TOPIC: Arresting the Arrester
1 Corinthians 1:19; 3:19; Job 5:13
Psalm 9:15“The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.”
It is a mark of spiritual weakness to remain a victim of satanic arrest. Victory starts when you begin to arrest the arrester. I was told a story of two boys who went on a journey to a village. They bought certain things. But some people, who met them on their way back, beat them up and took away all that they had bought. When they got home, they reported their plight to their father who promised to assist them to prevent a future occurrence.
So, during their next trip to that village, their daddy gave them a small ring and instructed them to use it on anybody who harassed them. He assured them that since the ring carried enough power, if they slap their victim with it, he will fall down and begin to urinate. During the journey, the older of the two boys had the ring on. However, nobody harassed them. But, they themselves now started to look for trouble.
They deliberately provoked other people, so that they could use the ring on them. They really trusted in the ring. They decided to fight one particular man. But, something happened. Mistakenly, the ring on the finger of the older boy dropped on the floor and they could not pick it. Sensing danger, the man struggled with them and picked the ring. Then trouble started. He slapped the two boys with the ring and the two of them started urinating uncontrollably.
Beloved, when the boys had that ring, they had confidence in themselves. The same thing applies to Christians. The reason many Christians are very fearful today is because they do not have power. The spiritual weapons that ought to give them power and confidence are lacking. Many are even ignorant of their usage. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual. When, as a Christian, you know how to use your spiritual weapons, you will begin to experience certain miracles which you have never experienced before.
You will also be confident at all times. If anyone says you should not go to certain places which, by right, is a place to go, you will ignore him and go. If they say someone is powerful, you will throw the statement back at them, by saying that Jesus is more powerful than the person! Then, you will march forward and employ your weapons there. Any you shall experience God’s miracle.
The wise of this world must be taken in their own craftiness. The arrester must be arrested. You must destroy the wisdom of the wise. You must dribble the dribbler.
The mystery of positioning is that the moment you are truly where God wants you to be, everything you would ever need to achieve success will beckon to you.
The voice of the enemy shall not prevail over your life, rather you shall disgrace them.
