This goes along with my last post. We need to know who our enemy is and how he operates in our lives so that we can defeat him! Recognizing these lower spirits who also carry armor… oh yes! just like we have the Armor of God, the enemy also has armor. Even as Christians or true believers we still fall short of the Glory of God!
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
So who and what are these spirits I am talking about? They are the negative thoughts and feelings that are put into our minds. We then have to analyze our thinking by asking our selves, does this line up with the WORD? or of the enemy? Do this before you even speak.
It all starts with un-forgiveness, then bitterness, doubt, then hate, then fear, then worry, until we are into more severe thinking like suicide and murder. In order to defeat doubt you need to defeat bitterness and un-forgiveness. Look at your life and ask the Holy Spirit if there is any un-forgiveness or bitterness in your life. Forgive them. The Lord said, “If we do not forgive we will not be forgiven!” Say the Lord’s Prayer every morning and every night. This prayer covers everything and read in my menu under prayers and the study on this prayer and why we need to pray it. Jesus/Yeshua told his Apostles to pray it, we should make it a part of our daily prayer.
If you are serious in learning about all these strongholds and how they affect your life please see my series on “What is Sin? How it affects you and your life” At http://www.youtube.com/user/barbeeznet There are 111 videos but they are all informative. Each segment is covered in several videos as I have a time limit if 15 mins. I do not have advertising nor do I have any monetization. The Lord of Hosts and His angels rejoice when even one of His sheep learn these concepts and apply them to their lives, which in turn helps us to live “Righteous and Holy”
