Divine Principles of Spiritual warfare (20)


Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. In Proverbs chapter twenty-four verses five, Solomon the wise man declares that “A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.”

This should let you understand that knowledge makes us grow in power, wealth, might, and value. If you lack knowledge, you become weak and vulnerable in life. A man of knowledge easily breaks limitations and advances in life.


More Profound Revelations on the Word of God (Holy Scriptures)

In my previous article, I gave out some profound revelations about the Word and how the Word operates in the season of spiritual warfare. I want to throw more light on the Word and how the Word works in the season of spiritual warfare. In Hebrews chapter four verses twelve, Apostle Paul wrote to a sect of Jewish believers in Christ Jesus.


For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 KJV

No instrument in this world can accurately dissect the thoughts of the human spirit, soul, and body. Scientists and other researchers can only experiment on the human body. It takes the Word to differentiate the thoughts of our spirits, soul, and body.

Every human goes through emotional cycles (loneliness, pain, anger, joy, confusion, depression, love, hatred, fear, and peace). No scientist or researcher can physically see and touch these emotions, but they can feel them.

No scientist or researcher can see and touch life, but they can experience it. We can only understand these emotions and the purpose of life by the Word. It takes the Word of God to separate the thoughts of the human soul, spirit, and body.

Nobody can accurately know what you think except the Word (Christ Jesus), the Holy Spirit, and the Heavenly Father. In the season of spiritual warfare, your soul, spirit, and body can generate thoughts to help you makes decisions.

The Holy Spirit can generate thoughts to help you make decisions. The devil and his cohorts can generate thoughts to help you make decisions. In this season of warfare, no one can help you make the perfect decision.

You need the Word to help you discern which voice is influencing you. If you allow the voice of the soul and flesh to control you, you can miss the path of God and fall into the trap of the enemy.

It takes the Word of God to help you discover which voice to accept and ignore. If you lack God’s Word in your heart, you become vulnerable to the devices of the enemy. You can get my book, How to Walk and live in the Spirit, for more profound revelations on the spirit, soul, body, and Holy Spirit.

Knowing who you are in Christ Jesus is one of the best master key in spiritual warfare. The more you know about Christ Jesus, the greater your faith. If you know the power and authority of Christ Jesus, you will not fear the enemy.

Having the mind that Christ Jesus lives in you makes you unconquerable in the spiritual realm as the Holy Scriptures declare.


Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1 John 4:4 KJV

If Christ Jesus lives in you, why should you be afraid of the devil and his minions? The King of Kings, the LORD of Lords, the Creator of the universe, the Prince of peace, the Beginning and the End lives in you in the person of the Holy Spirit. If you have this mindset, the enemy will never come close to you. You can read for yourself.


For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Colossians 1:16 KJV

If you read from verse one of Colossians chapter one, Apostle Paul was writing about Christ Jesus. Paul states that Christ Jesus is the Creator of all things. Jesus Christ created every spiritual and tangible thing.

Christ Jesus created perfect and holy angels, but some chose the path of sin and became rebellious. If the Creator (Christ Jesus) of the universe lives in you, why should you walk in fear? In Ephesians chapter two verses six, Apostle Paul writes to the believers in Ephesus.


And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

  Ephesians 2:6 KJV

We (Christian believers) are seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenly places. We are far above principalities, powers, and dominions (See Ephesians 1:19-21). Build the promises of God recorded in the Holy Scriptures in your heart, and the devil will flee from you.

Most of the promises recorded in the Holy Scriptures have conditions. Christians who do not walk in the obedience of the Holy Scriptures open the portal for the enemy to dominate them. Knowing the Word (Holy Scriptures) is different from the Word knowing you.

If Christ Jesus does not know you and you declare that you are seated with Him in the heavenly places, the devil and his minions can dominate you. If you ignore the principles of the Word, your profession and declaration of God's Word will have little or no effect on your life.

