0 Be Strong in Your Fight Against the Forces of Hell!

Since we now know that Satan uses nothing but subtlety and deception to trick men, there must be a way to handle him. Remember, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free…. Jn. 8:32.

What is that way? The devil is a man of tricks. How do we keep him under control? Remember that 1 John 2:14 says: I have written unto you, young men, because ye are STRONG, and the Word of God abideth in you and ye have overcome the wicked one.

So what do you do? Ephesians says: Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

This means, let your being in the Lord be a matter of personal consciousness. You are of God so automatically, you’re an overcomer (1 John 4:4). So, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath set us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Galatians 5:1).

Not all Christians are standing strong in their walk with God. It’s time to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

When you hear a man say, “I cannot fail! I cannot have accident!”, he is only saying what he is worth in the Lord. Some folks may see it as pride, but the scriptures say, “My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad” (Psalms 34:2).

When you are face-to-face with any challenge of life (such as sickness), tell the devil, “I am of God, therefore I have overcome you. So, get lost!”

You need the strength of God to deal with the cruel forces all around the world today. You need the kind of strength that will enable you to stand in the face of obvious danger, without any fear.

There are too many weaklings carrying just one armor of God around, when the Bible recommends that we “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Friend, you can’t afford to be a woman in this race. The Bible says, “Quit yourselves like men, and fight” (1 Samuel 4:9).

Get Satan off your mind, and heaven and earth will bear record that a son of God is manifesting indeed! Be bold! Be strong! For the Lord thy God is with thee!

Resist The Devil!

The devil doesn’t need any invitation, before he comes your way. He is always prepared. This is why he is called the prince of the power of the air, as he is always going to and fro looking for what to steal and who to kill.

    Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you…James 4:7

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world…1 Peter 5:8-9

The devil won’t flee because you look nice and gentle, or because you don’t disturb anybody. He won’t flee because you are kind and have all the fruits of the Spirit. Nor will he flee because you are such a strong church member. The mere fact that you’re so involved in everything in the church is not enough reason for him to flee. That you give offering regularly, will not move him either.

Satan will flee, only when you resist him. It takes some force for him to bow. He is an enemy and you are engaged in a battle with him. He is not someone to be begged or cajoled. We are wrestlers.

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…Ephesians 6:12

Have you ever seen wrestlers beg one another in the ring? Resist the devil, and he will flee! Not beg him or beg God, and he will flee. No! it is time to take charge! Refuse to let Satan have his way. Stand against him! Show him who the boss is!

Many Christians have no form of resistance at all on their inside. Friend, it’s not God or your pastor that will resist the devil for you.

You can cast out a million demons from a person and before he gets to the next bus stop, he acquires another two million! Every evil spirit has God’s permission to stay somewhere. But you can keep them off your territory!

What does the word ‘resist’ means? How can I be sure I am resisting the devil? What has enabled us in our ministry to be where we are today, is just an understanding of the word ‘resist’. The devil is my eternal enemy. Every time I see him misbehaving, I am excited, because I want to tear him to pieces!

If anybody tries to hit me with a club, I say, “Satan, get out!” I resist him immediately, I take charge, and let the force in question know that a stronger force is around. This is very important.
There are many Christians who allow the devil to have his way in their lives, without any resistance whatsoever. Some say, “I won’t eat, because I know that if I eat I will vomit.” Such a person is putting up no resistance at all against the devil. So, the devil just takes his toll on such people.

The Christians who will make it this end-time are soldiers. You cannot be a child forever. A child is no better than a slave, because he remains under governors and tutors until he grows. Even though all things are his, he doesn’t enjoy anything (Galatians 4:1-2).

0 Just In the Form of a Man

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name...... Phil 2:5-9

Just In the Form of a Man

For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. Acts 3:22

When the Lord sent Moses to Pharaoh, He did not send him as a man. Exodus 7:1 says: And the Lord said unto Moses, see, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh…

Jesus came and was God unto the world. He came as God in the form of a man. And hear what Jesus said, “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you” (John 20:21).
If you connect these two scriptures above, you will understand that you are only in the form of a man; you are not made of human stuff. There is something strange about your make-up!

The day you gave your life to Jesus, you received another life. You had human life before, now you have eternal life, which is the God-order of life. So, you now operate the God-order of life, within the form of an ordinary structure.

