayer is found below.

 

The key scripture used to break curses is found in Galatians 3:13: "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree."  

 

PLEASE JOIN US IN A WORLDWIDE PRAYER NETWORK

 

We lovingly invite you and your church to join with other Christians and churches around the world to pray together in unity to confront Satan's strong men over every area of the world and to bind them up and loose the captives.  As you bind up strong men over other cities besides yours, churches around the world will be praying to bind the strong men over your area. 

 

We provide sample prayers below.  These samples are just guides.  Obey and follow the Holy Spirit and then expect revival.  Be aware, however, that when revival comes, persecution and tribulation will follow.  It is ordained by God and explained in the Bible.  Mt. 24:14-15. 

 

AN IMPORTANT PRAYER OF PROTECTION - PSALM 91

 

God will not leave us unprotected against counterattack by Satan.  About six years ago, the wife of  my associate pastor shared in church that she could not find her check book starting the previous Friday morning.  She normally put it at the top of her purse.  She emptied her purse several times and her husband also emptied it several times.  It was nowhere to be found.   They turned their house and car inside out but did not find it.  She cancelled her bank account.  That Sunday morning, she opened her purse to make a cash offering and found the missing check book at the very top of her purse.

 

A few months later, my wife and I went to the office of our local health insurance company to cancel our policy.  The accounts officer asked for my Medicare card which I always kept  in my wallet.  I emptied my wallet on his desk and found nothing.  My wife emptied it also.  No card.  "Well," the officer said, "you have until two in the afternoon tomorrow (Saturday) because our office closes at two."  I was leaving for the Philippines on Sunday and would have to pay another month's premium if I could not present my card.  Next morning, I went to my office and needed to call someone.  I took my wallet out to look for his business card and lo and behold! my Medicare card was at the very front of my wallet.  I was puzzled.

 

Yet a few months later, I went to a membership store with my wife.  As was our custom, I stayed in the car to pray for one hour.  My wife does not like me following her around like a puppy dog, telling her what not to buy.  After an hour, I then go into the store to help her pack the groceries.  I searched my wallet at least four times and could not find my membership card.  The next day, I opened my wallet and the card was at the front of my wallet.  I then decided to clear my desk and found a paperback book at the bottom of a pile of papers.  The book was given to me five years previous by a member and even had a date on it.  It spoke of avoiding counterattacks by Satan and there was a chapter entitled PSALM 91.  I began to realize that all of the above events had been to teach me to pray daily for protection against the devil by asking God to hide me, my family and members under His wings and cover us with His feathers so the enemy cannot find us and counterattack.

 

I began to teach about Psalm 91 and quoted the book in newsletters and sermons.  About a year ago, I got lazy and had not prayed Psalm 91 for a few weeks.  I forgot.  At that time, I window crank about four inches long fell out and I could not find the connecting screw.  I put it on my dinner table intending to take it to a hardware store next day.  When I returned, it was gone.  I searched all over the house and cleared the table at least three times every day for ten days.  On the tenth day, my wife and I were packing our suit cases to go to the Philippines.  For three days, my wife could not find her passport.  Both of us looked all over the house.  It was Saturday afternoon and we were to leave at 5 a.m. next morning.  We were in a panic.  If we didn't find her passport, I would have to go by myself for three weeks of mission work.  My second son came to the house at 6 p.m. to bring us dinner.  He knew we were too busy to cook.  My wife was in tears as she related to my son about her lost passport.  My son walked right into our bedroom and looked on the bed stand next to my wife's side of the bed.   There it was.  In ten seconds, he had found it.  We were perplexed because both of us had looked there at least six or seven times and found nothing.

 

Then I walked to my dining room to have dinner.  Sitting right in front of me, on the table, was the window crank that had been missing for ten days.  Mind you, I ate all my meals and read my newspaper at that table every day.  The area where I sit is only about two feet by two feet in area.  I knew then that God was reminding me to pray for protection.  I repented and began to pray Psalm 91 fervently. 

 

There's a strange end to this story.  A few months ago, I wanted to preach on Psalm 91 again and quote the book on that subject.  I took it out and began searching for the chapter entitled PSALM 91.  There was none.  The read the book from cover to cover five times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating.  In fact, the entire book mentioned Psalm 91 just once and only to mention how "He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in  all thy ways."  There was nothing more.  God put that chapter in so that I could understand what He was trying to tell me, then He took it out.

 

Our God can do anything.  He can make things appear and disappear at His pleasure.  He is all-knowing and all-powerful.  We have an awesome God!  Please pray Psalm 91 daily.

 

AGREE WITH GOD

 

We don't have to agree on every bit of doctrine and practice.  All we have to do is pray together and agree with God.  Very few churches agree completely on doctrine and practice any way.  It's hard to get even all of your own members to agree on everything.  But it should not stop us from obeying God and working together to usher in the millennium age.

 

We are not trying to create anything for ourselves.  We don't even want credit for it.  We are not seeking fame, fortune or any reward.  We just want to obey God by agreeing with Him and His plans and purposes.  Our desire is for revival/harvest, the end of Satan's reign on earth, and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We want to help establish God's kingdom on earth and do the works that God has called us to do. 

