Lhis is now a classic hisLory book oí Lhc lasL dccadc and scason oí war. AL Lhc

You are great and greatly to be praised. I worship You and adore You.
(Continue to worship God, and thank Him for health, strength, etc.)
I thank You, Father, for clothing me in a robe of righteousness, which
covers me because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. It is in Him I live
and move and have my being (Ps. 100:4; Isa. 61:10; Acts 17:28).

Tcrcíorc, as you arc fighLing íor Lhc army oí Lhc Iord, you will wanL Lo

Your posiLion is in Lhc hcavcnly placcs in ChrisL 1csus (Fph. 2:6). Rcmcmbcr,
as Hc is in Lhc world, so arc wc (2 Cor. l0:7, Rom. 6:4–5). To mainLain Lhis

“Lhronc-room” praycrs (Hcb. 4:l4–l6, S:l–5, l0:l9–23) Lo kccp you aligncd

cnly posiLion in ChrisL 1csus, who has bccn cxalLcd abovc all principaliLics

You arc praying offcnsivcly, in hcavcnly placcs, having rcccivcd powcr ovcr all

PuL on Lhc Iord 1csus ChrisL, and makc no provisions íor Lhc flcsh—lusL,
cnvy, sLriíc, biLLcrncss, íornicaLion, haLrcd, and so on (Rom. l3:l4, Cal.

6. Effectively use your authority.
Tc blood oí 1csus ChrisL givcs you Lhc righL Lo cnLcr Lhc holicsL oí placcs

7. Effectively use your weapons.
Tc sword oí Lhc SpiriL is Lhc Word oí Cod, Lhc blood oí 1csus ChrisL, Lhc

3. Tis satanic kingdom has a cosmological system.
Tc word cosmology spcaks oí Lhc dynamic arrangcmcnL oí Lhc univcrsc

4. God has given us authority and power to expose Satan’s tactics and
overcome his attack.
SaLan rulcs Lhc kingdom oí darkncss. Rcmcmbcr, hc is Lhc princc oí Lhc
powcr oí Lhc air and noL Lhc carLh. Man has bccn givcn dominion ovcr Lhc

bccausc discmbodicd spiriLs wcrc noL givcn auLhoriLy Lo opcraLc on Lhc carLh.
Tis is why SaLan had Lo posscss Lhc body oí a snakc in ordcr Lo gain lcgal

kncw Lhc law oí undcrLaking any iniLiaLivcs in Lhc carLh rcalm. Flcsh and

S:4–6, ll5:l6, Iukc l0:l9, Fph. 2:2).
5. Satan has set himself up to be a god in the earth realm.
Hc is an imposLcr and an impcrsonaLor (Isa. l4:l2–l4). Sincc Cod aborLcd
his diabolical coup d’ état (aggrcssivc Lakcovcr) in Lhc Lhird hcavcns, SaLan
now aLLcmpLs Lo bccomc a god ovcr Lhc inhabiLanLs oí Lhc carLh. You musL

6. Satan and his demonic cohorts have the ability to oppress, possess,
and terrorize humanity.
You musL idcnLiíy Lhc spiriLs, Lakc your auLhoriLy ovcr Lhc cncmy, and

8. Te kingdom of Satan is a kingdom of darkness.
Whcn wc spcak oí Lhc kingdom oí darkncss wc spcak oí any LcrriLory or
domain whcrc Lhcrc is an abscncc oí Cod, divinc rcvclaLion, purposc, and

1ob l2:25, Isaiah 59:l0.)
9. Te kingdom of darkness is accessible to both spirit beings and human
beings who either visit or make their abode there.
Fallcn angcls dwcll Lhcrc. Tis kingdom oí darkncss is noL íar rcmovcd
írom us aL all. As human bcings, wc can abandon Lhc laws oí Cod—Lhc laws
LhaL would bring us Lhc pcacc LhaL surpasscs all undcrsLanding—and livc in

UniLcd SLaLcs, or Iondon is Lo Fngland. Tink oí iL as you would Lhc capiLal

10. Like our own worship of the Lord our God, the kingdom of darkness
also has a mode of worship.
1usL as your worship brings you inLo Lhc prcscncc oí Cod, saLanic worship
will bring you inLo Lhc prcscncc oí SaLan. Rcmcmbcr, worship is noL jusL an

11. Te kingdom of darkness can be experienced by both the physical

Tc cxpcricncc oí Lhc kingdom oí darkncss can bc physical, and iL can also
