Your Key to Spiritual Warfare

Key to Spiritual Warfare by Adrian Beale

As the New Testament points out, our battle is not, ‘against flesh and blood’, but against, ‘spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.’

The foundation of all spiritual weaponry is the word of God in our hearts, or as Paul puts it in outlining the Armor of God, ‘Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth…’. In this passage Paul is referring to having our hearts living in the landscape of the kingdom fed by the written word of God.

However, in that place he anticipates more: quickened scriptures, revelation, prophetic words, dreams and visions to enable us to go on the offensive with ‘…the sword of the Spirit, which is the word (rhema) of God.’

In this vein, he commands Timothy to wage war according to the prophecies that have been given him.

‘This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.’ 1 Timothy 1:18

Now a ‘charge’ is a command not an option. It is a ‘must do.’ Every believer has times when he needs to pull out the list of prophecies, dreams, visions and quickened scriptures and ‘strengthen’ himself by supplanting all opposition with the promises of God.

In that place, it is critically important what comes out of our mouths. Like Joshua’s men circling Jericho we are charged that, ‘no word shall proceed out of your mouth.’ That is, no word that is contrary to what God has said should be released into the spirit realm to disempower the promises of God. This is, effectively, drawing up the garments of our loose thoughts around our hearts because we are in warfare.
