Spiritual weapons: Our confession

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 20:55

Our confession is a spiritual weapon.

What do we mean by ‘our confession’?

With our confession we mean what we speak, in the sense of speaking what is right. A better way to put it would be ‘our right confession’.

Are there scriptures that prove that what we speak can be a weapon against the enemy?

Yes, there are several scriptures that prove that God wants to use our mouth as a weapon against the enemy.

Rev. 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony …

We have previously talked about the blood of Jesus being a spiritual weapon. Rev. 12:11 shows us that the combination of the blood of Jesus, and words that we speak, conquers the enemy.

Ps. 8:2 is another scripture that talks about the importance of using our mouth in the battle against the enemy.

Ps. 8:2
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

Should we speak only scriptures against the enemy?

Eph. 6:17
And take … the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God

The Word of God functions as a spiritual sword, and we should use it. We should quote scriptures when the Holy Spirit leads us, and so it is good to memorize scriptures that the Holy Spirit can remind us of in various situations. But, we should not just speak scriptures. We should also speak commands against the enemy.

Most preachers emphasize that Jesus used scriptures when He was tempted by the devil in the desert. However, Jesus also commanded the devil to leave. When Jesus quoted scriptures, the devil did not leave, but when He said: ‘Away with you, Satan!” he left immediately.

Matt 4:10
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! …

What about witnessing? Is that a weapon?

When we tell people what Jesus has done for us, it is a chance for them to open up and let Jesus into their lives. That means, witnessing is an attack against the kingdom of darkness, and so it can be seen as a spiritual weapon.
