Read Romans 8:26-27 from your Bible
We can’t see those controlling forces. They are spirits. So the Holy Ghost now helps our inadequacies in communicating to God on the need of the hour – those motions in your mind, those motions in your body, that need to be dealt with.
We are mortally helpless. But with the help of the Holy Spirit (as we begin to operate the law of the Spirit by making intercessions in the spirit), we are able to disarm the law of sin and death.
We don’t know how to pray as we ought to “We know not what”, but we have the help of the Spirit, to locate what, disarm what and subdue what.
Read Romans 8:27 from your Bible
When you pray according to the will of God, He hears you. So the Holy Spirit helps you to come on the frequency of the will of God, so you can always secure victory.
Read Romans 8:13 from your Bible
The Spirit has power to mortify the deeds of the flesh. When they are mortified, the battle is over!
Read Galatians 5:16-17 from your Bible
To walk in the Spirit means to operate in the Spirit, to engage the Holy Spirit in your earthly walk – to take advantage of His ministry against the works of the flesh.
The spirit is contrary to the flesh, so when you engage the Holy Spirit, you subdue the flesh.
The flesh is contrary to the spirit, it will disarm the spirit if you don’t engage the Holy Spirit.
The Bible says, “When a strongman armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.” But when a stronger man comes upon him, he disarms him and carries his goods away (Luke 11:21-22).
So it takes a stronger Spirit to disarm the weaker spirit.
But read 1 John 4:4 from your Bible
When you engage the Holy Spirit in keeping your spiritual goods (your spiritual destiny in God), your goods will be in safety.
The Holy Spirit is the force that guarantees your security in the conflicts of life. Therefore, you must be filled with the Spirit. Don’t be empty! (Ephesians 5:18)
Jesus was so filled with the Spirit that the flesh had no hold on Him (Luke 4:1-13).
“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)
That means the Holy Spirit has power to put fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, etc, to death.
All that are listed above can be put to death by the Spirit, if you engage the Spirit. Not through tears or cries, no! But “through the Spirit.”
Engage the Spirit. Get into cloud-forming prayers (like Elijah did) in the Spirit.
You know what Paul said in Ephesians 6:18?
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”
So you can put these things to death, whether they be habits formed over a long period of time, or controls from hell. You can through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the flesh.
Do you want to put iniquity far from you? Here is the answer to iniquity, here is the answer to the sin question – the manifestation, the operation, the engagement of the Spirit of God in warfare. Then, sin will Loose it’s grip on you, and life will lay hold on you, and your life will take on a new meaning altogether!
“I indeed baptise you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptise you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”
Read Matthew 3:11-12 from your Bible
When you begin to engage the Holy Spirit in warfare against the flesh, a wind begins to blow, gathering the chaff and binding them up, setting them on unquenchable fire.
That’s a mystery!
The fire of the Holy Ghost establishes God’s judgement against the forces of evil.
Because the prince of this world is judged (John 16:11), the judgment of the devil is now in the hands of the Holy Ghost. So when you engage the Spirit, you devastate all the forces of hell that are arrayed against your destiny.
The spirit of this world is judged!
The spirit of arrogance is judged!
The lying spirit is judged!
How? By the fire of the Holy Ghost! Because He will gather the chaff, and burn it with unquenchable fire! He will destroy and bring judgement on them!
That motion of the flesh can be consumed. All you need is get set to engage the Spirit, and you will devastate the work of the flesh.
