SPIRITUAL WARFARE Pastor Phillips Koh
A spiritual shiftAn unhealthy preoccupation with the spirit world today
“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.” The prophetic words of CS Lewis (in the book The Screwtape Letters)
Not fair to tar all charismatics with the same brush Attacking the teaching rather than the person
Ephesians 6:10-20 • The Greek verb here is “wrestle” not “attack” • The spiritual weapons are mainly defensive in nature • The emphasis falls on the believer taking the following steps– • to stand firm (verse 11) • to resist (verse 13) • to stand firm (verse 14)
This is confirmed by the teaching on the Lord’s Prayer: “Deliver us from the Evil One” What important lesson can we draw from Ephesians 6?
