Today, let’s take a look at the 6th Poverty Stronghold – Agreements with the Enemy
Imagine this, on one side of you is God and he is saying all manner of life and blessing over you.
I have for you a future and a hope
I have known you since before time
I am with you always
I created you and called you good
In me (Christ) there is no condemnation
I have special work for you
And then, on the other side of you is Satan and he is saying all manner of death and destruction over you.
He comes only to lie and steal
He brings chaos
Death is his specialty
Despair is his voice
He accuses you
He is the tempter
And you are between the two.
The Bible speaks numerous times about the need for a second witness. Throughout historical times all matters of law had to be decided on the basis of two witnesses for instance. And Jesus himself asserted that where two or more are gathered in his name that he is among them.
And so, as we have God on one hand and Satan on the other, each speaking over us, we are the ones deciding with whom we will agree, we create the second witness.
And what we agree with is what is established in our lives.
