Nr. 622: How does work the evil today? Or what can we expect of Satan?

Nr. 622:

How does work the evil today? Or what can we expect of Satan?

Is Satan and demos a reality? Yes, but that's not to say that one can see him been a street corner while both Satan and God is Spirit. They are like two polar opposites in the spiritual battle where they stand against each other. But man is where this fight rather than someone else is expressed as man is the only creature of God as the filling has the ability and opportunity to become like God and have fellowship with him. This hate Satan so strong that he does everything in his power to ensure that this community will be groundbreaking. This happened in the Garden of Eden, but Jesus has healed and restored this relationship through his death and resurrection. Therefore, the cross and resurrection our surest signs and strongest knowledge that this brings us forward and victory in spiritual battle. Image shows from Jesus' tomb which says that all powers of evil are innovative and defeated by someone stronger than them, our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ

Colossians 2:15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, and made them openly, shewing himself triumphing over them in it.

We are not unfamiliar with him and his methods.

2 Corinthians 11:14 And it is no wonder, for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light; 2 Corinthians 2:10 But that ye forgive any thing, and I forgive him, for what I have forgiven - if I had anything to forgive - I have done for your sake, for Christ's presence, lest we fool of Satan; 2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted and turned away from the simplicity and fidelity to Christ. 2 Corinthians 2:11 for we are not ignorant of his thoughts.

After thirty three years as a Christian, I have more and more experienced, seen and discovered that the real battle our place in our mind. Therefore, Satan will try to manipulate, get into a lie, P pictures and everything else that makes us unable and captures what God and God's word says. And what is the true reality, therefore, also says writing the following:

Eph. 4 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind. Or 2011 review 23 new Be in soul and mind! And the 1978 review 23 You must be renewed in mind and spirit.

The battle - the spiritual battle - taking place in our minds! Where intellectual powers will have dominion which God's words are renewing our minds!

Satan distorts, manipulates and put into our minds so that we get a distorted picture of reality. As a rule, Satan does two things with us. Either we are proud, or so he sends us to the other end where we lose hope, faith and do not feel loved and appreciated. Both sides or parts Satan and demons intrigues against us, everything that we should lose focus. What is the focus for us? Living the Word of God, not by our emotions and thoughts. The non-believer has a clouded mind, the mind, Satan also we believers should get and have,

From my commentaries Ephesians 4 17 So I ask you earnestly in the name of the Lord: Live no longer as the Gentiles. Their thoughts are vain, God's word makes it ugjenfødte and carnal man very low. Therefore, we are encouraged to live quite the opposite. Unfortunately characterizes the world many times one church congregation characterizes the world. God wants us to leave a trace us. 18 their understanding darkened, and they are alienated from the life of God. For their hearts were hardened, so they do not know him. "For the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they do not see the light of the gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God." (2 Corinthians 4:4) "Everything is clean to the clean. But for those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. " The soul and the mind is therefore a battleground! And it's you and I who decides who will win! "Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and return unto the Lord, then He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. "(Isaiah 55:7-9) As we see, there is a large contrast between the wicked thoughts and God's thoughts. The wicked shall leave their thoughts and ways, and partake of God's thoughts, plans and roads. This speaks of a total transformation of thought life. "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the will of God: the good, that which he delights in, it's perfect." (Romans 12:2) The word transform (Greek: metamorphosis) speaks of a total transformation. It also talks about being different than everyone else's. 19 blunted they have been, they have plunged into debauchery, indulge in every kind of immorality and chase after money. God's thoughts are primarily revealed in God's Word. Therefore we have to read much of God's Word so that the Word is allowed to work in our lives. It will gradually begin to transform our thoughts, attitudes and our whole sense. It is this that is the whole key. "How will the young keep their trail clean? By sticking by your word. I seek you with all my heart, let me not wander from your commandments! In my heart I have hidden Your Word that I might not sin against you. "(Psalm 119:9-11) "Thy Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path." (Psalm 119:105) God's Word is living Word. Therefore, they are life-changing. When God's Word penetrates the mind, the living power and helps you distinguish between God's thoughts and the human. "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. Piercing even to the dividing asunder (case) soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and advice. "(Hebrews 4:12) We must let the Word get guide us, teach us, convince us and raise us. Then we will be arranging for service in God's kingdom. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, enabled for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16-17) When Jesus was tempted by the devil in the desert, His mind was rock solid. He responded to God's Word. When we allow our minds are renewed, so too can we tackle both trials and temptations by keeping the focus on God's Word. Man in itself makes the flesh unfruitful works and thrives on it.

