Binding

(Matthew 12:29King James Version (KJV)

29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

 

A day will arrive when Satan, “the strong man” will be bound, along with his demonic host, and we do not have to speculate as to when that will be. Revelation 20:1–3 reveals that Satan will be bound for a one-thousand-year period during the Millennial kingdom immediately after Christ’s second coming. He is not released again until the final days of the Millennial kingdom, when he instigates the last insurrection against the Lord in the Gog and Magog revolution.

Following the Millennium, Satan will be deposited into the lake of fire for all eternity (Rev. 20:10). Meanwhile, during the current age, Satan is “a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). The antidote for the believer is not to bind him but to “resist him, firm in your faith” (1 Peter 5:9 with James 4:7). Jesus Himself will bind the strong man, Satan, on behalf of His followers at a future time. He never uses believers to act on His behalf in this area.

 

It is my supposition therefore that the act of binding  Satan or his demons, although thrilling as it may sound and be dramatic it is not biblical nor is it apart of a “deliverance” ministry.
