Spiritual Warfare is conflict being waged in the invisible spiritual realm that is
being manifested in the physical realm.
Spiritual warfare is more than binding the enemy in Jesus name. It is forgiving those who oppose you, offend, hurt, or persecute you. Also it involves forgiving, blessing others and trusting God to avenge you.
I Timothy 1:18
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies
previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.
II Timothy 2:2-4
And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
II Corinthians 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not 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.
Spiritual Warfare In The Garden – Genesis 3:1-6
Eve has a conversation with Satan through the serpent on his terms.
Satan through questions trapped Eve to doubt God’s character of his goodness.
Then Eve eventually doubted and denied God’s Word .
The stage was set for Eve at that point.
1. She yielded to her imagination
2. She willfully disobeys God.
3. She leads Adam to join her.
To obtain victory in any war a strategy is needed. You will need a strategy that will
enable you to engage and be effective in Spiritual Warfare.
Strategy is the systematic arrangement of independent plans working in harmony
with each other, to accomplish a predetermined objective.
II Timothy 2:1-4, Ephesians 6:10-17, II Corinthians 10:3-5
