… of our Warfare!
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal
but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
2 Cor 10 48
What is the essence or reality of spiritual warfare?
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may
be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Eph 6 11
What are the WILES of the devil?
The wiles of the devil are his trickery, his lies and deceit,
because he knows that the only way he can stop us,
… is to mess with what we believe,
… and so hinder our faith walk.
The devil cannot stop what God is doing,
but he can try stop us believing in what God can do!
Therefore God says to us (Eph.6 13-18)
… take the whole armour of God.
Girded with the truth … What God says!
The breastplate of righteousness … Your right standing!
The gospel of peace … knowing what is yours in Christ!
Shield of faith … knowing how and where you are going!
Helmet of salvation … protecting and directing your thinking!
The sword of the Spirit … His Word for you and in you!
Praying in the Spirit … hearing and depending on Him!
seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you.
Matt 6 33
