Removing and Breaking Demonic Strongholds Strongman – Part 3
When one of the goods or underlings is manifesting such as self-pity, then the kingdom of self is being promoted and not the kingdom of God. You are introspecting. Self-pity is a feeling of sorrow (often self-indulgent) over your own sufferings in the past or in the present. It is self exalting your problems. It is time for breaking demonic strongholds.
How can you get past your past pain when in self-pity? You cannot when you are manifesting self-pity. It is people who habitually indulge in self-pity–it’s “injustice collector.” These are the folks who are constantly dwelling on their hurts and hardships–whether real or imagined–and they enjoy thinking about them and talking about them. That is why it is the kingdom of self. A person in self-pity is keeping a record of wrong. God’s way instructs us to walk in the God kind of love, which is “not self-seeking,” and which “keeps no record of wrongs.”
Pulling Down and Breaking Demonic Strongholds
That is why it is very important to repent, pull down the thought that is not of love or have it cast out otherwise, if it stays and becomes habitual, then it is a stronghold. That person is in habitual self-pity and cannot seem to get free.
breaking demonic strongholds spiritually
So, when you act out in anger then you are in sin. When you feel rejected it is a sin. When you are in fear it is a sin and sin is a being. When you look at 2 Timothy 1:7 it says For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. So, we see that fear is a spirit. A spirit that is opposite of God are demons that influence us.
Breaking Demonic Strongholds by Renewing the Mind
Any sin will lead to a stronghold (spiritual bondage) if not dealt with. That is what Jesus did on the cross for us was give us a way to deal with our sin. In the old testament, they had to wait an entire year, do sacrifices on animals for blood to cover sin. It was not forgotten like what Jesus did for us on the cross when we repent and it is forgiven and forgotten.
Recognizing Demonic Strongholds
Once a stronghold is established, the enemy influences us in our attitudes and actions, and also distorts our perception of God, other people and situations, causing us to misperceive situations to the detriment of relationships.
