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- WHAT TO DO IN A DEMONIC INFESTED ENVIRONMENT .
1.The devil's agents (human 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 verbally or allow them to provoked 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 you for where the Lord is taking you to and stop the fretting .Hold your peace and do your battle in your closet .pray "hard" .Matt 6:6(Amp)" But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.
2.Listen , is no big deal . They will surely attack you fiercely. But let the truth (word) you know be your shield and buckler at such times (Psalm 91:4) .Now learn the key why you are being attacked fiercely . An enemy that knows his time is very short ,about to end ,what do you think would be his reaction ? listen, 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 . 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 . If it is not working for your good God will not allow it . you might not understand it yet , but you sure will later .only believe it ..3. After the storm comes the testimony ,
not before .4. you re being trained on how to fight spiritually . if you can deal with five demons , you can deal with ten and more when you are properly trained , something David learnt from scripture Psalm 144:1(NLT)" A psalm of David. Praise the LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle." . so see it as a training ground and deal with them using the word in prayer . Remember . Roms 8:37 (NLT)"No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us."
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 , believe and use it by faith . The attacks might increase , because of the effect.demons react to it , but you are winning . Don't be discouraged. Use it before you go out and before you sleep too, after you finish praying. The key is the word and what you believe "oil" will always work for you by faith . Amen. Matt 9:29(NIV)"Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you".
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 .Ex- father your word says in the book of Psalm 37:17 the arm (powers) of the wicked shall be broken , 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 go on and 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 , confessions , speaking in tongues etc. When the battle seems to be getting tough in prayers , you switch to praises . prayers- angels go to work .(Psalm 103:20), praise -God goes to work .( Psalm 67:5,6).
7.The blood of Jesus - from personal experience in spiritual warfares , the blood has potential powers in 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(Amp)" And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing]." 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(Amp)"and whoever breaks through a fence or a [stone] wall, a serpent will bite him."
9.Fasting- Is a very strong weapon to use .It strengthens your spirit to become more spiritually sensitive to God's voice and builds up your faith to believe the word of God . see more details from the book of Isaiah 58 . you can choose the time of your fast according to your ability.
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 .Amen. . John 15:11(Amp)" I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing."
Prayer : Father help me to stand strong now in the midst of my challenges in Jesus name , amen.
Have a great week ahead .Jesus loves you .
