2 Corinthians 10:4 - The weapons we use in our fight are not the world's weapons, but God's powerful weapons with which to destroy strongholds.
WE DEAL WITH THE DEVIL BY DEALING WITH THE CARNAL THOUGHT SYSTEMS, THE STRONGHOLDS, THAT PROTECT THE ENEMY. THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONGHOLDS BEGINS WITH REPENTANCE.
THE ENERGIES WE EXPEND IN KEEPING OUR SINS SECRET ARE THE ACTUAL "MATERIALS" OF WHICH A STRONGHOLD IS MADE. THE DEMON YOU ARE FIGHTING IS USING YOUR THOUGHTS TO PROTECT HIS ACCESS TO YOUR LIFE.
John 17:16,17 - They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
WE'VE BEEN PLACED IN ANOTHER WORLD; OUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN.
WE ARE TO LIVE BY HEAVENLY PRINCIPLES, AND ONE OF THOSE PRINCIPLES IS THAT OF FRAMING OUR WORLD WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
I DON'T CONFESS WHAT I DON'T HAVE - I CONFESS WHAT I DESIRE TO HAVE.
I DON'T TALK ABOUT WHAT I CAN'T DO - I TALK ABOUT WHAT I CAN DO THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
GOD HAS DONE HIS PART - HE SENT JESUS.
THE HOLY SPIRIT INDWELLS ME, AND I HAVE GOD'S WORD. I USE IT TO FRAME MY WORLD.
