Moses was called by God to lead the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt. Because he doubted how God was going to help him do this, God supplied him with a staff that worked miraculous signs in order to persuade Pharaoh to let God’s people go. He also sent Aaron to be Moses mouthpiece on behalf of God. Once God appeased Moses’ excuses for not following His command to go, Moses had nothing left, but to obey.
Today, we do not need a miracle working staff to perform great feats for the Kingdom of God. Today, we have HIS WORD to stand upon, to lean on and to trust in. Whenever I sense that I am being pushed into a corner by my situations or others, I use God’s WORD for deliverance!
Lack of Knowledge in Using the Word of God
Many believers lack knowledge when it comes to using Gods’ WORD. Their lives are a testimony of their inability to stand on His promises. They remain defeated in just about every area of their lives whether it be financially, physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. A deficit of the WORD of God can always be found in those who are lacking. It hurts me to see others suffer unnecessarily because they have the keys to the kingdom of God, and yet fail to use them appropriately.
The Powerful Tool of Binding and Loosing Works Today!
For instance, Matthew 18:18 is one of the most powerful keys to living in the kingdom of God that I have ever used. The WORD says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” I use this scripture when life’s circumstances began to close in on me or when others in the church are being afflicted. Why? Because it works! No matter what our situation, we can bind up Satan spiritually and loose God’s Holy Spirit into the center of that issue and find resolve.
This is why Jesus said, “Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? And then he will spoil his house.” (Matt. 12:29).
Friends, we have forgotten that we have the keys to the Kingdom of God to bind up the strongman of sin and to loose the blessings of God in our lives! Just like Moses used the staff of God to bring down plagues upon Egypt, we can use God’s WORD to bind up Satan and to release the blessings over God’s children. We have no excuses left when it comes to setting others free, including ourselves. Jesus paid the ultimate price on the cross, and the WORD says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
