Divine Principles of Spiritual Warfare (4)

Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. For some weeks, I have not been active in writing and publishing on my blog. A lot of battles are going on in the spiritual realm.

Remember me in your prayers because the enemy is waging a great war against the church in these last days, but with Christ Jesus on our side, we are victorious. Glory to God! The Holy Spirit has been revealing some visions to me to enable me to take responsibility.

Child of God, never neglect the reality of spiritual warfare because it is always taking place. Whether you believe in the spirit's activities or not, it doesn’t cancel the operations of this invisible world. 

One secret I have observed about the devil and his cohorts is that they consistently attack when they suspect the plans of God for our lives have a greater impact (destruction) on their kingdom. Child of God, don’t be discouraged in your spiritual life when you encounter a series of spiritual attacks because you carry great assignments in the spiritual realm.

Those who don’t have a consciousness of spiritual attack are not born again. Such people are automatic prisoners in the enemy’s kingdom. Another reason people don’t have a consciousness of spiritual attack is that they are dead and blind in the Spirit.

Some people are operating in some spiritual authorities they have not earned. As a result of that, they are always confused and full of insecurities in the office they are operating. One dangerous thing to do in the spiritual realm is to control a territory God has not given you.

I tried that in the spiritual realm, and I received heavy attacks in the spiritual realm. Child of God, never think the devil and his minions are ignorant of your spiritual authority and anointing upon your life. Most of the devil’s minions are aware of the spiritual power and authority you carry.

They can discern the level of your anointing, mantle, and faith in their secret chambers. I am not writing this article to exalt the enemy’s power.  I know how wicked and unmerciful the devil and his minions are.

The devil and his minions hate Christian believers with an unlimited passion because we follow Christ Jesus’ footsteps. The Holy Spirit has allowed me to experience a series of spiritual warfare, so I know how to navigate some systems of the spirit.

One thing I have realized about the devil and his minions is that they can easily discern when you are weak in the spirit. They can sense if there is an open door in your life. When these hostile forces discern a loophole in your life, they attack you aggressively with no iota of mercy.

If I should define the devil and his cohorts from my spiritual experience, I will define the devil as an entity that cannot show mercy and always monitors Christian believers' mistakes. I remember an incident in January 2021 on the Koforidua Technical University (KTU) school field.

I was praying on the field in the night. As I was in the mood for prayer, I felt I should bow and thank the Lord for His mercies and favour upon my life. Most often, some Christians think a when a believer in Christ Jesus prays for mercies, he or she is a sinner.

It is baby Christians that carry such a mindset. Let me continue with some of my encounters on the KTU school field. While I was on my knees thanking the Lord for His love, mercies, and favour upon my life, family, and loved ones, I felt I should open my eyes.

To my surprise, I saw a heavy dark brownish dog coming towards me to attack me! I counter-attacked the dog using the name of Jesus with some fear in my heart, and the dog departed into the bush.

I kept praying on the school field as the other Christians began leaving the field. Most often, I loved to be the last man leaving the school field during my evening prayers. As I kept praying, I saw a blackbird flying behind me.

I could discern in the spirit that it was an act of witchcraft combined with sorcery to attack me. I rebuked the evil bird in the name of Jesus and with some spiritual weapons.  It flew away from the prayer ground, and from that hour, I had some sense of inner peace in my heart on the prayer field.

After the prayers, I went home to rest. In my dream (middle of the night), I encountered strange beasts. As Apostle Paul wrote in his letters to the church in Corinth that he fought with the beast of Ephesus. I saw two lions fighting like human beings!


I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our LORD, I die daily. 

If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

1 Corinthians 15:31-32 KJV

In my dream, the two lions stood on their two legs like human beings! They were boxing with their two front legs, like how human boxers fight in the boxing ring. Later I understood that I was trying to take over a territory in the spirit; the Lord has not commanded me to take over.

I can also interpret the dream in two ways. It is either; the lions represent the Heavenly Father or the devil. I know how lions fight in real life because I have watched several wildlife videos. The lions I saw in my dream were not fighting like the lions I saw in the wildlife documentary videos. These lions were fighting fiercely like human beings in the spirit.

This means the lions may represent Kings or princes fighting over territories.  One important spiritual law you must know in spiritual warfare is that you don’t enter into warfare if you are not born again. Being born again means you have repented and confessed Christ Jesus as your Savior and Lord of your life.

Without the seal of Christ Jesus blood on your spiritual garment, you are not qualified to face the devil in battle. The devil and his minions know a man or a woman who is born again. There are a lot of identifying marks the devil and his minions recognizes on a genuinely Spirit-filled Christian.

When I talk of a Spirit-filled Christian, I mean Christians who allow the fruits of the Holy Spirit to flow in their lives. It is not carnal Christians who only dress to show others how fashionable they are.

If you don’t have any relationship with the Holy Spirit, some demons will not respond to your command because they see you as an empty vessel in the spiritual realm. Your words will not carry any spiritual power if you are a carnal and nominal Christian.

This is one reason some people mention the name of Jesus in spiritual warfare, and yet nothing happens. Such Christians have no fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Don’t repeat the mistake the visionless Jews and the sons of the Ephesus chief priest made. The evil spirits could discern their spiritual state.


Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 

And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? 

And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Acts 19:13-16 KJV

The evil spirits declared they know Paul and Jesus. The evil spirits did not have any records on their spiritual power in these people's lives, so they attacked these ignorant and blind vessels with insanity.

Even in the kingdom of darkness, before an agent of the devil attacks the opponent, he checks the spiritual level of the opponent. If these demonic forces detect that you are weak, they attack. Surround yourself with God’s presence (Holy Spirit). If you are not born again, pray the prayer of salvation below because, without the garment of Jesus Christ, you are always open to the attacks of the devil and his cohorts.
