4 Ways To Whoop A Demon

A couple weeks back, one of our authors, Heidi Lynn, wrote an article that I found very inspirational. The article was entitled, “3 Step Formula To Beat The Devil.” The article highlighted the following 3 steps:

1. Redemption (Psa 103:12)

2. Rejuvenation (Isa 41:10)

3. Release (Phil 4:9)

I would encourage you to take a few minutes and check out her article if you haven’t already. I would also like to write on this subject, and I’m going to look at four factors that will whoop any demon. I would also like to make a note that I’m in complete agreement with Heidi’s position on this and a lot of what I’m going to say is just reiterating what she has already said. So here we go!

Share

The first way to whoop a demon is to share what the word of God says about a matter. Demons are liars and Satan is known as the “father of lies.” When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness he easily parried Satan’s attacks with three “It is written…” statements. Each statement was from the Old Testament portion of God’s word and Satan had no choice but to eventually flee since he could not argue with the Truth (Matt 4:1-11).

Prayer

The next wave of your attack builds on the last. It involves prayer and sharing scripture. When you’re praying, remember you’re speaking to the Creator of the universe and He demands faith if you want to please Him (Heb 11:6). God knows his promises, but remind Him of them anyway. For example, if the demon is causing physical damage, remind the Lord that He has said that by His stripes we are healed (Isa 53:5). If God promised it, it’s going to happen.

Declare

We are now going to build on the previous step by declaring. You can do this during prayer or you can just declare out loud. Declaring God’s will is an act of faith and God will honor it. Declare Satan defeated, declare healing, declare God’s provision, and so on. Remember, we not only have the power to bind Satan and his minions (Matt 12:29), but we have the power to release mighty things in Christ’s name as well (Matt 18:18).

Repair

If you’ve followed the past 3 steps and you’ve gotten rid of the demon(s), keep in mind that the battle is not over yet. The demon(s) will try to return with more demons, and even more wicked ones than you were dealing with to begin with. Their task at hand is to wreak more havoc than before and reclaim what they believe is their home (Matt 12:43-45). To successfully evict these spiritual pests, you need to fill yourself and your life with things of God. That way there is no room for them, and you’re living in accordance with God’s will.

Final Thought

So there you have it. Four, hopefully easy, steps to whoop any demon(s) that may be bothering you. Each step builds on the previous, and by time you get to the last, it’s just a matter of replacing the demon(s) with things of God. I would also encourage you once again to read Heidi’s article on the “3 Step Formula To Beat the Devil.” Thank you for reading and God bless.

What are some ways you can implement these steps into your life?

    I read once that we can’t bind the devil because if we could, he would not be able to afflict anyone anymore. So, I am wondering if resisting Him by using the name of Jesus and the word of God against him is more accurate than binding. Or, maybe I am just splitting word-usage hairs. At any rate, I’m all for getting rid of the devil’s presence anywhere near me or my loved ones. Thanks for the informative article.

    Stephanie H,

    Of course we can bind the devil. In fact, he is already on a leash. I think there is probably some confusion over what it means to “bind” something. When we bind something spiritually, it means we cut it off. If you cut off Satan from what isn’t his anyway, you are not necessarily keeping him from moving ever again. What you’re doing is shutting him down and claiming God’s blessings that Satan has taken away. So yes, Satan can be bound, and he needs to be many times as he moves on from person-to-person. Hope this was helpful. God bless.

    Spiritual warfare is a topic not talked about enough, and I really believe that that is Satan’s goal. When we aren’t thinking about warfare, we are far easier targets. When we take our enemy seriously and prepare for warfare, we are far more victorious. Praise the Lord for providing us with the plan and the artillery to win the war!
