It's Time to Remove the Thief!
~Kathi Pelton The enemy comes in many forms to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10) but God comes to give life…abundant life!
One of the main ways that the enemy invades is through the door of the soul (your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions). Recently I saw a vision of Jesus going through rooms and it appeared that he was turning over tables—similar to his action in the temple—but when I looked closer it was thrones that were being turned over to displace those who sat upon these thrones. I asked the Lord,
“What are these thrones that have been occupied by imposters?”
“They are the thrones of the soul. Many of my people have had ‘enemies of the soul’ occupying them. I am displacing these thieves and taking my place upon the throne of their life.”
There are the enemies such as fear, unbelief, vanity, other “gods”, wrong beliefs, pride, and wrong identities that have enthroned themselves in your soul. These enemies are given a place of rulership and control over the soul of the believer as they are listened to.
It is time to allow Jesus to come in and topple them from the thrones of your soul! It is time for Jesus to be given his rightful place upon every part of your life. Your soul will be healed and free to experience abundant life as the enemy is displaced from having rulership over your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.
Pray this prayer with me,
“Jesus, come and search every part of me. Topple the enemy in every place that he has set up a throne in my soul that robs me of abundant life and keeps you from receiving your rightful place. Right now I declare that the enemies of my soul are displaced and their thrones in my soul are overturned. Fear must go, unbelief must go, pride and vanity must go, victim mentalities must go, other “gods” must go and every thing that has exalted itself above Christ must now go! Jesus, there is to be one throne, and one King upon that throne in my life. I now say, ‘Take your rightful place in my body, soul, and spirit. Be enthroned in my life and establish your kingdom that ushers in abundant life for me.’”
Jesus overturn every throne that is not occupied by you in the lives of your sons and daughters. Go through the rooms of our souls and clean house. It is time and we freely give you permission to make our lives a temple of honor and a house of prayer where you alone are enthroned. Amen
Who Are My Accusers?
It is a wonderful truth that because we are justified in Christ Jesus, we have passed from death to life, and we are free from judgment because of our sin, we are delivered from the power of sin, and we are entitled to the reward that God gives to the righteous.
The Bible teaches that by our faith in Jesus, we have been made a new creation; we are now “in Christ;” we belong to Him and are identified with Him in the sight of God. Listen to the clear words of Scripture: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name… (John 1:12)
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him…the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:8, 10-11)
But He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. (1 Corinthians 6:17; 12:27)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation….(2 Corinthians 5:17)
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (Galatians 3:27)
More than 700 years before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, spoke out powerful declarations of confidence Jesus would express about the love and faithfulness of His Father. Jesus knew that He would triumph over every accusation and every assault of wickedness against Him.
These passages from Isaiah are echoed in the book of Romans, as Paul recounts the power the blessings that have now come to us.... (click here to read the rest)
Declarations from the Word: Sin's Power is Broken
God's Word is powerful and it is your sword. To live without it is to live as a warrior with no weapon in your hand. Sin has lost its power over your life, so It is time to be free and to set others free!
Below are powerful declarations from Scripture. Speak them over yourself until you see the chains that have bound you—or a loved one—fall away.
“I know that my old sinful self was crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in my life. I am no longer a slave to sin.
And since I died with Christ, I know I will also live with Him. I am sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and He will never have to die again. Death no longer has any power over Him. When He died, He died once to break the power of sin. But now that He lives, He lives for the glory of God. So I also should consider myself to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
I will not let sin control the way I live; I will not give in to sinful desires. I will not let any part of my body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, I will give myself completely to God, for I was dead, but now I have new life. I will use my whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God. Sin is no longer my master, for I no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, I live under the freedom of God’s grace.
Since God’s grace has set me free from the law, does that mean that I should go on sinning? Of course not! I now realize that I become a slave to whatever I choose to obey. I can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or I can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.
Today I choose to become a slave to righteousness. Thank God! Once I was a slave of sin, but now I wholeheartedly choose to obey this teaching that he has given to me. I am now free from my slavery to sin, and I have become a slave to righteous living.”
