SPIRITUAL WARFARE

I.. PREPARING FOR WAR

A We are to be alert and self controlled at all times
Read 1 Peter 5:8
Point: IT is our duty to be ready spiritually for the enemy attack,
and to be able to warn others of pending danger.
We must be rooted in his word!

B. We are to stand firm at all times, memorizing scripture
Read 2 Tim 2L15
Point: We must be able to rightfully divide the truth.
God's word gives us discernment against anything that is false

C. Know who Satan is and where he comes from,
know him so you will know his character and moves-
- as a football team reviews plays...
Point: Study, stay in God's word, fellowship with godly people

D. Know Satan's abilities, but also know YOURS!

2. OUR POSITION IN THIS FIGHT:

A. We are pre ordained to be Gods winners
B. If you fail to believe that it gives Satan a foothold in your mind
C. Satan CANNOT make you sin, he can only tempt
D. Satan can tempt but it is our final choice
E. We are to be slaves to Christ, we are saints not sinners
F. Your either one or the other, saint or sinner, no in between
G. We will face trials as Christians so God can use us to make points to Satan
H. We will face trials as Christians so God can expose our flaws that way we can approve ourselves
I. We are to stand in Jesus and be strong ( No wavering)

POINT: Everyone has flaws, even Job, but he overcame!

3. WHO WE ARE IN THIS WAR:
( Facts)

A. We are made in God's image ( Gen 1:26-30)

B. God granted us authority and blessed us

C. We were born with sinful natures that want to sin

D. We can overcome our sinful nature by placing our faith in Jesus

E. We are spiritual people of God ( believers ) 1 Cor 1:2, Heb 10:10,14
( We are made Holy)

F. We are gifted people ( Eph 4:7) and we all have different gifts ( Rom 12:6-Cool

G. We are valuable people ( Col 3:12) , Jesus died for us Christians ( Rom 5:Cool

H. We are loved and received grace by God ( John 15:9-10),
we are loved by God as a father loves a child

I. We are chosen for a important service, we are a Holy Priesthood ( 1 Peter 2:5-9)

4. HOW DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT TREAT PEOPLE?

A. HES A NURTURER ( Psalm 51:12)

B. HE RENEWS OUR MINDS ( Romans 12:12)

C. HE BUILDS US INTO A HOLY DWELLING ( EPHESIANS 2)

POINT: Sanctification is actually a process.
We are called to be "SET- APART"...

5. THERE ARE 3 SOURCE PROBLEMS WITH WARFARE:

IMPORTANT FACT:
THE SPIRIT REGENERATES, SATAN "DEGENERATES"- THROUGH OUR CARNAL APPETITES.
THERE ARE 4 TARGET AREAS, OR WAR ZONES IN THIS SPIRITUAL WARFARE,
TE SOURCE AREAS ARE:
A. Physical
B. Emotional
C. Intellectual
D. Spiritual

THE PROBLEMS IN THIS CONCENTRATED AREA IS THAT SATAN ATTACKS THEM.
HE GOES AFTER "VULNERABILITIES" IN THESE AREAS.
IT IS OUR JOB AS CHRISTIANS TO MAKE SURE ALL THESE AREAS ARE PROTECTED.

LETS TALK ABOUT 3 OF THESE VULNERABILITIES SO THAT WE CAN BETTER PROTECT
OURSELVES IN THIS WARFARE:

1. FLESH- Flesh is our INTERNAL enemy.
The flesh fights, wars, lusts, murders, and CAN corrupt prayers.
The source of these problems are inherited. ( James 4:1-3)
Flesh is our battleground ( Gal 5:19-21/Col 3:5-10)
We must stay fully armored with God's word!

2. THE WORLD- The world is our EXTERNAL enemy.
The world encompassed philosophies, cultures, businesses, societies, worldviews, fashions
and trends, religious orders, political systems, music and more.
Choosing the worlds ways instead of sound biblical ways makes you an enemy of God's.

3. SUPERNATURAL WICKEDNESS- Supernatural wickedness is our SPIRITUAL enemy.
Supernatural wickedness consists of witchcraft, numerology, vampirism, anything evil.
The source problem is SATAN ( Eph 2:1-2)
Satan rules the earthly domain and influences everything in it to try to get it to do evil.

NOTE:
WE NEED TO BE ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN WAR AND NOT ONLY DEFEND OURSELVES,
OTHERS, AND THE FAITH BUT WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO LAUNCH ATTACKS WHERE
NEEDED, SUCH AS, DELIVERANCE, HEALING, ETC. WITH GOD'S WORD AND JESUS'
AUTHORITY.

II. SPIRITUAL TRUTHS ABOUT US:

A, WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD ( Christians ) Eph 1:17
God knows his children, and his children know him.
We are never to know or have intimacy with Satan in the way that we do with God.

B. WE ARE ALWAYS TO KEEP OUR EYES ON JESUS! ( Heb 12:1-2)
Satan wants us defocused and confused.
If we keep our eyes on the prize then his efforts are useless.

