The enemy’s weapons: Ignorance – part 2

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 19:00

Hos. 4:6
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge …

In the previous part we said that ignorance is one of the enemy’s most effective weapons, and that the enemy uses ignorance in order to prevent people’s salvation. Now we will have a look at another area where the enemy uses our ignorance.

Ignorance of spiritual warfare prevents the kingdom of God from being extended

Let’s look at three important facts we need to know:

First, Jesus connected the extending of the Kingdom of God, with the casting out of evil spirits.

Matt. 12:28
But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Second, Jesus has given us authority over all the power of the enemy.

Luke 10:19
I have given you authority … to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

Third, Jesus has given us the same mission as he himself had, namely to destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3:8
… The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

John 20:21
Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”

Unfortunately, many believers are totally ignorant of the importance of spiritual warfare. Instead of seeing spiritual warfare as a wonderful opportunity to serve Jesus, many look at it as something excessive and dangerous. That ignorance prevents the Kingdom of God from being extended the way God has intended.
