The Battle

Page history last edited by pinkhamc@... 3 years ago

This is a page dedicated to strategies and tales of the battle against the enemy.  Created 19 11 06

 

What it takes to win the battle

This from Chris: "The battle is won through the blood of the Lamb, the word of your testimony, the armor of God, the sword of the Spirit, and prayer."1  19 11 06

 

We discussed how the sword of the Spirit (the Word of God) is included twice in this list.  We concluded that in the armor it is the only offensive weapon.  As such, it deserves to be singled out from that list.  Yet, upon deeper thought, much in this list is intended to be defensive and offensive, yet it still seems appropriate to include the sword in this list.