Final Comment:

All that is from God or from God, Satan in one or more ways to stand against. This is a spiritual law. We read in Galatians about this that Ishmael persecuted Isaac, and tried to make life miserable for him. Why? Because Isaac was the birth of God's will, while Ishmael was born after the flesh and the lust will. This spiritual battle is inevitable.

From my commentaries Galatians 4 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman. Paul makes Isaac and Ishmael, Abraham's two sons to a picture of the old and the new covenant. He shows that Hagar's son Ishmael, symbolizing the old covenant, while Sarah's son, Isaac, is a picture of the new one. "Now we are brothers, children of the promise as Isaac was. .. Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free. "(Gal.28-31) This is interesting. In what way can the sons of the two women represent the two covenants? In fact, they are a perfect illustration of everything we've learned so far. God had promised that Abraham would have a son with his wife Sarah, but because she was almost 90 years old, thought neither of the two that such things could happen. Sara knew that her womb was dead and that she had long since passed the age where they could have children. She therefore suggested that her husband could take Hagar, her maidservant, and a child with her instead. It seemed like the only way to save God from an impossible promise. Eventually he gave after and had a child with Hagar. This is a typical illustration of the old covenant principles - "we will do ..." Abraham tried to get it to the flesh by human endeavors and planning. The event failed, like the old covenant promises, as there was no dependence on divine power. God never accepted Ishmael as the promised seed. When Isaac was born, there was a miracle. God made a new life in a biological dead womb. The physical impossibilities submitted to the supernatural, creative power of God. Isaac represents the principles of the new covenant in a perfect way, a degenerate body, a new birth - experience that recreates the Son of God lives in all who believe. The natural, physical womb of Sarah was certainly not able to produce fruit. Similarly, not the natural, fleshly body and mind of a sinner produce fruit of obedience. When God used His power to create a new life within Sarah, the impossible happened, and she bore a son. When God uses His power to create a new life in the soul, the impossible happens again - a man is spiritual and obedient. Isaac was not born "after the flesh" but "after the Spirit." (Gal.4, 29) Since man is carnal and "weak flesh", it has no power to achieve the legislative justice. It must also be born after the Spirit. Any attempt to obey the covenant of human endeavor (as in the old covenant) will produce children in bondage. (Because they end up breaking the law) The law must be written into the hearts by the Holy Spirit and be met by having "Christ Himself". 23 slave woman's son was born in the ordinary way, the free woman's son was born by God's promise. It's almost shocking how Paul compares Jerusalem with Hagar and her slave children, and the Gentile Galatian Christians and children of promise. This relates positively modern Jerusalem today as much as in apostolic times. The present Jerusalem is the legality of their children trapped in many religious minority parties. We can not believe that those currently living in Jerusalem without faith in Jesus Christ is the elect of God unto salvation. It can not mean? There may be some who do not believe will one day come to faith. But we can not believe they are God's chosen before they have confessed their faith in Jesus as the Messiah. Slavery will continue until you return to faith in Jesus. To believe otherwise would be to deny the Atonement of Jesus and give people false hopes. Chris Wright summarizes the discussion of the Jews good. "Hebrews confirmation of what" we "are surprisingly extensive. We have the land, describing the rest we have entered through Christ, the rest as not once did Joshua take (3.12 - 4 11) We have a High Priest (4,14 8,1 10,21) We have a salts (13.10) and we have a hope that has its reality and realization of the covenant with Abraham. (6.13 to 20). We enter into the holiest. That means we have of the temple and tabernacle realities. We have come to Mount Zion. (12,22) and we have a rich according to Haggai 2:6 (12:28) Indeed, according to Hebrews (13.14) - the only thing we have is an earthly, territorial city .. "For here we have no abiding city, but we seek one to come." Heb. 13.14 24 In this lies a deeper meaning. The two women are two covenants. One, covenant is from Mount Sinai and bears children who are to bondage. It appears deep spiritual truths of this old story, says Paul. Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. These are born of two mothers, Hagar and Sarah. These two represent two different covenants in their respective Jerusalem. Maidservant Hagar stands for the old covenant, and her son symbolizes the church in the earthly Jerusalem. The free woman, Sarah represents the new covenant, and her son represents the new Jerusalem. The church in the heavenly city. Although these two superficially are similar, since both were sons of Abraham, the two boys fundamentally different. In the same way, Paul says, it is not enough to say that Abraham is my father. The big question is who is your mother! If it is Hagar, we are like Ishmael, but if it's Sara, we are like Isaac. 