LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 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."
10 KEYS WHEN YOU ARE LIVING IN A DEMONIC INFESTED ENVIRONMENT .
1.The devil's agents -Are everywhere , running away without knowing what to do, is am attempt in futility. Key- They don't need to know you , you don't need to know them . once they identify you spiritually as a child of God , you become their major assignment for destruction .The key to living amongst them is simple .you never attack them physically or allow them to provoke you. Always be one step ahead . Key- into what Jesus said in scripture Matt 10:16(Amp)"Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves; be wary and wise as serpents, and be innocent (harmless, guileless, and without falsity) as doves." See where you are in as a training ground in preparing for where the Lord is taking you to and stop the fretting . Hold your peace and do your battle in your closet ."hard" .Matt 6:6
2.Listen , is no big deal . They will surely attack you fiercely. But let the truth (word) you know be your shield and buckler (psalm 91:4).Now learn the key why you are being attacked fiercely . An enemy that knows he is about to die , what do you think would be his reaction ? will fight for his life .Key- When it happens , you are getting close to something big , don't give up praying now . pray harder and more fiercely , using the sword of the spirit , which is the word to fight.(Eph 6:17) . Learn what Jesus did , when the battle grew worse. Luke 22:44 (Amp) " And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground."
3.See the other side of the story , so you won't get easily discouraged .1. The more the attacks , the more your faith grows in it (2 Cor 4:16) .2 . If it is not working for your good God will not allow it .3. After the storm comes the testimony , not before . Luke 21:13 (kjv) 4. you re being trained on how to fight spiritually (psalm 18:34) . if you can deal with five demons , you can deal with ten and more when you are properly trained . so see it as a training ground and deal with them using the word in prayer . Heb 12:11(Msg)"God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children. This trouble you’re in isn’t punishment; it’s training, the normal experience of children."
4.I would encourage you to use your anointing oil ,it works , especially if the area is heavily infested. Ask your pastor to pray over it and believe and use it by faith . The attacks might increase , because of the effect , but you are winning . Don't be discouraged. Use it before you go out and before you sleep too. The key is the word and what you believe will always work for you by faith . Amen. Matt 9:29(NLT)"Then he touched their eyes and said, "Because of your faith, it will happen."
5.Fervent prayers is good , but fervent prayers without a good knowledge of the word is not good . When you come into His presence , there is a need to remind Him again of what He has said concerning the devil and all his demons . Example- father your word says the arm (powers) of the wicked shall be broken (psalm 37:17), father your word says in the book of psalm 58:10 I shall rejoice when I see your vengeance . Lord avenge now in the name of Jesus "amen. and you do on an on , reminding him of scriptures Isaiah 62:6 (Amp)"I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence,"
6.Keep your praise on - In spiritual warfare , you use everything to fight , prayers , praise , confession , speaking in tongues etc. When the battle seems to be getting tough in prayers , you switch to praises . Prayers- angels go to work . Praise -God goes to work . Psalm 67:5-7 "Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him."
7.The blood of Jesus - from personal experience in war fares , the blood has potential powers of destroying the powers of darkness heavily . demons don't like the blood of Jesus . That was what threw their Master out of heaven the blood of the lamb . so always plead the blood over your self , family and home . Rev 12:11. (NLT)" And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die." Even when the attack increases , you are winning , continue .
8.Avoid sin as much as possible , you cannot defeat the enemy in their own play ground . Eccl 10:8b"and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him."
9.Fasting- Is a very strong weapon to use . see more details from the book of Isaiah 58:6" Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?"
10.And finally , never let go of that joy - If there is any weapon I know Satan does not have an anti-dote to, is the force of joy . How do you attack a man who is always joyful? Even if you attack him fiercely , you still see him beaming with a bright smile joyfully , thanking the lord . Amennn How do you....."hmmm" lol . John 15:11(NLT)" have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!
I pray for you , the lord will give you the grace to finish well in Jesus name , Amen.
you are blessed!
