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).

SPIRITUAL WARFARE: The Armor of God: ALL PRAYER and SUPPLICATION: Part – 8 of 15

Faith is not something we dredge up and psych ourselves up to believe enough to be heard of God; faith is a gift from God (EPH 2:8; ROM 12:3; ROM 10:7). Faith is granted by God and is the vehicle by which the believer responds to the Word of God, as demonstrated everywhere in the Bible, Old Testament and New alike.
Faith exercised will grow and become stronger (just as muscles will in our bodies). If we lack any degree of faith, know it only takes a mustard seed-size of faith to move mountains, for even a tiny faith like this, in an awesome and Almighty God as we serve can accomplish such a thing! If we have unbelief in the midst of our faith, confess this to the LORD and He will deal with it (HEB 11:6; MATT 17:20; MARK 9:24)! Note that the prayer life may be hindered by unforgiveness for others.
Righteousness is another condition for successful prayer

FEET SHOD with the PREPARATION of the GOSPEL of PEACE –
EPHESIANS 6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Whether one discusses the Gospel of the Kingdom to Israel or the Gospel of salvation to the Church, or the Gospel of GOD to those saints who will come out of great tribulation, it’s ultimately the same Gospel (to different entities) with the same central figure: our LORD Jesus Christ (also known as Y’shua ha Meschiach Nagid) and His supreme, sinless, sanctified sacrifice for the souls He created and will redeem – as many as receive Him (JOHN 1:12-13).

Here this Gospel is associated with Peace, and as Jesus Christ is our Peace, indeed, the veritable PRINCE of PEACE (ISAIAH 9:6) , we are to don these shoes prepared with the Gospel of peace, for whoever is born of God ought to walk even as He walked (1 JOHN 2:6).

EPHESIANS 2:14
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
