SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Dear friends,

For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places(Ephesians 6:12). He has chosen us as co-workers in the establishment of His Kingdom and the destruction of the kingdom of darkness. God is waiting for His people to rise up and take hold of the victory He purchased on the Cross.

Spiritual warfare is a life lived. It is embracing the truth and living daily, aware of the enemy and committed to God. It is knowing that God has left it up to us. If we do not drive back the powers of darkness, they will not be driven back. If we do not rebuke the enemy, he will not be rebuked. If we do not reduce the evil in the world, it will continue to grow. Spiritual warfare is not a fragment of Christianity. It encompasses everything we do. To be a Christian is to be a spiritual warrior. To be as spiritual warrior is to walk consistently and victoriously through life, with Christ at our side. The enemy has been defeated because of the blood of the Lamb and by our testimony (Revelation 12:11).

The reason a defeated devil has consistently beaten a so-called victorious Church is because we are always fighting one another. We can be so earthly minded, fighting our fight in the earthly realm, that we are of no value in the heavenly battle. We fire our canons in the wrong realm. If we are not fighting in heavenly places, we will fight in earthly ones. God wants His people to be an army that influences the world and drives back the powers of darkness. We must see the threat we are to Satan as intercessors and recognize our significance in the earth as agents of God. Our diligence in prayer is not to wake God up, nor to beg Him, negotiate with Him, nor convince Him. He is already convinced and willing to help, to bless and save us. This is His character. He is trying to wake us up, and convince us!

Aware of the Devil, Impressed with God! The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us! Read more >>>>
