2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
2 Corinthians 10:5 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;

Anyone who focuses only on the flesh becomes a great weapon in the hands of the enemy. Most people only focus on the flesh because the enemy has limited their thought patterns. I divide every human being into three categories because the Word of God says so (See 1 Thessalonians 5:23). 

Man is a spirit, he has a soul, and the soul lives in the body because God is a Spirit; He has a Soul and a Body. He created us in His image and likeness. Animals and angels were partially created in the image and after the likeness of God. God made the angels with fire and wind (See Psalm 104:4, Hebrews 1:7, Exodus 3:2). 

For the trees, animals, and other creatures, God commanded them to appear by His Word (See Genesis chapter one). Our spirit connects with the Holy Spirit. Our body connects with physical things on this planet, whiles our soul connects men emotionally and logically.

Our souls can connect to animals because they have instincts. The other creation responds to the command of God through the Word. Our soul mainly comprises our emotions, will, and intellect. With our soul, we understand love, wickedness, joy, and any emotion we can think of.

This makes man different from the angels and the other creatures of God. God became a man and dwelt among us(See John 1:1-14,  1 Timothy 3:16). God expressed his feelings to other men when He became a man, which means God has a soul (See Isaiah 1:14; 42:1).

The devil knows that the soul of man plays a vital role in the service of the Lord; therefore, he tries his best to attack the soul of man. The devil projects lustful and suicidal thoughts into man's mind because he knows that a distracted mind cannot serve the Lord faithfully.

The devil tries to create negative ideas about the goodness and justice of God. The devil creates a false idea in our minds that God is dead. Other times the devil will create a strong belief in our minds and heart that God is not righteous in His dealings. Other times the devil will project negative thoughts into the mind of people that Jesus Christ was an ordinary man.

You will accept the devil's lies if you are not rooted in the Word. It becomes a stronghold if these thoughts enter your soul for several years. Other times the devil will use culture and the wisdom of the world to create a stronghold in the mind of people.

For example, the devil can project negative thoughts such as fornication, abortion, lesbianism, gay, incest, and murder as good things. If your mind is not protected by the Word, you will accept these thoughts, and when this thought enters deeply into your mind, it creates a false belief within your logical system.

When this happens, it becomes difficult to break these abominable thoughts. The devil creates these thoughts in the soul of man through the media, the internet, friends, schools, institutions, leaders in various organizations, close relatives, and his secret agents.

This reasoning challenges the knowledge and the wisdom of God. The devil uses technology to downgrade the power of God. I am not against technology, but some technological advancement brings glory to the devil and challenges the wisdom of God.

For example, the people who manufacture weapons and bombs. Some people even transplant the female system into men, automatically making them women. This is a great disease and an extreme wickedness in the sight of God

Apostle Paul is saying that the best way to break these strongholds is to cast them down. The question is, how do we cast down and destroy these bad ideas and false reasoning? The best way to cast away these thoughts is to apply the Word of God because the Word is a spiritual hammer that destroys every enemy's stronghold.

The Word is alive and active if you speak them out with faith. The Word can transform and convert our minds when we faithfully feed and practice it. Prayer is another dynamite weapon every believer can use alongside the Word.
