The Spirit of Goliath

The Spirit of Goliath
“Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he defied the armies of the living God.” I Samuel 17:36


We, the body of Christ must continually be on guard for the endtime release of familiar spirits. Although their approach may be enhanced or altered to reflect our current times – the underlying spirit is the same as before. One of these is the spirit that I’ll call the spirit of Goliath (very similar to the spirit of leviathan).

This spirit will attempt to taunt, boast, and present an appearance of supreme rule over the body of Christ. It will attempt to paralyze the body of Christ and to infiltrate our minds with fear, doubt and disbelief. It will also attempt to challenge, mock and to belittle through repeated verbal proclamations. Unless this spirit is recognized; we the endtime body of Christ will begin to become subject to and submissive to the boundaries which it will impose. We are gradually beginning to be plagued by thoughts of hopelessness and the feelings of defeated and worry – simply because of the constant onset of negative harassment emulating from this spirit.

However, we have been already been given the “Ability & Authority” intermingled with the wisdom from the Holy Ghost, thus enabling us to conquer every demonic force (Matthew 10:1; Luke 10:19). The power that engulfed David (I Samuel 17) and empowered him with the wisdom to defeat the lion and the bear had already prepared him to successfully stand and slay Goliath. We also have defeated our lions (things that have attacked us from the ground) and our bears (attacks which have approached from above; spiritual wickedness in high places). Therefore, we have passed the test and are ready to kill this “Goliath Spirit” without hesitation.

Lastly, we must also remember that in this season, the attacks are geared more to our minds than to any other areas of our being and our lives. If this or any spirit – other than the Holy Spirit can intervene into our thought patterns for just a brief moment, we risk defeat!

The attacks are just beginning and will become more intense in the future. However, we must never forget that– THE BATTLE HAS ALREADY BE WON! We only have to remain focused, and adhere to our instructions from the Lord concerning the maintenance of our daily walk with Him. Set you affections, your cares and your attentions more on the things which are above…. Above your present level of operating….Above what you currently think that you are capable of accomplishing… Above the opinions and stimulations of others! Take the limits off! (Colossians 3:2)

Remember that the sky isn’t the limit…you have no limit! In this season, you can achieve MORE than anything that you can ask or think! (Ephesians 3:20) Refuse to become intimidated by anyone or anything. You ARE more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37) So place everything that is contrary to what God has decreed, under the subjection of the power that reigns within you!

Slay that spirit of Goliath at its onset, maintain your focus, keep your affections on Kingdom Principles….and you won’t have to be overly concerned about succumbing to the power of this or any other demonic force.

“Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” I Peter1:13 NASB

  • Praise God HalleluYah truly grateful for reading this on tonight. About how we should be slaying our own Goliath in our life. God has really open up a lot in this woman of God to reveal and share with us and we appreciate you HalleluYah Apostle Bishop Boatwright what is great word manifestation eye opening awareness. My God I have to say that I think I have had a few challenges in my life where they're those Goliath that's it in my life and like she said in the message even if it comes in your mind for a brief second you are risking the deaft  and there are a lot of time where I had to plead the blood of Jesus against the thought that would come in and I was at a major risk of being defeated so I thank God for this reminder not even for a second not even for a minute and none of it and don't risk being defeated. We must keep in our lives that we have won the battle is already won. So I thank God for that its another encouraging motivating reading for me and my life right now and I'm going to keep being inspired because this is inspired me a lot and I'm just grateful for my journey in my walk with God. Because I will keep this reading as a reminder of why I'm doing what I'm doing with God and why I have chosen to slay in the spirit in my life. Because they mean me no good and I'm grateful to know I'm on The Winning Side the battle is already won HalleluYah.

  • My God this so on time for me Apostle Boatwright, we really need to get rid of our Goliath because it has no power and authority. We need to activate that same wisdom power that David had into ourcellves. Yes I totally agree Apostle Boatwright we must not be afriad of the no name and don't allow them to defeat us. We must defeat them and wer must destroy them, they have been taking us deeper into hinderence. Now we must know that we are empowered by God. We already have to power inside of us. It is important to get ourcellevs grounded in God, because God can teach us his true power of wisdom. 

  • This is a powerful teaching and awareness of this type of spirit; “Goliath Spirit”, we have been recognizing it through various situations and from people. Listening to what others saying, “through repeated verbal proclamations”, we have to put our guard up and not allow any of the negativity to enter-in. as stated in our reading “It will attempt to paralyze the body of Christ and to infiltrate our minds with fear, doubt and disbelief.” It is so important that we walk and operate in more than that we know who we are into Knowing Who We Are with Faith, by God Word, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High. Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].” [Palms 91:1]. Do we know our dwelling place? We lodge, reside, and inhabit under His Shadow. HalleluYAH. This is a strong statement from our writer; “geared more to our minds than to any other areas of our being and our lives. If this or any spirit – other than the Holy Spirit can intervene into our thought patterns for just a brief moment, we risk defeat!”. We must understand and believe that we are warriors, paying attention, not agreeing to everyone’s word, or action, to say “no, not today”. Becoming more in connection with God, without a doubt His Words are true, faithful and will not be taken down, done away with. So, we decided to truly read, study, and understand with His wisdom to us that “A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But danger will not come near you”. Thank you Apostle Boatwrigth, we are taking heed to your teaching.
