Beloved, the issue of ‘The Strongman’ is an important one that cannot be glossed over by the eagle believers. The strongman in this context is satan’s commander-in-chief, positioned in a place or location (Dan. 10 v 20) to carry out his master’s mandate, which is to steal, kill and destroy according to (John 10 v 10) “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”.
THE STRONGMAN; WHO IS HE?
• The Strongman is the chief demon in charge of other demons, and is often more wicked than satan himself, because he is all out and aims only at pleasing his master.
• The strongman is the power standing between you and your promised land or divine destiny.
In Abraham’s house, the strongman that stood against him was barrenness and lying.
• Some strongmen live inside of people like in the case of Goliath.
• They can also live inside the body of a member of a household. (Mathew 10 v 36)
• There are also strongmen of different issues and challenges.
A strongman is an adversary with the characteristic of intense hate at any human, or anything that is godly. (Micah 7 v 3 – 6)
WHY DEAL WITH THE STRONGMAN?
1. He blocks and locks up your prayers – Daniel 10 v 2, 12, 13, Luke 18 v 1.
• He steals open doors, blessings and holds them in satanic strong rooms – Matthew 12 v 29.
• These satanic strong rooms are located on the land, underneath the earth, in the air and in the waters.
• They hold people’s breakthroughs, relationships, family, finances, peace, prosperity etc.
2. He pulls you down and makes you insignificant.
• But when the strongman dies, people begin to notice you and favour flows in.
3. The only language the devil understands is the language of violence. Matthew 11 v 12.
• Like our Lord Jesus Christ, when He drove out the money changers and traders in the temple, Mark 11 v 15 – 18,
• Holy anger must rule your life if you are going to get breakthroughs in life.
4. Satan has stolen from you. Matthew 10 v 10
• He has your goods in his store.
• Until you secure firm victory over the strongman, only then can you recover and move out all that he has stolen from you.
• The strongman steals joy, peace, rest, family, finances and jobs amongst many other things.
5. When you secure victory over the strongman, the lesser demons will naturally flee. 1 Sam. 17 v 50,
• The best approach to defeating an enemy group is to kill its leader.
As you pray the following prayers, the Lord will give you victory over the strongman of darkness frustrating your life in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
