The Word


Dr. Daniel O. C. | Feb 15, 2024


Saints of God Most High, hear God’s word for you today:

“Use all the armour and weaponry that God provides so that you will be able to stand against the deceptive tactics of the adversary.” (Ephesians 6:11)

Put on God’s whole armour, the armour of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies, that you may be able successfully to stand up against all the strategies and the deceits of the devil.


Teach me, Lord, to keep sweet and gentle in all the events of life:

  • In disappointments; in thoughtlessness of others; in the insincerity of those I trusted; in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied.
  • Help me to put myself aside, to think of the happiness of others; to hide my little pains and heartaches, so that I may be the only one to suffer from them.
  • Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes to me. Help me to use it that it may mellow me, not harden or embitter me, that it may make me broad in my forgiveness, kindness, sympathy and helpfulness in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!

Life from the beginning has been in a state of war for all men internally, externally, spiritually and physically.

Satan knew what men would gain with the provision of God through Jesus hence the war from every angle towards the creation of men and women.

The place of men and women in the spiritual warfare has been very unique since the beginning of the world.

The warfare is not a physical warfare but a spiritual one. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

The agents of the devil and the satanic forces that are engaged in warfare against mankind are not just a thousand but numerous and legions.

Satan planned his strategy against the first family, Adam and Eve. He knocked down Eve but did not knock them out. The first Adam failed but the second Adam, Christ Jesus won the battle. (1 Corinthians 15:57 / 2 Corinthians 2:14)

Because of the failure, judgement of God came upon Adam and Eve and subsequently upon mankind and so the battle continues. But thanks be to God for His mercy shown on us.

He makes provision for victory over the adversary and strengthens our position in the warfare. Jesus our Saviour has beaten the devil under our feet and his head is also bruised.

Spiritual warfare from its inception to this time, though fought physically has been won through God’s help spiritually.

Beloved, up till this moment, spiritual warfare is what sustains all of us who are on the Lord’s side. Only the giants in the spirit can fight on to victory in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!


Somebody shout, “THANK YOU, JESUS!

Shalom and good morning.
Dr. Daniel O. C.
