REVELATION 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Words are more important than most people realize. Words carry spiritual power, to produce life or death (Proverbs 18:21). Every authority is exercised through words. When it comes to overcoming your adversary, the devil, and all his tactics, you must speak words of faith in line with the Bible. What Jesus did for you is enough. He defeated the devil for you. However, you must enforce that defeat by speaking and standing in agreement with God. Only then will you see Jesus’ victory manifest in your life. The only offensive weapon of spiritual warfare you have is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;” A sword is a weapon. God’s Word is not a weapon when it is on your book shelf or on your coffee table. It only becomes a spiritual weapon when you speak it in faith. Your spiritual weapon is speaking the Word of God. You must take the Word and speak it in faith, just like Jesus did. Jesus already defeated the devil for you, and gave you the victory (Colossians 2:15). You must enforce that victory over the devil through spoken words!
