Knowledge of the realm of the spirit around you is essential. Did you know Jesus taught more about demons than he did about angels? If fact, after Jesus called his Disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out (Matthew 10:1). Sometimes we forget the anointing does more than bless, it also confronts spiritual opposition. It breaks the yoke and removes the burden. The anointing confronts any demonic activity that is contrary to the Word of God and His promises for your life.
Demons are spirits that rebelled against God. They can’t attack God so they attack his creation. This is why it’s important to understand spiritual authority. You have an enemy. Demons are destroyers of God’s purpose for your life. Ignoring them won’t stop their plans for destruction, and ignorance makes things worse because demons take advantage of your lack of knowledge. God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Apostle Paul taught the members of his church about the wiles of the devil. He wrote, “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11). Paul understood the importance of putting on the whole armor of God. Armor is for the fighting believer. It’s for those that understand their delegated spiritual authority to challenge demonic strategies.
Evil spirits use wedge weapons to separate you from God’s Word, other Disciples, and faithful Christian service. A wedge is a piece of material, such as metal or wood, thick at one edge and tapered to a thin edge at the other for insertion in a narrow crevice, used for splitting, tightening, securing, or levering. You have probably seen someone use a metal wedge when cutting logs.
