Pray that the saints would see that the Lord Jesus’ gospel preaching involved His binding of the strong man (Satan) and the plundering of his goods, his vessels (the fallen people under Satan’s usurpation), for the kingdom of God (Matt. 12:29; Luke 11:21-22).
Matt. 12:29—Or how can anyone enter into the house of the strong man and plunder his goods unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will thoroughly plunder his house.
Luke 11:21-22—When the strong man, fully armed, guards his own homestead, his possessions are in peace. But when one stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes away his whole armor in which he had trusted and distributes his spoil.
