The Lord gave me a powerful dream about breaking the powers of darkness. I will share three keys the Lord revealed in order to see a breakthrough. I believe it’s crucial for the Body of Christ to grasp these insights into spiritual warfare.
Before delving into the dream, I would like to establish a foundation. As believers, engaging in warfare is inevitable, but it comes with a prerequisite – our lives must be clean. When confronting the demonic realm and unclean spirits, being in right standing with God is non-negotiable. Demons capitalize on legal loopholes when they sense a believer is not in proper alignment with God. Take a look at the 10 Commandments to see if you are walking in holiness or not. God is not looking for perfection but those with repentant hearts who desire to walk in righteousness.
In this dream, I found myself on a spiritual assignment called by the Lord to set someone free from the clutches of darkness. I was not freeing the person physically but spiritually. The setting was an abandoned five-story building. I ascended the stairs, running eagerly to the top floor. The entire top floor was shrouded in black clouds that were swirling around. I could feel an overwhelming presence of evil.
I was not going to step into the darkness, but I stood in the doorway boldly declaring, “I am a Daughter of the Most High God – In the name of Jesus, I command every spirit to leave.” However, my words seemed ineffectual, and a struggle ensued. I repeated the command, “In the name of Jesus, every spirit leave.” Nothing happened. I repeated the command again, but my mouth was afflicted, which was a clear manifestation of the power of darkness resisting the name of Jesus.
Despite the affliction, I persevered, declaring through a whisper, “In the name of Jesus, I command you spirits to leave.” The struggle was real, but after what seemed like an eternity, the breakthrough finally came. The darkness broke, giving way to clarity, brightness, and light. The dream concluded, leaving me in awe of the incredible power that comes with invoking the name of Jesus.
This dream held profound lessons, and I discerned three crucial key points for spiritual warfare:
1. Know Who You Are in Christ:
You are a son or a daughter of the Most High God. Understanding your identity in Christ is important. As sons and daughters of God, we possess confidence, purpose, worth, and privileges. Galatians 3:26 says, In Christ Jesus, you are all children of God through faith. This scripture reinforces our status as heirs through faith in Christ Jesus. This awareness empowers us to stand against the onslaught of darkness because our Father in Heaven has our back.
2. The Name of Jesus Holds Authority:
When engaging in spiritual warfare, declaring the name of Jesus is the ultimate weapon. Luke 10:17 states, that when Christ’s followers returned from spreading the gospel they said to Jesus, Lord even the demons submit to us in your name. As a believer, you must recognize the authority vested in the name of Jesus, using it to command change in your circumstances and destroy the powers of darkness.
3. Don’t Give Up in the Face of Adversity:
The dream revealed the heightened attacks from the enemy when believers stand firm. It’s a call to resilience and endurance. Despite afflictions, health challenges, financial struggles, or family crises, you must not waver. The enemy’s plan is to make you weary and weak so that you give up. Victory comes to those who press on, declaring the name of Jesus.
Knowing who you are, understanding the authority in the name of Jesus, and standing firm in the face of adversity are keys to breaking the powers of darkness. Remember, this battle will be tiresome, but God will give you the strength you need to endure. The bible says, there is a time and season for everything. Keep declaring the word of God in Jesus’ name, keep standing firm, and in God’s time – your situation will change, and the darkness will break.
