Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – part 62

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 19:43

Scripture:

Ps. 18:37-38
37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

You are called to pursue the evil spirits.

The attitude against evil spirits varies a lot among the believers. There are those who choose to shut their eyes, and don’t want to see the evil spirits, and there are those who try to hide from them. There are also believers who are aware of the evil spirits and use their authority against the evil spirits coming against them. But now when we talk about pursuing the spirits and looking for them, it’s easy to regard that as fanatic ghost hunting. Let’s immediately state that if you “hunt demons” because it’s exciting, then it’s time to calm down and get a sound view on spiritual warfare.

Why should we go looking for evil spirits in order to stop them, instead of just defending ourselves when they attack?

Let’s have a look at a two scriptures:

1 John 3:8
… For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

John 20:21
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. When he was raised from the dead, and he met the disciples, he said that they were to go and do the same. Jesus had a mission, and he has given the same mission to us. The difference is that our mission is based on the victory that Jesus has already won.

Jesus came to set people free, not to defend himself. We have the same mission. We cannot focus on just defending ourselves. Our mission is to destroy the works of the enemy wherever we find them.

Finally, let’s have a look at Ps. 8:2

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

God wants to use His children to still, that is to conquer, His enemies.
