Why do we bring up the subject of spiritual warfare? We do so because if we are going to be true worshipers of God, now more than ever before we need to be knowledgeable in the art of spiritual warfare. We need to know the enemy — his tactics and his ways — because, believe me, we are going to need this wisdom! If we want to survive these “end times,” we really have no other option than to learn how to fight the enemy and how to do warfare for ourselves, as well as all those for whom we pray.
Therefore, part of our prayer time in the Holy Place must be concerned with asking the Father to expose the enemy, to bind him in Jesus’ Name and to loose any strongholds that have been established.
When we are lukewarm Christians, having only a “form of godliness” (2 Timothy 3:5), the devil doesn’t really seem to bother with us. Why should he? As my Chuck often says, “Many of us are undercover Christians — i.e. no one knows we are,” so the enemy leaves us alone. Let us begin to worship and love the Lord with all our heart, mind and soul. Then, watch out! We’re in for a real battle!
