According to testimonies from people who were once devil worshipers, the devil has favorite techniques that he uses to fight and defeat Christians. this is what we are going to discuss
1. Lust and immorality
2. Money and wealth
3. Desire for power
1 HOW THE DEVIL USES IMMORALITY
Immorality - This is one of the devil's favorite tricks because he knows the power of sleeping with people against God's will. I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Fornication opens your spiritual doors and makes you prone to attack. Through this illicit relationship, Satan injects his poison into the destiny of my children. Demons come in, bite and suck blood. S3x out of wedlock destroys all forms of immunity and spiritual protection. It is a dangerous adventure. “It doesn't end with cheating on your spouse, but rather the seed of hatred is sown in your heart against your spouse in the process. When you exchange money for relationships with a satanic agent, you are involved in the transaction of exchanging your finances for bad wishes. It is a very successful and effective means of penniless people, especially men, who are the breadwinners of their families.
“No one who flirts can defeat Satan. When men commit sleeping sins, Satan gains victory over them. The man who knows how to pray and exercises authority through my word of power is dangerous to the works of darkness. But the one who can do this and is still a womanizer is an empty container, a plate that resonates.
“Thousands of male reproductive releases are brought into the world from the marine realm every day. Woe to that man whose deliverance is brought to the kingdoms of water! His fate and his life can be eaten by the devil without much stress because his seeds are already caged. It can be accessed through the seeds of it. His future is not hidden from his enemies and from Satan himself. He lives at the mercy of the devil, unless he is delivered on time. He removes the divine provision and makes men struggle in life.
Premarital relationships, especially, are the easiest way for people to enter the kingdoms of darkness. Virgins who are not bonded to anyone through relationships are Satan's target. They are like new ropes that tie better. They are easily linked to demonic attachments because they have no soul ties or spiritual ties. No one who breaks this law has ever been successful. When I say succeed, I mean according to my design of that individual's destiny. "
2. HOW THE DEVIL USES MONEY AND WEALTH
Money is undoubtedly a great battlefield between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Darkness both on a personal and corporate level because a Christian, and ultimately a church, without money will be hampered in their ability to undertake The grand commision. Furthermore, the devil will use money as a temptation to put it before God's people and he will set it as a trap to trap God's people. This particular section will take a biblical survey of the devil using money as a primary weapon against God's people. Money is like a double edged sword that we can use or be used against us, as long as we walk righteously in our finances, it can grab the sword and kill our enemies with it.
In Mark 4: 1-20, Jesus tells the parable of the sower that he declares was the most important of all his parables, as he says in verse 13, "Don't you understand this parable?
How, then, will you understand a parable? Jesus declares that the devil will attack the word of God that has been planted in our hearts and the following are the devices that Jesus said the devil would use. Notice how two of the devil's weapons are the deceit of wealth and desires for other things (note that the word desires, that is, plural, is used).
Worries of this life
The wealth deception
Desires for other things
The Bible also gives more examples of specific people who were not only attacked by Satan, but the specific weapon the devil used against them was money. The first example is that of Judas Iscariot: that he was attacked by Satan, there is no doubt, as John 13: 2 says, 'Dinner was being served and the devil has already incited Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus '. .
Furthermore, the method by which the devil incited Judas to betray Jesus was money. The scripture below is Matthew 26:14 and it shows how Judas was prepared to betray the Son of God for money. Despite walking with Jesus for 3 years and watching him perform healings, miracles, and deliverances, the devil offered Judas money and he sadly turned his back on Jesus and ultimately betrayed him.
HOW SATAN USES POWER LUSTRATION
Consider how much the lust for power is a major motivating force in this world. It can be seen operating in families, in workplaces, in churches and in commerce, and is possibly most visible in politics. We can see in all of these cases that people are doing what they can to gain power, often by whatever means available, fair or ugly. They are simply following the influence (I John 5:19) of the first who lusted after power: “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the far north sides; Above the heights of the clouds I will ascend, I will be like the Most High ”(Isaiah 14: 13-14).
While the world is struggling for power, God promises to give it to us as a by-product of enduring to the end. In this life, the only power we have to fight for is power over ourselves. In the next, God will provide the rest.
Those who seek power in this world miss the fact that our life is only for a moment. Even if they receive the power they seek, it only lasts an instant by comparison. Consider how long our power will last if we endure to the end: "The LORD knows the days of the upright, and his inheritance will last forever" (Psalm 37:18).
The vision that Scripture offers is so complete that none of us can truly comprehend its breadth. After all, this vision is actually God's own vision. Our minds are limited in what we can see, as Paul points out in I Corinthians 2: 9: “But as it is written: things that the eye has not seen, nor has the ear heard, nor have the things that God has come up into the heart of man. prepared for those who love him ”.
But with that said, God gives us the means, his Spirit (I Corinthians 2:10), to follow the example of our predecessors so that we, like them, will see a vision that will ensure our endurance to the end. Part of that vision involves identifying the things we hate about this evil world around us and then finding the scriptures that illuminate the vision of how God, together with us using the power He will give us, will create a new world devoid of these evils.
Each of us is unique, and the part of that vision that will motivate us will be equally unique. So before our burdens and afflictions begin to weigh us down, we can choose to prepare now (Matthew 25: 1-13) and take the time to identify the evils we hate. With that, we can begin to build a vision from Scripture that, through meditation and prayer, allows God to use His Spirit to make that vision as real as the present in such a way that, by comparison, we can say together with Christ. and Paul, "My burden is light" and my "slight tribulation is only for a moment."
