Divine Principles of Spiritual Warfare (11)


Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. This is lesson eleven on my teachings, the divine principles of spiritual warfare. Kindly read the previous lessons for a more profound revelation.

In my previous post, I introduced a book I wrote with the help of the Holy Spirit. In that book, I wrote some reasons Christians must engage in spiritual warfare prayers. Many satanic agents and Jezebels are operating in the churches, leaderships, businesses, and institutions.

Some of these satanic vessels are leaders on the church board. It is time we break their stronghold and open the door for the Holy Spirit to have His way in the church. I have realized in my spiritual life that anytime I allow invisible sins such as bitterness, unforgiveness, and lust to reign in my heart, the devil, gets access into my life.

In the spiritual realm, you will find yourself covered in great darkness if you live in sin. When you see your spirit in this arena, it means the devil has access to you. Some sin is conscious, while others are unconscious. This is one reason we must pray for the Holy Spirit to sanctify our hearts continually.

Many Christians live under the enemy's bondage because of pride, anger, bitterness, jealousy, and unforgiveness. The devil is a master scout. He has agents all over the world who report humankind activities to him.

On this premise, I am writing this article to help you become vigilant and stay stronger in the Lord. If you are not watchful, the devil and his minions can devour you (See 1 Peter 5:8-9). Christ Jesus gave us some hints on the enemy, and it is our responsibility to follow the Lord's counsel and become watchful in life.


Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Matthew 13:24-30 KJV

Christ Jesus gave us a clue that “while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” The enemy waits for us to sleep before he attacks. The devil searches for our vulnerable season and uses this time to strike.

Child of God, be mindful in the season of weakness because it gives the devil and his minion's the legal ground to attack. The devil did not attack when the man was active because he knew the man could defend himself.

In our Christian life, a time comes when we become depressed because the Word of God seems ineffective or we don’t receive an answer to our prayers.

In this season, you may become weak and give up on the faith. The moment you give up on your faith, the devil breaks in to attack. The devil can sow tares of confusion, fear, ungodly anger, bitterness, marriage divorce, pain, conflict, and pride into you when you give up on the faith.

The devil knew that the tares (anger, confusion, depression, and other weapons) could destroy the harvest we have labored, so he intentionally waits for our vulnerable state to issue his attacks.

Maybe you are going through financial constraints, marital abuse, economic hardship, pain, and injustice. Don't give place to the devil because it is at this hour that he strikes most. The enemy waited for the man to sleep.

When you sleep, your spirit and soul do not rest. In this season, evil spirits or holy angels can access you depending on the opened door. This is one reason some people receive strange attacks in the dream.

Some people become sick when they wake up. Others become weak, whiles some die in their sleep. It is the works of the devil. Apply divine wisdom in this season. I will write into details in the next article on the midnight activities and reveal the enemy's ultimate strategy to enable you to become strong in the Lord.

When you encounter challenges in your spiritual life, business, family, job, and career, search for the root cause. It might be that the devil has sowed some tares in your life to make you give up on your faith.

The devil knows it is the seed (your divine investment) that makes you stronger in the faith, so he will do anything to destroy the seed you have sowed.

Giving up on the faith will render the investment you made in the kingdom useless. The devil will steal the shares you have accumulated in the kingdom when you give up in the faith. Always check for the root cause of the problem and ask the Holy Spirit to give you the solution.

Using your limited knowledge to solve a spiritual problem is a disaster like the syrophoenician woman who spent all her money on doctors to heal her of sickness. Until she encountered Christ Jesus, she remained in her anemic state. All she needed was faith in the Word (Jesus).

The servants that reported the case to their master suggested they uproot the tares from the germinating seed, but the master (Christ Jesus) gave them wisdom. Solving a spiritual problem with unbelievers is suicidal because they don't have the Holy Spirit's mindset.

We don’t solve a spiritual problem with worldly wisdom. Fighting the devil with your resource (connections, money, business, family, and friends) is vain. You need the knowledge and power of Christ Jesus because He knows how to dominate the devil. If you want to see the wisdom of Christ Jesus, search through the Holy Scriptures.

The more you feed on the Word (Holy Scriptures); you become one with Christ Jesus. When the enemy attacks you, you will know the best strategy to use because you are one with the Word. If you are empty of God’s Word, you become a slice of meat in the enemy’s presence.

If you have the Word in your spirit and soul, the enemy will be powerless in your presence. Visiting shrines for assistance worsens the case because the people working in these places are the satanic agents.

The sorcerers, magicians, necromancers, occult, and wizards are in levels. If you visit these satanic agents' lower rank, the higher ones can break you and destroy you. The ultimate power lies in Christ Jesus. Jesus Christ is above witches, magicians, vicious occult groups, necromancers, sorcerers, evil spirits, and every satanic agent.

Don’t open the door for the enemy to attack you in your vulnerable state. Build a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit through anointed spiritual songs and meditation on the Word.  The more you fellowship with the Holy Spirit, the devil and his minions distance themselves from you.

If the devil has sowed some tares (unforgiveness, bitterness, jealousy, financial hardship, anger, pride, and intolerance) in your marriage, gather those tares and burn (solve) it through fasting, prayer, and counseling.

If you throw the bathing baby with the water, you destroy or kill the child. You save the baby if you apply wisdom. That is how to deal with the enemy. The real enemy fighting you is not your husband, wife, children, and boss.

The devil is using them as instruments to attack your faith. Analyze the behavior of the person and deal with invisible spiritual forces manipulating them. If you uproot the tares while the seed is germinating, you will destroy the seed.

Protect the seed (marriage, business, church, and family) with God’s wisdom (the Holy Scriptures and guidance of the Holy Spirit). When the season comes for you to uproot the tares (conflict, confusion, pain, depression, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness), the Holy Spirit will alert you.

For example, you don't settle a case when you are in a bad mood. You don't decide when you are extremely happy and angry; doing that will cause trouble. Wait for the right season (in your right senses) to make decisions.

You don’t enter spiritual warfare prayers when you are living in conscious sin. Doing that is dangerous.  The devil may know the impact of your decisions when you are angry or sad, so he will push you to decide in that vulnerable state.

It is like a soldier who has no control of his emotions; such a soldier or leader puts his followers' lives in danger. It is time you build the fruits of the Holy Spirit in you. Get my series of books for a more profound revelation.

You have a role to play to enable God and His angels to work. You have to;

1. Discern the season of vulnerability.

2. Discern the season the enemy sows the tares.

3. Build a strong and consistent fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

4. Build your spiritual muscles with the Word of God.

5. Seek counsel from trusted spiritual leaders.

6. Ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom on dealing with the enemy or the situation, or else you will destroy the seed.

7. Discern the season to take action.

If you master these keys, you will always walk in victory.
