TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL (Friday 27th November 2020)

“The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him.” Psalms 89:22-23 NKJV

As we begin our school of spiritual warfare today, on the Morning Cloud Television, I want to say it has been a year of intense warfare for the human race, especially with the worship of the virus that has made everyone submissive with a face mask.

Actually, many do not know that Diseases are weapons of war in the spirit realm. You find this weapon used whenever there is a collision between the kingdom of darkness and that of light.

God used diseases in Egypt to advance His redemptive plans of mankind. He said to the nation of Israel, I will put none of the diseases of the Egyptians upon you. God can put diseases upon those who have become enemies of His redemptive plans to stop the enemy that may be using them to do so.

He sent and angel to slap Herod who was stopping His word from growing and prevailing in the days of the early Church. The man caught a disease and died instantly. A king once was did transgressed against and began to desecrate consecrated things and became very wicked, God sent Elijah who wrote a letter to him. As soon as the man read that letter, he caught cancer and died.

Diseases are weapons of war in the Spirit realm. God use them to save us from wicked men and women. Satan use them to destroy our lives and take souls to hell before they get any chance of repenting and becoming Heaven worthy.

The corona Virus was a weapon sent to stop what God is doing through the Eagle nation and kill men and women before they get any chance to repent and become Heaven worthy. The details of this attack are being called conspiracy theories by agents of the wicked one.

It is in public domain that taking President Trump out of the white house is one of the reasons for manufacturing of this disease that has killed so many. Yet they call it conspiracy theory. When Satan uses his agents to prepare a disease for the human race, it is to kill, steal and destroy! When his works ate exposed, the media will call it conspiracy theory.

A lot of innocent lives have been either killed or destroyed by this disease. Don’t forget what happened to Italy, Spain, and those beautiful European nations. Don’t forget how Bill Gates and the wife prophesied a massive death for Africa and how God intervened for us. Diseases are weapons of war in the spirit realm. If you do not know it, you have just known it.


Spiritual warfare is inevitable because the world is a spiritual war zone. The planet was not created to be a war zone but it became after the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden.

Diseases were not part of the weapons when spiritual war fare began, because there was no man to attack with diseases. In fact, spiritual warfare itself began in the eternal past; long before Mankind was created. The Bible made it clear that he was created long after spiritual war has broken out in Heaven between light and darkness.

John the Beloved saw this and said;

“And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought with the dragon: and the dragon and his angels fought. But they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world, he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” Revelation 12:7-9 NKJV

So we were created in a realm that was already charged with spiritual warfare. That was why, when mankind was placed in the Garden, he was given a briefing by the man of war Himself and told not to eat from the tree of sound judgment.

The reason was for him to eat it at a later date – the judgment day of God; and know the difference between good and evil, and then execute proper judgment on the devil and his angels.

However, Satan knew this plan, hence coming to make him thwart it, and here we are today! But our redemption was also brought in swiftly, to save as many of us that will reject sin and Satan, depart from the kingdom of darkness to serve living God in Spirit and in Truth.

This was done when God came as Jesus Christ, died on the cross and destroyed the devil completely. The Bible says,

“In as much as the children have partaken of flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is the devil.

And release those who through the fear of death were all their lifetime subject to the fear of death.” Hebrew 2:14-15 NKJV

I want to encourage you to mediate on this scripture until it sinks deeply into your soul.


It tells us that God’s will for our lives is that we do not remain under the grip of the enemy and his evil works. Yes, His perfect will is that the enemy who was defeated on the cross of Calvary, remains defeated in our lives. But that has not happened in the lives of so many. It has not happened basically for lack of wits.

The enemy have been destroyed on the Cross, but our lack of wits is preventing that victory from being translated into our lives. That is why we need a school of spiritual warfare. Not to learn about the devils but about our GOD and how to walk in the victory He has given us over the enemy.

You see, if the enemy outwits us in battle, he will throw us into a sinful life or unleash other things on us. That will be trouble. Our wits therefore, must remain intact for us not to be outwitted.

Child of God, taking about us not being outwitted in battle I want you to understand that spiritual warfare is a battle of wits. And when we say wits, we are referring to INTELLIGENCE, COMMON SENSE, SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING, and the use of THE SANCTIFIED HEAD or MIND to make way for ourselves, under GOD.

Actually, in spiritual warfare, it is those who use their Holy Ghost filled head that goes ahead in life.

Those whose heads are not filled with the Holy Ghost, or who may be filled with Him but do not engage their heads, will never be ahead of their enemies in life. The enemy will outwit whoever does not have a Holy Ghost sense to put to use in spiritual warfare.

The dictionary defined the word “OUTWIT” to mean “to get the better of (of someone) by superior intelligence.” That makes spiritual warfare a battle of spiritual intelligence.

In the context of our devotional today, when the enemy gets the better of us by superior spiritual intelligence, he has outwitted us. This he does by deceiving us. Lying is his language because by doing so he gets the better of us through superior spiritual intelligence.

Believe it or not, that is what is happening to so many Christians today – the devil getting a better of them by superior intelligence.


For instance, he will use teachings of grace that allows sin to reign supreme in our lives to keep us living in sin so he can destroy us whenever he wants. He will use seductive, attractive and acceptable things to keep us filthy enough to be perpetually oppressed, sick, and depressed by his demons.

He knows his activities only prevail where the glory does not dwell, and the glory and sin cannot coexist. So he may even keep us anointed, but living in sin so that he stays ever with us in spite of our anointing. That is superior intelligence.

Sadly, many do not know that one can be anointed and still live in sin, consequently, taking the presence of the anointing as either divine approval for his or her sinful life style, or a sign that God is not angry at his or her sin and that He understands.

That is Satan’s superior intelligence prevailing over us!

Today, the enemy has used Romans 8:1-2 to get a better of many of us by telling us

“there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus”

without adding,

“who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit”

to keep us comfortably in a sinful life. His superior intelligence has stolen Holiness from many of us, and stripped us naked in the spirit realm.

Whenever you see a Christian or preacher quoting Romans 8:1-2 half way, you have seen a man or woman living in secret sins. A pastor once used this half-quoted scripture to keep a lady he was not married to in sexual sin for a long time.

We have discovered that all the grace preachers who quote the portion of Romans 8:1-2 that suits them and leave the rest, are living in sin. The enemy has outwitted them in battle! But our devotional text this morning says,

“The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him.”

If He will not outwit us, then we must be ready to be schooled in the things of God; we must be ready to be schooled in Spiritual warfare. Not learning about demons and witches but about our God and the things which the Holy Spirit reveals comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

What can we glean from this devotional today? One of the many things to glean is this, if we allow the enemy to outwit us in the battles of life, it will open the door for every son of wickedness to afflict us.

Wherever a son of wickedness is successfully afflicting us (be it in our work place, family houses, marriages, destiny matters, Holiness matters, financial matters or etc), the enemy has outwitted us in that area. If the enemy outwit you in any area of life, you will need to get back your wit in that area of life to get back on your feet. That is the message of today’s devotional.


“I have found My servant David; with My holy oil I have anointed him, with whom My hand shall be established; also My arm shall strengthen him.

The enemy shall not outwit him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him.

“But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, and in My name his horn shall be exalted. Also I will set his hand over the sea, and his right hand over the rivers.

He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ Also I will make him My firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.

My mercy I will keep for him forever, and My covenant shall stand firm with him. His seed also I will make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips. Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David:” Psalms 89:20-29, 34-35 NKJV