25 The name Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia, and Hagar corresponds to the present Jerusalem, which is in slavery with her children. Elsewhere, Paul warns Gentile Christians to be boastful or proud to have been grafted onto his body. They should never disparage the work of God among the Jews. On the other hand the absolute blasphemy to rebuild the walls that Cross has torn down. Jesus tore down every wall between all people: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female.: For ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." (Galatians 3:28-29) No descendants of Abraham just because he was born a Jew. No - we are heirs to the promise because of our faith in Jesus. All nationalities are made one in Him. We are truly the New Jerusalem from above. 26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother. For it is written: Revelation 9:10 p.m. And he carried me in spirit to a great, high mountain. And he showed me the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. The new covenant nature is completely different from the old covenant. The old covenant required and not found. The new pact keeps on giving. Then it is also possible to serve God when we get all the help we need to do it. 27 Rejoice, thou barren, that didst not bear, break forth into singing, who had labor pains. For she who live alone, have more kids than she has man. The law will always feed people spiritually dead. Israel promised to serve God again and again but they failed. The law could not help them. The church can do and ability to serve God even when "heaven" live by faith in our hearts. Joh. AD 14 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him. 22 Judas - not Iscariot - said to Him, Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us and not to the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home with him. 28 Now you, brothers, are children of promise like Isaac. There were many promises given in the Old Testament of a coming savior and salvation. The first came early as the fall of the woman should bruise the serpent's head, which is Satan. 29 And he that was born in the normal way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit, and so it is today. We read several places in the word of God, both Old and New Testament that God's men and women were persecuted. Who was the greatest persecutions in very often? Those who "believed" in God but did not know him. 30 But what does the Scripture say? Get rid of the slave woman and her son! For the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son. After God chose us in Christ and gave us His Son who suffered and died for us, to atone for our sins and give us eternal life back, so nothing comes for God, either in heaven or on earth, without his only begotten Son Blood and obedience. To burn his zeal for the glory of the Son as a fire that fills the world, devouring all who rise up against it, whether it was man's holiness. Never before God, if you do not get in his beloved Son cladding! For otherwise he meets you as a consuming fire. Never before God in your own name! Never attempt to gain his favor in any way other than in "the Beloved"! You live maybe even a serious godly life. You pray diligently and burning. You bitterly regret your sins. You watch and fight against them. You make many good deeds. All this is good and right. But you just keep making yet more good and you are still condemned - it does not help! As long as not all just been like "garbage" for you. And Christ, Christ alone has become all thy righteousness, and comfort. So it is with the selection. Oh, listen now all together: It's fine no mercy at Sinai, Only the Lamb of God, Saviour There is forgiveness. This then is it important to know about the election and this is the main message in Romans 9 As we have seen, is spoken quite right about how Israel was chosen to be God's peculiar people (v.6-13), and how the Gentiles are included in God's covenant of grace (v.24-33). But as we have seen by the apostle's own statement, was it not his real intention to speak about special people and people were chosen. He just used it as an image of God's free election. The main thing Paul would preach, that God has chosen the path of faith, and not works', Christ and not us, Christ's merit and not ours. Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, but only Christ is all and in all. In Him alone we are pardoned, because God has chosen us in him before the foundation. 31 Therefore, brethren, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman. Here's Paul with an allegory of Sarah and Hagar. Hagar's children are born to slavery and corresponds to the present Jerusalem and the Jews. Sarah's children were born to freedom and this is the right Christian. Freedom is to be in Christ and He in us! (End of quote).

But we should be standing after having done everything. This can be by being in Christ and live a life in accordance with God's word. The only way it is.

