Let me cut to the chase, this is coming from a place of pure loathing towards the Devil and his angels. I have seen Christians attacked over and over again to the point where they are afraid to ask for anything good because they’re more terrified of the enemy retaliating against them for having something than excited to receive God's blessing. This ties into health and healing, finances, work, family, relationships and everything else. Today, the Battleplan to victory is being revealed to you. There will be many topics covered in this series and there may be several parts. Do not be mistaken, the Battle Plan To Victory is a manual to spiritual warfare in Heavenly realms.
Throughout my years of being a Christian God has specifically taught me how to battle in the spirit. He has taken me in dreams and visions, spoken to me face to face, opened my eyes and ears to see enemy spirits speaking and so forth And I am going to share these things with you. Some of it may sound weird to you, but it will help you.
Let's start with the first thing I learned from God. When I was a new believer and just learning who God was I would have night paralysis and wake up to a demon or black figure standing at the foot of my bed. I would scream out until I could wake myself up and then I’d turn on the lights and start praying. One day while I was praying I heard the Holy Spirit say, “There is power in the name of Jesus. Every knee must bow. Everything with a name must bow.“ In my heart, I knew that this meant that if I called it a demon, if I identified it as anything, then it had to submit to God because everything that exists has a name. If it doesn’t, then I’m naming it just like my Farthest back greatest Grandpa Adam did in the garden of Paradise. What the Holy Spirit said was scripture. To me, if it’s scripture then it’s reality. I suddenly was aware the devil had to submit to the name of Jesus.
Upon learning this I laid down and went back to sleep. Surely the devil wouldn’t be stupid enough to attack me in my sleep again, would he? He was... I woke up again, paralyzed and unable to move. I remembered what I just heard and opened my mouth to speak and nothing came out. It was all muffled and quiet. I tried and tried and nothing. I thought, “Jesus, you said they Have to submit. Help me!“ I suddenly felt my mouth loosen up and though my body was paralyzed I could say His name! “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!“ That's all it took. I was free. Over the course of many years of Practicing this, I No longer panic when I wake up paralyzed. I simply say in my head, “Jesus, strengthen me.” Suddenly the enemy loses power and the name of Jesus drives away all demonic spirits.
I had a similar experience several years ago. I fell asleep after casting out a devil from someone at church. Later that day we had just sent off the last youth home with their parent and the leaders were all discussing next week's youth meeting. Suddenly we heard a little girl cry out and laugh then run down the hall. Naturally, we got up and went to see what was going on or if a child had stayed and was in the bathroom or something rather than going home. We had already checked the church once but we checked it again and there was nothing.
Then, while we were walking through the church we came into a room where a baby bassinet was rocking by itself. the room was dark. We check to see if it was a battery-operated swing and it was not. We commanded it to stop in the name of JESUS! and it did. Then we saw a black shadow take off up through the ceiling. Suddenly we heard what sounded like boxes falling over. We went upstairs and saw that an entire stack of decorations that had sat undisturbed for months had toppled. We went to turn on the light and it came on then all the lights upstairs went off.
At this point were a little freaked out. But I was not afraid. I knew that this was probably a demon (about 99.99% sure) therefore, we had nothing to worry about because they are weak and the name Jesus makes them cower in fear and flee. Nevertheless, there was this intense pressure in the room that made it feel like all the air was being sucked out of the room. Everyone was suddenly short of breath and some of the leaders were terrified. At this point, I was fed up! I shouted, "I bind you and break your power devil! Leave here in the name of JESUS!" Suddenly the atmosphere shifted, we could breathe, and all the lights came back on.
Later that night I had gotten home, prayed and reviewed the events of the day and praised God. I had finally fallen asleep when I was abruptly woken up by seven hands that had come through the floor. They were very dark, jet black and human looking for the most part. One was on my chest holding me down, one on each of my arms and legs, one covering my mouth so I couldn't speak, and one squeezing my throat in what felt like an attempt to kill me.
Moments like this are when it's most important to know, understand, and believe that God is more powerful than any demon and the name of Jesus is the most powerful name in Existence. Though I could feel the hand squeezing the air out of my chest and the other hand squeezing my throat, I was not afraid. I calmly thought in my mind, "Jesus, Please Strengthen me so that I can speak your name." I immediately felt the hand on my throat and my mouth lift and I said that most Holy of Names, "Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!" Every single one of those demonic hands hastily retreated into the darkness from whence they came.
What I learned from that experience was that the enemy will try to retaliate you and take you out. They only want to kill you, destroy your life, and steal from you. But the word of God and the name of Jesus Christ is enough to stop any demon dead in its tracks. It is your job to speak the name and the word in response to the enemy's attacks.
O.k., that was our segue into the next part of how we war in the Spirit, let's come back to that later on. Let's talk about the most important part of spiritual warfare before we even consider some more "advanced" warfare tactics.
Prayer is the most important part of any warfare that we do. More specifically, praying in tongues is the most important things you can do. I learned from Kevin Zadai that when you speak in tongues it actually allows Holy Spirit to intercede for you and speak out your book of life that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit wrote about you before you were formed. Jesus informed him that when they wrote our books in Heaven they wrote them as if we would never sin, or had never sinned. When I heard that it made perfect sense. Go would not write our story and write what sins we would commit and wouldn't commit. If He did that then he would be more guilty than the Devil for causing mankind to sin. What God says will happen, will happen.
There could be no recompense for sin, no judgment, no penalty for sin if that were the case because you would simply be carrying out God's will. There are some that seem to think, and even doctrines out there that teach this, that everything happens according to God's will. I believe that is nonsense. The reason I believe this is because of Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." and John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
If God doesn't want anyone to go to hell and people still do, then that's pretty clear evidence that not everything happens according to his will. Also, if God's plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, then stealing, killing, and destroying anything in your life is not part of his will, that's part of the enemy's will. This includes sickness that steals your health or the lives of friends and family around you; this includes when you lose your job or your finances are under attack and you just can't seem to get ahead and anything else that is going on in your life that you know just isn't right. Understanding that God is for you and not against you will change your prayer life and your LIFE in general.
Prayer may not always look like you think it should. In fact, Romans 8:26 tells us that we don't know how to pray and thus this causes the Holy Spirit to intercede for us. As we see in Matthew 10:19, Jesus tells the disciples that when they are delivered up to the courts, not to be anxious about what they will say because the Holy Spirit will speak through them. This shows that when you don't know what to say, just let the Holy Spirit say it through you. Relying on him in this manner will allow him to speak his pure and perfect will through you And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
