“Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.”
We have established from scriptures that God wants all men to be saved, but there are many adversaries out there to scuttle this divine agenda 1Tim. 2:4; 1Cor. 16:9. In essence, when men refuse or are reluctant to become born again, it is not them doing it, there is a devil behind the scene manipulating the individual 2Cor. 4:4. To see men saved therefore, it will be by application of relevant and adequate force Mat. 11:12. In essence, the believer cannot succeed in the soul winning task except by warfare.
How to win the war and be effective in soul winning.
The instruction of scriptures to the believer is that of compelling the unsaved into reconciliation with God Lk. 14:23; Eph. 5:8. Compelling does not mean to bully, rather it is being gentle but forceful on the unsaved in order for them to be saved
One thing the devil does is to discourage the new converts from being established in the faith and the church 2Pet. 2:20-22. We must be intentional in engaging the forces of the spirit to break the stronghold of the devil, out to make our new converts want to go back to their old life Eph. 6:10-12; Col. 4:12.
One thing that we all need in our walk with God is the grace of God 1Cor. 15:10. And grace is available to us as we place demand for it in prayers Heb. 4:16. For the new converts, we have the task to demand for it on their behalf, which will enable them to hold on and keep serving until they are rooted in God Acts 26:22.
Jesus is Lord!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I receive strength of the Holy Spirit for warfare in my soul winning endeavor thereby making me supernaturally fruitful from today Acts. 1:8.
Pray for all your converts since the beginning of this year, each one by name.
Grace to labor over your converts till their establishment in God is released now!
Nothing shall be strong enough to pull your converts back to their old life again!
