Spiritual Warfare 1, (Bible Ref: Ephesians 6:10-18), Apst. Monty Abraham New Glory Assembly, Bayelsa State.
Summary of Sunday Sermon
Topic: Spiritual Warfare 1
Bible Ref: Ephesians 6:10-18
When we talk about Spiritual Warfare, some people think it’s to do dry fasting and prayers. Your knowledge and understanding of the word of God determine your freedom. When you do not know the word of God your freedom is limited.
As a Believer the devil will always try to attack you, but you have to be strong in the Lord, because your life is in Him.
May the Power of God be made available for you and your family in the name of Jesus.
The only weapon Satan can use to attack you is deceit; because he is the father of all lies, and he has been lying right from the beginning. Satan will do things to deceive you so that you will lose your confidence, and not believe who you are in Christ Jesus.
Spiritual Warfare is not a fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world. There are powers that rule families, compounds, communities, streets, states, nations and continents; these are the powers we are dealing with, because they do not want you to prosper and succeed in life, in marriage, in business, and in whatever you lay your hands to do. That’s why you need to put on the Whole Armour of God, so that you can withstand the wiles of the devil, and be able to stand strong in the evil day.
Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
In Ephesians 6:14, ” Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness”.
The ‘Truth’ that you need to guide your waist is ‘Jesus’. Jesus says, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’ And the Bible says, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free, and also, who the son of man has set free is free indeed.
You need the breastplate of Righteousness to cover your Vital Spiritual Organs.
Righteousness is to be on a right standing with God.
The Bible says, we all have sin and fall short of the glory of God, but if anyone accepts Jesus Christ, old things have passed away and all things have become new. The Righteousness of Jesus has been imputed on him. Jesus is our righteousness.
Ephesians 6:15,” And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;”
Anybody who cannot have peace with man can not have peace with God. When you have Christ in you, you have peace of mind, you will not look at what is happening, even in the midst of calamity you are calm. When they say there is a casting down, you shall say there is a lifting up, because you know who you are in Christ Jesus. And when your confession is positive you are not moved by what you see, hear or feel, you are only moved by the word of God. Jesus is our peace that passes human understanding. He is the Prince of Peace.
In conclusion, Spiritual Warfare is not about wrestling against flesh and blood, but by knowing Jesus. By knowing Him you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
