Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 8th – We’re At War!

(Use The Weapons Of The Spirit To Pull Down Evil Fortresses)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 NASB
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”

Ever heard that song: “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty in the Holy Ghost!” Yes, that’s so true and important to note!

Not many Christians realise that we’re at war; the Bible tells us to “…wage the good warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18 AMPC). Thank God we do have weapons, and they’re indeed powerful through the Holy Spirit; they can pull down every fortress of darkness, be it mental, physical, intellectual, or even financial.

When such fortresses are built against the work we do in God’s house or the ministry of the Gospel, we launch our weapons!

One of these weapons is what the Apostle Paul called “…the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). That sword of the Spirit is the same thing Daniel referred to when he said: “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him…” (Daniel 7:10).

Daniel saw it in a more glorious way. John called it “a sharp sword from his mouth” (Revelation 19:15).

And in 2 Thessalonians 2:8 KJV, Paul called it “…the spirit of his mouth.” He’s dealing with that fiery stream that Daniel talked about. When it’s needed to be a sword, it works as a sword; when it has to go as spirit, it fulfills the purpose.

Our God leads His children in war to victory (Exodus 15:3, Exodus 14:14, Psalm 24:8, Revelation 19:11). There’re warrior angels whom the Lord deploys in our behalf. Thus, we’re victorious in all wars. Glory!

In your life, fear nothing; fear no one. Use the sword of the Spirit. Use the Name of Jesus. The Word declares that we have overcome all antichrist spirits. The forces of darkness are under our feet.

In Christ Jesus, we have overcome the world. In every situation, you can declare, “I’m more than a conqueror. Greater is He that’s in me, than he that’s in the world!” As we deploy our weapons through the Holy Ghost, we win at every count. Praise God!

I pray for many around the world today that are haunted by terrible imaginations of fear, defeat and failure; I declare deliverance for them, and affirm that the Word of God dominates their minds and prevails in their lives, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
