Captivity means holding one against his or her will. It also means bondage. Bondage is an unpleasant condition or situation, which brings about sorrow, stagnation and makes life difficult.
When God arises, He will hold your captivity captive and arrest the arrester for your sake.
Types of Captivity
- Selective Captivity (Genesis 35:22, 49:1-2): Reuben was a good example of this.
- Partial Captivity- This set of people serve and love God, but are oppressed. A good example is Samson in Judges 16:6. It is not only about coming to church, but about the power you carry.
- Individual Captivity- This is a result of a direct attack on you, where the victim is used for experiments by the enemy. They are carriers of bondage.
- Collective Captivity (2 Chronicles 36:1-23) – Here we have: corporate captivity, family captivity and group bondage.
- Family Captivity – This could be no fault of yours, but your ancestors, family lineage and foundation. For example, if your ancestors have spilt blood or undergone demonic initiation, their actions have made you a collaborator. You must look at your family trend, some occurrences are particular about your family.
- Corporate Captivity- There are some industries where negative occurrences are commonplace like failed marriages.
- Spirit of Error – This is captivity whereby the person in bondage does not accept corrections till there is a repercussion.
How To Identify Captivities:
They can be identified through nightmares, alcoholism, sex addiction and perversions (like homosexuality), premature death, lack of help, uncontrollable anger, and daydreaming (having dangerous desires and emotional imbalance).
How To Get Out
1. Recognise the source of the problem. You must be very sensitive as a believer, ask questions, talk to men of God, and do not hide your problems.
2. Confess your sins and those of your ancestors; plead for mercy. (13 people gave their lives to Christ)
3. Pray aggressively with a sign of authority.
- Father, I plead the Blood of Jesus upon myself and my family.
- Ask for mercy over every work of iniquity over your life, loved ones and ancestors.
- Every foundational bondage holding me down, Father expose them in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
- Father! Every stranger hiding in my marriage, destiny and home, Holy Ghost fire expose them!
- Father! Every stranger hiding in my finances, business, and career, Holy Ghost fire expose them!
- Father! Every siege against my life from the womb, Holy Ghost fire expose them!
- Every evil load from my father’s, mother’s, in-law’s house, enough is enough, every owner of evil load, carry your load.
- Every evil shoe that I inherited from my father’s and mother’s house that is following me around, I remove you by fire in Jesus’ Name.
- Every altar receiving sacrifice in my father’s and mother’s house on my behalf receive fire now in Jesus’ Name.
- Father! Every strong man and woman, that says I will not prosper, let the ground open and, in the next 21 days, swallow them.
- Everyone gathering my blessings and virtues with demonic basket and everyone swallowing my prosperity be consumed by the fire of the Holy Ghost.
- Father! Wherever my matter is discussed, Holy Ghost fire intervene for me!
- Father, from the four corners of the earth, wherever my helpers are, let them locate me today in Jesus’ Name.
