Spiritual Warfare, by Gary E. Gilley -Part 1: on spiritual warfare prayer

Gary Gilley covers on many areas of the assumed spiritual warfare. One of them, in Part 1, is on what has been called “spiritual warfare prayer.” He reviews Mark Bubeck’s book among others. Bubeck’s book is titled The Adversary.

Pastor Gilley writes:
Bubeck says, "There comes a time where the practice of a particular fleshly sin may move from a sin of the flesh into a sin controlled and dictated by satanic, demonic activity" (p35).

How do we know when this has happened? Bubeck assures us that if we have been unable to handle a particular sin through the normal Biblical methods we, "Must now consider the fact that the problem well may be some demonic hold...which must be broken" (p101).

What are some of the “tools,” as Bubeck calls them, that we must employ in order to defeat the demons? Based upon no properly interpreted Scriptures, Bubeck claims that all believers have authority over the demons (p90), so that we can bind them (p91), pull down their strongholds (p106)and command them to obey us (p121).

How is all of this done? Bubeck advocates a thorough understanding of the truths of the Word, which we are in complete agreement. He also is a strong believer in prayer — who can argue with that? But his prayers have some interesting features. For example, he has numerous written prescribed prayers that are to be recited based upon the particular need of the person. In addition to reminding us too much of Roman Catholic rituals, we find no examples of his type of prayer in the NT.

His most well known prayer, "The Warfare Prayer," is a case in point. This prayer (p140), which is borrowed from another man, is prayed by many believers every morning in an attempt to ward off Satan for that day. The highlighted statement in the prayer is this sentence: "Satan, I command you, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to leave my presence with all your demons, and I bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between us."

Since when are we to address Satan in prayer? Bubeck tell us, "It is not improper but very biblical to address yourself against Satan. ...Address him like this, 'Satan, I resist you'" (p100). This concept is not drawn from the Scriptures. And when did we get the authority to command demons to do anything? Even Michael would only say to Satan, "The Lord rebuke you" (Jude 9). And where in Scripture are we taught to pray for the Lord's blood to come between us and Satan? The blood of Christ cleanses us from sin, it is not a talisman for warding off evil. This is not a Biblical prayer, but a humanly contrived prayer.

Another interesting teaching of this branch of the SWM (Spiritual Warfare Movement) is the belief that demons have names that correspond with their area of oppression. The fictional writings of Frank Peretti have done much to popularize this concept. Demons that Bubeck cast out of his daughter had the names: "Fear," "Nausea," "Colon," "Destroyer," and "Deceiver." These demons, we are assured, were the cause for these exact problems in his daughter's life (p121).

We believe that the SW (Spiritual Warfare) teachers have made a fatal error, one which Bubeck even recognizes: "If I seek some experience which does not have a sound biblical foundation, I am opening my life to some deceiving spirit to come as an angel of light" (p130). Oh, that he would listen to his own counsel.

Pastor Gilley’s full article (Part 1) on spiritual warfare is available at his ministry’s website, Southern View Chapel, a non-denominational evangelical church
