2nd Corinthians 10:3-5

This Week: Spiritual warfare to some is just as strange as science fiction.  They look at the term with suspicion.  And yet the Bible speaks with certainty about the reality of spiritual warfare in our lives.  All this week on CrossHope, we discuss what the Apostle Paul told the church at Corinth about that warfare in chapter 10 of Second Corinthians, verses 3-5.  What he says may surprise you!

Monday – We begin with a true story of a man sharing the pain of knowing that his son was in the Normand invasion of June of 1944.  He tells of his prayers for protection of his son in warfare.  We transition into the subject of spiritual warfare by talking about the results and fallout of that warfare all around us.  What are they in your life?

Tuesday – Sooner or later in life you will realize that the struggle you face in life involves more than just “people or circumstances”.  We do live in a spiritual world as well as a physical world. We quote C.S. Lewis who describes the two extremes that people believe about Satan and evil in our world. Both extremes are wrong; yet that warfare is real in our culture.  It’s real in your life and mine!

Wednesday – Paul says that “though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.”  Being in the world is different from being of the world.  We explain the difference.  Then he says that the weapons we use are not the weapons of the world.  We describe what those special weapons are.  You and I need to at least know what they are.

Thursday – We talk about spiritual strongholds in our lives.  What is a spiritual stronghold?  The answer is in the word itself.  A stronghold is anything in life that has strong hold on my mind, spirit or soul.  Is there something in your life that in your heart, you know has a strong hold on your life?  Most people can think of something.  Paul says that we “demolish” strongholds that are counterproductive in our lives.

Friday – The spiritual weapons we possess are both offensive and defensive.  Why?  We need both in the struggle of life.  We close by talking about Paul’s comment that we even “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”  Everything in our lives flows out of our thought life, whether we know it or not.  According to Jesus, every sin has its origin in our minds and thoughts.  Most people realize that is true.  Spiritual warfare is either true or false.  What’s your verdict?

  7. My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.

  9. I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.
