Devil’s Craft that he uses in the church
The scriptures admonishes us that the devil is very crafty and subtile in nature, conniving and scheming out plans to thwart the will and purpose of God.
And this is why we must be at alert and beware at all times at this roaring lion seeking whom to devour.
The storms that are ravaging the church today are all crafted and scripted by Satan to ensure the mission and purpose of the church is defeated because he knows he is a loser and has no victory over the church because it is founded in the blood of Jesus..
Just like the law of physics which says, for every action there is an opposite reaction,
Our keen opposition and enemy of the church is Satan and here are some of the tools he uses to besiege the church :
Division and Factions
Satan knows that he can’t defeat a united church hence he seeks to split and divide to be bring the purpose to nought.
One thing Satan fears and even God is aware of is a united people and church.
Satan has thrown in the seeds of division, discord and factions in our midsts to distract us from the real mission of the church.
Christ is indeed the head of the church but Satan sends a massive attack to his representative on earth in the church.
Satan is responsible for what is happening to leadership in the church.
He has attacked the leadership consistently because he knows that leadership is a driving boat to the success of the church.
Deafness to the spirit
Satan knows this church is the church of the holy spirit, a spiritual church and hence it is very important for us to hearken to the voice of the spirit as guide and lead in the sails of the world. He first deadens and deafens our spiritual ears so that we would not be able to hear ourselves or what the spirit of God is saying to us
Hence Satan made a confusion first that we dont come into agreement with each other, ad don’t listen to each other in oneness and we have become so deaf to what the spirit of God is saying.
Now we see ourselves as enemies and oppositions than brethren in Christ in the Lord’s fold placing us at the back of each other
This is one of Satan’s strategy, to ensure we are no longer in sync with the spirit.
Carnality is the reign of a satanic reality… The love of money, affluence, flesh, worldliness, women and ranks, big promotions than the things of heaven are signs of carnality.
Until we wake up to the spirit, the church will continue to slumber in large numbers.
Drunk to a devastating Degree
Rather than be drunk with the holy spirit, he ensures we are drunk with the things of the flesh, now we are saturated and filled with the acts of the flesh
First he intoxicates us with pride, and next is the love of the world, and then arrogance and disrespect and lastly love.
Right now we are enjoying that wine of the flesh than the wine of the spirit (the blood of the Jesus)
