For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:4-6
When it comes to making use of the weapons of our warfare, we all need to be interested in the most excellent way. Maintaining the victory our Lord chalked for us on the cross should be our daily desire – because it is the Father’s joy that we maintain what He made available to us.
The opening scripture gives us an idea of one of the weapons needed to enforce our victory in Christ and that is, knowledge. Check verse 5 of 2 Corinthians 10: casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Satan’s main goal is to attack your knowledge of what Jesus has made available to you. Possessing accurate knowledge of your redemption rights positions you to put the devil in his place until the second coming of the Lord. The enemy is worried that you know about your freedom in Christ. He would prefer you have no idea about your new life, health, prosperity, etc.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. Hosea 4:6
We often quote Hosea 4:6, especially the first line – “For lack of knowledge my people perish..“. This is so true in the sense that, as soon as one comes to the point of not knowing what is available in Christ, Satan presents anything as the truth. His goal is to take you out of your knowledge zone. The devil is so afraid of what you could possibly know in Christ. No wonder Jesus cautioned us to be careful of what we hear:
If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 24 Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. 25 For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.” Mark 4:23-25
What We Know Determines The Strategy And Weapons Of Our Warfare
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:7-8
Just have a second look at the verse above. If Satan had knowledge of God’s divine plan for the world, he wouldn’t have crucified Jesus. Wow! This means that, God’s stratetegy could’ve been altered had the eneny known what the Lord was doing. Do you have an idea of how many believers who could’ve extended thier stay on the earth had they known about their authority to reject death?
Unfortnately, some believers accept that sicknesses and diseases are normal. Some even believe it is God’s will when they fall sick becasue according to them, the Father would’ve prevented it if He didn’t sanction it. What an abomination to think that way! What you know determines how you live in this world. Desire to have full, thorough, and comprehensive knowledge of what the Father has made available to you in Christ. This will empower you to enjoy His life the way He desires it to be. Stay blessed always
