Yesterday we laid the foundation of the key things we need to do in casting down strongholds. We realized that obedience and our voice are key to our success in this journey. The book of Joshua stands out for us as part of this great feat. The children of Israel needed no battering rams and natural weapons to bring down the walls of Jericho as they obeyed and acted on the word, using their voices according to God’s word wonderful miracles took place on their behalf.
I mentioned that on this side of the cross, we are dealing with enemies that we can’t see. Let’s go to the book of Ephesians:
Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)
For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
One of the key things to note here is that we are wrestling! This is by any measure one of the most intense fight and Apostle Paul says we are not engaged in this against flesh and blood, not only with physical opponents but a highly organized satanic kingdom which is presiding over this present darkness. He points they are the world rulers. In other words, all those that don’t belong to Christ are under this Kingdom’s control. Let’s look at the Living Bible translation:
Ephesians 6:12Living Bible (TLB)
12 For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.
This translation calls the demons persons without bodies. They are seeking expression! When Jesus cast them out of a man, they were willing to go into pigs. You have to stand guard, don’t be impulsive on things as persons are seeking a door through which they can attack you. They have been around many years and know your blood line beyond your own knowledge. Not to ignite fear, we have the Holy Spirit as a Helper. The key is to obey and listen to His leadership!
Most of the problems you are facing originate here (spiritual realm) not in the natural. Before you blame your neighbor for your challenges, deal with the spiritual.
Luke 10:19 (KJV)
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.
In closing don’t be afraid, power has been given to you. With the Holy Spirit in you, you are empowered to chase thousands of demons.
As you pray today;
✔️Examine possible points where the enemy might have gained entry and control. Is it a repeated sin despite repentance?
✔️Are you battling an uncontrolled area of your life which seem to refuse your harness? Pray for deliverance from another being finding expression through you.
✔️Denounce the power of the enemy over you as you declare the total Lordship of Jesus Christ over your life.
✔️Renounce any area in which the devil might use to lay claim over your life: the occult comes to mind. Things you were made to do as a child or you did as a grown up i.e going to witch doctors, blood sacrifices, trying to evoke spirits of the dead etc.
✔️Search your home, are there objects linking you to the devil? If any found burn them. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal things to you. Tomorrow we will go deeper as we cast down strongholds!