Carry the understanding, therefore, that the same way Moses confronted Pharaoh, is the same way you are to handle Satan, in any way he presents himself. It was not Moses that was able to get Israel out of Pharaoh’s hand; it was the Greater One in him! From now on, when the Pharaoh of this world (Satan) presents himself, look at him and pity him. Tell him, “Pharaoh, this is another Moses, the New Testament one. Now, get lost, in Jesus’ name!”

One day I was driving back from Ibadan (West of Nigeria) and at a check point, a soldier pointed his gun at me, threatening to shoot me. I told him, “You are too small!” Immediately, his gun dropped in his hands. The next thing he said was, “I am sorry”.

Friend, another life has been infused and injected into you. It is eternal life – the very life of God! The Bible calls it “this treasure in earthen vessels” (2 Corinthians 4:7).

An understanding of the image of God in us, will translate us from the realm of human limitations, and put us right where things will work for us as they would for God. If you don’t have an understanding of the truth “Ye are gods”, you will not be able to put situations on earth under control.

If you approach spiritual battles as a human being, you are bound to fail, because the flesh profiteth nothing. It is the spirit that quickeneth. By strength shall no man prevail.

Isaiah 59:19 says: “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall life you a standard against him”. Not a man’s height, status or the strength of his natural muscles, but the Spirit of God on the inside of him. This is the only way man can successfully put the enemy, Satan, where he belongs.

I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High…Psalms 82:6

All of you that are the children of the Most High God are gods. I mean all, not some, and not a few. But because you don’t know this, you are prone to die like men and fall like one of the princes.

You must know that by virtue of your new birth, you are no longer a mere being, but a peculiar being in human form. Everybody is free to be plagued by diseases, not you. Everybody is free to be frustrated in their various endeavors except you. The nobles of the earth may have no place to put their seats, not you.

    “I have said, Ye are gods!”

You must understand in depth how this revelation is to affect your daily lifestyle. Besides, you must put it into practice. Ye are gods! Know it! Understand it! Walk in the reality of it! Work it out!

Be Conscious of It

The knowledge of the Holy God, and the consciousness of His nature flowing in your veins, is your staff of office on the earth. Without it, you lose control.

You have the infallible nature of God that determines His own course and destiny, in your heart. You need to awaken your spiritual consciousness, and call off religion. We have been called to exhibit the transformed life on the earth. It’s time to show the devil that Jesus is still alive in us.

For your Pharaohs to submit to you, you must walk in the consciousness of the truth that says, “Ye are gods.” For diseases to obey you, for sicknesses to bow to you, for poverty to give way to you, you must carry this consciousness about – that you are indeed a god in the form of a man.

Go and discover your roots, and live well!

From now on, every mountain will obey you. You were once natural but now you are divine, because the life that makes for divinity now flows in you. Right now, whatever mountain you confront with this truth will obey you.

Get ready! Stop struggling! Start walking in the light of this revelation, and in no time at all, you will know that God who gives you dominion, and backs it up with power.

You can dominate your circumstances! You can send sickness away from your house! You can send poverty away from your territory! You can have what you please, as long as it is covered by the covenant.

You shall no longer lose control, in Jesus’ name!

0 The Seven Spirits Of God

Jesus Christ who is our commander could not manifest His destiny and fulfill His mandate on the earth until He was filled with the 7 spirits of God….

Luke 4:14-19 says: Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.  He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.'s%20Spirit?

He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read.  The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

Jesus was able to achieve these feats not just because He is the son of God, but because He was powered by the 7 spirits of God which are listed in Isaiah 11:1-2:

The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.

It is now very clear, it is a 2-4-1 settings. God is very much interested in the development and soundness of your soul hence He invested much in it. You cannot graduate from the higher institution without passing the principal. The soul is the principal area in the human structure, so if you fail in the principal you cannot graduate and make further progress in life.

Therefore, as a man or woman that desires dominion and fulfillment in life, you must invest in the development of your spirit and soul.

Misplaced priority has been the undoing of many today, too many times, energy and resources had been invested on the maintenance of the body to the detriment of the spirit and soul who really needed all the attention and cares. 

That is why you see gorgeously dressed men and women in high places in Government, Institutions and our societies saying and doing things that only animals and insane people are permitted to do, unimaginable things.

Hear what the scriptures said about them in Rom.1:26-32:

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Friends, it is very dangerous to misplace your attention and care of your spirit and soul for another thing. Until your spirit man is developed and the components of your soul is developed and made sound you cannot exercise dominion on earth and in any area of human endeavour.

