Warfare, Warriors & Weapons 2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-5; EPHESIANS 6:10-18
Paul emphasises the supernatural nature of the warfare in which we find ourselves as Christians.
He says that -
• THE WARFARE is supernatural
• THE WARRIORS are supernatural
• THE WEAPONS are supernatural
Supernatural Warfare At Three Levels: Body, Soul & Spirit
This is not a physical war between flesh and blood. It is a spiritual - ie supernatural - battle between opposing supernatural forces in the heavenly realms REVELATION 12:7.
It pervades all three levels of human life, involving the physical, the soulish and the spiritual. It includes global, territorial and individual levels.
The Warfare Is Not A War between Equals
It needs to be emphasised that it is not a war between equals. Satan is a created being, like the other angels, and is no match for God! He is also a defeated foe, although his final demise is yet to come.
