The extreme battle of warfare for the soul

Many times I have seen and dealt with people that have been brought face to face with “turning”. It’s like they are brought to the “door” once again. This door is the door of Repentance. It has repentance written all over it. It must be opened by God for sure, for one to enter in and receive remission of sins. But, one must with God’s divine help, put their hand on the knob. This door does not open on it’s own accord. One must be willing to turn when God, by His Spirit moves upon their heart.

Stubbornness and rebellion, which are Satan’s main tools, prevent one from grabbing the knob and turning.

It’s a war out there, for sure. All of us should be in this battle for souls in one form or another. If we are not in enteraction with lost people on a regular basis, then our only other warfare would be intersession warfare for souls of men.

When in the battlefield, we know the reality of this war first hand. If not in battle, of course we would not understand it’s extreme nature. Those of us who are, we see and partake first hand with the struggle between good and evil, stubbornness and rebellion, God and Satan, all for the souls of mankind. It is the most extreme warfare on the planet, let alone in the heavenly realm. It’s real to say the least.

If you deal with it (and you should in some fashion) on regular basis, then you know what I am talking about. No wonder we need the ARMOR of GOD on at all times! It’s WAR out there. And, it ain’t going away anytime soon. It’s intensity is increasing with each passing day.

Are you enlisted in this war? Have you said to God, “Here am I, send me?” Are you interested in defending God’s kingdom in the spiritual realm?

    Hey Richard! Great post…we are constantly reminded of this battle and warfare. I just read Ephesians 6 in my personal study time…and reminded to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. On my own, I am toast, but greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Amen!