Friends, if you must command dominion on earth: in your business, ministry, marriage, career, etc, then you must of necessity appreciate the place of the four spirits that empowers the soul. Your overall worth is a function of the wisdom of God at work in you. I see you taking the right steps to developing your soul after reading these things.

Don’t you think that for a man or a woman to spend a fortune in buying ordinary cell phone whereas he or she has nothing upstairs is madness? You see our leaders in various places these days behaving like animals and babies, their spirit is dwarfed and their mind is underdeveloped thereby corrupted.

Jesus said, greater work than He did shall you and I do if we believe: John14:12: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 

There is no way we can do greater works unless we are filled with the same spirits He was filled with, the seven spirits of God. It is the baptism of these spirits of God that gives you and I power to do great works.

Friends, I strongly advice you to partner with God for the transformation of your soul; this is the only way you can be fulfilled on earth. The wisdom, knowledge and understanding that are required for dominion and a life of fulfillment can only be resident in the soul not in the body. The body requires only good food to keep going.

Daniel possessed these; 5:12: Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and showing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will show the interpretation.

It was a spirit of God developed soul that gave Daniel the upper hand in a strange land. When the spirits of God is upon you, you don’t need to know any body before you breakthrough and dominate; even in a strange land of captivity Daniel prospered by the instrumentality of a hyper sensitive spirit and a sound mind by the excellent spirits of God.

It is a spirit of God developed soul that enhances the sensitivity of your spiritual antenna to pick divine signals. When your spirit is down and your soul is underdeveloped there is no way you can be sensitive to the signals of the spirit. When you pay all the attentions and cares to the wellbeing of your body alone leaving your spirit and soul you can never hear what God is saying concerning any issue.

These spirits are made available for you and me to posses; they are for you and me for the asking. Why not go to God now in a heartfelt prayer asking for the baptism of these spirits: spirit of wisdom, spirit of understanding, spirit of counsel, and spirit of knowledge.

See you at the TOP most Top by the manifestation of these spirits!

0 Embrace The Word to Put Satan under Your Feet

The illuminator of the believer is the Word. When it comes, and until light comes, you don’t talk of shining, winning, or victory.

The Spirit of the Lord has quickened His Word, now being made alive in you, to show forth His praises on the earth. The Bible says, “The entrance of the word giveth light” (Psalm 119:130).

God’s Word makes you smarter than the devil. The Word of God carries the divine nature, and it is transferred to you when it is formed in you, and becomes your life style. Divine nature is conveyed into every human vessel via the Word of God, causing man to operate the forces of divinity in his earthly walk. It is time to respond to the Word on a more serious level. You cannot fight to get what you don’t know belongs to you.

God’s Word can never be made invalid or ineffective. The Bible says God’s Word is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). Jesus never had any prayer requests. He simply operated His divine nature, and it always produced for Him.

When John talked about the young men, he said, “The Word of God abideth in you.” What does this imply?

To deal with the devices of the enemy, you need the wisdom of God. Where is this wisdom? The Bible says Jesus Christ is the power and wisdom of God. So, the strength you need to stand and the wisdom you need to discover the devil’s tricks are from God’s Word.

Now, for example, a man tells himself, “I’m feeling feverish.” Once God’s Word which says, “He took your infirmities and bore your sicknesses and by his stripes you are healed” (Isaiah 53:5), comes alive in such a man, the next thing he will say is, “satan, you must be the one feeling feverish.

As for me, I feel healthy, because Jesus took my infirmities, and God’s Word says in Joel 3:10, ‘Let the weak say, I am strong’. So satan, get lost!”

Where does this wisdom come from? From the Word of God, according to Psalm 119:98. Once you become wiser than that trickster, how will he succeed in tricking you? When you are dealing with a trickster, you need a wisdom star resident in you, for to discover an error is to know the truth.

Friend, when you don’t know the truth about any matter, the devil gets you carried away with his lies.

A simple command from you, based on the authority and integrity of the Word of God, which when mixed with faith in you, will release the trigger of heaven’s wisdom.

There was once this hefty fellow, who was possessed, and everybody was trying to hold him down. He kept attacking everyone around. I said to myself, “Do I have the much physical strength to resist this man?”

But you know, I had a little more understanding than those who were trying to hold him down. So I approached them and said, “Leave him!”

