CURSES AND STRONGHOLDS
The powerful enemy that Jehoshaphat faced was not only defeated by God's people, but they were spoiled by a complete conquest. The Bible declares: "No man can enter into a strong man's house and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house" (Mark 3:27). The Greek word for "spoil" in this passage is "diarpazo" which means to plunder, seize, or snatch away. The Greek word "house" is “oikos” meaning "dwelling place". If you seek total victory in the circumstances you face, then binding the enemy is not enough. You must learn how to "spoil his house."
Satan thinks your house--your mate, your children, your finances--belong to him. Just as the enemy threatened Jehoshaphat, Satan also threatens to steal, kill, and destroy what is yours.
Simply binding the work of the enemy does not bring total victory because if you let your guard down, he might get loose again. You must totally spoil his house. A stronghold is any area where Satan has seized control in your life. These strongholds are passed on through what are called "generational curses." Satan seizes control in one generation, and the curse is passed on to succeeding generations. The Bible reveals that the forces that determine events in this world fall into two divisions:
Visible and invisible. Blessings and curses are invisible forces of spiritual power which are transmitted by words because "Death and life are in the power of the tongue " (Proverbs 18:21).
You speak either a blessing or a curse and what you speak produces either positive or harmful results. Most people readily accept the concept of "blessing" as valid and Biblical, but are skeptical about the subject of curses. They think the word conjures up images of the dark ages, witches, and voodoo dolls. But just as the opposite of good is evil, the opposite of blessings are curses.
The Bible indicates that "the curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2 KJV), meaning that behind every curse there is a spiritual cause. Deuteronomy 27:15-26 lists moral and ethical sins that create spiritual breaches that open you up to strongholds of Satan. Some curses are imposed on you by authority figures in your life, for example a parent who said you were stupid and you believed it. It is also possible to receive a curse of having a propensity towards certain physical or spiritual conditions or a curse brought on by witchcraft. Whatever the cause, the evil can be conquered because Jesus has redeemed you from the curse (Galatians 3:13). Examine your life today for evidence of curses. If you think you are living under a curse or a stronghold of Satan is operating in your life, don't miss tomorrow's meditation. Or grab my 30-Day Spiritual Victory Devotional now!

Senior Leader - ATR Global Ministries, Daniel Emerson.
Daniel has a unique grace mix of an apostle, prophet, and evangelist. I believe this is the prototype that the Lord is using and emerging in this hour in the prophetic. Daniel reminds me of John the Baptist. The Lord has fashioned and formed him in the secret place, which has enabled him to become one of the emerging voices crying out, “Prepare the way of the Lord!”
Daniel not only has a heart for the prophetic, but also to help build and equip the Body of Christ. Daniel has tirelessly spent hours forming curriculum for podcasts, teachings, schools of the prophetic, and so forth. His heart is to see the Body of Christ mature and walk in the destiny God has for His Church. At the heart of it all, Daniel has a passion for souls and the end the harvest. As a voice in his life, it’s been a pleasure and joy to watch Daniel emerge and begin to impact what God has called him to. - Prophet Madeline James
