Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 8)

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE 006

How prayer can defeat your enemy

Good Morning My Dear Brothers and Sisters; in our lesson this week on “preparing for Spiritual warfare”, we examine for you, “How prayer can defeat your enemy!”  It is so important that we learn how to fight and win this battle using the weapons that God has provided for us and stop trying to use the devil’s own weapon because they are built for him and his evil spirits and they will fail us every time.  So let’s get in the game and learn how to use the most potent weapon in our  warfare and that is the weapon of prayer.

The Lord wants each one of us to become Spiritual Fit, preparing our minds as well as our physical bodies to fight and win.  He wants us to be rooted and grounded in his word.  He wants us to stop allowing satin to brain wash us and become totally spiritually fit to serve him.  He stands ready to prepare us for this Spiritual warfare game that is upon us.

Once again, you see that the bible commands us to, “Take

thehelmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”  (Ephesians 6:17-18). 

You see when you have the word of God in you; God puts the ultimate weapon in your hand to fight the enemy.  The word of God becomes your sword.  Your enemy cannot stand against you in anyway, for God’s word will cut like a two edged sword, cutting to the right and to the left giving you power to defeat the enemy.

Know that you must always be in prayer, for it is through prayer that you have a direct phone line to God.  You can call him up any time.  He stands ready to help you defeat his greatest enemy called satin.  Pray for each other and your prayers shall be heard.  In Luke 6:28, the bible instructs us to, “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 the bible instructs us to Pray without ceasing.  Having a proper prayer life will guide you successfully through your spiritually fitness.

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 1 of 4)

We fight to overcome many difficult battles in life and most we lose because we go into battle unprepared to take on our adversary.  However, our adversary come prepared to win the battle.  He knows that if he is unprepared physically you will beat him with your physical strength.  He also knows if he has not condition his mind to win the battle, you will beat him mentally and physically.

And finally he knows that in order for you to win, you must have faith in your God, believing on the name Jesus and that Jesus will see you through to the end because he said in his word that he would never leave or for sake you.  Satin knows all that you know and he is prepared to use your own tools against you if you are not prepared to think on your feet and act quickly to adjust your original battle plans.

Therefore, preparing yourself for the spiritual warfare that is upon you, is the single most important thing you can do today.  In Ephesians 6:12, it says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  Now let us consider; If it were only flesh and blood we were fighting against, perhaps the battle would be much easier. However, we are wrestling against unforeseen powers that operate without boundaries or the same rules that we play by.

We know that Satin is an enemy of God.  We know that he is a fallen angel, and he knows the word of God just as well as we do.  We know that Satin is always sitting traps to snare us into them.  We further know that Satin is always prepared to fight and win each battle he enters into.

Therefore knowing these things, what must we do? The very first thing is to make up your mind that you are going to become a soldier on the battlefield for the Lord.  It is time to stop straddling the fence.  It is time to become obedient and put on the whole amour of God.  It is time to prepare for the battle by becoming, physical fit, mentally fit, and finally spiritually fit.

Yes, my brethren, you must be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  No longer can you just go alone just to get alone.  The battle has moved into our homes, into our schools, into our churches.  Satin is destroying the family.  The schools have become Satins play ground and the churches his past time.  Satin is all around, enjoying himself and making us all look like clowns.

Now listen to what the Holy word tells us, it says, “Stand therefore, having your lions girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace:  This we must do and do now if we ever expect to win the battle against Satin.  (Ephesians 6:14)” In Jesus name, let us fight a good fight.  Let us prepare ourselves and fight to win.  Remember, as long as you are a part of the process, you are taking a step towards perfection.  When you perfect the steps, you will be successful in the fight.  The battle is not to the strongest are even the swift, but to those who have the patience to endure.

Keep your eyes on the Goal

Monday’s Word of Encouragement

I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.

15-16 So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it.  (Philippians 3:12-14 MSG)

HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL THE FATHERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

 

HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY TO ALL THE FATHERS THOUGHOUT THE WORLD

A GIFT OF LOVE FOR ALL FATHERS ON THIS FATHERS’ DAY

BY SHIRLEY RHODES

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

GOD declares his love for us in John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that who-ever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. In giving us his only begotten Son, He gave us THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL.

Today is Sunday June 15, FATHER’S DAY. This is a day set aside to honor FATHERS and encourage one-another. God has given this day and it is to be celebrated in a way that honors him. So today, FATHERS’ lift your head up, pull your shoulders back, stick your chest out and stand tall. You have been given an assignment and you are needed now more than ever in the lives of children every-where you journey make a difference in some-ones’ life that is you’re calling. FATHERS’ wear labels and expectations from the family as well as society. They are given the task of being able to rule, guide, teach and make wise decisions and choices. In all of this we must remember our creator and look to him for instructions to apply to our lives.