This is one reason many Christians become confused in their spiritual life. They know the Holy Scriptures, but they don't walk in obedience. You must meet the conditions of the Word, or else the Word will not have any effect on your life.


Dominating the strategies of the devil with Christ Jesus Principles

In this article, I will share some strategies of the devil and how Christ Jesus overcame him. Applying the principles of Christ helps us to walk in victory because Jesus lived a successful life.

In the book of Luke, the Physician described the temptations of our Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus.


And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot againsta stone.

And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

Luke 4:1-13 KJV

Luke stated that the Holy Spirit led Christ Jesus into the wilderness (solitary, a desert, desolate or lonely place) to fast and pray. Fasting and praying without the influence of the Holy Spirit is dangerous. Jesus only went into a deserted place to fast and pray when the Holy Spirit led Him.

One reason the Holy Spirit led our Lord and Saviour Jesus into such an environment was that He wanted Jesus to have His privacy. In the season of fasting, the devil tempted Jesus. I will write into details in the next article on fasting and how fasting works in the season of spiritual warfare.

After the fasting and prayers, Luke records that Jesus became hungry. This is where spiritual warfare begins. The devil tempted Jesus with food. First, understand that food is not evil if the Lord blesses it.

The devil substituted and prioritized the things of the flesh above spiritual things. This is what we call the lust of the flesh. The devil makes us desire the things of this world to the extent we forget the things of God.

Some people only think about their stomachs, body structure, and their hair. They have no idea of how their spirit and soul cries for the Word. Apostle Peter stated that we must desire the unadulterated (free of erroneous doctrines) Word to grow in the Spirit (Meditate on 1 Peter 2:2).

Some people only think about sex, pleasure, job, food, and money because they have allowed the lust of the flesh to control them. Others have become slaves to the satanic kingdom because of greediness, fame, power, and money.

The Illuminati control many politicians, governmental bodies, organizations, and influential leaders because their personal interests and family consume them. If you are a recognized leader, politician, or businessman and fail to align with the Illuminati and other satanic group’s policies, they will wipe you out if you are not born again.

James Roldós, the first elected president of Ecuador, became an enemy to the satanic kingdom because he did not allow the Illuminati to exploit their oil and other natural resources. The satanic kingdom used the media to destroy the reputation of James Roldós because he did not conform to their system.

The Illuminati conspired with politicians and other corrupt leaders and killed him in a plane crash. I believe the satanic kingdom did the same thing to former USA President Donald Trump, and as a result, he lost the presidential election.

President Slobodan Milošević also died (political murder) in Holland by these satanic societies because of their evil agenda. I strongly believe our former President John Evans Attah Mills, Kwame Nkrumah, Pastor Myles Munroe, and other presidents who died while in leadership departed from this world at the hands of these corrupt politicians and satanic organizations.

In Robin de Ruiter's book, the 13 satanic bloodlines, he exposed the strategy of the Illuminati and how they assassinate leaders who fail to comply with their policies. I quote from Robin de Ruiter's book titled, the 13 Satanic Bloodlines; Paving the Road to Hell, “If the Monarch slaves fail, a coup is attempted or a revolution forced with the help of different secret services. If this doesn’t work, a special elite unit carries out liquidations. And when the time has come, the leader or dictator of a country will suffer a “heart attack” or some other accident. If all this fails, the military division of the New World Order comes in."

The monarch slaves are human beings trained by the Illuminati to destroy. They train and treat these people like animals because they want them to cause calamity and become assassins in this world.

Haven't you heard of how these secret kingdoms wiped out Christianity in Japan in the 17th century? The Illuminati wiped the Christians in the northern part of Africa with war and confusion, and Islam dominated these sectors.

Child of God, if you don’t build yourself in the Lord, the devil will control you with these secret organizations and corrupt leaders. I recommend you read this powerful book” The 13 Satanic bloodline by Robin de Ruiter for more wisdom keys.

Christ Jesus overcame the devil with the Word. He declared, “That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”  Aside from physical food and water, we have spiritual food (Word of God).

