Spiritual Warfare

Category: Discernment

John MacMillan: Blind to the Devil?

   ~~ A fact that is anew being forced upon the consciousness of the church of Christ is that a great and aggressive warfare is being waged against her by unseen and powerful foes. The Scriptures have long revealed it, but few have given this warfare the attention which it requires. “Our wrestling,” the Apostle warns us, “is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenlies” (Eph. 6: 12). In the life of the Christian assembly, in the purity of its doctrine, in the fellowship of its members, and in their individual bodies and circumstances, subtle forces are working with keen understanding and masterful direction. The opposition is veiled, but it is real, and it is sometimes tremendous. Because its source is unrecognized, it is the more effective. The powers of evil are allowed often to have practically free course in groups of believers. Troubles that might be easily overcome, if rightly diagnosed, are laid to other causes, and because the remedy is not applied, the difficulties may increase until the very existence of the congregation is threatened.

Discernment: See the Angels Too!

A lot of christians with the gift of discernment are afflicted by seeing only the work of the enemy. There may be many reasons for this, but one of the reasons is because the angels are not moving. They remain out of sight, still, and unproductive because of our very own words. When we see the enemy or discover his plans, too often we only
speak what we see, thus … we end up agreeing with the plans of the enemy.

Let’s grow up and allow ourselves to believe God is bigger than ANYTHING The enemy can plan.

Example of Discernment

2 Corinthians 6:16
**What agreement [can there be between] a temple of God and idols? **For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

What a wonderful question. Understanding it will help you understand yourself a little better. You are a Temple of God. God lives in us, and among us are groups of people who are temples filled with idols. There is no agreement between us, Continue reading
