A Word About Strongman Spirits
I just want to say a word about strongman spirits before we go too far. Jesus said, Matthew 12:29 – “Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.” and Mark 3:27 – “No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.”
Each of these demons are under Satan or Lucifer, whatever you want to call him. They have generals in charge of them or strong man spirits. So often I will find a need to bind the strong man spirit in charge of whatever demon has come around me or I’ve identified. Once you bind him and he’s gone, the lesser demons, he has sent to you, all scatter, ‘cos they don’t have a commander.
Jesus loves you. He died for you, so that you could be saved from sin and have the power He had to rebuke these demons and cast them out. Don’t be afraid or intimidated by them. Just like you’re not scared of the demons we’ve talked about, so you don’t need to be afraid of the strongman spirits. They are under you, because you are in Christ – the oppression breaker. God told Eve this would be the case Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." So even though he can strike our heel, we crush, not just strike, crush, his head – that’s Lucifer we’re talking about folks.
Look, the demons need you to do anything. They can only work if you allow them to use you. The gates of hell will not prevail. Jesus has the keys to the gates of hell. Lucifer’s main aim is to prove that God is not God and he, Lucifer is equal to him and is in fact God and he’s going to go with that ‘til the end. So know you’ll be in battle until God takes you out of here.
Recently, the Lord let me know that many are depending on me making it. Many are depending on us persevering, not giving up, not getting tired, even if we get sick. Keep going, if you can and at least you can praise and worship the Lord and that is throwing mighty swords at the enemy. Also, know that when you’re weak, God knows, and He knows what you can do and He will take up the slack, where you are weak. He will do it. He will do it. He will do it.