C. WE HAVE THE POWER OF GOD! ( Eph 1:19)
We are never to underestimate what God can do FOR or THROUGH us in this life!

D. WE SHOULD ALWAYS WALK VICTORIOUS ( Jude 24-25)
We have victory through Jesus.
He won the fight, and he is in us so that we also are victorious in battles!

E. WE WILL BE DELIVERED FROM THE ENEMY! ( 2 Tim 4:18)
Every circumstance, good or bad, happen to bring honor and glory to God alone.
When God;s purposes are fulfilled then deliverance will come!

F. WE ARE ON A WINNING TEAM!
Satan and his troops have already lost this battle.
We received victory at Calvary and have it right now, we are just dealing with the "resistant"
in satans army.

PLEASE NOTE:

REMEMBER THIS-

M- MIND

W- WILL

E- EMOTIONS

ACTING ON EMOTIONS CAN BE DEADLY!!!
1. Satan loves to en flame our emotions
2. Emotions can be overwhelming so we are to use spiritual reasoning, called FAITH
3. Emotions can bring sinful and destructive ways

REMEMBER YOU ARE ON A WINNING TEAM THAT WILL HELP YOU KEEP
YOUR EMOTIONAL CONTROL.

III. WE MUST TAKE A SPIRITUAL STAND

TAKING A SPIRITUALS AND MEANS NOT ONLY TO DEFEND IN BATTLE BUT TO BE
VICTORIOUS IN WARFARE.
IN ORDER TO BE VICTORIOUS WE HAVE TO HAVE THE PROPER WEAPONS.

A. THE BELT OF TRUTH
1. Truth is central to all things and holds all things together
2. Christ is the truth in him there is freedom
3. John 17:17, Gal 3:26-27
4. Effects are John 8:32, 2 Cor. 10:4
5. The belt of truth means to put on Jesus

B. BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
1. Jer 17:9 Trust NO human emotion
2. Jesus said Matt 12:34, Matt 15:17-19, Mat 7:21-23
3. The breastplate of righteousness means to GUARD YOUR HEARTS, or emotions

C. SHOES OF PEACE AND READINESS
1. 2 John 1:6, Isaiah 52:7, Psalm 119:105, Luke 1:78-79
Our spiritual army boots are all within scripture

D. SHIELD OF FAITH ( above all this is the utmost weapon)
1. This weapon is essential for Christians! ( Eph 6:16)
2. F* Forgiveness of sins
A* Assurance of Salvation
I * Identification in Gods family
T * Triumph over Satan
H * Hope of deliverance
NOTE: Faith is believing in what God has said to us, and in his words ( The bible)

E. HELMET OF SALVATION
1. 2 Cor 10:5 we are to take captive ALL thoughts
2. We are to make our thoughts obedient to Christ.
3. We are to keep emotional control Rom 12:2
4. We are NOT to be conformed to the ways of this world.
5. Christians are to think pure thoughts, Know God's word, Pray for enemies,
Choose to die to ourselves daily, Understand God's will, Learn the Truths of the Gospel,
Speak to others concerning the gospel and biblical things, most importantly we are to
care about what God cares about!

F. SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
1. 2 Cor 4:2- We are to handle God's word with integrity and honesty!
2. We are to slay our enemies with God's word.
3. This is the only OFFENSIVE & DEFENSIVE weapon listed within scripture, besides prayer.

TO KEEP OUR ARMOR IN GOOD SHAPE, WE NEED TO OIL IT DAILY WITH PRAYER!
( Eph 6:18)

IIII. 3 AREAS OF TEMPTATION
( THE HOSTILE GROUNDS)

READ 1 JOHN 2:16
a. LUST OF FLESH

b. LUST OF EYES

c. PRIDE OF LIFE

HOW TO DEFEAT THESE TEMPTATIONS:

1. Keep scripture memorized for areas of weakness.
2. Choose scripture that fights all areas of life to memorize.
3. Pray for a target person when you are under attack! ( choose a person)
4. When tempted pray for the target person, and quote the memorized scripture

NOTE: Warfare begins , ends, and exists in prayer.
The more we pray the more darkness stays away.
Prayer brings us into God's presence, so the more you pray
the less darkness is around...

JESUS EVEN USED PRAYER, IT WAS A KEY PART OF HIS MINISTRY ALSO:

A) Matt 14:23, 19:13, 26:36

B) Mark 1:35, 14:32

C) Luke 5:16, 9:18, 6:12, 18:1


V. DART SLINGERS

READ EPHESIANS 6:12

Satan's army is structured much like a fleshly army.
There are 4 groups of demonic spirituals that we war against daily:

1. RULERS ( Principalities)
a. Princes are appointed over municipalities ( or land)
b. These demons are appointed over geological areas
c. Daniel chapter 10 specifies that there was a demonic prince of PERSIA
d. Michael came to the other angels rescue in Chapter 10 so that the message
could get through to Daniel from God.

2. AUTHORITIES ( Powers)
a. They seek to exhort power and authority over lives
b. Their goal is to impregnate our lives with evil
c. They influence wrongly in hopes of destroying us

3. POWERS OF THIS DARK WORLD ( Rulers of darkness)
a. Assigned to those in leadership roles
b. Pastors, church leaders, government, etc
