According to testimonies by people once devil worshipers, the devil has favorite techniques that he uses to wrestle and defeat Christians. this is what we are going to discuss
1 . Lust and immorality
2. Money and wealth
3. Lust for Power
1 HOW DEVIL USES IMMORALITY
Immorality – This is one of the favorite devil trick because he know the power of sleeping with people against will of God.
I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Fornication opens up your spiritual gates and makes you prone to attacks. Through this illicit relationship, Satan injects his venom into the destiny of my children. Demons gain entrance, bite and suck blood. S3x outside marriage destroys all forms of spiritual immunity and protection. It is a dangerous adventure.
“It doesn’t end with just cheating on your spouse but the seed of hatred is sown into your heart against your spouse in the process. When you exchange money for relations with a satanic agent you engage in the transaction of exchanging your finances for evil desires. It is a very successful and effective means of rendering people, especially men, who are breadwinners of their families penniless.
“No one that flirts can defeat Satan. When men commit sleeping sins, Satan gains victory over them. The man who knows how to pray and exercises authority through my word of power is dangerous to the works of darkness. But he who can do this yet womanizes is an empty vessel – a clanging cymbal.
“Thousands of men reproductive releases are taken to the Marine kingdom world each day. Woe to that man whose release is taken to the water kingdoms! His destiny and life can be devoured by the devil without much stress because His seeds are already caged. He can be accessed through his seeds. His future is not hid from his enemies and Satan himself. He lives at the mercy of the devil, unless he gets delivered in time. It removes divine provision and makes men to struggle in life.
Pre-marital relations especially is the easiest way through which people are initiated into the kingdoms of darkness. Virgins that are not bonded to anybody through relations are Satan’s target. They are like new ropes that tie better. They bond easily with demonic attachments because they have no soul-tie or spiritual bonds. No one who breaks this law has ever succeeded in life. When I say succeed, I mean according to my design of such individual’s destiny.”
2. HOW DEVIL USES MONEY AND WEALTH
Money is without doubt a major battlefield between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Darkness on both a personal level and a corporate level because a Christian, and ultimately a church, without money will be hampered in their ability to undertake the Great Commission. Moreover, the devil will use money as a temptation to put before the people of God and will set it as a snare to catch the people of God. This particular section will take a biblical survey of the devil using money as a major weapon against the people of God money is like a double-edged sword that we can either use or be used against us – as we walk in righteousness in our finances we can grasp the sword and slay our enemies with it.
In Mark 4:1-20, Jesus tells the parable of the sower which he declares was the most important of all his parables as he says in verse 13, ‘Don’t you understand this parable?
How then will you understand any parable’. Jesus declares that the devil will attack the word of God that has been sown in our hearts and below are listed the devices that Jesus said the devil will use. Notice how two of the weapons of the devil are the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things (notice that the word desires i.e. plural, is used)
- Worries of this life
- The deceitfulness of wealth
- Desires for other things
The bible also gives further examples of specific people who not only were attacked by Satan but the specific weapon that the devil used against them was money. The first example is that of Judas Iscariot – that he was attacked of Satan there is no doubt as John 13:2 says, ‘The evening meal was being served and the devil has already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus’.
Moreover the method by which the devil prompted Judas to betray Jesus was money the scripture below is Matthew 26:14 and it shows how Judas was prepared to betray the Son of God for money. Despite walking with Jesus for 3 years and seeing him perform healings, miracles and deliverances, the devil offered Judas money and he sadly turned his back on Jesus and eventually betrayed him.
HOW SATAN USES LUST FOR POWER
Consider how much the lust for power is a major motivating force in this world. It can be seen operating in families, in workplaces, in churches, and in commerce—and possibly, it is most visible in politics. We can see in all of these instances that people are doing what they can to obtain power, often by any means available, fair or foul. They are just following the influence (I John 5:19) of the one who first lusted for power: “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High’” (Isaiah 14:13-14).
While the world is struggling to get power, God promises to give it to us as a byproduct of enduring to the end. In this life, the only power we have to strive for is power over ourselves. In the next, God will provide the rest.
Those who seek power in this world miss the fact that our life is but for a moment. Even if they do receive the power they seek, it lasts only for an instant in comparison. Consider how long our power will last if we endure to the end: “The LORD knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever” (Psalm 37:18).
The vision Scripture provides is so all-encompassing that not one of us can truly comprehend its breadth. After all, this vision is actually God’s own vision. Our minds are limited in what we can see, as Paul points out in I Corinthians 2:9: “But as it is written: eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
But with that said, God gives us the means, His Spirit (I Corinthians 2:10), to follow the example of our predecessors so that we, like them, will see a vision that ensures our enduring to the end. Part of that vision involves identifying the things we hate about this evil world around us and then finding the scriptures that illumine the vision of how God will—together with us using the power He will give us—create a new world devoid of these evils.
Each of us is unique, and what part of that vision will motivate us will likewise be unique. So, before our burdens and afflictions begin to weigh us down, we can choose to prepare now (Matthew 25:1-13) and take the time to identify the evils we hate. With that, we can begin building a vision from Scripture that, through meditation and prayer, allows God to use His Spirit to make that vision as real as the present to the effect that, in comparison, we will be able to say along with Christ and Paul, “My burden is light” and my “light affliction . . . is but for a moment.”
