Label of negativity

Drowned By Demons

24th May 2022

Scripture Reading: Mark 5: 21-34


“And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.” (Mark 5: 13)

Our Focal Scripture makes mention of a herd of swine that was within the locale where Jesus liberated the man with unclean spirits. That herd of swine was invaded by the demons that left the man with unclean spirits, and they ran down violently along a steep slope and were choked in the sea. Demons entered a business that was doing fine, and in one swoop, the business went down. Demons entered what was working, and it closed shop.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every satanic power that has come to drown the works of your hands, I command it to scatter by fire. Every wickedness from the pit of hell that has come to reduce your destiny to rubbles, I command it to scatter by fire. I command every satanic power that wants to cut short your progress to go down by fire. I command every power of hell that wants to bury your success to get out of your way.

The owners of the herd of swine were going about their normal business, oblivious of the fact that a mob of demons had demanded to invade their business and drown it in the sea. The fact that you are not yet aware of the conspiracies of the powers of hell to pull you down does not mean that they are not yet plotting your downfall. The fact that you have not offended anyone does not mean that a satanic invasion is not imminent.

Today, the Lord raises a hedge of fire around the works of your hands. The Lord raises a wall of fire around you and yours. The Lord raises a wall of fire around your career, business, ministry, family, marriage, vocation, children, projects, etc. The Lord positions you above the attacks of the enemy. The Lord positions you at the top of the mountains where you cannot be reached. The Lord positions you on your high places.

You are not like the herd of swine that the devil can easily drown in the sea. You are the redeemed of the Lord. You are lifted above reduction.


I will not go down; no power of hell will pull me down, in Jesus’ name!
