"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them" (2 Cor. 4:3-4).
No man in his right mind would speed down the highway at 100 miles an hour past flashing red lights and signs that said, "Danger! Danger! Bridge Out!" But a man who was drunk or on drugs would.
Likewise, no man in his right mind would go through life and plunge off into eternity and hell, lost. But people do it. The Devil has them doped and blinded.
In the case of my Brother Dub's salvation, I realized it was the Devil who had bound Dub and was keeping him from being saved. So I said, "Satan, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I break your power over my brother Dub's life, and I claim his deliverance and salvation."
We do not have control over human wills, but we do have control over evil spirits that bind and blind men. I'm convinced this is an area we're going to know more about and take advantage of in the future.
Confession: The god of this world will not blind the eyes of my loved ones, because I will take the Name of Jesus and break his power over them!
