I began this post with plans to write on the sad state of America. The corruption, the lies, the deceit within the government. Pointing out the apparent Islamic agenda of the current administration, the socialistic mindset of our governmental leaders and the schools and universities with their left leaning positions that teach our children right is wrong and wrong is right...

I had plans, God had other plans.

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every high thing that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6

Strongholds are like fortresses, fortresses cannot be torn down by a single person acting alone, but require an army - the army of Jehovah God.

‘Paul presents a battle plan for the LORD’ army, for His church. A responsibility for Christians collectively. The weapons are not the “armor of God” for the individual believer. To pull down strongholds, war engines are needed. Ephesians 6 describes God’ provision of spiritual armor each of us should wear as we go into spiritual battle. From an individual perspective, however, the sword of the Spirit and the helmet of salvation wouldn’t do much good against a fortress. A collective might is needed - the collective might and war machines of the Kingdom and of The Church of which we all are a part.’ Henry M. Morris III-ICR

“No one who engages in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who enlisted him as a soldier.” 2 Timothy 2:4

We must never lose sight of the ‘war’ [used in 2 Corinthians 10 it is the Greek word strateuomai - specifically referring to a life-long battle] we are fighting, nor the intense hostility of the enemies we face. Satan' agenda is the destruction of God’ people.

All Christians are called to fight this intense spiritual warfare…

Stay tuned.