Immediately, the devil knew this is someone who knows what he is doing. I said to the demon tormenting the man, The angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness (Jude 6). “What are you doing here? Get out!” That was all!

The man was set free. Every devil tormenting him disappeared, at the instance of that Word!

It is ignorant believers who allow so much room for the devil in their lives. If you make up your mind to give the attention you are now giving the devil to Jesus (The Word), you will literally be living in heaven.
When I am set on a journey, all I say is, “I am going. Every devil, get off the road!” Don’t you notice that mad people always get off the road, when they see an oncoming car? Even a crazy and naked man knows that a car can kill!

There are believers, that are identified as killers in the kingdom of darkness – “Jesus I know, Paul I know…”(Acts 19:15). The moment such believers get on the road, the forces of darkness automatically clear off it. They don’t need any admonition, counsel or noise-making. No!

Here in Africa, we live in an environment where we have lots of taboos and cultural belief, that makes a man a slave to the world of the unseen. The invisible forces rule our communities. You hear such statements like, “Those are the people in charge. Such things don’t happen ordinarily! We must do something about this. It is a very serious matter. Many have died like this before.”

So, the man goes to see some fetish priests or some prayer houses, where they begin to give him information that pumps fear into him, and he then begins to follow them like a horse or a mule that has no understanding.

I tell you, the devil never hangs around my house, my car, or on the road I travel on. No! He just clears off on his own. It’s time for him to start doing the same for you, in the mighty name of Jesus!

Everyone God has lifted in ministry, business or whatever, has always claimed that a Word came. Something always enters before something happens. When a Word comes from heaven, it makes the difference.

I was in an Anglican church in 1976, and a man came up to read the scriptures. I knew this man as a drunkard. He stepped up to read from John 6, and what an illumination!

“I am the bread of life…”, he read. It was to me as if Jesus Himself was the one reading. Some heavenly light came on that Word, and tears were streaming down my eyes.

That was a sinner man, who knew he wasn’t saved, readying. But to me, as he was reading the scripture, there was a soothing anointing on his voice, and what he was reading began to penetrate my heart.

For the first time, it became real to me that God’s Word is enough to make food available to man. The Word of God, provides food for you and guarantees your refreshing. This is enough to deal a lethal blow on every lack-mentality or anxiety.

Your lifting has its root in the Word. God said “because thou hast kept my Word, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all that dwell upon the earth” (Deuteronomy 28:1).

Your distinction is in the Word of God. Your separation is in the Word of God. The difference between you and everybody else will be determined by the Word. This is why you just have to embrace God’s Word, more than your necessary food and all other necessities of life.

So many are going around looking for prayers. Such people often come to me and say, “Please agree with me.” I tell them, “No, you agree with God.”

Your agreement with God is what determines what heaven releases to you. If I agree with you and you disagree with God, how will you escape? (Hebrews 2:3) It is your agreement with God that determines your fate in any conflict of life.

You just have to discover what heaven demands of you, to be triumphant and ever victorious in life, and give it all you’ve got. Only your agreement with god will guarantee His walk with you, and when God is for you, who can be against you? Until you’re ready to walk with God, you’ll remain under some pressures here.

A believer who wants to see good days must not take the world’s view of things on face value. he must probe into the truth of such views, with the Word of God, which is the final authority in all issues of life.

This is a necessary step to walking in victory over satan.

0 You Have Power Over Satan

And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore…Matthew 28:18-19

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you…Luke 10:19

Many of us need to know how much power is working inside us. That was why Paul prayed this prayer in Ephesians 1:18-19: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.

power over satan

And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.

He said when your eyes of understanding is enlightened, you will know what power is working inside you.
    But as many as received him, to them gave he power…John 1:12

He didn’t give them a name, a denomination or a title; He gave them POWER! You are a product of power. You came from the Almighty, Omnipotent God. Like begets like.

You are a powerline on the earth! You now have the God-order of power. When you first believed He gave you power. Then when you were baptized in the Holy Ghost, you were endued with power (Acts 1:8). In order words, God immersed you in power!

It is time to be conscious of your new status. Give yourself a sense of superiority over the cruel forces of the enemy.

Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought?...Numbers 23:23

Whatever position you find yourself in as a believer, never have an enchantment-mentality. No enchantment can work against you. On what grounds?On the grounds that you walk in the consciousness of God’s power.
John said:
    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world…1 John 4:4

The Greater One is in you; you must carry “the greater one mentality”. From now on, when you are dealing with any problem, carry “The Greater One mentality” tell yourself, “though this problem might seem great, I am greater, because the Greater One lives in me.”

