TOOLS FOR SPIRITUAL WARFARE Ephesians 6:10-18 Margaret Lepke ~ Please click to forward slides at your own leisure
EPHESUS NEEDED SPIRITUAL WARFARE
Stand up Stand up for Jesus Ye soldiers of the cross Lift high His royal banner It must not suffer loss From vict’ry unto victr’y His army shall he lead Till ev’ry foe is vanquished And Christ is Lord indeed! WE, TOO, NEED TO STAND UP FOR JESUS!
BELIEVERS ARE EQUIPPED FOR WARFARE Their Position is Secure in Christ Their Action Plan is Ordained by God and Solid Chosen by the Father Redeemed by the Son Sealed by the Spirit Lifted from death to life Be united (no cracks in the collective armor) Help all believers become mature warriors Make known God’s manifold wisdom Declare it to principalities and powers in heavenly places Put on the whole armor of God Always pray!
Eph.6:10 PAUL URGED THE EPHESIANS TO… Be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might And put on the WHOLE armor of God…
…That you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil! WHY? Eph.6:11
Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against Principalities Powers Rulers of the darkness of this age Spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places Eph.6:12 CHRISTIAN WARFARE IS SPIRITUAL
2 Corinthians 10:4 THEREFORE GOD’S ARMOR IS SPIRITUAL The weapons of our warfare are not worldly, But mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. A biblical truth Given to us by God Made powerful and effective by God – if… We know, understand, and ACT on it Suited for both defensive and offensive tactics EACH PIECE OF THIS ARMOR IS…
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Eph.6:13
Stand therefore having girded your waist with TRUTH
Having put on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS
And having shod your feet with the preparation of the GOSPEL of PEACE Eph.6:15
Above all, taking the shield of FAITH with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of SALVATION = DELIVERANCE
And the SWORD of the SPIRIT which is the WORD OF GOD Eph.6:17
PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit; Being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Eph.6:18 AND ABOVE ALL – PRAY!
Standing on the promises of Christ my King Through eternal ages let His praises ring Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing Standing on the promises of God Chorus: Standing – standing Standing on the promises of God my Savior Standing – standing I’m standing on the promises of God. FINALLY, Stand on the Promises of God
Margaret Lepke ~ I pray that you are wearing your full armour, and that you are ready to do spiritual battle whenever and wherever the enemy of your soul attacks… Ephesians 6:10-18