From my commentaries Ephesians 6 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power! So what Paul skips from the human and natural part of the spiritual. But all this goes together. God's Word encourages us to be strong and be the winner. It does this by obeying God org his words and put on his mighty power. Even in the Old Testament was the mighty promises of being obedient as we find among others 5th Genesis 28, how much more in the new covenant! 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may stand against the wiles of the devil. Here we put on God's armor. What it is and includes coming in the next verses. We should not just put on some parts of the armor, but the whole armor. But there are so many believers who never comes out or goes into spiritual battle that this is something they fail entirely to deal with. It is only when one has been in fights that realize how important and vital this is. Been to struggle and suffer defeat, so will do all one can to not be defeated in the next fight! 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against spiritual wickedness in high places. The real enemies are demons who are led by the Devil. There are evil spirits of different orders of magnitude and positions. It is demonic world rulers who operate in this darkness that the world finds itself in. It is a struggle against "spiritual wickedness in high places". That is, they belong to the spirit world, and thus they are eerily dangerous and insidious. Satan acts in many different ways, both as an angel of light (2 Cor 11,14) and, as a roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8). He is most dangerous when he appears as an angel of light, disguised as a messenger of the Gospel. The word of God says about the last days: "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. This is done by hypocrisy, being seared in their own conscience "1 Tim 4.1 to 2. Wrong doctrine thus has its origins in evil spirits, and false teachings are influenced by, or under the influence of evil spirits. Therefore we can say that there is a battle against humans in itself, but the devil and evil spirits using or abusing people in their struggle against God and Christians. God's word does not deny that we have a sinister opponent with horrific evil spirits will do everything possible to deceive God's children. But we know that Jesus disarmed the evil spirits when he triumphed at Calvary (Col. 2:15). Although the devil and his spiritual army is defeated, it is not the judgment executed yet. Therefore, they have yet time to seduce and tempt people, and the judgment of them is already rendered. But there are also different spirits we face. We can divide them into. 1) The powers and authorities. 2) world rulers of this darkness. 3) Evil spirits in high places. Here we meet three different areas of the enemy armies that would fight and disturb us. Two of the secret to victory is to know ourselves and our own strength. And know the enemy and his clout. 1) Here we meet people "Face to Face". Why will not the media and everything else write and relate factual and objective for us believers and objectively? Satan is behind. 2) There is a Spirit that the Bible describes Satan as spirit Antichrist `s, the spirit that worketh in the children of disobedience works and reigns in this world. The opposite of God's Spirit can we say. 3) Here are the demons and fallen angels. Demons are often "young" men on 1 \ 2 m if one were to see them visible to the eye. The fallen angels are demons again and may even multiply, we read in 1 Genesis 6 They presumption respectively helped to rule this world before with Lucifer. We read several places in Scripture that demons infiltrate and occupied people. While the fallen angels went so far as to have sex with women and had children with them, they had opportunities to propagate. But they are spiritual beings who can be both visible and invisible to the eye sacrifice! 1 Genesis 6 4 At that time and since, too, there were giants on the earth. For sons of God lived with the daughters of men and had children by them. Those were the mighty men of old, the renown. Human girls give birth to giants, they are sons of God have other genetic conditions that are stronger and different people after the fall. King David destroyed those who survived the flood, and today is the spiritual people and not flesh and blood, 2 Book of Samuel 21 18 And it came to new conflict with the Philistines at Gob. There felled Hushathite of Shoo-seed a man named Saf and was a descendant of Rapha. 19 Once again, it came to battle with the Philistines at Gob. Elhanan son of Jaare-oregim of Bethlehem, killed Goliath of Gath, who had a spear shafts as thick as a weaver's beam. 20 Since it came to battle at Gath. There was a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four fingers and toes in everything. He also belonged to Rafa-seed. 21 The man taunted Israel. But Jonathan, the son of David's brother Shimeam, killed him. 22 These four belonged to Rafa family in Gath. David and his men killed them. 23 21 He also cast a huge Egyptian. The Egyptian had a spear in his hand, but Benaiah went against him with a stick, plucked the spear out of the Egyptian's hand and killed him with his own spear. It is only at the end of the great tribulation that these spiritual variables will reveal his true self to all people. Until then we are their biggest rivals and they are our hardest and biggest opponents. But jeus have defeated them on the cross once and for all. It is well and good to know. Do also remember that