The Five “I Wills” of Satan


Isaiah 14:13-14 AMP

And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.

Is this you?

Nine Ways How The Devil Attacks And How Can You Counter It


1) 2 Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Let us wash ourselves off, from every defilement so that all actions that affect the flesh and spirit can become matured into God’s standard.

This standard is the absolute separation from all that is common to this world into a devotion to what is sacred and precious to God.

2) 1 Thess 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The God that brings “shalom peace” bring it into your life. This may He do by separating you totally from all common things, and bringing you to a devotion to the sacred things of God.

This sanctification is accomplished by your spirit, soul, and body each made complete, whole, and without defect, so that your life might not have one source of just criticism placed upon it.

May you be guarded and kept in this condition until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3) 2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Transformed: To alter the outward appearance without a significant inward change.

It is closely illustrated to an architectural schematic, and shows us how the enemy can change the schematic of things.

4) Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

“To give place” is like building an airport runway upon ourselves, for the devil to land upon.

Habitual disobedience to Jesus does this. We create an airport runways on our backs, where the enemy can land and take off at whim.

5) Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

This scripture is not given only to non-Christians. The devil is an equal opportunity attacker.

The Greek word for worketh is giving energy to.

The children of disobedience will allow the devil to energize his schemes.

Disobedience is non-compliant, defiant, and stubborn.

Any person who relates in this way to the voice of the Holy Spirit will allow the devil to energize his schemes, Christian or non Christian.

I know people who have been Christians for 35 years who are in the same predicament of bondage as the day they came to Jesus.

6) John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

“The prince of the world system comes, and it is impossible for him to have the tiniest connection with me.”

The real binding of the enemy occurs when every part of our lives has come into conformity to God’s will, and the enemy is forbidden a place or space where he can afflict us. The demonic had absolutely no relationship with Jesus. This is binding the enemu

7) 2 Timothy 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

That they may return to a sober condition and out of the snare of the devil, after having being hunted down, taken captive, and caught alive by him, in order to do “his” will.

So few understand how the devil manipulates and attacks them.

For many the devil is not real.

Nothing delights him as much as when people believe that he is a figment of the imagination.

8) 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Be controlled, free of evil passions, and serious in in your relationship to Jesus, because your “opponent in court”, the devil, as a roaring lion, lives to earnestly seek, whom he may drink down, swallow, consume, and destroy.

9)  Mat 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

He travels continually throughout arid places “seeking a cessation of his now unpleasant circumstances”, and in no way finds it.

This shows the necessity that demons have to possess a living being

44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

I will return into my house from where I came out, and having arrived finds it vacant and in a perfected state of being swept, and cosmetically adorned, but empty of the Spirit of God.

45 Then he goes and takes along with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and entering in they dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Thus it shall also be for this wicked generation.”

Stop Camping Out In The second Heavens!


2Co 12:2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago–whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows–such a one was caught up to the third heaven.

Romans 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

What does a dead person do?

  • He is free from sin.
  • He is delivered
  • He is free from sickness.
  • He is free from his past.
  • He is free from his old identity.
  • He is not susceptible to rejection.
  • The corpse in fact is the freest person in the earth.

Many times the devil will make you feel that you are the one with the problem.

You are the one who is sick, or depressed, or without energy.

In more than half of the cases, you don’t have the problem.

It’s a lying attack from the outside.

But the devil will make you feel that it’s you, so you can never break free.

I have known for many years that I am dead with Christ, but the revelation never sank in to the point that I could deal with it and go on to the next level.

As long as the revelation of being a corpse in the grave with Jesus is not a total reality, and I still behave like an alive man in any way, the devil will hit me!

The devil would hit me with a sickness, or a problem, or with things that affect alive people, but not dead ones.

As much as I tried to break out into freedom I couldn’t, because freedom belongs to the dead.

So by the devils tactics he kept in the limbo of living in the second heavens.

The first heavens is where we naturally live, on earth.

The third heavens is the one which Paul talk about.

Its where God’s throne is.

It’s what Paul calls heavenly places.

Its where God has raised us up to, to sit at the right hand of God.

In between these two heavens is the second one, where Satan’s principalities, powers, dominions and spiritual wickedness in high places function.

When Christ resurrected, He did so by going through the first heavens, and through the second where He disarmed these principalities and powers and took them as the captive prisoners of a triumphant king, by His victory on the cross.

From there, He proceeded to the third heavens and now sits on the throne of God.

