So how do we destroy the works of the devil? Here’s a idea!

I was actually working on something completely different to post when I saw Adam again wanted my attention, but I thought my reply to him might be helpful to others in the body of Christ dealing with serious issues.

I am still praying for your salvation Adam, and I will continue to pray against the foolishness and lies you have chosen to put your faith and trust in, because as long as those voices are still allowed to operate in your life, and you choose to listen to them; you will never truly see the Love that Jesus Christ has for you when He died on the Cross for you so that you might be saved. He did not say you will be saved but that you might be saved, and He has been directing me everyday how to pray and intercede on your behalf.

Adam I can not thank you enough for the way you have spoken against me. The more evil you speak against me and my Lord and Savior that I serve, the more you are enabling the power of God to operate in my life. I try operate in the spiritual realm everyday that God gives me to live on this earth. God shows me a little more everyday how to operate in His kingdom and bring His kingdom to this earth. You claim the church and the faith of the church is dying, but I have gotten to witness thatis a total lie. The end time harvest has begun and the church is not only growing in power but faith. I am so thankful and honored that God has allowed me to play a small part in the destruction of the works of the devil.

One of the hardest things for me to learn when I started down the road of spiritual warfare was to hate the sin but love the sinner, and I believe it is a very hard thing for most Christians or Christianity in general. I know for many years as a Christian I hated the sinner, but oh how I loved the sin operating in my life. But when God began to show me that there was a spiritual reason or entity operating in my life that was not only promoting the sin in my life but making me love the sin in my life, and when God also began to reveal to me that the purpose of the powers of darkness in my life was to deceive me so they could take me to hell with them; When I chose to listen to their voices and obey their lies then they became my master and not Jesus and they where accomplishing that task in my life. I was not loving the actual sin in my life such as, outburst of anger, lust, or greed, but in actuality, I was loving the demon behind it. That is how we become slaves to sin and then a evil task master becomes our lord instead of Jesus. The Lord then began to reveal to me that is how we try and partake of the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. Which Jesus has made it perfectly clear that this was impossible and James, the half brother of Jesus, in James chapter 3 addressed this issue saying that when from the same mouth comes forth both blessings and curses, this ought not to be, and that the tongue had the power to set our whole body on a course for hell. When I started to see all of this, it reversed my way of thinking where I had been deceived many years even as a professing Christian. This revelation set me free. Jesus then began to change my heart and I then began to develop a love for the sinner like never before. My heart just began to break for the lost and dying and I began to loathe and hate the sin as well as the powers of darkness promoting it. This started a chain reaction in my heart and I then began to develop and a love for Jesus that was as real as the love I was getting for the sinner. I began to meditate more and more on God’s word and God showed me that His law for us was created so we could walk in love towards one another. The more that I knew God’s word, then the more I could fulfill God’s perfect law of love in my life. God began to reveal to me I had lived my entire Christian life exactly opposite of how I was suppose to. I knew the bible said we where suppose to love God with all our hearts and thought if I could just figure that part out first it would fix everything else and I would love the my neighbor as myself. I lived my Christian life miserable for almost twenty years because I knew I did not love God with all my heart and I did not think He loved me either because I was ate up with sin, and I knew God hated sin so therefore I thought He hated me.

