Today is DAY 7 of the 21 days MIDNIGHT PRAYERS.
TIME: 12:00am – 1:00am (Nigerian Time). Kindly start the prayers at exactly 12:00am
Luke 11:21 says, When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
Mark 3:27 says, No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
Isaiah 49:24-25 says, Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
Binding the Strongman is a tough spiritual exercise. Strongman is a very notorious spirit. The Bible commands us to bind the strongman first. Strongman is a power that is found where wickedness is practiced. A strongman does not have to be a gigantic person but what makes them strong is the demonic power that it carries. If given access, it will penetrate into your destiny to filter out or steal the good parts of your destiny.
If you can identify the strongman attach to your life, binding them will be much easier. Remember the strongman can never steal all your destinies. They will hijack the most effective ones and leave the rest for you to contend with. The strongman is a thief, deceiver and destroyer (John 10:10).
The Bible encourages us to bind them first and take away our blessings held up in their custody. It is very important as Christians to keep binding this powers until they finally surrender and die. The Bible says, Matthew 11:12 ,And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BINDING THE STRONGMAN?
- Binding the strongman means exercising the power of God.
- Binding the strongman means you are trying to escape from satanic bondage.
- Binding the strongman means you are waging war against your enemies.
- Binding the strongman means you are about to take away your goods.
- Binding the strongman means you are driving out demons.
Strongman could rise up at the edge of your miracle. Strongman can be found at the war front. You can find them in the marriage. You can likewise find them in the village etc. A strange woman is a strongman to your marriage! Poverty could also be a strongman to you! Bad luck could be one of them too. The “strong man” is Satan who possesses, or works in human beings by means of his wicked spirits or operation.
When God did not lead you to fight a particular enemy or a strongman, but you ignorantly go and strike the spirit, though you may achieve victory or not. If it happens you achieve outstanding victory, congratulations but God may not be there to protect and hide you from their reinforcement. David discovered his strongman was Goliath. David knows where his strongman and his team resides (1 Sam 17:50) Before he discovered, God has instructed and guaranteed him of his protection.
This is the greatest mistake of many Christians of “I have the power of God” without any proof. They go and disturb their enemies who are not even after them. Instead, the battle becomes double. The affliction is multiplied. Some of this strongman will tie their hands and legs and dump them in their cage!
Strongman is not a “baby spirit” that you can just fight and go to sleep. It is a power that has a strong power-base source. That is, they operate in anywhere in any given country with their sophisticated wicked network. If you attack them without the power of God in you, they may likely imprison you and your expectation. You can hardly see a person or marriage who never been tormented one way or the other by strongman in the physical or through dreams. But the power of God has been given to us in Luke 10:19 to fight them to victory.
Job 5:12 says, he disappointed the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
It is a big problem when you are fighting a strongman you don’t know how it operate. For example, If a particular strongman is operating in one location, and you are targeting your prayers at them in another location such prayers may not work faster than when you know them by their location. If you are under the manipulation of the strongman, you may not prosper! So many people are a slave to the strongman.
Whatever the strongman ask them to do in the spirit they will obey. Unless a strongman is binded completely, it will be hardly to collect your goods and receive deliverance. If there is a strongman in your family, the strongman will take care of the destiny of that family line.
If a person breaks or separates himself or herself from their stronghold, they double their aggression on the rest of the family. This is why problem begins to arises in the family. Brethren, if you are going to herbalist to seek powers, you are under the power of the strongman. Young woman, if you still think sleeping around with men will make you stay away from loneliness and marital delay, you are under the bondage of strongman. If your dream life is so terrible, I can also tell you that you are under the influence of strongman power. Strongman is so devastating that it can follow or escort you anywhere you go.
WHY DID THE STRONGMAN ATTACK YOU?
1. It is because your glory is mighty
2. It is because God is about to turn your life around
3. It is because they don’t want you to celebrate the divine blessings
4. It is because your prayers are disturbing them
5. It is because you have their secret operation
6. It is because you shared your information or good news to them etc
Before you are thinking of binding the strongman power, have you received the power of God. Read this article to pray for the power of the Holy Ghost. The power of God is essential in dealing with the strongman powers. Thereafter, how is your sinful life? Do you think your sin will protect you in fighting back the enemy in warfare battle (Isaiah 59:2)? Brethren, you can deceive yourself but you cannot deceive God. If you fail to do the right thing by true confession and repentance of your sins, you will keep praying in vain. Title or no title, pastor or no pastor, ask God for power, wisdom and mercy!
