God the Son, Jesus Christ, answers our enemy the devil
with, "It is written." We should answer that way also!
And where...is it written? In the Bible, the Sword of the
Spirit, the "Word of God."
And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of
Satan; and was with wild beasts; and the angels ministered
But he answered and said, It is written, "Man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God.
Immediate after you pray and/or fast expect to be tempted.
For our battle is not against flesh and blood (people, places
or things you can see), but against the invisible spiritual
wickedness in high places (the heavens).
Believers have assigned angel(s) to carrying out
prayer request in addition to demon(s) which delay
or hinder prayers.
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their
synogogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom
and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of
disease among the people.
I hope that does not sound easy, because it is not!
We are in a battle, an on earth fight in receiving
our prayers answered from heaven, but be of good
cheer Jesus has overcome the world.
We have Christ in us -- the hope of glory!
Our armour consist of prayer, faith in believing that
we have what we ask for, and endurance to stand until
we receive our answer.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall
ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst
after righteousness for they shall be filled.
Our righteousness is in Christ, and Christ has fulfilled
the law; therefore, we are entitled to treasures from heaven
here on earth.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.
...for battle against the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Defeated by God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and
God the Holy Spirit -- done deal!
