Spiritual Warfare

Overview

Argentinean leader Ed Silvoso said, “The Church in the West today presents too easy a target for Satan. We do not believe we are at war. We do not know where the battleground is located., and, in spite of our weapons, they are neither loaded nor aimed at the right target. We are unaware of how vulnerable we are. We are better fitted for a parade than for an amphibious landing.”

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth,”…in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes” (II Corinthians 2:11).

As Henry Martyn wrote, 'The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.'
