Proverbs 6 (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

These totally make sense! And I’m sure every human on the face are guilty of at least one in their lifetime.



The first one is the one that got Lucifer in trouble! There are different versions of pride. You can be proud of your son/daughter for the accomplishments they made in school and have a sense of pride…but truthfully the first one reminded me of the pride which Lucifer/Satan has for the accomplishments he has performed. That must be exactly why GOD put this one up on top! You know GOD created everything and HE feels that same sense of pride with us, but HE also gets angry when we sin against HIM.

ANYTHING good in us is the result of Jesus Christ in us.

  • Rolling the eyes in response to something said to them,
  • Looking down on someone younger, different, or less intelligent
  • Setting themselves up as the judge of others
  • Thinking they are wiser than their parents and other elders
  • Criticizing parents and other authorities
  • Arguing with parents
  • Disobeying and openly rebelling against authorities
  • Ingratitude
  • Boasting about one’s accomplishments, status, or knowledge
  • Disrespect



Again, this one reminds me of Satan. HE lies to himself, and because fo him many, many angels fate are sealed. He lies to us all to accomplish his goals. After all, he is the father of lies.


  • Not telling the truth about a wrongdoing
  • Withholding information that others need to have
  • Hypocritical words
  • Flattering to gain something from someone
  • Exaggerating the facts
  • Implying that something is true, or purposely leading someone to an incorrect assumption
  • Telling partial truths
  • Not honoring parents’ rules when they are absent
  • Not offering evidence against a wrongdoer when necessary
  • Committing to doing something with no real intention of following through
  • Making excuses
  • Blaming others for own sinful actions



This refers to murder. Cold-blooded murder. But, although we may have never committed murder, Jesus Christ reminds us that hating someone unreasonably, without offering forgiveness has committed a sin equivalent to murder. That’s a deep one!

  • Bullying
  • Hitting, biting, kicking, hurting others
  • Striking parents
  • Carelessly abusing or killing animals for amusement



This encompasses thinking of conceiving evil against one another. Considering the state of our world…there’s no wonder blackness seeps out of every pore of humanity.

  • Plotting revenge
  • Snubbing someone
  • Conspiring to deceive or hurt someone
  • Lying about a long series of actions in order to cover sin



Poor Eve in the Garden of Eden didn’t have a clue as to the extent of her decision, or did she? There is only One Soul which can honestly deny this accusation…Jesus Christ. And thank you, Jesus for the salvation which you brought to us by your unwavering act of selfishness. Dying on the cross for us was no easy accomplishment. And He did it even though He knew that billions of souls would reject Him and The Father in heaven.

Do do it! Wherever it was/is that your are thinking. We are all guilty if at least ‘thinking’ of performing evil, and if we stop it in the brain before it became behavior, and acted upon it…then we are still guilty of conceiving the thought but at that point we can humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness.

  • Joining with others to do wrong when the authority is not present
  • Delighting in doing wrong



Lies are deplorable to GOD! Although it may seem like it’s a duplicate of the “lying tongue”…and it is to a certain extent…but this one drags someone other than yourself into the picture. When we were a child, it was nothing to tell our parents that a sibling committed the dirty deed which we had done…this is a perfect example. Filth in our hearts in which we willfully poisoned another.

  • Falsely accusing someone of misbehavior and sin
  • Misrepresenting a disagreement between people
  • Falsely describing the actions of another person in a way that implies his guilt
  • Not offering evidence against someone when asked to give testimony
  • Covering for someone who has committed a wrongdoing



We see this one constantly, ESPECIALLY from our so-called Christian sector. Yes, especially Believers. It’s almost like a dual to the death as we strive to argue our point over a matter such as “The Trinity;”…”KJV vs. NIV; or whatever the case may be. You know that GOD has shed many a tear over this issue.

  • Teasing
  • Listening to gossip and repeating gossip
  • Slandering, repeating truths that will harm another person’s reputation
  • Leading others to imagine the worst about someone
  • Stirring up disagreements and jealousies
  • Arousing suspicions against someone
  • Meddling in the disagreements of others
  • Taking sides in disagreements
  • Envying the success and blessing of others



If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two –
If He came unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,
And all the food you’d serve to Him would be the very best,
And you would keep assuring Him you’re glad to have him there –
That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.


But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?
Or would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they’d been?
Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn’t heard?
And wish you hadn’t uttered that last, loud, hasty word?


Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?
And I wonder – if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things you always do?
Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?


Would your family conversation keep up it’s usual pace?
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?
Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you read,
And let Him know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you’d planned to go?
Or would you, maybe, change your plans for just a day or so?


Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?
Or would you hope they’d stay away until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the things that you would do
If Jesus Christ in person came to spend some time with you.


Let Jesus into your heart (house)!


At the age of 14, Mrs Lena Ofosu was brought by her mother to a witchdoctor in Ghana.

Little did she know that this witchdoctor was about to reveal to her mother that she had been chosen before birth to be the ‘wife’ of a demonic spirit from under the water and thus would have to undergo training to know how to perform ritual sacrifices to enable this ‘spiritual husband’ to meet and interact with her both in the spiritual and physical worlds.

The Underwater Kingdom of Satan

Revelation 13:1-2 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”

Demons who reside beneath the waters are called “Aquarius spirits” or “Marine spirits”. These Demons are contacted only through witchcraft as to receive supernatural powers.

Their Marine kingdom (WHICH IS SPIRITUAL) is established under the ocean and the Headquarters of Marine kingdom of Satan is said to be located beneath India’s Sea. The “Queen of India sea” is the head of Marine kingdom, while the “Queen of the Coast” is next in command and resides within the Atlantic Ocean. It is said that both are also among the fallen angels.

The Marine kingdom of Satan is a highly organized and strategized place where high technological equipments are used by high ranking Satanists who are psychiatrists and scientists, who work in labs tirelessly to design beautiful but seductive things. The things that are designed in that spirit world are said to be latest weapons, perfumes, assorted types of cosmetics, flashy cars, different designs of electronics, etc.

Many perfumes to lure men and women, underwear and sexy clothing to seduce and distract men are also made there. These things are used on earth to supply people who have signed a contract with Satan — sale and prosperity for a soul in return. These things are also given to most of the workers of the Occult for the sole purpose to distract people from Jesus Christ.


Connecting the dots…. [Doctrines Of Demons] And Satanic Utopia

The “New Age” of Aquarius is an Astrology doctrine of the 1980s, proclaiming the human race is at the verge of a “gigantic quantum leap”, to realize that every human is God… and when that happens, it will be the “New Age”, a glorious time with only one nation on earth, one language, one government, one religion, one monetary system… with only love on earth, the “golden age”!, without hate, violence, wars, crime, racism, and without sickness nor death!…

This “utopia” is the greatest menace to Christianity, more than any other cult… New age has been cataloged as the AIDS of all heresies. The Essential Belief: The old saying, “God is Dead”, is gone; the new theme is “everyone is God… Everyone!.

