By and large mankind has engaged in war throughout time. Conflicts. Oppression. Inability to see eye to eye. In fact, we are born into a world at war. Right now there is literally a struggle taking place which is beyond our imagination. It involves nations, centuries, and even souls.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6.12
If this is true (and we believe it is) it is important we 1) understand the nature of the conflict; 2) prepare ourselves for the battle this entails, and 3) fight this fight by God’s rules – so that we may be victorious.
There are two primary weapons for a spiritual warrior. There is our SHIELD of Faith. It is defensive in nature. It is meant to extinguish the fiery darts of the evil one. It keeps us from being pierced so deeply that our wounds keep us from turning our hearts toward our Captain. The second is the SWORD of the Spirit. With this weapon we are able to take ground, as well as protect ourselves and others.
The first resource below (Where the War is Fought) is meant as tools for teachers and families to open discussion into this vital subject. The War #1 and #2 takes it a little deeper if you wish to be prepared. After all, we are in a war, whether we acknowledge it or not.
“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” – Revelation 17.14
Peace through strength my friend! God’s strength.
