War for the Human Race
War for the Human Race
Daniel King-this article will be featured in a Christian magazine)
Despite many attempts to destroy the credibility of the Bible, it still stands as the best selling book in the world. Its authority is unquestioned, and as the most influential book on the human race, no amount of theoretical evolutionary pseudoscience can debunk it. It still remains the most scientifically sound ancient text on the planet. Archaeologists find increasing evidence for its validity on a daily basis. Astrophysicists and mathematicians wonder at the impossibly precise accuracy of its scientific and historic data-all verified by astronomy, advanced mathematics and physics. So from here we can start to place our trust in this amazing collection of books called the Bible, and learn that it is not by the intellect, but by faith that we indeed come to believe it is the WORD OF GOD.
tells us that our Lord Jesus Christ said that the god of this world is Satan-the
Devil. He is also called the Prince
of the Power of the Air. Satan-which means the Adversary, the Devil which means The Accuser and
Slanderer are just titles, rather than his actual name. According to the Book of Enoch his name is most likely Azazel or
Shemyaza, but is generally known as Lucifer, which means Lightbearer. It
also means The Shining One or Blazing Star. Our Saviour Jesus also refers to him as The Great Deceiver,
and Father of Lies. Also this same
being is called the Great Dragon and the Ancient Serpent.
But why does Our Lord Jesus Christ call him the god of this world?
all, we must go back to the Garden of Eden.
And even before that. Apart
from speculation about what events occurred in heaven before The Fall of Adam
and Eve, there seems to be a general acceptance that Satan was a fallen angel
that was envious and jealous of the human race and sought to destroy it.
This is confirmed in many places throughout the Bible.
We shall draw reference to these scriptures later on.
important point that most scholars and readers of the Bible miss, is that this
being was stricken with pride so intense that he could tolerate no competition,
and that even included with God Himself. This
envious being wanted to be worshipped and adored like GOD, and masterminded a
long-term plan to do this. This
being did not want to share this close relationship he had with GOD with human
Feeling insecure and determined to make himself feel “more worthy”,
his pride made him all the more envious and determined to destroy the
competition: i.e. the human race,
and increase his status.
then elevate himself to the position he thought he deserved: a god.
The way he devised doing this would be to simultaneously hurt the human
“punish” GOD for creating them. This was revenge for the alleged “attack” on the
Devil's sinful pride and emotional security. Of course this
sounds like conjecture, but this I feel is bourn out in the Word of GOD.
Satan's main assault would not come till he could draw these humans away from
GOD. First he would destroy the union
between GOD and man. This was the
world’s first case of “divide and conquer”.
for the human race had to be disguised, and the 'tempting away' of these perfect
beings from GOD would have to be so intelligently crafted and subtle, that they
would not suspect anything, nor recognise the implications for being led away
from GOD. It is safe to assume that
the devil had already rebelled from GOD, although it may have been in a less
complete way than later on. (see Book of
course GOD knew everything the devil was plotting and planning and would use it
for HIS OWN PLAN, which was
to ensure the union with GOD and man could and would never be broken ever again.
But to do this, he would allow Satan the opportunity to carry out his
evil plan of
creating division between GOD and mankind.
we look into the Book of Genesis and read the story of Adam and Eve, we now see
the background for this story, that only much later reveals the behind-the-scenes
events, (Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jude, Book of Enoch* and Revelations) and fills in
the gaps. Only by
piecing the bits together can we then get an insight into the spiritual world
that is the main battleground for this war. Therefore, the war began with the Devil desiring to be like GOD, and his
desire to take revenge on HIM by hurting those HE loves-the human race. He would
draw them away from The Creator, but GOD would only allow it to REVEAL those
humans who WANTED to CHOOSE HIM. That is those who are opposed to living their lives apart from GOD, which
ultimately that they would be seduced by evil and follow SATAN.
So a war between GOOD and EVIL and human souls began.
