Divine Principles of Spiritual Warfare (12)

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

In this article, I will reveal the devil's ultimate strategy and how we can break his principles. Knowing the enemy's ultimate strategy helps us choose the best principle to employ when he pursues us. In the book of John, Christ Jesus revealed the ultimate system of the enemy.


The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 10:10 KJV

Our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus declared that the devil has three agendas.

1. The thief (devil/ enemy) came to steal.

2. The thief came to kill.

3. The thief came to destroy.

The question is, how does the devil kills, steal, and destroy. In my book, Visions of the Night, I have written into details how the devil operates in these three levels. In this article, I will briefly share some ways the devil steals, kills, and destroys.


How the devil kills

Christ Jesus calls the devil a murderer (See John 8:44). Cain did not know humankind can die at the hands of another man until the devil influenced him. The devil entered Cain when he allowed jealousy to rule his heart.

Cain murdered Abel in cold blood because he opened the door for the murderer (devil) to dominate his spirit and soul. Anytime you walk in jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness, lust, and ungodly anger, you open the door for the enemy to dominate you because the devil can only operate in an environment of darkness (misery, injustice, pain, depression, wickedness, conflict, and evil).

This is one reason we must hate Sin with a passion because that is one of the vital entry points of evil spirits. If you live in conscious Sin, the devil breaks and weakens your spirit. The Word of God will not make sense to you because your spirit and soul becomes irresponsive in this season.

Some people oppose the Word of God while others fight the church, attack, insult, destructively criticize, kill, and sue God's labourers in law courts because the devil has trapped the spirit and soul of these blind people in his spiritual prison.

God commanded Adam that the day he eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he will die. When Adam and Eve disobeyed the Word of God by eating from the forbidden tree, their spirit died. When their spirit died (became extremely weak), their soul and body took dominion.

The moment Adam and Eve spirit died, they could not stand in the presence of God. Their disobedience brought them to a realm of independence and self-consciousness.  They became uncomfortable and inadequate in God’s presence because Sin possessed them.

Adam and Eve's willful disobedience to God's Word killed their spirit. Sin corrupted the spirit and soul of Adam and Eve to the extent they search for another covering. In the beginning, Sin (a spirit) who lived with God became the lord of Adam and Eve when they disobeyed God’s command.

Sin rewarded Adam and Eve and their descendants with death when they disobeyed the Word of God (Meditate on Romans 6:23). I will briefly reveal some mysteries of Sin to you in this article to help you understand some kingdom secrets.


Some Mysteries of Sin

First, if Sin is a deed or a virtue, then God Almighty (the LORD God) is the originator of evil. God Almighty will not create Sin and provide a solution. God Almighty will be unjust to create something that will bring evil and later provide remedies.

God Almighty is Holy, and His holiness cannot allow Him to do evil. Sin surrounded the LORD God in the beginning. The LORD God knows Sin, but Sin cannot live in Him. You can recall in the book of Genesis that when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the LORD God said, “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:” (Meditate on Genesis 3:22).

God is not like a computer programmer that creates a virus (Sin) and then later creates an antivirus (blood of Jesus) to clean the virus (Sin). God Almighty created the tree of knowledge of good whiles Sin (an independent spirit that lived at the beginning with God Almighty) created the tree of knowledge of evil. This means there were two trees within the garden. One tree (knowledge of good) for God Almighty and another tree (knowledge of evil) for Sin.

Since God is not the originator of Sin, then Sin is a spirit that lived with God Almighty before the beginning began. If God Almighty created Sin, then God is not a righteous Judge. I believe God is a righteous Judge; He defeated Sin through His son Christ Jesus (Study the New Testament of the Holy Scriptures for more wisdom keys).

God Almighty was living separately with Sin in the beginning. Nothing existed except these four spiritual forces (The Heavenly Father, the Son (Christ Jesus), the Holy Spirit, and Sin). The Holy Spirit (the third personality of God Almighty) fought with Sin because Sin violated God's plans by conflicting with the Heavenly Father's decision (creation of humankind and angelic beings). Meditate on these Holy Scriptures.


In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:1-2 KJV

The Son (Christ Jesus) took upon Himself to sacrifice His blood to redeem humankind from Sin. Sin had access to Lucifer (later became the devil) when Sin influenced Lucifer with pride. If you read the book (Holy Scriptures) of Ezekiel chapter eight verses fifteen, you will find out that God found iniquity (Sin) in Lucifer, which means iniquity (Sin) is a spirit that can possess spirit beings. Satan did not only allow Sin to influence him, but he allowed the enemy (Sin, an independent spirit that lived with the Trinity) of God Almighty to possess him totally.

Like human beings, spiritual forces such as demons can possess them because demons and holy angels are without bodies. Spiritual forces operate in tangible things such as animals, trees, objects, materials, and human beings. Have you ever asked yourself why the Holy Spirit can live in you?

This is one reason a legion could possess one man (See Luke 8:22-33). Do you remember the legions Christ Jesus casts out of the man in Gadarenes who begged Jesus to cast them into the pigs? This means demons cannot operate on the earth realm until they possess tangible materials.

Sin is a spirit that can possess spiritual beings. Human beings cannot influence spiritual beings except by God’s Word, anointing, mantle, and power. Holy angels obey you when you are in submission to God’s Word. Holy angels obey you when they see God's seal on you.

Those in the satanic kingdom use strange books and charms to control demons and evil spirits. These evil groups (vicious occults, necromancers, Satanists, sorcerers, and evil traditional priests) sacrifice strange materials and supply the evil spirits' demands.

