Many of us have family members who are not born again, and some of them are born-again or church-going Christians, but they don’t have our level of faith. They don’t even know about CDA (Confess, Declare, Announce). Do you know that it is within your right as a believer to still SECURE THEM and forbid the devil from touching them? The Holy Spirit specifically told me that we should teach this concept tonight, and I pray that His purpose will be established in Jesus’ Name.
It wasn’t in the plan, but like I was saying, when you give your life to Christ, you are entitled to some rights in Christ Jesus. One of them is the power to keep your family members safe from the touch of the devil, whether they are born again or not. There’s a measure of protection you can give them, including healing, sound health, and long life. That is what we are about to discover tonight.
Let me start by establishing it to us in the Scriptures and then tell us HOW.
Job 1:10 says, “You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!” It will surprise you that it was the devil that was speaking here.
Who was speaking here? It said, “YOU HAVE PUT A WALL OF PROTECTION AROUND HIM, HIS HOME, AND PROPERTY.” KJV says HOUSEHOLD. If you are working in certain companies, some of your family members are allowed to be under insurance. You’re the one working there, but they are covered. In the same vein, the Bible says in Acts 16:29:
“The jailer called for lights and ran to the dungeon and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. Then he brought them out and asked, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? They replied, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”
When you are SAVED, your household is SAFE, but only a few people know this. When the flood came in the days of NOAH, God ensured that all his family members entered the ark. In fact, the Bible says GOD SHUT THE DOOR OF THE ARK in Genesis 7:16.
When the angels visited Sodom and Gomorrah, the angel took Lot’s family by the hand and were like dragging them out. I pray you will not lose any of your family members, be it sickness, untimely death, or kidnapping. THERE SHALL BE NO LOSS in your household!
Rahab knew her right, so she demanded that the spies spare not only her but all her family members, and Joshua honored it, as seen in Joshua 2:12.
In the same vein, when Jesus visited Peter’s house, He met a sick person there, who happened to be Peter’s mother-in-law. Jesus healed her. Do you have Jesus in your life? Then, anyone on the bed of sickness RISE UP NOW. Is there Jesus in your life? Then, He is in your life! Is there Jesus in your life? Then, He is in your HOUSE!
When Jesus entered the house of Nicodemus, He announced, “SALVATION HAS COME INTO THIS HOUSE TODAY!” Who is SALVATION? JESUS.
The Greek word for Salvation is SOTERIA. What’s the meaning of SOTERIA? “Deliverance,” “Preservation,” “Safety,” and even “Deliverance from the molestation of enemies.” Anything that looks like the devil rejoicing over you is CANCELLED now. Whatever looks like shame and stigma is OVER!
HOW TO ANNEX THIS FAMILY SECURITY INTO YOUR LIFE:
SHOW UP IN ZION: Zion is a spiritual family for all believers. When you’re a member and present where the word is shared, the covenant in the house rubs off on you and your family members. As mentioned in Obadiah 1:17, “But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”
Consciously bring your family members under the covering: Kneel to pray and call the names of your family members, bringing them under divine covering in Jesus’ Name. Command the devil to stay away from them.
Apply CDA (Confess, Declare, Announce): Whenever you face specific needs or challenges concerning your family members, find relevant scriptures and stand on them, confessing, declaring, and announcing the Word of God over their lives.
Imagination: Counter negative imagination with positive ones. Don’t let evil thoughts dominate your mind about your family members. Use the spiritual principles mentioned to see changes in your life.
