The Weakness Of Satan and Christ’s Power Is Made Perfect in Weakness

Every Christian is in a battle that is fierce, spiritual, and necessary between the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to know the enemyhis personality, his strategies, his weaknesses. Satan´s weakness is; he can´t stand the Word of God because it´s sharper than two edged sword. Because he is the father of all lies he also hates the truth. An another weakness is his pride, an another weakness is he seeking what nature desire and have a selfish ambitions. Satan knows and recognized the weakness of the flesh and how he can deceive humans desire and lust, but he can´t see the strength of the spirit because he has not overcome his own weakness as Jesud did. Jesus transformed his fleshly weakness to a eternal life in the spirit of a man (born again). This process is described in the Holy Bible. He is the door/gate to this eternal life, he is the way, truth and life. They who follow him will not walk in darkness, and the truth will set you free, and fear not (God is with you) during this transforming process  from a earthly dimension to a new heavenly dimension of life. If you have trust and have faith in Christ he will guide you to a eternal life. Fear is hindering this human process from evolving and hindering humans from be born again and the ego´s is also producing fear and suffering. Fear also hindering new knowledge and spiritual growth and fear hindering weakness to be transformed to power, resources, trust, love and enlightment.

Satan was not defeated by the arbitrary exercise of God´s infinite power, but by weakness, by an ignoble death, covered in public disgrace. It would have been an easy thing for God to simply exercise His great power and destroy Satan. By defeating Satan through weakness, rather than by an exercise of His greater strength, the Father demonstrates that His wisdom is far higher and far deeper than that which can be imagined even by the greatest of created beings.

 

My power is strongest when you are weak.

Power is made perfect in weakness. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Christ’s Power Is Made Perfect in Weakness

‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’” In weakness? What the market wants is escape from weakness, not power in weakness. But to meet that felt need in the market the message must be distorted — and often is. Even in his “weakness” God is stronger than Satan’s mightiest power. We need to take the time to recognize our weaknesses and allow God to strengthen them. When we remain more committed to our weaknesses instead of God’s strength, then we also make ourselves vulnerable to Satan’s attacks.

Why is this meaning so important; ”Christ’s Power Is Made Perfect in Weakness”

The journey to a mind of Christ means to overcome our weakness, fears, anxieties, earthly and body manufactured desires that are controlling by the flesh, and when we allow this weakness to be stregnhten by God´s power they will transform. Weakness is a humble way to strengthen you with God´s power and knowledge. Matt 26:41 But the flesh is weak. The spirit is willing. The flesh conscoiuness is weak and the spirit conscoiuness is power. When humans are in this transforming process it means to live and challenge with this new vulnerable time, and during this transforming process Jesus says; ”Fear not”.

What will happen during this process is that Satan will attack on different ways and takes advantage of this new vulnerable transforming process by fear mongering with many differentg methods

Satan takes wind of a weak moment…that’s when the attack begins, as Satan’s aim is to keep these weak moments alive within us.

Satan attack only at the point of your self perceived weakness

2 Timothy 2:26 speaks of men in ”the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” Satan imprisons and enslaves his own subjects, but wars against the liberated saints.

Is Satan attacking you, you are either seriously close to getting on the right track with God or you are on the right track with Him and making a huge impact for Christ. Either situation makes you a threat to Satan´s agenda.

The devil is behind what is competing against your destiny. He is behind the challenges of life that are testing your abilities. You are a problem to the devil because of your kind of destiny. it is another deception of the devil to think you don’t have a destiny and therefore, the devil is not after you. You are not in this world by accident. Your mission on earth is your destiny and that is enough offence against the enemy. Some people wonder why the enemy attacks them as he does. They erroneously think living a simple, innocent life should not attract demonic attacks. They do not know they have a destiny to fulfill. Sometimes, such people known they have a great destiny to fulfill, but they don’t expect if should call for satanic attacks. You are getting it wrong, if you’ve been thinking this way. Your destiny is a threat to Satan.

