LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS 6:12( NASB)
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
1. There are certain secrets you can only learn from your spiritual attacks ,that you will never learn anywhere. 1 cor 2:7 (NLT)"No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God--his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began." . God has kept some hidden truths in your warfare , very dangerous secrets . find it , ignore the attacks and find it , is there . Once you get it ...hmm.
2. Spiritual attacks only assures you of one thing . your Deliverance is not far . So never panic for any devil bragging over your life . It is coming according to scripture, Amen.joel 2:32 " And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call."
3. When you are attacked , your faith is put to test . 1 peter 1:7 (NLT)"These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold--though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world."
4. Your attacks is only meant to discourage you ; don't give up . Heb 10 :38 (NIV)"And, "But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back."
5. The bigger the attack the bigger the testimony. Is closely related to the law of sowing and reaping . 2 cor 9:6b (NIV)"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously." So the smaller the attack , the smaller the testimony will be . So if yours is big . rejoice , Amen. Your testimony is going to be big in Jesus name , Amen.
6. The greater the reproach, the greater the celebration will be .why? There is no way , you will leave this earth without God first giving you your reward . Is not possible .psalm 58:11 (NLT)"Then at last everyone will say, "There truly is a reward for those who live for God; surely there is a God who judges justly here on earth."
7. God allows an attack at times , to test the level of our strenght in the word .prov 24:5 "A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength".
8.If you refuse to bend , the attack must bend. Isa 60:14(NIV)"The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel."
9.If you refuse to give up ; God will show up . Dan 3:25(NLT)""Look!" Nebuchadnezzar shouted. "I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!"
10. When you tell the Devil NO ; God says YES . 2 Cor 1:20 (NLT)"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God."
I PRAY FOR YOU ; WHATEVER SPIRITUAL ATTACKS YOU ARE EXPERIENCING IN YOUR LIFE , SHALL ALL TURN INTO A TESTIMONY IN THE NAME OF JESUS , AMEN.
