Insights on Spiritual Warfare

by Walter Martin

an article from the From the Founder column of the Christian Research Newsletter, Volume 6: Number 4, 1993.

The Editor of the Christian Research Newsletter is Ron Rhodes.

Christians need to recognize the reality of spiritual conflict and warfare. We are born in conflict -- against the world, against our carnal natures, and against the Devil. And if you do not know the nature of your enemy -- if you do not know who your foes are -- you can't fight. It's only when you realize what you're up against that you can be victorious.

The Bible says we must stand against such foes as Christian soldiers (2 Tim. 2:4). When God calls you into the church of Jesus Christ, you have enlisted in the army of God. You can truthfully sing, "Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war," because you are at war.

The moment you enlist in the army of God, you personally become a target. You need to remember that if you're living for and walking with Jesus Christ, the powers of darkness are aligned against you. You are on Satan's hit list! The following four principles will help you be victorious in spiritual warfare as a Christian soldier.

These words were excerpted and adapted from the tape, "Spiritual Warfare" (C-147). It can be ordered from CRI for $6.00.
