“Spiritual Warfare” is a topic that is frequently mentioned in churches, but seldom seriously examined. It is one of those subjects that lead us into uncomfortable territory. Our aim is typically to find concrete answers in the scriptures in order to dispel confusion and map a safe and well-defined course for Christian living. We want desperately to know, not to wonder. Spiritual Warfare often leaves us with more questions as we search for those concrete answers.
Yet we must study and understand the spiritual war. The Bible tells us that we fight these battles every day. We are soldiers of the cross, and called to fight for a short “tour of duty” while here on earth. We must refocus our minds again to the battle at hand, and open our eyes to what is happening in our world, and the other world, the Spiritual World, which affects everything we see. In this way, our very perspective on life will change.
In this 13-week study, minister Kerry Williams explores the “War to Be Won,” and helps us learn how to better rely upon our God for the victory.