When the satanic groups meet Satan's needs, the evil spirits submit to the orders of humankind. Spiritual beings don’t obey men until they operate in their spiritual laws. Sin is an independent spirit that operates with laws. All his laws are the opposite of God’s laws.

Sin cannot possess human beings because he is a powerful spirit who lived with God Almighty before the beginning. There are times; God allows spiritual beings, either good or evil, to take on the form of human beings to operate on the earth realm for a limited time because the earth is the domain of human beings and animals.

Do you know why the devil and other rebellious angels have no redemption? It’s a mystery. Why did Christ Jesus (God Almighty) share His precious blood to save us? Why didn’t Jesus save the devil and his minions? This is a mystery.

I will reveal more mysteries to you in some of the upcoming books and articles as the Holy Spirit teaches me. Study the book of Genesis in the Holy Scriptures for more profound revelations.


So, the devil kills by weakening your spirit and soul. When he weakens your spirit and soul, you begin to resist the Word (Holy Scriptures). The Word will not bear fruit in your spirit when the devil weakens you spiritually. When the devil kills (weakens) you spiritually, you enter a realm of backwardness (confusion, prayerlessness, and pleasures of Sin).

Like the Federal Reserve and central banks, these organizations can print out money and use these monies to promote ungodly projects. These organizations control the flow of money in the world. When there is a lot of money in the economy, inflation will take place.

When there is little money in the economy, manufacturers of goods and services will be forced to reduce the prices of commodities because the law of demand of supply will affect the system. When this happens, the economy will swim in the river of poverty. Leaders will be forced to export their natural resources such as gold, diamond, cocoa, oil and many more in exchange for money. When there is inflation, the rich reign’s whiles the poor suffer. This is one reason Africa countries must rise and become one because, with our natural resources, we can manufacture, create businesses, stabilize the currencies, and build people's mind and country infrastructures to a higher dimension.

The banking system and secret societies desire to control the world and our natural resources. This is one reason the bank allows people to take loans so they can trap people’s vision and create more money for themselves. If you don’t build your spirit in the ways of God, you will lust after these organizations and become the devil’s prisoner.

To overcome this trap, read relevant books, walk in the holiness of Christ Jesus and barricade your spirit and soul with Spirit-filled prayers. Praying more in the Spirit and walking in Christ Jesus's holiness builds your spirit and soul to resist the devil's scheme in the spiritual realm.

Engage in spiritual warfare prayers because Christ Jesus has given us the power to bind all satanic leaderships and traps and loose all captives. We must deploy the angels of Christ Jesus  and pray that God will enthrone God-fearing leaders into every leadership position.

When you take in more of God’s Word, you supply life to your spirit and wisdom to your soul. When you are alive in the Spirit, you will always triumph over all the fiery darts of the enemy. When your soul is full of God’s Word, the devil can never break through your heart.


How the devil steals

Christ Jesus describes the devil as a thief, which means whatever the devil owns does not belong to him. The devil snatches the Word from our hearts. He knows the impact of God's Word in our life, so he will take the Word from us anytime we hear it.

This is one reason many Christians hear the Word of God in churches, market centers, buses, and meetings, yet the Word makes no impact in their lives. The devil sends his minions in the form of spiritual birds to steal the Word from humankind's spirit and soul (See Mark 4:1-14).

The devil will remind you of the injustice, inflation, oppressions, economic hardships, injustice, and darkness of this world. When you allow these thoughts to dominate you, he erases the Word from your heart.

The moment you operate in your five senses and ignore your spiritual senses, the devil clears the promises of God in your heart. When this happens, you become hopeless and vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy.

To overcome these deceptive systems, guard your heart with all diligence (Meditate on Proverbs 4:23). Protect your eye and ear gates. Don’t watch videos that will destroy your faith. Disconnect from associations and materials that make you lose faith in God’s Word. Feed more on God’s Word and confess more of God’s Word.

The more you feed, meditate and confess the promises of God’s Word, your spirit and soul becomes repulsive to the systems of the devil. The devil cannot steal from you when you protect your heart and eyes.


How the devil destroys

The devil destroys using our body. He makes us focus on the desires of the flesh and ignore the leadership of Holy Spirit. Some people have become prostitutes, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, queers, and womanizers because of the pride of life, the lust of the flesh and eyes.

The devil will use people to abuse you emotionally, sexually, financially, verbally, socially, spiritually, psychologically, and physically. When you allow these abuses to dominate you, you can become self-destructive, demon-possessed, a criminal or serial killer.

This is one reason people become offensive and greedy when they are exposed to excessive money. Some people also become destructive through poverty. Such people have no fear of God in their heart. The devil will use fame, sex, money, power, and the temporal things of this world to destroy you if you don't guard your spirit.

Some people suffer from bulimia and other strange diseases because they have allowed their flesh to dominate them. Such people do not know that the devil is controlling them. The devil has made some people carnal to the extent that they cannot discern the voice and leadership of the Holy Spirit.

Some people find it challenging to fast and pray for six or twelve hours within a week or month because the devil controls them through the flesh. Those into harlotry, gambling, drug trafficking, human sacrifice, fraud, scam, hacking, womanizing, and other immoral activities do not know that Satan has recruited them.

When you allow your flesh to dominate your spirit and soul, you will find it challenging to walk and live in the Spirit. You will be addicted to the pleasures of Sin if you allow the flesh to dominate. The devil can always influence you when your flesh dominates you.

To overcome this trap, find some time to fast and pray. Building fasting and prayer life will help you break the carnal desires. When your spirit dominates the desires of the flesh, you will walk in victory.
