That is the reason for this website to share the Word of God with you so that you will be able to experience the love and power of God’s Word, it will change your life for the good, believe me.
Last week I let you know that I would be teaching on the power of binding and loosing as another scripture in God’s Word that is so powerful.
First of all in order to be able to use this scripture you need to know what the key words mean. So many Christians have no idea what these verses are saying let alone applying them. (See Hosea 4:6 & Isaiah 5:13).
Our text today is Matthew 16:19, Jesus is speaking here, red letter edition, “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.”
Powerful words from our Master.
LUKE 10:19 BEHOLD, I GIVE UNTO YOU POWER TO TREAD ON SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS, AND OVER ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY; (ALL OF THIS IS TALKING ABOUT satan AND DEMONIC BEINGS) AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU.”
You should be convinced by now, I am quoting you the Word of God, it’s in your Bible too.
So now let’s get back to our text for today Matthew 16:17 Whatever you BIND (that word in the original Greek means to fasten, tie or prohibit) on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever you shall LOOSE (that word in the original Greek means to loose any person or thing tied or fastened, to undo) on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
A great man of God gave an account of Jesus appearing to him, while he was talking to Jesus a demonic being kept jumping up and down between them and making a lot of noise. The brother in the Lord asked Jesus aren’t you going to take care of that and Jesus replied, “I can’t.” The brother in the Lord said I must have not heard you right Jesus, I thought you said, “I can’t.” Jesus said that’s right, I can’t because I have given you, the Church, authority on the earth and if you don’t take care of it, it will not be done.
Do you remember that scripture we just looked at that said I have given you the keys of the kingdom. The problem is that most Christians either don’t believe that Word of God or they just have never been taught. In either case, it is a shame.
Listen, Jesus never called you and I to be door mats for satan or demonic beings, never. On the contrary He gives us scripture after scripture that we are to overrun the devil, he is under our feet, right? Well he is.
In fact Jesus said in John 10:10 “THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.” Any way that satan comes against you to kill, steal or destroy from you, you have the command from Jesus to say, “satan I take authority over you in Jesus name and I bind you from (whatever it is he is doing against the Word of God, sickness, poverty, confusion in your household, demonic attacks from other people, weather tearing up your home, etc.) and then also declare what you want done, I loose health to me and my family, financial blessing, peace in your home, peace from other people, calm weather so your home nor crops are destroyed).
Now we don’t have authority over anyone’s will but we can come against demonic activity in them that is coming after you, and as long as what we bind or loose is in God’s Word we can boldly declare it to satan. God’s Word records how we, in this case the Apostle Paul had power over a person that had a demonic spirit of divination. (See Acts 16:11-18, you notice the Apostle Paul did not have authority to override someone’s will but did have authority through our Lord to cast out the evil spirit that was harassing him). This is what I am talking about.
I pastored a church and early in the teaching I taught them Matthew 16:19. One of the members of our church was a farmer. He had a lot of crops. One day he went out on his back porch and saw this terrible storm coming that he knew would destroy his crops, they represented his income. He remembered what the Word of God had said about binding and loosing. He spoke to that storm and bound it from coming into his acreage and loosed calmness in the name of Jesus.
Well he came to church that next Sunday and we had testimony time and he told the story about how his crops were spared and all around him was devastation on other farmers acreage. Our church started shouting the victory, PRAISE GOD ALMIGHTY.
I have used these powerful principles that I share with you for many, many years. I have taught them as a pastor and a traveling evangelist around the United States and in other countries and as people have believed and used the Word of God they have seen the exact results the Bible says you will have.
THE SHAME IS THAT MANY DON’T KNOW THE WORD OF GOD, EVEN CHRISTIANS AND MANY JUST DON’T BELIEVE IT, HOW SAD.