This is the essential belief: All is one, one is God, you are one… that’s right, you are God!…[Demonic!]

You are God!, even if you don’t know how to make birds, nor stars, nor the eyes of an insect, nor even a simple leave of a tree… But you are God!… you shape your own destiny, you are capable of overcoming all problems; it is the ultimate philosophy of the “Me Generation”… since the God in you makes all decisions, then whatever you decide is right!… there is not objective truth.

The New Age rage is intended to become a “new world order” in which all becomes one: No national boundaries, just one world community in government, religion, economy… all is yours!… and you belong to all!… the world is passing from an old age of materialism into a time of new spirituality…

Romans 10:3-4 (KJV) “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”

Satan’s kingdom is divided into three main strongholds. The stronghold of the heavens: the stronghold of the earth and the stronghold of the sea or waters.

Of these three the least understood by man, especially Christians, is the stronghold of the sea. Let us look at the first two briefly before we examine this largely unknown stronghold.


Stronghold of the Heavens
Satan dwells in what is called the second heavens. The bible talks about the Queen of heaven.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows. (Jeremiah 44:25)


They worship of the Host of Heaven:

And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; (Deuteronomy 17:3)

While also, Satan is referred to as the Prince of the air.

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: (Ephesians 2:2)


Stronghold of the Earth:
So many evil altars are spread all over the earth including Satanic temples. In the bible such spirits were referred to as earth ruling spirits. They are referred to as Baal which literally means Lord or master.

(There are various gods that went by this title. These include Baal-berith-worshipped at Shechem after the death of Gideon, Baal-gad- meaning Lord of good luck worshipped in Gad in Palestine and Baal-peor – worshipped by the Moabites to mention a few. There is also Baal-zebub the Lord of the flies worshipped in Ekron and referred to in the New Testament as Beelzebub.

Being a mere title of “Lord” or “Master” Baal was initially also used by the Israelites to refer to God. It was when the preponderance of its usage as a title for all of these false gods came to be that the Lord himself told the Israelites to no longer refer to him as Baal. This is later reflected in the book of Hosea:

And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali. For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. (Hosea 2:16-17)

This equally led to the suffix Baal being dropped by the Israelites in their names. Thus Jerubbaal became Jerubbesheth and Merib-baal became Mephibosheth to mention a few. )


Stronghold of the Sea
Unfortunately however a lot of Christians find it difficult to understand how the sea is a spiritual stronghold. The truth however is that the sea, water, rivers and their powers will always play a major role in a person life and your ability to exercise dominion over them will determine how far you go in the ministry.

You cannot be a very successful minister of God or spiritual warrior without understanding and exercising dominion over water powers.

You cannot ignore water powers; you must encounter them at one point in life.

The influence of water powers in the world today cannot be ignored. Many names that relate to the daily affairs of men are derived from the sea. Below are a few examples:

Nigeria -derived from river Niger.
Cameroun- literally means land of shrimps
Jamaica-means wood and water or marshy land
Cyprus, -name of a sea god.
Madrid- derived from the name of a major sea (now a dried river bed) in Spain.

There are certain spirits/ powers that dwell in the sea.


Let’s establish a few facts from the bible that emphasizes the importance of the need to master these powers:

If you cannot exercise dominion over the waters, you can not be set free from bondage.
The children of Israel had to pass through the Red Sea before they could experience deliverance from the land of Egypt. Thus they had to exercise dominion over the marine Kingdom.

If you cannot exercise dominion over the water powers you cannot walk into you breakthrough.
The children of Israel had to walk through the River Jordan before they enter the Promised Land.

And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying, (Joshua 4:1)

A more concealed case of having to overcome the marine Kingdom before entering into ones breakthrough is seen in the life of Joseph. Water spirits are responsible for sexual immorality. When Joseph was tempted by Potiphar’s wife he was actually being confronted by the Marine powers. If he had succumbed his ministry and calling would have drowned in the waters of life. But he was able to avoid the pitfall. He was able to walk through the waters.

Before you can attain your glory and anointing you have exercise dominion over the waters.

Elijah had to part the River Jordan to reach the point where the chariot of fire appeared to take him to heaven.
Elisha also had to cross the river Jordan with Elijah to get to the point where he could request for the double portion of anointing.

To exercise your anointing you have to exercise dominion over the waters.
When Elijah left, Elisha had to exercise powers over the waters by dividing and crossing river Jordan to go to where he would commence his ministry.

After overpowering the marine Kingdom to commence your ministry or wilderness experience you will still encounter the marine kingdom powers along the way.

After coming out of the Red sea the children of Israel still had to encounter the marine kingdom in the form of the waters of Marah :

And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
(Exodus 15:23-25)

Again, during the wilderness experience they had to see water gushing from the rock.

Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
(Exodus 17:6)

At the beginning of Jesus ministry the Lord stood the test of exercising power over the water powers by converting water into wine:

So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
(John 4:46)

As Elisha crossed the Jordan to begin his ministry the first challenge he faced was from the marine kingdom:

And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren. And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him. And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.
(2 Kings 2:19-21)

Water powers will challenge and seek to sink a person’s ministry. You need to exercise dominion over such powers to silence them.
The bible explains how such powers sought to sink the boat that Jesus was in:

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. (Mar 4:37)
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.(Mar 4:41) And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? (Mark 4:39)

It is obvious here that if Jesus did not know how to exercise dominion over the powers in the water his ministry would have came to an abrupt end. The storm, initiated by the sea, was designed to destroy the ship. The ship represents the vehicle of Jesus ministry. If the storm succeeded it would have destroyed both Jesus and all his disciples in the boat! So if you attend a ministry where they do not exercise dominion over water powers and you personally do not have such dominion when the storm of life attacks the ministry both the leader and the followers will be affected!


Waters powers hinder growth and steal a person’s source of livelihood

And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us.(2) Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.(3) And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go.4) So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.5) But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed.6) And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.7) Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it. (2Ki 6:1-7)

If you are successful financially and you marry or employ someone from the marine kingdom the spirits associated with such a person will ruin the business by introducing the spirit of the waster into your life.

At one point or the other in life every person must contact water spirits.
As said in the article on Deliverance from the Marine Kingdom, Spirit Husband and Spirit Wife” numerous problems in life originate from these marine kingdom spirits such as all forms of sexual immorality, ( lust fornication, perverseness etc) financial disaster etc)

In Revelations we are made to understand that certain powers dwell and will rise up from within the sea:

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.2) And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. .(Rev 13:3)

When you cannot exercise control over the powers in the water you will be afraid to step out of your boat (going beyond your comfort zone or area of influence.)

