    Be Strong in the Lord

         Spiritual warfare is a reality of the Christian life. But remember,

         we know the ending – our side wins. Since the Devil has

         already lost, he has nothing to lose in trying to take as many

         people with him in defeat. Therefore:
       

         “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power

         of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may

         be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

                                                                         (Ephesians 6:10-11).

    Spiritual Warfare: How Do We Go Into Battle as Christians?

           Spiritual warfare is an image that many of us would rather

           reject. However, since the Bible uses terms of warfare, it’s

           best that we accept God’s imagery, so that we’re properly

           prepared for real battle. As Christians, we’re going through

           more than a mere “struggle” on earth – and its seems that

           war imagery captures this reality better than anything else.

           Since it’s warfare, God instructs Christians to use a very

           specific set of armor and weapons in Ephesians 6:14-18:

     
           “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,

           and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And

           your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

           Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall

           be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And

           take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,

           which is the Word of God: Praying always with all prayer

            and supplication in the Spirit...”


            God’s list of weaponry is rather unique – these are “weapons

           of peace.” Throughout the Bible, you will find examples of

           God’s weaponry in action. For instance, King Jehoshaphat

           sent out praise singers in front of his soldiers to cause disarray

           among the enemy; Joshua used singing and trumpets to bring

           down the great city of Jericho; and what better example of

           using faith in battle than David fighting Goliath with a slingshot.

     

           Of course, the lesson in all these examples (as in all spiritual

           warfare today) is that it’s only God who allows us to claim

           victory over evil!

    Spiritual Warfare: What Is It?

         Spiritual warfare exists in the unseen, supernatural dimension,

          where God is all-powerful and Satan is in revolt. As any

          Christian soon discovers, although spiritual warfare is unseen,

          it’s absolutely real. The Bible speaks of spiritual warfare in

          many places, but most directly in Ephesians 6:12, where Paul

          speaks of putting on the full armor of God:

          “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against

           principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the

          darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in

          high places.”
