Strongholds Part 3 – Why Your Prayers WILL be Answered (Pulling Down the Strongholds of Powerless Prayer)
Would you like to be completely assured that your prayers will be answered? You can pray with confidence and authority, and receive whatever you ask for in prayer. This empowering message will teach you how you can pull down the strongholds of powerless prayer. When you get ahold of how powerful this supernatural resource of prayer is and how to use it effectively, you will pray with boldness and authority. Whenever you speak to mountains, they will move, and you will receive whatever you ask for when you pray.
Strongholds are lies from the devil. They are built up in your mind and try to control you, so you give up on your faith, and quit on God. This inspiring and empowering message will reveal to you from the Bible five lies that the devil tells you to get you to quit, and will show you how to systematically pull them down so they no longer affect you in a negative way.
The battle that you are in is not against flesh and blood. For the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. This message will teach you what strongholds really are, and how to pull them down and experience the freedom that belongs to you.
We often forget that the gospel must shape how we live and interact with one another, how we lead our families, pursue our careers, fill our free time, view the political scene, and so on. And then in the midst of all of this we forget that we have an adversary who is committed to frustrating us … an adversary that is looking to devour us. We are too often lulled to sleep - which makes us east targets for the devil. This is why Peter pairs sober mindedness with the command to be watchful. Peter says, "Wake up! Pay Attention! Think soberly about your adversary the devil and keep your eyes open for his wiles.
Your adversary, the devil, wants to continually accuse you and remind you of your faults, what you have done wrong, and what you haven't done right. He is constantly telling you how much of a failure you are, how far you have fallen short of the glory of God, how distant you are from God's original plan for your life, and how many times you have failed and fallen. The good news is that he is a liar, and so everything that he says is not true. Therefore, you can rejoice! This powerful and inspiring teaching will reveal to you how you can tell the difference between the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the condemnation of the devil. This revelation will cause you to win in spiritual warfare so you can enjoy the victory that is yours, and will help you experience the blessings that God has already purchased for you!
In the Bible, becoming a Christian isn't based on a decision or a belief system. It's about regeneration.
We sometimes refer to God as the author of our lives. Did you know that the Devil is also an aspiring "writer"? If we allow his temptations to begin to shape our lives we are allowing him to script our future. God writes our story with the purest love we can hope to know. The Devil, on the other hand, writes out of lust and desire for you. Follow along as Pastor D.M. Gates helps us understand the difference in this important message
