Jesus never said, I will Go and Cast out devils and I will lay hands on the sick church. Nope, Jesus said what? I, JESUS give you all power over the devil. you cast those devils out and you need to lay hands on the sick. for those who truly believe!
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. in Luke 10 Jesus says clearly I give unto you! speak to your problem Spirit filled people and tell it to GO… NOW
you know “IT” seems uncool today to talk about demons and the devil… well! they are real and the devil is still out running to and fro… all over the earth devouring souls… there are billions of demonic spirits walking this fallen planet folks. oppressing people.
6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

The Lord is fashioning a generation that is prepared to know what it means to manifest the presence of God in a way that has not often been seen in times past. To have glory encounters, to be “caught up in the Spirit,” rapturous (even translation) encounters—these experiences change the person.
They will know what it means to be “in the Spirit”—a visionary people, a seeing people, a people that hears the voice of God. Signs, wonders and miracles are a by product of these intimate encounters with the Lord, orchestrated and initiated only by His Spirit.
It comes from a heightened level of intimacy with the Lord Jesus
