KEY SCRIPTURE2Ki 6:23 KJV “And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria came no more into the land of Israel”.
The king of Syria realized each time he plans to attack the people of Israel, they get to know his plans and prepare for him. He wondered who among them was on the side of the Israelites? (2 kings 6:7-10) In the plan of God Satan should never outwit the people of God. Through the gifts of the Holy Spirit the people of God, must consistently know the next action of the enemy and take steps to overcome them. The king of Syria decided to attack the prophet of God and eliminate him. When they came to attack him (Elisha), was not worried or afraid. He said 2Ki 6:16 KJV” And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. “Dear child of God, do not ever be moved by what Satan throws against you. Greater is he who is with you than the devil who has come against you.
The man of God asked God to make the armies of Syria that had come against him to be blind. God smote all these men with blindness. If God could do for Elisha, a man under the old covenant, how much wont He do for us. Church of God arise out of every unbelief and take your proper place, and by faith stop the enemy. Elisha led them to the king of Israel, and caused their sight to return to them. The king asked, should, I smite them. Elisha answered, no. He rather set a table before them and fed these enemies of his. Why is there so much fear and hatred for the enemy? Most Christians don’t know who they are. By grace we are far superior and far above every devil. You cannot overcome the man that you are afraid of.
There are many Christians, who literally hate their enemies(humans) because they are afraid of them. This is a sign of failure and defeat. You can’t overcome the man you fear. We hate the devil and we deal with the devil. We do not hate humans, yet those who become party to demons will go down with them. We must love all humans, knowing our superiority over the devil. Our wrestle is not against flesh and blood, but against devils and invisible beings. Deal with these beings and the humans who want to be one with the devil will go down with the devil. Free yourself from the fear and hatred of any man. Know the authority you have and exercise it over the devil.
I have love for all men. I do not hate, nor fear any man. I have authority over the devil and exercise this authority over them.
1 John 4:18 KJV “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
1 John 4:20 KJV “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”
