A Loose Woman

posted in: New You | 0


While standing in my kitchen, I heard those exact words from the Lord. He was referencing a woman in the church, who was vexing my spirit over a natural situation, in which God had given me a supernatural solution.  But because she could not see, she wanted to engage in contention.

You see, there is a misconception that under the new covenant a born again, church-going believer in Christ cannot have devils.  Well, that is a lie, which comes from the father of lies. John 8:44.

Yes. Christians are saved by Grace from the curse of the law of sin and death by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. However, Christians can be earthly bound by demonic oppression. Matthew 18:19

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

        The word Whatsoever correlates to Matthew 16:19

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

To Whom is Jesus giving keys?

Matthew 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

  • The church is comprised of [hu]man kind on earth (referencing Peter a man); For the Spirit of Christ/God to dwell.

    • Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:23

      • [[hu]man], Greater is he that is within you than he [(spiritual) devil(s) within you] in the world. 1 John 4:4-6

      • But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Matthew 16:23

        • This is the same Peter whom Jesus just finished establishing his church.

      • And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which [is within that] cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a manMatthew 15:10-11

      • Satan walks to and fro in the earth seeking whom he may devour. Job 1:7, Job 2:2, 1 Peter 5:8

  • The church is not in heaven. (Scripture passage references the second heaven)

  • Going to church is supposed to be an assembly of saints in a local building.

    •  And it was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,  to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11

    • Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.1 Corinthians 14:12


  • Forsake not the assembly of saints. Hebrews 10:25

    • However, Wherever two or three are gathered in my name there I am in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20

So, How and Why is a Christian Bound if they believe in Jesus and he says to [hu]man:

  •  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19?

  • And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. Mark 16:17

  • For The kingdom of heaven is at hand: Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely giveMatthew 10:8



Still, don’t believe a Church going Christian can be bound?  Read the local news. There are adulterers, fornicators and substance abusers (who got caught) in the church; among the pulpit; and some have tasted death.

Internal Devils are external manifested works of the flesh: Actions.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest which are these: Galatians 5:19-21

  • Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness(lustfulness-debauchery-promiscuity, harlotry), Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

 Good News 

One Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman there had been disabled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was hunched over and could not stand up straight.

And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her,

Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

But the synagogue [church] leader was indignant that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath. “There are six days for work,” he told the crowd. “So come and be healed on those days and not on the Sabbath.” You hypocrites!” the Lord replied, “Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it to water? 

And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”  Luke 13:10-16


Satan binds. Jesus Looses.

You Can Be Loosed ToDay in Jesus Name!
