Christian Spiritual Warfare

Post  Waqar Daniel on Wed 22 Oct 2014, 11:45 am

“We as Christians, do not wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.(2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

  1. The Battlefield is the Mind
    Our faith is based on God’s truth and promises. Doubt, guilt, and false teaching can weaken our faith. If we think the same way unbelievers do, it will keep us from knowing God. “....We must be transformed by the renewing of our minds” (Romans 12:2) In order to live a godly life, you must first have a personal relationship with Jesus.

  2. The Enemy is Satan
    “For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world,...” (Ephesians 6:12). People are not our enemies. Our enemies are the spiritual forces of Satan. Satan is real, and the Bible calls him “the ruler of this world of sin” (1 John 5:19), the “Father of Lies”, a murderer (John 8:44), and “the Accuser” (Revelation 12:9-10).

    Satan’s goal is to keep people from God. He attacks our thoughts with lies, temptation and guilt so we will doubt our salvation in Jesus. He can’t take away our salvation, but he can steal our joy and destroy our desire to tell others about Jesus. Because Jesus wants us to be united in love, Satan tries to divide us and set us against each other.

  3. Jesus has Won the Victory
    We are conquerors because Jesus defeated sin and death on the cross (Romans 8:31-39). Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit, a Helper who leads us in truth. (John 16:13). The Holy Spirit lives in us and gives us the power to have victory. “You had power over them because the One Who lives in you is stronger than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4).

  4. We have Godly Weapons
    The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.(2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

The Christian walk is harder than walk the world has but once your walk with Christ you are unable to walk on your own.
