 The Demon Jesus Refused To Deal With By REV KENNETH E. HAGIN.

In 1952, the Lord Jesus came to me in a vision and talked to me for about an hour and an half about the devil, demons and and demon possesion. 

At the end of that vision, an evil spirit that looked like a little monkey or elf ran between Jesus and me and spread something like a smoke screen or dark cloud. 

Then this demon began jumping up and down, crying in a shrill voice "yakety-yak, yakety-yak" i couldn't see Jesus or understand what He was saying. I couldn't understand why Jesus allowed the demon to make such racket. I wondered why Jesus didn't rebuke the demon so i could hear what He was saying. I waited a few minutes, but Jesus didn't take any action against the demon. Jesus was still talking amidst all these but i couldn't understand a word He was saying and i needed to, because He was giving instructions concerning the devil, demons, and how to exercise authority.

I thought to myself, doesn't the Lord know i was not hearing what He wanted I was not hearing what the Lord wanted me to? I need to hear that, i'm missing it!

I almost panicked, i became so desperate i cried out "In the name of Jesus, you foul spirit, i command you to stop!"

The minute i said that, the little demon hit the floor like a sack of salt, and the black cloud disappeared. The demon lay there trembling, whimpering and whining like a whipped pup. He wouldn't look at me. "Not only shutup, but get out in the Name of Jesus!" I commanded and he took off!

The Lord knew exactly what i was thinking, why didn't He do something about that? Why did He permit it? Jesus looked at me and said, "If you hadn't done something about that, I couldn't have."

That came as a shock to me, it astounded me. I replied "Lord, i know i didn't hear you right! You said you wouldn't, didnt you?"

He replied, "No, if you hadn't done something about that, i couldn't have." I went through this four times with Him but

He was emphatic about it saying, "I didn't say i would not, I said i could not."

I said, "Now, dear Lord, i just cant accept that." I told the Lord that He would have to prove this to me by at least three scriptures out of the new testament. Jesus smiled sweetly and said He would give me four.

He said "Not one single time in the bible is the church told to pray to God that He should do anything about the devil. The believer is told to do something about the devil. The reason is because you have the authority to do it. The church is not to pray to God about the devil, the church is to exercise the authority that belongs to it. 

Jesus continued "I've done all i'm going to do about the devil until the angel comes down from heaven and binds him and puts him into the bottomless pit(Rev20:1-3)

Now, that came as a real shock to me."Now, He said, I'll give you the four reference that proves that.. He gave me MATTHEW 28:18. He continued "First of all when i rose from the dead, i said " All power (AUTHORITY) is given to me in heaven and in earth But i immediately deligated my authority on earth " Deligated my authority on earth to the church, and i can only work through the church, for i am the head of the church and the church is my body"

The second reference Jesus gave me was MARK 16:15-18.. He went on and said "The very first sign mentioned as following a believer is that they shall cast out devils in my name because i have delegated my authority to the church. 

The next reference Jesus gave me was JAMES 4:7.. This scripture doesn't say the devil will flee from Jesus, it says he'll flee from you!

Similarly, you don't pray that Jesus will lay hands on the sick, you do it! Notice too that the hands are not in the head but in the body.

After that Jesus gave me that verse from James, my spirit told me the word there "FLEE" was significant: I Looked it up in the dictionary and found the meaning was "to run from as if in terrow." Then i knew why the demon in my vision whimpered and cried for he was terribly terrified!

The last reference was from EPHESIANS 4-27 .. "Neither give place to the devil. Jesus explained further saying "This means you are not to give the devil any place in you. He cannot take any place unless you give him permission to do so"
