And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (Colossians 2:15 KJV)

In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. (Colossians 2:15 NLT)

This is a follow up from capsule 21.The only way the devil can succeed against you is with your cooperation. Most of the time we end up cooperating with him by default because we don't know better. The only power the devil can use against you is the one you surrender to him either knowingly or through ignorance (Hosea 4:6).

I have taken the liberty of using two translations of Colossians 2:15 (to help your understanding) because the implication if well understood is mind boggling! We are fighting a defeated, disarmed foe. If we really appreciate this you will know it is virtually impossible to lose, the only way he can get to you is if he somehow manages to get you to lower your weapon or convince you it is not effective.

What the devil have in abundance are wiles, lies and cunningness , and he is good at using them. It doesn't matter the guise, whether sickness , disease or poverty etc the only way to combat it is through knowledge. That is why Paul advised Timothy to fight the good fight of faith (1Timothy 6:12). It is called the good fight for a reason, because you will always win if you fight the right way.

The implication of this is when disease or sickness comes against you, refuse to cooperate. Refuse to lower your weapon which is your shield of faith and attack it with the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:16-17). Say it is written

'Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed.' (1 Peter 2:24 KJV)

' No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord'. (Isaiah 54:17)

'No weapon' means there is no exception to the rule, it does not matter the type of disease or sickness it cannot win, however the later part of that scripture says you have to condemn it. How do you do this? With your words! In this world the battle is won with words!

Keep saying it no matter what, until that sickness and disease melt away! That is the way to fight a defeated, disarmed foe. If you believe it in your heart and confess it with your mouth the victory is bound to manifest.
