When someone enlists in and signs up for the army, marines, coast guard or any other great military branch, they know they are signing up for a fight.
They get extensive training on ‘who’ the enemy is, and learn strategic warfare strategies to defeat the enemy.
When you sign up to be on God’s team you are voluntarily enlisting in the biggest war, (that is real) against the greatest enemy, (that is real.)
And just like there are some who never make it out of boot camp training in the military, there are those who never make it out of the Spiritual Warfare boot-camp training that each of us have to go through to survive!
The United States military has had a long list of great and legendary generals and leaders. All of them have one thing in common. They all understood who the real enemy was and learned as much as they could about the enemy’s tricks, schemes and strategies.
If we are going to be successful in this war, then we better learn who the real enemy is and how he operates so we can overcome him in Jesus name!
Here is his mission statement: Steal-Kill-Destroy—any questions?
He hates you with a sick twisted mind that can never change. He will always hate you and he hates you more now because you have accepted Jesus Christ. He wants you dead—period!!
Anchor 10 at Encounter tells us to get dressed daily for battle by putting on God’s armor and taking my thoughts captive.
Tomorrow night at Encounter we are going to learn how to get dressed for battle and secure victory! We are not going to be a prisoner of war any longer but an overcomer!
The intention of our enemy will be made clear. The plan to defeat him will be made clear. Victory is waiting for you. All you have to do is show up and pick up your battle plan and win this fight!
All you have to do is say enough is enough, I am not going to let my emotions, my feelings, my circumstances, my fears, my insecurities, my doubts, and other people keep me from Encounter so I can secure this victory and stop living in defeat.
Please know that I am praying for you and I have been all week. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night for your spiritual warfare boot camp training session that will change your life!
Greater is He that lives in you than he that lives in the world. 1 John 4:4
