Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare” (1Tim 1:18).
Greetings to God’s family. Be reassured that God is love.
Everyone fights the various battles of life, whether he or she believes in God or not. You don’t have to be a believer to KNOW that you need treatment or help when you are seriously unwell. Life is a battle.
Unfortunately, some believers are under the impression that once you have given your life to Christ, they don’t need to do anything. Jesus will do everything. This is absolute spiritual ignorance. In life, you sow before you reap. You reap what you sow. Merely reciting ‘it’s not my portion’ is not enough.
In our memory verse above, apostle Paul charged his spiritual son, Timothy, to war a good warfare. The Word says Jesus came to earth to destroy the works of the devil (1John 3:8).
As spiritual Christians, let us go about our duties daily with the consciousness of the fact we are at war at all times-at our places of work, within our families, in our ministries, within our communities etc. We must also be conscious of the fact the war we are called to fight is spiritual, not physical. “For we wrestles not against flesh and blood” (Ephesians 6:12).
Every true believer is a soldier of the cross. Jesus is the Captain of the army of heaven. He rides in a white horse. His names include: Truth, Faithful Righteousness (Rev 19:11). and the Word of God (verse 13). He wages war with sword from his mouth: And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword (Rev 19:15).
The weapons of our warfare are the words of our mouth.
Brethren, we are at war. We need knowledge to win the war. It’s is a spiritual war. It is a war between light and darkness. It is a war between good and evil. It is a war between right and wrong. It’s a war between knowledge and ignorance. It is a war between perfection and imperfection. It is a war against all forms of captivity and oppressions. It is a war against poverty. It is a war against sicknesses and diseases. It is a war against accident. It is a war against untimely death. It is a war against seduction and manipulation. It is a war against anxiety, fear, doubt, and unbelief. It is a war against unfaithfulness and insincerity. It is a war against laziness and idleness. It is a war against pretence and hypocrisy. It is a war against coldness and lukewarmness. It is a war against falsehood, gossiping, hatred, unforgiveness and lies. It is a war against wickedness, in all forms. It is a war against Satan, devils, demons and their cohorts.
It is a war in defence of truth, sincerity, humility, faithfulness, openness, righteousness, honesty, integrity, transparency, divine health, knowledge and love. Our Captain, Jesus Christ, is in charge. Let us follow his examples. His name is Righteousness. His name is Truth. His name is Faithful.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Matt 5:48)
Stay connected with Jesus Christ, the Word, the Spirit of God, the Way, the Truth and the Life. The only one whom the fullness of God the Father dwells.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8).
CHANGE, CONNECT, LIVE (CCL).
Dear Father, please give us the grace to war a good warfare against all forms of darkness in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Thank you Jesus. Blood of Jesus
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
