*** WARNING! ***
There is something that has become of a grave concern. From what has been seen in countless prayers (mine and of others), it seems to be clear that many aren’t aware that they are doing this. And so I feel there is a great need to bring it to your attention. This has been discovered through study, using the Word of God, the dictionary, and the Strong’s Concordance.
*** According to Matthew 16:19; 18:18 ***
Did you know that when you pray to “loose” the love and truth of the Word of God that you are actually praying for it to be destroyed or broken from something or someone? Did you know that when you pray to “bind” the love and truth of the Word of God that you are actually praying for it to be knitted, tied and joined to something or someone?
Yes, it’s true! I had to learn this after God showed me that I had been praying the wrong way for so many years. He led me to define these words in the Bible Concordance, and I was blown away at what I found.
My reason for sharing this is to make us all aware of the way that we pray for binding and loosing. Personally I’ve seen us (myself included) using the word “loose” in a way that doesn’t mean what we think it to mean. (Ex: “I loose the love and truth of the Word of God.”) It is my hope to see this change in our prayer lives.
When we bind the devil, we are not destroying his works, we are tying/joining them to something. But what? (Back to the pit of hell, I hope). To loose the devil is to destroy his works. When we loose God, we are not asking Him to be connected to our lives, but destroyed from our lives. To bind God is to be knitted, tied and connected to Him. (Ex: “We bind Your healing power to the lives of Your children.”)
Below, I share with you all of the meanings connected to the two words that I found.
• The first set relates to the word “bind”.
• The second set relates to the word “loose”.
I encourage you to look them up for yourselves. Search the Scriptures even. Do not take my word for it, but study it out for yourself.
May I make a suggestion?
Let us be very careful and specific about what we are binding.
We don’t want to bind (tie) the works of the enemy to our lives. But we do want to bind his works to hell, right?
Check out this sample prayer and tell me if you notice the difference in light of what I’ve shared.
This is not to condemn anybody’s prayers, but to shed light where there is believed to be some darkness on the matter at hand; that we may all grow and properly mature in Christ.
There is not pretension here to know it all. Constructive feedback is welcomed. The Word of God says that Iron sharpens iron.
It is hard to believe that Satan and his works will be bound (knitted) to heaven. But it’s not hard to believe that he will be loosed (destroyed) from heaven. #Blessings
