                            WAR OF THE SPIRIT

 

     For though we walk in the flash, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses...... and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

 

                                             2 Cor 10:3-4, 5b

 

     In our warring against disobedience to God and against our own flesh, we must realize that our battle is not og the flesh, but it is of the spirit.

 

     We are first spirit, then flesh and soul. Our flesh and our soulish parts will attempt to gain advantage and cause us to sin. The enemy will try to engage us through these areas. But, we must strive in spirit to overcome.

 

     As Paul wrote, we do not war according to our flesh. The real battle is in the spirit. We must pull down "strongholds" which are those places in our mind and/or our flesh which is more easily tempted. By warring in the spirit, we can do this.

 

     But, our primary weapon is the Spirit of God. Through the power of His Spirit which indwells us, we can resist and overcome. We must stand and defeat the stronghold. By the power of our Christ, we can win the victory.