Whatever God is saying about you, He has put in you the power needed to make it happen. God’s power in you is capable of bringing into effect every Word He has spoken concerning you.

I have seen many temptations, but I know the truth is true anyday! The devil is not strong enough to stop you from being what God has marked you out for.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:18: I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

There is no policy on earth or in heaven, that can stop the Church from marching on. The Bible makes it clear in Isaiah 11:9 that, ”the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” This does not require the permission of any government. God’s Word must be brought into effect.

It’s time to be power conscious. You are a product of the Omnipotent God. Walk in the consciousness of the power that you carry. This will go a long way to establish you in the plan and purpose of God for your life.

Let everyone around you know that God’s power is at work in you. You cannot have dominion without power. It is power that forces your enemies to obey your voice. The power of God is what subdues His enemies (Psalm 66:3).

Friend, what you have in you is greater than what Moses had when he confronted Pharaoh. It is far greater than what Elijah had. Nobody was endued with power in the Old Testament. They only had visitations, they never had the indwelling of the power of God.

We are power-carriers! God’s Word says: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover….Mark 16:17-18

Wherever you are from now, you will displace the enemy. He will not take advantage of you any more. Friend, if there is anywhere you shouldn’t waste time at all, it is in casting out any devil.

You are a power-container! You have God on your inside. This is the fundamental secret of all my victories in life.

Thank God for corporate prayers, but Jesus said “Behold, I give unto you power…” That means, you are an individual. You don’t need any joining of hands before this power can work.

The divinity we are talking about is power consciousness. An understanding of this truth will launch you into an explosive manifestation of the power and wisdom of God in your life.

These two things keep God on His throne. That’s why the scriptures tell us that Jesus is the wisdom and the power of God. If you lay hold on this truth, you’ll become a threat to every devil!

Now, move forward! The word is waiting for the sons of God to manifest their divinity. This will make us “the solution” to the world. Absolute peace in every area of life is provided for you in the Word of God; don’t programme yourself for a turbulent life!

2 How to Guard Your Mind

The mind is a very vital tool for the  failure or actualization of your destiny; battles are fought and won in the mind before they are physically fought. That is why the devil will always want to attack the mind of people. He knows if he can win in the mind, he has won in all other areas.

Therefore, the word of God warns: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life…Proverbs 4:23. The New English Bible translation (NEB) says, “Guard your heart more than any treasure, for it is the source of all life.”

get motivated

In 1 Peter 1:13, Peter also reiterates: Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober…

Your mind is such a crucial asset to a victorious life. The mind is so vital that it is the main target of Satan’s attacks in the man. The mind is the eye of the man. What it sees and accepts shapes a man’s life and determines his state.

This is why the devil would rather have more blind minds than blind eyes. He will never succeed in flooring anyone, whose mind he has not first held captive.

The enemy cannot reach you except through your mind. The moment he captures your mind he has got you! Romans 8:6 says: For to be carnally minded is death: but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

There is a “spiritualizing” process of the mind that makes the abundant life that Jesus came to offer us a reality. Jesus didn’t come to paralyze your mind; rather He came to upgrade it.

The enemy is constantly hunting for your mind. It is the base of his operations. He took over Peter’s mind and Peter became Satan on the spot. Jesus said in Matthew 16:23, “Get thee behind me, Satan.” Peter no longer saw things the way God saw them. He stood against God, in the arm of the flesh.

Every time you find yourself arguing against the Word of God, just know that the devil is behind it. His ministry is to make you captive, so you become an enemy of the truth. You now find yourself turning your back on the truth, each time you come in contact with it.
In whom the god of this world hath BLINDED THE MINDS of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them…2 Corinthians 4:4

The principal access of the enemy into the believer’s affair is through his (believer’s) mind. The Bible says: “Then Satan entered into Judas surnamed Iscariot…” (Luke 22:3), so he lost his sense of value and decided to sell his master for 30 pieces of silver!

Know this; there is no way Satan can get to you except through your mind. Look at the rich fool for instance, the devil woke him up in the night and said to him, “There is nobody like you in the whole of this community. You have enough to eat and drink, even if you don’t work till you die.” The man must have then stood up, looked at himself in the mirror and said, “I know what I will do, I will pull down the entire barn I have, and say to my soul, soul, and it’s time to relax.”

