Spiritual warfare – in the hands of Christ

Don’t be bound. Let the hand of Christ handle your outer conflicts and spiritual battles. The child of God is automatically blessed with this benefit. The “authority of Christ” shadows over the child of God without asking. Reason? Spirit connection is made with God through the Holy Spirit’s presence. You are God’s ownership and property. Demonic influence and Devils are subject to His property – which is under the authority of Christ. Demons  flee as the supremacy of Christ abounds with “all power and dominion”.

Eph 1:20-22…Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come, And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

The weapon?  The presence of Christ our Lord, the head of all things.  The Biblical word head… simply means, authority.

The weapons of our outer conflicts in life are not carnal or something we should handle ourselves.  Our weapons are mighty because of the power and presence of Christ – to the pulling down of strongholds.

2 Cor 10:3-4…For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Christ is the only authority in the child of God’s life. Not the believer himself. Scriptures teach – Devils and demons believe in Him…but tremble.

James 2:19…the devils also believe, and tremble.

Afflictions and persecutions  come – but out of them all the Lord  delivers. God takes care of His children.

Ps 34:19…Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

2 Tim 3:11…Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

Wrestle not! Struggle not!  You are clothed with the “Full armor of God” because you are saved and sanctified. The hand of God is upon you. Don’t get yourself entangled with the affairs of this life which cause men to struggle. Endure hardness as a good soldier. He is mighty – He loves you – and He will take care of you.

2 Tim 2:3-4… Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Soldiers (members of the body of Christ) are supported by the – Head (the one in authority) which is the person of Christ. Christ is over you and omnipresent…even unto the end of the world.

Matt 28:20…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

Flesh and blood are helpless and powerless to Spiritual and demonic opposition. Christ is in control of your battles in life. Not us! The battles with spiritual wickedness in high places are His.

Eph 6:12-13…For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand

Not a burden for Christ. He never loses a battle. Trust Him to make you a winner. Trust His power and presence…not false teaching or opinions of men. You have His seal. You are clothed with His blessing. His glory “repels” demons.  His authority says, “Go”…and demons leave…even before the day of Judgment.

Matthew 8: 29-32…And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, “Go”.

They went because He is Lord! They recognized His authority. Judgement day is coming…but until then – All power is given to Him in Heaven and on Earth. Today, He has power over demons and scorpions. Today He has power over flesh and Spirit. Today He has power in the visible and invisible realms. Christ has power over all physical and spiritual forms.

Warfare is Christ’s . By faith in Him – Let Him handle your battles!

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    Reblogged this on Africa's Orphans and commented:
    In Christ, we are protected, but as Christians, we have a mandate to look after the weak every day of the week. It is a principle, based on a promise, bound before the throne in prayer.
    The principle: In Him we are one.
    The promise: Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.
    How?
    Via the prayer: Make them ONE, Father, as We are ONE!
