“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.”
God’s will is the continuous and supernatural growth of His church Mat. 16:18; Pro. 4:18. The responsibility of church growth rest on the shoulder of every believer Jn. 15:16; Mk. 15:15-17; Mat. 28:18-20. Until the believer takes up this responsibility, God the builder of His church cannot bring growth to His church 1Cor. 3:6. One principal job of the believer in this wise is to confront the gates of hell that are in opposition to church growth Mat. 16:18. The way to do this is for the believer to invoke the judgment of God on the powers of darkness, by demanding of God the judgment He has commanded in His word on the wicked Psa. 149:7-9; Ezr. 7:26.
The way of victory over opposition to church growth.
From scriptures, God makes it clear that He is committed to open great doors to His church for supernatural growth 1Cor. 16:9. But to every door that God opens, there are many adversaries that attempt to render the door unproductive.
The devil only has occasion when men is asleep, but when the believer is on their feet the enemy loses every ground. Therefore, we must arise from sleep and contend with the powers of darkness that wants to keep the church on the same spot Deu. 2:24; Isa. 63:4.
The bible shows us clearly how Apostle Paul stood against and handed over men like Hymenaeus and Alexander to the devil. By this he stopped them from polluting those that were ordained for salvation 1Tim. 1:19-20.
The church of Christ on the earth is in her great days, when God ahs ordained her to become the most attractive place on the earth. The believer has to accept the responsibility to make the season deliver fully. As we accept this awesome responsibility, we become entitled for divine rewards that make live become enviable Pro. 10:22.
