Who can bind? If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, you have his power and authority to bind evil and loose God’s plans in any situation.

Why do we bind? Jesus commented on the need for binding evil in Matthew 12:29. Jesus explained that we must first bind the strongman before we can plunder his house. When we are facing an evil stronghold in life, we must first use our inherited authority as children of God to bind the evil forces involved. After that, we can loose, or call forth God’s plans for restoration.

What happens when we bind? Jesus said, ” I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them” Matthew 18:18-20

When we bind something, we are declaring it unlawful (or evil) based on God’s word. Because we stand as co-heirs in Jesus Christ, we have his authority to execute this judgment on the forces of evil.

Our faith in God’s word releases the power from heaven that binds (or ties up) the evil we are facing. Similarly, when we loose something on earth, we “permit and declare [it] proper and lawful on earth” based on the scriptures. Everything that we loose or bind must be in accordance with God’s word.
