One of the greatest areas of confusion in the body of Christ is the area of strongholds. The Apostle Paul writes of them in his letter to the Corinthians:
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…” – 2 Corinthians 10:3–5
A stronghold is a lie that we believe. It is a fortress of thought in our mind. Usually the fortress is reinforced through Satan twisting our experiences. The following message I gave explains this in greater detail.
