CAPTIVES OF THE MIGHTY Ephesians 4:7-12

 

There are many destinies that are in captivity under satan. The devil has wasted the destiny of many because they died without fulfilling their mandate in life. Despite the fact that many are born again, they cant still explain why some parts of their lives are still in captivity under satan.

V7-12 “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”. One of the main reasons why Jesus had to die was to descend into hell to defeat satan, death and hades in victory, 1Corinthians 15:54-57 “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”.

Jesus visited the hell, collected the keys of the kingdom of darkness from satan and freed the captives of hell. When Jesus emerged from hell, the mighty that put sons of men in captivity, were rendered powerless and thrown into captivity. Jesus transferred His authority to the sons of men and gave gifts unto them to be instruments of deliverance for their fellow men.

We must not shy from the truth that some part of our lives may still be in captivity under satan due to some covenants in our lives. Are you under the yoke of sickness, demonic attack, under-achievement, unfruitfulness etc? Break covenants that may be used against you, ask for more spiritual empowerment and stand in the victory that Jesus had given unto men by waging war against the powers holding you down. Fight the fight of faith till what you desire is delivered unto you.

 

Prayer point: By the death and resurrection of Jesus, I arrest every strongman against my life and destiny in Jesus name.
