Isaiah 54:17 proclaims “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.” By using these mighty weapons we can be
more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.
An army invading enemy territory needs to take down the strongholds to hold the land.
If strongholds remain, they will become a continual threat to the army and citizens in the land. As Christians we must understand that we are engaged in warfare; not one physically, but one spiritually. We have an enemy, and he is described as a roaring lion going about seeking whom he may devour. This enemy is the devil and he desires to steal, kill, and destroy us. Being aware of this should prompt us as Christians to be on our guard against the enemy, and the only way to do that is to be knowledgeable of the weapons that we have at our disposal.
THE HOLY GHOST
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. ” Yes, you must be baptized with the Holy Ghost if you expect to be any threat against your opponent. For God’s power is the only thing that the devil recognizes for it is the only power
capable of defeating him and bringing him under subjection. This point cannot be overemphasized because many people are going bankrupt buying books on spiritual warfare, containers of oil, special cloths and prayer handkerchiefs when they only need to ask God for the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The Bible declares that “the heavenly Father gives the Holy Spirit to them that ask”.
You got your faith and His Word – You have won!!!!
