How to Confront the Power Drainers.

 

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

2corin 2:11

You should not be ignorant of Satan’s manipulation. How does he operate? Any serious nation that want to win a battle will first sit down; that’s why Jesus said anyone that want to build a tower; will first sit down and count the cost. It means you have to look at the strength and weakness of your enemy, so that you will be able to win and confront him. The battle has been won and has been given to us; but you need to understand; that the bible says we are not ignorant of his devices.

What then is the strongest weapon of the devil; because religion has taught us many things that is destroying us, so how do we know how to deal with our enemies? People are full of all manner of satanic illusion and delusion things that are not real. It is just like the youth that are full of energy, the bible confirms it in ( Isaiah 40:30-31), God said youth are stronger than the adult; but it as to be channeled in a proper way. So we must be able to understand the satanic illusion and delusion, so that we can know how to conquer and put the enemy to where it belongs. We need to put aside all manner of tradition and religion, so we can enjoy the victory that Jesus has bought for us. When I see believers looking beaten and battered; it breaks my heart, because that is not the plan of God for us.

What is the strongest weapon the enemy is using against us? Before we can understand the strongest weapon of the enemy; we need to understand what God has given us ( that we have been empowered).

The strongest weapon of the enemy is ignorance and Mis-conception. If  devil can make you think wrong; then you will act wrong and if you act wrong; you will get wrong results. The devil specialises in doing that; in making us to either be ignorant or even when we know something about the thing; he tries to gives us what we call mis-conception. The “truth”, he can’t change; but he can manipulate our mind to see things in another way and because of that we believe wrongly, act wrongly and end up having wrong results; including the scripture, we quote it wrongly like:

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1Tim 6:12.

When the bible says; fight the good fight of faith; the religious people have made it look like fighting against demons; But God didn’t call us to argue with demons, that is not the plan of God; these demons have been defeated by Jesus, our own responsibility is to lay hold on the victory, the main work is to fight for our faith.

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck.

1Tim 1:18-19.

A good warfare. What is a good warfare?  Is it to fight with demons or argue with them? No! That’s what the devil has succeeded in making us to believe; as if were are fighting between two equal elements. No! Even when devil mis-behaved, God didn’t fight him; he only sent angels to deal with him. So when Paul said; that you might make warfare the prophesy; is not saying to go and fight with the demons.

What is prophesy: A prophesy is a divine utterance; giving voice to what God has plan for you. Some have made a shipwreck of their faith, why? Because they lost their faith; so the main battle is to keep your faith alive.

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2peter 1:19-21.

 

So you give your own interpretation to the word of God, the devil wants you to loose focus. Jesus was speaking to Peter; saying the devil has planned to swift you as wheat, but i have prayed for thee; that your faith faileth not. The devil wants to swift you, he wants to hit you left and right; but don’t loose focus, looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of your faith; not looking at your problem or pastor, but unto Jesus. As long your eyes is fixed to Jesus; those organ for balancing will stay and you put the enemy where it belong. So don’t be distracted nor quote the scripture out of context, don’t believe, just because your pastor said it; but see it yourself.

The major weapon of the devil is mis-conception or ignorance. Once your faith is intact; no devil can bring you down, because to do that he will have to bring God down first and that’s impossible!!!

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

1Tim 6:10.

Money is not the root of evil; some will say don’t make me rich, so I won’t sin against you. Who do you want to represent if you’re poor? Was Jesus poor? Misconception of the devil or ignorance is dangerous, so we have to be sensitive; so that we don’t allow this misconception of the devil to sell lies to us; because ignorance and misconception of the truth is the most dangerous weapon of the devil, and we have to fight it. How do we fight it? How do we fight darkness? It by light.

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Colossians 2:14-15.

He took it out (past tense), God fought the battle for you and I, he said he took it out of the way nailing it to the cross and having spoil, (what does it mean to spoil) Spoil is the terminology used in battle; when you fight and win a battle, you conquer, tie, demobilize the enemy and take everything that he stole back and restore it. “Having spoil” principalities and power, no matter their rank; he spoiled them, the demon have been defeated; not he will be defeated. So when we are talking about spiritual warfare; is not to go and fight them, the battle has been won; the real battle is to keep our faith. That’s why the bible called it the good fight of faith, is any fight good? Yes, because it is not a fight that you’re going to start from the beginning; it is a fight that has been done and concluded. The victory concerning your marriage, academic, business. . . has been won; but you need to connect by faith. So to fight the good fight of faith; is to stay in faith, until the manifetsation. So the real battle is to keep your faith alive; until the manifestation. Elijah prayed that rain should fall, (it was the same Elijah that prayed that there should be no rain), has he prayed for rain to fall; rain didn’t fall, but he didn’t stop until the rain fell, if he had stopped; there wouldn’t be rain. The battle that you need to fight now is how to keep your faith; until the manifestation.

 

 

Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first nto the lower parts of the   earth?

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Ephesians 4:9-10

He went down to contend with them, to destroy their hold, to make us free; so the real and wicked devil is the demon of ignorance. Everywhere knowledge is despised, people end up as slaves. Someone said; if you think education is expensive; try ignorance and you will see the one that is more expensive. Do you know that ignorance can block salvation?

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2cor 4:3-4.

Why are they lost? Because their mind was blinded, because of lack of faith; and lack of faith was a result of their ignorance of the truth; of the work that has been done for them. So the most dangerous weapon of the devil that we need to confront; is the weapon of ignorance.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Hosea 4:6.

“My people” means the people of the kingdom and they are his own people. So the problem was not because; the solution was still waiting for them, but because they were ignorant of how to connect to solution or they know solution is existing but they are connecting in the wrong way ( misconception of ideas). The bible says we should not be ignorant of the devise of the devil, when the scripture was asking us to put on the whole armour of God, to fight the wiles (what is wiles) it means deception, gimmicks of the devil. So ignorance is very terrible.

They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

Psalm 82:5.

 

What is darkness? Darkness co-note ignorance, so all the foundation of the earth are out of course why? because of ignorance, because they don’t know. So the most dangerous weapon of the devil is ignorance and mis-representation. The devil knows that Jehovah Nissi is our captain; and he has never loose any battle, and God cannot loose any battle; and that God is in you, but the only way is to lure you to abandon God,  through unbelief. Jesus said if you can believe; all things are possible to him that believe.
