Christian demonology 103 “demonic warfare”

Sermons

(Many times in the movies we will see all kinds of ridiculous rituals to combat demons. Many will use hissing cockroaches to holy water but the reality is only the word of God is effective to combat demons.)

Four Powerful Weapons Of Spiritual War!                              #1 Using the name of Jesus!                                                Philippians 2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,    (The greatest weapon we will ever have against demons is speaking the name of Jesus! No matter how great God will use us in ministry our name will never get the results that the name of Jesus will! Demons are petrified of the son of God and they will be petrified of us if we stick close to Jesus.)

#2 Forgiving!                                                                                                                                Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.                                                                               (Jesus was doing  three things in this bible verse praying, interceding and forgiving. The greatest of all was forgiving. God never said if we don’t pray and intercede for others we will not see heaven but He did say if we do not forgive others our Father in heaven wont for give us. It seems like we have HD photo graphic memory when it comes to the people who hurt us as a child but amnesia when it comes to remembering all the people we hurt as a child. This is not a coincidence but spiritual evidence that demons will bring back to our remembrance all the people who hurt us and the thoughts will come to us over and over in our mind like a scratched CD. Please take special not that when we are winning spiritual battles it will often look like we are losing in the natural just like they thought Jesus was defeated on the cross! The greatest way to destroy demonic strongholds is by forgiving.)

#3 Loving                                                                                                                                            1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

#4 Hating Money                                                                                                                      Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.                                                                                                                                               (I heard someone say how can we hate money we can not live with out it. Have you ever heard of someone working for a boss that they hated but still did their job. They used their boss for money but their heart was far from their boss! In the same sense flip it around we hate the money but we use it for a purpose. When we hate money we will be spiritually free to give as God leads us and break free from demonic strong holds of greed. We need to hate money and keep our heart far from it! Hatting money will destroy so many demonic attacks and cause Christians to soar in the Spirit!)
