Conquering Controlling Powers David Oyedepo
The Law Of Sin And death for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.Romans 8:2There’s a law of sin. A force that remotely controls, subjects and brings into captivity innocent sons of men.Paul confessed: For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for towill is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.For the good that I would, I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.Romans 7:18-19,21,237
A law is a force. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.Romans 8:19-20It says, “not willingly”.Somebody has vowed to love his wife forever, this was on Sunday. And thenMonday comes and passes, Tuesday comes, Wednesday, and then on Thursday he says, “That thing you did on Monday, it’s because of the vow I made on Sunday, otherwise…”You know what is happening, the force is coming heavily upon him!And then on Saturday he says to his wife, “It’s important for me to let you know that you have to be careful!” Now the force is coming stronger, it wants to get him.Friends, there’s a law of sin. It’s a force, it’s a control! Somebody got drunk with alcohol yesterday and in his stupor, slept in the gutter! He woke up the following morning and found himself in the gutter.
Should he go to his drinking joint again today? No! But on his way back from work, instead of going home, he goes again on his drinking spree. That’s a man under the law of sin! He can’t help himself.You know, if you’re a very angry person, you don’t need anyone to say anything to make you angry; you just get angry over anything, whether good or bad, because of the bondage of the law of sin and death. It’s there in you, warring!“Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” Paul lamented!That gives you an understanding that we must have our own security in this spiritual conflict.
But thank God: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;)
2 Corinthians 10:3-4There is a way out!