Some people may be asking at this point, why did GOD allow Satan to embark on this psychopathic mission of destruction and hate directed at the human race? Why did GOD not stop Satan? This is a question many scholars and readers of the Good Book have difficulty with. The reason, as far as I can see, was to do with free choice. To choose between Good and Evil. If GOD is GOOD, and choosing Him means following HIM, then the opposite choice, is to follow EVIL. Although Satan has nowhere near any iota of the power of GOD, this choice would mean to follow him.
GOD knew, by putting the Tree of Good and Evil in the garden, that there
would be every possibility that Adam and Eve would choose to disobey His Command
not to eat from it. He did it
anyway. But it took the serpent
(Satan) to lead them toward this decision.
And he could only do it through deceiving them, with his cunning, his subtlety and
his evil lies: that
they would be like gods/GOD, and also that GOD was a liar.
In fact, he was the LIAR and father of all lies.
Since then he has been deceiving humans, tempting them/us with the same
lie. Repackaged into infinite variations.
So the offer always appears NEW. But
it is the same old Lie.
PART 3: Becoming
god of this world
using our own senses against us: sight-beauty, hearing-sound-music, touch/feel,
taste, and even smell, he would lure us into ungodly and unsafe activities that
would trap us into addictive behaviour.
By planting seeds of envy, fear, hate, lust, greed, anger, jealousy and
pride, he could lead the human race away from GOD into sins that would create
such a distance between The Maker and Mankind, causing us to feel alien to
our own TRUE state of being: never able to
remember or recognise what we were or what we are. Perfect sinless spirit beings
made to be in union with GOD.
By choosing to disobey, Adam and Eve then handed their dominion over to Satan, as GOD had said that they would be Masters of The Earth and all its animals. But they forsook their agreement to not eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and so Satan took control over the planet, and his fallen angels then occupied the earth, even taking human women as wives and creating the Nephilim**-a race of giants with supernatural powers. (Genesis 6:6). God decided to wipe out these half human-half angel beings, and the entire earth, because it had become so corrupt and evil. These beings had forced the humans to worship them, and also the Nephilim as gods (the fallen angels). This is the original story behind all the world's myths.
Although Greek mythology claims that the Titans (Teitans=Sheitans=Satans = adversaries) warred against the “gods” (fallen angels) - (Mt. Olympus being roughly synonymous with Mt. Hermon (see Book of Enoch) and Valhalla, they were the offspring of these fallen angels. Being half human, there may have been some less evil qualities and even some pro-human heroic ones, but this cannot be proven. So the Devil's angels were to lose their offspring from THE FLOOD that God was to send. They built flying vehicles; (Virmana’s, in the Indian Sanskrit, Mahabharata and Rig Veda). This was to travel over the earth and even between the spiritual realm/dimension and space.
The spirits of these Nephilim when they died became djinn, or demons. They are the main foot soldiers of Satan, although many different ranks exist. Satan commands them to attack and deceive humans every way possible, to get them to join him, or be destroyed. These demons are under the devil's command, and he is ruling as the god of this world. So JESUS was telling us that that being, called Satan the Devil has caused all the sufferings and evils in the world, and it is his minions that are doing his bidding. But it does not end there. Some humans have gone far beyond their ability to reason, have decided to join Satan. They deliberately invoke these demons and wilfully become energised with their power, desiring to become gods. Just as the Devil promised them. But they do not know the price they will have to pay for lusting after this illusion.
4 : The
Secret War that only True Christians know about
flood, when the Nephilim (djinn) died and became spirits, or demons, answerable to lower
ranking demons or fallen angels, the human race again began to become corrupted and
tried to build a tower to reach to heaven, in order to avoid another flood.
This was an act of defiance to GOD and also an act of worship to Satan,
as GOD had said to them to spread out over the earth, and not settle into
congested cities. But they refused to listen,
and so GOD confused their languages forcing them to spread out with people of
the same language, but they also took their defiance and newly founded false
religions with them over the earth.
religions were basically demon worship and ancestor worship, or a mixture of
both. Of course they also
worshipped the heavenly bodies: sun, moon, planets, stars and all astral
anomalies. They also began
worshipping the things they feared: predatory animals and reptiles, especially
serpents. Shamanism was
born-combining their worship of animals with demons, creating Totem religions.
