I strongly believe that if you were the only one in the world Jesus would still have died for your sins. Similarly, many people live their lives by accepting wrong concepts or believe, while many believe they are not able to live free from whatever have them in bondage, for example gambling. That is a lie and the sooner you stop believing these lies you will continue to live in bondage.
All these are lies and to tear them down you must first identify them and acknowledge that these are all lies then each day replace them with the truth. For example:. Not only that but I am getting out of debt. Many times Satan builds strongholds by reminding us of our past failures and sins.
5. Destroying Fortresses; Victory at Jericho (Joshua 6:1-27)
We have to remember that all our sins are covered under the blood of Jesus when we repent of our sins and all our failures are in the past. Whoever you were two years ago, you are no longer that person. Start walking in newness of life. Do not listen or start reasoning with the things that the enemy puts in your mind. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God , and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
In other words, censor your thoughts before they take root in your spirit. Do not waste your time thinking about it or trying to reason with it. Because His Word says otherwise:. We tear down strongholds through prayer. One of these weapons God has given us is prayer. In fact, prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us so much that all the armors of our warfare hangs on, or activated by, prayer Ephesians We should never forget the awesome power of the Word of God in destroying spiritual strongholds.
With each suggestion the devil made to Jesus, he included reasons why Jesus should act upon his suggestions. God has given us resources to defeat the enemy.

We no longer have to live in defeat by allowing strongholds to control our lives. Through the Word of God and prayer we can start tearing or destroying spiritual strongholds. This is why it is very important for each believer to destroy any stronghold in his or her life before it destroys that individual.
Many Christians have killed their purpose or ministry because of strongholds. How are you destroying strongholds in your own life? Through prayer God has set my son free of a rebellious and stubborn spirit. With a learning disorder and lack of sport ability these lies were strengthened. We thank God for the victory in Jesus to year off the label the world gave my son and replace it with the true label of who he is in Jesus.
If we did, we would be on an emotional roller coaster. We stand upon the promises of God and His faithfulness to complete what He has begun in us! Encourage yourself in the Lord as David did. I praise you that you are in control and I am not! I remember when you did this and this for me and you came and ministered to me in such a special way. Gods not done with you. It feels like He is done with me. Good morning! He told them not only to remember where they had come from the condition, the environment, the slavery, their bondage , but also to remember with what power He operated in in delivering them.

Anthony, made the journey to advocate universal suffrage. These tensions finally erupted over conflicting views of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.
Although it established national citizenship for all persons born or naturalized in the United States, the amendment also introduced the word male into the Constitution for the first time. After the Fifteenth Amendment ignored sex as an unlawful barrier to suffrage, an omission that appalled Stanton, the AERA officially dissolved. This new approach interpreted the Constitution as already guaranteeing women the right to vote.

Broadcasting the New Departure, the NWSA encouraged women to register to vote, which roughly seven hundred did between and Anthony was one of them and was arrested but then acquitted in trial. Following this defeat, many suffragists like Stanton increasingly replaced the ideal of universal suffrage with arguments about the virtue that white women would bring to the polls. These new arguments often hinged on racism and declared the necessity of white women voters to keep black men in check.
The lines between refined white womanhood and degraded enslaved black femaleness were no longer so clearly defined. While white southern women decided whether and how to return to their prior status, African American women embraced new freedoms and a redefinition of womanhood.
The Fifteenth Amendment prohibited discrimination in voting rights on the basis of race, color, or previous status i. While the amendment was not all encompassing in that women were not included, it was an extremely significant ruling in affirming the liberties of African American men. This print depicts a huge parade held in Baltimore, Maryland, on May 19, , surrounded by portraits of abolitionists and scenes of African Americans exercising their rights.
Thomas Kelly after James C. Beard, The 15th Amendment. Celebrated May 19th , Many did not like what they saw, especially given the possibility of racial equality. Formerly wealthy women hoped to maintain their social status by rebuilding the prewar social hierarchy. Proponents of the Lost Cause tried to rewrite the history of the antebellum South to deemphasize the brutality of slavery.

LMAs and their ceremonies created new holidays during which white southerners could reaffirm their allegiance to the Confederacy and express their opposition to black rights. Their efforts to control their labor met the immediate opposition of southern white women. Gertrude Clanton, a plantation mistress before the war, disliked cooking and washing dishes, so she hired an African American woman to do the washing. A misunderstanding quickly developed. Meanwhile, this washerwoman and others like her set wages and hours for themselves, and in many cases began to take washing into their own homes in order to avoid the surveillance of white women and the sexual threat posed by white men.
Similar conflicts raged across the South. White southerners demanded that African American women work in the plantation home and instituted apprenticeship systems to place African American children in unpaid labor positions. African American women combated these attempts by refusing to work at jobs without fair pay or fair conditions and by clinging tightly to their children. Like white LMA members, African American women formed clubs to bury their dead, to celebrate African American masculinity, and to provide aid to their communities.
On May 1, , African Americans in Charleston created the precursor to the modern Memorial Day by mourning the Union dead buried hastily on a race track turned prison. African American women continued participating in federal Decoration Day ceremonies and, later, formed their own club organizations. Racial violence, whether city riots or rural vigilantes, continued to threaten these vulnerable households. Nevertheless, the formation and preservation of African American households became a paramount goal for African American women.
For all of their differences, white and black southern women faced a similar challenge during Reconstruction. Southern women celebrated the return of their brothers, husbands, and sons, but couples separated for many years struggled to adjust. To make matters worse, many of these former soldiers returned with physical or mental wounds. For white families, suicide and divorce became more acceptable, while the opposite occurred for black families. Since the entire South suffered from economic devastation, many families were impoverished and sank into debt.
All southern women faced economic devastation, lasting wartime trauma, and enduring racial tensions. Violence shattered the dream of biracial democracy. Still steeped in the violence of slavery, white southerners could scarcely imagine black free labor. In the post-emancipation period it was used to stifle black advancement and return to the old order. Much of life in the antebellum South had been premised on slavery. The social order rested on a subjugated underclass, and the labor system required unfree laborers.
A notion of white supremacy and black inferiority undergirded it all. Whites were understood as fit for freedom and citizenship, blacks for chattel slave labor. Congress of the Thirteenth Amendment destroyed the institution of American slavery and threw southern society into disarray. The foundation of southern society had been shaken, but southern whites used black codes and racial terrorism to reassert control of former slaves. The Ku Klux Klan was just one of a number of vigilante groups that arose after the war to terrorize African Americans and Republicans throughout the South.