And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.49) But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out.50) For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. Mar 6:51) And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. (Mar 6:48-51)

This is why on many occasions when we read about the waters in the bible what is actually being referred to are the powers that reside within these waters:

In the book of Psalms King David makes a startling statement:

He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters. (Psalm 18:16)

Likewise elsewhere we read:

Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.15) Let not the water flood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me. (Psalm 69:14-15)

In such verses what is the Psalmist referring to? As stated earlier all the spirits responsible for sexual immorality are from the waters. (Please read message on Deliverance from the marine Kingdom: spirit husbands and spirit wives.) The bible makes it clear that King David had affairs with many women. By saying that the Lord drew him out of many waters he was not referring to being drowned by waters physically. He was referring to the numerous water related spirits that he had to deal with as a result of the women all around him.

It is the same light he spoke in Psalm 69 where he states that he should be delivered from out of the deep waters and that the Lord should not allow the water flood overflow him. In other words the Lord should save him from all forms of destruction via involvement with these water spirits in such women. Solomon unfortunately, could not say the same.


That there are numerous spirits within the waters is evident in the book of Mark. Here we are told how certain spirits rushed to dwell in the waters:

And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
(Mark 5:1-13)

From the above we can see that the wealth and industries of certain people are so tied to the sea that they do not want to be delivered. These people asked Jesus to depart from their coasts!


Aphrodisiac and Sea Food
There is certain food that is refereed to as Aphrodiasic. Aphrodite is the Greek god of Sex. (This spirit is otherwise known as eros) When people eat Aphrodisiac food this spirit enters there lives. Most food that comes from under the sea is Aphrodisiac.

There are spirits in the sea called Nymphs. These spirits accompany aphrodisiac food – These are thee same spirits that enter into the lives of people through all forms of sexual pervasiveness and make them have uncontrollable sexual desires. This is why such people are referred to as Nymphomaniacs.

May the anointing to deal with the marine kingdom fall upon your life in the name of Jesus!

Prayer Points

Oh lord, empower me to deal with water powers in the name of Jesus.
Powers under the sea, withholding my glory die and release me in the name of Jesus.
I slay every dragon under the sea withholding my glory
You spirit of the octopus in my life come out and die in the name of Jesus
Every power of the water holding me in bondage break and release me now in the name of Jesus.
My anointing being withheld by Marine powers I take you back now in the name of Jesus.



There is a great war being waged in the world today. It is not a conflict between nations, tribes, or government leaders. It is not a rebellion or coup. It is an important invisible battle taking place in the spirit world. Military terminology is used throughout the New Testament. The early Church knew they were engaged in an intense spiritual struggle. Protection was seen in the armor of God. The Word of God was compared to a sword. Satan’s attacks were called fiery darts. Faith was the “good fight” and believers were told to “war a good warfare”.

The same spiritual battle continues even today, but instead of fighting the enemy the present day believers are often building great church buildings, producing musical dramas, holding fellowship meetings, and fighting one another while this great spiritual battle wages around them. Satan has even intensified his attacks against a church that has withdrawn from the front lines of battle. The Bible states that God’s people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). One of the main areas in which believers are being defeated is due to lack of knowledge about the spiritual battle and in spiritual warfare.

As the end of time approaches it is even more important for believers to understand spiritual warfare than in the early days of church history. The Apostle Paul warned, …this know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come (II Tim 3:1). In order to be properly prepared for these perilous times, renewed emphasis must be placed on the strategies of spiritual warfare. The Christian life is war. The sooner we recognize and prepare for it, the sooner we will experience victory.

When a nation declares war, they often issue Articles of War. This document explains why they are at war, identifies the enemy, and declares the objectives of the war. The Bible is the written Word of the one true God, the Commander of our spiritual army. The exposing of the enemy and his strategies is one of the greatest revelations of God’s Word. Even greater is the revelation that as believers we have power over all the powers of the enemy. As in natural warfare, skill in spiritual warfare is progressive as we enter the combat zone and begin to fight.

The invisible spiritual war is a battle which involves all men and women. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph 6:12). It is not a visible war is because spirits are involved and we learn in Luke 24:39, that spirit does not have flesh and bones.

Every person alive is engaged in this battle, whether he realizes it or not. There is no neutral ground. Unbelievers are in bondage to evil and have been taken captive by enemy forces. Though believers have been freed from the enemy through Jesus Christ, they are still engaged in the war for two reasons. All believers wrestle against evil spiritual forces because of his relentless counterattacks as well as to free others from the bondage. “Wrestling” involves close personal contact. No one is exempt from this battle. No one can view it from a distance. The Christian warfare never ceases.

Spiritual warfare is “multidimensional,” which means it is fought in different dimensions. It is a social battle between the believer and the world (John 15:18-27). A personal battle between the flesh and the spirit (Gal 5:16-26). A supernatural battle between believers and evil spiritual powers (Eph 6:10-27). This invisible war is being waged on earth. Satan fights to maintain control of the kingdoms of the world. He does not want them to come under God’s authority. Satan blinds the spiritual eyes of the unbelievers and attacks believers in the areas of worship, the Word, their daily walk, and their work for God.

To understand this invisible war, we must first understand the natural and spiritual worlds. Man exists in two worlds, the natural world and the spiritual world. The natural world is that which can be seen, felt, touched, heard or tasted. It is tangible and visible. The country, nation, city, or village in which we live is part of the natural world. We are a resident in a natural kingdom located on one of the visible continents of the world. We can see the people who are part of our environment. We can communicate with them. We can experience the sights, sounds, and smells around us. But there is another world in which we live. That world is a spiritual world. We cannot see it with our physical eyes, but it is just as real as the natural world in which we live.

Paul speaks of this division of natural and spiritual world. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body (I Cor 15:40). All men have a natural body which lives in the natural world, but man is also a spiritual being with an eternal soul and spirit. Man is body, soul, and spirit. Our spiritual being (soul and spirit) is part of a spiritual world just as our natural body is part of the natural world.The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy (this spiritual body); I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10), both in this world as well as in Heaven.


In our natural, sinful state, we can not understand spiritual things. I Cor 2:14, But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of GOD, for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.It is necessary to use “spiritual discernment” to understand spiritual things. Perhaps one of the best examples of natural and spiritual discernment is recorded in II Kings chapter 6. It records the story of a natural battle in which troops of the enemy nation of Syria had surrounded a small town called Dothan where the prophet Elisha was staying. When Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, saw the great host of the enemy he became fearful. Elisha prayed that GOD would open Gehazi’s spiritual eyes so he could see the angelic hosts surrounding and protecting them. GOD opened the spiritual eyes of Gehazi and allowed him to see the superior forces of GOD aligned for battle.