When we come to Jesus for the first time and we realize that we are a sinner we are suppose to be a new creation and we are suppose to do away with our old way of life. We are suppose to destroy the works of the devil in our lives but how on earth are we ever going to destroy the works of the devil if we don’t destroy the devil that is operating in our lives. That does not mean to make a peace treaty with the devil and tell him to go away now and don’t bother me anymore because I am Christian now and I am not suppose to do bad things anymore so go bother somebody else. We will never be able to walk out our salvation in this lifetime and become that pure spotless bride if that is how we try and do it. You have to kill the demon. That is why the Lord says the violent take the kingdom by force. What kingdom was He talking about . He was talking about the kingdom of heaven. Adam when God first showed me this I was so excited I called my earthly father who had been a trail blazer in the deliverance ministry and had been doing it for many years and is respected by many to be a expert in the field of deliverance and people from all over the world have sought my dad out to pray over them over demonic oppression and spiritual bondage. I know my dad to some degree thought I had lost my mind a little bit and definitely thought I was off base a little. I have definitely have become accustomed to people thinking I am a little loose in the head, so I went back to God in prayer and said you would have to confirm this to me out of God’s word so I knew this had come from Him because I was already having a little doubt I was hearing God right here and after talking to my dad I was having a little more doubt and I knew that if in fact I was hearing God here then Satan would stop at nothing to try and steal this word from me just Like every other time God has given me some revelation out of His word. When God first started to speak to me about killing a demon I was having some thoughts like now that seems a little hard core and nothing I have ever been taught in the church or have seen in the Bible seems to point in that direction. You are going to have to show me that in the Bible and then you are going to have show me how on earth I am ever going to kill a devil because I am only a sinner saved by grace. I know your word says that we will have authority to tread over serpents and scorpions but this is way more radical and over the top and don‘t even remember when Jesus himself when casting out demons said anything about destruction.
The first place God took me was to Matthew 17:15 and let me set the stage for you. Jesus and His disciples had both been out preaching and teaching the gospel and while some of his disciples had been out ministering and praying for people a man had approached them and had asked them to pray for his son. The disciples had begun to pray for this boy and had tried to cast the demons out of him and nothing had happened. This man instead of giving up and saying there is no hope for my son went to seek out Jesus. It looks like this man had quite a bit of faith operating in him and he was definitely believing in the message of healing and deliverance to some degree because he was certainly not given up. I know many years ago in my life if I had been that man, after Jesus disciples would have prayed for my son and nothing happened I would have begun to doubt the message of deliverance and healing, or I might have gotten a little angry at God, thinking something like you answered other peoples prayers, but you won‘t answer mine. Am I not good enough for you God? Do you not love me God? So because you are mad at me you are just going to let my son die? But guess what? This man did not do that. Instead of going home and giving up he pressed on trying to seek out this Jesus fellow. So the stage is set starting in verse 15: Lord, have mercy on my son, he is a lunatic, because he is very ill; for he often falls in the fire and often into the water. You know that almost sounds like this boy had a demon promoting depression and suicide in him huh? Man oh man, I have been there before! 16: And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not cure him. 17: and Jesus answered and said, Oh unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring Him here to me. 18: And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him at once, and the boy was cured. You know something I am thinking about right here, is Jesus when it came to deliverance and healing, he was always doing things different. One time He might tell a demon or demons to come out, another time He gave demons permission to go into the swine, which we will cover later in detail just for you Adam, since you are so offended and hurt for the well being of those poor pigs, and therefore have tried to condemn Jesus for animal cruelty. Dude what goes through that little brain of yours. One time He might have just laid hands on someone, another time He gave demons instructions to come out and due know harm, another time He spit in the mud and made mudballs and then put it into someone eyes. Another time He just spit directly into some one’s eyes, probably to mock back at the demons causing the blindness and he was spitting his DNA directly onto this man and the demons.

I wonder what the DNA of Christ does when it touches a demon directly. I am just thinking out loud here. Could it be that when Christ DNA comes in direct contact with a demon it brings instant death to a demon. At this time I can not deny that or prove that so it is just a hypothesis I might want to put a little research into that later. Or maybe since you pride yourself so much on knowing God’s word so well so you can try to cause doubt or strife among believers and promote your agenda. What goes through your brain on that subject matter Adam so that I might see a little of Satan’s tactics on this subject matter on how he might try and deceive us as believers.

Anyway back to Matthew 17 starting in verse 19: then the disciples came to Jesus privately saying why could we not cast it out? 20: and He said to them, because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you, 21: but this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. Now my Bible just said nothing shall be impossible to me on the subject of spiritual warfare and deliverance, so if God wants us as believers to destroy the works of the devil operating in our life and therefore destroy the devil in order to make that happen then Jesus has just made it perfectly clear and confirmed that anything would be possible but does not confirm we are to kill the devil here. How? As long as we have the faith as a grain of a mustard seed. Let’s go on Adam.

Turn to Mark 11:14 and again I will set the stage for Adam. Jesus has become hungry and sees a fig tree in leaf and walks over to it to see if perhaps it had any figs for him to eat. Jesus finds no figs and in verse 14: And He answered and said to it, may no one ever eat fruit from you again and His disciples were listening.