We depend on this food to sustain our spirit and soul. Without this food, the devil will recruit you into his kingdom. How do you feel when you are fasting? Sometimes you feel like you are dying out of hunger.

That is how your spirit and soul feel when you starve them with the Word (Holy Scriptures). The devil wants you to pursue the rat race. He wants to make your life miserable. The devil wants you to follow lost and hopeless “celebrities” in the ungodly music and movie industries who have no resourceful vision in their life.

If you allow the devil to control you with these secular and visionless “celebrities,” you will feel empty, lost, hopeless, and confused in life. You can become a drug addict or liability in society if you give your heart to the devil.

The devil will show you all the mansions and wealth of this world. All his wealth comes with deceptive conditions. You have to sell your soul for these temporal riches (Meditate on Mark 8:36). Worldly treasures are good, but they have limitations!

The truth is, none of us will take earthly treasures from this world after death. We will leave them behind. I have never seen a corpse carrying his cars, airplanes, house (s), businesses, mansions, money, and other earthly treasures to the graveyard.  The temporal things you are dying for will not last forever. Visit the mortuary, and you will understand what I am writing to you.

Aside from worldly treasures, prioritize heavenly blessings because they are eternal. It is only your heavenly treasures that will last forever. The devil will use the jobs you are seeking as a trap to cage you in his prison.

He will use the employer to trap you in sexual immorality or some grievous sin before making you his employee. The devil wanted Jesus to bow to him. Like the satanic kingdom, they want your submission.

They want you to give up on Christ Jesus and the church. These organizations will make you work all week because they want to weaken your Christian life. They will entice you to higher wages to make you work above the standard business time.

You will be paying taxes to the government all your life as your salary increases, not knowing that you have become a slave. Any job that makes you weak in your Christian life is a trap of the enemy.

In some organizations, corruption dominates. Failure to comply with the corrupt policies in that jurisdiction makes you an enemy. It is a trap of the enemy to make you backslide. If possible, resign from such an organization and get a different job or start a business with the savings you have accumulated in your bank account.

If you have invested in some profitable business, resign from that corrupt organization and use your dividend as startup capital to establish a profitable business that will allow you to serve Christ Jesus and the church. You can read my previous article for more wisdom keys.

In verse nine, the devil tightened the trap.


And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot againsta stone.

And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

Luke 4:9-13 KJV

Don't allow the devil to use your talents, knowledge, gifts, beauty, academic qualifications, wisdom, and experience to destroy you. Most often, knowledge, gifts, beauty, and personal assets make one proud.

It is a trap of the enemy. You can get my book, The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail, for more profound revelations. Relying on your strength is a weapon of the enemy to make you lose God’s protection.

The devil wanted Jesus to prove himself as the Son of God. He tempted Jesus to jump from the mountain. Jesus could have jumped to prove himself to the devil, but He rejected the enemy's test.

Trying to prove to the world, your enemies, and those around is a deadly trap of the enemy to make you deviate from God’s plan. It can paralyze your potentials. Proving yourself to the world and enemies is a waste of time and energy.  

Those who love you will accept and value you for who you are as you embark on God’s plan for your life. Your enemies will never accept you if you prove yourself to them. You will rather become a slave to them.

They will manipulate you if you try to please them. Some people commit suicide because they fear the opinions of others. If you want to prove yourself to your family, boss, loved ones, and enemies, you can fall into the hands of the enemy.

God knows your capabilities. Prove yourself to Christ Jesus because He is the Final Judge. Know these truths.

  • If Christ Jesus knows you, you will always walk in victory.
  • If you know who you are in Christ Jesus, the devil and his cohorts can never defeat you.
  • If your heart is one (agreement) with the Holy Spirit, the enemy outside can never harm you.
  • If the Word is one with you in the spirit, soul, and body, the works of the enemy will not work in your life.
  • If you dominate the enemy within with the sword of the Spirit, the enemy outside will be nothing before you.
