sin to entrap you into a life of great darkness.


So now we know who the enemy is and what type of war we are fighting and we understand the tactics Satan deploys. So let me ask you another question. Do you think the disciples knew who the enemy was and what type of battle they were in? Was this what Jesus was trying to teach them? I don’t think so. I think they are much like us in a way. We understand who the enemy is and we understand what type of battle we are fighting, but I think where we fall short is that same place the disciples fell short and that is understanding what the weapons of our warfare consist of.
I want to give you what I consider to be the most powerful weapons of spiritual warfare in the arsenal of the Christian.

1. Admit there is a fight- the fist thing the Christian must do in preparing for war is to admit there is a war. Stop letting the enemy lull you to sleep thinking that this war is just for the pastors and the preachers and the teachers. We must get out of denial and come to realize that we are in a war whether we want it or not. Satan is waging war on your soul and he doesn’t ask you beforehand he just declares war on you period. So lets declare war on Him! How do we declare war on Satan how do we fight against his tactics what weapon should I use First? Make a personal declaration of war in your life. How do we do this? Its not as you might think. We don’t run around shouting at the top of our lungs I am at war with the enemy, I am at war with Satan, No we find this weapon in

James 4:7 (King James Version)
7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

So we find the weapon to use in making a declaration of war is to SUBMIT TO GOD.. That’s where it all starts my friends; complete and utter submission to God is the fist weapon of the Christian. To surrender your will and your way to His will and His way. And when we can get out of denial and admit that there is a fight and we can submit to God, that gives us a Heavenly Armor that empowers us to resist the Devil and we will reap the benefit of watching him flee from our lives.

2. Put On The Armor-Now that we know we are in a war we must prepare for war and we do that by putting on the armor of God. This also is not as you may think. There is no chainmale here no metal nor leather no Kevlar or bulletproof vest. This is a spiritual armor. Remember we in a spiritual war and there is a spiritual armor.
Eph.6: 13-16
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