Satan is very concerned about this so he set out lies that are not true about this. See here: ZetaTalk David's great-grandmother had been raped or abused as sex slave of an Anunnaki-soldier, and had then given birth to a hybrid (David's grandmother). It was thus Anunnaki blood in the veins of David, and as a child he had by her mother learned to hate giants. This is just a giant hoax! This is from my commentaries Colossians Dispenser Letter 2 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, and set them up to ridicule when he triumphed over them in it. Satan and demons has had on our lives. We were in darkness and thrived in darkness and Satan's estate. But they were disarmed and set up as liars, accusers and reel without power. Satan and the demon had been ravaged long and hard enough. But not anymore, now they were defeated. The victory is complete. God the Father is satisfied through Christ's work on Calvary. We sins are forgiven and God can take us to the mercy and adopt us into his family as his own children. And Satan and the demon has no reel power longer, they are living on borrowed time! Jesus unrecognized law for us BELIEVERS. It does not long for us, only grace in Christ Jesus. 13 Take therefore the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and remain standing after having done everything. Therefore encourage apostle believers to take the whole armor of God so that they can withstand in the evil day (v. 13). The days are different. Some days we look back with joy, others we would rather forget. The days to come we know nothing about, but experience shows that anyone can be good and some evil. We should note that the Devil is a strategist and usually takes a day when we feel everything is hard and heavy, he's going through his subtilty and temptations to try to cause us to fall. Especially evil day for the people of God's pursuit times. In our time there are many in the world who are persecuted for their Christian faith, and the world is experiencing more martyrs than any time in history. Pursuing Reading Time will culminate with the Antichrist come and the great tribulation. Therefore it is important that we take the whole armor of God, that we may be standing. 14 Stand now ready with the truth that belt around his waist and with righteousness as breastplate, The apostle uses the Roman soldier's armor as a picture of the struggle we are in. It also seems as if he uses the same order as the soldier used to taking on this armor. "Arise then girded with truth belt around his waist and be wearing the breastplate of righteousness" (v. 14). Starting with the belt and breastplate. Belt should keep the long clothes so that one was ready both to move and ready for battle. Breastplate to cover and protect the vital organs such as the heart and lungs. When it speaks of "truth belt", it means that one must be truthful and sincere in their journey, both in word and deed. A Christian've accepted the truth, Jesus, therefore he must also in their lives reflect this truth by being truthful and honest in all his ways. Only then is he able to go in the game. But he must also be wearing the "breastplate of righteousness". You must be a matter of objective justice, ie the imputed righteousness which God imputes a sinner who take refuge in Jesus Christ. It shall be a defense against conscience and Satan's accusations. Therefore it is important that a Christian who is imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ, live as righteous in all life's situations and circumstances and likewise live a true and honest life among all people. Truth belt is relying on the truth and always let it control the life and teachings. Joh.e. 8 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. "36 So if the Son sets you free, ye shall be free indeed. Breastplate of righteousness is the life and teachings match. It is when we practice what we preach that we are strong. 1 Cor. 9 23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I can even come to that. 24 Do you not know that those who are in a race at the sports ground, everyone runs, but only one wins the prize. So run your race you win it! 25 An athlete must deny everything. He does it to win a wreath that fades, we win a wreath that will never wither. 26 I run, therefore, not without having a goal and I am not like a boxer who turn in midair. 27 No, I'm fighting against myself and forces the body to obey, lest I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected. 15 and which have shoes on your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Furthermore mentions the apostle footwear and says: "Ha like shoes on your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace" (v. 5). Footwear is important in the game. The Roman soldier had girded feet with sandals or shoes. These were often studded with nails so he could get a good grip. Here is comparable footwear with the gospel of peace. The Gospel brings peace with God and peace in the heart of a good conscience. This peace is again a fruit of the righteousness of faith. Therefore, the Christian should always be ready to preach the gospel wherever they came. The famous ekseget Bengel says: "The Christian Soldier's feet are fixed by the gospel so he can not be moved away from his place or shy." Rooms. 