Prophetic word for today:
Today, God shall use the red sea to bury your enemies.
Judges 2:11-12 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
11 So the Israelites did something very evil before the Lord. They began serving the false god Baal. 12 It was the Lord, the God their ancestors worshiped, who had brought the Israelites out of Egypt. But they stopped following him and began to worship the false gods of the people living around them. This made the Lord angry.
Today our devotional lesson will centre on certain ladders of the enemy you must destroy. We shall also take a look at certain characteristics you must destroy and we shall also take a look at certain characteristics of dark ladders used or employed by the kingdom of darkness.
Dark ladders are strong. The devil knows the type of activities to be carried out. Hence, he does not make use of weak ladders, if a ladder is likely to break too soon the devil will not use it. The devil will rather construct a very strong ladder which will enable agents of darkness to climb back and forth on in order to discharge their evil duties.
When you are confronted by strong ladders, it may be hard to stop evil activities that have been carried out against you. You need to survey the strength of the ladder of darkness so that you can know how to tackle, destroy, paralyse and render such ladder useless.
When you are confronted by a very strong ladder and efforts are weak, you have already lost the battle. To experience victory over wicked ladders, you need to survey the strength of the ladder and know the kind of spiritual artillery you can make use of against the ladder.
Dark ladders are subtle satanic instruments. The devil may not always advertise the ladder he uses. Sometimes, he will construct the ladders in order to achieve the ultimate goal. When the devil is making use of subtle dark ladders, he might wage war on a particular life and achieve the goals without anyone suspecting what the enemy is up to.
The devil has made use of subtle ladders to destroy several victims. A subtle instrument is often cleverly constructed and utilised. When the devil comes against you with this type of subtle instrument, it takes serious warfare; divine wisdom and grace from above to overcome and destroy such a wicked instrument.
Dark ladders are stubborn. The devil does not easily give up. The devil operates as a stubborn pursuer. Even when you try to push the ladder away, he might budge for a moment but come back soon to begin or continue the activity again. The stubbornness and the resilience of the devil's ladder is one of the reasons why he succeeds most of the time.
The devil will not easily cower in when you come up with aggression. You need to sustain aggression to defeat the stubbornness of the kingdom of darkness. You need to pound the devil's ladder to submission by coming up with equal aggression and stubbornness. No wonder the Bible says in the time of John the Baptist that the kingdom of God suffereth violence, and the violent taketh it by force. You need to confront satanic stubbornness with stubbornness.
You must tackle the devil with stubborn resilience and aggression if you want to defeat the ladder of darkness.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Let the wall of challenges against my breakthroughs break, in the name of Jesus.
My neck shall not be broken by territorial spirits, in the name of Jesus.
Blood poured on the ground will not eat me up, in the name of Jesus.
My portion is not with the dead, in the name of Jesus.
Every medicine poured on the ground to subdue my life, I destroy you, in the name of Jesus.
I destroy the hand of every witchdoctor working against me, in the name of Jesus.
Any blood sacrifice against me, let the life in you be provoked to smite the enemies, in the name of Jesus.
