How to Conquer Controlling Powers

Walk After The Spirit

Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh,

God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

The righteousness of the law is “fulfillable”.

How? By walking after the Spirit, by engaging the law of the Spirit of life in battle.

Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh;

but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

It is impossible to be free from the law of sin and death, without the law of the Spirit.

It takes the law of the Spirit to break the law of sin and death, because:

Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead

shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

The Holy Spirit inside you is the way to cheaply disarm the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Paul said even we too do groan for the redemption of our body (verse 23). Your greatest enemy is this body!

But there is help from above. How?

Engage The Spirit

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought...

We can’t see those controlling forces. They are spirits.

So the Holy Ghost now helps our inadequacies in communicating to God on the need of the hour — those motions in your mind, those motions in your body, that need to be dealt with.

We are mortally helpless. But with the help of the Holy Spirit (as we begin to operate the law of the Spirit by making intercessions in the spirit), we are able to disarm the law of sin and death.

We don’t know how to pray as we ought to. “We know not what”, but we have the help of the Spirit, to locate what, disarm what and subdue what.

Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

When you pray according to the will of God, He hears you. So the Spirit helps you to come on the frequency of the will of God, so you can always secure victory.

Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

The Spirit has power to mortify the deeds of the flesh. When they are mortified, the battle is over!

For instance, if you’re fighting someone and he ends up in the mortuary, is the fight still on? When the opposition ends up in the mortuary, the battle is over!

Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh:

and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

To walk in the Spirit means to operate in the Spirit, to engage the Holy Spirit in your earthly walk — to take advantage of His ministry against the works of the flesh.

The spirit is contrary to the flesh, so when you engage the Holy Spirit, you subdue the flesh.

The flesh is contrary to the spirit, it will disarm the spirit if you don’t engage the Holy Spirit.

The Bible says,

Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

So it takes a stronger Spirit to disarm the weaker spirit.

But,

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

When you engage the Holy Spirit in keeping your spiritual goods (your spiritual destiny in God), your goods will be in safety.

The Holy Spirit is the force that guarantees your security in the conflicts of life. Therefore, you must be filled with the Spirit. Don’t be empty!

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.

Jesus was so filled with the Spirit that the flesh had no hold on Him (Luke 4:1-13).

Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;

fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

That means the Holy Spirit has power to put fornication, uncleanliness, inordinate affection, etc, to death.

All that are listed above can be put to death by the Spirit, if you engage the Spirit. Not through tears or cries, no! But “through the Spirit.”

Engage the Spirit. Get into cloud–forming prayers (like Elijah did) in the Spirit.

You know what Paul said in Ephesians 6:18?

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

So you can put these things to death, whether they be habits formed over a long period of time, or controls from hell.

You can through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the flesh.

Do you want to put iniquity far from you? Here is the answer to iniquity, here is the answer to the sin question — the manifestation, the operation, the engagement of the Spirit of God in warfare.

Then, sin will loose its grip on you, and life will lay hold on you, and your life will take on a new meaning altogether!

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I,

whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

When you begin to engage the Holy Spirit in warfare against the flesh, a wind begins to blow, gathering the chaff and binding them up, setting them on unquenchable fire.

That’s a mystery!

The fire of the Holy Ghost establishes God’s judgement against the forces of evil.
Because the prince of this world is judged (John 16:11), the judgement of the devil is now in the hands of the Holy Ghost.

So when you engage the Spirit, you devastate all the forces of hell that are arrayed against your destiny.

The spirit of this world is judged!
The spirit of arrogance is judged!
The lying spirit is judged!

How? By the fire of the Holy Ghost! Because He will gather the chaff, and burn it with unquenchable fire! He will destroy and bring judgement on them!

That motion of the flesh can be consumed. All you need is get set to engage the Spirit, and you will devastate the work of the flesh.

This is the current thing! We are just getting off the charismatic movement into the renewal movement. This will bring us to the harvest time of every revelation we have ever gathered.

God is announcing our harvest season and bringing us to cross our last hurdle, so we can enter into that realm of enviable plenty — plenty of wisdom, strength, intelligence, joy, peace, plenty of everything!

Until the Church of Jesus Christ on earth becomes the envy of the world!
That’s where we’re coming to! It’s a mighty, mighty awakening!

Hallelujah

Amen

How to Conquer Controlling Powers, Part 2

Praying In The Holy Ghost

Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.

Praying in the Holy Ghost is praying in tongues. It builds you up on your faith for holiness.

So your faith for a life of purity is enhanced by praying in the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:

The secrets of men are in their stories. Paul spoke in tongues more than they all, so he enjoyed purity more than they all — he so testified in 1 Thessalonians 2:10:

1 Thessalonians 2:10 Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

Everytime you explode in tongues against the works of the flesh, you are confirming the judgement of the Holy Spirit against the devil.

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away:

for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin,

and of righteousness, and of judgment:

John 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Praying in tongues, I believe, must have played a vital role in Paul’s Christian adventure, and I think that 1 Thessalonians 2:10 is one of the effects of such.

That’s why he could say, “Be ye followers of me, as I am of Christ.”
Paul is saying in effect that you don’t need a Bible to get to heaven, just follow me.

He was too sure of his walk with God! He was living above board. He confronted sin with all forms of authority. He looked at fornication and spoke strongly against it.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost...

He knew what he was talking about, that when you engage the Holy Ghost on your inside, the devil can’t touch you with filthiness. No!

Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

You can put to death the works of those controls, by engaging the Spirit against every trace of such controls you notice in your life.

Look at this: when the water level is low in a hydro electricity supply dam, the power supply has to be rationed, because the rate of the turning of the turbines has gone down. So the power supply reduces.

The same way, when your water level is low, the river of God inside you is low. So the power it generates is low. What do you do?

You pray, from the depth of your heart, for an infilling — let the earth under you shake, and let your life be filled to overflowing!

Then you engage the Spirit, you burst forth in tongues praying in the Spirit, to subdue those forces and put them to death!

Everytime you are praying in the Spirit against the motions of the flesh —anger, lust, coveteousness, depression — you are commanding the judgement of the Spirit against the forces that are controlling your life remotely from the spirit realm.

Don’t let that thing stay on! Pray! Pray in the Holy Ghost!

That motion in your flesh can be consumed! That lying, that crave for adultery, drugs, beating your wife, yelling at your children, can be consumed!

All you need is, engage the Spirit. As you pray in tongues, you will devastate the works of the flesh.

Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

So it takes a lot of praying in the Spirit to break the spirit of bondage that brings many into captivity.

In hunting, many times you don’t see the animal, you just see the movement of the bush, and you know that an animal is there. You then go ahead and shoot. You don’t wait to find out what type of animal it is.

Likewise, the moment you notice any negative movement in your mind or your body, just burst out praying in the Spirit.

For instance, you don’t dream a bad dream and let it stay. The moment your eyes are open, open fire in tongues!

Whatever it is, you address it in the Spirit, according to the will of God; bringing judgement upon it, and establishing your liberty!

1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

When you pray in the Holy Ghost, your communication is outside the devil’s understanding. He can’t connect, so he can’t attack, because he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.

What happens is that, as you’re praying or speaking in tongues, the fire of the Holy Ghost begins to work inside your body, to burn off all the chaff, and purify you from every filthiness.

This is one of the ways to purify yourself as 1 John 3:3 says.

1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Praying in the Holy Ghost will help you to mortify the deeds of the flesh anytime.
Now, celebrate your authority over those unclean spirits in tongues!

Amen

Hallelujah