5 1 When we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 16 Grip, above all, the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the fiery darts. The shield was large, oblong shield that covered almost the whole person. It was usually of wood, but with a thick coating of leather. Fire arrows were enmeshed with a combustible substance that high or tow. They were dipped in pitch or tar to illuminate when they were imposed. However, it was difficult to get ignited lærtrekket on the shield. When arrows hit this, they bounced off and fell to the ground and fell asleep. Similarly, faith protect a Christian to the Devil's temptations to apostasy. It is faith in Jesus, the Son of God, who conserves and protects the children of God against the devil's fiery darts. The same thought we read in the Apostle Peter where he urges Christians to resist the devil, steadfast in the faith (1 Peter 5:9). What then is the fiery darts? It can be words, books, magazines, movies, pornography, images, ideas, thoughts, (lusts) that attack our heart purity. Who has not noticed that suddenly pops up an image or a thought, as it is difficult to get away. Some are bothered by the sins and failures of youth. Although one has received forgiveness of sins, dolls painful thoughts and pictures up. But they must be rejected so they do not get rooms in the heart. But how? Go to Jesus with them and present your case to him. He's trying for everything, but without sin. In such situations, it may also be helpful to seek out a counselor or another Christian one has confidence. The apostle James writes about temptation and say God tempts no one, and continues: "But every man is tempted, drawn and enticed by his own desire. When lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin. But when sin is full grown, brings forth death "James from 1.14 to 15. It is the devil who tempts, and it can lead to falls for a Christian if one is not on duty. Therefore, let us live in communion with our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, the devil's temptations become exposed and refuted. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's word. The soldier takes the helmet on his head, then grabs his sword with his right hand. The helmet protects the head that is the grandest member of the body. The fact that the Christians have received salvation and live in salvation, protect the person against all hazards. Awareness of salvation, both that one is saved here and now and eternal salvation, is a defense against the devil and his spiritual army. When a Christian is Jesus Christ, the devil can never harm the believer as long as he remains in communion with Jesus, but he may be tempted to apostasy. Salvation helmet speaker to have victory in mind your life, do not give the devil room we read in chapter 4. 2 Cor. 10 3 We live as human beings, but we do not advocate that people do. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of people, but they have their power from God and can add strongholds to ruin. We tear down imaginations, 5 and all large and proud that rise up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. 6 We stand ready to punish all disobedience, once you have reached full obedience. Finally, mention sword that is an assault weapon. There is no carnal weapons, but spiritual, which the Holy Spirit gives a Christian. It is God's word. Writer of Hebrews says about the word effect: "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. Piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and advice "Hebrews 4:12. The word of God is living and active God's Holy Spirit is the word, and it provides the basis of the Holy Spirit when it is preached. God's Word is the strongest weapon attack God's people have against the devil and his spiritual army. Therefore, it is important to hear the word of God, read it, learn it (preferably memorized), meditate on it, talk about it, pray over it. In other words, take care of it. Word is the safest and best weapon to keep Satan away and drive him to flee because he can not stand the word of God. There was also that Jesus used when he was attacked and tempted by the devil in the wilderness (Matthew 4.1 to 11). In Revelation it says about those who had triumphed over the accuser: "They overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony" Revelation 12.11. Therefore, the word our help in trouble, and comfort in life and death. The Bible says, "Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it" Luke 11.28. They are blessed both in time and in eternity. 18 Do this in prayer, and put it all to God! Pray at all times in the Spirit! Alert and always keep on praying for all the saints, Taking on the whole armor of God and fight the spiritual battle can be a struggle and hard work. But Jesus has not called us to the sofa toilers, but to work in his vineyard, as members of his body, as volunteer helpers and active Christians in the congregation and church. Much has the character of work. So it is with prayer. It is not intended that prayer should be a pastime only when you have other things to do. It pays to set aside time for prayer, but prayer is also resting. Jesus says to his weary troops for the gospel and the cause of peace: "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt.11, 28 19 also for me. Pray for the right words must be given to me when I speak, so I can boldly proclaim the mystery of the gospel, Paul would preach in a right way gospel secrets. Here lies a lot. To name a few truths here it is Jesus' death on Calvary defeated Satan. But this is just a beginning for all of God's secrets. (End of quote).

Just want to say finally, let these words and this teaching be a real in your life and in your church. Then we can experience God's grace and power is and remains a reality for all of us who have faith in the Lord Jesus and Father God!
