The Weapons of our Warfare
Compiled by Rachel Cory-Kuehl
Scripture from the NKJV, unless otherwise noted
2 Corinthians 10:4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (physical) but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds . . .”
This battle is fought for the mind, with beings of another dimension.
Ephesians 6:10-18 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
13 “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people.” (NIV)
The soldier’s sword hung from his belt. The SWORD is God’s Word. We must believe that the Bible truly is God’s word, or we will not seek to learn what it says, or learn to use it effectively. Without the BELT, the soldier would not take his sword with him.
The BREASTPLATE is Christ’s righteousness - not our own, that covers us front and back. The breastplate hung from shoulder straps. Without the back plate, the front plate would just fall off.
Our SHIELD is our FAITH. The SHIELD here is the large shield used by Roman soldiers to cover themselves from arrow attacks. They would link their shields together, and could move forward, almost like a tank. Christians should learn to link their shields, to give each other strength.
The HELMET of salvation, is our own awareness - in our minds, that we are saved because we belong to Christ. We belong to Him, and He has already won! The HELMET covers the head, neck, and ears - protecting us from Satan’s lies. Our salvation is sure “in Christ.” We must know this, if we are to stay strong, to withstand doubters and to help others.
It is clear that the Devil is not in charge of Hell. Far from it.
Romans 16:20 “And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.”
Satan is a defeated foe. Remember that!
1. Believe in Jesus, the Christ of the Bible, the divine Son of God.
2. Renounce all false religions - those which do not recognize Jesus Christ as the one and only divine Son of God, who is worthy to be worshiped, who died to bring us to reconciliation with His Father.
3. Confess your sins to God, asking His forgiveness in the name of Jesus.
Especially ask forgiveness for those acts which took you into the realm of the Evil One - such as Tarot Card readings, spirit mediums, fortune tellers, levitation, and many forms of “magic.”
Renounce all ecstatic “tongues” speaking or laughing.
Ask the LORD to bring to your mind, any other thing that has given Satan grounds to harass you. Confess such and ask for forgiveness in the name of Jesus.
4. Pray the Lord’s Prayer to God our Father, in the name of Jesus.
5. Out loud - in the name of Jesus Christ, by your authority “in Him,” command every enemy of God the Father and of Jesus Christ His Son, to leave your presence immediately, and never return. Command that no substitutes or replacements may be sent by the Evil Ones to bother your mind. Command they be sent to wherever Jesus’ angels direct.
We have also collected recommendations for books and videos that support faith through more knowledge of “Creation Science,” “Biblical Archaeology,” and the “Prophecies of Messiah” fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
Do watch video lectures by Gary Bates on UFOs and the Alien Invasion. They are not aliens from other galaxies. They are demons. Find the link under “Creation Science” on our recommendations page.
Always remember who you are in Christ. You are a child of God, anointed with the Spirit of His Son. Those who are “in Christ” have authority from Christ to command demons in His name.
We pray this series on Spiritual Warfare will prove a blessing.
