Old Testament Examples of SPIRITUAL WARFARE 5b: Conduct in the Campaign & Implementing the Victory of Christ in our Lives – Part 2 of 2

In these days, we may well be like the young servant: seeing the forces of this world marshaling themselves together in all the various realms that we can view on the nightly news – all those things we read about in newsletters and the Internet that are an integral part of this new world order whose primary target will be those biblical Christians defiantly non-compliant to their directives. Such things may cause us to become unnerved and in a panic run around from one place to another, seeking counsel and comfort, having no peace at all but a constant stream of anxiety and unrest.

In such times, may God provide us with our own Elisha, a mature saint who will pray for us, and beseech the LORD to open our eyes to the Holy Sovereignty and Almighty power of the LIVING GOD – or may we come to our spiritual senses enough to pray on our own behalf, asking God to give us insight and understanding regarding the days in which we live and the assurance of knowing that He as the LORD of Heaven, rides upon the storms of this world as the Supreme Authority

Old Testament Examples of SPIRITUAL WARFARE: PART 5a – Conduct in the Campaign & Implementing the Victory of Christ in our Lives –

This is the essence of spiritual warfare, and it’s not a quick-fix solution! This is a long term enterprise that requires patience, diligence, and sensitivity to the Spirit of God, as well as a compassionate heart that yearns for the lost, the empowerment of the saints and to see God glorified above all.

We need to pray for our pastors and church leadership, for our brothers and sisters, for those who herald the gospel and God’s Word – that they may do so without compromise, without adding to or taking away from the message that God would give them through the Holy Scriptures, to deliver to the people (JER 26:2); for the lost souls that have believed any of the myriad falsehoods paraded by the enemy, that God would open their eyes and turn them from darkness to His Light (ACTS 26:18).
