 • Miracles happen when we want to set people free from bondages, curses and strongholds.

What is the nature of the gospel and the Good News? Jesus did not come to introduce further religious rituals to the people. Jesus came to introduce people to a personal relationship with God and set people free from satanic influence. Jesus’ mission statement is written in Luke 4:16-21. Jesus was anointed to preach the Good News to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, release the oppressed, and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

All of the works of Jesus required encountering and overcoming the power of darkness over people. Satan has kept people in bondage through lies and deceptions. God has commissioned every believer to go into battle and set people free. God has given us power and authority over the works of Satan on earth. The abundant life that Jesus promised is not for the select few but for everyone. We need to help people to know the truth of the Word of God and pray for Jesus to deliver them from Satan’s influence.

Scripture references: Luke 4:16-21, Mark 9:17-29, John 8:42-47, John 8:31-32, John 10:10, Acts 16:16-18, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6,

Ephesians 6:10-18 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.(P) 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
