BREAKING THE EVIL LAWS
TEXT: Est 1:1-19
Just the same way we have godly laws, is the same way there are evil laws.
Evil laws are systems of spiritual rules the devil uses to influence, interrupt and determine the outcome of peoples destinies. These are laws established in the realms of the spirit by the devil against people for their downfall.
THREE BIBLICAL CHARACTERS
Esther 1:15 “What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?”
Concerning Vashti, this kind of evil law was used against her, and that brought about her downfall.
When you study your bible well, you will discover that Vashti didn’t steal, commit adultery, kill, etc, her offence was that she didn’t answer her husband when she was called which every woman may have done for one reason or the other. But that was what the enemy capitalized on and by the use of this evil law displaced Vashti from her position as the queen. May that not be your portion.
The same law was used against Esther.
Esther was prevented by the law from coming in to see the king. This is because the devil had already planned on killing all the Jews. So from the spirit down to physical, they used that law to block her from seeing the king.
Esther 4::10-11 “Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai; All the king’s servants, and the people of the king’s provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or women, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days.
So you see, these evil laws are set up against the children of God. The truth remains that if not that God through Mordecai, caused Esther to alter that law, all the Jews would have died.
Vashti couldn’t alter it because she doesn’t have any “Modecai” in her life. Esther through prayers altered it unlike Vashti that didn’t pray.
One more person they set up this law against was Daniel
Daniel 6:8-9 “Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
This law was set again against Daniel. Now you must understand If the devil can use this law against people like Mordecai, Esther and Daniel, then he can use it against anybody. And that is why you must pray.
Concerning Daniel, having seen that the law had been set up, like Esther he prayed. So you see, the key to altering such wicked physical and spiritual laws is prayer. Daniel through prayers, altered it
Daniel 6:10 “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed (that is, when he heard that the law has been established), he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
THE EFFECT OF THIS EVIL LAW
- It can have a negative influence on people’s attitude. Let’s see Esther 1:8
“And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel:..”
Here, that same law determined how far anyone can drink. The bible confirmed in verse 10 that the king got high as a result of the wine. And the bible says in Proverbs 31 that wine is not for kings but because the law backed it up, he got drunk.
It is a law that can make a man to engage in what he ought not to have done. It has a way of altering a man’s behaviour.
- Evil laws are used to bring people down. The law was used against Vashti to bring her down
- Evil law can make someone to lose his position.
Esther 1:19 If it pleases the king, let there go a royal commandment from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, that it be not altered, That Vashti come no more before king Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate unto another that is better than she
Vashti lost her position as a result of evil law. Vashti also lost her royal estate… That speaks of a man’s possession…
- In the name of Jesus, let every law the enemy has activated to use and bring me down from my exalted position be nullified.
That is the law the enemy can use to cause a woman to lose her position as a wife
The enemy can use such spiritual evil law to make someone lose his position in his place of work.
The bible says in Esther 1:15; “What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law…”
- Let whatsoever the devil has proposed to do against me according to his evil laws be thwarted now in the name of Jesus
- It is used to interrupt a man’s prophetic destiny… Declare;
- In the name of Jesus, let every evil law that has been established or activated to be used to interrupt my destiny be abolished now.
- Evil law brings about painful displacement.
Vashti was displaced, you shall not be displaced in the name of Jesus
Your possession shall not be given to another in the name of Jesus. That was what they did to Vashti. They said, “let her royal estate be given to another.”
- O Lord I decree in your name that both my position and possession are secured against the effect of the evil laws of the devil
- Evil law can make your helpers to be incapacitated of helping you in times of need.
Dan 6:12-14: Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king’s decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
13. Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
14. Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Even the king could not help Daniel in the face of that evil law. The king in his capacity set himself to deliver Daniel but that law incapacitated him.
Also Concerning Esther, that law prevented the king from seeing anybody including his wife because the devil knew that it is only the king that could help but the law stopped him from seeing anyone.
Mordecai sent a message to Esther hoping that Esther will through her position help, but unfortunately, Esther’s first reply was discouraging. Esther being a queen, couldn’t do anything because that law was already at work. Esther said to Mordecai, this law can’t allow me to see the king, moreover, for 30days, this same law has kept me out of the king’s presence.
- Pray and say God let every law the devil wants to use to incapacitate my helpers be destroyed
Look at the scripture below again.
Esther 4:11: All the king’s servants, and the people of the king’s provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or women, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days.
That was the law that stopped Esther initially from seeing the king. Esther was under the influence of that law but God used Mordecai to deliver her.
- Evil law empowers a man’s enemy against him.
Haman was empowered by that evil law against the Jews. Haman used the king’s ring to established a decree he would have used to destroy all the Jews.
Also concerning Daniel let’s read…
Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
This was the law that empowered Daniel’s enemy against him if not that the Lord intervened.
- Let every law of the devil that has been activated to influence my attitude or behaviour against the will of God tonight be abolished.
- In the name of Jesus, I declare that my life shall not be controlled or influenced by evil laws.
- In the name of Jesus let every stronghold of addiction in my life that is empowered by the evil laws be destroyed.
- By the power in the name of Jesus, I command the nullification of all the effects of the evil laws in my life in the name of Jesus.
- When that law was altered, Modecai advanced, today in the name of Jesus by the breaking of this law in my life, I shall experience advancement.
- When the Law was altered, Daniel prospered, today in the name of Jesus I command my prosperity.
- Daniel 6:25 says“Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.” When that evil law was altered peace was multiplied. O Lord I pray, may I experience the multiplicity of your peace in all the areas of my life.
- Today under God, I establish the laws of God to be at work in my life. Because the wicked laws of the devil are judged in my life, I now establish and enforce the laws of God
- Now say, let every Haman that has been empowered by the evil law to bring about destructive effect in my life be frustrated.
