Now, remember the enemy is the Chief Counterfeiter and if the Lord has given us these wonderful, good divine spirits from Heaven, the enemy also has manifested his own “seven-fold spirits” that he too has sent out to reach all mankind. His spirits are the complete opposite of our Precious Lord Jesus’ loving spirits – remember this at all times! Below is a great reference on how to REMOVE STRONGHOLDS OF THE ENEMY that I copied from another site (a site I belong to) and it is important you read and understand just how the good/evil spirits battle for us almost in a non-stop manner. My personal advice on the following is – LEARN IT, LIVE IT, LOVE IT!
In order for us to recognize when the enemy is at work in our lives, or the lives of others, we must first recognize the spirits that are working against us. It is rare that these evil spirits work alone, they usually work in groups. Our “Open Door” of unrepentant sin, demonic vows, un-forgiveness, soul-ties, generational curses, childhood rejection, and self-spoken curses can cause a legal right in the spirit realm for the enemy to attack us using various weapons. These weapons of evil have the Opposite fruits of the Fruits of the Spirit.
This is How Jesus Healed – HE was an INSTANT HEALER!
When Jesus Performed Miracles, He Performed them instantly, He walked in Full Authority. I see no scriptural evidence anywhere in the Bible that Jesus was an advocate for slow, painful, healing. No, He was an Instant Healer, “Yʼshua said to him, “You must immediately get up, you must at once take your pallet (mat) and you must continually walk” (John 5: 8-9)!
A SLOW Healing Jesus would say, “Okay, I’ll be back here in a couple of weeks. Think about your life, your pain, get in touch with yourself, learn about why you were crippled in the first place, and then I will be back and help begin to get off of that Mat, and you can try walking.” Okay….just the agony of that…whoa….Horrible.
WHAT if JESUS performed Miracles like this, these I am certain would be the Results:
Painful Results of SLOW HEALING:
Okay so the man would be there on the mat for weeks while the enemy and his minion would slowly torment the man. He would have “up” days and “down” days. People, the multitudes, would come up to him and scoff. He would begin to doubt and be under unnecessary afflictions. —Completely NOT Jesus’ WAY to Heal!
The Jesus in the Gospels was a Jesus of Miracles.
He Performed Instant Miracles in Matthew, Mark, Luke & John; 153 miracles while He Walked On Earth. These Gifts and Miracles are still available for us today under the Same Authority– Jesus!
In HIS own words He says, in John 14:12 – “Most assuredly I say to you, the one who believes in Me will do the works which I am doing and he will do even greater things that these, because I am going to the Father ; and whatever you would ask in My name, this I shall do, so that the Father would be glorified in the Son; whatever you would ask ME in My name I shall do!”
Paul tells us: Ephesians 4: 27 “Do not give ʻAʼ place for the devil.”
How do we recognize these spirits at work: By Fruit!
“By their Fruits Ye shall know them” – Matthew 7:20
The Fruit of the Spirits and the Work of the Flesh: (Galatians 5:16-21)
“But I say, may you walk in the spirit so that you not in any way fulfill any desire of the flesh. For flesh turns against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh, these things are opposed to one another, so that you would not do the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law of the flesh. And the words of the flesh are apparent, which are immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, outbreaks of selfishness, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing and like things.”
There is an easy way to take down these strongholds Quickly… Just Begin:
Find a time when you have no distractions. Set aside a full day, if possible. Be in prayer and fasting. Ask Jesus via the Holy Spirit to expose any sin or any area of your life that must be reconciled to the Lord. Write it down. Use the Worksheet that I have provided and write everything down. Mine took 3 days solid, at the end of the second day I had over 300 open doors, personal, generational and other areas without even knowing or understand how. Every instance from the time I was little and dabbled in things up to the real trouble during my Christian walk. These had become barriers to my Full and Fruitful Relationship with Christ Jesus!
After you write these down, you must go through these steps:
Repent, Renounce, Break & Bless. Then, after you have gone through the entire list Rip everything up! Do not make a Copy for Records. Remove it! You are Washed clean! Then Thank Jesus for your New Found Freedom to Walk in the Fruits of the Spirit, just like the disciples in Acts!
These will help you! Going through this Saved My Life and Helped me to Recognize the Enemy at Work and Learn to Hear From God. Opposers to this: You will have opposition. I ask this of you. By following these steps of Repentance, Are you going against Scripture in anyway? Are you opposed because there might be something in these lists or the Spirits at work in them that would cause you to NOT want to Break Free from the enemy! Do you have an area in your life that you choose to not go to Jesus about??
CHALLENGE: DO this and follow these Steps! Prove me Wrong! If YOU do NOT begin to See the Miracles of the Fruits of the Spirit in YOUR LIFE after completing this and taking this all before Jesus to ask for forgiveness – See if He doesnʼt open the outpouring of blessings in your life as you walk in greater freedom He will bless you!
“And to everyone to whom much was given, much will be sought from him, and to whom He entrusted much, He will ask him more.” Luke 12:28
What would Jesus Do? What would Jesus Tell YOU? Matthew 18:18
- Repent: Recognizing & Turning Away from Sin, Going to GOD and asking for Forgiveness. (Matt 3:8, Acts 3:19, John 3:16-21)
- Renounce “Bind” (or no longer agree with the spirits or demons that Have accesses, or legal right by the committing of sin to cause trouble.) — “You send them back to the Pit of Hell” (2 Cor 4:2, James 4:1-7)
3. Break: “Break all Ties” that they have over you! Clap loudly in Jesus NAME ! The must flee in Jesusʼ name!
4. Bless or Loose: The Holy Spirit and the Gifts 1 Corinthians 12:9-12
These are the Opposite Spirits and the Fruits at work in our Flesh:
Believers have the oppression of these spirits, and non-believers can have the indwelling of these spirits. These are also related to and their origins from the Canaanites, Gergashites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, & Jebusites -the 7 spirits of the ac. The opposite of the Seven-Fold Spirit of Christ Jesus in Heaven!
