by David Jeremiah, from Sanctuary
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. — 2 Corinthians 10:4
The ultimate victory has been won at Calvary, but it will be implemented in the future. The sentence has been passed; now it needs to be enforced. The enforcement is in the hands of the church. The tool that enforces Satan’s defeat is the tool of prayer.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. — 2 Corinthians 10:4–5
One person praying on earth can move angels in Heaven.
Christians need to learn the power of prayer against Satan, for he will be defeated in his work. We are not engaged in the warfare if we are not praying against Satan. The judgment that was effected at the cross and is enforced through prayer will be completed. Satan is doomed. Satan is on a leash, and he is only free on earth to the length of his chain. He cannot go beyond God’s permission. But if we don’t enforce his judgment in our own lives, we will be victims instead of victors.
