We Are In It!
It amazes me how many Christians do not realize the serious warfare we are in on planet Earth!
The truth is there is the natural realm that we see with our eyes and then there is the spiritual realm.
Ephesians 6 clearly says we wrestle not with flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Furthermore, many do not know how to battle victoriously! Lord Jesus showed us how to do so in Luke 4:1-13 and Matthew 4:1-11.
We battle with God’s Word! We give voice to His word! Even His angels pay heed to God’s word as we speak it out. See Ps 103:20.
We enforce by our words and faith what Christ the Lord has done on the Cross and through His Holy powerful shed Blood! “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Revelations 12:11.
‘The word of our testimony’ refers to what we are saying and by God’s Word and Grace believing we defeat our foes. All of them! Amen!
We speak God’s Word to our situations and lives. This is a blessed key for us believers in Christ as Lord!
Shall I show you how? For example, if fear is troubling you, find a scripture on it and ‘speak’ it out often. A good one is 2 Timothy 1:6-7.
“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
Submit your life and situation totally to God. Resist the devil in JESUS CHRIST Name, fear or whatever is troubling you and it WILL flee from you! We have God’s word on it, according to James 4:7-8! Then you draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Hallelujah!
Then pray verses that enable ‘Perfect Love’ which casts out fear to be in your life, according to 1 John 4:18. Follow also by blessed Holy Spirit the instructions laid out in 1 John 2:5 and 1 John 4:13, 16-17. Be blessed and experience the Perfect Love that casts our fear and have your love made perfect according to God’s promises. Amen.
Weapons for Defense
Here are the Main Weapons we have been given as Father God did not leave us weaponless:
- Christ’s Holy Blood
- God’s Word
- Praise (Psalms 9:3 & 22:3)
- God’s Armour
- The Name of Jesus
- The Power of the Holy Spirit
I encourage you to fulfill God’s word and daily deny yourself (the old sinful nature given to us by the first Adam). Pick up your Cross and follow Jesus. In Luke 9:23 Jesus instructs us to do that daily!
The Cross attained our Victory and we need to be walking in our new nature always, as shown in 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Be sure to affirm your defensive armour is in place by saying regularly “I am strong in the power of God’s might, having put on the whole armour of God!”
God’s word say put on the whole Armour of God! A victorious instruction! All the Armour is for our defense except the “SWORD of the Spirit”.
This is God’s word and a powerful weapon we are to use regularly! Take the shield of FAITH and say, “I quench every fiery dart of the wicked one against me with the shield of faith.”
Then say, “I take the SWORD of the Spirit (which is God’s Rhema Word) and pray.” Using God’s word in your prayers helps tremendously.
All this that I write, I do. God knows and I am so moved to help God’s army move more strongly!
He has led me to put together a wee booklet of Scriptural Prayers and a DVD of messages on Spiritual Warfare that I have spoken on our Eternally Yours Telecast. Be encouraged!
We win indeed for greater is Christ in us than our enemy in the world, as shown in 1 John 4:4.
So in closing, yield to Jesus Christ Lordship and always do Spiritual Warfare mingled with Rich Praise so you can be Victorious!
It is every Christian’s destiny to be hupernikao (Greek word for ‘More than conquerors’).
So be it Lord Jesus. Amen!
