2 Corinthians 10:3
📖3….”For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:”
📖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.”
2 Corinthians 10:4
📖4….”(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;).”
🔥That Christianity is a life of warfare is no longer a surprise. Hence those that come into the Christian faith without the preparation to fight, are often defeated and made nonsense of by demons that are not even their ranks spiritually. As humans are ranked in their places of work, so religious people are also ranked spiritually. Satan ranks his followers to appropriately use the rightful ones for different battles. He learnt this from God in heaven when he was Lucifer before his fall that made him Satan…Ezekiel 28:16. He saw how God ranked his angels into different offices such as Seraphim, Cherubim and Archangels. Hence he also ranked his demons into principalities, powers, rulers, spiritual wickedness, and so on.
🔥🔥So, for a Christian to continuously live in the light of Christ’s victory on the Cross, he must know that his walk in the flesh ends once there is a spiritual challenge involving forces which are loyal to the devil. In such times, the Christian must set his heart on the weapons that a believer must possess for his victory to be a resounding claim of the spoils produced by Christ, when he defeated Satan on the Cross…Col 2:14-15. These weapons are different from those of warfare. They are not fought with, but they are used to claim Christ’s already achieved conquest. Once you possess these weapons, you are more than a conqueror…Rom 8:37.
🔥🔥🔥For a Christian to be an inheritor of Christ’s conquest, he must possess an incorruptible character. The type that Joseph displayed in the house of Potiphar in Egypt in Gen 39:7-9, when Potiphar’s wife wanted Joseph to lie with her. Joseph knew God had already made him a victor from his dreams in Gen 37:5-10. So, all he needed to win the wife of Potiphar’s battle was character. In addition to that, you must also value God’s gift in you. No matter how small. The battle Jacob lost in the womb, he won by valuing Esau’s birthright, which was despised by Esau…Gen 25:22-34. Also, if you take risks for God, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did in Dan 3:16-18, you will be victorious in all your spiritual warfares like them.
🙏Thank you Jesus, for giving me the life you made with your death on the Cross of Calvary.
🙏🙏Dearest Father, help me to build up the character which will enable me to receive the conquered territories by Jesus, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, by your grace, may your deposited gift in me make me to take worthy risks for you in my faith, in Jesus’ name.
