Our weapons for invisible warfare cannot come from any form of human effort or human design. Our weapons are divine in nature,
With supernatural ability given by God the HS to end every argument or breakdown any obstacle, verbal or physical.
With this power through God,
we can throw down and destroy any speculation that is contrary to the Bible,
Any arrogance or negativity will be contained, and then removed by the power and authority of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Faith that stabilizes the mind, because the object of that faith is deeply entrenched into their soul structure.
A teenage Shepherd, a poor farm boy and a slave from Egypt took on the armies of the Kingdom of Darkness. 1Cor 1:27 the weak will shame the strong.
Me, a primary particle of qualified negation, it expresses an absolute denial, meaning nothing, no or none or not.
Agenes- meaning base, someone born very low in society, having no family, someone ignorable with no reputation.
Exoutheneo- despised, of no account, contemptible.
Eimi, Greek term for already present, in existence and established. 1Cor 1:28 things that are.
God has chosen the lowest, most contemptible people, the ones who are nothing, so that He may destroy those established in the cosmic system, ones who are of good reputation.
The enemy of faith is fear. They are polar opposites…one chases the other from the soul structure of a person.
EPH 6:16 taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Paul is describing mental warfare!
Fear rises after doubt & worry have had time to commiserate in your brain then begin to transfer into your soul.
Worry is using your imagination and emotions to create something you do not want. Doubt is usually focusing on what you want and have not received.
1Sam 28:7-8 Saul says to his servants seek for me a woman who is a medium, he goes in disguise. He is irrational from fear.
They set their hearts and affections on earthly things; They love them, and even dote upon them, and have confidence and complacency in them. Rev. Matthew Henry
It took accuracy, practice and a great deal of confidence to hit the mark with a sling. Very similar to our spiritual walk at times.
