The Fall of Satan, the Fall of demons, the Triumphant procession over them
(2 Corinthians 11:3 K) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. The rise of Satan and demons in the Minds of Ignorant people:-The way Satan attacks you is through lies or Manipulations. I used to think why didn't Satan use the image of a lion, elephant or beast to intimidate Adam and Eve but instead Satan used deception. Satan didn't force them with a gun but instead Deceived them. To think Satan looks for anything other than your mind makes you his playground. All the Temptations of Jesus Christ took place in His Mind (Soul). Satan wages all his battles in your mind (Soul). Your Mind is the Seat of what you think and know, past, Present, Future.
(2 Corinthians 2:11) Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. Satan only gets advantage when you are Ignorant of his devices in your Mind. (Colossians 2:15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. The word "spoiled" means to deprive or render ineffective. Satan and his cohorts have been rendered effective. (Luke 10:18) And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Satan is fallen. (Hebrews 2:14 ) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; The devil has been Destroyed or rendered powerless. Yes we are in a war, but this war is not Fighting Satan but maintaining our Victory In Christ.
The topic of spiritual Warfare has led some Christians give Satan and demons undue power till the point where it now turned into another Gospel. (Gal 1:6 ). I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: (Galatians 1:7 ) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Some People, the only prayer they know is how to cast out and bind Satan. You will hear Christians say when they want to travel "any blood sucking demons", am like, "demons are not mosquitoes so they don't suck blood". If you travel with the bus in my country, you will hear wonderful kinds of fearful prayers. We spend more time talking to the devil than talking to God. How many times did Jesus Christ or His Apostle's called Satan's or his crew in their Prayers?? Perverting the Gospel of Christ. (Ephesians 6:11 ) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.(Ephesians 6:12 ) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We are in a Battle but the Battle is against the "Wiles" of the devil. Wiles means deception. The only Power Satan has is deception, lies, cunningness etc. Principalities, Powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places are all fought in the Mind. And this Fight is Preaching the Truth of the Gospel. Nothing sets Free like Preaching the Gospel (2 Corinthians 10:3 ) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: Same thing in Ephesians 6:12. (2 Corinthians 10:4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) What is mighty through God to the pulling down of Strongholds?? (2 Corinthians 10:5 ) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Imaginations, thoughts to obey Christ: The Obedience of Christ is the Suffering of Christ and the Glory that should Follow. Our warfare is binding the Lies of Satan through is the Teaching of Jesus Christ. But most of what is called Spiritual warfare today as praying is just a ploy of the devil to distract Christians from the real thing. The same way the Real Gospel of Jesus Christ has its Prayer Points, so also another Gospel has it's own prayer points. You shall know them by their Fruits. (Matthew 23:14 ) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. One of the ways to know the deception of hypocrites is that they love long prayer which is just to hide their pretense and advance the doctrines of devil's. Spiritual Warfare has become so Weird and extreme that it is exalting and empowering the doctrines of devil's. Yes Spiritual Warfare is real but Spiritual Warfare is Teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you Study the Book of Acts of the Apostle's, you will see Believers tear down great shrines by the Preaching Only the Gospel of Christ. Have you seen a Generational Curses preacher who enters a shrine?? You will hear all types of bindings. You bind forces of Darkness by the Gospel not by binding Satan. Satan is already bound but Ignorance is loosed. Apostle Paul stopped the Whole of Asia from following the Goddess Diana just by Preaching the Gospel not Prayers. Only the Truth Sets Free Spiritual Warfare has been turned into twisting the hands of God from His back till a Miracle is out. Spiritual Warfare is now use to preach about Generational Curses, evil covenants, evil alters/evil foundation or if someone has sex in the dream, he/she is married in the realm of the spirit or if you eat in your dream, it means you have been initiated into a marine kingdom. Such Teachings only empower Satan and demons because these are Teachings that the Bible calls Doctrines of devil's because you will never hear such from the Mouth of Jesus Christ or His Apostle's. This is what Bible calls ", Teachings of Men": (Colossians 2:8) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Vain Teachings: (1 Timothy 4:1) Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; These are all seducing spirits and doctrines of devil's where they make you think you have to fight Satan. Yes, We have to fight against Satan but this fight is not to win Satan but to maintain Our Victory in what Christ has Done. The Concept of Spiritual Warfare has been taken to a very far extreme to the point where some preachers now give olive oil, salt, ribena, holy rice, holy water and all sorts of things to be eaten or drank just in the name of Deliverance which has exalted demons and Satan. We have to be Careful if We are using Spiritual Warfare as it supposed to be used. Spiritual Warfare is Teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Nothing cast out demons like Preaching the Gospel. It's not enough for the demons to come out, it's enough for them to stay out, else you have put the person in much more trouble.
