This is a three part series of the end time battle of the believer of Jesus Christ, against the forces of darkness. I never believed in my wildest dreams that a topic I treated during my college days would come in handy in my spiritual battle with evil; SWOT analysis is one of the many topics covered in marketing planning. It is an audit tool used to evaluate a company for strategic repositioning. In the battle with Satan and his evil angels, you sincerely need to conduct a SWOT analysis on yourself; what is your Strength, your Weaknesses, the Opportunities available to you and what are the Threats? This audit of yourself will tell you if you can directly confront the devil and his agents. The reason many ministers of the gospel avoid meddling with deliverance ministration is because they are in most cases not sure of their spiritual standing in the Kingdom of God. A man maybe anointed but lack the spiritual willpower to exercise the empowerment Jesus Christ gave to him: for this reason many Churches fed their members only with words that lack the power to bring about change in their lives. The devil knows it and therefore, hardly troubles those churches, because they are not a treat to his kingdom.
The first write up on this topic looked at dreams as one of the gateway in which the devil uses his agents to attack an individual; be it Christian or otherwise. In this concluding part of the topic, I shall take you through foundational demonic attacks. Every human being on earth came out of a family tree that was started by one man. As the tree spread, it developed its own branches, while some branches bore fruits others were not so fortunate. As those fruits ripened and some fell to the ground,while the birds of the air carried some to distant places; replicas of this tree are soon found growing all over the place. Such is the story of man! Every family on earth has a foundation ( beginning) somewhere. Most families have an idolatry foundation, either the founder of that lineage carried out inherited rituals passed on by his ancestors or decides to chart a new cause by engaging spirits that are assumed to be more powerful than that of his ancestors’! These demons worshiped in the form of gods are given a pride of place in the family to protect, prosper, heal, fight and deliver that lineage. In return, sacrifices, oblation and rituals celebrations of that clan or community will hold in their honour yearly; either as harvest festivals or fertility celebrations.
