WATCH: Practical Strategies to Defeat the Devil

by | Sep 25, 2014 | Spirit-Led Living

The key to winning your battles against Satan and his cohorts is the cross. Period. For too long, the body of Christ has been engaged in an unnecessary bloodbath with the powers of darkness. Question: Why are we spilling our blood, wrestling and struggling against the devil, when in fact the Son of God already shed His blood so that we could be victorious?

Is there a fight? Yes. But the strategy to winning is different from what we have long believed. Of course there are strategies and blueprints for spiritual warfare. There is also powerful revelation about strategic mapping and breaking atmospheres over cities to advance the gospel. I am grateful for all these methods—they are vital!  

What Kyle Winkler shares in his new book, Silence Satan, is not some new message that usurps any of the other key tactics to engaging warfare. Rather, his insights brings us back to the old rugged cross where our victory was secured. As the Son of God cried out, “It is finished,” He meant what He said. It’s time to start engaging spiritual warfare from an “It is finished” identity in Christ!

Make no mistake, there is a devil. There are demons. Their influence is very real, and they have one mission: “Steal, kill, destroy.” Unfortunately, much of the church has taken one of two incorrect approaches to their existence: 1) Either we completely ignore them, hoping that if we “pretend them away” long enough, they won’t bother us. As a result, we have constructed a theology where the cross not only defeated them but also disintegrated them. Incorrect. 2) The second perspective is another dangerous ditch—a fixation and preoccupation on the powers, strategies and tactics of darkness. We become more devil-minded than cross-minded.

With compassion and truth, Kyle helps bring much-needed balance to spiritual warfare. In this interview, he shares some practical strategies that will help you experience a life of sustained victory against the forces of darkness!