The story of this battle at Dothan is similar to present spiritual conditions in the Church. There are some, like Elisha, who see clearly into the realm of the spirit. They know there is a conflict occurring, have identified the enemy, and recognize the greater forces of GOD that assure victory. There are others like Gehazi, who with a little encouragement, will be able to open their spiritual eyes and no longer be fearful of and defeated by the enemy. But sadly, there are many people who, like those in the city of Dothan, are spiritually sleeping. They do not even know that the enemy has surrounded them and is poised for attack.

Within the natural and spiritual realms of which we are speaking there exists separate kingdoms which are ruled by natural and spiritual leaders. All men live in a natural kingdom of this world. They live in a city or a village which is part of a nation. That nation is a kingdom of the world. A natural kingdom is a territory or people over which an actual king or political leader is the sovereign ruler. The Bible speaks of these natural kingdoms as “kingdoms of the world”. The kingdoms of the world have come under the power and influence of Satan. In Matt 4:8-9, the Devil taketh Jesus up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto Him, All these things will I give thee, if you wilt fall down and worship me. 1 John 5:19 also reminds us that “the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”

In addition to the natural kingdoms of this world there are two spiritual kingdoms. The Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of GOD. Every person alive is a resident of one of these two kingdoms. The Kingdom of Satan consists of Satan, spiritual beings called demons, and all men who live in sin and rebellion to GOD’s Word. These, plus the world and the flesh, are the spiritual forces of evil at work in the world today. The Kingdom of GOD consists of GOD the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, spiritual beings called angels, and all men who live in righteous obedience to GOD’s Word. These are the spiritual forces of good.

The Kingdom of GOD is not a denominational church. Denominations are man-made organizations of groups of churches. Denominations are major church organizations like Baptist, Assembly of God, Methodist, Lutheran, etc. The Bible speaks of the true Church which is not a denomination or religious organization. The true Church is composed of all those who have become residents of the Kingdom of GOD.

At the present time in the natural world, the Kingdom of GOD exists individually within every man, woman, boy or girl who has made Jesus King of their lives. It exists communally in the true church and wherever people make this world the kind of world GOD wants it to be. In the future, there will be an actual visible manifestation of GOD’s Kingdom.


The invisible war started in Heaven with an angel named Lucifer who was originally a beautiful angel created by GOD and was part of the Kingdom of GOD wanted to take over GOD’s Kingdom. We can read about his rebellion in Isaiah 14:12-17 and Ezekiel 28:12-19. A group of angels joined Lucifer (now called Satan) in this rebellion. And there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Satan); and the dragon fought and his angels (Rev 12:7).And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him (Rev 12:9).Lucifer became known as Satan and the angels who followed him in rebellion as demons. They formed their own kingdom on earth.

Man was originally created in the image of GOD and for the glory of GOD (Genesis chapter 2). When they were originally created by GOD, they were given dominion over the earth. This meant they had control over the earth, to guide its systems and inhabitants according to the plan of GOD.

The invisible war against man started with the first temptation in the Garden of Eden (Genesis chapter 3). Satan caused Adam and Eve to sin. When they sinned against GOD, they lost that dominion (Gen l-3). This also resulted in all men inheriting the basic sin nature and committing individual acts of sin due to this nature. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Rom 5:12).

Gen 3:15, And I will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman (mankind), and between thy seed (the forces of evil) and her seed (the forces of good represented by the Lord Jesus Christ).It resulted in the invisible war between man and the forces of evil. Demon spirits can enter, torment, control, and use the people as his agents who do not obey GOD’s Word. They motivate evil acts which are done by men and women. Satan directs his demons in their evil activities. He combines these powerful forces with the world and the flesh to rule over all mankind.

Because of sin, man was separated from GOD and condemned to spiritual death. But GOD loved man so much and to fulfill His promise made in Gen 3:15, He made a special plan to save mankind from destruction because of sin. John 3:16-17, For GOD so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And GOD sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. For this purpose the Son of GOD was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil (I John 3:8).

Jesus Christ came in the flesh suffered, died and rose again for the very purpose of establishing His own spiritual Kingdom (John 18:36). Satan’s plans of wickedness, and all his dominion and power, and particularly his power over spiritual death; and especially the inability of men to overcome the sinful nature i.e. the bondage to sin, which are the works of the devil, which he puts them upon, influences them to do, and takes delight in; are destroyed by Christ, by his sacrifice and death, being taken, carried, removed away, finished, and made an end of by him.

Though Jesus Christ defeated Satan in the spiritual realm, we are still living in this literal world which is still occupied and controlled by Satan and his forces. Satan is trying to keep all men and women captive in sin through deceptive methods. He is enticing men and women through the temporary pleasures of this world. He wants the possession and control of all the souls at all cost. Satan still wants to be the supreme ruler over all the people both spiritually and literally. For this purpose he is waging an intense battle. His strategies are directed at GOD, His plan, and His people. This battle will continue until the great final conflict which is the battle of Armageddon. Understanding spiritual warfare strategies gives us the ability to deal with these evil powers and his control over the souls of people and the devil himself.


Spiritual warfare is the analysis of and active participation in the invisible spiritual war. It includes study of the opposing forces of good and evil, the strategies of Satan, and spiritual strategies for overcoming the enemy. Spiritual warfare is more than a mere analysis of spiritual principles. It includes active participation in warfare by application of these strategies in life and ministry.

One of the most effective strategies of Satan is to keep believers ignorant of his devices. Paul said it is important to know Satan’s strategies. Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (II Cor 2:11). We should learn all we can about Satan’s strategies of attack. We must also understand the Scriptural basis of victory over Satan and the forces of evil. We are called to intelligent combat. Basic to the understanding of spiritual warfare is to recognize that all battles of life, whether physical, spiritual or with human personalities are only outward manifestations of a spiritual cause.

Although in the natural world problems may seem to occur through the circumstances of life, the basis of these natural battles is in the spirit world. The story of Job (Job chapters’ l-2) confirms this principle. We have tried to correct the evils of this world through education, legislation, and improved environment. It has not worked because the visible evils of the world are the results of an underlying spiritual cause. They cannot be corrected by natural means.

In warfare in the natural world, a soldier must first identify the enemy before entering the battlefield. He must study all available information on the enemy, his nature, and strategies. This is why military forces spend much time gathering intelligence information on the enemy. The same is true in the spirit world. We can only war effectively if we identify our enemy, understand his nature, and recognizing his strategies. The evil forces we face are not clothed in flesh. They are spiritual hosts of wickedness.I Peter 5:8, Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. His words serve as a further introduction to his strategies (Gen 3:1,4,5; Job 1:7-12; Job 2:1-6; Matt 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13. 2). Satan is an exact opposite of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was sent by GOD to draw men to Himself. Satan is committed to draw men away from GOD.