The devil had polluted his mind! Look at his words – “I…I…I” kept resounding! God became irrelevant to him. The devil made him to displease God so that he could get him. Your mind is a battle ground!

A young lady came into my office, sometime ago, and gave this interesting testimony: There was a time I was led by the Holy Spirit to ask people who desired to be married to stand to their feet. I then pronounced every curse and spell over their lives broken.

This lad said, within a week, like a mystery, a young man approached her and asked for her hand in marriage. Prior to that time, somebody had once told her that she will never live to see her married.

From then on, this lady took her mind off marriage. The devil had told her it was not possible, with that curse that has been pronounced upon her. Her mind was held captive and she was no more expectant. She became a mental prisoner.

Bless God; I have always known that what God says is final, no matter what people have said about you. There are some today, who are still being held captive by what their parents said to them, when they were in kindergarten. There are yet others who are expecting problems, before they come. They are already mentally prepared for trouble.

For example, there are very few Nigerians, who believe one can have a family without troubles. You hear such statements as, “Do you know even a born-again Bishop, filled with the Holy Spirit, sent his wife packing the other day?”

Friend, your mind has to undergo rejuvenation! You have to come out of your cocoons of bondage! Tell yourself, “I’m not made for trouble, I’m made for peace. I’m not made for failure. I’m made for success.”

One day, long ago, I was on my drawing board, doing some work and a thought came to my mind, “Who says the devil is not powerful?” He then brought to my remembrance all the havoc my family had been through – “so and so who died, who killed him? They day you went on a journey and the car somersaulted; you think I didn’t do it?”

That’s what the devil does. He attacks your mind by bringing all he can see around, to challenge all you claim to know. He doesn’t have a Bible.

For somebody who is believing God for a child, for example, he reminds her, “What of the X-ray you took? Don’t you remember that your two tubes are blocked?” He constantly uses occurrences and situations around as points of reference. That is why the Bible recommends that we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

You can’t turn away from challenges. All you need to do is to build up a strong resistance against them. If Satan can’t get your mind, he can’t get you. He has no access to your spirit. Your spirit-man is in union with God, but your mind is here, available to him.

Many have had their minds bound. They have accepted that trouble is a normal way of life. Whatever you can’t picture yourself getting into, you’ll never enjoy, because the Bible says, “The expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off” (Proverbs 24:14). Don’t look at your tomorrow and say, “What a bleak tomorrow!”

Renew Your Mind
You need a fresh baptism of mind renewal. It’s time to build a mental picture of a glorious life that transcends the limits of your salary and your family background. It is so important!

    And he renewed in the spirit of your mind…Ephesians 4:23

Every evil work proceeds out of your thought. The man, who gets to the point of slapping his wife, already had the plot planned out in his mind first.
What do you do to your mind to make it resist the enemy’s pollution? Your mind must be correctly tuned to God, to know exactly what to do per time. You need to “spiritualize” your mind.

    For to be carnally minded is death: but to be spiritually minded is life and peace….Romans 8:6

Satan took over the minds of Peter and Judas. Thank God, Peter eventually overcame, but Judas ended up a victim. Satan took over the mind of Eve and she shifted her mind from God’s commandment. According to Paul’s writing to the Corinthian Church, Eve was deceived, she wasn’t overpowered (2 Timothy 3:13 and 2 Corinthians 11:3).

Isaiah 26:3 says: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee…

If you give your mind over to the devil, he will steal your destiny. Be at alert! When the devil comes to clog your mind with wild imaginations and thoughts, clear them by praying in the Holy Ghost (Jude 20). That will ventilate your mind.

You might be telling yourself, “I want to enjoy life. I want to be in the will of God, but my mind seems to be an enemy of my soul and future!” Your mind must be in active participation with your spirit, for the covenant to work for you.

You must constantly have a spiritual perspective to life. It doesn’t matter if the whole world seems to be swallowed up in problems, they just won’t affect you, as to be spiritually-minded is life and peace. Never listen to what the devil is saying. At all times, be mindful of what God is saying.
You must see things the way God see them. You must not be overtaken by what is happening around you. Spiritually-minded people are people of exploits, as they must enjoy life and peace.

In Romans 12:2, the Bible says: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Let your mind be constantly flushed with God’s Word. Let God’s Word give you a new thought pattern; let it affect your mind.