In fact they created so many religions based on the primitive and the
heavenly, that these began to fuse with other belief systems, thereby creating even more
demonic cults. This
was how paganism was created and pantheism began, being the worship, as said before, of
the fallen angels, the djinn/Nephilim, and later on their human ancestors.
had always been a loyal remnant of Godly people.
These were later to become the Hebrews, then Israel and then the
Jews. And it is from the Jews, that
The Saviour of Mankind would be born. He
man we know as JESUS CHRIST. God
set HIS PLAN in motion with the man Abraham in UR of the Chaldeas (modern day
Iraq) in Babylonia. From there we
can see the devil's attempts to thwart GOD's PLAN to reconcile man back unto him.
So for 3-4 thousand years up until the birth of THE MESSIAH-JESUS CHRIST OF N AZARETH,
Satan had successfully broken the relationship between God and man, but Jesus
has restored it for those who believe in Him.
AZARETH, Satan had successfully broken the relationship between God and man, but Jesus has restored it for those who believe in Him.
people do not realise is there is a war going on.
The outcome has already been decided.
When JESUS was born and died and resurrected, HE paid the price for ALL
HUMANS to be RECONCILED TO GOD. All
they have to do is accept this sacrifice and believe in HIM.
They must also do their best to continue their lives avoiding all the
traps of Satan to lure them back into sin, but this is not easy.
He runs the place (earth) until JESUS returns to kick him off the planet.
And so until then, the war continues for the ultimate
dominion of the earth, and for the individual souls
of mankind, so they can be saved and NEVER WILL BE APART FROM GOD AGAIN. In order for anybody
to be SAVED from the Devil, his demons and HELL, they must do the following:
died on the cross, he gave instructions to His disciples to go into all the
nations of the world and preach the Good News - which is that The Devil has Lost,
and Humans can be Saved from Hell now because Christ has died in our place, so
we can LIVE with GOD in eternity in Paradise, as God had intended.
Not only that, we can become kings, priests and rulers, as reward for
our service to HIM. The Apostles were sent to make DISCIPLED BELIEVERS of all
those they met in foreign lands.
In order to empower the disciples and all those who believe in JESUS, they
would receive the gift of The Holy Spirit, which is the personage of GODS POWER
and SPIRIT, the very same that JESUS received in order to carry out His
means we can do miracles and great works like JESUS, and even greater, in order
to show that GOD's KINGDOM will be here soon, and this is just the TASTER.
More importantly that the devil's works of suffering, evil, misery, crime,
disease, sickness and all manner of sorcery, lies and depravity will be
destroyed. The Spirit of God is
available to anyone who will believe in JESUS. That He is the SON of GOD, and
died for our sins to be wiped out from GODS memory, and therefore that another
choice is now available to mankind:
This is the GOOD NEWS (Gospel):
This is the GOOD NEWS (Gospel):
JESUS, Accept Him as YOUR SAVIOUR and Be Born Again.
again, means being born of the Spirit of God, and so a new desire to be like
Christ and follow his teachings, the Bible and all the Laws and Commandments
come naturally. The ability to obey
them without effort or discomfort is given to those who have the Spirit.
But if we are double minded or non-committal we will always be
lukewarm about our conviction to devote ourselves to God's work.
The Devil can infiltrate ouir minds and hearts, if we do not WALK and TALK
in the WORD of GOD. We must act according to the Way in which JESUS told us to
Act, lest we become deceived again. But
not to fear, as GOD will assign angels to protect and guide those who have made
a choice but are struggling, to live the way GOD has said through His Son.
