Who is this DESTROYER, and how can we destroy this DESTROYER…?
As children of God let us not run from this truth that we have an enemy or enemies because our Father in HEAVEN -God Himself has an enemy which is the Devil and his counterparts.
By this reason we also have enemies. The book Psalm 68:1 says “Let GOD arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee from Him”(NKJV). Micah 7:6 also says: “…A man’s enemies are the men of His own household”. Yeah, this is so amazing and surprising. Exodus 15:3 also states the true nature of our God which says “He is a man of war…” meaning as His children we are also for war, so I ask whom are we at war with – definitely our enemies and what should be our target or aim; just to destroy Him in order for him not to do likewise. “For the thief does not come except to steal, and to kill and to destroy…” John 10:10(NKJV).
And this is the mission of the enemy to your life as a christian and a child of God.
Beloved, Christians today lead all sort of lifestyles contrary to the word of God and still claim to have power over the enemy which is very sad. With these same lifestyles we still expect His blessings. Sin is the only thing which can make the enemy get advantage over us moreover, finding his way to harm us as children of God being his target and prey.
If so, then why don’t we separate ourselves from those things that gives him more power over us.
Whenever we sin as children of God, we give the devil an inch to break into our boundaries in order to destroy us and so do we also make God hide His face from us hence, ceasing His blessings. But there is hope for us that when we come back to him after we have sinned against God because we are His children. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1.John 1:9 NKJV). Meaning, God is so merciful to take us back to our former position that we have in Him as His own children if only we realize our mistakes and plead with Him for forgiveness.
In conclusion, we can only destroy the destroyer by separating ourselves from any thing which is contrary to the word of God then we take a good stand or be in a better position to destroy the destroyer.
MAY GOD HELP US AND STRENGTHEN US TO DESTROY THE DESTROYER….AMEN!!
