Occupying the Air 2
(week 36/03)
Olubi Johnson

In last week’s article we saw that Satan is the prince of the power of the air, having control over the minds, flesh and circumstances of men, by spiritual death in the air.

The challenge of the hour is to dethrone Satan in the air, by Christians using the power of the Holy Spirit to occupy the air.

We occupy the air by daily (as a habit):

1. Daily prayer in the spirit.

2. Binding the devil in the air.

3. Releasing into the air the 7 Spirits of God.

The seven spirits of God are listed in Is.11.2:

Isaiah 11:2(KJV): And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

The Spirit of the Lord is the spirit of love so the 7 spirits are: love, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel, might and the fear of God.

These seven spirits are released from the throne of God into all the earth (Revelation. 4.5, 5.6), by Christians who have become spiritual princes. A spiritual prince is one who has prevailed with God in prayer and so has power with God and men.

Genesis 32:28(KJV): And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

Christians who have not yet developed into princes can still loose these seven spirits of God by operating under the covering of those who are already become princes.

The more Christians that practice these things the more control the Holy Spirit has over the air and the easier it will be for Him to influence men for good rather than evil.

While it is true that the majority of men on the earth are not born-again, so giving Satan control over the majority, the fact is that the spiritual power we release increases exponentially with the number of Christians who practice these things.

Deuteronomy 32:30(KJV): How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

So the power of the Holy Spirit coming out of the mouth of one Christian will counteract the satanic power coming out of the mouth of one thousand unbelievers.

The power of the Holy Spirit coming out of the mouths of two Christians speaking in unity and faith will counteract the spiritual death coming out of the mouths of ten thousand unbelievers.

So the more Christians who practice these principles to occupy the air the greater the power of the Holy Spirit that will be released to neutralize the spiritual death in the air and influence the thoughts, words, circumstances and actions of men for good rather than evil.

The purpose of this article is to inform the church of the strategic and urgent necessity to occupy the air at this point in time and to motivate and mobilize the church to do so.
