Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 16:18(KJV); And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
The war that the Church of Christ is waging against the enemy is at hell’s gates and not at the Church’s gates. The Church’s gates are not distressed with the ravages of war, they are wide open, admitting saints into God’s kingdom. The chaos is at hell’s gates, where God’s generals are busy causing havoc.
What this means is that it is not the devil that is attacking the Church, it is the Church that is attacking the devil. We are not the one’s running away from him, he is the one running away from us because we are in hot pursuit!
Think about it!
Often times, people’s testimonies are about how they survived the devil’s attacks: the devil attacked them with a disease, he attacked them with an accident or he attacked them with robbers.
That is not how God expects you to think. Your testimony should be of how you are attacking the devil. It is the demons that should go back to their meetings crying about how you attacked them.
This is how Christ lived. His mere presence in a place was an attack on demons. They quailed with fear before He even spoke a word (Matthew 8:28-29).
The Bible does not have any record of Jesus conversing with Peter about how he survived a demonic attack. No!
In fact, when Jesus died, the Bible says He descended to hell. Why?
He was on the offensive! When He descended into hell, He went there as a general waging an attack. (Colossians 2:15).
Change your understanding and language. Let it not be you claiming to have “demonic attacks.” Let it be the devil having “Christian attacks.”
You are depopulating hell, casting out devils, and healing the sick. You are the one attacking the devil, he is not attacking you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You are depopulating hell, casting out devils, and healing the sick. You are the one attacking the devil, he is not attacking you.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. What a delightful truth! Today, I arise in boldness knowing that victory is my portion. I am matching onward, shaking hell and the foundations of this world for the sake of the kingdom. The devil is afraid of me because I know who I am and whose I am.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
