The Power of Agreement


Matthew 18:19 NAS Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.


Agree (Strong's) sumphoneo (soom-fo-neh'-o); to be harmonious.

  • The English word Symphony comes from this Greek word
  • sumphonos (soom'-fo-nos); KJV--consent.


Agreement (Dictionary)

  • harmony or accordance in opinion or feeling; a position or result of agreeing.
  • a negotiated and typically legally binding arrangement between parties as to a course of action

God is showing in this scripture the authority we have “on earth”

Matthew 18:18 NAS  Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. 

I agreed with the scripture about salvation, took action and became saved.

The devil’s main purpose in lying to us is to get us to agree with a lie so it will manifest.

A friend of mine hear a voice in a Wednesday night worship session tell him, “I sacrificed my Son so people can get saved. Will you do the same with your son?”

I have dry skin and periodically hear that it’s cancer.

Why does the devil lie?

  • To get us to believe the lie, agree with it and act on it to produce death in our lives.

~Agreement with sin, doubt, fear, accusation, shame, disobedience will lead to death.

~Agreement with biblical truths will lead to life.

Spiritual forces need legal access to get to us.

  • We invite them in with our agreement

Biblical authority is not a contract made with a pen but a spoken covenant agreement.


Proverbs 18:21 (AMP)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

When we come into agreement with natural diagnoses we allow those things into us.

  • When a doctor gives you a diagnosis don’t just ignore it.
    • Evaluate it to see if it’s a prayer target
    • Be aware of what you are agreeing with
      • A natural or supernatural diagnosis


Natural wisdom causes us to agree with what seems logical or human truths.

  • Kids are agreeing with Disney stuff and it manifests in their lives.
  • The devil uses bad circumstances, our past, our hurts to get us to agree to get bad in our lives.

The voice of accusation’s primary is to get us to agree that we deserve punishment.

  • When we agree with accusation we allow the curses of sin into our lives.
    • If the devil can’t get us with the sin because of repentance, he’ll try to get us with accusation.
  • Accusation is based on law or rules.
    • Resist accusation with grace.


The positive side of agreement:

  • Agree with bible promises


Here are the steps of breaking agreements:

  1. Repent
  2. Break the covenant
  3. Command any demonic force to leave
  4. Reverse it by agreeing with scripture in opposition to the bad agreement.
