Power to Overcome

Power Over the Serpent


About the Book

The Bible says in Luke 10: 19 that “ I beheld Satan as lighting fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” . This verse of scripture implies that Satan the adversary has fallen and the children of God have power over him.

However, it is both ironical and unfortunate that many Christians still grapple with various afflictions in their daily lives, and do not enjoy the victorious life promised by God.  Many Christians are being bitten by the serpents and scorpions they are supposed to tread upon and are being hurt by the power of the enemy.

This book  teaches Christians  how to practically tread on Satan and completely overcome  his power. Using his life experiences as a testimony and reference, Babalobi writes on how Christians can receive and manifest the power of God to neutralize all powers of the Serpent, the enemy.

Power Over the Serpent is  therefore a compulsory reading for all those who want to extinguish the power of the enemy in their lives, through the word of God and the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It features insightful teachings on strategies and tactics for spiritual victory over Satan, backed with scriptures and prayer points.

    To all my brother and sisters in Christ,

    I know that if you found this website it is that true you must be leaving difficult situations in your life but it is just wasn’t a mistake that you came into this website and the Holy spirit guided you, so you can be saved. God is LOVE.
    Many ask this question how long should I be praying, or please pray for me, or it seems like God is not listening to me. I have been on that road before and I would like to share a testimony with you:

    To answer the question of those asking, how long should I be praying?
    the answer is simple you should pray every day and always. Prayers should be part of your daily task because it is very important for christians to pray, also while praying remember to pray for others as well people around you, your ennemies, your friends…..
    While praying please keep in mind that ONLY GOD CAN OVERTURNED YOUR SITUATION IN HIS TIME ( not your time but HIS TIME)
    No matter how hard, or impossible your case is, keep in mind that CHRIST is and will always be in CONTROL as long as you trust him and put HIM first in your life.

    For people asking to pray for them:

    Yes the bible says that when two or more people pray together, GOD listens and will answer. BUT it is also important to remember that JESUS himself gave us power to walk over snakes and scorpions. Yes as Christian we have the power to overtrone the satan in JESUS name.
    YES you have the power to end your situation whatever it is.

    For those saying it seems as GOD is not listening,
    my reply to you is: GOD is listening saying that he is not listening is a lack of faith and it us, putting a limit to what our GOD is capable of. Yes he sees, he listens and he knows even in the deepest of our heart.

    My story is simple, one year ago I came across this website while I was at the lowest point of my life. At this point of time, I stop believing in God and even stop praying ( when we do that I guess the ennemi is really satisfy of himself )
    Nothing was working for me, or any one of my family it was like our lives were running in circle, everything we try, end up failling no matter how hard we try. The oldest of my family is 30 no wife no job, none of my 4 brothers made it far in school, I am the only one who went far but very difficultly, sometimes I would fail my whole year, someone when the exams period were near I will be sick, someone I felt like I have to undress myself , out there and go mad, sometime, I felt like I need to kill myself….. ( I hope you get the point), also no one seemed to want to marry me, everytime someone tries, something will happen to them and the relationship just dies. I am pretty, smart well educated but no man seems to be interrested
    Everytime, my parents have money and want to use it for something good, or to help one of us, something bad will happen and the money will be spend elsewhere. It is like we were under control by some evil hand.
    I came accros this website ( no the Holy spiriy guided me toward this website) and I started praying little by little, at first I was like well let’s try, but I was thinking that God will not answer anyway because we have, been going to the same prayers for the last 30 years and nothing have changed in our life.
    Then Wonders happened via this website, God open my eyes, and for the first time in my life I was able to see as clear as water. The answer has always been in front of my eyes but I have never been able to see because I was spiritualy blind. Yes all our problem were coming from my grandmother ( mother side), yes my grandmother, this very lady who have been always there as if she was caring was nothing but the main person of all our misery. She is wealthy, she is almost a billionnaire and if you haven’t figure that one out, yes our suffering was giving her, what she needed: money and power.
    My mother is her first daughter, and she offer her , her husband and her children to fetiches so she can have wealth and power. The answer was right in front of our eyes we just couldn’t see it. That is one of the main reason why we should always ask for God to open your eyes so you can see. Many things happen in our lives but unless the holy spirit tells there is no way you could know.
    First of all we started to see, everytime someone is wrong in my grandmother house, she will fastly give us some money, and little after that our family will be in trouble and her side will be at peace. Also, she will turn my brothers into each other, or wish my eldest death. She was the one trying to break our family appart, break my mother marriage with my father. To keep a long story short she was the one causing every trouble in our house. But we just couldn’t see it. Also everytime you borrow money from her, someone bad will happen to you. She even said it herself that all of her ennemies always end up dying that why people should not really dare her. Also she never blesses, she only curses. Most of her children have gone mad, they are in their 40-50 but has never been able to work, they only live via what she gives them. Her daughter’s husbands dies( except my father not that she didn’t try but God said NO to her, she often says that all of her problem is that my father is still alive ) Our share was mostly suffering, tears and faillure on all level
    I started praying, little by little then got my mother to pray as well, then my brothers. Today is a year that we all started praying and I can assure you that God has work wonders, we accomplished a lot, all the chains, the cadenas have been broken in Christ name, and we are free from all wichtcraft today, not that they are not trying, they CAN’T because Christ has pay the price for our sins and all our debt and he is our protection against all evil plans and attacks.
    Today, I finish and my bachelor degree and my master degree in less than a year. Praise our savior, my parents who have been seperated for 21 year, have starting talking again, and making plans for the whole family, it is like for the first time they are able to communicate. my eldest brother have built his own house, in less than 3 months, my other brother is now working for an international business outside of my country. And less than a month ago, a doctor proposed to be and I know in my heart that he is the one, because God made it possible. He is everything I always wish in a man, he cares, he is patient, respect me, loves me, and most of all he put Christ first in his life.
    But it doesn’t mean that I stopped praying, more than ever I have to keep praying . Today , I can not see my life without prayers. It is no longer me who live, but Christ who lives in me. He has proven himself to me the only one I need. He is my Savior.

