    Pray this prayer, but read through first and understand what you are praying, then pray the second prayer:

    Heavenly Father, I come to You through our Lord Jesus Christ, and I thank You, Lord Jesus Christ, for ALL THINGS in my life.

    Lord Jesus Christ, touch my eyes and help me to see, give me the ears to hear, and to clear my mind, carnal and spiritual, so that I will be renewed.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I loose every strongman of old, wrong, ungodly pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, motivation, habit and behaviour from my life.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I bind my mind and heart, to Your mind and heart, so that every thought, feeling and purpose in my life is of Your mind and heart.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I bind my feet to the path of righteousness, so that my steps will be steady and sure, as I walk that “narrow path.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I bind my body, soul, mind, emotions, will, heart, and spirit with Your Will and Purposes in my life.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I loose the power and effects of seduction, deception and lies from my life.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I bind myself to Your Truth, and to the covering of my “house”, my “temple”, and my “soul” with Your Precious Blood.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I loose all generational bondages and associated strongholds and soul ties from my family and myself.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I loose the power and effects of any harsh or hard words or curses spoken by me against anyone and myself.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I call forth every precious Word of Scripture that has ever entered into my mind and heart that it would rise up in power within me.

    Lord Jesus Christ, Teach my heart to be still, as I rest in You alone. You are my Saviour, Lord, King, Master and Prince of Peace.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I tear down, crush, smash and destroy every stronghold in my life.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I thank You, for Your Counsellor, the Holy Spirit that covers me, and I thank You, Lord Jesus Christ for Your bloodline protection over my family and myself.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I thank You, for the Truth of Your Word, because You are the Word for my healing: in my struggles; of my broken-heart; of my illnesses; of my “soul”, by setting me free from captivity, and delivering me from evil.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I pray and ask all of this in Your Precious Name.


    Micah 5:12: “I will destroy your witchcraft and you will no longer cast spells.”


    Heavenly Father, we come to You through our Lord Jesus Christ we cover ourself and anyone who reading this submission with the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.


    We ask You, Lord to place Your warrior angels all round us and to protect us. Through Your mighty power we break down all the powers of darkness’s protection that is round all witches, warlocks, wizards, satanists, sorcerers, occultists, and the like, and we break the power through Your mighty power of all curses, hexes, vexes, spells, charms, fetishes, psychic prayers, psychic thoughts, all witchcraft, sorcery, magic, voodoo, all mind control, jinxes, potions, bewitchments, death, destruction, sickness, pain, torment, psychic power, psychic warfare, prayer chains, incense and candle burning, incantations, chanting, blessings, hoodoo, crystals, root works, and everything else being sent as weapons against us, our families, members of the healing and deliverance ministries, and anyone reading this submission, and we cut of all power from Satan and his forces and his children through Your might power, Lord and destroy all their lay lines that have put in place, and all assignments, in Jesus' Name.

    Heavenly Father, we come to You, covered in the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that You are the ruler far above all principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual hosts. We ask that You would break all assignments, spells, curses, incantations, vows and other forms of harm set against me, in Jesus' Name.

    We ask that You would cancel any such assignment and prevent all influences by forces of darkness. All evil spirits and forces of darkness allowed access through this assignment, we renounce you and all your works and all your ways in the Name of Jesus. I am a child of God and you are trespassers here. We command you to depart, never to return, in Jesus' Name.

    Heavenly
    Father, we ask that You fill us with Your presence and bring light fully, setting darkness under Your feet. Thank You, we ask in faith and we do receive, in Jesus' Name.

    The very strongest prayer that can be prayed is the prayer given to us by the LORD our GOD:


    Our Father, who art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy name.
    Thy Kingdom come,
    thy will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.


    Amen

    I will be praying for you brother.:prayer:
    You also should do some reflecting on what's going on in your own life. I don't why this happening to you but I was remind of acouple of verse from Mathew that make it pretty clear that if there is underlying spritiual problem your not going to be able band aid it.

    Mathew 12:43-45(New King James Version)

    43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”

    Praying & standing in Agreement with all the others!!

    I have been dealing with the same situation. I agree with the others as well. Go before the Lord & ask Him in what area of your life is there lack. The enemy has gotten in because of an area of your life (mine as well) that wasn't submitted to the Lord.

    Our mind is where the battle is & that is where the enemy will hit us first. Read & keep reading the Word of God. The Word of God is our Sword to fight against those attacks of the enemy. Start speaking the Word against the attacks of the enemy & believe that the Word you are speaking!! The enemy will flee from you (James 4:7).

