Strategic Warfare that Turns the Battle - #7 Divided they Fall
7. Divided they Fall. If we are not committed to waging war against the enemy then we will never establish unity. The enemy does not want unity; he wants power, control and dominion. Those forces are violently opposed to one another. Appearances of being on the same side are just that: appearance, for the sake of deception. The enemy is a master of disguise. Enemies take captives, and prisoners of war are held in bondage to the will of the oppressor. They are often spiritually weak, fearful and unsure what to do. That is why God needs warriors to pray them free. Jesus instructed us that we could not plunder the strongman’s house until those in it were divided. The enemy understands the power of unity. That is why he works very hard to cause division everywhere he can. It’s our turn to send disunity into the enemy’s camp so that in doing so it weakens ungodly authority structures. Divided leadership will split the house. In marriage, family, church, politics, or where ever there is division, it causes weak and unstable leadership. Where loyalties are divided, they can be exploited, and weak and unstable leadership can be toppled. Use this understanding to your advantage and pray out what needs to go! This is called calculated disorder. What often seems to be caused by the enemy is actually God using the enemy in a very strategic manner. The process of tearing things apart sets the captives free. Compromise with the enemy is not an option! The disorder is just a set up for something new. Don't let it cause fear. Chaos always precedes order. Divide Satan's house then prophetically declare God’s order and divine authority to be set in place. Remember, however, not to gloat when an opponent falls. Be gracious. Humiliating those that are already defeated only creates animosity and sets the stage for a possible return ambush when you least expect it. Turn an enemy into a friend if at all possible. God is the only one that can treat an enemy graciously while at the same time humiliating him and letting him know he is defeated. (Read 2 Kings 6:18-23). #Calculateddisorder, #dividethehouse,
I take authority over the strongman of Lust, Control and Witchcraft. May they be bound and rendered powerless, impotent and silenced in every place that concerns me and my future. I release the Spirit of Humility, Peace and Purity over every place You have called me to rule and have influence. I pray for Your strategic intervention everywhere You desire to set Your people in place. I ask you to send the right situations that will create calculated disorder to weed out, pluck up and remove ungodly authority. Create enmity where it’s needed in order to divide loyalties and separate the wicked from the righteous, those that serve their own agenda from those that desire to serve Yours. Pull out those that the enemy will use for hindering the plans and purposes of God, and remove the opportunists, those resistant to change, and those that lust for power, position and preeminence. Set in place those that You have chosen, tested and approved for promotion. Establish godly leadership that will submit to Your will and allow Your kingdom plans and purposes to prevail. Let the Spirit of Unity release the anointing that brings great fruitfulness and peace, to Your glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
"If Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but he is finished! "But no one can enter the strong man's house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.” Mark 3:26,27
“Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? But this is what the LORD says: "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.” Isaiah 49:24,25
