Summary: The enemy’s activities thrive where his victims are ignorant of who he is and how destructive his agenda for man are.

  Study Tools

The enemy’s activities thrive where his victims are ignorant of who he is and how destructive his agenda for man are. That is why the Bible warns that we should not be ignorant of the devices of the devil.

Lack of knowledge about the existence and operations of strongmen has led to untimely death and avoidable destruction in many families. This clearly shows that in ignorance lies the strength of the oppressor.

This timely message exposes the power behind the problems many people are passing through today and offers biblical solutions to them. It is an eye-opening and life-changing.

Read it carefully and reap the inestimable benefits it brings.

Matthew 12:29: Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

This verse is loaded with the following information:

1. There is a power known as strongman.

2. The strongman has a house

3. He has goods inside the house

4. Those goods don’t belong to him; otherwise, there would have been no need to take them from him.

5. You have to bind him before you can do anything.

There is a power known as strongman; it is a supervising power over stubborn situations.

Zechariah 11:9: Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.

Many people are feeding their enemies fat. I believe that today is a day of great revelation and victory for you.

One man was attending a Gospel church but still had problems. Then he left and went to herbalists, pressers of sand, etc. He wasted a lot of money but there was no improvement. One day, his sister came and said she would take him to the most powerful herbalist and if the problem did not get solved, he should go and take poison and die.

When they got to the herbalist, without much ado, he told them to go back to the church. The man wondered and said he left the church to seek power. The herbalist told him that there was sufficient power in his church to set him free. The herbalist told him that the truth is that the power behind the man’s case is stronger than he is. The herbalist then quoted a verse in the Bible which says: “...when thou art strong, thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck” Genesis 27:40.

The herbalist told him to go and get power from his church. The man heard that scripture for the first time in his life, he was puzzled. He then discovered that the devil also quoted scripture to Jesus so, the herbalist too could do it.

The power behind the problem of this man was stubborn and strong. That is a strongman. Sometimes, the power drives people to despair and they will think that God is no longer interested in their case. That is why you should take the prayers against the strongman seriously and spend ample time on it. These are powers that will not let go.

Many years ago, I was going to see a man who was blind. I felt very sorry for him and at the same time angry with the devil. I took his case serious and rid of all his charms and amulets. I was going there every evening. The man who could not see me come in until I talked, soon, he began to notice the buttons on my shirt.
