A Heart For God: 7 Points on Spiritual Warfare (plus 3 bonus points)

7 Points on Spiritual Warfare (plus 3 bonus points)

"Five times I received from the Jews thirty-nine lashes. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep." (2 Corinthians 11:24-25)

If you've been a believer in Jesus Christ for very long, you've come under the attack of the evil one. You've faced spiritual warfare! (Amen?) It's only natural (supernatural) because you are a threat to the enemy. You (and the message you carry) are able to free people who are under Satan's rule and ownership. (And he doesn't much like that.)

I was in a street boxing match in the front yard of a friend's house with others watching. I was getting in some good punches (if I say so myself). I was holding my own. That's when it hit me out of nowhere~Pow! A left hook (from a lefty). And I was down. Everyone was stunned. (Me the most.) The truth be told: I never trained for that fight. I never prepared myself. I just put on the gloves one day, got in the "ring" and started swinging. (Wiiiiiiish. Woooooosh.) It wasn't enough. That's why I lost. That's why I got beat. And so it is in the spiritual realm. It isn't enough to just put on the gloves one day. We must become disciplined/equipped or we just won't last quite frankly. (Luke 22:31-32)

It is to this end that I've come up with the following 7 points on spiritual warfare. It was first broadcast on Twitter in 7 tweets (a "tweetcast" ~ each is 140 characters or less). So if any of you got the chance to already see it, I've added 3 bonus points you won't want to miss at the end.

And so here we go with...
