We begin by agreeing with King David in Psalm 144:1-2 where he writes, „Bless the Lord who is my rock. He gives me strength for war and skill for battle. He is my loving Ally, my Fortress and my Tower of Safety, my Deliverer.‟ In the New Testament, Paul the apostle commands us to put on the full armor of God in Ephesians 6 as we ready ourselves to wage war against principalities, powers and rulers in the heavenly realms. Therefore we put on the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the belt of truth, the shoes of the gospel of peace and take up the Sword of the Spirit, while praying in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we war against the devil with God, His Word and the angels as our confidence, we stand in firm agreement with Jesus in Luke 10 where He said, „I saw Satan fall like lightning… I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.‟ We also agree with the Apostle Paul who wrote in Romans 16 that „The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet,‟ and we join with Jesus in His
mission to „destroy the works of the devil‟ according to 1 John 3 and to „heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free‟ as Isaiah 61 prophetically promises about His work.
We know that apart from You, Lord Jesus, we can do nothing, but we also know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. In view of this, we now set the Rules Of Engagement that the enemy has to follow. We acknowledge that Jesus Christ has all authority in heaven and on earth and we exercise His authority over this ministry session. We have no authority of our own; it is only in His authority that we minister, and it is by His authority that we now confuse and shut down the enemy‟s communication system as God did to Babylon, and block the enemy‟s ability to overhear discussions of the ministry team. We forbid any interference in this ministry session and forbid any attack on (name) in any way. We forbid any spitting, nausea or vomiting as well as any profanity or violence. We forbid you from doing anything that would embarrass (name) in any way. We specifically bind all spirits of confusion, running, trance, fatigue and drowsiness, and forbid them or any other spirits from influencing (name) or anyone else in any way during this session. We also forbid all astral projection, whether human or demonic and forbid any surveillance or monitoring spirits from operating. We also bind and curse all spirits that are sent to investigate this session or any of us who are ministering in order to report back to a coven or Satanic cult or group what they saw or heard. We command every demonic spirit, synonym or plural spirit in (name) or around him/her to come to attention and to obey when spoken to. We forbid any spirit from playing games, being mute or hiding when spoken to – including hiding in an underground bunker or in any way sealed off from our ability to discern. We flatten your hierarchies and cut you off from every other spirit, bind you separately and forbid you from receiving any help, strength, or information from any other spirit, human or demonic, and we cancel your assignments against (name). We forbid any spirit from transferring to any other person and forbid any moving to other parts or levels within (name‟s) body or soul. We also forbid all back up systems and replacer spirits assigned to rebuild evicted strongholds. We command that there will only be one way traffic of evil spirits out of (name) and to the place where the Lord Jesus Christ sends them. We command all spirits assigned to (name) to remain whole spirits and forbid them from dividing, restructuring or multiplying in any way. We cut off all spirits around (name) from connecting with any spirits within (name) and we forbid any territorial spirit or other spirit with any authority or assignment to aid those on the inside of (name). We command all spirits who have rank over other spirits in any part of (name) to pull out all spirits who are under their authority. We forbid any appearance or manifestation of any false or demonic Jesus. We also forbid any revenge against (name), myself or anyone on the ministry team including intercessors, as well as our families, friends, possessions, finances, pets, jobs or those of anyone whose lives touch our lives. We declare that these ground rules will be in effect anytime we or anyone else ministers to (name) and that they do not have to be restated. They can also be amended at any time by myself or anyone else ministering to (name) with his/her permission. These are the Rules Of Engagement and any spirit who violates them will suffer pain and torment without mercy. So leave (name) alone or you will pay a terrible price both today and on judgment day when the saints will judge angels. We declare these rules as established in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth – God Himself who came in the flesh.
And Lord, we also ask You for an increase of faith and gifts of miracles, discernment, words of knowledge and revelation as well as angelic assistance for the ministry team in warring against
all demonic spirits and strategies of the enemy. We ask You to set up an impenetrable barrier of angels around the property we minister on today and that You would send angelic assistance to help us destroy the works of the devil in (name‟s) life. We bless (name) with the peace of Jesus Christ and claim the power of the cross and resurrection of Jesus, that according to Colossians 2:15 has already defeated, disarmed and triumphed over all the powers of death and hell. We stand as rulers and victors today with Christ in His defeat over all demons, principalities, powers and rulers in (name) and in the heavenly realms. Amen.
