WE MUST FIGHT! We are soldiers of war and must prepare for the battle ahead of us. We don’t go to war like the unbelievers; our fight is not against flesh and blood. Those who fight physically are doing so because of the lies they believe; they are tools of the devil. Don’t get caught up in his scheme; it will only soil your reputation. It may appear that we are surrounded because the noise that the enemy makes is deafening, but remember, it’s just a sound. The truth is, the ones who are for us outnumber those against us. We have a two-thirds majority fighting for us in the heavenly realm. Relax, God has this under control, and we will prevail! There are some steps you MUST take to prepare yourself for this fight; these steps are not optional!
- Stand firm in your faith. Conquer unbelief.
- Repent and turn away from sin
- Read your Bible
- Trust God
- You must be saved through faith in Jesus.
- Listen to the Holy Spirit
By doing these things, you will be putting on the whole armor of God and will have the strength to fight and resist the flaming darts thrown by the devil. Do not neglect any of these steps! We need everyone in the battle against the schemes of the enemy.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Ephesians 6:12-13
