The Spirit of Control
Galatians 5:1 Romans 13:1-7 Hebrews 13:7 Ephesians 5:21
Satan is a dictator; all dictators are controlled by the devil, they have a spirit of control. Hitler was controlled by the devil. anyone who has a dictatorial spirit is an enemy of God, because they are contolled by the devil who is the enemy of God. the devilpossess people who in turn try to control the lives of others through his manipulative evil power.
There are many people today who have a spirit of control; it could be someone you know or even someone in your own house. A spirit of control will drive, oppress and manipulate people. God is against this spirit of control and will judge those who willingly co-operate with its evil power, because they have allowed the devil into their lives. This also applies to leaders of nations who have placed themselves and that nation under a yoke of bondage. God is against the yoke of bondage and oppression.
Jesus came to set the captives free; He's come to repossess the ground that Adam by his trangression surrendered to the devil. Jesus won the victory over sin and the devil on Calvary's cross to redeem mankind. There are many people all over the world that are under the oppression of the devil.
The born again church of Jesus Christ has a message of deliverance to proclaim to those who are under the oppression of the devil; we have a message with the power of God in it to set people free. The message is the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the power of God unto salvation for all those who believe.
The born again Christian has now been given the authority and power of God through the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ, to repossess the ground in peoples lives who willingly want to be set free from Satan's power.
If you are under the influence of someone who has a spirit of control, then you need to break free from this evil yoke; Jesus Christ has the power to help you, but you must ask Him. If you do not have the courage to break free from this yoke of control and oppression, then you need to realise that in the near future the devil's plan is to place a yoke of bondage on the whole world by a spirit of control operating through the Antichrist whom he has appointed. You need to break free from all evil yokes of control over your life now! For if you don't then you will not be able to see the yoke of Antichrist coming upon you to enslave you.
The Bible instructs us to submit to all God appointed authorities that are ordained by Him, which begins in the family right up to National Government. Submitting to these God ordained authorities is not surrendering our freedom to a spirit of control; on the contrary, if we submit to the God ordained authorities over our lives, then we will enjoy the freedom and peace that comes through this kind of obedience.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me
Because the Lord has anointed Me
to preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the broken hearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prision to
those who are bound. - Isaiah 61:1
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
with the Holy Spirit and with power,
who went about doing good and healing
all who were oppressed by the devil,
for god was with Him. - Acts 10:38
