The biggest bane of a believer is limited (or lack of) knowledge.
This absence of (or limited) knowledge throws open the door to fear and confusing doctrines.
Rather than focus on growth, development and becoming the best version of Yeshua’s replica that s/he can be, a believer will continue to contend with evil forces? Fighting demonic forces, carrying cutlass to church to cut the devil and his cohorts.
My grouse with denominations whose belief system is centered around demonic forces is that they lack the ability to properly teach and instruct, hence room is given to various self developed theories. These doctrines create fear rather than growth and spiritual renewal.
So anytime I read human epistles backing the need to continually fight evil forces I cringe and wonder how long believers will continue to operate from a position of disadvantage.
Two passages describes your authority in details.
…that power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. Ephesians 1:19-21 NIV
…and God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus… Ephesians 2:6 NIV
Don’t these two passages mean anything?
What’s with believers and enemies of their fathers house?
Who’s exchanging their destinies?
Are destinies yams, that someone can just pick up and exchange with fufu?
Enemies have been falling and dying, has anything changed?
Incorrect doctrines makes you focus on trivial things that do not matter.
The formulation of your authoritative words in the place of prayers is solely dependent on your spiritual knowledge that is taught to you by the Holy Spirit. For instance, when the Lord Jesus taught his disciples to pray, he didn’t focus on demonic presence. Read again Luke 10:17-20; what does it tell you?
Stay in your position of authority and focus on things that matter. Allowing the Holy Spirit to direct your prayer life will help you focus on the right prayers ejoor. Matthew 6:33.
Friends, if we are seated with Jesus, then we are above all things. We fight our battles from a vantage position. We are victorious already. Rule, reign, dominate, flourish, bring to subjection. That’s who you are. That’s who you are made to be. Don’t let incomplete doctrines render your authority as a believer useless.
Read your bible and understand His words. Follow the Holy Spirit. Don’t be lazy joor!
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17 NIV
