TOPIC: Winning Strange Battles
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 22:53; Col. 1:13; Col 2:15
Isaiah 53:5“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
MESSAGE: That there are strange battle needs no argument. Agents of darkness are doing all kinds of things in order to bring complexities to the lives of men and women. These are the night raiders that go about recruiting people, familiar spirits, forest demons, etc.
This reminds me of a young couple. They got married in the city and for some strange reasons, decided to go and spend their honeymoon in the man’s village. They got there and lodged in the best hotel there. While they were sleeping in the middle of the night, the man began to hear footsteps from the gate. He heard the sound of someone opening the gate.
Before this time, they had had a bombardment of noise from night creatures like frogs, crickets, owl, etc. But, all of a sudden, there was dead silence everywhere. The evil personality stood by the window and fixed its gaze on the woman who was fast asleep. The man wanted to shout but he could not. He wanted to call Jesus, but he could not. He wanted to lift his hand, but he could not do so as well.

After a while, the evil personality went away and it was then the sounds of night creatures started again. By 5 a.m. in the morning, the man woke his wife and they ran away from the village. They did not stay for the honeymoon again. But, the deed had already been done. The following month, when this woman was to see her menstrual period, what was coming out of her were maggots instead of the normal blood. The following month too, it was equally maggots. It was this strange problem of maggots planted in her by the night raiders that brought them for prayers.
Beloved, if you refuse to fight the battles that the enemy has confronted you with, the situation will become more complex. But, the Bible says, that God has delivered us from the kingdom of darkness. We are now enjoying the glorious light of God’s kingdom.
Your victory is assured, through the Lord Jesus Christ. Run to Him and He will make a way for you.
The higher the height you have gained on the ladder of success the more enemies and attackers you will attract.
Any battle the enemy has brought your way from the past, that battle shall die in the name of Jesus.