So, the Secret War is only a secret to those who are not in The Battle. In The Battle, some are on the frontline, some are in the middle, and some are at the rearguard. They know that the issue is the souls of men, women and children and their individual decisions to follow Christ and be SAVED. The Devil is roaring about like a lion, waiting to see whom he can devour. So what are the weapons that we must carry and use to protect ourselves from the enemy? These are only given once we have decided to be born again and follow Christ.
In the New
Testament of The Bible, we find the Armour that we dress for battle
with, in order to protect ourselves, and others, in fighting effectively for GOD and His
Commander, Our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.
Before His Triumphant Return to Earth, to wipe out all the evil of the
Devil and his coming false ruler (the AntiChrist), we must engage the enemy in
order to gain ground, make him retreat, and support our spiritual brothers and
The warriors that GOD has assigned to this task are Christians who fight,
not with weapons made by man, but with the weapon of The WORD of GOD who is
JESUS CHRIST (Hebrew-Yeshua hah Meshiach= Yeshua the Messiah).
For The WORD is Jesus name in heaven: The
WORD of GOD, and it is with this we defeat our enemy.
Below is the description of the essential armour that all Christians must wear to be protected from the enemy and all his demons, but also to FIGHT the enemy offensively. The best defence is Offence. An explanation of each is below;
my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put
on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of
the devil. 12For 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.
take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the
evil day, and having done all, to stand.
therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the
breastplate of righteousness;
your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the
fiery darts of the wicked.
take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of
always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto
with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
wiles of the devil: this means
all the deceptions, lies and tricks, as well as the spiritual, mental, emotional
and physical attacks of the Evil upon us, his enemy.
wrestle not against flesh and blood:
Our struggle is not with fellow human beings but against evil spirits working
for Satan. This means that this is a battle in the spirit realm, A spiritual battle
which we can only win with spiritual weapons, that can overpower the enemy.
And these are only given to us by JESUS CHRIST, our Commander.
Powers – another rank of fallen angel or demon that is very powerful.
Rulers of Darkness – another rank of demon that may be lower than the one above.
wickedness in high places –
this could be the messenger type of demon that
influences witches, warlocks, Satanists and Freemasons such as the
but could mean the Illuminati or Freemasons themselves as they are possessed.
These are beings that are in charge of doing the Devils work, (beings in the spiritual realm).
the armour to Withstand the Evil Day: Only
by having the full Armour can we get through evil times: This is The
Great Tribulation where the AntiChrist will rule and take over the planet with
the full power of Satan in his hands. This
means that Christians will have to flee or fight, or both, (if they have not
been raptured, as some believe will happen).
Stand: We must be strong and persevere, not giving way to cowardice, fear and intimidation, manipulations nor any political correctness that contradicts the Word of GOD. We must stand for our faith and against those Satan has sent against us, but only to resist the attack of the devil and not to focus on the human form of the attack. It manifests itself in many forms: external pressure from authorities, government, organisations, business, banking, media, friends, religions, economic pressures, slander, gossip, accusations, betrayals, spouses and family.
Attacks are from within the family and church as well as outside the family and church. In fact that is probably the most effective way to divide and conquer-from within the family and the church. Also, thoughts and emotions, which are not from you or GOD, but come from demons, illness or sickness are particularly malevolent. Repetitious fears are especially troublesome. The emphasis here is on NOT giving ground to the enemy, nor the attack, but to stand firm, be assertive and even offensive. Be of the mindset that you are not a victim defending, but are on the offensive, attacking and that the enemy is just counterattacking. You will counter-attack him with prayer and support from the Church, defeating anything that tries to resist your commitment to GOD and HIS SON. You focus on GOD's will, rather than resisting all of the devil's schemes. In order to do the LORD’s work, you must have the perspective and mindset to STAND FIRM, even in the face of terrible persecution, overwhelming and impossible dangers. When all the odds are against you, that is when YOUR FAITH will save you, and GOD's power will be felt or seen.
Speaking truth from your lips, and truth in your actions, not doing
things with ulterior motives, nor to gain respect nor popularity.
Truth gives you respect from your honesty and integrity.