Satan not only opposes GOD and His nature, but he also opposes GOD’s program. He denies the existence of GOD (Psalms 14:1-3), promotes lies (Eph 2:2; II Thess 2:8-ll); and is behind false religions, the occult, and cults with their false doctrines and practices. Satan’s religious system results in false teachers, prophets, and “christs”. Despite these evil strategies, Satan and his hosts of demonic powers are no threat to our Almighty GOD.

As we have seen, Satan is a spirit, but he also has attributes of a real personality. The Bible teaches that he is Intelligent and subtle. II Cor 11:3, But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtility, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. Emotional: And the dragon was wroth with the woman… (Rev 12:17). Self-willed: And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will (II Tim 2:26). Powerful: …Prince of the power of the air… (Eph 2:2). Deceitful: Put on the whole armour of GOD, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Eph 6:11). Fierce and cruel: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (I Peter 5:8). Deceptive: And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light (II Cor 11:14).

Unlike GOD, Satan is not omniscient (knowing all things). If Satan could foresee the future he never would have allowed Jesus to die on the cross. He would have known that the death of Jesus would overthrow his power and provide a way of escape from the bondage of sin for all mankind. Satan is not omnipotent (all powerful). Jesus said the power of GOD within you is greater than the power of Satan. For those who believe in Jesus, Satan is already a defeated foe (John 12:31). He is strong only to those who yield to him. His power is limited by the power of GOD (Job 1:10-12) and he is only able to overcome a believer as they yield control to him. Because Satan is not omnipresent (present everywhere) he dispatches a host of demons throughout the earth to do his will and accomplish his purposes.


Satan is compared to a serpent in the natural world. The venom of poisonous snakes falls into three categories. Neurotorins: Which affect the nerves. Cardiotorins: Which affect the heart. Hemotorins: Which affect the blood. Spiritually Satan also affects our nerve (spiritual courage), our heart (to attack our worship and service of GOD), and tries to prevent the work of the blood of Jesus (salvation, healing, deliverance) in our life.

Snakes protect themselves by disguise. Some snakes are very hard to see because they are camouflaged blend into the surrounding so well. Some snakes protect themselves by imitation. One example is the African tree viper which “freezes” itself and sticks its neck out like a twig on a tree. The puff adder protects itself by blowing itself up as big as possible. Some snakes hiss or rattle, making frightening sounds to scare us away. Our spiritual enemy comes disguised as an “angel of light” and imitates the things of GOD. He also tries to frighten us by appearing large and threatening.

Snakes capture their prey in four different ways. Strike: A swift attack. Constriction: Where the snake wraps itself around the target and slowly squeezes out its life. Throwing weight around over the prey to overcome it. Biting and holding the target in its fangs while slow poison paralyzes the target. Sometimes the snake’s teeth are broken off in the struggle, but snakes are constantly developing new teeth. Similarly the Devil either strikes or constricts our spiritual life with the cares of the world and sinful weights and entanglements. He is always trying to terrorize us, and he loves to hold us in bondage while paralyzing us with his deadly venom.

Here are some ways to avoid snake bite in the natural world. They are also applicable in the spiritual realm. Recognizing poisonous snakes (knowing our enemy). Wearing protective clothing (our spiritual armor). Avoiding known snake territory (areas of known temptation or satanic activity). Avoid walking after dark or in darkened areas (snakes avoid direct sunlight) as believers, we no longer walk as children of the dark but as children of light.

Snakes locate their prey by picking up the scent from the dust thrown up on their tongue which relays information to their brain. If we stand still, a snake cannot locate us. Satan spots us best when the dust is stirred up and we are running in confusion and fear. When the dust is settled and we stand against him fearlessly, he cannot strike us. This is why the Bible says “stand still.”…and “keep on standing.” In a panic situation, a snake will shoot all of its venom at once and is then rendered defenseless for awhile until it can produce more venom. It is possible that this is what occurred in the wilderness temptation when Jesus used the Word of GOD against Satan’s attacks and caused Satan to “depart from him for a season.”


It is also essential to know about the “troops,” known as demons, which are under Satan’s command. Some people ignore the subject of demons completely. Others have a compulsive interest in them. We should not minimize the power of demon spirits in the world today. When Jesus confronted two men possessed by demons, their response was, what have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of GOD? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matt 8:29).The demons in the possessed men knew their final destiny was a place of eternal torment. Since Hell is a place of torment and was prepared for Satan and his angels, then demons must be the fallen angels.

Throughout the Bible, demons are shown as active on earth. Since Satan is not omnipresent, he uses demons to do his will and accomplish his purposes throughout the world. They constitute the “powers of the air” (Eph 2:2) and the “powers of darkness” (Col 1:13) and are all under the control of Satan.

In their original sinless condition, demons had the same attributes as the good angels. In their present evil state these demons are spirits (Matt 8:16; Luke 10:17, 20). Can appear visibly (Gen 3:1; Zech 3:1; Matt 4:9-10). Can speak (Mark 5:9, 12; Luke 8:28; Matt 8:31). Believe that there is one God (James 2:19). Exercise their wills (Luke 11:24; 8:32). Demonstrate intelligence (Mark 1:24). Have emotions (Luke 8:28; James 2:19). Have recognition (Acts 19:15). Have supernatural strength (Acts 19:16; Mark 5:3). Have supernatural presence (Daniel 9:21-23). Are eternal (Matt 25:41). Have their own doctrine (I Tim 4:1-3). Are evil (Matt 10:1; Mark 1:27; 3:11). Demons are called evil spirits six times and unclean spirits 23 times in the New Testament. They are also called devils (Mark 1:32) and the devil’s angels (Matt 25:41).


Satan is an imitator, not an originator. He has organized his demons in a structure similar to that of God’s forces. Satan has apparently divided the world into principalities. A principality is the territory or jurisdiction of a prince. Satan has placed a prince over each principality. The prince of the power of Persia is mentioned in Daniel 10. This is how Satan works on a national level influencing governments and nations. These demons are at work in the social, political, and cultural systems of the world.

Satan is the author of spiritual wickedness in high places. High places in the Old Testament were where worship was carried on. This is how Satan works in the religious structures of the world. These organized groups vary in size. For example, Mary Magdalene had seven demons in her prior to her deliverance. Luke 8:30 mentions a “legion” of demons. A legion in the Roman army which ruled at the time of Jesus referred to 6,100 foot soldiers and 726 horsemen! These organized forces of demons were united in their purpose, which in this example was possession of the man and woman.

Have Different Degrees Of Wickedness. This is illustrated by the demon who said he would return with other evil spirits. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself and they enter in and dwell there: And the last state of that man is worse than the first… (Matt 12:43-45).

Demons follow orders given by their prince. We can summarize the activities of demons by noting that they are always directed against GOD, His plan, and His people. Demons are used by Satan to attack the Word of GOD, our worship of GOD, our walk with GOD, and our work for GOD. Satan uses his demons to accomplish this strategy throughout the world. Demons extend Satan’s power by promoting deception and wickedness. They affect individuals, governments, nations, and the world system. They promote rebellion and slander against both GOD and men. They promote idolatry, false doctrines, and blind men and women to the truth of the Gospel.

