A Word for You...

When we talk about spiritual warfare, we must understand what it means.

Warfare is as noted in the dictionary, the activity of fighting a war or strongly competing. With reference to the way the fighting is done. (ex. Psychological warfare, nuclear warfare, economic warfare, spiritual warfare)

So we see there is in warfare some sort of opposition.

 Satan opposed God from the very beginning of time as he wanted to be equal with or greater than God. The patriarchs of old experienced opposition, namely Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Elijah, Daniel, Jeremiah, Nehemiah, and the list goes on and on. Therefore you and I also will experience opposition, but we know that The Lord has and is making ways for us too to overcome the attacks of the enemy. The scripture in 1 Peter 4:12 "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you as though some strange thing happened unto you". You are not the only one who has or ever will be challenged in your lifetime. Remember what God said to Elijah when he thought he was the only one left and was targeted by the enemy who taunted, threatened, and agonized him. In 1 Kings 19: 18 the Lord spoke to Elijah" Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him". My brothers and sisters, let me tell you that there are others still maintaining their integrity as did Job, despite the attacks of the enemy.

Oftentimes we become afraid, discombobulated, discouraged, reluctant, disinclined, disheartened, and perplexed because we don't understand why we encounter opposition, who or what is opposing us, or what we can do about it.

Well let's discuss some of these questions a little further to deepen our comprehension and perception of spiritual warfare.

Knowing the enemy is paramount in spiritual warfare. Many people presume that if there is opposition, then surely someone is trying to thwart your chances of success or happiness. Well the scripture delineates who the enemy of God and man is , as it is the same. In 1 Peter 5: 8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." Matthew 13:39 tells us again "The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels."

So you see, Satan wants you to think your brother or sister is the enemy and with this belief, he (the devil) keeps dissention, and strivings going on between people causing man to destroy each other. Understand then , this is the character of the devil. The bible describes him in Revelations 12:10 as the accuser of the brethren. In John 8:44 he is called the father of lies and a murderer.

This gives us a better understanding then that mankind is not specifically your enemy. It is "the spirit that worketh in the children of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2).
