“Fight the good fight of faith,…” 1 Timothy 6:12
The Apostle Paul is talking to his young protégé Timothy and teaching him about spiritual warfare just as the Lord has led me to teach about spiritual warfare on this website.
If Paul was talking to Timothy about 2,000 years ago about spiritual warfare can you imagine how much more pertinent it is even today?

I have been studying Bible prophecy for many years and I have heard for some time that some of the best prophecy Bible scholars in the world have said this: There is not one more thing that needs to be fulfilled prophectically before Jesus Christ comes back for the rapture of the Church.
I hear the call from some of the most godly powerful men and women of God say, “get ready.”
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” 2 Timothy 3:1
Then it goes on to say what many men and women will be like in the very last days, governments and even churches around the world. It is indeed an ugly picture. Please read 2 Timothy 3:2-8.
My point, I’m sure everyone can see how the morality of this world among many has gone down the sewer. The hate and lust in people’s hearts like never before and their conscience seared with a hot iron. Beyond feeling.
As you can see the Apostle Paul had a lot to say about what would be happening in the very days that you and I are living in.
THEREFORE IF WE EVER NEEDED TO GET A SPIRITUAL REVELATION FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT AS TO WHAT THE ARMOUR OF GOD THAT THE LORD IS TALKING ABOUT IN EPHESIANS 6:10-18 IT IS NOW.
I challenge you to mediate on all of these teachings about spiritual warfare. It can save you a lot of unnecessary sorrow and could even save your life.
Satan and his fallen angels (demonic beings) are out to kill, steal and destroy all of mankind like never before. John 10:10
I have come into confrontation with satan before and have him speak to me out of a demon possessed person.
The first thing that the demon spoke out of that person’s mouth was to try to see if I knew who I was in Christ Jesus as the he said: “WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?” I TOLD THE DEMON, “I AM A SON OF THE LIVING GOD AND SATAN YOU COME OUT OF HER IN JESUS NAME.”
How do I know it was a presence of a demon, because it was like a eerie rough voice, not the voice of that woman and I could sense the presence of demonic beings in her.
That taught me a powerful lesson, satan will always try to see if you know who you are in Christ Jesus or if your just a wanna be. You may be saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit and still not know who you really are in Christ Jesus. That’s another reason why I believe that the Lord led me to do this teaching, it is desperately needed among the Body of Christ.
Some Christians just use mental assent into saying that they believe and understand the armour of God and other spiritual principles but do not really understand and believe them. So they become intimidated by satan and end up backing down and getting ripped off.
So let’s start looking at this powerful armour of God piece by piece and see what it is and why it is so vitally important to you.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.”
As I stated before we have to be strong in His might through spiritual warfare because in our might we are helpless against satan and his demonic beings. They are spiritual beings and you cannot beat them with physical means. Satan and his demonic beings can only be defeated by God’s spiritual armour that He has given to every born again believer.
But God will not make you use the armour, it’s there for you but like everything we receive from God He will never make you do anything. God honors your free moral will.
But that verse is making a positive statement to you and me. First of all notice our Lord is talking to you, you are the brethren, right? Then He states you can be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. So get a picture of this, His power and His might are working through us if we understand it and team up with it. Amen?
Jesus is building His Church right now made up of born again believers from all over the world and He made a mighty statement that the gates of hell will NOT prevail over His Church.
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Jesus is telling us to put the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD and then Jesus makes a promise if you do put on the whole armour of God you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
I just looked up Ephesians 6:11 as I wanted to see a good different translation.
Here is New Living Translation (NLT) which I believe is a good translation of the Bible.
“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all the STRATEGIES of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 NLT
Notice in the King James Version that I normally teach with it says WILES but in the NLT is says STRATEGIES of the devil. I think strategies is a better word for us to understand instead of the word wiles of the devil.
Satan uses strategies against us. You have to remember that our Bible gives us an account that satan in the form of a snake was in the Garden of Eden tempting Adam and Eve to rebel against God. That was approximately 6,000 years ago from the start of Adam and Eve to now. Satan has been watching and dealing with mankind around the world since that time and he has learned a lot.
He has knowledge and knows tricks but he still will be defeated by what God has given us in spiritual warfare called the armour of God once we get a revelation from the Lord of what the armour of God is and how we use it. I will go more into that next week and continue on with the 6th Chapter of Ephesians.
You see I can teach and teach but my Bible teaching and all Bible teaching requires a revelation from the Holy Spirit before the proverbial light will come on.
The spiritual revelation from the Holy Spirit comes after you have a hunger and thirst for God’s Word and ask Him for revelation knowledge. THEN you really get a God breathed revelation of what the Word of God is really talking about.
IT BECOMES A RHEMA WORD OF GOD TO YOU. (The written Word of God spoken in a personal way to you so that you really understand it on a spiritual level).
We will continue with this teaching next Monday.

HAS THIS WEBSITE HAS BEEN A BLESSING TO YOU?
PLEASE CONSIDER PRAYING FOR THIS MINISTRY THAT THE LORD HAS CALLED NITA AND I TO AND CONSIDER SUPPORTING THIS MINISTRY FINANCIALLY ON A REGULAR BASIS SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO GO OUT AND MINISTER WHEREVER THE LORD LEADS US.
FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE NEVER ASKED THE PRECIOUS LORD JESUS IN YOUR LIFE TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THE BIBLE SAYS IF THOU SHALL CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND SHALL BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD (EASTER), YOU SHALL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD) AND WITH YOUR MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION. ROMANS 10:9-10
