Sabotage definition: to deliberately stop someone from achieving something, or to deliberately prevent a plan or process from being successful; to intentionally do something that stops someone from achieving what they wat or stops something from developing as it should.

Charisma Magazine -I discerned the hindering spirits working against me but I didn’t see the higher-level spirit of sabotage that was ultimately at the root. In other words, I didn’t immediately discern the strongman of sabotage. A general of intercession revealed this to me when I shared with her the warfare coming against me. At that point, it was obvious, and I could see the workings of this spirit at several levels of my life, family and ministry.

Merriam-Webster defines “sabotage” as “destruction of an employer’s property (as tools or materials) or the hindering of manufacturing by discontented workers.”

Another definition of “sabotage” is “destructive or obstructive action carried on by a civilian or enemy agent to hinder a nation’s war effort.” Again, you see the hindering nature of the spirit of sabotage in this definition. The enemy agent is clear, and its agenda is an all-out war to take you off God’s track and oppress you, suppress you, repress you and depress you.

Additional definitions of “sabotage” include “an act or process tending to hamper or hurt” and “deliberate subversion.” The spirit of sabotage works with other spirits to take you to task, to hamper you, to hurt you and to purposefully and intentionally subvert you. For sake of clarity, “subvert” means “to secretly try to ruin or destroy a government, political system and so on”; “to make (something) weaker or less effective”; “to overturn or overthrow from the foundation”; and “to pervert or corrupt by an undermining or morals, allegiance or faith.”

WordPress – Sabotage according to Webster’s dictionary is deliberate destruction. It is destructive or hampering action by enemy agents.

Beware of the Spirit of Sabotage-

Sabotage is a strong demonic spirit with the agenda to stop, deliberately prevent the operation, success, and progress of God’s appointed destinies, purposes, potentials, organizations, dreams, visions, and relationships. It operates by stirring up jealousy and strife. It keeps contention going. It works to promote resentment and suspicion. It can be vindictive toward people. Self-sabotage is a destructive spirit that focuses on the insecurities of the individual to destroy personal progress or ground gained. Sabotage is sent to hinder and discourage relationship.

The conspiracy of sabotage is revealed in the book of Nehemiah. The bible says that Nehemiah, who was the cupbearer to the king, received a burden from the Lord to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. He was met with great opposition through ridicule, anger, mockery, and continued threats of war to hinder the work. The bible says that Nehemiah and those who worked with him overcame the opposition by continuously staying focused and praying. Nehemiah was a man destined with purpose, who remained vigilant and focused through prayer and God gave him the victory over his enemies.

Just a few Biblical examples -Joseph thrown in pit/slavery/ prison; Jesus from birth to death-where the devil really thought he had won; Book of Acts with the disciples and just look at the life of Paul (2Cor 11:22-33)


Speak to that mountain of Sabotage. Bind the strongman and  overthrow the enemy’s plans to sabotage our families/ministry.
