Hi folks. The Lord has made something clear to me and I want to pass it on to anyone who may read this blog. I’ve written several articles here about spiritual warfare. But I have came to realize that what I’ve been doing is writing about treating the symptoms instead of the disease. With this post I want to bring the matter to a conclusion. This is the atomic bomb of spiritual warfare. It doesn’t win individual battles it wins the war. Here it is in a nutshell. Any and all demonic oppression is caused by being outside of a right relationship with Jesus. People complain that mainstream churches don’t get involved in spiritual warfare. This is true but there’s a reason for it. The church attending Christian who is pursuing a walk with Jesus and is bringing everything to Him in prayer never has any run ins with demons. Demons don’t even have a toe hold to grab at these people with. As a result they never have to deal with demons. They know the bible is true so they know that demons exist but since they never have to deal with them they don’t give them much thought. They are focused on more important things such as seeking Jesus’ will. If you are having trouble with demons you can rest assured that there is something in your life that the Lord Jesus has a problem with. I’ve been blogging about demonic doors and how to close them. But I think I’ve been putting the cart in front of the horse. The bible says to seek the kingdom of heaven first. This isn’t talking about salvation. It’s written to people who are already saved. It’s talking about seeking Jesus’ Lordship over your life. Seeking His will and walking in it. If you do that the rest will take care of itself including the demonic doors. You wont be throwing your tarrot cards in the trash because you fear demons, you will be throwing them in the trash because you know the Lord Jesus hates them. Strive for a closer walk with Jesus. Bring everything to Him in prayer. If you don’t know His will on something ask Him about it and expect an answer. Don’t let it go stay on it. “Lord I need to know your will here, I’m not striking out on my own with this”. Remember Jesus’ parable of the persistent widow. He is telling us plainly to pray and not give up. I hesitate to put it this way but badger the Lord until you get an answer. He said He would give it to us and He will. It may not be the answer you want but whatever it is submit to it. Don’t try to rationalize a sin that you enjoy in order to keep it. Anything the Lord disapproves of is a demonic door. But again we shouldn’t be avoiding sin because we want to avoid demons we should be avoiding sin because we serve a Master who hates it. If we walk with the Lord, seek His will and strive to walk in it, any demon problems we may have had will fade into nothingness. Get out of enemy territory and we wont have to be dodging the enemy’s bullets. Why did it take me so long to realize this?
