Waging Spiritual War

There are numerous references in the Bible about Christianity being a battle and Christians as soldiers. But it’s not a battle using guns and bombs. It’s more like the cyber warfare nations wage against each other in casting misinformation and misleading people, spreading fear and anxiety. There is a real enemy in this war. Satan is our enemy. We are warned that we should “not be ignorant of his devices.” Waging Spiritual War” shows how to understand Satan’s strategies and how to defeat them.

Do you know how to swing the sword of the spirit?