For the Christian, God sees him or her already seated with Him on His throne in the third heaven.

Bu the experience for most of us, is just not so!

Most of us are stuck somewhere in limbo land between the first and the third heavens!

Really, most of the church camps out somewhere in the second heaven, trying and trying to break out on the third, but finding herself in a never ending see saw war.

As long at the revelation of you being as dead as a door nail, and only Christ in you doing all the work through you, has not sunk in, the demons will hit you with things belonging to alive people, and through that, keep you tied up in the slime pits of the second heavens.

The moment that you realize that you are a corpse, you become free from the sin and the sickness and the attack of the demon, and from the slime pit of the second heaven, and suddenly thrust in and through into the third one, to walk and live from above, in heavenly places.

Some rules of engagement to get out of the second and into the third heavens.

What does a dead person do?

He is free from sin.
He is delivered
He is free from sickness.
He is free from his past.
He is free from his old identity.
He is not susceptible to rejection.
The corpse in fact is the freest person in the earth.
The devil does not mess around with a corpse for too long.
The biggest problem that Christians have is that they are way too alive.

Have you ever had an enemy?

God gave me a vision of Jesus Dying on the cross.

Surrounding Him were hundreds of Roman soldiers with menacing spears in their hands.

Sometime during the vision Jesus dies. A little while later, the soldiers begin to realize that the Lord had expired. One by one they left the scene of the crucifixion, their menacing spears no more. Jesus was dead. Everything was over and done.

As long as one is alive, the enemy feels threatened and might attack.

Once the person dies, the enemy has nothing that threatens him and departs. He gets bored with a corpse.

2 Timothy 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

 Greek: That they may return to soberness or awake out of the snare of the devil, after having being hunted down, taken captive, and caught alive by the devil, to do his will.

 The devil is always actively hunting to “catch alive” by trapping our free will and make it to become passive, so that his will in us can then become active.

 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

 Be temperate dispassionate and serious in your life, be awake and watchful, because your opponent in a suit of law, the devil, as a roaring lion, conducts himself around, arduously and earnestly seeking, whom he may drink down, swallow, consume, and destroy.

 Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

To give place to the devil as constructing an airport runway on our back for the devil to land upon! Only our sin and disobedience can do that. Any time that we are in willful disobedience to the Lord, we automatically open up an airport on our backs, where the enemy can land and take off at his personal fancy!

 Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

 Many of us imagine that this focuses on non-Christians. That’s false. The devil is an equal opportunity deceiver.

 The Greek word for worketh is defined as giving energy to.

The sons of disobedience energize the schemes or plans of the devil. The word for disobedience is being non-compliant. If a Christian is continually noncompliant in an area of his or her life to the will of God, will he or she energize the works of the devil? Yup.

Any obstinate, stubborn, defiant, person, Christian or non, will energize the devil’s schemes

 Mat 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 He travels continually throughout differing arid places “seeking a cessation of his now unpleasant circumstances” (because he has been cast out of the man), and in no way finds it (showing the necessity the demons have to possess a living being).

 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

 I will return into my house whence I came out, and having come, finds it vacant and occupied, and in a perfected state of being swept, and cosmetically adorned.

 How many people’s lives are cosmetically adorned on the outside but empty on the inside. They are great target practice for the devil.

2Co 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

 Lest Satan exploit us, for we are not without knowledge of his schemes.

 The word devices for devices is “noema”, or thoughts. The devil has a big thought life which he can interject into an individual’s mind. Thus we must be led by the voice of the Holy Spirit .A mind doing its own thing and independent of the voice of God is a target practice for the devil’s own huge thought life. The devil cannot interject thoughts into the spirit of a person if the Holy Spirit dwells there. Is your mind doing its own thing? If it is you are a practice range for the devil to volley the golf balls of his thought life into it.

How Do You Get Rid of a Demon?


I wrote this several years back!

I will describe one of my biggest battles in dying to my old life and having the Christ take full control.

Until today, I was still one of those children of the onion. Let me explain.

Today one huge stronghold of my control over that of Christ’s fell today.

Any area where our lives are not under the loving control of Christ is an area where the demonic will have its spidery legs wrapped around our soul, health, wealth, and body.

I call it spidery, because God has revealed demons as spiders. Spiders do not have to move much. They are simply there. They suck the life out of you. They roost on top of the sin which you love. They slowly destroy you from this beach head of sin. From there, they weave their spidery webs in the recesses of your soul.  Their long legs wrap themselves into the subconscious areas, and by them, create fortresses of hostility towards God, all in your mind.

