We used to live right next to the DFW airport. Airplanes were taking off, landing, and flying right over our home all of the time.
When guests would come to our house they would often ask if we had that airplane noise all the time. I would respond, “I guess, I never really notice.” When I slowed down and listened, those planes were loud.
In last Sunday’s message I touched on the spiritual battle we are in all the time. You can see notes and message here .. Five Things Every Christian Should Know.
The apostle Paul wrote: “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world..” Eph 6:12
When you first become a Christian you can really feel the intensity of the battle. Its as if the devil has upped his attack because you have moved into a relationship with God.
As we go along in our faith, if we don’t stay aware of the battle, we forget it’s there. Like the planes, we don’t sense the activity that is going on around us all the time.
This Sunday I am teaching a message I am calling “Battle Ready“. The Bible warns us that the devil is powerful, and has so many evil strategies he uses to go after us to keep us disconnected from and disobeying God. He wants us to be unaware of him and the evil around us.
You have to know your enemy to defeat him. In order to defeat a powerful spiritual power, you have to be connected to the “All Powerful” Spirit of God.
Bring a friend Sunday for a very interesting look at the strategies of the devil as recorded in the Bible. Then we will look at the weapons a believer has to defeat the enemy daily in this ongoing life and death battle for the souls of humanity.
Are you Battle Ready? I hope to see you Sunday.
May God Bless you more than you could ever imagine.