    Be blessed Brother!!

    Study the Armor of God, the Helmet Protects your Mind.... Put on your Armor everyday, as soon as you wake up...
    go.
    The Whole Armor of God
    [​IMG] Eph 6:11-17 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

    And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    Paul the Apostle wrote the book of Ephesians during a time when he was in Rome under an unusual type of arrest. This arrest allowed him to reside in his own house, and come and go, but required him to be continually chained to a Roman soldier. For this reason, Paul became very knowledgeable about the armor and implements of warfare belonging to the man to which he was chained.
    Paul refers to the whole armor (panoplia, pan-op-lee'-ah) as being one word as opposed to two, and seems to imply that the armor was an all or nothing proposition. Then he tells us what the armor is for. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. So the armor is for us to take a stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood. So it is not to be used against mankind. Unfortunately, the first thing some new believers do is to put on the armor and begin to do battle with unbelievers. Just as bad are the believers that do battle with other believers. But this is not what the armor of God is for.

    He speaks of the wiles (methodeia)of the devil. Methodeia is a Greek word that denotes a path or roadway that is traveled over. This is because the devil continuously attempts to secure a foothold so that he may begin construction of a roadway to your mind.

    Next we are briefed on who the enemy is.

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities (chiefs) against powers (authorities) against the (world) rulers of the darkness (obscurity) of this world (age or time) against spiritual (supernatural) wickedness (malicious hurtfulness) in high places (above the sky).

    This is the hierarchy of the devil and all his lower level devils and demons. From his perspective, he is the god of this world and has a pecking order of intelligent princes and mindless grunts to do his works of oppression (influence, depression, oppression, obsession and possession).

    Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand (resist) in the evil day, and having done all, to stand, stand therefore

    So here again we see that we are to take a stand of resistance against the devil and all of his cohorts. And by extension, we are to stand in resistance against all the works of the devil. James 4:7 says resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

    I want to point out that this is the armor of an intercessor, and that intercession is much more than prayer! This is Jesus’ armor!

    Isa 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

    Isa 59:17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.

    Now let's examine each piece of the armor that Paul is describing.

    The Belt (Girt) of Truth
    [​IMG] The Belt is not the most noticeable piece of the armor, however, it is actually the central piece that holds all the rest securely in place and provides for every need during battle. The belt was broad and made of sturdy leather. From it hung an overlapping skirt of leather straps which on the inside surface were armored with small rectangular pieces of metal held in place by decorative rivets which showed on the outside. Also from the belt hung specialized hooks and holders on which to secure the scabbard that contained the sword at the proper angle, the quiver which held lances, and an apparatus on which to rest the large battle shield. Also, on the belt were clips with which to hold the breastplate in its proper place. Supplies of bread, oil and water were also on the belt.
    Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth.

    Paul called this the belt of ‘Truth’. What could he have been referring to?
    In John 17:17 Jesus says, “Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.”

    The written Word (or logos) of God, the Bible is that ‘Truth.’ Does this mean the New Testament and the Old Testament? The first chapter of John also reveals that Jesus was (and is) the living Word of God, and that He, Jesus, was the God (Eloiem) of the Old Testament as well as the Incarnate Word of the New Testament.

    John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    2 Cor 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

    Just as the belt is central to the armor of God, the written Word of God (the Bible) is central to all that pertains to spiritual warfare. Knowing by the written Word that we have been made and are the righteousness of God, will tightly secure our breastplate of righteousness. Faith (the shield) comes by hearing the Word of God. Also, we are to fill our hearts with the Word of God. In this case, the scabbard, which holds the sword, could represent the heart filled by the Word of God. And “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” When our heart is full of the written Word, we can unsheathe the sword of the spoken Word of God. When we hear the Word of the Spirit speak to our spirit, we can always test what was said by comparing it to the written Word. We can be confident that we are in the will of God by knowing, living by and walking in the promises of the written record of the Word of God.

    1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us:

    Hold up your Bible and repeat this confession:

    This is my bible.

    It is the Incorruptible,

    the Indestructible,

    Ever-living seed,

    of the Word of God.

    I am what it says I am.

    I have what it says I have.

    I can do what it says I can do.

    In Jesus' name.

