🙏 The Power of Prayer – Mark 6:7
When you google the definition of power, it defines power as “the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events.”
Jesus gave His disciples the power over unclean spirits. These included (and still include) both evil spirits that possess and the ones that oppress. Jesus gave this power to His disciples, including Judas Iscariot and many others beyond the Twelve – Luke 10:1-23. Evil (or unclean) spirits cannot possess the church as an individual Christian, or the church as a collective organism, but they can oppress either or both of them.
The oppression of evil spirits manifests when your flesh begins to have its way above the Spirit of God in you. This can also be termed manipulations of darkness. And, they include the 4 spiritual hierarchy of darkness as listed in Ephesians 6:12.