    GOd Bless y’all,
    and remember prayers are the key

    I stumbled on this website some weeks back, I must confess that I’m highly inspired by the some testimonies. I say a big thank you to the pastor.
    I have also passed through difficult time, though the occultic people are still trying but they are not succeeding. I started fervent prayers this year April and to the glory of God I’m seeing a perfect result. While growing up some pastors revealed that there is a particular person that has sworn with his/her life that I will not succeed especially in my marriage.
    Since childhood, I always have weird dream about my mother cursing me in my dream or giving me food to eat; most time I ate these evil food in my dream. I told her (my mother), we all concluded that some else was using her image
    All this while I was leaving a miserable life, I was very depressed after i had a still birth little did i know that it was my mother that was responsible for this.
    Though I have a gift of dream, i always see most of my ordeal in my dreams before the manifest but my prayer life was weak/low then. But to the glory of God after fervent prayers, the gift of vision manifest. It was through this that i know the source of my problem with help of my pastor whom i see as a mentor now. The wicked mother have donated me to her occult world: making covenant that it’s only after I joined witchcraft that things will become well for me, otherwise my life will be miserable( it is her life that will be miserable in Jesus name). I was on Prayer Mountain in Nigeria, that this revelation came. I prayed, cried to God that I have chosen Jesus that God should take my life if the only alternative that is left is witchcraft. To the glory of God to the shame of satan, my God heard my prayer.
    Note before this prayer, I started praying from 11:00pm to 3:00 as I was told that it’s this period that witches hold meeting. I learnt that 1hr of night vigil covers a day fasting and prayer. I’m employing this strategy as it has helped to overcome their witchcraft authority over life.
    To all those passing through difficult time, first you need to give your life to Christ, I’m not saying church goers( every Sunday Christians), a genuine repentance from your heart and try to live a holiness life. Let me use my self as an example here through my prayers God revealed to me in a dream on May 18,2011 that the way I dress doesn’t glorify him. I have burnt most of my trousers after this revelation and that same day he told me some dynamic revelation on jewelry. After that I have started selling my golden jewelry- this is not easy but I pray that God almighty will give me grace to be able to comply to this standard.
    In short, what I’m trying to say is that if you’re convinced that you have been tormented by wicked people in higher place; firstly, start praying at midnight by doing so witches will not have power over you and ask God what you should do for your prayer to be answer. Ask for direction and the source of your problem, then you will able to direct all your energy/prayer to the foundational cause.
    Note if the source is being revealed to you, don’t be carnal to confront the person but instead fight the battle spiritually.
    My God is indeed a miracle worker, I’m an example.

    Please i need help for my father, he is married to my stepmother but she is mistreating him embarrasing him in front of his kids and doing all wrong things, she is being so evil throwing bad words at us but my father won’t say anything to defend us his children. Play for him to wake up and see all wrong things happening in his house. My brother wants to leave home because of his wife she keeps badmouthing my late mother and i can’t take it anymore and i am sure the Almighty father is looking at my father and will set him free from all this suffering. I am so sad my half sister serve my father in dirty dishes and the mother doesn’t say a thing which cause my father to go hungry on bed because he is a tidy man and he works so hard to provide for the house, i live far from home with work and i can’t help him and even if i wanted to, his wife would never let it happen.

    Please brothers and sisters in Christ jesus help me in prayers.
