Why is it that we expect less, not more, from God? Why are we not living a miraculous faith? Why do we receive less from God instead of the abundant “more” that he actually wants to give us? Listen to this important episode. Satan is doing everything he can to disempower the Church, because we are a huge threat to him. Satan doesn’t want us to fully grasp the truth about what we can receive from God, because with it we can change the world. So here’s a 4-second prayer that immediately defeats Satan.
If the Body of Christ on Earth today (you, me, and all who have faith in Christ) were to come fully alive in the Holy Spirit and be who we really, truly, are — little Christs banded together and covering the whole earth, doing what Jesus did — it is Satan and all evil-doers who would be disempowered. The 4-second prayer that defeats Satan, which is described in this episode, is really very simple and very powerful.
We want to conquer evil. We want to be a Spirit-filled Church, right? We want to be God’s instruments of divine power. If we read the Book of Acts (the Acts of the Apostles), we see how it happened on a daily basis through the first Christians. And we wish it could be like that today.
So then, where’s the disconnect? Why is there so much evil in the world today even though we are a Church of people who can rightfully say, “Greater is he who is in me than he who is in the world.” That’s from the 1 John 4:3-4. Let me read that to you:
“Every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus as Lord is not from God but is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. You, however, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.”
So, with Jesus in us, we should be able to do everything that Jesus did. Everything and more. That’s what he says in John 14:12. Let me read that to you:
“Truly, truly I tell you—” (and you know what “truly, truly” means? He says it twice. It’s like saying “very, very important”. This is very, very important. “Truly, truly I tell you, whoever believes in Me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I’m going to the Father.”
And then a couple of verses later, in verses 16 and 17, he said:
“The Father will give you the Spirit of Truth to help you and be with you forever. The world cannot accept him, for it neither sees him nor knows him, but you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”
Wow! With the Holy Spirit in us, nothing can stop us from being God’s instrument of divine power. Nothing except our disbelief in the truth of this. Nothing but the misconceptions we hold about the reality of this. We need to clear our minds of all false teachings, all false ideas about the Holy Spirit.