You need a daily renewal of your mind. It will help you to disregard the enemy and all his pranks. You will then find yourself looking at life with hope. People who never see a problem in their Christian encounters, are those who will make it easily.

When the devil comes to challenge you, tell him to get lost, and remind him of what the World of God says concerning the issue.

I once met a woman whom all x-ray reports have told doesn’t have a womb. Medically, and as far as doctors were concerned, her case was already a write-off. The day I visited them, my mind had already been sharpened by the Word of God. I knew that the God who made man is also a manufacturer of human spare parts.

I turned to the woman and said, “Woman, the devil stole your womb, because when God made all things, He said they were very good. Every part was intact. The devil indeed came to steal, but Jesus came to give us back what the devil had stolen.” At this point, I could see her and her husband exploding in faith. I said to them, “Even if what the x-ray shows is correct, God has the answer. So, in the name of Jesus, don’t take another x-ray, just have a baby!” That settled it.

I was somewhere for a meeting one day and there she was, giving the testimony, with her baby in her hands! Sometime later, I made reference to this woman’s baby, as one that God manufactured.

Don’t ever let the enemy tell you your future has no meaning; you are so valuable to God. The whole world cannot compare with the value of your soul. So, you are so precious in the sight of God.

God is not behind your sufferings! He is standing there to life you out of it. He takes pride in your success. He wants to brag about you. So, don’t let the enemy fool you into believing that nothing else matters, except getting to heaven. You are not only to get to heaven; you are to radiate His glory also upon the earth.

I don’t pity a man who is a failure! All I do is tell him, “Stand up from where you are and find your way out! You don’t belong there!” Stop living a fake life. Get a correct perspective of life. Tell yourself, “I will no more be an object of pity.” See yourself from now on blessing others, making others happy and not dying as a beggar!

Those who have polluted minds can never see a future for themselves in this life. Their destinies are consequently lost to circumstances. They walk on in hopelessness and frustration. Your mind belongs to God. Keep it pure. Philippians 4:8 says:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Think on good things only. “Your thoughts shape your life” (Proverbs 4:23, Living Bible). Anytime you find yourself thinking trash, tell your mind to come back home even if it means shouting out loud in public at yourself.

People are dying in their large numbers. For a Christian, to have hypertension is a sin in itself! The Word of God says we must be anxious for nothing.

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. Colossians 2:8

When you hear people say such things like, “This world is not that easy”, the Bible says beware! God says His plan for you is to have a good welfare and a future. However, what God ends up doing with you, is limited to what expectations you have.

If you have a mediocre expectation, that’s where you’ll end up. But if you have a superior expectation, that’s exactly where you’ll get to. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7).

Right expectations don’t give birth to anxiety; rather, they make you walk in peace and serenity.

2 Why Did God Create the Devil?

Many keep asking this question, sometimes in their hearts, sometimes openly. “Why did God create such an enemy to trouble you?” you may have wondered.

Friend, the truth is that, God did not create Satan as a devil in the beginning. God created him perfect in beauty. He had tremendous glory in heaven. In fact, he was the highest in the hierarchy of angels. He had the unique assignment of covering God’s throne.

 get motivated

See what Ezekiel 28:12-15 says:
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, thus saith the Lord God, Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

He became Satan, the devil, when iniquity was found in him. He was consequently cast out of heaven. It took violence to eject him. He was forced out and cast into the earth (Revelation 12:7-9).

From then on, he made up his mind to fight against God, always pitching his tent against God and His people. That is why he is your enemy. Check the scriptures – he has always been at variance with God’s plan. He went into the Garden of Eden, tempted Adam and Eve and caused them to rebel against God.

He corrupted the world till it became so evil that God had to destroy it (Genesis 6). He smote Job with sickness and robbed him of all his children and possessions.

When Daniel prayed, he sent one of his fallen angels to withhold the answer to Daniel’s prayer which God had released at the instance of Daniel’s prayer (Daniel 10:12-13).

Satan is traditionally anti-God! He is constantly on duty to ensure that he does not lose the battle, yet he keeps losing! Every evil in the world today, is the devil’s handiwork. God never tempts any man with evil (James 1:13, Job 34:10). God will not destroy what He has created.

Satan’s Three-Fold Mission
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, to kill and to destroy…John 10:10

The devil, your enemy, is the thief. He is not coming physically to break into your house or to snatch your car, but he has ways of stealing your money, time, health and even your property.

