INTRODUCTION TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE
And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. I Corinthians 15:49
We have all inherited the sin of Adam, cursed because of his disobedience and failure to defeat Satan in the first attack on humanity in the garden. This is why we all have to be saved by the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, because we have all sinned!
Though we are born in the image of Adam, when we are born again we bear a new image, the image of the Son of God, a new weaponized supernatural being, filled with His Spirit and equipped with all the power and authority of our Lord! No longer just old sinners saved by grace, we are New Creations in Christ!
Satan attacked the first family and overwhelmed them with his charm and deceit, but his plan to trap the Son of the living God failed miserably by underestimating his divine opponent! Though he tried every trick in his little book of lies, Jesus used our weapon of warfare, the word of God to defeat him, sending him fleeing back into darkness.
"Behold!" The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
