The Weapons of our warfare

It was a sunny Sunday afternoon, I got home exasperated, desperate and eager. I was eager and desperate for the baptism of the Holy ghost.  I had just left a gathering of people who were thirsty, hungry and prayed for the baptism of the Holy ghost and many of them of them got baptized.

But for me it seemed like I was not baptized, so I got home, got on my knees and prayed earnestly for the baptism of the Holy ghost. The scripture says we should pray without ceasing, right? So I kept at it till I slept off.

In this state of rest is when God can speak to us because we are not distracted or immersed with all the noise in the world. In this same state of rest also, is when the devil could strike, attack his unaware victims.

As I slept, I had a dream…. I was accustomed by some strange looking guys dressed in black. They did not mean to do any good, I was so sure. My self-defense was to burst out in tongues- evidence that I had been baptized in the Holy ghost.

My prayers had been answered, I was baptized and my attackers fled at the outburst of my heavenly language. Who knows what could have happened if I was not armed with the tongue of fire.

I shared a story of a woman whose maid died in the middle of the night, well her maid was stabbed by her uncle in the dream and she was found on the floor in her toilet by her boss in the middle of the night. Helen came back to live through the effective prayers of her boss.

Our lives are constantly on the attack by forces, powers we may and may not see. Their main goal is to frustrate our faith in Jesus Christ, keep us from fulfilling the bright destinies set before us.

But by the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary and His resurrection, we Christians have authority and power that we under-utilize, that we may not even know of .

Here are Highlights of weapons/tools in our possession as Christians in combating the enemy

 

The name of Jesus Christ-
Because we do not fight it out with humans like ourselves, only the name of Jesus will these wicked dark powers fear and submit to.
More so the name of Jesus is a strong tower for His friends to hide in when under any form of attack. In His name demons oppressing souls are cast out.
The strength of the name of Jesus is inexhaustible.
The blood of Jesus Christ
Pleading the blood of Jesus over our bodies, souls and spirits helps fight against these wicked, dark forces. The blood of Jesus speaks for rights we have in Christ Jesus- freedom from all forms of bondage, oppression or attack.
The word of God
The word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. It cuts through where soul and spirit meet , where joints and marrow come together. Hebrews 4:12
The key here is to study, memorize scriptures to use in spiritual warfare.
The tongue of fire
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, they that love it shall eat of the fruit thereof- Proverbs 18:21
So a tongue laced with fire is one which possesses authority to send demons to hell where they belong. To have a tongue of fire is to keep a clean tongue and to strengthen it by praying in the spirit often.
Effective prayer
The effective prayers of one who is in right standing with God is a force to reckon with. You just continually do God’s will and be persistent in your prayers and watch how victorious you’d emerge all the time.
God strengthen us to fight the good fight and emerge Victors in Jesus name.
