KEYS OF HEAVEN
You have the keys of Heaven at
Jesus gave us the keys to Heaven to "bind
up" the evil and "loose" the good.
"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven;
and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound
in Heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth,
shall be loosed in Heaven." Matt 16:19
Remove the evil. Find a verse concerning what
you want to remove.
You must bind the "strong man", which is
the bad spirit (demon, power, principality) that has
a hold of the person you are praying for. Search for
a verse of scripture that you can pray. "But
no'one can enter the strong mans house, unless he
first binds the strong man." Mark 3:27
Replace the evil with good.
This is very important! "When the unclean spirit
goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places
seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, 'I will
return to my house from which I came.' And when it
comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it
goes and takes along seven other spirits more evil
than itself, and they go in and live there; and the
last state of that man becomes worse then the first."
A good example of this is, you pray the scripture
over your spouse that binds the strongman...
"God grants ______ repentence leading him
to a knowledge of truth that _____ will come to his
senses and escape from the trap of the devil who has
taken him captive to do his will. _______ shakes himself
from the dust, arises and sits enthroned. _______
frees himself from the bands on his neck, he/she is
a child of Zion. From 2 Tim 2:25-26 and I am not remembering
the other scripture source right off hand..these are
some God gave me when I was in the trial by fire to
use and I wrote them but did not note scripture references,
but they are all scripture.
Then you could replace with:
"For you _____, were once darkness, but now
you are light in the Lord. _______will live as a child
of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all
goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what
pleases the Lord. ______will have nothing to do with
the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose
them. Ephesians 5: 8-11
Always speak with authority also..just like the
Lord told Ezekiel to take authority and prophesize
to the dry bones in the valley. If you want to see
how much power you have through God to take authority
over things, then read Ezekiel 37:1-14. So when you
speak scripture over your spouse and situation, do
so with authority in Christ...note how instead of
saying "God, may you grant____ repentence..."
I said, "God grants ______repentence..."
God wants you to speak the things you desire as though
they already are.
If you fail to replace.
If you fail to replace what you have removed, it will
become worse then before you prayed. You must always
replace something evil with something good. This is
one reason why so many who go on diets actually gain
more weight. The stop eating the bad, but never replace
it with something good such as exercise. This is kind
of difficult for some..but the truth is, as the Bible
states, we are warring against powers and principalites.
When satan was cast out of Heaven, 1/3 of the angels
went with him, and these angels became dark angels,
more pointedly demons, and it is these demon spirits
that onto or into humans and influence them away from
God. This is what you are dealing with in your spouse,
and if you think there are no such things as demons,
you better get to reading Gods word...He explicitly
states that you do not war against the flesh..or humans
in other words, but the powers of the dark world.
Jesus cast out many demons in His walk on earth, and
He left us with the authority to cast them out, giving
us the power to do so on pentecost when He gave us
His Spirit. His word also tells us that if you remove
one and it is not replaced with good, or God, it will
go out a round up seven more even more evil and bring
them back in. I know for a fact this is true..been
there and done that. If you are under attack of the
enemy...broken marriage is one of his greatest attacks,
then you better get smart about what you are fighting
against..you must know who and what your adversary
is if you intend to defeat them. Your spouse has been
taken into captivity by satan and his demon spirits
to do his bidding...bottom line, and this is why they
have went off into adultery, drugs, gambling, whatever
it may be that they have went into and become that
has destroyed your marriage. If you want to get them
back, set them free, get your home restored...then
you better get straight on what you are dealing with
and know that your only hope is in God, working with
God for the victory against satan and his minions
as I call them.
Replace the lies with the truth.
The truth is only found in His word. Unless what you
hear, what you read, what someone tells you matches
up with a principle in God's word, it is a lie! One
of those lies is to move on and forget your spouse...that
is totally against Gods word..God hates divorce, He
intended marriage to be forever, and if you want to
save that marriage, God will help you do it! Bottom
line! This goes for subsequent marriages also, it
does not pertain only to first marriages and I can
show you the scripture to prove that.
Replace the "arm of flesh" with the
Replace trusting in "the arm of the flesh"
(you, your spouse, your friend, a pastor, whomever)
with trusting in the Lord. "Finally, be strong
in the Lord, and in the strength of His might."
Eph. 6:10 This does not mean that you cannot lean
of anyone, talk to anyone, listen to anyone, this
means that you seek the Lord first and foremost. God
uses others to talk to you, to give you His Rhema
word (spoken word directly from Him to you). But do
not depend on others to fix your problems, do not
look to them for the help, the fix, as that comes
only from the Lord. Spilling your guts to your missing
spouse is not going fix the situation, it is only
going to give the enemy controlling your spouse more
ammunition against you. Remember, you are not dealing
with your spouse, it is not your spouse who is doing
anything to you, it is satan and his demon spirits
who have taken your spouse captive. Do not consort
with the enemy, let God deal with them and you just
deal with God.
Replace running away with running to Him!
"God is our refuge and our strength, a very present
help in time of trouble." Ps. 46:1. Run to the
book of Psalms! Read Psalms (and Proverbs) daily.
Pray Psalm scriptures over your situation. Psalms
is one Bible book that you find something that contends
with every given thing in your situation, from adultery
to unGodly friends influencing your spouse and praying
to block them, cut them off, from your spouse. Psalms
is the book of artilliary in a sense, Davids Psalms,
as God was always leading David into battles, and
that is much of what David wrote about. It is suggested
that you read the Psalms that correspond to the day
of the month plus 30 until the end of the book, so
today is the 31st of May, which means you would read
Psalms 31, 61, 91, and 121, then read the corresponding
Proverb, which would be Proverbs Chapter 31. Or, some
say since Psalm 119 is so long, they read it on the
31st of each month.
Replace crying out to another with crying out
He promises to hear you and to lift you up immediately!
But you must cry out! Don't think to yourself, "Well,
God hasnt helped me in the past!" If He didnt
help, its simply because you didnt ask. "Ask
and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find."
Matt. 7:7 I have had people tell me that the only
reached a breakthrough response once they got broken
and on their faces before God..sincerely crying out
to Him. Many of whine and cry around, more like complainers
and weaklings then actual distress. This just indicated
lack of faith and one must have faith to please God,
the word says so. God spoke to me to scream out once,
with the scripture about marching around the city
of Jericho for six days, then on the seventh day have
seven priests blowing trumpets while marching around
the city seven times, and when the people hear the
long blast from the trumpets, they were to give a
loud shout and then the wall of the city would collapse.
I was going to go find a empty field and just shout
at the top of my lungs, because one thing I know for
sure, obedience to what God tells you to do is imperative
and it does not matter how crazy it is, the thing
He is telling you to do..it has a divine purpose behind
it. But I had prayer meeting that night and as we
all stood holding hands around the prayer alter, pastor
said that God spoke to him and told him that on the
count of seven all of us were to shout at the top
of our lungs. This is how God works, He confirms everything
He tells you to do, and I did not have to find a field,
God gave to me brothers and sisters in Christ to hold
hands with and shout just as He told me to do that
day, by giving Pastor Frank the same message at prayer
meeting that night. It was a couple days later that
my husband came home. :-)
