#8 Silence the devil’s rage against you
Verse 30: Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, shall be praised.
Satan targeted the woman in the Garden of Eden and he continues to target women in this present day. The devil’s agenda for women is to make them a gateway for evil, to disgrace them, to downgrade them and to destroy them. The devil has a special interest in women because women are God’s special creation as she was fashioned after God breathed into man’s nostrils.
In God’s plan for redemption, the seed of the woman is to bruise the head of the serpent so a woman is not meant to be friends with the devil. God placed enmity between them but in recent times this enmity has been cleverly diluted and women are now making friends with the enemy. Many women are consciously and unconsciously led into what they know nothing about and many are falling into the tragedy of making friends with their number one enemy the devil.
The devil’s rage against women is narrated fully in Revelations 12: 13-14 which says “When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach”.
The devil’s fury and determination against the woman is further depicted in Revelations 12: 15-17 “Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus”.
Before the arrival of Jesus Christ, women were not allowed in the affairs of God. It was the ministry of Jesus that brought women into the affairs of God. It is unfortunate that though many women are born, they never actually wake up to locate their real selves and possess their possessions. Those who determine to fulfil their destiny however, are faced with a rage from the bottom of hell fire which manifests in various spiritual problems.
- Familiar spirits that form conscious or unconscious associations with you and prevent you from achieving your destiny
- Spirit husbands and wives that hold women and their marriages captive
- Anti marriage spirit
- Jezebel spirit
- Evil pattern
- Womb problems
- Spirit of rejection
- Evil covenants
- Bad health
- Bad, acidic and violent tongue
- Bad marital foundation
- Demonic in-laws
- Demonic marks that attract evil invasion
- Husbands attached to their mothers
- Pollution of children
- Sexual perversion
- Jealousy and envy
To be set free from these spiritual problems, every woman needs to make friends with Jesus. She needs to ask him to show her a picture of her real self and to tell her the secret of her life. It is at this point her deliverance will take place because Jesus will reveal to her the things she needs to overcome.
After understanding there is a problem, with courage she must take steps to silence the rage of the enemy over her life through the force of deliverance fire prayers. To walk in freedom and be empowered to prosper, every woman is advised to continually barricade her life with holiness and the blood of Jesus so that the enemy will be kept at bay.
