Satan's Strategy Against the Church
Throughout this last decade,witches (yes, I did say "witches"!) have been fasting and chanting their evil "prayers" to the prince of darkness to bring about the destruction of Christian marriages and families, particularly of those in the ministry.
Whenever this concerted effort goes forth in the kingdom of darkness, unclean spirits begin to operate against good, moral family men and women with a vengeance.The demonic onslaught can become so great that, when the unclean spirits are finished with their dirty works, many of these normally moral people are left saying, "I knew it was wrong but I just couldn't help it. I kept flirting around with sin until it pulled me under."
The Plight of Those in Bondage
As a result of this devilish attack against the Body of Christ, hundreds of thousands of believers today feel as if they are out of control, usually in the areas of lust, pornography, sexual sin, and adultery. These Christians feel powerless to do anything about it.
Believers who are in bondage to sins of the flesh often feel forced to live by double standards, becoming what most would classify as hypocrites. They carry on the normal Christian activities of going to church, giving, and taking care of basic responsibilities toward their family and church. But there is a dark, secret side of their lives where they feel trapped, not knowing what to do or who to turn to. They won’t talk to people who are closest to them because they can’t bear the thought of letting down those who love them the most.
We’re going to look first at how the devil attempts to carry out this monumental strategy of evil and destruction against believers. Then I want to show you how those who have become ensnared by sins of the flesh can embark on a journey back to close fellowship with God.
You see, God doesn’t advocate these types of sins in any way, shape or form. But we need to understand that, whenever a believer yields to the devil’s temptations, he is the victim of a well-planned, highly organized scheme. It is a demonic strategy that shows no mercy and takes people apart, one emotional thread at a time, until all resistance is gone.
God is well aware of the enemy’s strategies. That’s why He has provided a way for His wayward children to step back from the brink of spiritual destruction and return to a life of freedom and peace.
Tools of the Enemy
Now, it’s important to understand that Satan has no favorites. Even though he may succeed in causing someone to cooperate with him in witchcraft and rituals of sacrifice, he still hates that person as much as he does anyone else. He just wants to use the person for his own evil purposes -- to cause other people, especially Christians, to fall.
So as long as it serves the purpose Satan is consumed with, he will instruct his unclean spirits and rulers of darkness to do the bidding of his followers. It delights the devil when he can get human beings to actually fast and pray for the destruction of ministers, the family unit, and Christian morals.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Gal. 5: 1 (kjv)
