2 Todays topic... SPIRITUAL WARFARE

3 The Struggle... [O]ur struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)

4 Opening Thoughts... For the Christian, this world is an arena, not an armchair. (John Blanchard) The Christian life is not a playground; it is a battleground. (Warren Wiersbe)

5 Opening Thoughts... Our journey is uphill, with a dead body upon our backs, the devil doing what he can to pull us down. (Philip Henry)

6 Suit Up! Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground. (Ephesians 6:13)

7 Armor of God Without the Belt of Truth, everything else falls down (v. 14) Without the Breastplate of Righteousness, our hearts are vulnerable (v. 14) Without the Shoes of Peace, we cant stand firm (v. 15)

8 Armor of God Without the Shield of Faith, were defenseless against the evil ones flaming arrows (v. 16) Without the Helmet of Salvation, weve got no hope of survival (v. 17) Without the Sword of the Spirit, weve got no offense (v. 17)

9 The Battle Plan [P]ray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18)

10 Never Ever Fear [N]either death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

11 Pray! The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray. (Samuel Chadwick)
