I saw us as individuals each driving snow plows. We were working together as one to clear out the area. And as we were pushing back the snow (old, ice-hard, dirty snow that had piled up into big hills), the picture changed and I saw us pushing back against the clutter, the clamour and the dirt of the enemy. I then heard the Lord say, “Come together and resist the occupation of the enemy. Take back the territory with the authority that I have given you. I have called YOU to occupy the nations; will you move in and take it?
My Word says, ‘Resist the devil and he will flee!’ Church, your job is to resist the enemy who is trying to occupy the space that I have given you. This space is your community, your city, your nations! Come together as one and push back the enemy! Take the territory of the nations for I have given you the authority to do so!”
James 4:7 NIV
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Luke 10:19 NIV
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
