OUR WEAPONS OF WAR
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Matthew 3:11
Our most powerful weapon of spiritual war is the Holy Spirit, without witch we could not fight the powers of darkness. In the Marine Corps they had us fire many of the weapons in their arsenal, but none of these mighty weapons were any good without ammunition!
The Holy Spirit is our Divine ammunition that gives us power to defeat our enemies. The Greek word for power, dunamis actually is translated, dynamite! When the Bible uses the word dunamis, it never refers to our strength or ability but rather to His power through us. It is His power alone that keeps us, while forming our character as we glorify Him.
As we look at our powerful arsenal of spiritual weapons we must realize that the battle ultimately is His and He will prevail! Our part is to submit to His will in everything and be baptized in His Holy Spirit!
O give us help against the adversary, for deliverance by man is in vain. Through God we shall do valiantly, and it is He who will tread down our adversaries. Psalm 60:11,12
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