The loincloth protects your private parts, so it is to do with the fact
that if you are not covered with truth, nor wearing the belt, your private parts
will be exposed. In other words, if
you lie, you will be shamed, exposed, lose your dignity and others will know you
lack integrity, when your lies have been found out.
So no gossiping, slander, accusations of innocent people.
But also to be courageous and noble and honourable.
A belt is a badge of beauty and so wear Truth like a Badge, and let no
lies pass from your lips. And let
Honesty be your badge. This means to be sincere in all you do and say.
This piece of armour protects your chest, which contains your heart and
lungs etc. The emphasis here is on
your heart, or your emotions: By being righteous in your heart, you will not
sin. But if you have issues of
envy, anger, hate, lust, etc, then it is very easy to sin.
The enemy knows this, so we must guard our emotions, and make sure that
they are passed through the filter of GOD's WORD and reject all emotions, which
may lead us into doing something sinful. We
must refuse to do anything that may be a result of wrong emotions.
It is the heart that we must protect above all else.
Also if we are hurt, we must guard against taking retaliatory or spiteful
actions to get revenge. Vindictive
behaviour is not conducive to being righteous.
It is a forgiving and kind heart full of love that does good, instead of
that which rewards evil with evil. Guard your heart, your emotions and always do what is right.
with the Sandals of Gospel of Peace: Walking
in the ways of Christ. Abiding by
His teachings and the Commandments that He gave: Also actively preaching the
gospel (good news) of the Salvation and Reconciliation of Man to GOD. Practicing what the Gospel says, in the spirit of Peace.
Walking and living your life in a peaceful way, in line with GOD's Word.
Effectively living your life as a “Saint”; an evangelising Peacemaker
of GOD. This is very hard to do, as
we all are tempted to Walk our OWN way or DOWN the WRONG PATH.
But if we are wearing the Sandals SHOD with the GOSPEL OF PEACE, then we
will not stray, nor seek to follow our own ways, but the WAY
of JESUS CHRIST. This is essential if we are not to be seduced by ambition and
pride, which leads to envy and hate. Nip
it in the bud by Abiding (walking and talking) with the WORD of GOD, having the
GOSPEL ever present in your mind, to protect yourself from straying, or
being distracted. Thankfully the
Voice of The GOOD SHEPHERD, can call us back to His arms of safety.
16: SHIELD OF FAITH…QUENCHING DARTS OF ENEMY:
This is the most important piece in our defence, I think. The reason being that without this piece we are pretty much exposed to the attack on the rest of our armour. The shield is carried in our hand covering the rest of our body, but it can be held anywhere in front of our body or above, or even at the sides and behind. So this means that the shield is our first line of defence. If this breaks down, the rest is our backup. But the shield has to be picked up, then it has to be used in an effective manner. There is no point holding it to the left when your enemy shoots to your right. You must be trained to use your faith efficiently for defence and offence.
The shield can be used
as a battering ram as you steadfastly march forward in your attack.
The enemy will attack you with his demonic attacks (darts), which are
like fiery arrows/darts. But the shield acts like water and quenches or
extinguishes them. If you lose
faith-drop your shield, you need to pick it up again.
You must know that your shield can get thicker stronger and larger, but
it only does this once used effectively to absorb the blows of the enemy and so
the stronger his attack, if you have faith, the more able you become in standing
your ground. This is why God allows
us to be tested, so our faith can grow stronger.
But we have to learn how to hang onto it with an iron grip! And not drop
it when the fiery arrows start to bombard us.
Shield is an offensive weapon to protect us from blows and ballistic weapons.
When the enemy thrusts at us, or hammers a heavy blow towards us, we
raise our shield and fend it off or absorb the blow, but we never drop it in the
middle of battle. We must carry it into battle and strengthen it.
We must take care of it and ensure that is has no cracks! If so, it will not protect us properly. So there should be no doubt in your mind about your Saviour
and His Love and forgiveness for you. This
knowledge-this belief-is what reminds us that we cannot be defeated by the
enemy, only by ourselves. We have
already won; all the enemy can do is trick us into believing otherwise.