The work of demons is obscure. Demons are onion lovers. They hide in onions.  These onions are their cocoons. These types of onions are sins. As the layers of sin peel off, as that of an onion, the demon spider is finally exposed, and Christ expels it out from your life. At the core of every onion called sin, there is always a demon. He is the last one to come out, and only when you have pealed the onion, with the knife of repentance. You can never get to the demon, until you get to the sin. You can never get to the sin as long as you love it.  As long as the onion is there, the demon is right in there, too. The only knife that works is that of repentance.

Demons make you feel that you are the one with the problem.  You are the one who is sick. You are the one who is anxious. When in fact it’s his attack from the outside. He will wound you by means of the spidery legs which work from the shadowy cocoon of sin’s onion.

This well hid spider deceives you.  Its deceptions create a false identity which you embrace.  The identity could be to become famous, or rich, take up a cause, or extol your personal rights, or worse still, to disobey God.

It could be a need to stay sick, in self-pity, to be a martyr, a victim, one who is offended, depressed or unable to forgive.  These breed negative attention. Others attend to you because you are a victim, a martyr, or someone who is ill.

This identity becomes a fortress, a citadel in your mind. You live and die for it. I was still holding to a false identity. Worse still, I was wishing for this identity, and asking God to make me into the person who owned it. This false person had become me. We call this a pseudo fantasy, a false imagination. We idolize our imaginations and fantasies and what we create in them.

The only real identity is Christ in me. Every other identity must die. Every other identity bows its knee to Christ.  Demons only respect Christ. They don’t respect me, or my false fantasies. They don’t respect any other identity, except the one which Christ has, and which is Christ.

So as long as you love any sin, remember that it is an onion, which has a demon at its core and which is still preying on you.  You are still the children of the onion.

The Four Keys To Spiritual Warfare


Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Many of us imagine that Ephesians chapter two is Paul’s discussion focusing on unbelievers. I disagree.

This particular verse is in the present participle.

The verse translates as  “the sons of disobedience energize the scheme of the devil on a continuous basis.”

The word for disobedience is being non-compliant, stubborn, defiant, drawing a line on the sand.

If a Christian is continually non compliant in an area of his or her life, will he or she energize the works of the devil, or is it the one who does not believe in Jesus?

I believe that there is no difference; the devil is a legalist. He will always get in wherever he is given an open door.

I also feel that the same degree of obedience or disobedience to the Lord, will result in the same degree of energizing or disengaging the works of the devil.

Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

We are encouraged here to take the armor of God and “having done all to stand, to stand therefore.”

“Having done all” is the word “katergazomai.’

Simply stated, “having done all, to stand,” is wonderfully depicted by the cartoons of the coyote and the road runner.

In one of their many scuffles, as a ball of dull is kicked up, both of these guys always got lost in their dusty fights. When the dust finally settles, the road runner usually remained standing.

This is exactly what it means to “having done all, to stand.”! We must fight by the Spirit without compromise, or without discouragement, until we remain standing victoriously; as Satan, sin and the world lay scattered at our feet in full visibility, once our ball of dust finally settles!

John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

In John chapter fourteen we find Jesus discussing about His soon to come confrontation with Satan through the hands of Judah, and his later arrest and crucifixion. In all certainty, the words of Jesus are more emphatic in the Greek. In His own words He says, “The prince of the cosmos comes, and it is impossible for him to have even have the tiniest connection with me.”

It goes to say then, that the more that we die to self, so that the magnificent person of Christ is revealed in us, the more and more that the devil will find it impossible to have even the tiniest connection with us.

Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

The true Greek interpretation; we have overcome Satan by means of the blood of the lamb and by means of the word of our martyrdom.

The word for testimony in our New Testament is repeatedly found to be our English word, “martyrdom.”

Satan and his minions will forever grasp, cling, torment, and torture us as long as he finds unrepented of sin, and lingering bondage and hurts from our past. Only the cross of Christ, through the death of our sinful self, will free us from all of this. This in turn will cause Satan to lose his deceptive hold upon us.

The activity of the cross works in direct proportion to our obedience to the voice of God, and the Word of God.

The word of our testimony is not a simple spewing out of scriptural verses upon the enemy. It is a confession of what the cross has done and doing in our lives. Only then, will our words be backed up with the authority of a resurrected life that emerged from martyrdom. The devil cannot touch resurrection life and will back away from us.
