“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:”
“But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.”
From scriptures, we understand that church growth is the will of God, and it is warfare Mat. 16:18. The growth of the church is against the gates of hell, which will not watch the church grow but will put up stiff resistance. The believer has the responsibility to work with God to deliver the growth of the church 1Cor. 3:6-10. This demands that the believer understand the battle, have adequate skill to engage in the warfare and deliver the supernatural growth of the church Psa. 144:1.
Understanding required for the believer to deliver church growth.
Our warfare is not with flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers Eph. 6:12. These are spiritual wicked forces in the heavenly places positioned to resist the enlargement of the church of Christ.
The scriptures show us the example of the king of Assyria, who became the devil’s tool used against the nation of Israel 1Kgs. 19:13-20. But God stopped the arrogance of this king by executing His judgment on him, to give Israel peace and progress 2Kgs. 19:32-37.
Satan has his agents whose mission is to scatter the flock of Christ in the church, they do these using words that weaken and discourage the faith of believers Acts 20:29-31; Mat. 12:30. The believer must stop the mouth of these satanic agents by feeding the flock with the pure word of God Acts 20:28,32.
Jesus is Lord!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I receive fresh empowerment of the Holy Spirit for victory in the warfare against the gates of hell, resulting in massive salvation of souls this 4th week of harvest Acts. 1:8.
Declare judgment on every satanic agent out to scatter Christ’s flock in the church and intending ones.
Every works of hell that has kept men from salvation is destroyed now!
I decree the outbreak of light resulting in massive salvation of souls from now!
