Know Your Enemy
As Christians, we must be aware of the fact that we are involved in warfare. One of Satan's main strategies has been to blind our eyes to the conflict we are in, and thus make us defenseless against his attacks. But God has given us every weapon we need to be victorious over our enemy!
2 Corinthians 10:3,4 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses
It is important to remember that these weapons are not of the natural world. They are of the spirit.
Many of the writers of the New Testament used terms of warfare. These are not symbolic terms, but rather actual descriptions of the battle in which we are engaged. These battles are to be conducted in the spirit area.
