Joel 3:9

Say to the nations far and wide:

    “Get ready for war!

Call out your best warriors.

    Let all your fighting men advance for the attack.

We are in the state of war.

Our enemy’s goal is to destroy God’s people. He made this world to be destructive which would take our faces away from God. He blinded the minds who don’t believe in God’s word.  He deceived the world.  He said in Isaiah 14:13-14;

For you said to yourself,

    ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars.

I will preside on the mountain of the gods

    far away in the north.

I will climb to the highest heavens

    and be like the Most High.’

so always be on alert. We are not ignorant of Satan’s strategy.

Be ready and put on the full armor of God so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.(Ephesians 6:11). Walk with the commander and familiarize his way.


We are fighting against evil (Ephesians 6:12) so watch out  for your great enemy (1 Peter 5:8)


Always remember, Christianity is impossible to win without God. Arm yourself with full protection by putting on God’s full armor (Ephesians 6:14-17). It is because the devil fights with lies. The devil doesn’t stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. He is covered with lies so conquer it with the truth.  Abide the truth so that you will be protected all the attacks of Satan (John 14:6). Live your life out of lie.

We are in the state of war. Enemies goal is to pull as away from God;
“Satan continues his efforts to make sin less offensive, heaven less appealing, hell less horrific and the Gospel less urgent.” – John MacArthur

Rely on God’s righteousness because he have the words of eternal life (John 6:68).  Christ is the son of the living God (Matthew 16:16). Nothing to worry about everything. We will not fight for victory but FROM victory.