So hold on to your faith brethren, and believe.
It’s not what you do, but what you believe that will protect you from
assault. Believe in GOD's protection and call on HIM for it.
of Salvation: This
is probably the most important piece of protective armour for not being totally
wiped out and defeated by the enemy. A
helmet protects your brain, your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, face, and of course
your MIND. Four of your senses are
held here, plus your ability to reason and think.
Also “…so a man thinketh, so he is”.
This means that your thoughts, which are the governing and ruling entity
of your being as regards what you believe, what you do and how you act, should be
nurtured in the way of the knowledge of Salvation.
Meaning, that your perspective should be of a person who knows he is
saved, and is grateful to GOD and to HIS SON, and wants to live their life in
acknowledgment of this gratitude by demonstrating that appreciation by living their
life for GOD, who has saved them from the abyss/hell.
this mindset will protect a person from veering off the path when the enemy
tries to seduce them via the senses with promises of pleasure or increased
respect, status and power, much like when JESUS was tempted in the wilderness by
the DEVIL. He tried to seduce JESUS
with the things that he perceived as being desirable in JESUS heart.
So must we protect ourselves with the WORD of GOD that should be in our
minds, which proves that we
are saved and can fight off the lies of the enemy when he tries to control our
minds. So filtering your thoughts
and actions through the WORD of GOD
We “must cast down all imaginations (thoughts and feelings) and anything that exalts itself…bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”. In other words, we must reject any thought that enters our minds that is a negative, sinful or demonic one. If anything does rest in our minds, it will grow into a weed. This weed will take root, and the stronger the root, the harder it is to UPROOT. Only GOD can provide the spiritual weed-killer, so to speak, that is the MIND of CHRIST and the Holy SPIRIT to destroy any weeds of the enemy. So we must not repeat thoughts in our head, which are not healthy nor righteous. Especially ones which foster pride, fear, envy, hate and lust. We must reject any thought which is totally irrational and not from us. Quoting the above scripture helps. Quoting all scripture aloud will send the demons packing. So protect your thought-life and remind yourself that you are saved constantly. The helmet of Salvation will also protect you from sensory seductions of the senses, because knowing that you are saved makes you NOT want to sin.
Sword of The SPIRIT, which is The WORD of GOD:
This is the
most offensive of all the Armour, and is the strongest weapon of our Battlesuit.
In fact it IS the WAY in which we deal with every attack.
It is the most long-range of our defences and also the weapon that clears the way for the rest of our
Armour to confidently engage the
enemy with. The WORD of GOD is The NAME of JESUS CHRIST in HEAVEN.
IT or HE IS the WEAPON! The
SWORD of THE SPIRIT is the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD that has been given to us through our
belief and surrender to Our LORD and MASTER JESUS CHRIST of NAZARETH.
Our belief that He is the Son of GOD and did come to earth in a fleshly
body, died and was resurrected and sits at GOD's right hand, is of paramount importance if we are to
receive any power from GOD. If we are to be protected from the enemy and all his
deceptions we MUST believe this.
Our faith energises the
SWORD, but the SWORD’s power comes direct from the SPIRIT of GOD, which fills
us full of FAITH. So the Shield and
the Sword work together to defend and attack simultaneously.
On the spiritual battlefield it’s the same principle as in the martial
arts of simultaneous parry and attack/defence and offence.
we quote scripture we are speaking our faith, manifesting the WORD of GOD, which
has POWER through our belief in JESUS CHRIST, and no enemy can stand against
this. It is the most powerful thing
a human being can ever have. It is
not magic, but can overcome any magic or sorcery, any demon or devil.
