Matthew 12:28 “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 “Or how can anyone enter the strong man’s house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
30 “He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.
We must first bind the powers of a strong man by agreeing with Jesus and what He has bound.
First we must identify what is holding us back, hindering progress, opposing us, hindering God’s will, stopping salvations, resisting righteousness… There are evil spirits engaged against all mankind…to kill, steal and destroy. These powers must be identified.
Second we must enter the strongman’s house (arena, sphere and place). Proximity in some form, by name or by presence is a key to spiritual victory.
Third we must “bind” them. That is we name them or name what they are causing and command them to cease.
Forth we plunder what’s been stolen, held back, kept from us. We take back what Satan has claimed and bring destruction to his “house”. In the case of souls our plunder is the people who’ve been held by demonic power.
