Heavenly Father, In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we come to you today and ask that you open and prepare our minds and hearts for the truths given to us through The Word! We humbly ask Father that you guide us and protect us during these times of study and learning. We desire to learn your ways Lord. Please help us. Please teach us. Help us to be willing and honest with ourselves. Help us to discern the truths contained in this teaching.
In Jesus Christ’s name we ask.
God never promised us that being a Christian meant a life of no problems. Actually the Word of God tells us exactly the opposite. In John 16:33 it explains the world we live in.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Through and because of Jesus we can find peace and overcome the evil. Tribulations that come from the world are our biggest problem. It manifests in institutions, other people and even in some family members. We all are exposed to it. Evil does exist.
Christians from all over the world have been writing The Joseph Plan, pleading for answers. You are not alone. Asking questions like:
“Help me? I am tormented by evil spirits and haven’t slept for weeks…”
“”Can someone help us? My two daughters and I are hearing voices and weird sounds in our house and are at wits end. Nothing that we have done has……”
“Pastor Thomas, I have developed very irrational fears and I am imagining all kinds of odd things. I am having nightmares that wake me up in a cold sweat. It is terrible!!!”
“It had gotten so severe in our apartment building that a vase came sailing across our living room and hit my husband in the back of his head. There was only he and myself in our home at the time. It almost scared him to death. Thank-you for all the Word inspired teachings on this vital subject. Our church never talks about it. I think they are scared to touch it. We wanted it all, so we bought your marvelous spiritual warfare book and are truly blessed. Now we both are taking our God given position over the demonic and finally finding peace. Thank-you Pastor.”
These questions and many more are all covered in this teaching from The Joseph Plan. There are many teachings onsite and I offer the Biblical Spiritual Warfare Manual to all as your comprehensive companion study guide. It is a resource manual.
The Biblical Spiritual Warfare Manual is by far my most in depth and comprehensive attempt at sharing the information I have been taught and the experiences I have accumulated over the last twenty years about Spiritual Warfare and Deliverance. It is the study guide for this teaching series. And no one has an excuse for not having one, because if you cannot afford the price I will send you a pdf copy free of charge. (FREE) See the instructions at the bottom of this teaching.
Where do we start?
The first key to overcoming the evil within or around oneself is coming to grips with the reality of the spirit world. God is SPIRIT. The Devil is SPIRIT. The Angels are SPIRIT, The Demons are SPIRIT. The spirit world is real, just existing in a different dimension than the one we live in, but very real and active.
We need to understand that God, in His Word, says that Lucifer went into revolt as well as one third of all the angels and was kicked out of the heavenly dimension into ours.
We must make an admission to ourselves that they are real and possess certain powers. We need to accept the fact that some or probably many of the problems in our life are caused by these demonic entities, Spirits or Demons.
The second key is acknowledging within your innermost self that God IS and no other created being is higher or more powerful than Him. He and only He, Jesus Christ, has the power and the authority to take dominion and command over ALL members of the spiritual world.
If you belong to a church or group that understands and teaches this reality and has given you the tools to deal with it, you are blessed. The biggest problem in getting solid spiritual warfare teachings into the hands of the layman Christian is the lack of teaching that the demonic world and thus the spiritual powers are real and can be dealt with.
What a contrast between teaching and conducting spiritual warfare in America versus so many of the other countries of the world. There is a big contrast between teaching spiritual warfare in the USA and in overtly dark regions.
Most churches in America and thus many Christians do not recognize the reality and power of Satan today. They just don’t get it that Satan has infiltrated so much of their lives, even within the church. There is very little formal spiritual warfare teaching and thus very little spiritual warfare practiced.
The situation in other areas or countries is quite different however. We are ministering worldwide. We have communicated by email recently to Christians in New Zealand and various countries in Africa and find a startling different problem there. There the demonic is horribly evident or obvious. It is very well understood who the enemy is. The primary problem is that many of these wonderful men of God, when they were called, picked up the bible and started a study and maybe a church, with very little actual training in spiritual warfare. There are isolated places with very good spiritual warfare teachings. But much needs to be done. These pastors are eager to find THE SOLUTION. They are keenly aware of who the enemy is.
The problem of teaching spiritual warfare is different from continent to continent. Below is a comparison chart I was sent that displays the differences.
|AMERICA and other countries being deceived||KNOWN DARK COUNTRIES|
|IGNORANT, SKEPTICAL of demonic activity||AWARE, CONVINCED of demonic activity|
|Demonic LAST RESORT, if ever||Demonic ALWAYS CONSIDERED|
|USA founded in LIGHT, turning to DARKNESS||In past DARKNESS, now LIGHT coming|
|SUBTLE, HIDDEN work of Satan||OPEN, OBVIOUS work of Satan|
|CAMOUFLAGED activities, GRAY to hide it||OVERT EVIL evident, DARK clearly shown|
|Christians UNTRAINED, FEARFUL of demons||Christians, many are UNTRAINED but TRYING|
|Demons, Satan GROWING STRONGER||Demons, Satan slowly LOSING GROUND|
The failure of modern churchianity
A stark contrast! Most American churches today are not teaching and equipping the saints for the battles we all face. They don’t seem to realize that there is a need for spiritual warfare teaching.
Gaining the proper knowledge and understanding that Satan is real and the need for Spiritual Warfare training is the first step in becoming an Overcomer. It doesn’t matter what country you live in, we all should strive to learn what the Lord has given us to help us.
