Summary: One of the prescribed weapons to destroy the recrimination of Satan is prayer. As you stand in holiness,whatsoever you decree shall come to pass. You should bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience,when your obedience is fulfilled”.( 2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
“It is true that I am an ordinary, weak human being, but I don't use human plans and methods to win my battles. I use God's mighty weapons, not those made by men, to knock down the devil's strongholds. These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him. With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God
and change them into men whose hearts' desire is obedience to Christ. I will use these weapons against every rebel who remains after I have first used them on you yourselves and you surrender to Christ”.(TLB)
“For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For
the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete”.(AMP)
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”(1 Peter 5:8)
“ Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping”.(MBCL)
Prayer is a warfare. It lifts you from the level of the natural to the world of the spiritual. It transforms your mind and focuses it on the heavenly things for a better result. It is one of the weapons that can help you destroy the works of the enemy and its fiery darts against you. You are able to pull down demonic strongholds and imaginations that are against your life, business and family because you’ve obtained a weapon that is mightier through God. It is not a carnal weapon and so it is not man-made.
Warfare is the waging of armed conflict against an enemy.
God knew that you should encounter series of battles and oppositions on the earth and that’s why He has decided to equip you ahead of time. The Message Bible in Contemporary Language says in 1 Peter 5:8 that the whole effort is to see that you stay alert, so that the enemy will not caught you napping. So, you are a soldier in God’s army and to be a terror to the powers of darkness. When you are a soldier, the devil has no power over you, though he roars like a lion. You have a Lion of the tribe of Judah, the man Jesus Christ who has conquered him and has given you the victory and authority. You are to roast the enemy with the Lord’s authority. Jesus Christ has crippled the strenght and power of the evil one. He is the captain of the Host. Rejoice!, for he has given you the victory. The enemy you know has fallen!
“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 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 2:13-15)
You should understand that all battles are engaged in the spiritual realm. So you are seeing the manifestation of the result of the battle that is either won or lost there. This is the reason why you see many things happening around you. Atimes, you do not understand why certain things are taking place in your life while you confess that Jesus is the Lord of your life. Listen, any victory not gotten in the spiritual is not possible in the human realm. So you are hereby called to be alert,go for an attack to dismantle every satanic forces that is against your destiny. If you fail to stop them, they will stop you. In this case, only the prayerful heart can conquer. Pray to overcome!
