The Weapons of Our Warfare
Gen. James Green
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled” (2 Cor. 10:3-6, KJV).
To Fight or Not to Fight?
T HE DEBATE over the Christian’s place/responsibility in the world is ongoing. The RSV reads: “For though we live in the world we are not carrying on a worldly war…” (v. 3). Yet, when war does come (and it never seems to go away!), multitudes of professing Christians join the fighting forces of America (I did, but I was not an “informed” Christian either). I have written dozens of articles on this subject, but once again, let me stress that a born-again Christian must be loyal to Christ first and foremost. We all know that the shadow government—those anti-Christ psychopaths who are players in it—have zero respect for Christ, Christians and Christianity; they merely use them in their game called “WAR.”
We all know there are White House / Pentagon fabulists who are “experts” in disinformation / propaganda / fabrication, and who create wars / revolutions / crises and then go about offering THE solution: “GO TO WAR.” It works every time. At the “General” level in this devilish pyramid of power we find a Scarlet Pimpernel (or in the plural). So, I ask, WHY should a Christian “join up” to fight in a war/wars that is/are planned and executed by these deranged souls who DON’T EVEN CARE A LITTLE about “God and Country?” They are in it for their own glory and money, merely using any and all who are STUPID enough to be used.
2 Cor. 10:3
PAUL MAKES it plain and simple that although we live as humans in the flesh, in a carnal world, we, as Christians DO NOT live under the impulse of the perverted, sinful nature of the unsaved man. With the word “war,” Paul begins to use the figure of a military campaign. As so frequently in the New Testament, life is regarded as a battlefield; war is being waged between God and Satan, between the cause of Christ and the faces of evil (see Paul’s explanation in Eph. cpt. 6).
All this “carnal warfare” is being perpetrated by these sickos I refer to. While we are indeed surrounded by evil here in good ol “Christian” America, taking lives is a serious matter. WE CAN USE “BINDING AND LOOSENING.” God spoke to me just last night that America is a “nation in denial!” (Dec. 1, 2016). He told me that we need to pray for the political/religious leaders to deny denial…to bind the (demonic) spirit of denial over these leaders so that they will SEE things the way they really are...reality check!!
PREZ ELECT D. TRUMP must deal with these moles. If not, America will continue to slide downwards. He MUST DENY them rule—DENY them of their BARBAROUS RULE! These New World Order (engineer) moles must be crushed once and for all! These elite groups of conspirators (behind-the-scenes)/these nests of “Diaboligarchy” sickos prey upon the uninformed citizens of this nation…if not dealt with:
political/religious chaos will continue,
economic/monetary chaos will continue,
“pink perversion” and “radical Islam” will continue as a PLAGUE eating away at what is left of a democracy/national sovereignty,
—till ALL is gone…then replacing them with a totalitarian world government.
Their method (of madness) is to create wars and disasters, to engender FEAR in the population, and to propose a solution—a New World Order. The network of these psychopaths includes the Counsel on Foreign Relations / Trilateral Commission / Bilderberg Group (the ones we’re used to hearing about) and many other prominent organizations etc. All these groups work together in their efforts to decompose civil and religious liberties and to fortify THEIR PLAN. Their PLAN is DAMNING and DECEPTIVE, peppered with disinformation and propaganda.
Albert Einstein once said, “Those who have the privilege to know also have a duty to act.” Trump knows about all this. Will he ACT upon it as president? Many of us Christians know about all this, will we act in prayer and exposure? The “truth” is not enough, we must act upon it.
DARK AND GETTING DARKER! But we’re the children of the Light! Jesus said that, “Ye are the salt of the earth” (Mt. 5:13). Salt fights corruption as well as seasons food. He went on to say that “Ye are the light of the world” (v. 14), but today’s Church has become as dark as the world—because it has married the world; hence, the world is DARK. He told His followers to, “Let your light so shine before men.” Even if we were to let our light shine (as some of us try to do), the world will not always embrace it. Jesus also said in John 3:19, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” Of course some men’s / women’s deeds are much darker than others (like the pedophiles within this group of peoples I write about—they go farther in their child-molesting than the average pedophile. They actually rape children and then murder them, drinking their blood!! Wait and see if this truth does not come out in the near future. Satanic!). God is going to expose their gross sinfulness with His LIGHT!
AMERICA WILL deny this. They are so used to “denial” that this (exposure of the pedophile rings) will not readily be accepted. Talk about being BRAINWASHED! Talk about gullibility, naiveté, lack of perceptiveness, obliviousness…most have a resistance to admitting such atrocities. Child rape and murder is just too painful to acknowledge. “This kind of stuff only goes on in 3rd world countries, not in good, moral nation like America.” Gullible and credulous indeed.
Apathy and Complacency
THESE TWINS make up the majority of Americans. Most Americans (I believe) prefer to believe their leaders—Church and state, are just as honest, even when the evidence to the contrary stares them in the face. They don’t want to believe otherwise, if so, they might be challenged to say, or do something. To do this puts one or both on the defensive and offensive—they must defend themselves against those whom they have exposed; they must press onward in their exposures in the face of danger (many have died exposing these evil leaders).