    The Breastplate of Righteousness
    [​IMG] The Breastplate was really a work of art. Each breastplate was custom made for the soldier that wore it. Often a casting was made of the man’s torso. This negative casting was then used to make a positive of the torso. The positive was overlaid with brass that was beaten to conform to the details of the torso. Breastplates were often made very elaborate with additional decorations and polished to a brilliant mirror finish that was blinding in the sunshine. Despite its beauty, the breastplate was very functional, protecting the heart and other vital organs from penetration through its metal shell.
    Stand therefore, … having on the breastplate of righteousness;

    2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
    Jesus, who was righteous, took on and bore every form of sin and darkness that belonged to us, and in exchange, placed on us His righteousness, making us (you and me) the righteousness of God!

    What is righteousness? It simply means, “Right standing before God.” Or in legal terms it means being found innocent. Just as Justification is the act of being acquitted.

    In 2 Cor 6:7 Paul first refers to righteousness as ‘armor,’ which most likely came from the book of Isaiah.

    Isa 59:17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate.

    All too many Christians do not know that they have been made righteous. The majority of all Christians are right now walking in constant guilt and condemnation, feeling like failures and not ‘worthy’ to serve God or receive anything from Him. The devil is constantly bombarding man with missiles of lies and accusations and reminders of past sin. Without the breastplate of righteousness, these missiles will penetrate your heart.

    Also, the devil will try to talk you out of your breastplate. He will 'tell' you that you are not righteous, not worthy. He will throw the sins of your past right into your face. The very sins that you have been acquitted of, the very sins that God has removed as if never existing.

    Here are just a few scriptures on righteousness:

    Psa 37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

    This is saying that the righteous will always be able to outlast the wicked.

    Prov 10:30 The righteous shall never be removed:

    Rom 3:21-22 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe

    Rom 5:17 For if by one man's (Adam's) offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ

    Man was an eternal criminal before God and could not approach His throne. But now, because Jesus graciously gave the believer His righteousness, then all the believer has to do is to receive it by faith, and it changes him! He has been found innocent of all charges and is righteous in the eyes of God. He can now boldly approach the throne of God.

    God has freely imparted righteousness to you and that righteousness serves you as a beautiful and effective breastplate.

    It is a God-given righteousness. It will give a boldness and confidence you never thought possible.

    When you know you wear the breastplate of righteousness, you will pray in power and authority.

    See yourself as God sees you!

    Say it! I am the righteousness of God!

    I have on the breastplate of righteousness!

    The Shoes of the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace
    [​IMG] The Shoes or sandals of the Roman soldier were no normal footwear. Great care was taken by Rome to supply the soldiers with appropriate footwear for their assignment. Their shoes (or boots) consisted of an elaborately cut and laced sandal of which the sole was layers of metal and leather with ‘hob nail’ spikes extending one-half inch, to in some cases ‘inches,’ from the sole to plant into the ground to keep them from being moved. Some had toe spikes and or built-in spurs with which to do damage to the enemy. The uppers of the sandals were often armored by small overlapping pieces of metal riveted to the leather straps. In addition, attached to the uppers of the sandal were removable metal greaves that extended up over the kneecap protecting the knees, shins and ankles.
    Stand therefore, having … your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

    Before you go somewhere, you have to make preparation to dress and equip yourself for the occasion, climate and terrain. If you are going downtown, are you going to put on your mountain climbing boots, leather shorts, backpack and climbing gear? If you are going into the jungle swamps, do you wear your arctic parka, insulated long underwear and snowshoes? The same kind of preparation is required concerning the gospel. Which shoes do I need? How should I prepare them?

    Where are we to go? What are we to do when we get there?
    The resurrected Jesus said for us to, “Go into all the world.” And do what? “Go into all the world and preach.” Preach what? Preach the gospel.
    That brings up a good question. What is the gospel? One organization seems to teach one thing and another teaches something else.

    The Bible speaks of:

    The Gospel of The Kingdom

    The Gospel of God

    The Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ

    The Gospel of Peace

    The Gospel of your salvation

    Confusing? It shouldn't be. The “Gospel” simply means “Good News.”

    Jesus preached the “Good News!” He didn't preach that God was a harsh judge and if you do wrong He is going to kill you and send you to hell! Would that be “Good News?” He didn't preach that God killed your loved one to get you closer to Him. No, that's not “Good News” either.

    This is the gospel that Jesus preached:

    Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me (the Anointed One, the Messiah) to preach the gospel (good news) to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance (release) to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to [set at liberty] (send out as delivered) those who are oppressed (bruised, trampled and stepped on, crushed and broken down by calamity) to preach (proclaim) the acceptable, (and accepted) year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound (Isa 61:1-2)]. Then He said, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled, here and now!”

