Using The Fire Of God In Spiritual Warfare

Dear Friends,

Greetings, and peace to you from God our Father, and Christ Jesus our Lord. This month, we bring you more knowledge on a very important subject. I urge you to spend time to read through the article. It will help you live with power and success everyday.

Spiritual War Is A Daily Reality

Many people are going through very serious hardships that are clearly a result of attacks from the power of darkness. The power of darkness consists of Satan at the head, and his demonic and witchcraft spirits, which constitute his army (Ephesians 6:12). Is this a serious problem? You bet. Let’s say that most of the problems that confront us daily are caused by this evil army (1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6:12). The sole aim of this army is to destroy people and God’s kingdom. To accomplish this, it employs various tactics, which we have discussed in details in other articles.

       So, when you are attacked, do not ignore it, or resort to endless passive prayers and fasting. You must fight back with the right kind of prayers, and the right kinds of weapons. Otherwise, you may end up facing prolonged hardships that can end your life. Are you a soldier of Christ? Then fight as one who is empowered to win.

Facts That Guarantee You Victory

To fight and win, you need to know some few facts, namely:

1. If you have been saved through Christ Jesus, God has delivered you from the power of darkness (Colossians 1:13).

2. Although God has delivered you from the power of darkness, they will, nevertheless, afflict you with their works of darkness, so that you have the opportunity to overcome them and qualify to receive the crown of life, just as Jesus promised (James 1:12, Rev 2:10).

3. God has given a few effective weapons with which you can fight back. One of the most effective of these weapons, is the Consuming Fire of God. If you use this weapon effectively, you’ll destroy these enemies when they come against you.

4. Before applying the fire of God or any of the other weapons, always ensure that you remove any legal ground that gave Satan the legal rights to attack you. What create legal grounds for Satan are, most often, non-confessed personal sins, and unbroken demonic covenants that your close relatives made with Satan, in which you were given as sacrifice, or enjoined as an unwilling participant.

How To Release Fire Against The Enemies

With the above words in mind, here are practical ways that you can apply the fire of God in prayers to destroy evil spirits and bondages such as oppression, captivity, sickness and disease, etc…

A. Firstly, recognize that God often uses His consuming fire to execute immediate judgment on evil spirits who threaten His saints (Rev. 20:9, Amos 7:4).

B. Secondly, recognize that God has made you a flame of fire if you are saved (Luke 3:16, Acts 2:1-4). And even His words that you speak, He has made fire (Jeremiah 5:14). And that He expects you to use this fire to kindle the enemies and destroy them (Obadiah 1:18).

C. Thirdly, you fuel your fire with the words of God, so the flames can shoot out and consume the enemy (Psalm 39:3-4). You then release the flames of fire to kindle and devour the enemy (Obadiah 1:18).

D. Here are examples of how to release the fire effectively. You can find more of similar words in the bible to use. As you speak the following words, they will go forth with flames; though they may be invisible:

1. Father, I am your saint. But enemies have surrounded me, and they intend to destroy me (Rev 20:9)

2. I pray O Father: make your words, which I speak against these evil spirits, FIRE. And make these enemies WOOD. And let the fire of Your words consume them (Jer. 5:14).

3. I am of the house of Jacob, and the Lord has made me a flame of fire. Therefore, in the name of Jesus I kindle all of you evil spirits that trouble me (Obadiah 1:18) (In the case of demonic and witchcraft spirit).

In the name of Jesus, I kindle you spirits of infirmity with fire(in case of sickness & disease).

In the name of Jesus, let the fire consume you to ashes(mention name of disease or


4. ‘For the sins of your mouth and the wicked words of your lips; and for the cursing and lying which you speak’, I kindle you with the fire of God. Lord, consume them in wrath, consume them, That they may be no more. Psalms 59:12-13

5. For surrounding me and my family, and my properties, let ‘fire come down from God out of heaven and consume you evil spirits and diseases, and bondages, until you ‘become ashes under the soles of my feet.’ Rev 20:9, Mal 4.3
