SPIRITUAL weapons of warfare

 

2 Corinthians 10:3

King James Version

3 For though we walk in the flesh, 

we do not war after the flesh:


What hope have we got, in a world full of wickedness?

What arsenal have we got?

A born again has got hope.

Our hope is in JESUS.

He is our blessed hope.

Titus 2:13

King James Version

13 Looking for that blessed hope, 

and the glorious appearing 

of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;


We have also been instructed to put on the WHOLE ARMOR of GOD, to fight darkness, with light.

Ephesians 6:10-11

King James Version

10 Finally, 

my brethren, 

be strong in the Lord

and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand 

against the wiles of the devil.


For our weapons are not carnal.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5

King James Version

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, 

but mighty through God 

to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, 

and every high thing that exalteth itself 

against the knowledge of God, 

and bringing into captivity every thought 

to the obedience of Christ;


We are fighting the traitorous unseen.

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 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.


We need to come out strong -- in, and through, the LORD.

Ephesians 6:13-18

King James Version

13 Wherefore take unto you 

the whole armour of God

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth, 

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer 

and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;


By GRACE, through FAITH, are the born again saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9

King James Version

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, 

lest any man should boast.


JESUS is our strength.

Psalm 28:7

King James Version

7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; 

my heart trusted in him, 

and I am helped

therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; 

and with my song will I praise him.


With JESUS, we can do everything.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


With JESUS, we have peace.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


We are redeemed by His BLOOD.

Colossians 1:14

King James Version

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, 

even the forgiveness of sins:


We are safe, through the LORD's NAME.

Proverbs 18:10

King James Version

10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: 

the righteous runneth into it, 

and is safe.


We overcome, through our BELIEF in the LORD JESUS.

1 John 5:5

King James Version

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, 

but he that believeth 

that Jesus is the Son of God?


ALL power was given JESUS.

Matthew 28:18

King James Version

18 And Jesus came 

and spake unto them, 

saying, 

All power is given unto me 

in heaven and in earth.


JESUS is with us, ALWAYS.

Matthew 28:20

King James Version

20 Teaching them to observe all things 

whatsoever I have commanded you: 

and, lo, 

I am with you always, 

even unto the end of the world. 

Amen.


Pay heed to the WORD of GOD.

For it is all that will remain.

Isaiah 40:8

King James Version

8 The grass withereth, 

the flower fadeth: 

but the word of our God 

shall stand for ever.


JESUS said so Himself.

Luke 21:33

King James Version

33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: 

but my words shall not pass away.


We have ALL the help we need.

The question is, do we have FAITH?

The armor is nothing, without faith.

How firmly do we BELIEVE in JESUS?