The power that the WORD of GOD-the Bible gives us is only present if our
Faith and Belief in JESUS CHRIST is TRUE, and the more we Believe, the more
powerful the SWORD of the SPIRIT. So
we must memorise scripture, or ask GOD to tell us what scripture to quote when
under attack, and going into battle. If
we have any attack directed towards us to any of our Armour, then quote
Scripture out loud and ACT on any FAITH you have, and it will make you
powerfully effective against the enemy.
most powerful thing you can do is to say "in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST" when you
command something to happen. He
is THE WORD of GOD, so combine your Scripture quote with the words; “in the
Name of JESUS CHRIST, I command...”, and you will see all earth
shake and hell tremble at the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. For there is no name greater under heaven or on earth, than
His NAME. So this is how
strongholds are broken down and demons flee at His NAME.
SWORD of the SPIRT is, in my opinion, also the SWORD that comes from JESUS mouth
in the Book of Revelations. Nothing can
withstand it. For it is The
MOST POWERFUL SPIRITUAL WEAPON in the universe. It can only be wielded by those who
believe in HIM and follow HIM. It is HIS OWN to GIVE, because JESUS gives it
to all who ask for it, and only those who are HIS, ask for it with BELIEF in
HIM, shall receive it. The POWER of
GOD is in the SPIRIT of GOD, which is the SWORD of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD
of GOD. The BIBLE is the weapon we
wield against the enemy. Use it and
win souls for JESUS, and protect yourself and others when the enemy comes in
like a flood.
Sword of The Spirit is the authority of Christ’s name through the WORD of GOD,
which is the scriptures-The HOLY BIBLE. MEMORISE
SCRIPTURE and USE it.
18Praying always with all prayer and
supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and
supplication for all saints:
always in all things and all events, no matter how minor nor how trivial with
all kinds of requests and on all occasions, and IN THE SPIRIT.
Meaning, be mindful of GOD, HIS WILL, HIS SON, and if you can, praying in tongues.
Pray for all your brethren; other Christians always, and demonstrate
perseverance = pray for ALL the church. This
means that we should combine the protectiveness of praying for each other in the
SPIRIT. Being full of the
SPIRIT-reading the WORD of GOD, talking to GOD, confessing our sins and asking
for the forgiveness of others sins also. Basically
praying in everything and for every other Christian to be protected from the
enemy, and for GOD to meet all the churches needs and requests, according to
prayer is a powerful attack on the enemy and his machinations.
When combined with other Christians and done in the SPIRIT, this provides
a powerful offensive and defensive weapon that we can use.
So it is essential that we use this daily in the war for the human race,
and to guard the church from evil. The
word perseverance is also translated as Be ALERT. So we must be ALERT for our
brethren. And pray for them at all
times, so we have a united defence and a united attack against our enemy.
The Secret of Christianity is not that there is a religion that helps people to be better persons, like most other religions claim to do. Nor does it provide a “path to the divine”, although it does. But that it is the ONLY WAY IN WHICH THE PLAN OF THE DEVIL TO DESTROY THE UNITY OF MAN TO GOD, HAS BEEN THWARTED. This PLAN of SATAN has been defeated by Christ, but the only thing that remains now, is the deciding of which humans will accept JESUS Sacrifice for them, be saved and reconciled to GOD, live in eternal paradise, or which humans will choose to reject CHRIST, spend eternity with the DEVIL and his fallen angels, the AntiChrist and all the other humans who did not want to LIVE in PEACE and UNITY with GOD.
In other words, those who
chose evil instead of GOOD. Those
who decided to choose what is good and evil, in their own eyes, will end up in
hell. For there is only one
standard of righteousness that GOD decides.
Only CHRIST has reached that standard, and so fulfilled the debt to
GOD, of which ADAM and EVE’s disobedience caused us to owe HIM, costing us our
Eternity in Paradise. But CHRIST has
restored that and all we have to do is accept this FREE GIFT and REPENT of our
sins, ACCEPT Him as Our SAVIOUR and REDEEMER, and Live our lives to please GOD and
you be one of those people? Right
NOW, is the time to decide. If you
already are, well done, and may God
grant you all His gifts and may you dress fully for Battle wearing the Armour of God,
and I will see you on the battlefield.