WHY SATAN HATES YOUR DESTINY

Satan hates your destiny because its fulfillment glorifies God. ll you know your destiny and you’re pursuing it with all your energy, the devil will attack you with everything he can. because your destiny fulfillment enforces the will of God on earth as it is done in heaven.

Isaiah 43:7: Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory. I have formed him; yea, l have made him. Your destiny fulfillment reminds the devil of his defeat in heaven. Anytime he sees somebody fulfilling his destiny. he knows the will ef God is being done among men the same way His will is done in heaven. The first battle of the devil against the will of God failed. In the domain of men, he is continuing the battle lo forfeit God’s will in the lives of men. He however cannot succeed if you don´t let him. Your destiny fulfillment is a celebration of the power and dominion of God. The first celebration took place in heaven above among angels when the devil and his loyal angels were cast out.

The devil is a master strategist. He knows how to strike on target. When something is worthless or of no value, he waste no time attacking it. His main targets are human heings with glorious destinies. l am yet to see a single glorious destiny. that has been spared. Hence, people with bright prospects in life. are often under attack. More than 90 percent of talented, blessed and endowed men and women are facing all kinds of attacks today. Many people do not know what to do, when their destinies are under attack. Much more saddening is the fact that, many people do not know the type of prayer points to use, as weapons for wrestling their destinies from the hands of destiny hunters. Hopefully this text will challenge you to move your destiny from the valley to the mountaintop. l pray that God will visit you, as you go through.

SATAN HAS CAUSED SOME BELIEVERS to lower their standards and to place limitations on life by inuencing them to think, “My life will never get any better. ” This book was written to be your weapon of resources to Learn to stand against the Attacks of Satan. “The thief cometh not, but for ta steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I om come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 The word “abundance” means overowing, and whenever Satan knows that God has a blessing for you, he will attack and try to stop the blessings that are coming your way because he doesn‘t want to see you living in abundance and walking upright with the Lord, so he comes to steal your riches, kill your inheritance, and to destroy your faith in God, but remember that your greatest arsenal is to stand on the true word of God.

Why are Satan fear mongering and why are gangstalkers doing the same? Gangstalking is a fearmongering project to keep you in a state mind of fear. As long as Satan can keep you afraid, you will never enjoy the blessings that God has in store for you.

John 15:18-20

If the world hates you, know that is has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”

1 Peter 4:14

If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you.

If you are persecuted you are blessed. You are an agent for celebrating God’s power and dominion on earth. That is the reason satan recognizes that your destiny is something to attack as much as possible.

Luke 6:22

Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on aoccount of the Son of Man!

Matt 5:10

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

1 Peter 5:8-9, that satan walks around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour .

The enemy is walking around like a roaring lion seeking whom he will devour, sounding accusations and producing fear.

The devil as a roaring lion, will use fear to scare you. He wants you to feel insecure in Christ. But you must understand that you are hidden in Christ (Your true self)

Satan’s purpose is to weaken, discourage, and destroy the child of God. The devil wants you to live in fear and despair.

Satan recognized the weakness of the flesh without seeing the strength of the spirit.

Satan forms weapons of destruction, to try and destroy our relationship with God. He knows what our weak; points are, so he builds them up, to use them against us. In his mind, he isn’t out to wound us but to totally destroy us but when we remember the greatness of God; we also need to remember that these weapons of destruction cannot prospect…only if we allow them too. No matter how high the stormy waves appear before us, they can he destroyed and brought low, just by speaking the word “Jesus”. When we allow our fear of the waves to become greater than our trust and belief, in an all knowing, powerful God, then Satan uses more “thorns” to bring us to a lower place of despair.

God may allow Satan to begin his attacks but in the end, God has to be victorious. I can see it now ….Satan takes a forrn of weakness and throws the thorn of affliction our way, while he laughs in the face of God, thinking that he has won the battle; but then God comes along and takes the weakness and uses the weakness to produce something better, than what Satan first expected. It’s like a boomerang affect. Satan begins to throw a boomerang of affliction our way; but then God takes hold of the boomerang and uses it, and then he reveals himself as an ongoing victorious God, while the boomerang ends up back into the lap of Satan.

