How to PROTECT ourselves in SPIRITUAL battle


And take the helmet of salvation, 
and the sword of the Spirit, 
which is the word of God:

Ephesians 6:17 

King James Version

If your heart is in JESUS, you'd know we're battling a spiritual war, where the "assassins" are sly, slick, cruel, and unseen.

You will not be in any form of denial or ignorance, feigned, or real.

The enemy's strategy is distraction, confusion, and division, with the objective of destruction.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you 

the whole armour of God

that ye may be able to withstand 

in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

Ephesians 6:12-13 

King James Version

Here is the "whole armour of God":

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth, 

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer 

and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;

Ephesians 6:14-18 

King James Version

These enemies of JESUS wish to see our souls destroyed.

Of course, you can only see what is being done to us, if you look through the "eyes" of the HOLY SPIRIT, who guides, comforts, and reminds us about Jesus' teachings.

I believe I've had enough dreams and visions to know what's being done, and what's being planned.

Some of them have already materialized.

You can read sample chapters from my 22 "fiction" books on spiritual warfare.

Our ONLY hope is in CHRIST.

He already defeated the devil, who once had power over death.

But we all continue to sin.

Many don't even know they're sinning, as I did, at one point in my life.

But God listens to prayers, and if your heart is real, He will send the HOLY SPIRIT, so you will know who JESUS is, what power the LORD has over sin, and what you need to correct within yourself.

God won't care if you're a philantrophist, or seemingly a kind person.

By the GRACE of GOD we are saved through faith, and not by good works.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

Ephesians 2:8 

King James Version

There is no hiding of the soul, and intentions, from God.

He knows all the fibers of our heart.

He knows what each one of us is made of.

Without His SPIRIT, we won't even have life.

7 And the Lord God formed man 

of the dust of the ground, 

and breathed into his nostrils 

the breath of life; 

and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:7 

King James Version

The choices we make in life invite the devil, or make him flee.

They flee at the NAME of JESUS.

Won't you want to be Jesus' own?

Stay CLOSEST to JESUS in these most perilous times.

Learn to LOVE the LORD with ALL your heart, and aim to serve Him with all you've got, for we believers and faithful servants have much to do for our "sleeping" brothers and sisters.

You won't know how asleep you've been, till you wake up.