Now Adam, I know this is going to be a difficult thing for you to try and wrap your hands around so before the noisy traffic in your head starts screaming something like Jesus was a tree killer or hated mother nature or whatever else type of garbage you might be hearing in your head. I am going to warn you in advance that Jesus is about to make a point to his disciples and has started a lab class to verify what Jesus taught and is about to use the tree to make a point.

Skip down to verse 20: and passing by the next morning, they saw a fig tree withered from the roots up. To put that in simple terms that means the tree was dead. 21: And being reminded, Peter said to Him, Rabbi, behold the fig tree which you cursed is withered. 22: and Jesus answered saying to them, Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted to him. Okay now it is starting to get interesting. Before when Jesus was speaking specifically on deliverance he said you will say to this mountain move and it will move. Here Jesus has just killed a tree and now He tells us if we say to the mountain pick yourself up and be cast into the sea. And He is using the death of the tree as the reason to make this point. So in other words the dead tree and a mountain picking itself up and being cast into the sea are the same thing.

Now lets look at Revelation 21:8 But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death. Now God is addressing a lake here that causes death. The second death actually, where before he was talking about a sea that kills mountains. This lake and sea sound pretty much just like each other.

Now lets look at Mark chapter 1 and Jesus has just come out of the wilderness after He was tested and tempted by the devil for forty days and the first synagogue He comes to He goes into and begins to teach. Starting in 23: and just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24: saying, what do we have to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are the Holy one of God! It is real interesting to me right here there was a real concern here voiced by this demonic spirit that was wondering if Jesus was about to destroy them. Them signifies plural which means more than one, but when the demon says I know who you are that is singular representing one was speaking on behalf of all of them. Perhaps the strong man. I am not going to address the strong man issue here. I am addressing this demon was fearful and new that Jesus had the power to destroy them and was concerned that this might be the day.

Now lets go to Matthew 8 and look at one of my favorite deliverances, but before we do that what did Jesus say would happen to us if we tried to save our own life? Jesus taught us that if we save our life we will lose it, but if we lose our life for the sake of Christ then we will gain it or live. Now during this deliverance you have some demons that are going to try and save their life and let’s look at what happens, but for laughs and giggles I am going to set the stage for you again. Always when Jesus taught the word He would always hold a lab or have test. Jesus had just preached to the multitudes on the other side. During this time He taught about the parable of the sower and the seed which I know because of Mark 4 and 5 where Mark is telling same story. Jesus said when the word goes out Satan will try and steal the word. After that He gets into a boat with His disciples and proceeds to the other side so now it’s time to test the words He taught and see if the disciples received the word and can pass the test, and while this test is happening Jesus decides to catch up on some sleep and proceeds to fall asleep on the boat. Now a demonic storm rises up and starts to rage against the boat and the disciples are starting to fear for their life here. The devil is coming against them trying to steal the word from them like the parable of the sower and the seed and the disciples are starting to bye into what this storm is telling them. This storm is telling them I am going to kill you and there is nothing you or your little Jesus can do about it because we have ambushed you while Jesus is asleep. If your Jesus really cared for you He would not have fallen asleep, in the first place, and let you perish. Now look at Matthew 8: 25, and they came to Him, saying save us Lord; we are perishing! 26: and He said why are you timid, you men of little faith? Why are you timid, you men of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and it became perfectly calm. 27: And the men marveled, saying, what kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him? 28 And when He had come to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who where demon possessed met Him as they where coming out of the tombs; they where so exceedingly violent that no one could pass by that road. 29: And behold they cried out, saying what do we have to do with You, Son of God? Have you come to torment us before the time?

