Creflo Dollar — How to Use God's Power
Now, just like the policemen, there will be people who will try to oppose the law and will try to break the law. And that's when they get locked up. And so, likewise, you'll have demons that will try to oppose the laws of the spirit, and it's time for you to learn how to lock them up.
Are you listening to me? I don't know all the stuff that's gone on in your life, but I know a God who has given us the power. And if we will release our authority in faith, we can see things change today. It don't take another or months.
It takes you getting mad at the devil, mad at the circumstance, mad at the sickness, mad at the lack, and say, "I will not take this no more." You don't say no, "Dear Mr. Devil." You go and you say, "Devil, in the name of Jesus, I done put up with you the last 10 years.
Now, my Bible tells me that life is not supposed to be like that. And according to this Scripture and according to that Scripture, and over here in this book and over here in that book, this is how my life is supposed to be. Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I take my authority that I already have, and I command this to be in my life. And I rebuke you, I bind you, I arrest you, I lock you up, I put you in chains. You get out of my life."
A decision is an open door into reality. It never becomes a reality until you make a decision to choose and then you move with your authority. Authority, the right to God's power by enforcing his Word, the right to use God's power by enforcing his spiritual laws. That's powerful, that's powerful, that's you.
You have the blood of Jesus on you, and every demon recognizes that authority. And not only that, you're clothed with the armor of God. He don't know what's behind that armor. He don't know if it's another Jesus. He can't afford to keep goin'. When you say, "Stop," it stops.