You have to know that Satan is the unseen hand behind every evil thing. Any time you’re attacked by sickness, he has come to steal your health, joy, peace, comfort, money and even your life. He is desperate about this. His ultimate aim being to destroy you. He is the enemy!

Satan is your only scripturally acknowledged enemy and you must see him as such. This is the truth.

0 Where Satan Your Adversary is Now

And the God of peace shall bruise Satan UNDER YOUR FEET shortly.
                                Romans 16:20 (Emphasis mine)

Where is Satan? Where is your adversary?
He is right under your feet! This should give you a sense of authority. Satan is not your equal at all! He has n basis to contend with you. He is under you and is to be given instructions – “Satan, stop there! Loose him and let him go!”

get motivated

In every business set-up, there is an organizational hierarchy. The one under takes instructions from the one above him. Instructions don’t pass from below to above.

No! It’s from above to below.

Satan is not to determine what happens; you are the one to make up your mind about what happens. He is not to give orders, he is to receive orders.

This is always the master blockage to man’s breakthrough. You might be telling yourself, “Oh I wish my case was as simple as that. The devil has been oppressing my family for the past four generations. No one among us has ever scaled through life without rheumatism. It is in our blood”.

Sure enough according to your ignorant belief, the devil now goes ahead to see that everybody in the family has what has been confessed, since you have opened the door for him to do so.

You need to know that even if everybody else in your family suffers rheumatism, you are a new creature. Old things are passed away and all things have become new. You now belong to a new family, a heavenly one. 

So, you cannot be afflicted with any plague or disease from your earthly lineage. Your lineage has changed! You were once darkness, now you are light. God says; walk therefore, as pure children of light.

Galatians 5:1 says: Stand fast therefore in the liberty where with Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

God will only deal with the enemy that is under your feet. If the enemy must thus be dealt with, you must appreciate the fact that he is under, because that is where God will bruise him.

The reason Satan is still giving you instructions is because you have not put him where he belongs. The Bible says, “Give no place to the devil”, but you have placed him so highly that God has no choice but to leave him where you have put him.

The scripture has made you to know that the only enemy you have is under your control. He is to take instructions from you. You are above him. When you give orders, he must receive them. He is not superior to you; you are superior to him by virtue of redemption. In every battle, you have the final say.

It’s time to become less devil conscious. Stop saying “It’s the devil”, morning, afternoon, night. Stop seeing the devil in everything! The place you give him is where he will occupy.

Jesus set a pace for us. In His entire sojourn on this earth, He never had any discussion with devils. All He did was to determine what happened to them. He always had the final say, He called the shots. “Go!”, “Come out of him!” was all He ever said, and that settled it. He controlled the affairs of His kingdom.

Friend, you are above every wicked force of this world (Ephesians 1:20-21). Yes, all! Eckankar, Ogboni cult, witches and wizards, name it. You are now sitting where Christ sits (after He rose from the dead), far above principalities and powers, and every (not some or most) name that is named – be it spells, curses, enchantments, or whatever. It is not only in this world but also in hell.

All things are now under your feet. You just need to walk in the consciousness of the authority that this truth confers on you. Satan is neither a watch for you, nor is he your headache.

John Avanzini said, “When you kick a dead dog, the movement it makes is as a result of the force you exerted in its direction”.

Friend, you don’t beg the devil, you command him. I once visited a church with one of our pastors, and there was this little boy who had been talking ceaselessly for above five days!

The Pastor-in-charge had been conducting all-night prayer to deliver the boy, all to no avail. When I asked they told me what the matter was and I said, “Tell him to stop now!” They said, “We’ve been telling him!” For five days? I then said, “Bring me the boy”, and I commanded him to stop talking. That was it! All the boy needed was a contact with somebody who knew his worth as a god. Authority is what determines the winner.

It’s time to display your true nature. Don’t appeal or beg. All things are now under your feet, by the lifting power of redemption. It is not by your making, but by the lifting power of His grace.

You don’t owe any devil any apology. It’s time to take your stand. Pass instructions, and every devil must obey. God won’t bruise him until you put him where he belongs, and that is under your feet! Which devil will the Lord bruise for you? The one that is under your feet.

From now on, begin to walk in the understanding that you are made of real power stuff! What you say matters, not only in heaven but also on earth. You are not meant to be a struggler, but a king, born to win. You are not meant to be a beggar. Wake up and take charge!
