In the arsenal of a Christian there are ‘weapons of warfare’ allotted for those believers engaging the devil and his armies. We speak of powerful weapons within our specific militaries; however, in the Army of the Lord Jesus what are the ‘Powerful forces’ allotted to us? When we think of the Power of God as Jesus promised us in Acts chapter one, verse 8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you” (KJV) we think about the endowment of power bestowed upon armies.
In the Christian army there are several things identified as ‘Powerful forces’. When the Apostle Paul was dressing the Christian in Ephesians Chapter 6, he identified the dress wear of the Elect. He identified ‘The Sword of the Spirit’ as the chief weapon of the believer; however, the description of the believer is only symbolic of the many weapons imparted to the Christian. In II Corinthians chapter 10, verse 4 the Apostle Paul says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds” (KJV).
The many weapons of the believer are described in the excerpts from Bro Branham below.
“The mightiest force there is on earth is love. That’s exactly. There’s nothing that will break down love. No matter what it is” (Do You Now Believe, June 10, 1955, Para 26).
“It’s the most powerful force that God ever put in the hands of man, is a sincere prayer offered to God” (The Angel Of The Lord, June 4, 1953, Para 20).
“By this sixth sense mighty miracles has been performed. It’s the most powerful force that ever hit the earth, is that super sense, called the sixth sense” (A Super Sense, December 27, 1959, Para 159).
“The greatest weapon that I know of of a Christian today, is a committal to God”(Life Story, July 22, 1951, Para 9).
“And brother, this is God’s Word, which is sharper than a two-edged sword. It’s the greatest power that was ever put in the hands of man” (God Keeps His Word, Part 2, March 7, 1957, Para 46).
“God equipped His children with the right kind of ammunition, right kind of an attack, the right kind of everything that they had need of, that would sweep them all the way from Eden to the Rapture. What was it? The Word. The Word . That’s what defeats Satan, is the Word. It’ll defeat him anywhere, any place. Now, why do we want to substitute something else, when we’ve already got the best thing that there is, the Word? (The Conflict Between God And Satan, May 31, 1962, Para 60).
The only thing we must realize about our enemy is he has been defeated by ‘The Mighty Conquer’ and he has no ability within himself to defeat us except for one thing…to make us doubt what Almighty God has given us.
“And what is Satan’s weapon against you? Is to try to get you to disbelieve your Weapon. He disarms you. Let’s–let’s listen real quiet now. Listen. If he can get you to disbelieve your Weapon is equivalent, if he gets you to believe that your Weapon is not strong enough, he has disarmed you” (The Greatest Battle Ever Fought, March 11, 1962, Para 400).