Demons can Change Their Functions. The demon in I Kings 22:21-23 declared he would be a lying spirit. This indicates he was not one previously for he said “I will be…”. There are different kinds of demons that attack the body and soul of man. They are responsible for immoral acts, unclean thoughts, oppression, possession and depression (Matt 10:1; 12:43; Mark 1:23-26). Spirits of infirmity afflict the physical body (Luke 13:11). Seducing spirits influences a person to believe false doctrines as indicated in I Timothy 4:1. They are spirits of cults, false Christ, and false teachers.

These demons instigates unbelievers driving them to commit terrible acts of evil, to murder, injure, commit suicide, speak lies etc. They affect the soul with emotional problems and the body with physical infirmities. Demons attack believers by temptation, deception, depression, and oppression. They try to keep us in bondage to habits and fear. They accuse and slander us and create division among the people of GOD.

Since spiritual warfare has many dimensions, we must war personally against sin, socially against evil in the world, and supernaturally through the deliverance ministry. The Bible is a spiritual warfare manual. It is the historical record of spiritual warfare, revealing the victories and defeats of past battles. It is prophetical, showing the course of our warfare until the time of the final conflict. In the natural world, when a soldier joins an army, he must deny any previous allegiance he has had to another army or country. When we join the army of GOD, we must repent of our allegiance to sin and the kingdom of Satan.

Spiritual warfare in the context of God’s total purpose for the redemption of sinful mankind is like the parables of the sower and the tares among wheat in Matthew 13. Both parables concern the growth of the Kingdom of GOD which occurs through the planting of GOD’s Word. Both parables picture the warfare between the two kingdoms with the battle centering on the redemptive purposes of GOD.

The simple definition of war in the natural world is “an act of force intended to compel our opponent to fulfill our will”. This definition is applicable also in the spiritual world. Learning spiritual warfare prepares us to enter the arena of this world and fight for the souls of men and women, boys and girls. This is why authority over Satan was given to the disciples before they were sent out to share the Gospel (Matt 28:18-20). Satan and his hosts of demons will war against us as we seek to win men to Christ and bring them under the rule of GOD. Employing Scriptural strategies of spiritual warfare helps us to challenge the principalities and powers who rule over individual human lives, societies, and areas of the world.

We are not to be affected by the world, but we are to affect the world. The believer should be a light in a world of darkness, reflecting the glory of GOD and sharing the good news of the Gospel: Ye are the light of the world… (Matt 5:14).The impact of the early believers on the world was so great that it was said of them that they “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). As soldiers in an army sent on a mission in a foreign nation, believers are on a special mission of GOD in the world. They have been instructed: …Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).

Satan is called the “god of this world” which includes men who are not believers and demonic angels (II Cor 4:4). He offered the nations to Jesus during the temptation of Christ, and our Lord did not dispute the legitimacy of the offer. He simply refused to rebel against GOD in submitting to Satan’s way of obtaining the rule (Matt 4:8-10). Satan uses his demons to influence and deceive the nations, leading the leaders and people astray from GOD. This is why there are cruel dictators and ungodly corrupt political systems in many nations. It also accounts for the wars and divisions between the nations. Satan especially influences leaders to hinder the spread of the Gospel.




The word “world” has different meanings in Scripture. It can mean the earth or universe in its physical order. It is used to refer to Gentiles which are all nations other than the Jewish nation. But the word “world” also is used to refer to the present condition of human affairs in opposition to GOD. It is the system that runs the inhabited earth, a system that is opposed to GOD and the Lord Jesus Christ.

The “world” is the corporate group of flesh-centered individuals who make up the human race. Flesh, in this context, is not referring to the actual flesh of our body. It is a term which describes the basic evil human nature of man which is in willful rebellion against GOD. As our enemy, the world is the whole organized system of social, economic, materialistic, and religious philosophies which have their expression through organizations, personalities, and governments. It is not a specific government, organization, or person, but the worldly system upon which these are based. It provides an atmosphere, environment, and system which promotes fleshly sins. It surrounds man with that which appeals to his fleshly desires.
Satan is the “prince” or ruler of the world system (John 12:31; 14:30). Satan is also called the god of this world. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believed not… (II Cor 4:4).The kingdoms of the world are presently influenced by Satan. They are guided by Satanic philosophy and principles. They are flesh-centered and flesh-governed.


The world structure is in direct opposition to GOD, His plan, purposes, and people: Who gave Himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of GOD and our Father (Gal 1:4).The world system is without GOD: …having no hope, and without GOD in the world (Eph 2:12).There is much deception in the world to ensnare believers to become part of the world system. For many deceivers are entered into the world (II John 7).


The “elements of the world” refer to the elementary principles that govern the world. They lead to spiritual bondage: Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world (Gal 4:3). The Rudiments of The World are the regulations on which the world structure rests. They are different from the principles upon which GOD structures His Kingdom. Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances (Col 2:8,20).

The Philosophies of the World are principles of knowledge. Worldly philosophies are not based on Christ. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ (Col 2:8).Worldly wisdom is not GOD’s wisdom. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with GOD (I Cor 3:19). The Course of The World is the way in which it operates. Wherefore in times past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience (Eph 2:2).

The many “voices” in the world are contrary to the voice of God: There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification (I Cor 14:10).The peace of the world is temporary, fragile, and sometimes deceptive:Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27) Godly sorrow differs from that of the world. Forgodly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repentedof:but the sorrow of the world worketh death (II Cor 7:10).

The world hates GOD. …Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with GOD? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of GOD (James 4:4).The world hates believers. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you (John 15:18-19).

Recognizing that we are not of the world: John 17:14-16, I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).

Realizing that gaining the world is not worth losing our soul:For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul (Mark 8:36). For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? (Luke 9:25).

Realizing that if we love the world, we are an enemy of GOD: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world (I John 2:15-16). Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with GOD? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of GOD (James 4:4).

Recognizing the temporal nature of the world: And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof. But he that doeth the will of GOD abideth forever (I John 2:17). For the fashion of this world passeth away (I Cor 7:31). Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness (II Peter 3:11).

We can overcome the world because Jesus dwells within us: Ye are of GOD, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than He that is in the world (I John 4:4). Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (II Peter 1:4). For whatsoever is born of GOD overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith (I John 5:4). And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony… (Rev 12:11).




There are certain things we must do to allow GOD accomplish HIS purposes in our lives, families and nation:


There is a scripture we often quote in praying for our nations, but it is not only for healing of nations. It applies equally to our individual lives and families.

if My people who are called by My Name

will humble themselves and pray and

seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,

then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and

heal their land”(2 Chr. 7:14, emphasis mine).

