Seven Weapons Of Spiritual Warfare - Part II

June 2020

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.” —II Corinthians 10:4

This month we continue with weapons four through seven in part two of this article.

4. There is awesome power in the prayer of agreement. In Luke 10:1, Jesus, our Lord, sent his disciples out two by two. In James 5:14, it reads, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church” to anoint and then to pray. In Matthew 18:19, Jesus taught, “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” Oh, brother or sister, there is awesome power when you get others praying in agreement with you. The prayer of agreement can bring down the strongholds of the enemy. It is time for brothers and sisters to form prayer groups of faith to see miracles of healing and deliverance.

5. I believe in the awesome ministry of angels. Hebrews 1:14 refers to angels in declaring, “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Psalm 91:11 reads, “For He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Angels are mentioned 194 times in the Bible, with 99 times being in the New Testament. Angels helped Jacob when he was in great despair. Elisha would never forget the angelic intervention. An angel strengthened Daniel in the midst of great trial, and they showed up in the fiery furnace to help three Hebrew young men. How about apostle Peter? He would never forget the angel that showed up while he was in Herod’s prison and is written about in Acts 12. Angels were revealed to Saint John many times in the book of Revelation. Thank God for the ministry of angels to the body of Christ. We need our guardian angels. Psalm 34:7 reads, “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.”

6. Dearly beloved, we must not forget the power of praise. In Psalm 119:164, it says, “Seven times a day do I praise Thee because of thy righteous judgments (ordinances).” David wrote in Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” I must remind you of what happened in Acts 16. Paul and Silas had been beaten severely for preaching the gospel. They were locked in prison in Phillippi, Greece. Luke wrote in verses 25 and 26, “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God; and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” You can’t tell me that there is not power in praise to our God.

7. The most powerful weapon of all is the power of the blood of the Lamb. We know from scripture that everything God does to bring favor and blessing to His church is by and through the awesome power of the blood of Jesus. Salvation comes by the blood. Sanctification comes by way of the blood. Healing and deliverance come through the blood. The baptism of the Holy Spirit comes after the blood has been applied to the heart. John the Baptist cried out, speaking of Christ, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” I Peter 1:19 proclaims that we are redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ,” and Paul said in Ephesians 2:13 that we are “made nigh by the blood of Christ.” John wrote in Revelation 1:5 that Jesus washed us and made us clean by the blood. In Revelation 12:11, the church “overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb.” I remember that when I was a child growing up, I would watch my dear mother walk the floor and pray these words, “I plead the blood, I plead the blood.” She understood that the greatest weapon of spiritual warfare was focusing our faith on the cross and in the shed blood of Calvary—for our salvation, our sanctification, our healing, our deliverance, our peace, and our joy. With a full understanding of God’s Word, total faith in the shed blood of Calvary, and reliance on the Holy Spirit, you and I can enjoy a life of victory, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