REMEMBER THE GREATEST GIFT:

In the beginning God created the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1) The Bible as a whole is the story of God, the central personality and driving force of all that is recorded. From Genesis Chapter 1 God created to Revelation 22 (the last chapter) the throne of God is beautifully reveled as a river of life that flows through a world where “night shall be no more…for the Lord will be their light” (Revelation 22:5). God’s time stretch across history, in his own time and ways. It was the Holy Spirit who descended on Jesus’ baptism, God’s voice announcing, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I’m well pleased” (Matthew 3:17).  God also chose through Jesus to establish a newly intimate relationship with those who would have faith in Jesus Christ. Because Jesus was God’s Son, Christians taught, God also adopts as his own child the one who trust in Jesus.

Paul wrote, “When the time had fully come, God sent forth his Son…so that we might receive adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba [Father!]” (Galatians 4:4-6). Life, light, truth and beauty surrounds God’s throne. The vision assures us, God “shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 22:5).  God who is exalted beyond all time, history and imagination is yet personal and intimate enough to listen to a single heart crying “Abba, Father!”

Jesus encourages our hearts with these words: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: abide in my love. If you keep my commandments you shall abide in my love: Even as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love (John 15:9-10).

This is my commandment; Love one another as I have loved you (12).

So, today is Fathers’ Day, let it be a day we pause and give thanks for their patience, love and guidance.

God bless all Fathers’ this special day, and FATHERS’ use your unique gift of love to bless others and together we can make the world a better place.  HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY TO ALL FATHERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD! In the name of JESUS, AMEN!

FAITH BRINGS ABOUT REWARDS

FAITH BRINGS ABOUT REWARDS TO ENDURE THE RACE:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

 

FAITH and TRUST IS: A perfected combination for Christian growth. The question is do you really trust God if not are you able to say why?  The following virtues should help in understanding just how much power lies within your physical body powered by the spiritual.

Endurance:

Endurance requires determination to follow the plan Jesus laid out for each of you before he departed this earthly realm. His care, compassion and concern were that each of you listen carefully and be obedient to his call on your life. Therefore, in this world you are encouraged to lay aside every weight and sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us looking unto Jesus…who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross…consider him who endured hostility…lest you become weary and discouraged… (Hebrews 12: 1-7; NKJV).

Patience:

We all experience moments in life that patience is a virtue we must tap into. Patience usually brings you to that place you’ve discovered that life does not go according to “your” plans, but in all actuality according to the plan of God. It is here we become frustrated, impatient, and sometimes even angry due to lack of patience. What you must remember is that patience is what Jesus displayed in dealing with this world and those who challenged him, we are no different. When you are able to come to the mindset that godliness and contentment is great gain…pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on to eternal life to which you are called… (1Timothy: 6:6-11). Therefore my friends, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience; but let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete (James 1:2-4).

Humility:

Meekness, absence of self, overcoming pride, arrogance

When you become self –absorbed, you become blinded to the needs of others. What is most important in this Christian walk is that you must remember, it’s not about you, but about the lives you touch in such a way change is experienced. We are all a part of something greater than we are as mere humans, so grab hold of the source of power that leads you to heights you’ve never experienced. Take on the attitude of “love” for one another while understanding that the Holy Spirit is directing your every move, thought and action. There is no greater joy to reach for or to become a part of because the scriptures reminds you, that “greater is he that’s in you than he that is in the world.”

Strength:

Your strength to overcome, endure and run the race lies in your relationship with God who inspires hope through faith and grace. God is salvation, refuge, helper, and mighty in power for those who chose to follow his plan; all things come from him, we are his instruments and can live life in expectancy for a greater day. The Lord is my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27: 1-2)

When troubles come remember that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1)

He gives power to the weak, and those who have no might he increases strength. Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isiah 40: 29-31)

Strengthen your brother (Luke 22:32)

Integrity:

Reading through scripture opens the mind to all avenues of this earthly life; therefore, you are encouraged to seek knowledge and understanding that will guide you to and through your purpose. Titus chapter 2 describes character and how to encourage as well as apply those principles to ones’ own life journey.  As for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine (Titus 2: 1; NKJV). First addressed: guide older men in virtues as temperance, dignity, wisdom, faith, love and endurance. They are in return to guide younger men to live discipline lives; build up their courage; discipline them if they get out of line; do this your- self and lead by example.

As for older women, they should be reverence, non-gossipers, nor drunkards but models pf goodness. They are to teach young women to love their husbands and children; be virtuous and pure; keep a good house and be good wives. The older women are to lead by example as well.

You may ask the question why?

Demonstrating how to turn their backs on a godless indulgent life and how to take on a God filled, God honoring life, for the glorious day when our great God and Savior Jesus Christ appear; he offered himself as a sacrifice to free you. Your have a hope in knowing that whatever comes you will experience growth that often come when least expected.
