“…As for us, there’s no question-we can’t keep quiet about what we’ve seen and heard” (Acts 4:17-20 MSG).
The devil has never wanted the gospel of Christ preached and has been trying all means to stop it. He doesn’t want people to hear what Jesus has done for them and that’s why we have to tell everybody that the Word worksI once heard R. W. Schambach tell of his first experience in casting out demons. He commanded the demons in a lady to come out of her but they adamantly refused to leave. Defiant, the demons said to Schambach, “We’re not coming out and we’ll wear you out.”
“We don’t wear out, devil” replied Schambach. I want you to note that he didn’t say, “You will not wear me out.” His statement is another way of saying, “We belong to a class that cannot be worn out.” We’re special, unique and different from the kind of beings that could be worn out. Then he went on to say, “My elder brother Jesus defeated you on Calvary and He put His foot on your neck.” As he said that, the demon shouted, “Don’t say that!” but he said it again in spite of the demon’s protest. Finally, the demon said, “Alright, I know I am defeated, but please don’t tell everybody.”
According to R.W. Schambach, he made up his mind to tell the whole world that Jesus has defeated the devil. This is what the Lord anointed His children to do. The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:13-14).
You must realize that you’re the preacher in your world; your home, office, class or neighbourhood. You can’t afford to fold your arms and not do anything, while those around you continue on the hopeless journey of destruction, bondage, sickness and poverty. God has anointed you to deliver men from the bondage of the enemy, therefore it’s high time you be about your heavenly Father’s business, for many more need the message.
