There is a lot of debate about firearms in the United States. With multiple mass shootings each year, many are crying out for the abolition of guns, while others say they have the right to defend themselves. As a Christian, you don’t fight with manufactured weapons because the war you are in is spiritual. Are you properly armed to fight this battle?
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”
In the Midst of a War
We exist in the middle of a spiritual battle. Most Christians are unaware, and others deny its existence. Do so at your own expense. God is using you to reflect the light of Jesus into a dark world, and Satan is doing everything he can to stop it. If you walk out your front door each morning unaware or ill-prepared, you will be blindsided by the constant attacks of the enemy. You need to properly arm yourself with the right battle gear and weapons to fight this war.
As a Christian, you live a dual existence. You walk in the flesh, which means you live your daily life, while at the same time you wage war in the heavens. What works here on earth aren’t useful in the spiritual battles. You need to arm yourself with the divine. It starts with filling your heart and mind with God’s Word, followed by an active prayer life and the implementation of these “divine weapons” like fasting, discernment, and such.
Are You Properly Armed
Are you properly armed? Satan is trying to destroy and devour you. Put on your spiritual armor, equip yourself with the Sword and the Spirit, and trust God to lead you. Don’t be blindsided. Be on your guard like the builders during Nehemiah’s time. They built the wall with their swords strapped to their sides.