In II Corinthians 4:7-10, it reads…. ”But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the ecessency of the power many be of God, and not of us. We troubled on every side, yet not dsitressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair. Percecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about it in the body the dying of Lord Jesus, that the life also og Gesus might be made manifests in our body”.

Christ’s Power Is Made Perfect in Weakness

‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’” In weakness? What the market wants is escape from weakness, not power in weakness. But to meet that felt need in the market the message must be distorted — and often is. Even in his “weakness” God is stronger than Satan’s mightiest power. We need to take the time to recognize our weaknesses and allow God to strengthen them. When we remain more committed to our weaknesses instead of God’s strength, then we also make ourselves vulnerable to Satan’s attacks.

Satan may attack from every angle but as long as we are walking in God’s footsteps; the power that comes from evil remains weaker than God’s. These verses point out, that as Christians; we have this surety, that God’s power lives within us. We can become so taken in by the problem, that we forget who is greater than the problem. We can feel troubled but yet, when we walk in God’s footsteps, we aren’t in total despair. We may feel perseutecl by man; but yet God hasn’t forsaken us. We may feel as though everything that could go wrong has gone wrong; yet we aren´t destroyed. lt may seem at times, that we are always suffering for the cause of Christ; but it’s only because Christ is seen more clearly and more powerful through our weakness.

When we see God as something greater than our problems, then the darkness won’t seem its though it’s trying to to overcome us. Instead of allowing the darkness to pursue us; we need to pursue the mighty strength of God. In Psalm 23:3, it reeads….”He resroreth my soul: he ledeth me in the paths of righteouness for his name’s sake.” Even though darkness is rneant to take us away from God; this isn’t God’s desire for our loves. When we have the most powerful God living within us; nothing can overtake us; not even the darkness of the circumstance

Are we allowing God to use our weakness, so that we can be strenghtened, in a way that will cause us to turn away from tempeation? When satan is whispering in our ears and he´s reminding us of all our downfalls; are we still strong enough through God to resist the tempation? Satan can only feast on our weakness, so when we take our weakness and allow God to make them stronger through Him, then we experience more of God´s presence instead.

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9) Satan was not defeated by the arbitrary exercise of God’s infinite power, but by weakness,

Satans weakness

Now we get on to something useful in tangible manner. Satan has glaring weaknesses which in turn give Satan’s adversaries great strength. Satan’s demons are extraordinarily brilliant but are also extraordinarily stupid. If it were not so extraordinarily narcissistic and conceited, Satan would not reveal itself at all. Its pride overcomes its own intelligence, so that the demon of deceit is also a show-off. If it were thoroughly clever, it would leave its vio- ims long before things get really rough on it as a being.

It really desires to win and therefore foolishly sticks on to the bitter end. Satan is also blind in some areas. It has no understanding of the phenomenon of Love for it is soo extremely self-oriented. It recognizes love as a relity to be fought and even to be imitated, but utterly lacking in itself, it does not understand love in the least bit. The notion of true “sacrifice” is totally foreign to it–ones make sacrifices unto it and that is all it can understand. When humans respond to its presence in true love, it does not comprehend what is being said an is completely ignorant of any ground rules in loving behavior.

Satan´s deception, whispers, trickery, and diabolical plots can only be effective when human being display weakness. The only prevention is to lead a pious life without leeaving any gaps for Satan´s attacks. Satan himself admits this reality; Iblis said, ”My Lord! Because You have allowed me to rebel and go astray, I will indeed deck out to be appealing to them on the earth (the wordly, material dimension of human existence and the path of error), and I will surely cause them all to rebel and go astray, expet Your servants from among them, endowed with sincerity in faith and Your worshop” (Hijr 15:39-40).

The last phrase (except you servants…) revels Satans weakness. In his deceotion, he gives the characteristics of those who cannot be deceoved. Indeed, satan will not find the opportunity to attack those who have no free time for worldy pleeasures and decorated desires.

