Every day is intense spiritual warfare, that is why every day we must wear the whole armor of God. The world is in it's darkest hour now, and the war is tougher than ever. But the hope is that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

For me personally, every day, I go to battle, or the battle comes to me first thing in the morning upon opening my eyes, I have encountered it. I have always unendingly had strong attacks from the enemy.. But a person who does not take up his cross and follow God will hardly even know what warfare is as the devil knows he already has him or her, and they are no threat to him or his kingdom.
---Whisper on 11/25/08


Spiritual warfare? Always on the battlefront lines, whether shooing satan away from my mind, or praying over my city for God to remove the strongholds in our churches, in our families, in indiviuals. Eph 6 armor of God. Praying continually and not giving up, not giving in, standing on the rock and shedding many tears in intercesson. O yeah.

Yes, when my daughter had cancer I battled very hard for her. We won battles but only God can have the victory! Man got in the way of her healing. Spiritual warfare is very real!! God gave me my armor to put on for the battle.

I work in one of the many public schools in this country that has pushed prayer and Bible reading out the door. The school is filled with children who are living in single parent homes (either dad or mom left), who are being raised by grandparents because their parents can't, they are hungry, abused, neglected and so on. They come to school without any Bible training of any kind or any knowledge of Jesus. I would say that is one heck of a spiritual war I fight every day.

Absolutely.....No doubt about it...

A wise man scales the city walls of the mighty and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.
Proverbs 21:22

Nicolette. Jesus was the Perfect sacrifice and there was found NO SIN in Him.

Ephesians chapter six, speaks of spiritual warfare. Blessings to you.
---Whisper on 10/26/07


nicollette: Luke 22:37
NAS: "For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, 'AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH TRANSGRESSORS', for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment."
KJV: For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
PS: sorry if you felt I was condescending. Not my intention. Interesting subject though.

nicolette:KJV:Philippians 2:5-8"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." nicolette:this is what it meant to "number himself among the transgressors."
---j._the_nomad on 10/26/07




Hello Nomad. Hope you're well today. I am frazzled by a statement you made (perhaps I am misunderstanding). Are you saying that Jesus counted himself as a transgressor? If so, this surprises me. What I understand is that he had to be 'the perfect man' to justify the sacrafice he made of being a ransom for the sins of mankind - otherwise he may as well have died to pay for his own sins. Forgive me if I am mistaken. I am sure my question must seem painfully elementary to you.

The Lord and the devil are fighting for our soul's
---Betty on 10/26/07


(continued)
First of all spirits or demons, if you will are not as powerfull as we might think. The battlefeild seems to be the mind. At least thats how it was whenever i was under attack.I mean if the spirits could move furniture or anything wouldnt my funiture be all over the place? But it's not! If they could knock me down would i be on my back, yes. Am I ? No
The realm of the spiritual attack is more fear, anger worry, depression and the like.
---imahoosoever on 10/25/07


(continued)
And the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.They are first a love of God our Saviour Jesus Christ and NO demon or pricipality can stand against the BLOOD OF CHRIST.Of course too there are those that come out by prayer and fasting. We in the war intuitvely know who they are and then we pray, fast and PLEAD THE BLOOD OF CHRIST!

Cindy,

Recently a couple in our church called me over to discuss scriptures. As the woman began asking questions she became more and more angry. She confronted me about things she disagreed with in the bible. I felt like I was in a spiritual battle. Afterwards I went home, but that night was unable to sleep. Finally in the wee hours of the morning I woke up my wife and asked her to pray for me. As she prayed I was able to relax. I have never had an experience like that before.

Cindy,(continued):

The Apostle Paul tells us
Eph 6:12 For 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.

I believe him. How about you?

Lord bless you,

Then, nicolette, having cleaned our own backyard, if you will, and armed with a full knowledge of exactly what we're dealing with and exactly who we are in Christ. Then we can move in the Holy Spirit in warfare on behalf of others as God leads. Other tools of Spiritual warfare are the laying on of hands and annointing oil. There is alot of power in this kind of prayerlife. Seek Him first Nicolette.
---imhoosoever on 10/25/07


nicolette, you ask really good questions. The Bible speaks for itself on the matter of spiritual warfare, perhaps somebody can quote chapter and verse, its all there.
i can relate my own experience.

nicollette we all serve smebody. What or whom do you serve?
---Andrea on 10/25/07


nicolette: I'm big on embracing sinners (and I number myself among the transgressors as even Jesus, who was perfect, did). Your other questions? It seems to be both. Although, I don't know to what degree, and I don't claim to battle any of this in my own strength, nor do I suggest it. However, it seems the most tiresome thing is living in a fallen world with homesickness for heaven. And I think some are trying to battle devils, when many times homesickness is the real problem.

Absolutely Cindy and most of the time it is not just one storm, but several at the same time. The main thing to remember is to keep your eyes focused on our Lord and Savior jesus Christ. Rest in Him for the battle is the Lord's. When we get our focus off of God, we start making choices on this journey that we are on that result in negative outcomes. Study His word, and definitely PRAY! Our Lord will carry us through the storms and it is because of His strength that we are victorious! God Bless..

nomad: Hello. You distinguish between sinners and saints. Haven't all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God - hence the necessity of your Messiah? This is what your bible says. Are you referring to believers and "unbelievers"? And what is the meaning of "spiritual warfare"? Does this imply that people do battle with entities of the spiritual realm? Or that people do battle with elements that influence the spiritual realm like principles, mindsets and mentalities?
---nicolette on 10/25/07


I've definitely experienced spiritual warfare. However, both sinners and saints experience difficulty. Funny how sinners don't always blame the devil. Really, much of our battle lies in yearning for heaven while living in a fallen world. We blame Satan too often when many times our experiences are common to all men. We shouldn't carry on long conversations with Satan. Submit to God, rebuke the devil, and he must flee.
---j._the_nomad on 10/23/07


Every single day. Some days it seems off and on all day long. I do all I know to do, and it is working, cause I am still on the journey. Praise God.

Yes, whisper, right when I wake up, the attack begins to have me first thinking about issues and people I am relating with...versus first my attention being to God. Even before thinking about prayer, I understand I need first to submit to God (James 4:7). And so, the first spiritual warfare, I'd say, for me, each day, is to hold my peace while You fight the battle (Exodus 14:14) IN me to bring me and my attention to You, then see how You create our day to share (((o:

I believe that if you are a christian, then you will have spiritual warfare--Daily. The warfare begins in your mind and that's where satan loves to attack. I have to cast down strongholds, imaginations, judgemental thoughts, etc. If you don't experience spiritual warfare, then satan already has you. That's why you need to know all the Word that you can, so you can cast down those thoughts and strongholds.
---Angela on 10/22/07


regularly. I beleive it is a calling. There must be an awareness of the spiritual world around you and some discerning of spirits to be truly effective, but the more effective Satan is in your life and your loved ones the more you need to do battle in the spirit.
---Andrea on 10/22/07


Yes. Paul said it best when he said, "When I do good, evil is always present". You can bet that when your on fire for God and your obeying him, Satan is going or will be doing something to get your mind off of him. He will put situations in your way, stumbling blocks, anything he can he will use for his advantage, he will. But I've learned to stand firm on God's holy word. Because that is the only thing that gets me through.
