The Bible says that the weapons of our warfare are not canal. In 2 Cor. 10:3-4, it says ,
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh; ((for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds”
Some of these weapons are:
Prayer is invisible, untouchable, and invincible. We can’t destroy it and it is very powerful. So, you can see that prayer is a powerful weapon of warfare. And when you pray in tongues, the enemy cannot understand what you are saying.
Two of the greatest weapons of our enemy are doubt and unbelief. The devil uses these two weapons very well. Fortunately, faith is the weapon that will neutralise the two. The Bible in Hebrews 11:6,
“But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and He is a rewarder of them of them that diligently seek Him”
Hebrews 10:38-39 also says:
“Now, the just shall live by faith; but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition, but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”.
Faith is what will please God and as disciples, we want to please God, Faith is what we should live by because it deals with doubts and unbelief.
Holiness can be a defensive weapon, Jesus Christ in John 14:30;
“Hereafter I will not talk much with you; for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.
In other words, if there is no crack in the wall, the serpent will not be able to enter. If you are living a life of holiness, with no sin in your life, the devil will not be able to penetrate your defence.
Read Job 11:14-20
The Almighty God said that if you are living a life of holiness, you will lie down in peace, nobody will be able to frighten you. The enemy will never be able to come near you because holiness will form a wall of defence around you.
Holiness can be an offensive weapon. It is a weapon you can use against the enemy. In Prov. 28:1, the Bible says”… the righteous are as bold as a Lion”. When there is no sin in your life, you have nothing to be afraid of. You are bold. Boldness can really give you victory against the enemy. If you are afraid, you have already failed.
In Job 17:9, the Bible tell us what will happen to those who have a life of holiness. It says, “The righteous also shall hold on his way and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger”.
Since you are likely to fight several battles, it is a general advantage if you grow stronger as you fight on.
And now sin which is the opposite of holiness is the greatest thing that can cut off the line of supply between you and your greater ally. Your greatest supporter is the Almighty God. When you go to war if you want victory, you must have constant support from your Ally. When help is coming from Him, nothing must stop the help. But if there is a sin, He will want to send help to you but sin will block the way. Sin will break the bridge over which the supplies will travel to reach you.
Look at Isaiah 59:1-2,
“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear, But your iniquities have hid His face from you, that He will not hear”.
So, when there is a sin, the line of supply between you and your greatest Ally will be broken. But if there is no sin and you are living a life of holiness, the line will be kept open between you and your Ally and then you will have victory all the time.
Read Deut. 28:1-8. Here the Bible makes it clear that when you are doing the will of God, when you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to do everything that He commands you, if the enemies come against you in one way, they will flee seven ways.
This is victory. Holiness is a weapon. It can be for defences that the enemy cannot penetrate. It can be an offence, because you will be as bold as a lion and then, you get stronger and stronger every day, And then, the line of communication between you and your ally will be open. So, if you are living a life of holiness, let the enemy come, they will scatter.
There are other weapons of our warfare.
#4 There are other weapons of our warfare
In 1 Cor. 12:4-7 , the Bible says;
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit. And there are differences in administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal”.
The gifts of the holy spirit include the following:
- Word of wisdom
- Word of knowledge
- Discerning of spirits
- Divers kind of tongues
- Interpretation of tongues
In talking about these gifts of the Holy Spirit, there are certain words that were used. In verse 6, “And there are diversities of operations”. Operation is a military term, used when soldiers want to do an operation. They want to fight the enemy. God gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit to fight against the enemy.
We have mentioned four main weapons of our warfare:
- Gift of the Holy Spirit
PRAYER IN DETAIL
Let us look at Prayer closely and see how it can be used as a weapon of warfare.
When you pray, you call in your Allies. When you say “My Heavenly Father”. You draw the attention of God the Father to yourself. When you go on your knees and say “My Father who art in heaven”, your Father in heaven will pay attention. And when you go on to say “In Jesus’ name” Oh as soon as you say “In Jesus’ Name”, you draw the attention of God the Son, because he has already promised in John 14;14, “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it”.
So when He hears “In Jesus’ Name”, He wants to know what it is you want to ask so that He can get ready to fulfil it. But not only that, when you say “In Jesus name” you draw the attention of all things in heaven to you.
What are all the things in Heaven?
- The four Living beings
- The twenty-four Elders
- The Archangels
- The Cherubims
- The Seraphim
- The Saints in Glory
Anytime they hear “In Jesus’ name”, they look in that direction. Not only that, all the things on earth begin to pay attention. What are all these things on earth? Divine Police on Patrol.
When they hear “In the name of Jesus”, all those angels that are near where you are calling turn their attention to you. Not only that, all things under the earth also pay attention when you say, in the name of Jesus”. How do I know this? The Bible say in Philippians 2:9-11.
“Wherefore, God also hath highly exalted him, and give him a name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.
As soon as you say “My Father in heaven” you draw the attention of God the Son, the things in heaven, the things on the earth, and the things underneath the earth, and immediately the Holy Spirit move in to help you.
Because the Holy Spirit knows when you say “My Father in heaven, “In the Name of Jesus”, He knows that what you want to do is to pray.
In Romans 8:26, the Bible says:
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered”.
The holy spirit knows you don’t know how to pray and you are a disciple of Jesus. When he hears, “My Father in heaven, “In the name of Jesus”, He knows that this disciple wants to pray and he doesn’t know how to pray. Before he makes mistakes, let me help him.
So whenever you start to pray, you bring in all the Allies-
God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit
The Twenty-four Elders
The Saints in glory
All things on earth
The Angels on Patrol
All things underneath the earth
You bring all their attention to you. Now you can imagine that. You focus the attention of the Universe on yourself.
Whenever you pray, they knew precisely who is praying. They know where you are, where you come from. They know your name and your address.
So when I am praying and you are not praying, don’t expect that they will bring the answer to you instead of me. You may say “we are many”, and we are all not supposed to be praying and you keep quiet. When the miracle comes, it will go to all of us? No, the miracle will go to the one who prays.
Look at Acts 9:10-11,
And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias, and to him said the Lord in a vision, “Ananias” and he said, “Behold I am here Lord”.
And the Lord said unto Him, “Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus; for behold he prayeth”.
Look at that information, Who was praying? The Bible say, Saul, not James, not Peter. God knows your name too,. Then which Saul? He said Saul of Tarsus. God knows where you were born. He did not say Saul of Jerusalem although he came from Jerusalem. He did not say, Saul of Damascus, although, at that time, he was living in Damascus. He said the one who is praying, his name is Saul, and the village where he was born in Tarsus.
Today, God may see me praying and He would say behold ….name….. from ……country….. is praying. He is not going to make a mistake. Then He gives the address. In those days, they didn’t have house numbers but at least the street had an address.
It said this man, the Saul of Tarsus, is praying in a street called Straight. Now there are many streets in Damascus but there is only one called Straight. Ask for the house of judas, not the house of Thomas. Ask for the house of Judas. In other words, God is telling the angel that is bringing your miracle to you, as soon as you begin to pray, he would say, “Angel, I want you to go to this particular country. When you get there, look for this town. When you get to the town, look for this street. When you get to this street, look for this number.
When you get to that House, look for someone whose name is so and so, who was born at such and such a place. There is no way your miracle would be lost in transit. When you call the Name of the Father in Heaven, in the Name of Jesus”Oh immediately all the universe will focus its attention on you, accurately.
Now you know that when the whole universe is focusing its attention on one spot, there will be an earthquake. It might not be a physical earthquake, it may be a spiritual one. Anyway, we need an earthquake so that our yoke will be broken.
