He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8(NKJV)
Again here is another Scripture that enlightens us on what true spiritual warfare is all about and how to deal with the devil.
The way Jesus dealt with, defeated, and destroyed the devil and his works was not by some kind of worked up warfare of struggling and sweating to overcome him like it’s taught in many churches today.
Jesus disarmed and destroyed the devil by simply manifesting!
To manifest is to make appear, to reveal. Jesus is light, while the devil is darkness. Light doesn’t struggle with darkness; it dispels it effortlessly by simply appearing.
Jesus is the Truth or reality while the devil is the lie, falsehood or deception. The truth doesn’t struggle with deception; it exposes and thus disarms it effortlessly by simply appearing.
Jesus the light of life did not struggle and sweat to overcome the devil. Jesus simply manifested Himself and that was the demise of the devil.
How was the Son of God manifested? As the Word of Life, as the Word of Truth.
Every time Jesus is revealed as the truth of our life the deception of death has no place to stay.
Talking, teaching, researching about, and fighting the devil, his demons and his works all the time isn’t the biblical way of dealing effectively with him.
Where the devil is holding people in the darkness and bondage of sin, sickness, and poverty the true spiritual warfare we should wage is to manifest Jesus Christ who is the light and liberty of righteousness, healing, health and wealth.
Get to know Jesus Christ, who He is, what He has done for you, who you’re in Him, what you have in him, what you can do in him. See yourself and walk in the light of these truths. That’s how you live and walk in victory over the devil and his works.