If we see a manifestation of any of these symptoms, we should humble ourselves and ask for anointed servants of GOD to pray for us a prayer of deliverance. Thousands have been delivered from the yoke of oppression of water spirits.



They themselves need to be very prayerful even though the spirits hinder the prayer life of her captives.

But the scriptures say:

Shall the prey be taken from the mighty or

the captives of the righteous be delivered? But thus says the Lord:

Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,

and the prey of the terrible be delivered for

I will contend with him who contends

with you and I will save your children’” (Is. 49:24-25).



Ask GOD questions, and HE will give you answers.

I sought the Lord and He heard me

And delivered me from all my fears

They looked to Him and were radiant

And their faces were not ashamed” (Ps. 34:4-5).

A brother was fed up of a life of continuous struggle with nothing to show for his struggles and efforts in life. As he did seven days of praying and fasting, the Lord ministered to him to ask his father questions.

This was the beginning of the deliverance of this brother from Satan’s oppression. (See also, Hos. 4:6; Is. 5:13-14).



There is nothing God can do long as you do not repent of your sins of idolatry.

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save

nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear,

but your iniquities have separated you from your God

and your sins have hidden His face from you

so that He will not hear” (Is. 59:1-2).

Once there is repentance, admitting and turning away from the sin of idolatry, GOD begins to move to deliver HIS children or the nation.



The power and fire to carry out deliverance of people and places with marine spirits manifestations can be obtained only from GOD but the good news is that it is yours for the asking.

Meditate on the following scriptures: Matt. 3:11; Acts 10:38; Lk. 24:49; Ps. 110:1-3; Ps. 144:1, Ps. 85:6, Deut 2:24-25.

In Deut. 2:24, GOD told the Israelites to go across the River Arnon. He said He has given the king and his land to Israel, but that Israel should begin to possess the land and engage him in battle.

To possess America, Africa and our nations for the Lord, there are spiritual battles to be fought against water spirits, witchcraft, queen of heaven and numerous other satanic forces of darkness, because unwittingly men have given these lands to these forces through idolatrous practices.

The assurance we have is that as we go into these battles, we are not going in our strength and therefore, we have the victory. Meditate on these scriptures: Rev. 12:11; Col. 2:15; Eph. 6:11-18; Col. 2:13; I Cor. 15:58; Lk. 10:18-19; Ps. 8:6-8; Ps. 91:13; Ps. 51:20-23; Ezek. 22:30-31.

Let us be as Caleb who said, “Let us go up at once and take possession for we are well able to overcome it.” GOD was well pleased with Joshua and Caleb and because they trusted in Him, they lived and prospered. For those who were fearful, they perished in the wilderness.


Debo Daniel




In this chapter, we wish to examine what happens when people turn their back on the true God and worship other gods:

1. It provokes God’s anger.

Worship of water spirits or any other god gets God very angry and provokes Him to release judgment on the people and on the land.

In Exodus 20:4-5, God forbids the worship of anything in the waters. He says those who worship them hate Him (see Judges 2:12; Deut. 31:16-17; Jer. 7:17-20; Num. 25:1-3).

2. It brings a curse.

The Psalmist said, “Their sorrow shall be multiplied who hasten after another god” (Ps. 16:4), and “Let all be put to shame who serve carved images….” (Ps. 97:7). God says they are cursed.

Cursed is the one who makes a carved or molded image, an abomination to the Lord,

the works of the hands of craftsmen and sets it up in secret” (Deut. 27:15).


3. Idolatry attracts war and bloodshed.

Check out the nations of Africa, the wars and bloodshed can be traced to Idolatry and more recently, because of America’s involvement in so much of occultism; she has one war or another with other nations (Jer. 7:31-34; Ezek. 6:13-14).

4. It delivers the people to captivity and oppression.

God allows oppression in the land and gives the people over to their enemies.

They forsook the Lord and served Baal and the Ashtoreths and the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, so He delivered them into the hand of plunderers who despoiled them and He sold them unto the hands of their enemies all around, that they could not stand before their enemies (Judges 2:13-14).

The Babylonian captivity was all due to the sin of idolatry. In the western world today, even through one can see beautiful houses, cars, roads and other beautiful infrastructure, it is so sad and disheartening the level of oppression of the people.


5. God oppresses the people.

God himself resists and stands against those who are involved in idolatry; He frustrates them.

Whenever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for calamity

as the Lord had said and as the Lord had sworn to them.

And they were greatly distressed” (Judges 2:15).

6. Idolatry defiles and pollutes the land and the people.

God laments that idolatry defiles this land and that He will “Fish out” and “hunt” for idolaters to punish them (Jer. 16:16-18).

7. It brings a covering of darkness over the land and the people.

And He will destroy on this mountain the surface of the covering

cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations” (Is. 25:7).


8. It affects not only the person that commits the sin but many generations. This is expressly stated in Exodus 20:1-6, but an example can be seen in the life of Jeroboam who brought idolatry into Israel and the next 16 kings, no matter how they tried to worship the true God, fell into the sin of idolatry, ultimately including Jehu who had killed Jezebel and others for their idolatry (2 Kings 10:28-31).

9. It transfers the land and its resources therein to the control of spirits.

The price we pay for idolatry is too much and that is why God wants us to flee idolatry. Worship of water spirits is idolatry and we must not only flee from it, we must war against it in our families, cities and nations.

Chapter 6


From the foregoing chapters, it is evident that the water-spirit kingdom is a very important arm of the kingdom of darkness of Satan and is an enemy kingdom.

In summary, they:

1. Contend with God’s sovereignty by laying claim to creation, dominion, power and wealth (Ezek 29:3, Ezek. 32:1-2)

2. Steal kill and destroy (Jn. 10:10) through various sins

3. Deceive (Rev. 12:13)

4. Make war with saints (Rev. 12:15, 17; Rev. 13:17, etc.)

5. Hinder the gospel by using “false prophets” to do evil and many undiscerning people visit these false prophets

6. Rule whole cities, nations or communities by manifesting through political leaders, witchcraft, sorcery and all manners of wickedness


In the scriptures, God rebuked complacency in the women of Zion. The truth however is that God detests complacency not only in the women, but in His Body in Zion, the Church.

Rise up, you women who are at ease,

Hear my voice;

You complacent daughters,

Give ear to my speech.

In a year and some days

You will be troubled, you

complacent women;

For the vintage will fail,

The gathering will not come.

Tremble, you women who are at ease;

Be troubled, you complacent ones;

Strip yourselves, make yourselves bare,

And gird sackcloth on your waists.

People shall mourn upon their breasts

For the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

On the land of my people will come up thorns and briers,

Yes, on all the happy homes in the joyous city;

Because the palaces will be forsaken,

The bustling city will be deserted.

The forts and towers will become lairs forever,

A joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks –

Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high,

And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,

And the fruitful field is counted as a forest” (Is 32:9-15).