 

You don't even have to join us.  You can create your own prayer network.  You can get other churches to pray with your church.  The main thing is to unite against the powers of darkness and to bind up Satan's strong men.

 

NO FEES OR DUES

 

There are no fees, dues or other charges for joining.  Just pray.

DANIEL‘S PRAYER (SHORT VERSION)

 

FATHER, WE COME TO YOU IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

 

1.  WE HUMBLY CONFESS AND REPENT OF OUR SINS, FOR WE HAVE REBELLED AGAINST YOU AND HAVE DISOBEYED YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

 

2.  WE HAVE COMMITTED SINS OF IDOLATRY, WITCHCRAFT, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, THEFT, LYING, GREED, PRIDE, MURDER, ADULTERY, DISHONORING OUR PARENTS, UNBELIEF, LACK OF LOVE, AND COUNTLESS OTHER SINS AGAINST YOU, O LORD.

 

3.  BECAUSE OF OUR SINS, CURSES HAVE COME UPON THE LAND AND YOUR PEOPLE.  Daniel 9:1-19.

 

4.  WE ARE DECEIVED, WEAK, CARNAL AND DIVIDED.  WE HAVE NO LOVE.   WE HAVE FAILED TO DO YOUR WILL.  SATAN HAS US BOUND.

 

5.  WE HUMBLY PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS FOR OUR SINS, OUR TRANSGRESSIONS AND INIQUITIES, O LORD.  WE HAVE NO RIGHTEOUS-NESS OF OUR OWN, BUT WE COME IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GRACE.  HAVE MERCY ON US, O GOD.

 

6.  BREAK THE CURSES THAT CAME UPON US BECAUSE OF OUR SINS, O LORD.   Gal. 3:13.  WE ARE NOT WORTHY, BUT YOU ARE FULL OF GRACE AND MERCY, O GOD.  FORGIVE YOUR CHILDREN.

 

7.  WE BIND UP THE RULER SPIRITS SATAN HAS SET OVER OUR LAND AND PEOPLE AND WE CUT OFF THEIR CORDS AND DRY UP THEIR WATERS, IN JESUS’ NAME.  Mt. 16:19; Mt. 18:18; Jer. 50:38; Jer. 51:36; Ps. 129:4.

 

8.  WE LOOSE THE SOULS OF MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND TAKE AWAY THE BLINDNESS OF THEIR MINDS.  2 Co. 4:4.

 

9.  HIDE US UNDER YOUR WINGS AND COVER US WITH YOUR FEATHERS, O LORD.  Ps. 91:4.   IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY.  AMEN.

 

 


BINDING UP SATAN’S STRONG MEN AND POWER WALKING

 

Satan has appointed strong men or ruler spirits over every area of the world – over countries, cities, areas, neighborhoods, families, churches, organizations and individuals.  They rule from the mid-heavens or atmosphere around the earth, sometimes called the high places.  Mountain tops can also be high places.  Eph. 6:12.  That’s why Satan is called the Prince of the power of the air.  Eph. 2:2.  Jesus taught us that before we can spoil a strong man’s house, we must first bind up the strong man.  Mt. 12:29.  God also have us the power and authority to bind up Satan’s ruler spirits.  Mt. 16:19; Mt. 18:18; Ps. 149:8.  In order to set the people free from bondage, we need to bind up Satan’s strong men and then loose the captives. 

 

Determine who the strong men over your area are:  (1) by looking at the history of the place in terms of evil or tragic activities such as widespread witchcraft, killings, etc.; (2) by looking at the current fruits (you know them by their fruits); (3) through discernment; and (4) by direct revelation from God.  Examples of strong men:  witchcraft, idolatry, murder and violence, poverty, sexual uncleanness, antichrist, homosexuality, fornication, mind control, death, rejection, rebellion, Jezebel and Ahab, greed, warring spirits, etc.

 

Satan’s strong men are his strongest spirits.  It may take at least seven churches praying in unity to bind up the strongest ones, although the churches don’t have to be physically gathered together.  Unity or agreement brings power.  Mt. 18:19, 20; 1 Jn. 5:7-8; De. 32:30; Ps. 133.  There are several ways of binding up Satan’s strong men:  1.  Someone takes the lead and prays out loud.  The group repeats after him/her out loud.  For example:

 

“In the name of Jesus . . . .” 

Group repeats, “In the name of Jesus. . . .” 

“I come against the spirit of witchcraft.” 

Group repeats, “I come against the spirit of witchcraft.”

“I bind you up in Jesus’ name.”

            Group repeats, “I bind you up in Jesus’ name.”

Etc.

 

2.  The leader prays to bind up Satan’s strong men and the group agrees by exclaiming out loud, “Yes.”  “Allelluia!”  “I agree.”  “Amen.” 

