Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me Scripture Reading: Matthew 28:18 (AMP)

Jesus has been given all authority to rule in heaven and on earth and He has dominion over everything. The devil knows that Jesus’ name is much greater than his. Therefore, he always imitates Jesus in order to win people over to his kingdom. The devil’s name is not powerful and is despised. Even his agents hate being called children of the devil. In fact, they get angry. They only want to be associated with the name of Jesus because His name is above all names. Through this kind of behaviour, they indirectly acknowledge that Jesus is All-powerful. Hence the devil always assumes the Lord’s identity in order to operate in people’s lives.

Most people, including Inyangas and false prophets reject Jesus but want His power because they know that the power of Jesus is above the power of the devil. However, one cannot have the power of Jesus without receiving Him first. When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, His power consumes you and starts operating in your life. Once His power takes over, all evil spirits that used to operate in your life before you were saved are stopped in their tracks. When power meets power, the lesser power bows! This is the reason why agents of the devil cannot stand being around true Christians who are filled with the power of God. Their powers are automatically nullified.

If you are suffering because your forefathers sold you to the devil through ancestral rituals and dedications, this message is for you. Your family’s dealing with the devil has given him power over you and as a result you are suffering. However, God wants to turn your life around child of God. If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, I have good news for you! You have received the power that is above all powers and the devil cannot rule over you anymore!

When the first man Adam sinned, death and suffering came. When the second Adam, who is Jesus, came people received freedom and life in abundance. The same applies to you dear Christian. Long ago, the devil raised your forefathers to submit to him through ancestral worship and rituals, thereby giving him power to perpetuate his evil will in your family. As a result you have been living in lack, sicknesses and poverty. However, the Lord Jesus had a plan on how to save your family. Many generations later, God raised you the second Adam of your family to counteract the devil’s plans and stop his activities. Through you, your family members shall receive goodness, peace and riches. You have to undo all the damage that the devil has caused in your family. The power that you possess has the ability to wreak havoc in the kingdom of darkness. Therefore, the operations of the devil cannot continue in your family.

You need to boldly take your stand and demolish all the altars of idol worship that were raised in your family. Do not be surprised if your family members suddenly hate when you demolish those altars. You are doing something that shall benefit all of them at the end of the day. I want to encourage you to stand firm and not give in to their threats, they will not harm you.

Always remember that your struggle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities and the powers of darkness (Ephesians 6:12). You have to fight the demons that possess your family members by praying. You were born in that family in order to reverse the works of the devil. Like Jeremiah God chose and ordained you to be a prophet in your family before forming you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). You are chosen to overthrow kingdoms through the authority God gave you. Jesus was able to command demons to come out and they obeyed His voice (Mark 1:27). Thus as child of God empowered by the Holy Spirit, you are also given power to command suffering, poverty, sicknesses and diseases out of your family. You are a pioneer starting a new book in your family and your actions shall be rewarded by God. Your family shall know and worship the true God because of you.

When Jesus called you to Christianity, He deposited His power in you. Use it to demolish the altars of the devil in your family. If you have not received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, receive Him today and receive authority to trample over snakes and scorpions! Do not rest until the activities of the devil are nullified in your family. Jesus lives in you so all the activities of the devil have to stop wherever you go. All those things that were sent to cause suffering shall yield to the power of your God. All those things that were given a seat to perpetuate suffering in your family shall know the power of God. You will command things and they shall obey your words.
