Need To Fight? Roll up Your Sleeves by Elaine Davenport Wednesday, August 20, 2008

August 18, 2008

First off, that’s a bad picture.  If you want to fight Satan; open your mouth and get into agreement with God.  Start speaking the Word over and to your situation.

We get flooded with mail here and much of it can be summed up the same way. People want to know how to fight. Instead of talking about what you’re doing wrong…let me talk about what I was doing wrong.

First off, I was caught off guard because I never wanted to fight the devil. I would have rather minded my own business. I figured if I didn’t bother him he wouldn’t bother me. Unfortunately, it don’t work that way. However, since the devil don’t care…I’m prepared to fight him by knowing that I have Authority over him and I know my rights and I plead the Blood!

The bible warns us in Ephesians 6: 10-18

Before we read it below let’s talk about some stuff that will help you in your time of trouble. Many of the important products that you buy come with a warning. That warning is there to protect you from harm. It’s there because something happened to somebody else more than once and somebody wants to help you from making a mistake. It’s a Blessing because without it you might not ordinarily know.

That in mind, read Ephesians below:

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

PAY ATTENTION…TRUST GOD’S STRENGTH

11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

GET DRESSED FOR A FIGHT! THE DEVIL’S GOT SOME TRICKS BUT YOU CAN STAND AGAINST THEM….PREPARE!

12For 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.

YOU’RE FIGHTING SOME EVIL, SOME DARKNESS, SOME SPIRITUAL BAD GUYS OF A HIGH ORDER!

13Wherefore 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.

GOD HAS EQUIPMENT FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO TOUGH IT THROUGH…PAY ATTENTION!

14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

YOUR LOINS WILL HOLD TRUTH, PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS LIKE A BREASTPLATE…YES….DO IT!

15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY!

16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

A FAITH SHIELD CAN’T BE PENETRATED!

SATAN WILL SHOOT FIERY DARTS AT YOU: RECOGNIZE!

17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

GET IN THE WORD, GET IT IN YOUR HEART, LET IT COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH! FAITH HEARS AND FAITH SPEAKS!

18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

ALL FORMS OF PRAYER AND PRAYER IN THE SPIRIT! MAKE A HUMBLE PETITION FOR THE SAINTS AND PERSEVERE IN THIS ENDEAVOR!
