Effective Deliverance - Knowing Satan's Devices (Part 1)

One thing that gets or keeps people in bondage is ignorance. One’s innocence and ignorance do not exempt them from suffering or becoming victims of various attacks that emanate from the devil’s kingdom. 

The Bible records in the book of Hosea chapter 4 and section 6 that the people that “Belong to God” are destroyed for lack of knowledge. It follows that one’s association with God does not exempt them from being in bondage as long as they stay in ignorance.

There is no substitute for knowledge. One has to get wisdom by all means and like the book of proverbs asserts in the 4th chapter and section 7, one has to include in all their getting and at all costs get understanding. Do you understand why you are in the situation that you are in right now? Do you understand why you have remained static without progress for years? Could there be forces out there fighting against your destiny?

The Book of 2 Corinthians chapter 2 and section 11 says that the devil could actually take advantage of one if they are unaware or ignorant of his devices. 
Effective Deliverance - Knowing Satan's Devices (Part 1) 
What are some of the things you should know about the enemy as you fight negativity and failure in your life? 

We begin this series by pointing out some of them and deal with them in detail in the future posts.

1. Get an understanding of the origins of the devil and the demons that work under him. The book of Revelation in the 12th chapter and section 7 to 9 talk about the first set of demons to be thrown down on earth together with their master the devil. They had rebelled against God and lost their position as glorious angels in heaven. After they were thrown on earth they took a lower position and along with with it the names devil and demons.

2. Know the various ranks of demons and how they affect humans. The book of Daniel chapter 10 and section 13 speaks of Daniel being withstood in the spirit by the prince of Persia whom Michael the archangel came and challenged and conquered. The book of Ephesians chapter 6 section 12 also talks about our warfare that we experience in the physical as actually spiritual and against ranks of demons namely principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.

3. Know the strong man leading the war against you or any situation you are dealing with. All evil spirits have a leader and they take instructions from that leading demon. The leader is usually established and will not move despite other smaller demons moving. When dealing with recurring misfortunes and situations in your life, get an understanding of the strong man or the leading demon. Dealing with the strongman naturally deals with the rest of the demons that are of smaller ranks under it. The book of Matthew chapter 12 section 29 says no one can enter a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first binds the strongman, and then he will spoil his house.

4. Most importantly, know your position in warfare so that you have an upper hand in warfare always. The book of Acts chapter 19 and section 13 to 17 talk about certain vagabond Jews, that were exorcists who attempted casting out demons using the name of Jesus Christ whom Paul preached and they did not get very good results from the exercise. These were the 7 sons of Scheva a Jew who was also a chief priest, so they were generally people of high status in the community. Despite their social status, the demons acknowledged knowing Jesus and Paul, but could not identify them.

Principalities have ordered, and they also recognize the order of the Highest God. In saying they did not recognize the sons of Sceva, they were not referring to their names but their association with the Kingdom of God as well as their rank. The devil always mimics what God does and the sons of Sceva were not an exception, they were Exorcists which in simple terms were witches and wizards who bind and releases spells but were now trying to invade and take advantage of the true power of God for their own profit and it did not work.

Your most powerful position in dealing with evil is not from without, but from within. The Bible records in the book of John chapter 1 and section 12 that as many as them that received Christ, to them he gave power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. The greatest power a human being has is not found in their ethnicity, culture or social status. The greatest power one has against evil is in association with the greatest power, the Creator through Christ.

Receive Christ today and be sure of your total deliverance from evil.
