Strongholds are faulty belief systems which impact our thinking, feeling, and doing. The weapons of our warfare are mighty in tearing down strongholds and everything that stands against the true knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:4).
Stronghold Busters are a way of dealing with lies you have believed which created bondage in your life. The goal is to identify the lie and the effect it has had on your life, then finding what God's Word says and begin to replace the lie with His truth. Remember.... Jesus said, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free". Stonghold Busters should be read outloud every day for 40 days and every time you are tempted to fall back onto the old beliefs until the lie is broken. It took a while to develop your response to the lie and it takes a while to reprogram your thinking to go to the truth.
Confidential Personal Inventory
The Confidential Personal Inventory (CPI) is a review of your life history and events which may have shaped the issues you face today. The CPI is typically used to prepare for a Personal Steps to Freedom in Christ Appointment. Your Encourager may request for you to complete this form and send it to them several days prior to your appointment.
Declarations of Truth
Jesus said, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free!"
The majority of the spiritual battle we all face is taking place in the mind and it is a battle for truth. Knowing and believing (faith) the truth of who we are in Christ and the character of our Father God is essential. We are told in the letter to the Ephesians that the one offensive spiritual weapon we have is the word of God (Eph. 6:27). The Greek word used here is rhema, which means "that which is or has been uttered by the living voice, thing spoken, word." Our words by themselves dont carry much weight in defeating the evil spiritual realm, but when we speak God's words as revealed in the Bible, it is powerful.
This is a collection of scripturally based truths which should be read outloud (declared) regulary to help in the transformation of our mind (Rom. 12:2) and combat against the evil spiritual forces attempting to influence our thinking. Demons cannot read you mind so speaking these outloud are much more effective just as Jesus did when tempted in the wilderness.
Recognizing New Age Deception
Remember, Ignorance Doesnt Cancel the Effects...
When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 18:9-13
I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he? 1 Cor. 10:20b-22
