Weapons of Spiritual Warfare are not Worldly

Dear all,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Word and Thought:

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Corinthians10:3, 4)

The weapons of spiritual warfare are not worldly. They are powerful through God to demolish the devil’s forts. We don’t wage war with human plans and methods. Remember, we should always sharpen our spiritual weapons in prayer and by waiting before God with perseverance (Ephesians 6:13 -18).

The Lord of the Armies is with us. We stand still and know that He is God! (Psalms 46:9-11). Stop and listen to Him before you proceed!

When God is supplying all your weapons for the spiritual battle, no challenge is too big to win. While you are walking through the rocky road – Remember Jesus also walked on the same road. So He is able to give strength to overcome the evil with good.

Whatever the resources we have let us use them for the development of Christ’s kingdom. Moses had a stick – God asked Moses what is in your hand and God used Moses mightily. David had a pebble – God has used that pebble. Gideon – God encouraged him by addressing him as a” mighty man”. Now whatever resources we have in our hands – let us use for Christ’s Kingdom.

Though the ills of earth may wound me,

And the storms of life confound me—

With His loving arms around me,

I’ll go with Him all the way!

(Fanny J. Crosby, 1823-1915)

Be Strong in the LORD

Dear all,

Be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10 – 20

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

Sometimes it is useful to read an author’s commentary (a series of explanatory notes on a text) on the scripture.

Thought:

Knowing God in a personal way through Christ Jesus and also his eternal purpose for us will help us to be victorious through difficult times. Satan may attack a believer either directly or indirectly through deception. To identify and overcome the traps of the devil in our faith journey in Christ, we need to apply the Word of God in every dimension to stop the devil’s evil actions.

Spiritual Warfare is Real – So, we are in a battle against three enemies – the world, the flesh and the devil!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: 1 John 2:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+2:16

Thought:  Know who you are in Christ Jesus, and know your enemy!

So we are in a battle against three enemies – the world, the flesh and the devil.

The world comes at us from the outside bombarding us with counterfeits to truth.

The flesh comes at us from the inside.

The devil is constantly and continuously attacking us, usually working through the world and the flesh rather than mounting a full-on attack.

All three of them try to subdue us without fighting. They attack us at our weak points.  To stand firm in our battle, we need to know the truth and permit the truth to penetrate into our minds.

”You know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 32

True Christian Life is not a Playground, but a Battle Ground

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Ephesians 6

Word: The Whole Armor of God:

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A+10+-17&version=NASB

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Thought:

True Christian life is not a playground, but a battle ground. To thrive in every battle against the strategies and tactics of satanic forces, we need to absolutely rely on God’s strength. Apply every piece of his armor (defense and offence). When we continue to walk with the LORD step by step and day by day, He will turn every battle into an excellent opportunity to show His power, resulting in bringing glory to His name.

Stand firm in Christ

Be diligent and attentive. Submit to God and resist the devil in Jesus name. Be filled with the power of Holy Spirit.

LORD Jesus doesn’t need fans but disciples.

Stand firm in Christ and Pass on the Good News
