Spiritual Warfare

Evil is very present in the world these days!

People are wicked in their hearts.  Murder, rape, cruelty, abuse, lying, pornography, drugs……and the list goes on.  We tend to think our battle is with these people.

But…..it really isn’t!   It is a spiritual battle!

GOOD    VS.   EVIL

THE  POWER  OF  GOOD     VS.   THE POWER OF DARKNESS

GOD    VS.    SATAN 

Many people think that they are “neutral”.  They don’t want any part of a spiritual struggle.  The truth is……you can’t be neutral…..especially if you are a Christian.  Remember the song “Onward Christian Soldiers”?  It is a truth that we cannot escape.  There is a war raging between God and Satan.  God’s people must learn how to fight!

Let me tell you about your weapons!

THE   WHOLE  ARMOR  OF  GOD

Ephesians 6:10-20

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
