The mighty name of Jesus

he arose

Genesis 49:1, 22-24 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. … Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel🙂

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Philippians 2:1-11 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Isaiah 30:29 Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel.

The Lord bless thee

heart of love


Genesis 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

Numbers 6:24-26 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

The helmet of salvation

Put on the Whole Armour of God

The Christian's spiritual armour is set forth in Ephesians 6:10-18. 
There are seven pieces of armour: (1) Loins girt about with truth, (2) The 
breastplate of righteousness, (3) Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of 
peace, (4) The shield of faith, (5) The helmet of salvation, (6) The sword of the 
Spirit which is the word of God, and (7) Praying in the Spirit. Pay special attention 
to the "helmet of salvation" for the guarding of your thought life. Most demons 
seeking to re-enter assail the thoughts. Become watchful of any thoughts that 
could be considered negative; they are from the enemy. Separate their thoughts 
from your own. Refuse the thoughts they give you and replace them with positive 
spiritual thoughts.  Resist the devil at the first sign of his attack.

Philippians 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things 
are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever 
things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and 
if there be any praise, think on (say) these things.

Confess Positively

Negative confessions characterize demonic influence. Positive confession is faith 
expressed. Confess what God's Word says. Any other confession will open the door 
for the enemy.  

Mark 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, 
Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, 
but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall 
have whatsoever he SAITH.

A good and honest heart


Luke 8:15 

But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

James 5:7   

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Faith and patience

be still

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3

We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

Hebrews 6:10-12

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Revelation 3:10

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Draw near to God



Isaiah 55:7-8 

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly (fully) pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Psalm 73:28 

But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

Romans 5:1, 9 

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: … Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

James 4:8 

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you…
