    The enemy wants to bring strife and confusion in America***Christians have authority to bring down these spirits of confususion, AntiChrist, Islamic extremism, homosexuality, and racial strife***Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

    Prologue
    Rev 1:1  This is the revelation of Jesus the Messiah, which God gave him to show his servants the things that must happen soon. He made it known by sending his messenger to his servant John, 


    Rev 1:2  who testified about this message from God and the testimony about Jesus the Messiah. 


    Rev 1:3  How blessed is the one who reads aloud and those who hear the words of this prophecy and obey what is written in it, for the time is near! 


    Greeting to the Seven Churches
    Rev 1:4  From John to the seven churches in Asia. May grace and peace be yours from the one who is, who was, and who is coming, from the seven spirits who are in front of his throne,
     

    Rev 1:5  and from Jesus the Messiah, the witness, the faithful one, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood 


    Rev 1:6  and has made us a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.

    Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

    A lot of the people causing this confusion are Christians.

    The verse you quoted says we wrestle with these things we do not fight them. The only fight we are told fight is the fight of faith...1 Tim 6.12

    Prayer is not fighting demons. Pleas show me one verse that says we are to fight principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Jesus said this about taking authority over spirits: Luk3e 10.17-20

    17 The seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” 18 And He said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.”

I do warn all those who enter into this kind of prayer you will face opposition from evil forces...

    I agree,

    for we read in Jude that Michael the archangel let the Lord rebuke the devil rather than himself.

    1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.


    "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread".......there is a reason for this saying.

    Jesus said to cast them out

    you don't fight with them

    Jesus already fought that battle and won

    maybe you ought to take advantage of that. if you are not engaged, maybe you are no threat

    you do understand that the actual battle is between the powers of darkness and God, right?

    I guess you are wearing a housecoat instead of the armor of Ephesians

    you have no clue why Paul used the metaphor of wrestling, do you

    (that's not a question)

    wrestling is an Olympic sport and was in Paul's day too

    wake up

    I think 88 is speaking of making declarations with the Word. As the Spirit speaks or shows us.

    Am I right or wrong 88?

    Think 88 is trying to say he has a super spiritual revelation that the rest if us are to immature to understand. It is the typical Pentecostal/Charismatic/word of faith non-sense that I used to believe. First of all, homosexuality and the other so call spirits 88 mentions are works of the flesh that need to be repented from, not cast down or taking authority over and fight with in the spiritual realm.

    We need to proclaim the Gospel in it's power so that people will repent, all of these are not spirits they are.
    "Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21

    88 needs to search the Scriptures to understand what the Bible is about.
    John 6:63, 65 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life....65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.”

    I Corinthians 4:7 "For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?"

    Born in the Spirit & word, granted by the Father. EE-TEOW

    Many times we use the authority we have in God to hurt ourselves and others with negative words***we say we can't do something or we say we are weak and it is so***we also speak to others and discourage them by negative words***rather use the authority we have in Christ to Bless what He is Blessing and to Curse what He is cursing...