Satan’s work in America is far more subtle than in many places. Few churches recognize and teach that Satan is real in America. Here Satan works behind the scenes and within the halls of the churches and the government. Satan works overtime in making sin and all its consequences “socially acceptable”. Yet the outcome is the same as in countries where the demonic is more overt. The result is bondage, bondage to sin and all that it entails. In America Satan is actually more dangerous, because he does much of his work in secret and is not being exposed. That’s the difference between the USA and many other countries. In America (Babylon) today, sin rules and thus does not get treated. Like any disease, if it isn’t recognized and diagnosed it is more dangerous than one whose symptoms are obvious and given the proper treatment.
No wonder so many are experiencing demonic oppression and attacks.
Paul says we should not be unaware of Satan’s ways and traps (2 Corinthians 2:5-11). In this country most Christians don’t recognize Satan’s tactics and many don’t even believe he exists and are not prepared to fight against him. In parts of the world they know he exists and they know Satan’s evil ways and recognize him as the enemy. Recognizing evil is half the battle.
Satan’s power is growing worldwide, because it is turning toward sin and further away from Jesus’ ways. His power is growing in ways we could never have imagined.
Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
Do you see sin increasing around you and righteousness fading? Do you see the demonic rising? There is a direct correlation between sin in and around us and the power of the demonic. Sin gives the demonic permission to operate and gives the demonic its strength.
As a nation or local community becomes tolerant of sin the powers of the demonic increase. Allow sin into your life and the natural consequence is that you will be attacked and harassed by the demonic. You can even become physically sick. As society accepts sinful ways to become the norm, it is giving the demonic “legal permission to operate” and to “possess and use” its institutions and people. The Devil knows this and is taking every opportunity to take advantage of the situation. The opposite of sin is righteousness.
1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
When we repent of the sin in our life and are saved, we are given the gift of righteousness. Righteousness is the breastplate we need that protects us in any spiritual battle. It is part of the armor of God that He gives us so we can stand upright and use all the spiritual weapons at our disposal.
Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
The breastplate of righteousness protects us from the flaming arrows of temptation that the enemy uses against us.
Our enemy is crafty. He comes against us in many different ways. He is always there, always hanging around, waiting for the opportune time to attack or use us for his purposes. Which are never for the good. Remember the devil and all his minions (demons) hate the righteous and want to kill or destroy us. He is the source of all lies and is working full time to deceive and destroy your relationship with the Lord.
There are two primary battle fronts in spiritual warfare. Two battle lines that must both be addressed.
Whether your battle is with the enemy around you or the enemy within, there is help in God’s Word. There are lessons we can all use to be Overcomers in this war for our souls and lives.
The first and most important is the battle front that lies within us, the war for our mind and soul. This battle is conducted through deliverance. We need to be delivered from the grips or attacks of the demonic and into the loving hands of Jesus. When we talk about deliverance it isn’t just for people who are “possessed” with the devils demons. It is also the process for any Christian to free themselves from sinful thoughts or actions (sin) that may provide a demonic influence in their lives. Yes, a Christian can have a demon. Paul of the New Testament had a demon and if he did—so can we.
In order to be free of spiritual attacks or demonic oppression, we need to have Deliverance. Deliverance from the root causes of spiritual oppression. Deliverance is being set free, free from all that is oppressing you. One receives deliverance in a three stage process. You have to get involved and do all of the stages in order for it to be successful. If one skips any of them or can’t be honest with themselves, deliverance will most likely not be successful. Spiritual Warfare most likely will fail if you aren’t sincerely thorough.
The stages of Deliverance are:
1 Identify and tear down the strongholds that have given the demonic permission.
2 Remove the legal rights that the demonic has acquired.
3 Cast out the demons to be set free.
Once these three stages are completed one must then fill the spiritual house that was just cleaned with the spirit of Jesus, the Holy Spirit. Repentance and Obedience are at the foundation and we discuss those in later chapters.
If you try to cast out a demon without first dealing with the reason it is affecting you in the first place, it will result in an unsuccessful deliverance. Removing the root sin (or curse) that is giving the demonic its authority is crucial to completing a successful deliverance. You may be able to temporarily remove the demon, but you will not have taken away the stronghold that allowed it to be there in the first place. I explain the process of discovering what your part is in being set free from demonic oppression in later chapters of this course and explicitly in the course manual.
The research, experience and learning’s of some of the best Spiritual Warfare teachers are contained in the “Biblical Spiritual Warfare Manual. Review the introduction and chapter one with this lesson.
Let’s do this in the proper order.
This process has to start with our admission that we aren’t God. But there is ONE and His name is Yeshua. That we aren’t perfect and that only God, Jesus Christ is, for He is fully God and today sits in heaven, over all with the Father. Once we can make that confession we can accept that we are, by our inner nature, a sinner. Sin is the root of our spiritual problems. Especially willful sins, acts or behaviors that we choose to do in spite of God’s will for us. Willful, repetitive, unrepentant sin gives the demonic special permission to establish a stronghold in our body and mind from which they can have a very powerful place to operate from.
The second battlefront, that we are all soldiers of, is in the outside world. It is the front line where the enemy uses other people, places and things to attack and destroy us. Remember Satan’s goal, which is to kill or destroy all, especially the righteous!
That is the part of Spiritual Warfare that most people relate to when they first hear the subject. In later chapters, I give a very thorough teaching on what is involved in arming oneself for this type of spiritual warfare. You will not have to be a victim any longer. You are about to receive the knowledge and tools to be an overcomer over all evil in your life.
You are starting a learning process that may change your life. It is truly one of the most exciting areas of our faith and it is so under taught. You are beginning the process of learning how to allow the spirit of God, the Holy Spirit within you, to rise up and overcome ALL EVIL. We serve such a wonderful and loving God. Through Him you can become one of the overcomers. Guaranteed!
