The Manifestation Of Christ ...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil (1John 3:8) God anointed Jesus of Nazareth to heal all that were oppressed of the devil. The Bible tells us this in Acts 10:38, "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him." The Bible ways many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all (Psalm 34:19). If the Lord delivers the righteous from his afflictions, then of course, it follows that it was not the Lord who afflicted him; it had to be the devil. Why would God deliver you from something He has set up for you? He delivers you from all afflictions because He wasn't the One Who put them there; it was the devil! The Bible says "...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil" (1John 3:8). Has He been manifested in you? If He is manifested in your life, He will destroy the works of the devil. Let Him be manifested in your life, in your home, your body, your job or your business, and He'll destroy all the works of the devil. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What He did for them back in the Bible days, He can and will do for you today because He loves you. Confession I have received Christ into my life, and the anointing in me destroys all the works of darkness. Every yoke the devil planned to put on me has been destroyed and every burden has been removed because of the anointing.
