Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Satan and sickness and disease are not your masters. I found that out many years ago.
In 1937, I read an excerpt in Reader’s Digest that got me thinking along this line. It stated that in front of one of the government office buildings in Washington, D.C., there was a little patch of grass about fourteen feet by twenty-eight feet. Instead of people walking on the sidewalk, they would cut right across that little patch of green grass.
They had worn out that grass, so the caretaker put stakes and a string up. It wasn’t very high. And people just stepped over the string and kept walking on the grass.
To fix this problem, the caretaker painted a crude sign and put it up right in the middle of the grass. The sign said, “Gentlemen will not and others must not trespass on this property.” And that stopped it.
When I read this, I decided to put a sign up on my body, so to speak, in my spirit. Now you can’t see it, but the devil can. It’s written with spirit language and spirit ink, and it reads, “Gentlemen will not and others must not trespass on this property.” Then in parentheses it says, “Devil, this means you!” That sign has been on my body since 1937.
The devil has no right to trespass on your body. He has no right to put sickness and disease on you. Sickness and disease are of the devil; they’re not of God. They do not come from Heaven. There isn’t any sickness or disease up there. God is not the author of sickness and disease, so you can boldly tell the devil, “No trespassing!”
The devil shall not trespass on my property. He has no right to trespass on my body. He has no right to put sickness and disease on me. I resist him in Jesus’ Name.
