10 Mistakes People Make with Spiritual Warfare (plus 1 bonus)

Archangel Michael Tramples SatanLightning fast post meant to make you think…

10 Mistakes People Make with Spiritual Warfare (plus 1 bonus):

1. Don’t believe there is such a thing as a devil (Satan, the fallen angel once called “Lucifer”). (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:12-17; Luke 10:18) Introduction to Warfare
2. Think the devil knows everything (Satan is limited in his reasoning abilities ~ for one thing, he can not know what you’re thinking). The Enemy
3. Are not consistently and regularly feeding on the Word of God and wonder why they are suffering defeat (we must be reading, meditating on and memorizing the Holy Scriptures and then putting them into practice in our lives). (Matthew 7:24-27; James 2:18-20) The Full Armor of God
4. Overlook the danger of pride when they move in power. (Luke 9:49-50) Tips for the Trenches
5. Believe everything they hear from a popular preacher (false prophets are rampant in the last days ~ test the spirits). (1 John 4:1-6) Tips for the Trenches
6. Forget their weapons are not physical in nature, but spiritual (and we are not fighting people by the way). (Zechariah 4:6; Matthew 26:41; Ephesians 6:12) The Weapons / Battlefield
7. Are not walking in the reality that they are completely forgiven (our sins are covered by the blood of Jesus by faith; the “breastplate of righteousness” is the righteousness of Christ given freely by God to the person who surrenders his life to Him; think of it as a bullet proof vest that protects police officers; the “breastplate of righteousness” protects our vital organs including the heart). (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 John 1:7; Ephesians 6:14b) The Full Armor of God
8. Don’t see themselves like God sees them (don’t discount yourself in your own eyes). (Judges 6:1-22; 7:1-8, 16-22) War Stories
9. See a demon under every rock (behind everything that happens). Introduction to Warfare
10. Go around without their spiritual armor on (they’re naked spiritually ~ remember “streaking” in the 1970s?). (Ephesians 6:13-18) Introduction to Warfare

BONUS Forget that their greatest single weapon against the powers of darkness is a relationship with God that is vital and growing. (Luke 10:20; Acts 19:11-17) Tips for the Trenches
