We cast out devils in "HIS" name when we allow The Word of God to rule in our lives
Mk. 16 ... Jesus said ... 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In MY name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
You might read the above scripture and feel this has never happened to you.
But look again!
In MY name (The Word) shall they cast out devils ...
Here is an example of casting out thoughts of devil "in the name of Jesus" by HIS word.
A friend sent me a birthday card. In the card she put a note telling all the things she had been doing. She had visited her daughter ... she had gone to the wedding of her grandson ... she told of all the plans she had with her husband for the upcoming holidays.
I had no daughter ... no grandson ... no husband ... no plans ...
Instantly the Holy Spirit reminded me of the following scripture:
"Ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God."
"That's right!" I shouted ... It looks like I don't have a life but I do. My life is hidden with Christ. And when Christ appears I will appear HIM.
The devil would have attacked me with sadness over my situation except for the fact that the HOLY SPIRIT drove the depressing words away by bringing the following truth from God to my mind.
Col. 3 ... 1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, WHO is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with HIM in glory.
This is an example of how we, who believe, cast out devils in HIS name by believing the Spirit who is the SPIRIT OF TRUTH. Mk. 16:17
The devil is the father of lies, says JESUS, and there is no truth in him ... Jn. 8
He brings wrong concepts into our minds to cause us to be sad and depressed.
But the Spirit of Truth brings truth from God into our minds.
We choose WHOM we will believe in the matter at hand.
