Genesis that is were it is found. God gave authority on earth to man. Man gave authority to satan by not obeying God. Yes the earth is the Lords But God is not a liar, he has to keep order in what he does or he is not God. That is why he came as a man, "JESUS" it gave him authority on the earth legally to destroy the works of satan. Jesus was on the earth as a man for 30 years, then what took place to start his mission? satan can only deceive you that is all he has the power to do on this earth.

Satan has already been bound--that is limited in power--by our Lord Jesus Christ!

Satan is the "strong man" of Christ's parable. He Himself has bound Satan by His Incarnation and Resurrection, and spoiled his goods, namely us.

"Bind" does not mean "rendered inoperative" but "limited."

Alas, during the Tribulation, Satan will be released from this bondage, as Revelation says.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

lidia, I sure wish you wouldn't get into stuff like you described. that is the worst thing you could do is get tied up with prayer mountain. while Ive never heard of that one, Ive seen stuff like that before and it isn't good. I got a cloth in the mail once and I was suppose to return it with "money" and I burned it. God is not pleased with stuff like that.

Concerning Evil Spirits, Demons, the ocultic practices, etc.. - Someone sent me "a mountain of prayers!" from a Pastor known for prayers, help people get deliverance, it has been really a help to me. He has all kinds of prayers, I was very surprized how he explains, perhaps that I had thought was a " ghost" very well voice emulate from a dolls pictures on the wall, jewelry , the devil sends evil spirits into these objects..
I was not real scarry, bless God these tapes are really marvelous! Just praying..

real ghosts are rare.. Satan can emulate any life form.

St. Mark 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe, In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues, Be sure you are a believer! Acts 19:13-16 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are ye?And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

There are a few translations: A more accurate translation might be. "that which would be declared and bound on the earth will have already been declared bound in heaven first, that which would be declared and loosed on earth will have already been declared and loosed in heaven first"....Heaven and earth come together then as disciples proclam the message of salvation, confirming some of their sin, loosing others to the freedom of forgiveness. You can look at these in [Matt. 18:20, 16:19]. Thank you.+

Response to do we have authority and power over the devil: Yes we do!
Luke 9:1 authority over devils and diseases
Luke 10:19 Jesus said I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions which means this is the domain of Spiritual Authority, it is only over spirit beings, and not at all over humans.

Getting back to the topic...
The Roman Church, Protestantism and Evangelicalism, have always ignored the promises to the Patriarchs, and believe we have taken Israel's place as the royal priesthood and holy nation. This is falsehood.

Those who believe and teach this are blinded to the truth of God. The power to bind and cast out belongs to the Lord's disciples alone. We are never called His disciples by Paul, the Gentiles never were instructed by the Lord. Only Paul, our Apostle' has our instructions from the Lord. 1C 4:16 1C 11:1 Phl 3:17 1Th 1:6

When we attain incorruption, under His command and authority in the next age, we will reconcile the celestials with Him. It is then that our authority will be wielded.

We can bind Satan
---jackie on 7/9/12




Micheal, your assumption of Paul's inability to bind the Adversary contains warrant. Neither could he heal Timothy towards the end of his ministry, wine being the only alternative to offer. It may be that gifting ceased for him by obedience to divine instruction, or the withdrawing of the charis gifts til His return
---Phil on 7/8/12


Jesus did when he said IT IS WRITTEN...

Therefore, it is a matter of Truth belief and upholding the word when it comes to trials and temptations.

Resist the devil and he will flee, Call on the name of Jesus, his name is above any other name.

There is power in his name, especially when you repeat it.

Our apostle Paul apparently couldn't bind Satan, so how do we?

