Spiritual warfare is a reality that faces Christians every day. Their daily walk with the Lord and fight with Satan affects every aspect of their life: their personal victory, the state of their families, their interaction with the world around them, and their ultimate service and performance on earth. Every Christian finds himself harassed and under the relentless hand of the enemy. Spiritual casualties surround us on every side. Luke warmness, defeat, and compromise seem to be the order of day. Deep within the heart of every true Christian stands a hunger to please his Master. This book focuses on that deep cry-the spiritual seed within. It equips the child of God and steadies him to a life of spiritual fulfillment in Christ as he fights and wins spiritual battles. Nobody is born a natural spiritual fighter. Like any army which recruits soldiers and trains them before releasing them to the battle field, the Christian soldier likewise has to be trained. His training is crucial knowing that the enemy he is fighting does not give him a chance to train before launching his attacks. Prayer and Spiritual Warfare equips and encourages the believer to effectively stand against the deceptive schemes of Satan by applying scriptural truths. It teaches the nature of the spiritual battle, what it takes to win battles, and weapons that are used to fight in this warfare. It trains God's soldiers to receive and obey orders from the war General-God. It discloses the deceptive schemes of the enemy and equips believers to deal with opposition and stand their ground in battle. It exalts Christ and points to His role in spiritual warfare. It weaves practical modern day- 21st century- struggles that face Christians and the church as a whole with scriptural truths of God's Word to combat spiritual apathy. Yes! Christians can fight the enemy with courage and be the light of the world today.
Spiritual warfare is a factual reality of our earthly existence. -Jesus said, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force" (Matt11:12). Christians have angelic help in this battle. -Jesus said to Peter who struck off the ear of the servant of the High Priest, "Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and He shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?" (Matt 26:53). We are all enlisted as soldiers of the cross -Paul said to Timothy his young prot g, "Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life" (2Tim 3-4). Our adversary is the Devil who searches out his victims for devouring Apostle Peter identified the invisible enemy by name. "Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1Peter 5:8). It is therefore imperative that Believers have to fight "When we sign up to be Christians, we automatically enter into warfare. It is not a matter of preference..../.We continually allow Satan whom we know was defeated, to push us around and take advantage of us. We often act more like victims than the victors Christ intended us to be" - (Spiritual warfare for every Christian pp.20 by Dean Sherman with Bill Payne).