I cracks me up right here, that here are a thousand demons and they are a little scared that Jesus is about to start tormenting them. It is one against a thousand and the demons are scared to death and are looking for a escape route. These demons had probably been terrorising people for years on that road and they see this group of men passing by and they jump out to attack these men who are stupid enough to pass to close to them. As they jump out to attack this group of men they instantly recognize Jesus and realize they have just messed up big time. They obviously new that when demons came face to face with Jesus that only bad things could happen, and so they cry out to Jesus have you come to torment us. Now look at verse 30: Now there was at a distance from them a herd of many swine feeding. 31: And the demons began to entreat him, which means beg Him, saying if you are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine. In other words they where scared poop-less that Jesus was about to send them to someplace different. I wonder what place they where so fearful of? Lets look at Luke 8:31 and see this same story told again by Luke. 31: they where entreating Him not to command them to depart to the abyss. 32: Now there was a herd of swine feeding their on the side of the mountain; and the demons entreated Him to permit them to enter the swine, and Jesus gave them permission. Now look at that, the demons had to ask Jesus permission before they could even enter the pigs. This again proves that demons can do nothing that Jesus does not first permit them to do including torment or inhabit a person. Now as soon as Jesus gave these demons permission these terrified demons ran for their life. They jumped into these pigs to escape being cast into the abyss and then terrorized these pigs to take off and get as far away from there as fast as possible. Can you imagine the relief these demons started to feel. We just out smarted the Son of God and we have escaped with our lives. Then can you imagine their fear when they realized a little to late they had terrorised these pigs so bad they drove them off the cliff to commit sooie-side. These pigs when they jumped down a steep bank and drowned themselves in the lake. To me this is so comical to me that the demons where trying to save their life and avoid the abyss which just so happens to be another term for the bottomless pit or the lake of fire and guess where the demons ended up? They ended up in the Abyss when the pigs drowned in the lake which is symbolic of the lake of fire.

You know what else is interesting about this story in Matthew, Mark and Luke. There is no mention of this man requesting of Jesus to have these demons cast out of Him and yet Jesus did it anyway. So right here we see that Jesus has just changed the rules of engagement a little bit. That was the day Jesus made it perfectly clear to the demons He had come to pick a fight and start a war and set the kingdom of heaven up on earth as it was in heaven. The earth had previously up to this point had been Satan’s playground and he had not been challenged a whole lot after he had managed to put the prophets to death, but now the demons where seeing that Jesus could do pretty much what he wanted concerning them and now He was teaching His disciples the same war tactics. That was the day that changed demons thinking forever. The other demons that where nearby that day and saw this all happen realized then that there was no place they could possibly go on this earth that Jesus could not destroy them if He chose to do so, but then Jesus went to the cross and was killed then went back to heaven and Satan persecuted the disciples with everything he could throw against them and managed to overcome them and kill them. Satan was not scared in the least of religion or religious traditions knowing they where powerless to stop the powers of darkness, and the earth for the passed 2000 years has been turning into the devils playground again. Religious traditions have not taught the warfare that Jesus started, that not only could destroy the works of the devil, but could destroy the devil doing the works, because that is how you truly destroy his works. Now again we near the second coming of Christ and Jesus has sent the Spirit of Elijah and I believe also Moses back into the earth to raise up true prophets and disciples again. The prophets are going to teach the people of God again how to destroy the powers of darkness. Because Christ has given us authority over unclean spirits we can not only cast out these evil spirits but we can command them to go before the feet of Jesus for judgment. Those demons have to obey the authority we have. Jesus is the one who judges every man and every spirit according to its works. Demons do not have the same judgment timeline that we have. There are many demons that have already been cast into the lake of fire.

There are for different levels of spirits in Satan’s Kingdom and God has a different techniques we use for us as believers to engage them and utterly destroy them. Everything I am talking about here with You I have witnessed and used in spiritual warfare many times and some techniques I have used hundreds and hundreds of times. I have probably 15 more scriptures that I could take you to showing that disciples and followers of Christ are suppose to destroy the devil therefore destroying completely the works of the devil completely operating in a person’s life. God has taught me how to reach out in warfare if necessary to touch a spirit completely on the other side of the worldif necessary and I know it is there and operating in a particular person‘s life, and you Adam have been so kind as to tell me about two little deceivers that are present in your life. I don’t have to know it’s exact location. This is all done through prayer and seeking God as to what His will is in the matter. Here is one thing I know for certain about Jesus desire concerning demons. He is not desiring that one evil spirit should be forgiven and He will not hesitate one little bit when a believer comes to Him in faith requesting for or calling for the complete and utter destruction of a demonic entity. Especially when that believer knows that particular entity is getting in the way of a person’s salvation that believer is praying for.

