The key for receiving the breakthrough you need from the Lord is to take your rightful place of authority over the devil.
Some people don't believe there is a devil. But I want to tell you today that there is a God -- there is a devil. They are at odds with one another, and the battlefield of their conflict is your life. The source of every conflict you experience in this life is the battle that is being waged in the spirit realm.
The devil is determined to destroy you and everything you love, everything good, everything holy, everything perfect and pure, everything that has power. The devil wants to destroy you. Jesus wants to take off you what the devil put on, and put back on you everything the devil took off.
Jesus said, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that . . . more abundantly" (John 10:10). Satan's whole purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. He wants to steal your kids. He wants to steal your family. He wants to kill your body and destroy your life. And he will use whatever means he can to accomplish his goal.
Jesus Christ came for one purpose, to annihilate the works of the devil in your life! "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3: 8). When Jesus hung on the cross He said, "It is finished." In other words, "It is done" or "It is completed." What did He do? He destroyed the work of the enemy for eternity.
Now the One who holds the completed work over all the power of the enemy lives inside of you. Colossians 1:27 says it this way: "Christ in you, the hope of glory." The tremendous mystery that the Apostle Paul eludes of God's presence lives in you and me -- earthen vessels. That means you and I are walking "temples" of God. Paul said, "Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" (1 Corinthians 6:19).
The same manifested glory that was inside the Holy of Holies, now resides in you! That means that God's presence is inside you, and if God's presence is inside you, so is His power to deliver you and set you free from every bondage!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