From this scripture, we can see that our complacency in controlling our natural environment through intercession leads to many disasters:

  • Pleasant fields turn to thorns and briers
  • Harvests fail
  • Prosperous and bursting cities become deserted
  • Desolation (i.e., sin, satanic oppression, occultic influences) takes over cities and even the Church!

All these begin to manifest until the Spirit is poured down from on high and manifests through informed intercession and spiritual warfare, by God’s people and then:

  • The wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and
  • The fruitful field enlarges to become like forest

A father in intercession and spiritual warfare, Kjell Sjoberg, put this idea very well into his book, Winning the Prayer War.

God’s people, and those who pray, have the keys of a place. If they become slack in intercession, they are like a farmer ceasing to plow and cultivate his field. The evil spirits like weeds are free to grow again and to regain the upper hand. But if God’s people maintain their position of victory and take the responsibility for intercession in their area, then they become channels for God’s fullness, so that all can testify, “Here, the Lord truly lives among His people.”

If we desire to take our cities and nations for God and check the advance of wickedness and abominations around us, so that the kingdoms of this world might become the kingdoms of our God and of His Christ, the church of God needs to become more sensitive and available for God’s need for a warrior company of people.

It is only as we yield ourselves to the prophetic and apostolic move of God in these last days that we can conquer our lands for our God.



By yielding ourselves to be among the warrior company, God will use in these last days; we will be:

1. Breaking bonds of wickedness in our territories and cities (Is. 58:6)

2. Setting captives free (Is. 49:24-26)

3. Enforcing the manifestation of God’s will and purposes (Eph. 3:10; Rom. 8:19)

4. Standing in our priestly office (1 Pet. 2:9)

5. Repairing and rebinding desolations of many generation and ruined cities (Is. 61: 4)

6. Causing God’s kingdom to come on earth and His will to be done (Lk. 11:2)

7. Causing the veil of darkness over cities and nations to be lifted and destroyed (Is. 25:7)

8. Recovering lands the enemy has taken through the ignorance of people and their involvement in idolatry (Deut. 2:24-25)

9. Breaking the power of curses and ancient covenants over the lands and the people (2 Kings 2:19-21)



The following are ways to wage war against water spirits.

1. Spiritual mapping:

Spiritual mapping can be defined as the discerning of the actual spiritual state of a place or entity through seeing beyond what the place or entity appears to be.

The enemy, Satan, is still the same, but as the warfare against his kingdom heats up, he is also operating in more subtle ways developing inroads and strongholds clandestinely in homes, offices, educational institutions, recreational systems, arts and culture, etc. This is apart from places in our environment where his presence is more obvious.

To do effective warfare against the powers of darkness now, it is important to identify the princes, powers and demons by name, identify their locations, discover the history of their presence in particular locations, identify “happenings” in our environment traceable to particular principalities and powers, etc.

Every purpose is established by counsel; by wise counsel wage war” (Prov. 20:18).

…but through knowledge the righteous shall be delivered” (Prov. 11:9b).

The Bible encourages us to be cautious:

…lest Satan should take advantage of us;

for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor. 2:11).


Spiritual mapping exposes the enemy preventing him from taking advantage over us. The knowledge we gain from spiritual mapping helps us to do effective warfare so that we will not be like men who “beat the air” (1 Cor. 9:26b).

Spiritual mapping information concerning our lives, families, establishments, territories, cities, nations, etc., can be acquired by:

  • Observation of our natural environment with the gift of discernment of Spirit
  • Conducting interviews and asking informed questions about the environment; elders in the environment can be particularly useful (Job 12:12)
  • Examining books, and other print and media materials
  • Listening to God in prayers and fasting (Ps. 25:14; Prov. 25:2) as you ask the Holy Spirit for information and relevant warfare strategies

2. Personal deliverance from water spirit manifestations:

  • Bring repentance for every initiation and dedication, sacrifices made and covenants entered into, vows and marriages contracted with water spirits, worship given to them, etc. (Is. 59:1,2; 2 Chr. 7:14; Prov. 28:13).
  • Make atonement through the blood of Jesus, the blood of the new covenant (Heb. 9:22; Heb. 12:24).
  • Renounce these connections, covenants, dedications divorce all spiritual marriage through initiation and/or dreams.
  • Break all tokens of satanic covenants you made with the water spirits.
  • Allow the spirit to be cast out.
  • Carry out spiritual warfare against all points of contact and tokens in the sun, moon and stars because the tides are controlled by the moon (Ps. 21:6-8).


A. The sword of the Lord (Is. 27:1)

B. The hook of the Lord (Ezek. 29:3-5)

C. The mighty arm of the Lord (Ps. 89:10, 13; Job 26:136)

D. The power of God’s presence (1 Sam. 5:2-4)

E. The blood of Jesus (Rev. 12:11)

F. The weapon of praise (2 Chr. 20)

G. Prophetic declaration into the water (2 Kings 2:19-21)

3. Community Deliverance from Water Spirit Manifestation:

  • Corporate fasting and praying to receive divine strategies and scriptures from the Lord (Josh. 5:13, Josh. 6:5)
  • Bring corporate identificational repentance for the worship, priesthood, vows and covenants made with the water spirits, etc. (Neh. 1:4 -11; Dan. 9:3-19, Ezra 9:1-15).
  • Carry out spiritual warfare with scriptures the Lord lays in your heart while waiting on Him.
  • Usually, the Lord lays it in the heart of His warriors to do some prophetic praying and take some prophetic actions.

4. Some prophetic actions the Lord had directed in some previous warfare against water spirits include:

  • Anointing the waters with anointing oil over which we had prayed
  • The brethren take communion and pour out the remaining wine of the communion into the waters, symbolic of the blood of Jesus.
  • Relevant scriptures are written in small pieces of paper and thrown into the waters with prophetic declarations
  • Some brethren have been led to drop the whole Bible or New Testament Bible alone into some waters with specific proclamations over the waters.
  • Scriptures are given in some instances to be declared and proclaimed over the waters.



There is a river in the city of Ibadan, southwest Nigeria called Ogunpa, which for several years overflows its banks and causes death and wanton destruction of property. In 2001, the Lord led us to begin to pray against the forces operating through the river.

As we prayed, the Lord gave us several strategies including:

  • Getting some brethren to prayer-walk some portions of the banks of the river
  • Prophetically changing its name from Ogunpa, a god that kills, to Idunu, a thing of joy
  • Corporate warfare
  • Prophetic action of dropping scriptures written on pieces of paper into the river, anointing the river by pouring oil into it, pouring salt into it and taking communion by the river throwing the remaining communion things into the river
  • Praising and worshiping God thereafter by the river

Since that time, there has been no overflowing of the river and the government has designated a large amount of money for the channeling of the river.
