First, bind the “strongman” of Islam!


Jesus said that unless we first bind the strongman we cannot spoil his house, Matthew 12:29. It is time Jesus Christ’s disciples were convinced this is true and acted on it with regard to Islam.


We are not ignorant of the demonic “strongman” heading up the move of Islam throughout the world; particularly in Europe. He is identified in Daniel 10:13 as “the prince of the kingdom of Persia”.


If Christ has all authority and power in heaven and on earth (Ephesians 1:20-21; 2:2; 3:10; 6:12) and Christ’s disciples have been granted all authority in His name, then surely it’s time we acted like it and bound this “strongman” in the name of Jesus? I personally have begun praying for the binding of this “strongman” of Islam. I have also begun praying for the conversion of the princes of Saudi Arabia; a powerful citadel of this satanic “strongman”.


Yes, we can become angry with the spread of Islam and even believe we are justified in the worldly call for military destruction of the nations controlled by this demonic “strongman”, but that will never glorify Jesus Christ; it will merely result in millions of lost souls heading to hell.


As it is God’s desire for all mankind to be saved through the blood of Jesus Christ and come to a knowledge of the truth (1Timothy 2:4), it is therefore our responsibility to pray for the salvation of these Islamic nations and be prepared to go and preach the gospel when an effectual door is opened by Jesus for us, Romans 1:16-17, Colossians 4:3, 1Corinthians 16:9, 2Corinthians 2:12.


In the first instance though, let us all increase our prayers for these Muslim nations and especially for the conversion of the princes of the principality of Saudi Arabia; a powerful citadel of the “strongman”. Let us pray night and day for the Holy Spirit to convict these men of sin, righteousness and judgment (John 16:8), for in their conversion this powerful citadel will be removed and the “strongman’s” influence diminished substantially.