Satan was expecting God to challenge and fight him from a position of strength—but Jesus was crucified in weakness, and he overcome all this fleshly weakness and win the everlasting victory; life. He overcome all fear mongering, overcome fleshly desires like hunger in the desert, mockering, slandering, pain, horror, persecution.

Satan was defeated by his own weakness by God´s infinite power. By exposing Satan´s methods and how he is working the spirit of God will overcome the fleshly and wartlhy life and get a eternal life.

Satan was not defeated by the arbitrary exercise of God´s infinite power, but by weakness, by an ignoble death, covered in public disgrace. It would have been an easy thing for God to simply exercise His great power and destroy Satan. By defeating Satan through weakness, rather than by an exercise of His greater strength, the Father demonstrates that His wisdom is far higher and far deeper than that which can be imagined even by the greatest of created beings.

Satan wanted to pollute the seed, he had no intention of being Jesus’ friend, he just wanted to separate the Son from the Father. He began by attacking Jesus’ most pressing human weakness.

This is spiritual logic; Strength will be made perfect in our weakness, because he hath promised it.

Satan’s greatest weakness is his very nature: he is finite, but God is eternal. Satan is limited by time and space—his very nature ensures that he can never be like God.

2 Corinthians 11:13–15 Satan’s typical devices are to deceive, to masquerade as an angel of light. Satan and his servants

Your spirit is your strength

“Your spirit is your strength, your help in distress. You may be shaken, but you will nevcr fall. The waters  around you may rage, but you will have a strong foundation.  The spring of life will bring forth streams of gold. Your spirit is in the midst of that zenith and will never be shaken. Even though the world is full of suffering, you do not have to be a part of that. Your fundation shall be strong and your spirit shall stand with you.”

When humans are evolving Jesus says fear not all the time, and this is the concept to overcome the fleshly body and be born again in the spirit and get eternal Life.

Jesus, the doorway and the nous

Jesus talkes about a doorway  or “the nous” in Luke 24:45

Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.”

John 10:9

Truly, truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep.

John 10:9

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture,

Philippians 4:7-9

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ 

The amygdala is the heart chakra of the brain, and amydala comes from Mary Magdalene

When it starts open the whole brain starts to become healed.

There is a interesting connection to do between Mary Magdalene and Jeremiah 31:22 – A Woman will encompass a man.

Man is proved to be a three dimensional creature by physiology; and woman is the fourth dimension, by the same means of proof. Woman may be represented by the square (four lines) . Man may be represented by the triangle (three lines).

It is portal or entrance to the femine qualities in right brain (4 dimensional)

The amygdala (Mary Magdalene) is part of the portal to the feminine entrance to the third eye, found att the back of the brain. When it opens, the third eye starts to open up slowly and softly. The amygdala is the heart of the brain. When it opens, the whole brain starts to become healed, as light and love radiates from the amygdala to the other brain centers.

There must be a door, gate, portal between a 3 dimensional world view and up to a 4 dimensional world view. And this  door or gate is what separate the earthly world from the heavenly world.

If the amygdala is affected by fear it can´t open this doorway or gate. If the amygdala is unhealed an affected by a fear-based culture or consciouness it cant support the pineal gland (third eye to open). If the brain or mind is trapped in duality and not a healed oneness these mind doors can´t be open.

Jesus says:

Isaiah 41:10

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

 John 14:27

“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.”

2 Timothy 1:7

  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

1 John 4:18

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

Isaiah 43:1

“But now, this is what the Lord says…Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

Joshua 1:9

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Psalm 91:1-16

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”…He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you…For he will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways…“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him…”

In peoples weakness Satan stalking or gangstalking

SATAN ATTACKS OUR POINT OF WEAKNESS Satan will use family friends, co-workers, brother and sisters, strangers,  employees, everyone, everybody and whenever 24/7

During times of weakness, our vision is not always clear, and we find ourselves vulnerable …

Because Satan is the opposite of God, he uses moments of vulnerability and weakness to make usevenweaker.

