Do you remember the woman bowed over with the spirit of infirmity, in Luke 13:10-11 (NKJV)? Let me explain why I believe that Jesus went into court, and He healed her. “Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.” She had a “spirit” of infirmity. How did that demon get the legal right, to make her infirm? That word, “infirmity” means, “weakness and infirmity of the body and of the soul.” Strong’s G769
She had an unhealed area in her inner man. I don’t know if it was an idol, offense, or trauma. But, she had something in her soul, and that’s what allowed that spirit of infirmity to attack her. She had something in common with that spirit. Now, that soul wound was allowing a demon to literally bend her spine. Remember, you will prosper, and be in health, even as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)
Continuing in Luke 13:12 (NKJV), “But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, ‘Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.’ So, he laid hands on her and immediately she was made straight.” One meaning of the word “loosed” is, “To acquit one accused of a crime and set them at liberty.” (Strong’s G575) He was making a proclamation, because in the Court of Zion, according to Hebrews 9, Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant. He’s up there mediating the new covenant in the court. He said, “You are loosed” And that meant to acquit one accused of a crime and set them at liberty. He acquitted her of the crime, that Satan had accused her of, that was allowing her to be afflicted.
Jesus went to court for her. Then, He laid hands on her, and made her straight. What was transferred to her? Acts 10:38 (NKJV) says, “… God anointed Jesus Christ of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power (dunamis), went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil…” Jesus had the anointing of dunamis. One of the meanings of the word “dunamis” is “excellence of soul.” He laid hands on her and immediately she was made straight. Why? Because she had an infirmity. She had something in her soul that was allowing that spirit to attack her. And, the accusation in the courts was allowing that spirit to attack her. So, He loosed her from that accusation. Then Jesus healed her of the wound she had inside of her, so that she would have nothing inside of her that was in common with it, so the enemy would have no power over her.
Think about how many idols there are in the world. In India, there are well over two million idols worshipped. How many idols were worshipped by people in your bloodline, all the way back to Adam? Can you imagine if you had to go through each and every one of them, ” I bind you Baal, I take you to court Chemose, I kick your butt Nagal…” That would take you the rest of your life!
Over every demon, there is a strongman. The Bible says that when you bind the strongman, you can thoroughly ransack his house. Who is the strongman over idols? His name is the king of Assyria.
Now, remember that Hezekiah had some big miracles. The Assyrian army (185,000 strong) that was surrounding Jerusalem was destroyed in their tents while they slept. And Hezekiah was given 15 more years of life. 2 Chronicles 32: 27-30 tells us that Hezekiah becomes hugely wealthy. What did he do to get all those blessings? He got rid of all the idols. Now remember, he was fighting the king of Assyria. Why is that so important? It’s because the king of Assyria is the strongman over all the idols. The entire chapter of Isaiah 10 is all about the Assyrian king and how he says that he is the king over all the idols.
Isaiah 10:8 (AMPC) says, “For [the Assyrian] says, are not my officers all either [subjugated] kings or their equal?” In the demonic realm, he’s the king over all the kings. So, different idols were over regions and nations. He had subjugated kings, or their equal. Yet, he was more powerful than all of them. Verse 10 says, “As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols [which were unable to defend them,]” So he was saying, “My idols are stronger than all the other idols, of all the other nations, and all the other countries. I’m the king over all the idols.”
This should be very exciting to you, because now you just have to go after one dude. You have to take only one dude to court, because he’s over all the rest.
