TOPIC:THROUGH FAITH WE CONQUER KINGDOMS
TEXT: 2 Cor 10:3-5
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)
Consistently, there is contention against the Kingdom from hell though the victory is guaranteed. Deception is the greatest weapon of the enemy to defeat believers. Among the three names used to describe the enemy which include
- Lucifer: Hebrew-haylale which means morning star.
- Satan (Hebrew saw-tawn): an opponent, arch enemy.
- Devil(Greek-diabolos) meaning slanderer, false accuser.
Out of all, the most predominant way in his operation is diabolos. One of the ways of the devil prophesied about in end time is deception (Matt 24:11).Many Christian are lighting wrong battles. He deceives for people to see that the principles of God are not true. He does fights the truth. Causes misconception among brethren.That is why to be like Christ or yield to the weapon of the devil is dependent on which kind of thought we permit( Phil 2:5,Ezekiel 28:12-14).While devil was arrogant as a deputy of God by thinking of being equal ,Christ in being equal submitted in his mind. Let the same mind be in you. Check your thoughts always and never allow any form of rebellious thought against God or man but freely forgive those who even despitefully use you. Forgiveness makes you like God and pride makes you like the devil.
In the armor to put on against the wiles of the devil, the scripture says FAITH should be above all( Eph 6:10-16).Your personal Faith is the certainty in your Spirit of the truth, the principles of God, the promises and the Prophecies. These are the ingredients to generate faith. It can increase to inferno level consuming all oppositions of the devil and doing exploits against all odds with excitement. Faith has process: generation, activation and the release of faith. It is by this faith that we conquer and recover territories.
I receive lights to your principles, promises and prophecies to build an unbroken faith.
