You and I live in an unseen battle scape. The battle is over our souls. The ammunition consists of thoughts. The enemy attacks us with lies. God fights for us with truth. And you and I are the guardians saying what comes in and out of the heart.
So often, when we receive the good news of the cross, being born from Heaven as a new kind of humanity in union with God, we spring to life with great joy but great lack of understanding the battle we’re in and the weaponry attacking us.
the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour… 1 Peter 5:
This lack of understanding the battle and its ammunition causes many casualties along the way. Many Kingdom warriors lying comatose in the streets.
But with a little training and preparation, the Kingdom of God can take her stand against the wiles of the devil, resisting his attacks, taking ground from him, and living and reigning as fruitful and glorious Kingdom people of God on this precious earth scape.
…those who [are receiving] the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Rom. 5:17
That’s what this series is about: learning to recognize the stealth battle ammunition of the enemy, so we can duck, shield, thwart, and take it out. We hear much about what is true… but what about learning to recognize the flaming arrows coming at us from the enemy?
Here in this series, we’ll be looking at some of the common Little White Lies the enemy uses to destroy our faith and keep us under his command. We’re going to learn to recognize how he sounds and what he says to take us down. We’ll come out of this series more trained and ready to fight for the freedom that is ours.
It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Gal. 5:1
And we’ll come out prepared to reign in life, bearing fruit and bringing much glory to God.
And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. Matt. 13:23
Can’t wait to go this journey with you!
