Thanks xIRoyal KnightIx for taking time to discuss these things with me.
In coming back to the O.P. of the thread, it is the kind of faith that knows I have authority to cast out demons, to trample on serpents and scorpions and how that might play out in my life, without explaining a whole lot, one of the things I question regarding my faith, or the amount of faith I do or do not have.
He will prepare me, for whatever task He has for me, and then enable me to do it, I know.
I think about Job, and how Satan was allowed to touch his life, and that there would have been nothing he could do to stop this.
It was God's will that he be tested.
This was O.T. and so in the New Covenant, Jesus brings a different perspective to that issue. Perhaps the Book fo Job is more along the same lines as Luke 22.
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Peter said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death.” Jesus said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.”
(Luke 22:31-34 ESV)
Obedience is better than sacrifice. No amount of trying to be Godly through "doing" or "being" religious will help me obtain the prize of being made more like Him.
So maybe, the way I see disrupting of deceptions and spiritual principalities has more to do with the unseen, prayer-- And ones testimony: Overcoming.
Hoping to get back into the O.P. a little more.
