It’s Time for Believers to Put on the Full Armor of God—And Go to Battle

by | Feb 18, 2021 | Spiritual Warfare

Jesus warned us about these days. The apostle Paul warned us that we are not battling against flesh and blood. It has never been more evident that we are in a spiritual battle against evil forces coming against our beloved country. It is up to Spirit-filled Christians to take authority and use the weapons and armor God has provided. God is not an enabler. He is not going to do something for us that He has the authority to do. We have the power to cast out demons. We have the power to overthrow the works of the enemy. It does not happen unless we use our authority by operating in total faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. God delegated authority and power to us. We have the Holy Spirit of God dwelling within us. It is up to us to exercise the power that God gave us and stop allowing the enemy to run rampant over our country and our family.

In my latest episode of Self Talk on the Charisma Podcast Network, I talk about defeating evil in a world gone mad. The apostle Paul wrote explicitly about God’s armor. The armor protects us, but it also allows us to swing a sword. Godly authority is powerless unless it is exercised. In my interview with Dr. Steve Wittmann, we discuss in clear terms how to put on the armor of God and prepare for battle. Like most Christians, I am grieved in my spirit by what I see happening in our nation. As a vital part of spiritual warfare, we also need to hear anointed Christians’ prophetic voices. True prophecy is the voice of God, and that voice has the power to overthrow the works of the devil. {eoa}
