Open Heaven 24 September 2022 TOPIC: You Can’t Command Your Master
MEMORISE: “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” – Romans 6:16 (KJV)
Tomorrow’s Devotional: Open Heaven 25 September 2022 – From Prophecy to Decree
READ: Mark 3:23-27 (KJV)
23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Daniel 6-8
Open Heaven 24 September 2022 MESSAGE:
“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” – Ephesians 2:6
That Bible passage above is not for everybody, it is for only those who live holy. Psalm 24:3-4 says:
“3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”

If you don’t live holy, you cannot even ascend to God not to talk of sitting with Him. Thus those who don’t live holy cannot be seated with Christ and since Ephesians 1:20-21 says that Christ is seated above principalities and powers, they cannot command principalities and powers. In a crusade, when the fellow leading prayers is asking people to bind the devil and his agents, and the ones who are still living in sin are also binding, what the devil does is torment and oppress them even more. If you don’t believe me, ask the seven sons of Sceva (Acts 19:11-16). They were not children of God, and they were trying to command demons. The demons taught them a lesson that day. If you want to command demons, if you want the devil to leave you alone, then you must be holy. 1 John 3:8 says:
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
Who your father is determines who you can command. If your father is the househelp of a great man, you cannot command the great man’s children because they are indirectly your bosses. Rather, the children will command you. However, if you break free from their hold and you become greater than they, then you can command them.
I am giving you an invitation today to join those of us who are seated with Jesus Christ, far above principalities and powers. For us, the devil and his agents are our servants, we command them as we wish, and they cannot oppress us.
Open Heaven 24 September 2022 REFLECTION:
With your current lifestyle, can you command demons and have them obey?
