The War We Are In

May 2, 2021

Ephesians 6:12 – Ultimately we are in a war – and if in a war, we can suffer loss

  • We have to learn Warfare Jesus Style
  • We are told to fight in spiritual heaven

Zechariah 1:18-19–  Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were four horns. And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these?” So he answered me, “These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”

  • looked like the people of God were about to prosper
  • Try to succeed in your purpose – Then enemy will attack
  • Attack strategy is to divide and scatter
  • But the primary mold of attack is people, 4 rep the world
  • The war begins rt here, btwn the ears, the mind
  • Secret made mistakes bef but alright w it

But Jesus is raising up a standard and that standard is you

  • Isaiah 59:19-So shall they fear The name of the Lordfrom the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
  • that standard is u, God in us, thru us
  • Zechariah 1:20-21– Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen.  And I said, “What are these coming to do?” So he said, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, so that no one could lift up his head; but  the craftsmen are coming to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the nations that lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it.”
  • What’s chged, It’s not that my circumstances change, my perspective changes – seeing things through God’s eyes that’s what happens in the morning to me
  • Build, Nehemiah build and fight, Ark on top of the mountain, Fortress
