50 Spiritual warfare is not against flesh and blood, not about who is right and who is wrong but is one of maintaining the sanctity of one’s temple, holy and set aside for God. Kingdom Warfare is about keeping unity in the temple, focusing on the well-being of the kingdom.

51 Critical decision: Is it more important that I’m right or is it more important that I have a right standing before God?

58 Satan a Deceiver He lied to Adam and Eve He lied to Adam and Eve He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him.

And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” Matthew 5:33-37 'Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.

67 Spiritual Effects of Inner Vows Because the vows are of the evil one, when we make the vows, we are giving the enemy the right to help us ‘keep’ it. But it gives him knowledge of what to use to trigger us so we can break it. Because the vows are of the evil one, when we make the vows, we are giving the enemy the right to help us ‘keep’ it.

Win, Win situation for the enemy. Win, Win situation for the enemy.

68 Some of the vows seem like good things. Ex: Father is abusive so the child vows to “never be like dad.” However, it is out of a self righteous judgment and rely on one’s own ability to accomplish something instead of allow God to guide and direct the path and behaviors. It may actually cause the person to be an overly lenient parent who cannot discipline his/her own child. Or grow up to be unable to confront people when needed.

You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ [h] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

83 He says turn your "left" cheek. So if someone hits you an the right it would be an insult slap because they would be using their backhand as they used their right hand for this and their left hand for sanitary things. If they presented their "left" cheek then the aggressor would be in two minds whether to hit or not as it would become a forehand hit which would constitute an assault and they would get arrested for it, so Jesus is saying to the person "Now I'm in control" so really turn the other cheek is using a non violent way of getting the upper hand, it is not letting people walk over you at all. (interesting view point I found online.)

93 Reports to the king that the Jews are rebelling. (6:6- 7) Confronts them with truth when the issue was presented to him. No preemptive strike.

101 Myth: I’ll use this protection until God shows up. A little protection is better than none. “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand… 26 If Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but [l] he is finished! 27 But no one can enter the strong man’s house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.

And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.” Matt 12:43-5 Illusion that God has not done His job.

104 Prayer Connect with God Connect with God Abba, thank You that You are the just God. Holy, never changing, Defender of Righteousness, I ask you to take Your rightful place on the throne. I present myself to you. I confess that I have entered into an alliance with the Accuser of the Brethren. I have self-righteously judge people, myself and others with the accusations from the Accuser. (List some attributes of people that comes to mind.

Forgive me for letting the enemy reside in my mind and my heart. I now break (clap) any contracts and agreement with the Accuser and renounce my need of this tape recorder. This negativity and preemptive strike does not provide me protection in a godly way. I ask for Your Holy judgment order to evict the Accuser and his forces from their residence in me. I say to them by the power of the Blood of Christ and testimony of my word that it is true that death has been overcome by the cross that “the Lord rebuke you, Satan”. (repeat as many

107 times as you want till you fill a release. Can also speak it directly over areas of the body that has been in bondage— ear gate, eye gate, mouth etc. Speak release to areas where your body feels tight.) Holy Spirit, come and sweep clean every place that has been vacated and release peace and Your residence. Holy Spirit what do you want me to know?
