HOW TO FIGHT AND WIN SPIRITUAL WARFARE

There are many ways to fight spiritual warfare, as a soldier of the Lord. You need to get trained.

KNOW YOUW YOUR ENEMIES
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 Ephesians 6:12 (KJV).

KNOW YOUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF.
Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the Lord thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible (Deuteronomy 7:21 KJV). God Jehovah Sabaoth (the Lord of host) is your Commander-in-Chief. He is all powerful, all conquering and all-wise. He can do all things. He is capable, dependable and available. He has never lost any battle. You can trust him in the battle field because he is always there with you.

CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
You can only connect your commander-in-chief by faith. So believe in him, believe his word, rely totally on him and live in righteousness.

INVOKE THE FORCE OF YOUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
The greatest force in the hands of your commander-in-chief is the force of Mercy.
By this face you are protected. And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever Psalms 136:11 (KJV). By this force your enemies are in trouble. To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever Psalms 136:17-18 (KJV). By this force you can get your inheritance. And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever: Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever Psalms 136:21-22 (KJV).

KNOW YOUR ACCESS TO HIM
Jesus is the only access you have to the commander-in-chief. So fight your battle using the name of Jesus. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12 KJV).

KNOW YOUR WEAPONS
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 strong holds 2 Corinthians 10:3, 4 (KJV).

Your weapons are

  1. Prayer
    Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he answered them Psalms 99:6 (KJV).
  2. Testimonies
    And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy Revelation 19:10 (KJV).
  3. Thanks giving
    Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name Psalms 100:4 (KJV).
  4. Praise
    Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name Psalms 100:4 (KJV).
  5. Worship
    We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength Psalms 132:7, 8 (KJV). Worship takes you into the heavenly places (Revelation 4:11).

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter Revelation 4:1 (KJV).

 

WHAT WORSHIP DOES

ü  It takes you to the throne of God where destinies are being decided (Revelation 4: 4).

ü  It releases thunder on your behalf (Revelation 4:5)

ü  It makes you a man of mystery (Revelation 4:7).
It makes you a high flier (Revelation 4:8).
