Stealing is a very serious offense that the Lord speaks very clearly in His Word that He hates: “You shall not steal.” Exodus 20:15 NIV
Stealing even among those who are hungry has the same penalty as anyone that is if he be found he must repay the person sevenfold times what he has stolen.
God does not give a free pass for anyone when it comes to stealing.
And that includes the devil.
In Matthew 12:22-29 we see that Jesus met a demon possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him so that he could talk and see.
The Pharisees did not give the glory of the healing and deliverance to the Lord but instead said it must have been done by the devil.
But Jesus told the Pharisees to look at this healing and deliverance in a different way saying that Jesus had already bound satan and was plundering satan’s goods by freeing this man from demons.
This account shows us the power that Jesus has over satan and that same power has been delegated to you as a Christian: “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Luke 10:19 NIV
Let’s go to Matthew 12:29 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.” Matthew 12:29
In this scripture Jesus spoke about the strong man as being satan and that in order to take back what satan had stolen from the demon possessed man Jesus bound satan and then cast the demons out of him and healed his muteness and blindness.
It is stated in Matthew 12:29 that before all of this deliverance and healing can happen the strong man, satan must be BOUND in order to bring about this deliverance and healing for the man.
Jesus is our example and in order to take back what satan has stolen from you the first thing that must be done is that satan must be bound in the name of Jesus.
Jesus talks about this binding just a few chapters later in the Book of Matthew in Matthew 18:18.
“Verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18
What does BINDING mean from the Greek as spoken in this original text?
The original Greek as used from this original text for this scripture shows that one of the definitions of BIND is: TO FORBID, PROHIBIT AND DECLARE TO BE ILLICIT. (Illicit means to be unlawful or forbidden).
Jesus has told you as a born again Christian that you have power over serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the devil AND whatever you BIND on earth will be BOUND in heaven and what you LOOSE on earth will be LOOSED in heaven.
In the example of Matthew 12:22 Jesus BOUND and cast out the demons and the mute spirit and blindness the man had and then Jesus LOOSED His healing power to make the man whole.
Jesus is saying from the scriptures I already quoted to you that He has given you that power through faith in Jesus and His Word so you can also minister to people in need and bind the strong man (satan) on their behalf or for your behalf and be set free.
However this will never work for you unless you have faith in Jesus name and His Word and then go be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer of the Word of God and just sit by.
“But be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving you own selves.” James 1:22
Of course the faith you need in Jesus name and His Word comes only one way: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Romans 10:17
In other words the more you hear the Word of God by reading it out loud or from teaching or preaching the more your faith will grow.
That is a spiritual fact.
So from our text in Proverbs 6:30-31 NIV first you have to catch satan stealing from you, he will work through other people to do his stealing, that is called deception and that is the way satan operates.
Then Proverbs 6:30 NIV states that you must despise a thief, in this case being satan.
You will never take any action against satan until you come to the point that you despise him and his stealing of things that the Word of God states that they belong to you.
Some Christians would be content with just getting back a one fold return of what the devil has stolen from them, in other words just to get back what was stolen and nothing more.
But Proverbs 6:30-31 NIV states that you have every right to demand that the devil return 7 times what he has stolen from you.
Don’t let satan get away with the other 6 fold return he owes you based on the Word of God.
Why would you take less from satan after he steals from you when you now know that the Word of God says that the devil owes you 7 times what he has stolen from you not 1 time what he has stolen from you?
If you do that you have lost 6 times what you should have had and are just content on getting back a lot less than what the Lord said rightfully belongs to you.
Don’t let the devil rip you off.
When the devil sees that you will not mess around with him and that you know the Word of God and will not take less he will think twice about continuing to steal from you.
The devil hates to have to give back what he has stolen from you but it belongs to you all 7 times what he has originally has stolen from you.
It is like there are 7 one hundred dollar bills on the table and you know the Lord in His Word has said all 7 one hundred dollar bills belong to you but you go over to the table and only take 1 one hundred dollar bill and are content with much less than what the Word of God says belongs to you.
What a shame!
In Luke 13:11 it states: “And behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together (bent over) and could in no wise lift up herself.” Luke 13:11
Jesus stated: “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?” Luke 13:16
Jesus said this woman was bound by satan because of this physical condition of not being able to walk upright and so she was ripped off by the devil.
Yet Jesus said that she had a right to walk upright and be delivered from the power of satan’s physical disability that he had put on her.
Then the woman became whole and walked upright.
What does that tell you, sickness and disease are from the devil and he has no right to STEAL your health from you but you must address the thief being satan and bind him in that area of your life in the name of Jesus and then loose the healing power of God in your life so you can receive your healing.
After all you should never pray that Jesus will heal you as He already has: “But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” Isaiah 53:5 NLT
This scripture is a picture of Calvary’s cross that the Holy Spirit gave a revelation of what would happen at the crucifixion to the prophet Isaiah hundreds of years before it even happened.
Notice the last part of the scripture says: “…He was whipped so we could be HEALED.” Isaiah 53:5 NLT
HEALED is past tense right?
So Jesus took stripes at the crucifixion for you and Jesus now states that since that happened about 2,000 years ago you are already HEALED, past tense. You don’t ever need to pray to Jesus that He would heal you instead you should pray that you now RECEIVE the healing in your body that Jesus has already provided for you when you are praying for healing of your physical body.
Healing is already an established fact in the Word of God.
Healing of sickness and disease is another way that the devil will try to steal from you if you let him.
Next week I will look again into God’s Word regarding the thief satan and his stealing and the weapons that the Lord has given you to: “STOP THE DEVIL FROM STEALING FROM YOU.”

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again.

Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