2 Cor 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
---michael_e on 7/8/12


Paul, the only Apostle for us (Ro 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God,) never taught such a thing. It is for the Jew and the Kingdom evangel which will be on the earth, administered through His chosen people, Israel, when He returns. We are seated with Him in heavenly places far above principalities and powers. Satan is a tool in the hand of God. This teaching is rooted in failing to divide the word of truth correctly.2Ti 2:15
---Phil on 7/7/12


Ruben, In the Church of Christ, "My Church" Jesus said, He is the Head of the Church. The Church of Christ is universal (Catholic) in that it consist of genuine believers everywhere, alive and those who have died. "And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things to the Church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all" (Eph. 1:22,23). And again,
"For the husband is head of the wife, as also, Christ is the Head of the Church, and He is the Savior of the body" (Eph. 5:23). Remember, the Church is subject to Christ" (v.24). Read also (Col 1:18).
At the RCC the pope is head of that catholic Church. So it is not the same Church.
---Mark_V. on 7/5/12


Mark_V.* Ruben, it speaking of Churches where Jesus is Head.

Mark, Jesus said " I will built my Church" not churches and he also said "That they make be one" not as it is today! All built upon various pastoral opinions and suggestions

Mark V * When the Church removed the man from fellowship, they were doing in Corinth what God had already done in heaven.

That had nothing to do about what bound or loose, the best example of it is in Acts 15 where Peter made an authoritative decision on circumcision.BTW it was not by scripture alone!

Ruben, it speaking of Churches where Jesus is Head. Within the Corinthian Church a grossly immoral situation was allowed. A man was having an affair with his stepmother. Paul instructed the Church to deal with the problem. He said, "When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord... expel the wicked man from among you" When the Church removed the man from fellowship, they were doing in Corinth what God had already done in heaven. The Church had bound the sinful man. Should he repent, the Church was to accept him back into fellowship.
---Mark_V. on 7/4/12


"Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be lossed in heaven." The Church had power to forgive or not, according to the principles of the Word. The Church is not to determine these things but to declare judgment of heaven based on the principles of the Word. When they make such judgments on the basis of God's Word, they can be sure heaven is in accord. Whatever they "bind" or "loose" on earth is already "bound" or 'loosed" in heaven.
---Mark_V. on 7/2/12

Mark,

What Church are you talking about?

What have they 'bound' and 'loose'?
---Ruben on 7/3/12


Rob, the binding is not about Satan. The context of Matt. 18:18 that Jesus refers to the power of the Church, when a brother sins against another in the Church, He then give instructions (v.15-17) then says
"Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be lossed in heaven." The Church had power to forgive or not, according to the principles of the Word. The Church is not to determine these things but to declare judgment of heaven based on the principles of the Word. When they make such judgments on the basis of God's Word, they can be sure heaven is in accord. Whatever they "bind" or "loose" on earth is already "bound" or 'loosed" in heaven.
---Mark_V. on 7/2/12


like cluny said, satan is already bound.

It is in the Bible,Luke 10:19 KJV Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,and over all the power of the enemy:and nothing by any means will hurt you. The Gift of the Holy Ghost enables us with power,Acts 1:8 ye will receive power after the HG comes upon you,and the Name of Jesus opens the door to God for our prayers. Too few Christians realize the power God gives us and fewer still use that power to fight Satan.
---Darlene_1 on 7/1/12


Rob the scripture that I believe being applied is "Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Mat 18:18
It is also written "Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." Mat 28:18
It is He who has given us "power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: Luk 10:19
Satan is referred to as The serpent, Rev 12:9,14,15 and his followers as a vipers. Mat. 3:7>12:34>23:33
Jesus is He that actually binds Him, and I believe' Satan is bound or restricted in our lives under the authority of Jesus as we abide in Him.
---josef on 7/1/12


That's from the Gospels when Jesus said, "No one can enter the strong man's house unless he first bind the strong man, then he can spoil his good."

"Bind" does not mean 'render inoperative." It means "limiting his power."

Jesus is the Spoiler Who came to earth and bound Satan, the strong man. We are the goods Jesus takes out.

We are now living in the "thousand years" of grace. between the Lord's First and Second Comings.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
