SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." Luke 10:17
Jesus sent out seventy other disciples to heal the sick and cast out demons and they returned, joyful that what He had told them was indeed true, that in His name they had all power and authority over their enemies!
One day while trying to cast a demon out of a woman speaking in a demonic male voice and feeling pretty cocky I commanded the demon to bow before the Lord Jesus Christ. The demon said no! So, two more times I commanded him to bow before the Lord and he also said, no, when the Holy Spirit whispered in my ear, "He's bowed three times, what else do you want him to do?" I laughed and could imagine seeing Him roll His eyes at my pitiful attempt to command this demon to bow!
From that day forward I didn't converse with demons, only to say, "Come out!" I had realized the power and authority we have been given over the powers of darkness and that they are liars! No matter what they tell you, command them out and leave knowing that you have authority in Christ!
"Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Luke 10:19
