Spiritual Warfare is an awareness of the spiritual dynamics taking place around us in order to engage in spiritual conflict using our God given resources.
“A war of universal proportions pitting God and His truth against Satan and his lies. It’s a battle of wills between God and Satan. It’s a cosmic conflict that involves God and the highest creature He ever made and it filters down to every human being. Satan and his army of demons are fighting Christ, His holy angels, the nation of Israel, and believers. The battle lines are clearly drawn.”
John MacArthur, How to Meet the Enemy
“Be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil” (Romans 16:19)
“Do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you but rejoice that your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20)
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed…
[the world] the ways of this world and of
[the devil] the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying
[the flesh] the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath
Recognizing Satan’s Lies (Gen. 3:1-5)
1 John 2:15)
1 Tim. 6:12)
Satan shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire
(Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10)
But until then….
We are always in spiritual warfare.
Almighty and Sovereign God, God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, I/we come to you in the power of the Holy Spirit. We ask you to search out and bring to light any unconfessed in or act of wickedness committed in this place and drive away any lingering spirits of the kingdom of darkness. In Jesus’ name I bind any spirits who would seek to exert any influence in this dwelling. We acknowledge Father that this is your property. Cleanse and sanctify this place through the blood of the cross and fill it with your presence and glory.
Use this home for your purposes. Set angels at the boundaries of this property to shield and protect the members of my family (give names) from all evil influences. I proclaim that the scepter of the wicked will not remain over this home. I pray this through the name that is above every name, that of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
