"I believe our greatest strategy in overcoming this attack against the work of Holy Spirit is to pray in the Spirit. This is the best way to bypass our human reasoning and any demonic interference and go directly to the throne with God's will. "Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit always with all kinds of prayer and supplication. To that end be alert with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints" (Eph. 6:17-18). We are being told that the sword is of the Spirit; therefore, we must pray in the Spirit when we hold it. The Word of God is not of the flesh. It was born of the Spirit. Therefore, we must put on our spiritual armor and pray in the Spirit in order to disable the demonic assault on the King's advance." -- Wanda Alger
Ashondamababalabadabadoo? That is your answer? Sorry Wanda but speaking in gibberish is not the solution. It is interesting that Wanda gives up the ghost here when she admits that the main goal of the NAR false signs and lying wonders is to have you give up your human reasoning. Nowhere does the bible remotely suggest that we have to stop reasoning in order to partner with the Holy Spirit. Her tortured logic of holding the sword and therefore you must speak in the spirit is simply asinine. God is both Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Jesus has already told us He is His word. You are not marching on a King's advance Wanda. If you were, you would at least adhere to what He has said in His word.
"Notice, too, the goal of our prayers--one another. Rather than warring against the devil, we are supposed to be praying for each other to stand strong and not give up. Rather than getting distracted by all the brush fires he keeps starting, we are supposed to lift one another up to the throne of grace to receive strength, courage and the boldness needed to not retreat. I am being personally tested in this like never before. My oldest son just recently "came out," declaring he no longer believes in God. My son, who had a visitation from Holy Spirit when he was 7, has preached, prophesied and led worship, gone to ministry school for three years and was raised as a preacher's kid in the church. Why? Because the religious spirit has warred against his soul, convincing him not to trust the Spirit within. Yes, it breaks my heart. But God's not done! I believe I am like many other parent warring for their children and many other believers warring for this nation. The enemy is hitting below the belt and stirring up a zeal within the house of the Lord." -- Wanda Alger
This is so sad. I would not normally comment but she has brought this matter into the conversation. In all likelihood her son was never saved because Wanda follows a false gospel and a false christ. When you abuse your young child with wild and fanciful tales of spiritual magic wrapped up in pseudo-piety it is no wonder that a seven-year old's imagination kicks in. Her son sounds like any number of thousands of churched kids, raised by well-intended parents, who learned how to do church but never met Christ. So a "religious spirit" is not what did him in Wanda -- you did. I do stand with you that he will return searching for the Savior he never knew. You may think you are warring but you are warring against God. Zeal in and of itself is useless and without doctrine it is like a sword in the hands of a lunatic (Calvin). This is the truly frightening thing beloved. There are many fraudsters in this movement. People who are simply making a buck who know they are lying. Jennifer LeClaire strikes me that way. There are others who have drunk the Kool-Aid and pushed all their chips in. Wanda Alger is so deceived herself and as Christ warns, if you have convinced yourself that your darkness is light, how deep is that darkness. Her son was raised in this mess. He went to school based on this mess. He eventually realized it was a mess. Instead of looking at the mess, Wanda has been taught to blame the strawman of the religious spirit. As I said, this is so sad.
"Rather than giving in to hearsay and deceptive reports, I choose to stay in the Spirit and not yield him any ground. I'm not going to yell because he's not worth my energy. But I will raise my voice to heaven and speak the language of the Spirit so that the presence and power of the King will be felt! This is my watch, and I will not let this low-level demon rob me of my inheritance or cheat me out of my legacy. I will not back down! Perhaps things are intense because the enemy is on his last leg. Perhaps it gets the darkest before the morning light." -- Wanda Alger
Wanda, the language of the spirit is the word of God, not you babbling incoherently. You have been lied to. I am not saying this out of any sense of religion, just based on what God's word says. You are basing everything on your feelings. Your own confirmation bias alone robs you of any ability to truly discern if it is God speaking to you or the devil. That is why He gave us His word. Now she rattles off some declarative statements I will address one by one:
"All I know is that we have no other choice but to stand, not give in and yield continually to the Spirit of God."
