Spiritual Weapons

During our 40 Days to Breakthrough we looked at what was given to us in terms of spiritual weaponry. The six mentioned in the booklet being; the name of Jesus; the blood of the Lamb (Jesus); the power of the Holy Spirit; the Word of God; prophetic words and finally, worship. 

Notice these are not natural weapons at all, rather they are supernatural weapons because that is where their significance and power is unleashed with consequences that affect this natural realm. In fact the Bible explains what happens when these weapons are activated by the believer; 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 : "For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.". Satan sets up counter arguments and mindsets opposite to the intents and purposes of God. With these in place he holds people captive. When a person, or people group, hold on long enough to these ways, strongholds are formed which eventually translate into oppressed lives under the control of darkness. A classical example would be Hinduism where poverty, suffering and a resignation to a life of oppression is the norm. I’m sure there are many such examples. When we walk out God’s lifestyle backed by the power of our weapons, the result is strongholds come down, the Kingdom of God expands and people are set free; "they are taken out of darkness and brought into His marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9).
