The Believer's Guide to Spiritual Warfare

I finished reading 2 books recently.

The Bait of Satan-John Bevere (Deals with offfense.) The other book The Devil's Door-(deals with how Christians can open the door to the enemy, most of the time unknowingly.)

The latest book I have begun is "The Believer's Guide to Spiritual Warfare" is by Thomas White.
Another great deal from Paperbackswap.

The Believer's Guide to Spiritual Warfare: Wising Up to Satan's Influence in Your World [Book]

Here is a snippet of what I read yesterday.

"Here is the challenge to the church: Those who are awake and alert in Christ, endowed with discernment and wisdom, must recognize that the arch-enemy of Christ is staging a strategic move to deceive and destroy people. The role of the redeemed is to wake up, sound a call to arms, and actively wage war against these schemes in the name and power of God. Our purpose is not to prevent the final manifestation of evil, as allowed by God. Our purpose is redemptive, to allow the Holy Spirit to wrench people free from the snares of Satan's deception."

As I meditated on this that scripture came to mind about snatching those from the fire. (Jude 1:23).

The job of the enemy is to deceive and in doing so-destroy. The Holy Spirit-heals and brings truth- and leads us into truth-as we allow him. As we are led by the Holy Spirit-we will be able to help those held in bondage escape the snares/lies of the enemy. We must be on guard to do so, as he mentions we must be awake. There are so many things today that try to claim our attention, and dull our awareness. Even as the times of our culture try to sway us into political correctness-instead of calling all sin-sin. (This is a delusion.) We must take care and not be like the frog in the boiling pot. (That only stays in as it grows warmer and warmer-until it is too late.)