Much of the propaganda used by these scumbags is NOT designed to fool the critical thinker, but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all. After all, propaganda is used to conceptualize information. If information is false, it, sooner or later, will become truth. We can educate people in lies or truth, depending on who is doing the speaking/reporting. And we all know that the WHOLE lot of the media is owned and controlled by these sickos…eat lies, digest lies, absorb lies=truth, at least this is their goal. Hence, the “truth” revealed (which is really lies) and the resultant awakening will lead to the kind of desired changes that are so necessary to create a New World Order of the future.
So, Fight! 2 Cor. 10:4, 5
WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE. Our warfare is against spiritual forces of wickedness (Eph. 6-12) Therefore, carnal weapons such as human ingenuity, talent, wealth, organizing ability, eloquence, propaganda, charisma, and personality are in themselves inadequate to pull down the strongholds of Satan. The only weapons adequate to destroy the fortresses of Satan, unrighteousness, and false teaching are THOSE WHICH GOD GIVES.
(1) These weapons are powerful because they are spiritual and come from God.
ELSEWHERE PAUL LISTS SOME OF THESE WEAPONS (EPH. 6:11-19; 1 THES. 5:8):
~ commitment to truth,
~ a life of righteousness,
~ proclamation of the Gospel,
~ hope of salvation,
~ the Word of God,
~ persevering prayer
By using these weapons against the enemy, the army of God will come forth victorious. That is, the presence and kingdom of God will be powerfully manifested in order to save sinners, cast out demons, sanctify believers, baptize them in the Holy Spirit, and heal the sick.
(2) The army of God today is often tempted to meet the challenge of the world by carnal means and by the world’s weapons, i.e., by humanistic wisdom, philosophy, psychology, exciting attractions, Church performances focused on entertainment etc. These all too often serve as a substitute for the basic N.T. practices of intense prayer, serious meditation on the Word of God, and the fervent proclamation of the Gospel. But such weapons will not bring about a Holy Ghost revival, for they cannot possibly destroy the stronghold of sin, deliver us from the power of Satan, or overthrow the evil passions that are RUNNING RAMPANT in the world today. If we use the world’s weapons, we will only secularize the Church and separate it from the weapons of faith, righteousness, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Tragically, the Church itself will then be overshadowed by the power of darkness and its families be cast down and taken captive by the forces of the world.
Bringing Into Captivity Every Thought
CHRISTIAN WARFARE involves bringing all our thoughts into alignment with the will of Christ; failure to do so will lead to immorality and spiritual death (Rom. 6:16, 23; 8:13). Use the following four steps to bring your thought life under the Lordship of Christ.
(1) Be aware that God knows every thought and that nothing is hidden from Him (Ps. 94:11; 139:2, 4, 23-24). We will have to account to God for our thoughts as well as for our words and deeds (2 Cor. 5:10; Eccl. 12:14; Mat. 12:35-37; Rom. 14:12).
(2) Be aware that the mind is a battleground. Some thoughts originate with us, while others come directly from the enemy. To bring every thought into captivity to Christ requires warfare against both our sinful nature and Satanic forces (Eph. 6:12-13; cf. Matt. 4:3-11). Regarding the latter, steadfastly resist and reject evil and unwholesome thoughts in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Phil. 4:7). Remember that we as believers overcome our adversary by the blood of the Lamb, by the word of our testimony, and by persistently saying “No!” to the devil, temptation, and sin (Tit. 2:11-12; Jas. 4:7; Rev. 12:11; cf. Mat. 4:3-11).
(3) Be resolute in focusing your mind on Christ and heavenly things rather than on earthly things (Phil. 3:19; Col. 3:2), for the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace (Rom. 8:6-7). Fill your mind with God’s Word (Ps. 1:1-3; 19:7-14; 119) and with those things which are noble, excellent, and praiseworthy (Phil. 4:8).
(4) At all times be careful what your eyes see and your ears hear. Resolutely refuse:
(a) to let your eyes be an instrument for lust (Job 31:1; 1 John 2:16), or
(b) to set any worthless or evil thing before your eyes, whether in books, magazines, pictures, television programs, or in real life (Ps. 101:3; Isa. 33:14-15; Rom. 13:14).
In This Warfare
LIES, PROPAGANDA, AND DECEIT have been around for centuries. We find both the Old Testament and the New Testament writing about the ploys/tricks of the enemy. These tactics are used so often today that no one notices. Politicians (and too many ministers) are GUILTY. We don’t have to worry about those “dirty commies,” but we have to wonder about how these modern “snake oil” salesmen get away with such antics.
Edward Bernay, a well known, well respected propagandist wrote in one of his books (1928) that, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.” He continues, “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an Invisible Government which is the true power of our (USA) country.” Bernay’s spin on propaganda was the best of his day. Many in the world of “shadow government” use his techniques even today...so much so that I would dare call it an addiction.
Have any of you even thought of who actually did 9/11 and all that followed? I need not upset you with the truth. You would rather wring your hands in DESPAIR over the continuation of expensive wars, and occupations, and the fear-mongering of the future. Someone(s) is behind this stuff. The “War on Terror” is a joke; America/Israel etc. are the main players…and are in reality THE TERRORISTS! It was them who created ISIS. Take a deep breath. See the invisible hand of EXTREME war-mongering at work—at your expense. Trump will certainly have a MESS to deal with when he takes office.
