The SUPERNATURAL battle

 

Romans 8:5

King James Version

5 For they that are after the flesh 

do mind the things of the flesh; 

but they that are after the Spirit 

the things of the Spirit.


Perhaps, the mind is the last frontier of our spirit.

That's why the devil tries to corrupt it.

Through lust, pride, greed, envy, alcohol, vanity.

And mind-altering substances.

Constantly bombarding us with filth.

And lustful desires.

With man non the wiser.

Thinking it's all physiological.

And not supernatural.


The Bible tells us about the battle for our minds, bodies, and spirits.

Which happens in the unseen world.

From the unseen enemy:

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded 

the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


Ephesians 2:2

King James Version

2 Wherein in time past ye walked 

according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh 

in the children of disobedience:


Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 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.


1 Peter 5:8-9

King James Version

8 Be sober, be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished 

in your brethren that are in the world.


Revelation 12:12

King James Version

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, 

and ye that dwell in them. 

Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! 

for the devil is come down unto you, 

having great wrath, 

because he knoweth that he hath but 

a short time.


That's what we're all up against.

We're in a supernatural battle.

With the devil intent on destroying our souls.

By corrupting our minds, bodies, and spirits.

But GOD doesn't want anyone to perish.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.


The very reason He sent His Son, JESUS.

John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him 

might be saved.


In JESUS is our salvation.

In Satan, our destruction.

It's really as simple as that.

The articles below tell us of the ways of Satan.

As well as how to guard ourselves against the LORD's enemy.

Now, it's time to know about the MIND of CHRIST.

That's for the next post.
