Warrior of God
WHEN GOD'S WARRIORS GO DOWN ON THEIR KNEES ,THE BATTLE IS NOT OVER. IT HAS JUST BEGUN!!
Waging war has been continual throughout the history of God’s Church. Paul could clearly see that from his day forward, all Christians would engage in struggles, conflicts and real battles against evil forces.
Like Timothy, upon our conversion and baptism, we were put into the Church—inducted as soldiers into the army of God. We did not volunteer; we were drafted (John 13:18; 15:16). Yet, we are not aphysical army fighting with physical weapons of war. Nor do we fight against a physical foe. As the Church of the living God, we are a spiritual army. And we are at war—engaged in spiritual warfare!
Paul admonished the Corinthians of this very fact, telling them, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds)” (II Cor. 10:3-4).
Every good soldier will study his enemy to determine his strengths and weaknesses. And to be able to defeat the enemy, he must know how to deftly use, with overwhelming force, the weapons at his disposal.
