It’s not a question of whether or not we need spiritual weapons. It’s a necessity if we want to survive on planet earth in these end times!
Let’s discuss some of the spiritual weaponry God has given us to be overcomers. We’ll start with His Word.
Romans 1:16 (KJV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
The Word of God is our most foundational weapon against the wiles of the devil. God’s Word has every answer we’ll ever need and it works every time. But, it has to be accompanied by faith. Just quoting God’s Word won’t get you the desired results if it’s not mixed with faith. But, when it’s mixed with faith, it has dynamite power to accomplish whatever is needed.
Of course, in order to speak God’s Word into the situation, you must know God’s Word, and that takes time, effort, and diligence. Then when you come up against a situation, God’s Word will come up out of your spirit to handle the problem.
Philippians 2:9-10 (KJV) 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Next, I want to look at the Name of Jesus. His name is above every name that is named and everything has a name: cancer, drug addiction, diabetes, mental and emotional issues, etc. Everything that has a name has to bow to the name of Jesus, if we command it in faith. There’s that faith again!
So, what is this faith that is so necessary for everything to work? Simply put, faith is believing that what God has said is true and then acting on that. And as Andrew Wommack says, “Faith is our positive response to what God has already given us by His grace.”
What we see is that in order for God’s Word to work on our behalf, we must use our faith and believe that what He has said is true and then take Him at His Word. It’s really not hard but “religion” has made it seem nearly impossible.
We’ll continue on spiritual weaponry next time.
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
James 4:7 (KJV) 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
