How should we view the attacks from the enemy?

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 18:22

Is the battle we are involved in, always something evil?

Let us first note that only evil comes from the kingdom of the devil. In this sense, the attacks we suffer are evil. But, it is also true that God can use, or rather reverse, the enemy’s vicious attacks to do something that will help us.

Does sickness, depression, poverty or things like that come from God?

No. It is very important to realize. that God is good, and from Him comes only that which is good.

How can we know that God never sends sickness upon us?

Jesus showed us what the Father is like. Jesus said: ”He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:9).

Now, let’s look at what Jesus was like, and what He did.

Acts 10:38
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

Jesus healed them ALL. Among all these people we can be sure that there were those who needed to come closer to God. Yet Jesus healed everyone. That way Jesus showed us that it was the Father’s will that no one should be sick.

But what about the fact that God can use the attacks of the enemy?

He uses them, but He never sends them.

Why does God allow attacks to come against us?

God allows attacks to come against us because He wants to make us strong.

Let’s see how Jesus began His ministry. After He was baptized by John the Baptist, He was filled with the Holy Spirit and immediately led into 40 days of battle, with the devil, in the wilderness.

Luke 4:1-2
Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted for forty days by the devil …

Jesus was attacked, but He conquered the attacks, and now let’s see how Jesus left the wilderness:

Luke 4:14
Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee …

Notice the difference. Jesus was led into the wilderness ”filled with the Holy Spirit”, but He left the wilderness “in the power” of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus received power by conquering the attacks, and the same principle goes for us too.

So, how should we view the spiritual battle?

We need to realize that the attacks come from the evil spiritual world, and that they are meant for evil. But, we also need to realize that we become spiritually strong by facing the attacks and conquering them, with the help of God.
