The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit;
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven
And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit;
The holy catholic church; *
The communion of saints;
The forgiveness of sins;
The resurrection of the body;
And the life everlasting.


* Note: "catholic church" here means the entire body of
believers in Christ, not just one particular church.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." -
Romans 10:17 (KJV)
This page cites scripture from the King James Bible to prove that true
disciples of Christ have authority over unclean spirits of all kinds.
If you are already a Christian, you can have this authority, too, if you
give yourself totally to Him and forgive everyone who has ever done you
wrong in any way.

May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless you as you walk with Him.

We Have Scriptural Authority To Exercise Power Over Unclean Spirits, In
The Name Of Jesus Christ
If we are true disciples of Jesus Christ, He has given us the authority to
exercise power over unclean spirits of all kinds, in His name. These
include Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all the various sicknesses
and diseases.
Printed below is an official notice, from us to them, declaring and
explaining our authority over them, according to God.

Unclean spirits need to know that we have legitimate authority over them,
from God.

"And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus
I know, and Paul I know, but who are ye?"
(Acts 19:15 KJV)

This notice explains it to them.

If you would like to participate with me in delivering people from unclean
spirits, then I invite you to make this notice (below) your own, by
removing my name and writing in *your* name on the third line.

WARNING: Make sure that all the statements apply to you, and be advised
that there is real danger involved if you do not actually meet all the
requirements regarding faith in Jesus and forgiveness.

* * *

MY NAME IS BILL MCGINNIS. (Use your name here, if you choose to do so.)


These unclean spirits include Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all
the various sicknesses and diseases.

By myself, I am nothing but another guilty sinner, doomed to hell.
All the evil of mankind resides in me, and I know it from
direct personal experience.

However, I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and
I have given myself totally and completely to Him, even to
death and beyond. I know for a certainty that He is Son of God,
raised from the dead to be my personal Saviour.

Also, and of great importance, I have completely forgiven
everyone of all their trespasses against me. And I continue
to forgive all who trespass against me, even as their trespasses
against me continue unrepented and unabated.

Therefore, His dying blood has given me new life in Him, and it
continues to cleanse me from all unrighteousness, even as I continue
to sin.

So I stand before Him spotless in His eyes, worthy to be His disciple,
not through any merit of my own, but totally by His loving grace to
forgive me, according to my faith in Him and my forgiveness of others.

As His true disciple, I have power from Him over all unclean
spirits: specifically, to bind them, cast them out, and loose
whatever they have bound, in the name of Jesus, as the Holy
Spirit leads me.

I can exercise this power over them in person, face to face,
or from any distance, by written or spoken words, addressed to

* * *

These scriptures confirm that I have this power over unclean spirits:
First, I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and I have met the conditions
for salvation.

John 3:16 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 10:9 (KJV)

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the
Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved.

Next, I am continuously forgiven of my sins, as they occur. Therefore at
any moment I stand justified before God, by His grace, by the blood of the
Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, I am a true disciple of Jesus.
When He forgives us, He forgives us completely, "as far as the east is
from the west."

"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed
our transgressions from us." (Psalms 103:12 KJV)

He instructs us to forgive others again and again when they sin against us
. . .

"Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my
brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times:
but, Until seventy times seven." (Matthew 18:21-22 KJV)

. . . and He will then forgive us the same way.

"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
Father will also forgive you:

"But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither
will your Father forgive your trespasses."

(Matthew 6:14-15 KJV)

We are dwelling in Christ, and He in us. His blood cleanses us from all
sin, and makes us spotless before Him.

" . . . and the blood of Jesus Christ his son
cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7 KJV)

" . . . though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be white as snow . . . " (Isaiah 1:18 KJV)

Jesus gives His true disciples power over unclean spirits, including
Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all the various illnesses and
First, He gave this power to His original twelve disciples.

Matthew 10:1 (KJV)

And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he
gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of

Matthew 10:8 (KJV) (Jesus to the twelve disciples)

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out
devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Then, He gave it to His appointed seventy people.

Luke 10:19 KJV (Jesus to His appointed seventy people)

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.

Finally, He gives this authority to all His true disciples, those who
stand blameless before Him, by His grace.

Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) (Power extended to new disciples)

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power
is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even
unto the end of the world. Amen.

NOTE: Among the "all things whatsoever I
have commanded you" are included the
instructions to "heal the sick" and "cast out
devils" given in Matthew 10:8, above.

Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) (Power of believers to cast out demons)

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any
deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

This authority also includes the power to bind the unclean spirits and to
loose whatever they have bound.

Matthew 18:18 (KJV)

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Since it is the Lord's intention that we act against unclean spirits, He
will make it possible for us to do so, even from a distance, just as Jesus
did in the cases of The Nobleman's Son (John 4:46-53) and the Canaanite's
Daughter (Matthew 15:22-28).

"For with God nothing shall be impossible."
(Luke 1:37 KJV)

" . . . for with God all things are possible."
(Mark 10:27 KJV)

May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.

"All The Way My Saviour Leads Me," - by Fanny J. Crosby
ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOUR LEADS ME - by Fanny J. Crosby, 1875
- Public Domain -

All the way my Saviour leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His faithful mercies,
Who through life has been my guide?
Heav'nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him do dwell;
For I know whate'er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Saviour leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread;
Gives me strength for every trial,
Feeds me with the living bread.
Though my weary steps may falter,
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo, a spring of joy I see.

All the way my Saviour leads me,
O the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised,
In my Father's house above;
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages:
"Jesus led me all the way."

Prayer For You
"Go Ahead And Give Yourself To Christ"

NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I
speak it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it
the same as if I were actually praying for you at that moment.
(Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch
them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)

Perhaps you are a Christian even now,
You go to church and try to do your best,
You try to put His teachings in your life,
But still you do not feel that He is yours.
You do not feel the closeness that you crave.
If this is you, then say this prayer with me:
* * *
O Lord, I want you closer in my life,
I want you more to be a part of me.
I want the best relationship with you,
That anyone on earth could ever have.
I know that, "as we give, we shall receive,"
And so I now do give myself to you,
In full completeness, holding nothing back.
I'm yours, so you may use me as you will,
And take whatever things you want from me.
And now that I did give myself to you,
I pray that you will give yourself to me,
As bridegroom gives himself to his new bride.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
Away from the temptations all around.
I pray that when temptation lingers near,
The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.
