The topic is Spiritual Warfare. My opening questions are these:
- Do you know the Bible teaches there are demons seeking to destroy you?
- Do you know the source of struggles?
- Do you know you are fighting in a war?
- Do you know you possess power?
This is the beginning of bunch of teaching on the presence, activity and ultimate doom of evil and its manifold agents. Please keep a weekly look at our site under this series. Teaching direct from Bible so each can follow along. There is much to learn and our only source is the Bible.
Key Bible Verse
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness…
Do you know the Bible teaches there are demons seeking to destroy you?
- We learn from (1 Peter 5:8) to “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert… Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Not a pretty picture; those on the Jesus Path take heed!
Do you know the source of struggles?
- Ephesians 6:12 says: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” There is a vast array of enemy lined up against us.
Do you know you are fighting in a war?
- 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 instructs that “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses…” There is no ambiguity here. You might choose not to believe it but that won’t affect the Truth of it.
Do you know you possess power?
- 2 Corinthians 10:5 declares the followers of Jesus are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Here then is it clearly proclaimed. God has given you the juice to get by!