    The ‘Good News’ that He preached was that God Himself, has come to earth, as a man called Jesus to remit our sins by becoming our sacrificial atonement, thereby providing our whole and complete salvation, if we become citizens of His Kingdom by making Him our personal Lord and King. In doing so, even more good news was introduced to us. We were introduced to God the Father. We were introduced to the Holy Spirit. It was revealed that Jesus was the God (Elohiym) of the Old Testament, which walked with Adam in the garden, and taught Moses and the prophets. We were shown by example, that complete salvation was more than spiritual, but also physical, mental, emotional, financial, educational, etc. That the God-given dominion and authority of mankind in the earth, lost by Adam, has been reclaimed by Jesus, and has been delegated to the subjects of His Kingdom through power of attorney to use His mighty Name. Oh and so much more!

    Yes the Gospel IS the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ! But is SO MUCH MORE!

    Are you prepared? Are you prepared to save the lost? Are you ready to cast out demons? Are you ready to lay hands on the sick, and SEE them healed? Are you ready to take a stand against the oppression of the Devil? Because STANDING is what you are called to do. We are to prepare and equip ourselves (and others) to ‘stand’ as a ‘Peace Keeping Force.’

    The devil (Satan) is an outlaw and even though he and his group of renegades have been defeated and disarmed by Jesus, they still come to steal, kill and destroy in the world. Therefor we are to prepare and equip ourselves (and others) to ‘STAND’ against them. Plus the word "shoes" in the Greek means something that you "put under your feet". Aren't we supposed to put Satan under our feet?

    If I told you that your assignment was to take a stand directly in the path of the attacking enemy, you would want to be equipped and prepared. You would also want an army of like equipped and prepared soldiers standing shoulder to shoulder with you! Because that IS your assignment! Strap on your spiked armored boots with the metal greaves, so that once you balance yourself and plant your long spikes deeply into the ground you cannot be moved!

    The Shield of Faith
    [​IMG] There were actually two types of shields used by Roman soldiers of the day. One, a small (24”-36” diameter) round one, was for dress parades. The other, was a large (60”x30”) rectangular shield that in Greek was named, “a door,” because it looked like the soldier was carrying a full size leather covered door behind which he could safely stand. Each shield was made of six layers of thick animal hide specially tanned and woven together making them as tough and durable as metal yet relatively light weight. The leather shields could be soaked in water before battle so that in the event the enemy would rain fiery projectiles on them, the fire would be extinguished on impact.
    Above all, we are to take (violently seize) the shield of faith, with which we shall be able (have the power) to extinguish all (every) flaming darts (arrows, spears, missiles) of the wicked (rotten, worthless Devil).

    But what is faith?

    Heb 11:1 Says that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    We not only have to have and ‘seize’ the shield of faith, we have to know how to use it. When God began revealing the things of faith to me, He started with Mark 11:23-24.

    Jesus speaking beginning in vs. 22:

    Have faith in God.

    Mark 11:23 Now listen, I telling you the absolute truth here, That whoever shall say directly to this mountain, (problem, situation, disease, etc.) “Mountain, Get out of my way, and go jump in the lake!”; and will not doubt in his heart, but will have faith that what he said will happen; he will have whatever he said.

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

    The Greek literally says:

    Therefore, say what soever you suppose to ask. Pray, have faith, receive and you shall have (or, it shall come to pass).

    Now this is the framework of how faith works! And we are talking about how to use the shield of faith!

    Rom 10:17 Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the (rhema, or spoken) Word of God.

    This is how faith comes! This is how to take or seize the shield of faith, by hearing the spoken Word of God. So, the Word of God is what faith should be based upon. Now, back to how to use it. Jesus told us to speak aloud directly to the situation based upon what the Word says. He said that if we do, and have faith in what the Word said, and do not doubt, that we will have whatever we said! Now how do we express to God, that we have faith and do not doubt, during the time we are waiting for the manifestation of what we said to arrive? We praise God and give thanks for it as though it had already manifested! This is not particularly easy when what you are wielding your shield of faith against is a sickness or disease that is causing severe pain or discomfort, but without the shield of faith you are an open target to the enemy. So what I am saying is that the shield of faith in application is praise and thanksgiving.

