Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual warfare, as it pertains to evangelism, is a war to win souls. Peter tells us in 2 Peter 3:9, God does not wish for anyone to perish, but He wants everyone to repent. Salvation and the gospel is for every person in the world. The Devil will use any means necessary to thwart the actions of evangelists. The Devil will use lies, pleasures, and worries of this world to take away from the message of the gospel. To fight this battle, Paul tells of the Armor of God in Ephesians 6. We have the Shield of Faith and the Sword of the Spirit (the Word of God). These are the two major weapons in this fight. We must remain in The Word and in constant prayer to withstand the wiles of the Devil. This with the knowledge that God is sovereign and in ultimate control, will give us courage to carry on as good Christian soldiers
