6) But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands.

The disruptive messenger of Satan. Again, this is not speaking of sickness. This is referring to individuals (sons of Belial) who become a hindrance to the child of God. THE MESSENGER OF SATAN-NOT OF GOD Let us go back to 2 Cor.

In Peter 2:24; Col. 2:15, we learn that Jesus gained dominion of the planet when He died on Calvary. There He took away the keys of death (oppression, sickness and fear) and Hell from Satan. When Adam fell, he gave dominion of the planet to Satan. We, being in the second Adam (Jesus), are made more than Conquerors (Rom. 8:37) and have regained total dominion of the planet through Jesus' death and resurrection. COME INTO MATURITY Look at Hebrews 10:12-13. But this man [Jesus], after he had offered one sacrifice for sin forever, got down from the throne of the right hand of God the Father, went down to Earth and beat up demons.

Then he dies. Thank God we are not born full grown. Wouldn't you hate to be able to sting (be effective for God) only one time and then fall over dead? I thank God that we are growing up even as the Word says . . —into the maturity of God. With this maturity we will be able to sting a hundred times . . a thousand ... ten thousand times . Remember, Paul was not born full grown. He, too, had to grow—and grow he did into a great inspiration for all of us. NOT WORKING FOR US-BUT WITH US Please look with me at Mark 16:15-20.
