Prayer- "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds and every high and lofty thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. " The prayer of a righteous man avails much."
Some people would rather turn a blind eye that we are wrestling with spiritual darkness and they decide to ignore them,( thinking that those spiritual enemies will actually leave them alone if they leave the enemy alone). We have been lulled to sleep by ignorance , deception and blindness.
Persistance- is also a weapon. "But let patience have it's perfect work for it will produce perserverance. Knock and the door will be open to you, ask and you shall receive,seek and you shall find."
"Out of the mouth of babes, God has established praise and silences the enemy." When we worship and praise God the enemy is silenced. The music is the revelation. Music is a weapon! We need to fill our homes, businesses etc . with praise and worship. The enemy will be silenced in those places as he cannot stand praise to God.
"You shall decree a thing and it will be established for you." Write a decree and post it so you can see it and it can get into your spirit.
We need to choose which decree we will listen to. "Though we walk by faith and not by sight."
When God decrees something, the enemy goes on assignment to produce the exact opposite.
God is looking for someone to agree with Him and decree life into their situation.
Prosperity - is a weapon.
"Remember the Lord your God .... as He gives you the power(Ahsa) to get wealth." Ideas to create wealth. Wealth is compared to influence.
Who listens to a poor man? When we engage in spiritual battle, there is a wealth shift. ie. (When people came to know the Lord, they stopped purchasing statues of the goddess Dianna.)
Dunimas is (like dynamite) power - is a weapon. Healing power.
The weapon of Prophecy- . One of the most powerful weapons for the church because it connects people to God with encouragement.
"Father, You are putting keys into the hands of your people... that we come into unity and draw upon your Spirit to surge and turn things around . There is a shift in the battle and we are going to be employing the weapons of prayer, persistance, prophecy, power, praise, prosperity, and proclamation ."
What is spiritual warfare? Do you really believe that prayer changes things?
Why do we not sing these type of songs in the church ?
Onward Christain Soldiers. A mighty fortress is our God and The Battle Hymn of the Republic?
Jesus was a man of war and He accessed the power of God. The enemy wants to portray Jesus as weak and defeated but He is more than Victorious. He did these three things when he was on earth...
1. He taught people about God,
2. Healed the sick and
3. Delivered people from the devil.
In Chapter 2 of the book of Acts " In the last days, the Holy Spirit will come upon ALL flesh... And these signs shall follow them that believe, they shall speak with new tongues, heal the sick and cast out demons."
