The Devil's Most Popular Strategy

Psalms 144:1 Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth(trains) my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:



The devil knows that a divided house cannot stand. This is the reason why he uses divisions in church by using Christians to war against their own brethren, which  of course strengthens the devil.

The devil causes divisions on every possible level of relationship.

  • Churches with each other relationship. In the church Christians become overly judgmental and even think they are being used of God to fight others. Instead of helping the wounded soldier, they hurt them even more by being judgmental because they think that they fell because they were under God's judgment. In so doing they help the devil by attacking their fellow Christians. I have seen a case whereby a ‘pastor’ targets the weak vulnerable members by luring them to sin with him by disguising himself as kind, comforting and caring. Such type of people are used of the devil to even hurt the wounded ones more and more and therefore pushing them farther and farther from God. This is usually very easy to happen because the wounded ones are imprisoned by fear, depression, condemnation and shame. Being true servants of God, let us identify such Christians so as to be able to help, encourage and pray for them to stand firm in faith and to receive deliverance from bonds of shame, guilt, condemnation and shame.

  • Congregation with their pastor relationship. If there is no unity between the pastor and the congregation, blessings of God are hindered and the work of God is affected.Unity is power.

  • Husband and wife relationship. If you are a married couple and you find yourself going for a day, a week, a month or even an year without communication in the house, you should know that you are under attack. In most cases, when ladies are upset, they resort to cold war whereby they don't talk to their spouse. This kind of thing is very common in most marriages because people don't realize that it is the strongest weapons in the devil’s armoury – silence. Silence between married people gives the devil a chance to work in the minds of each one of them putting a wide wedge between you. Ladies, cheer up when your husband arrives home, welcome him warmly even if you are upset about something. Later, when he is jovial, rested and happy, then you can discuss what you are upset about. I promise you that he will be willing to listen and to do something about it when the atmosphere is jovial, cozy, welcoming  and appealing than when the atmosphere is tense  and scaring. Ephesians 4:26 commands,  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Psalms 133 says that God will command the blessing, even life for evermore to a home where brethren dwell together in unity. I don't want to be the reason of God not blessing me by not embracing unity and love in my home.

  • children with each other relationship

Christians Most Effective Strategy

Courage and unity

Christians should learn to fight in unity against the devil. They should group up for war, fully armoured.

  • Unity causes courage to spread throughout the army of God.

  • Unity causes every soldier of God to be determined to stand and fight

  • unity causes the angels of God to come and stand together with the army of God. When angelic enforcement is there, it is definitely a sure way to victory.

  • Unity consequently turns despair to faith which pleases God who is provoked to give deliverance

  • Being united when we worship God makes the glory of God to come upon us and so we are surrounded all around by the glory of God. No enemy can withstand the glory of God.

  • When Christians reach the level of ' the unity of the brethren', the battle is won fast. Since the devil knows this fact, he fights the unity of brethren so that he can capitalize on divisions

Fight for Salvation

  • When we fight as Christians, let us fight for the sake of the kingdom of God, the truth, and the love for the lost

  • When we fight for salvation, let us fight against those evil spirits holding the lost captives and as we do that, the lost will be let loose, their eyes will be opened and they will eventually see the light and come towards the light having woken from the deception of the devil
