OPERATION ‘NO LOSS HERE!’
“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” 1 John 5:18-19
Many years back I read an account of a vision that brother Hagin had in which the Lord Jesus appeared to him and gave him some very important instructions about his ministry.
In that encounter, he said a little black animal showed up in between himself and the Lord and began to cast a dark smoke. Initially he could still see and hear the Lord but as the smoke got thicker, he could barely see or hear what the Lord was saying.
Brother Hagin said he was so angry and frustrated because what the Lord was saying was very important but He acted totally oblivious of the demon. He expected Him to have done something about the demon or either stop the conversation till the demon was dealt with considering the gravity of their conversation.
Finally out of frustration, Bro. Hagin rebuked the demon, it immediately ran off and the smoke screen cleared. All this while, the Lord kept on talking as though nothing was happening.
Bro. Hagin said he stopped the Lord and asked him why he did nothing about that devil. Jesus’ answer astounded him. He said he couldn’t do anything about it. He’s delegated all His authority in the earth to the church. You don’t have what you’ve delegated!
You see I believe that in these last days we will see the body of Christ rise up to the fullness of what the Lord has provided for her.
Jesus separated the enemy and gave us ALL his authority to use here on Earth.
Note what the Apostle John says in our text. The whole world lies in wickedness. Satan is working overtime to steal, to kill and to destroy because he knows his time is short.
But we are of God. We are born of God and we have his authority!
John says we have the responsibly to keep ourselves and the wicked one cannot touch us. In essence if he touches us, it’s not because he’s so powerful or God failed us, it’s because we didn’t keep ourselves.
To keep means to protect from loss and harm. Satan cannot inflict harm or loss on you save that which you allow.
Refuse his attacks. Stand your ground. Keep yourself!
It’s time to declare over your life ‘Operation No Loss Here!’
I keep myself by arming myself with the word of God. I take a stand against the wiles of the enemy. I bring to nought, the condemnation, guilt, lies and attacks of the devil against my life as i stand on God’s word, immovable and unshakeable. I declare that there is no loss, no lack, and no limitation for me, In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
