“For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4 (AMP)

“For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) realm.” Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)

In some cases, a stronghold may serve as a refuge. In other cases, a stronghold may serve as an encampment of demonic activity for to “ . . . steal, kill, and destroyJohn 10:10, and towards that end the perpetrator sends his cohort – doubt (that paves the way for another cohort – fear) to coerce or manipulate sons & daughters of God the Father by the blood of Jesus to use their tongue in speaking contrary to the way of God. This attempt to discourage is what the Living Word teaches in the Parable of the Four Soils (Matthew 13:3-9; Mark 4:1-8; Luke 8:4-8) and then reveals the information thereof to His Disciples (Matthew 13:10-23; Mark 4:10-25; Luke 8:9-18).

Know that Our Father, the Abba Father of all clothed in righteousness by the Blood is the Sovereign Lord God Almighty; no other is higher nor more powerful than Yahweh; He is El Elyon; He is Elohim; He is Yahweh Sabaoth/Jehovah Sabaoth. GOD’s Word is truth and it never returns void. Therefore, regardless of what it may look like in the natural, don’t allow the enemy to take the seed of God’s Word out of your mouth. For example, if you (as I) are applying 1 Timothy 2:1-2, we must remain steadfast on it. In other words, when wishy-washy or back-tracking behavior by the manipulations of the evil one is made evident, you and I aren’t to become wishy-washy or back-tracking in either behavior or speak.

Cursing is a spirit that isn’t of GOD. Rather, those reconciled unto the Family of God by the finished works of Christ Jesus have authority in the Name above all names to bind and loose (Matthew 16:19; John 16:23-24; Ephesians 6:12). Those rendered sons & daughters of God by the Blood are to put on the full armor of God daily and use the sacred ministry-of-authority, in the Name above all names (Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:15-18). We keep our eye on the Lord Jesus and in every situation we keep the sword which is the Word of God in our heart (spirit) and on our mind (soul) and audibly on the tongue.
