Satan, You’re Under Arrest!*




This is a citizen’s arrest
For I bear on my body the Lord’s crest
Heaven is my final destination
And a citizen I am of God’s holy nation

Devil, you are fired
You will never ever be required
For all the calamities you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t want you around me, devil
’Cause you are Machiavellian and so full of evil

I am arresting you, devil
You’re so jam-packed with evil
I arrest you on reasonable suspicion
Of various counts of gross insubordination

Devil, you are fired
No more are you hired
For all the misfortunes you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t like you one bit, devil
’Cause you are conniving and brimming with evil

I arrest you in the name of Jesus
God’s Son who came to save us
And deliver us from your oppression
Following Adam’s initial transgression

Devil, you are fired
You were never ever required
For all the devastation you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t want you near me, devil
’Cause you are deceitful and busting with evil

To remain silent when questioned is your right
But of this important fact you must not lose sight
It would harm your defense if later you rely
On something you could have said today in reply
For the avoidance of doubt whatever you say
Will stand against you at your trial on judgment day

Devil, you are fired
 No more will you ever be hired
For all the catastrophes you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t like you at all, devil
’Cause you are sly and so satiated with evil

Your failure to carry out my instructions as a child of God
Appears from others to be a familiar pattern you have trod
Your willful disobedience amounts to a declaration of war
Enough is enough, I cannot continue with you as before

Devil, you are fired
You were never ever required
For all the disasters you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I can’t stand you, devil
’Cause you are devious and overflowing with evil

I now break your yoke, destroy your burdens and bind you
In the name of the exalted Lord Jesus who was born a Jew
Who on the cross of Calvary became sin and was of evil men slain
But rose from the dead and sat at the right hand of God to reign

Devil, you are fired
No more are you hired
For all the tragedies you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t like you, devil
’Cause you are a very bad devil

I scatter your assignments, your mission
I frustrate and thwart your goals, your vision
I deny you reinforcement of any provision
I bind you and refuse you any sort of permission
I forbid you my sphere of influence to permeate
I decree today, “Thou shall not within my space operate!”

Devil, you are fired
You could never ever have been hired
For all the adversities you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
I don’t want you around me anymore, devil
’Cause you are devious and so full of evil

Satan, in the name of Jesus I put an end to your repression
I declare that henceforth I am free from every demonic oppression
By the power in the name of Jesus I undo every satanic subjugation
With the authority in the Word of God I put a stop to every devilish domination

Devil, you are fired
You were not even ever hired
For all the debacles you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
In the name of Jesus I bind you, devil
You who epitomize all that is evil

From now on I say no to your suppression
From this time forth I exercise my power of expression
I destroy, demolish, and dismantle the power of concealed sin
I proclaim, profess, and confess that I am in Christ, yes “I am in”
For whom the Son makes free is liberated, triumphant, and victorious
Thank you, Jesus, for helping me in all things to become auspicious

Devil, you are fired
You could never ever have been required
For all the fiascos you inspire
I pour on you the Lord’s unquenchable fire
Now get thee behind me, devil
You scheming sneaky crafty cunning conniving embodiment of evil