Satan places the bait in front of us. The bait will always be our area of weakness. Satan is not going to go after your strengths, he will place in front of you, the temptation that will get your attention, and with time, weaken your resolve.

However, in times of weakness Satan finds ways to wear down our mind.

Wherever he sees a weakness, Satan tries to exert influence and exploit that weakness for control.

No matter how strong you might be, any weakness Satan will find. He uses that weakness to show your fears lying deep within your mind (he is trying to keep your fears alive within you or wake them up so he can control you by fear and using scare mongering tactics). Satan want´s you to be scared of him.

Satan will use the circumstances in our lives to take us away from God

When we think that we can do things on our own, then we start to show weakness. Satan will pray on this weakness. He is the father of lies and deception. When we show weakness, we give Satan an open door into our lives.

Satan´s power may try to keep us overwhelmed and blinded,  that we forget that we are already overcomer´s through Christ.

“It is finished” The last mortal words of Christ on earth were, “It is finished” (John 19:30). Christ did not merely mean that the atonement for humanity was finished. For if only the atonement for humanity was “finished” through the cross, then God would still have more work

And you shall be labeled as wise! As gods! Many of the ignorant shall turn to you for help. Certainly, you may guide them, but ultimately, it is they who must walk the path as you. As always, your responsibility lies first to yourself‘! You have chosen the hard path of self‘-knowledge. You have chosen to see through their agendas of‘ control, fear and guilt. You have understood the price of such a path, but you have stayed with it none the less. Lonliness is often the price of freedom, but would you return to ignorance? Would you return to the hell upon this Earth that they are soon to experience? You have been called ‘evil‘, for that which they do not understand is darkness to them. For lifetimes, you have been condemned, ridiculed, ostracized, excommunicated, demonized and murdered for your ‘sin’ of knowledge! You, who have been labeled as the hordes of darkness are the true armies of light!‘ You have cast aside your masks of conformity, have looked within yourselves, have analyzed all the parts of your beings and have embraced your true-selves. You deny not that which you truly are. For you are my children, and you shall rule this Age!

We need to take time to recognoze our weakness and allow God to strengthem them. When we reamin mor comiited tou our weakness instead of God´s strenght, then we also make ourselves vulnerable to satan´s attacks.

We must embrace suffering in our minds, that is, be willing to suffer and be partakers of Christ’s suffering, in doing so we learn to resist temptation to sin as we become empowered by God in our weakness. In our weakness we become strong.

 

  1. In peoples weakness Satan stalking and persecute and then exclude people and then even imprisons his own subjects
  2. Satan’s agenda needs unity by exclusion to block God’s plan for relationships and reconciliation.
  3. Oppression and social ostracism are key elements of Satan’s house as seen in the man whom the devil made bind and mute. Satan’s desire for man is to be ostracized as he was and to ultimately be banished as he is going to be.
  4. 2 Timothy 2:26 speaks of men in ”the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” Satan imprisons and enslaves his own subjects, but wars against the liberated saints.
  5. You have been called ‘evil’, for that which they do not understand is darkness to them. For lifetimes, you have been condemned, ridiculed, ostracized, excommunicated, demonized.
  6. Satan wants to attack God’s people though oppression and persecution and, ultimately, to eliminate us from the face of earth

 

Blessings. The term “blessing” has two basic meanings in biblical contexts. In one meaning it is a form of prayer of adoration and praise of God, “Blessed be the Lord.” Such prayers recognize God’s power and his incli- nation to make his power available to his people in blessings. Blessing bestowed by or requested from God is the second meaning of the ICITI1. Blessing in this sense is an ex- tension of sacred presence into the world through the transfer of God’s beneficent power to enhance. “bless.” The object or being that is the recipient of the blessing.

Titus 3:8 There is a blessing upon the obedient ones who maintain good works. Rarely are good works … God is raising you up to be a powerful blessing to others as you let the love of Jesus shine through your works.

We need the Holy Spirit’s blessing

“Since the Holy Spirit lives with in us, sealing us unto eternity this means He will never leave us, and nothing else can