    Why does it say ‘above all’ take the shield of faith? Simply for the reason that salvation (the helmet) righteousness (the breastplate) the gospel (the shoes) and both the written Word of God (the belt of truth) and spoken Word of God (the sword) must all be received by faith. Healing, deliverance and forgiveness must also be received by faith.

    The shield of faith is movable to deflect attacks no mater from which direction they come. For if the devil cannot get to you directly (from the front) he will attack from another direction. If all personal attacks on you fail because of the strength of your faith, he will often attack you through another person to attempt to provoke fear or offense to allow him a foothold. Refusal to fear or be offended will foil even these attacks.

    Individuals can even combine their shields of faith together by joining their faith with that of other believers, creating a wall and or a roof of protection during a mass attack.

    The Helmet of Salvation
    [​IMG] The helmet was the most noticeable piece of armor. It was often ornate, intricately decorated and plumed with brightly dyed feathers or horsehair. Some parade dress helmets had course horsehair plumes that would extend to the waist. The Roman helmet was designed so that blows from sword, hammer or ax could not pierce it but would be deflected and yet allow the soldier maximum visibility.
    And take the helmet of salvation...

    We are to take (receive) the helmet of salvation, (wholeness, deliverance, health). Without the helmet of salvation, we would spiritually, loose our head. The helmet of salvation protects the mind. If your salvation is not tightly strapped around your head, all the benefits, (Psa 103:2) and manifold blessings are vulnerable to being surgically removed from your theology. The enemy will come and knock your helmet sideways by telling you that healing, deliverance and wholeness (spiritually, physically, emotionally, mentally, etc.) is not really included in the redemptive work of the broken body and shed blood of Jesus on the cross. All the enemy will allow you to retain of salvation is heaven, and will then proceed to send you there as quickly as he can first steal and destroy everything you have.
    [Don’t get me wrong, nothing is wrong with heaven! In fact I plan on being there myself. But even if eternal salvation IS the most important part, it’s still not the only part! If you attend a church that ONLY teaches salvation or the new birth some call it, they may be sending you into battle with a beautiful helmet strapped on your head, but otherwise you are standing there stark naked! With nothing to protect you from the fiery darts of the enemy, you are wide open to every attack of the devil.]

    The Devil knows that to control you he needs to control areas of the mind. The old saying is that if you give the Devil a ride, he will end up driving the car. If you allow him access to your mind (even just a tiny foothold) he will attempt to begin construction on a four-lane freeway into it. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is wrong with heaven! In fact, I plan on being there myself. But even if eternal salvation IS the most important part, it’s still not the only part! If you attend a church that ONLY teaches salvation or the new birth some call it, they are sending you into battle with your beautiful helmet strapped on your head, but otherwise you are standing there stark naked!

    The Sword of the Spirit (The Word [Rhema] of God)
    [​IMG] The sword of a Roman soldier of that day, was a feared weapon. Short, lightweight and well balanced, it was quick and deadly. The two razor sharpened edges of the broad blade could easily slice a roast. And, the flared and tapered point was designed to easily penetrate and disembowel the enemy. It was well known that if a Roman soldier ever unsheathed his sword -- he would use it.
    And take … the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God...

    We are to take (receive) the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word (rhema, or spoken) of God. This is another instrument of spiritual warfare that we need to learn how to use.
    The rhema Word, in the context of the sword, is you, the soldier, speaking (or quoting) aloud the logos (written Word) or the rhema (spoken Word) that was sown into your heart.

    Remember the parable of the sower?

    Mark 4:3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

    Mark 4:4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

    Mark 4:5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

    Mark 4:6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

    Mark 4:7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

    Mark 4:8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

    Then Jesus explained the parable, adding, “If you don't understand THIS parable, you won’t understand anything I say.”

    Mark 4:14 The sower soweth the word.

    Mark 4:15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

    Mark 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

    Mark 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

    Mark 4:18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

    Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

    Mark 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold (3000%) some sixty (6000%) and some an hundred, (10,000%).

    So the Word is sown into the heart.

    Remember that the scabbard that held the sword hung on the belt of truth, the logos, the Bible, the written Word of God. The Bible is the source of the Word that needs to fill your heart, (the scabbard). Then when needed, the sword (the rhema Word) can be smoothly extracted from the scabbard (heart) and wielded effectively.

    Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure, (deposit) of his heart produces that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure (deposit) of his heart produces that which is evil: for (out) of the superabundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.

