There are ten weapons of spiritual warfare revealed to us in the scripture to fight and overcome spiritual wickedness of demons,witchcraft and satanic agents. These are; the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, the cross of Christ,,the word of God, Holy communion, praise, preaching, giving, prayer and fasting. A born again Spirit filled believer that understand the power in these activities will live in victory to fulfill destiny.

In this article I will talk on fasting which is mostly underrated and misunderstood. It has tremendous benefits. Many Christians are suffering unjustly and it is because of lack of knowledge Hosea4:6. In Matt17:21 Jesus says" Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting". He told His desciples that they couldn't heal the epileptic boy because of their unbelief and He added that their faith could be strengthened by fasting. God honours true fasting because it's an affliction of the soul to allow us bypass the influence of the flesh so that our spirit man can have perfect link with God who is also Spirit. Fasting enable us commit our needs and cares to God alone who knows how to solve the matter easily. We are open to His mercy and power in proper fasting period I Pet5:7

Isa58:6-11 gives us several benefits of fasting thus "Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burden and to let the oppressed go free and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked,that thou cover him,and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shalt thy light break forth as the morning and thine health shalt spring forth speedily and thy righteousness shalt go before thee,the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward. Then shall thou call and the Lord shall answer, thou shall cry and He shall say here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke,the putting forth of the finger and speaking vanity. And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul then shall thy lights rise in obscurity and thy darkness be as the noonday, and the Lord shall guide thee continually and satisfy thy soul in drought and make fat thy bones,and thou shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not"

So much of tremendous benefit oozes out of fasted lifestyle. The root of most of our battles are spiritual and we can only deal with them spiritually. Several hindrances and delays we observe in life are spiritual opposition and fasting takes us into the realm of the spirit to understand what is really wrong and utilize spiritual weapons from the heavenlies to scatter those forces.Many families are under heavy weight of demons because of sins,idolatry and evil covenants. If we do not stand up to say enough of poverty, affliction, death, diseases and all the calamities,we may be live a miserable life all through because most of those evil powers are stubborn and difficult to uproot, some have lived as familiar spirits for millions of years with us.

When you encounter problems that normal prayer, rebuking, praise and worship, seed sowing, word confession and anointing oil cannot solve my friend go into fasting and night prayer. Jesus Christ fasted forty days and night .matt4:1-2,Esther called for fasting to save the Jews from death Esther 4:16, Daniel fasted for 21 days to encounter supernatural intervention Dan9-10,Moses and Elijah fasted for forty days (Exo34:28,Deut9:9,18,I Kings19:8) Proper fasting trains our spirit and break us to be humble and obedient to God. Jesus prayed mostly in the nights Luke6:12 and that's very significant. There are several areas where our battles are located some in the blood, mind,soul realm,our spirit and in the sub conscious. In all we need God who knows where the problem is to deliver us. One of the major ministry of Jesus is deliverance Luke4;18. It's only the stronger than the strong man fighting us that can do the work for us Luke11:21-22. It's brokenness that will help us not to love the world I Jhn2:14-16 nor walk in the flesh Gal5:19-21 and these feats can only be achieved through fasting. I have witnessed so many vibrant Christians die in accidents,sickness, witchcraft affliction, poverty, wretchedness, spiritual bondage and captivity but most of these are avoidable.Many are because of lack of knowledge Hosea4:6

Many people will start experiencing troubles in their bodies, finances,home, job and all over their lives the moment fasting is recommended to them because those demons working on them knows they will be free of their hold so they start causing troubles. If we can be disciplined to fast our progress and breakthrough will be evident before all

Wish you a wonderful 2022 in Jesus name. Amen
