BINDING THE STRONGMAN
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.
The word BIND simply means to tie or fasten something tightly together, in my own definition. It simply means to put something under one’s subjection, control, crush, subdue or suppress.
The word STRONGMAN according to oxford dictionary simply means a man of great physical strength or a leader who rules by the exercise of threats, force or violence.
Looking at the scripture’s view of point, there is NO man who causes threat, humiliation and havoc if not the man of perdition “LUCIFER”, John 10v10. Lucifer is the STRONGMAN who manufactured a mischievous device in order to put man in a state of devastation. Genesis 3v1-7
The greatest weapon in the hand of LUCIFER is SIN, He knew if man should see him in a physical form, man would flee from his presence; but he decided to manufacture his weapons in a unique way in order to approach, penetrate and to defeat man, so he fashioned many SIN in a deceitful manner. SIN becomes man’s greatest STRONGMAN to defeat.
Until man acknowledge and defeat his STRONGMAN, man will always live in a state of oppression.
There was a man called David who acknowledge his fault because he realize that the only way he could STOP the flow of the anointing in his life is through SIN “STRONGMAN” Psalm 19v12, so he declared himself guilty before GOD so that forgiveness could be granted.
As a believer, if we refuse to deny or let GO of the STRONGMAN. Sickness, Humiliation, Pain, Fear, Trouble, and shame are always at our door step. It is impossible to dine with the STRONGMAN and still expect to dine with GOD. It’s a “TABOO” 1 Corinthians 10v21, Mathew 6v24
If a man does not BIND the STRONGMAN through genuine REPENTANCE, he dare not try to penetrate the jurisdiction of principalities and powers; because the right to trespass is not given to him. Genuine repentance give’s a believer the right, warrant, order, permit and a license to trespass and violate the laws governing the domains of LUCIFER and his cohort.
The scripture says can a man enter into a STRONGMAN’S house without binding him? It’s impossible. You will rather go back home seriously wounded.
29 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.
There is an account of the 7sons of sceva. Whose father was a Jewish high priest these young men violated God’s laws and order but decided to take upon themselves what belongs to the circumcised. But they paid for it severely. Acts 19v11-16, they decided to conduct a deliverance without a license, permit authority and order. But the unfortunate happened, they were humiliated by their own “STRONGMAN” sin.
As a believer or non-believer, the only way to be saved and stay delivered from the STRONGMAN is through genuine REPENTANCE. Devil has no respect or pity for his victim.
Devil’s victims are like fowls; packed in one cage and ready for slaughter at any point in time; you can renounce the STRONGMAN today and stay safe.
God is ready and willing to use all men if only we could deal with the “STRONGMAN”
2 Timothy 2v12
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
He wants to use you from henceforth; if only you could reject, renounce and hate the work of the STRONGMAN sin.
This message is just a token for the purpose of winning soul’s for GOD in order to DEPOPULATE the kingdom of hell. And i hope it will meet a tasty heart at the point of need in JESUS NAME.
