What Is a Strongman?
A strongman is a high-ranking principality demonic spirit that sits on thrones in the spirit realm and rules over the evil spirits that operate in the earth realm. These evil spirits can rule over certain geographical areas of the earth, they can operate in churches and be passed down through generations in a family and they can also dwell within an individual. We must always remember that our fight happens in the spirit realm. Our fight is not against flesh and blood men and women. Our battle is against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. These are the demonic spirit forces that have set up thrones in the second heaven to block us from entering into the 3rd heaven where God resides. These forces block our prayers, our deliverance, our freedom and they have come down to earth to enter the hearts and minds of people.
How Does A Strongman Enter?
A strongman can gain access when there has been a door left open for the devil to gain access. When the enemy has gained entrance to a certain area, a strongman or a ruling spirit will be in control. Lesser evil spirits will follow as manifestations of the strongman, but to get rid of the evil spirits, you must first start at the root by dealing with the strongman. In order to be free from these strongmen deliverance must take place and you must bind the strongman and loose the Holy Spirit.
The word tells us that when a strong man like Satan is fully armed and guards his palace, his possessions are safe until someone even stronger attacks and overpowers him, strips him of his weapons, and carries off his belongings. We have been given authority from Jesus to go into the enemy’s camp and bind him up and take away his goods. These goods include our marriages, our children, our businesses, our churches and most important lost souls. Anything that the devil has stolen from us is ours to go in and take back. The Bible says that the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing,and violent people are attacking it. We have been allowed to advance upon the enemy and take back the goods under the protection of Jesus Christ.
16 Demonic Strongman Spirits
There are 16 demonic strongman spirits that the Bible speaks of. Jesus has given us power and dominion over all of them to bind them from operating while we pray for the Holy Spirit to come in and take over. We loose the Holy Spirit to come into the situation to set the captive free, to bring light in darkness, to remove the chains that have us bound and to proclaim freedom. We have been given the keys to heaven and whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