 

POWER WALKING

 

Power walking can be useful.  Assign certain areas of the city to groups of Christians.  Their job is to walk the area quietly without drawing attention to themselves, and bind up the strong men or ruler spirits over that area through prayer.  They should also claim each house or business for the kingdom of God and each person living in the house or working in the building for Jesus Christ.  Some have also used oil that has been blessed and dabbing a little of it on buildings and pouring the anointed oil on the four corners of intersections while praying and claiming that intersection for Jesus Christ.   Demons will flee.

 

Always protect yourself by praying Ps. 91: “Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask that you hide us under your wings and cover us with your feathers so that Satan cannot find and attack us.  Please teach us how to abide under your shadow.”


 

 

FURTHER EXAMPLE OF A PRAYER TO BIND AND LOOSE

 

Daniel confessed and repented for the sins of the people in Daniel 9:1-19.  He did not say, "The people have sinned."  He said, "We have sinned."  He identified with the sins of the people as a true intercessor.  In verse 11, he acknowledged that curses had come down upon the people because of their rebellion.  Those curses need to be broken before one can bind Satan's strong men.

 

At the outset, some time must be spent in confessing and repenting for the sins of the people and asking God to break every curse that came down upon the people and the area.  When God shows you that the sins have been forgiven and the curses broken, it is time to bind up Satan's strong men.

 

IN THE NAME OF JESUS OF NAZARETH, I DECLARE WAR AGAINST THE RULERS OF DARKNESS OF THIS EARTH OPERATING  IN ___________________ AND THE STRONG MEN OVER _____________ THAT ARE CONTROLLING THE PEOPLE THERE. 

 

I COMMAND SATAN'S STRONG MEN TO PAY ATTENTION.  I DO NOT COME AS A MAN, BUT FROM THE VERY THRONE OF GOD AND BY THE NAME OF JESUS. 

 

JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW, BEING MADE A CURSE FOR US, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, CURSED IS EVERY ONE THAT HANGETH FROM A TREE.  BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, I BREAK EVERY CURSE OVER THE PEOPLE IN ____________________.  I DECLARE EVERY CURSE BROKEN BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

 

I COME AGAINST THE STRONG MAN OF _________________, IN JESUS' NAME.  LISTEN SPIRITS, GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD.  JESUS CHRIST SPOILED PRINCIPALITIES AND MADE A SHOW OF THEM OPENLY, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT. 

 

SATAN IS DEFEATED.  YOU ARE A DEFEATED ENEMY. 

 

LISTEN TO THE WORD OF GOD.  JESUS SAID THAT WHATSOEVER I BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN AND WHATSOEVER I LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.

 

BY THE POWER OF GOD, I BIND YOU UP HAND AND FOOT.  I TAKE CHAINS FROM HEAVEN AND I BIND YOU UP.  I PUT A GAG IN YOUR MOUTH.

 

I TAKE THE SWORD OF THE LORD AND I CUT OFF YOUR CORDS (PS. 129:4).   I DRY UP YOUR WATERS IN JESUS' NAME (JER. 50:38; JER. 51:36).  YOU ARE BOUND IN JESUS' NAME.  YOU ARE DEFEATED.  I CLAIM THE BLOOD OF JESUS TO COVER _________________.  I CLAIM ____________________ FOR THE KINGDOM OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

 

I LOOSE THE SOULS AND BODIES OF THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE BOUND.  I SET THE CAPTIVES FREE IN JESUS' NAME.   I BREAK THE CHAINS AND BANDS YOU HAVE PLACED OVER AND AROUND THEM.  I TAKE BACK THE PIECES OF THEIR SOULS THAT YOU HAVE STOLEN.  EZE. 13:18-21.

 

I COME AGAINST THE STRONG MAN OF ________________________.  (REPEAT THE ABOVE AND BIND THE NEXT STRONG MAN UP.

 

I BIND UP EVERY SPIRIT THAT IS BLINDING THE MINDS OF THEM THAT BELIEVE NOT AND IS RESISTING THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION.  2 CO. 4:4.  YOU ARE BOUND IN JESUS' NAME.  I LOOSE THE BLINDERS FROM OFF THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE, IN JESUS' NAME.

 

IT IS POSSIBLE ALSO TO COMBINE THE NAMES OF THE STRONG MEN.  "I COME AGAINST WITCHCRAFT, JEZEBEL AND AHAB AND THE SPIRIT OF SEXUAL LUST, ETC."

 

AT THE END, THE FOLLOWING MAY BE PRAYED:  FATHER, IN JESUS, NAME, I ASK THAT YOU SEND YOUR ANGELS AND YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TO GO OUT AND DRAW THE SOULS OF MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN INTO YOUR KINGDOM.  CONVICT SINNERS AND GIVE THEM THE GIFT OF REPENTANCE.

 

THE ABOVE IS ONLY A SAMPLE.  LET THE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDE YOU.

 


** Please note:  We are still in the formative stage and have not completed everything.  We will be putting together a list of places with location, population, spiritual atmosphere and possible strong men. 

 

If you decide to join us, please drop me a line and we'll put your church on our list.

 

God bless you!
