THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE MIGHTY THOUGH GOD!
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Anyone who has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour has immediately discovered that he has an enemy, Satan himself! The Bible speaks of Satan as being the “prince of the power of the air who worketh in the children of disobedience
MARTIN LUTHER said: “By the grace of God I know Satan very well. If he would twist the words of the Son of God, he will seek to twist my words.”
POPE PAUL V1 stated: “Satan has entered the Sanctuary through a fissure in the church…” St. Peter said: “Be declared be vigilant because your ADVERSARY the devil goeth about seeking whom he may devour., whom resist in the faith…” (1 Peter 5: 8).
The Bible says: “For though we walk in the flesh we do not war in the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; “Casting down imaginations, and every high thought that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10: 4, 5)
J. VERNON McGEE declared: “The moment you declare yourself a Preacher of the Gospel you have an enemy!” And that Enemy is the Devil, Satan himself. His name, Satan, means ‘Enemy, Adversary’. His other name, Devil, means Liar, Slanderer, False Accuser and Traducer. Another name for him is Be-elzebub, meaning “god of flies. God of filth”.
THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!
The blood of Jesus Christ has conquered Satan and all his powers! The Bible states: “If we walk in the Light as He is in the LIGHT, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sins.” (1 John 1: 7)
JESUS CHRIST declared: “The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to Steal, Kill and Destroy. I am come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly.” (John 10: 10)
“The prince of this world cometh and hath nothing in Me.” (John 14:30); “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power and all kinds of enemies and nothing shall any means hurt you.” (Luke 10: 17-19)
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might Destroy the works of the Devil, for God was with Him.” (1 John 3: 8);
The Bible says: “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through DEATH He might DESTROY him that had the power of death, that is, the DEVIL; And DELIVER them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Heb. 2:14, 15).