So Adam I find it very funny when you want to try and convince me God does not answer prayers or God can not affect your life in any way when I know for a fact you are lying through your teeth. Especially when God has specifically told me what is happening in your life and how it is affecting everyone associated to you; then He is telling me what to pray for next. When you got so over confident and began to expose the entities you where being deceived by it gave me an open door in the spiritual realm of what to pray for and make a stand against. I know as long as you remain stubborn and rebellious and completely defiant to the Lord then nothing you post on this website can be believed as truth. God could allow both of your legs to be removed and you would still claim to be faster than a speeding bullet. You are going to know for a fact the God I serve is the only true God one way or the other, and Jesus is the final judge and He holds the keys now to death, hell, and the grave as well as the keys to the kingdom of heaven and He gives all of us our own free will to chose whether we love our fleshly desires more which only satisfy for a season and leads to eternal torment or whether we love Jesus more which will bring eternal satisfaction and joy unspeakable. Adam the ball is in your court and you have to choose.

Hey at least now every time you want to make a silly comment it affords me the opportunity to begin to teach everyone who comes to this website a little more about spiritual warfare.

    It’s been nearly a year since you posted this message, horns, but I can assure you that what God has impressed on you to post is still making an impact today. The Holy Spirit used you to speak to me and everything you discussed, from changing thinking to confessing and repenting of sin to spiritual warfare as a whole–everything was confirmed today, either through the television, what I’d read, and even through the Holy Spirit Himself directing me to specific verses on what was discussed. He even led me to understand that my sin, even though I too would spread the Good News, was basically of a double mind-partaking of the cup of the Lord and of demons–and I can say even this morning I suffered from demonic oppression–I had blasphemous thoughts come into my mind, I was babbling like a lunatic, I was close to losing my mind. The only one who kept me was Jesus Christ Himself and if I knew that it weren’t for Him I would have gone off the deep end. I still have some unconfessed sin in my life, I’m sure, and I’m going to ask Him what it is that needs to be rooted out of me and ask Him for a clean and pure heart in His sight. Wow. God is great. God bless you my brother, and even though it’s been eight months still, I wanna see more. Keep writing.

    Hi horns for plenty I read your post and found it very helpfull. I became a christain about a year ago and I have not been a good christain at all. I have been smoking cannabis regulary. I have read that cannabis is a big no no in the eyes of the lord. Is this the case? Im having a hard time accepting this. Am I decieving myself? Is it wrong to smoke pot? If you have any scriptures or advice on this subject would you send it to me? As im really struggling with this. Much appreciated Ciara

      Ciara,

      I had an addiction to the same thing for many years, I tried not to look at it as a sin and tried to justify by many other issues I was dealing with in my life. I would think well so and so who is sinning against me is worse than my smoking pot. Besides my smoking is not hurting anybody else it is only hurting me and it is actually helping me from losing my cool against this person.

      In the back of my mind I knew it was not right. That was the Spirit telling me to deal with it. Again when I saw what Jesus said about habitual sin and it keeps you from becoming a son. Habitual sin keeps you in bondage to sin. That makes you a slave to sin and Jesus said you can not become a son when you are a slave to sin and the slaves do not get to stay in the house forever. Think about the house He was referring to.

      When I realized there was a spirit behind that addiction that kept screaming into my mind you got to have it, you have got to have it. It helped me so much because I then saw why I needed a deliverer. Because that spirit was way bigger and way smarter. So I cried out to Jesus and got honest with Him. I called it sin and asked him to forgive me. I then asked Jesus to step in and remove the demonic stronghold from my Life and change my heart and remove the craving. Jesus was glad to do it for me.

      Then Jesus immediately took me to the next level and was able to show me the bigger issue was not the smoking pot ,but that I had been using it as a excuse to not walk in love towards the believer who was sinning against me. Pot was making me numb and pacifying me making me think I was dealing with this individual and I did not have a clue I was harboring unforgiveness in my heart. That ended up being the real break through for me.

      I guarantee you that you are going to find that the demon telling you that you have to have this pot and you will never be able to stop it, is trying to distract you from the real issue or the root cause. There is a bigger issue and the smoking pot is just the fruit of it.I will live you up in prayer on this.
      God Bless
      Corey
