 Re: What is spiritual warfare?

Brother,

That is a good question, to start with here is a list of sermons on the topic of Spiritual Warfare: https://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/scr_index.php?act=topicSermons&topic=Spiritual%20Warfare&page=0

Perhaps listening to a few of these will help you in your understanding for this area of christian life.

here is a short devotional by A.W. Tozer on this subject:

---

Spiritual Warfare and Sin
To be entirely safe from the devil's snares the man of God must be completely obedient to the Word of the Lord. The driver on the highway is safe, not when he reads the signs but when he obeys them. That Incredible Christian, 51.

Spiritual Warfare and Sin: Satan's Strategy

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. --Ephesians 6:13

Now I do not think that Satan much cares to destroy us Christians physically. The soldier dead in battle who died performing some deed of heroism is not a great loss to the army but may rather be an object of pride to his country. On the other hand the soldier who cannot or will not fight but runs away at the sound of the first enemy gun is a shame to his family and a disgrace to his nation. So a Christian who dies in the faith represents no irreparable loss to the forces of righteousness on earth and certainly no victory for the devil. But when whole regiments of professed believers are too timid to fight and too smug to be ashamed, surely it must bring an astringent smile to the face of the enemy; and it should bring a blush to the cheeks of the whole Church of Christ.
The devil's master strategy for us Christians then is not to kill us physically (though there may be some special situations where physical death fits into his plan better), but to destroy our power to wage spiritual warfare. And how well he has succeeded. The average Christian these days is a harmless enough thing. Godknows.
He is a child wearing with considerable self-consciousness the harness of the warrior; he is a sick eaglet that can never mount up with wings; he is a spent pilgrim who has given up the journey and sits with a waxy smile trying to get what pleasure he can from sniffing the wilted flowers he has plucked by the way. That Incredible Christian, 72.

"Oh God, may I never be 'a harmless enough thing,' 'a child wearing...the harness of the warrior,' 'a sick eaglet,' 'a spent pilgrim.' Give me grace to fight valiently. Amen."

 Re: What is spiritual warfare?


2 cor 10:3-6 is the foundation. It all begins in our thought life and if we allow our thought life to go uncheck it will lead to deeper things.

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

John

 Re:

This is also spiritual warfare

Romans 12:2

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.



So often segments of the church like to put more emphasis on demon possession and that devil is around every corner but spiritual warfare begins in the thoughtlife. Be apathetic on that front and you will sucummb to the things of the world including demonic oppression

Also:

2 Timothy 2:23-26 -

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. 24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Philippians 4:8 -

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 Re:

The basis of all spiritual warfare is that Christ has won the victory and has destroyed the works of the devil, and now we stand in His victory declaring the name of Jesus and the blood of the Lamb Against every attack from the evil one.