    We are to use the very same sword of the spirit that Jesus used on the Mount of Temptation! Now, the devil has been tempting, Jesus for forty days while Jesus was fasting.

    Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. (i.e., “Do what I say do!”)

    Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God, [Deu 8:3]. (i.e., I do what GOD says to do, not you devil!”) The sword was so sharp that I don't think the devil felt the cut.

    Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

    Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

    Luke 4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

    Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

    Again Jesus slices the devil!

    Now, the Devil has already been sliced left and then right with the sword of the Spirit cutting a big “X” on his chest which he now feels then sees. So now Satan pulls his own sword and tries to copy and twist what Jesus is doing!

    Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

    Luke 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

    Luke 4:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    Jesus deflects the attack and plunges His sword of the Spirit deep into the Devil’s heart of hearts, leaving him seriously wounded.

    Luke 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    After this the Devil retreated to lick his wounds for a while.

    So then, to properly wield the sword, you must be knowledgeable of what the Bible says (particularly the promises and statements of fact) and receive that word into your heart. Keep receiving to the point that your heart begins to overflow out of your mouth, in the power of the Holy Spirit and authority of the Name of Jesus. So when the devil comes and gets close enough to attack your mind, pull the sword and perforate his stony heart.

    The Lances of Prayer
    [​IMG] Roman soldiers carried an assortment of lances. Long and short lances. Lances with single head, duel heads and trident lances. Some were for throwing like spears. Others were for close quarter combat. Each lance had it’s function and purpose.
    By analogy the lances fit nicely as Paul continues by says:
    Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication.

    Paul is referring to prayer of all types. For instance, the prayer of intercession, the prayer of faith, the prayer of thanksgiving, the prayer of supplication, the prayer of agreement, the prayer of petition, corporate prayer and of course praying in the Spirit, (or tongues). It is important to understand and keep in mind that prayer, all prayer, is about relationship and not ritual. In the Old Testament, prayer was often compared to sweet incense, showing that our prayer is a personally pleasant experience to God.

    1 Tim 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands.

    The Hebrew word ‘towdah’ is used throughout the Old Testament translated as thanksgiving, praise and confession. The word itself refers to the extending or lifting of hands.

    The New Testament word ‘aiteo’ is translated “I ask or demand.” At first glance these concepts of demanding my seem offensive to some, but consider what John 15:7 has to say, “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask (aiteo, demand or require) what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” The concept is one of a covenant, conditional to the first half of the verse.

    1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

    1 John 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

    What is the confidence that we have? And, how do we know what the will of God is? Let's go back a few verses.

    1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

    1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    The ‘record’ he is referring to here is the written Word of God, the Bible! So, what is the confidence that we have? And, how do we know what the will of God is? The will of God is simply what God has already SAID in the Bible through promises and statements of fact! If we know what God said his will was and what he promised us, we can have confidence and boldness to ‘aiteo,’ ask or demand these things.

    The problem is on many levels. Most Christians do not know what God has promised in his word, therefor they do not know God’s will and have no confidence to receive what God has for them. Religious tradition has taught all too many that they are unworthy worms lower than snail spit, and as a result, people are actually afraid to ask for anything, let alone know how to receive from God. And then we have the ever popular “Suffering doctrine,” which is a ‘doctrine of devils’ designed to keep mankind in sickness, disease, poverty and ignorance, (to the “glory” of Jesus!)

    Conclusion

    Now it’s time for you to put on the whole armor of God.

    As you repeat after me, envision that you take each piece of the armor and put it on.

    I put on:

    the belt of truth,

    the breastplate of righteousness;

    shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace;

    Above all, I take the shield of faith, wherewith I will have the power to quench every fiery darts the devil fires my way.

    I take the helmet of salvation

    I take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    I take the lances of Prayer which is all types of prayer and supplication in the Spirit,

    Now I have the power to withstand evil, and take my stand as a solider in the army of the Almighty God.

    My duty and assignment is to stand in the gap shoulder to shoulder with the other soldiers of the Lord as He places me. Resisting every attack of the devil. Holding the ground, refusing to be moved, healing the oppressed and destroying every work of the devil.

    Remember to put this armor on each and every day, and like the credit card commercial says, “Don’t leave home without it!”

    unfortunately, for the last weeks there has been a peak of the antichrists' attack, many others also felt and underwent it in the same way you described above according to your experience (from before 7-8 years), today i felt some of them tried to inculcate unrighteous thoughts in my mind including such that are against the true Saints

    Blessings
