In warfare, soldiers must learn to obey the orders of their commanding officers. A major part of our challenge is to first know who is our commanding officer, which spirit is motivating us to behave or act in a certain way, and to respond intelligently in the light of what God reveals. Soldiers and Generals must know who their opponent is, his thinking strategies, characteristics (HIS WAYS); in order to conquer and defeat the enemy. Well this is how God feels for his followers. How can we put up a defense to protect us and an offense to conquer on an enemy that we know nothing about? Thanks be to God, he has taught us not only our enemies every move; but how to "crush his head".
He has given us everything we will ever need to live victoriously. As we march through this rough but yet rewarding terrene, we will be fully equipped to take on the enemy with all his schemes, lies, blames, and deceptiveness. God has given us every weapon we will ever need in overcoming our enemy. So "put on the whole armor on God,that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil",(Ephesians 5:24)...
Your brother in Christ,
Apostle Justin Thomley
