If You Are a Christian You Are at War

Are you a born again Christian? Then you are at war, like it or not!

Once you become born again from heaven, that is, born again from the Holy Spirit, you are transferred from the kingdom of darkness, to the kingdom of light. For that reason alone, you have become an enemy of the devil. He does not like the truth and the fact, that because you are born again from the Holy Spirit now, you belong to God, and you do not belong to the god of this world, anymore. 

Before you were born again, or before you became a Christian, you belonged to the enemy of your soul, the devil, because the Bible says that he is the god of this world. Without God and his Holy Spirit in your heart, you belonged to the spirit of Antichrist, which is the spirit influencing and dwelling in the hearts of many people in this world, who are not Christians, and who do not have Jesus Christ dwelling in their hearts. 

When you were still in the kingdom of darkness, before you became born again, the devil could use you for his own purposes and wishes. But now, because you are a born again child of God, and you have the Holy Spirit dwelling in your heart, he can not touch you, as written in one of the Epistles of John, in the New Testament. Therefore, because Jesus Christ lives in your heart and is Lord of your life, you have automatically become an enemy of the devil, and you have overcome him, by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, shed on the cross for your sins, and by your testimony about Jesus, as written in the book of Revelation. 

Before you were born again, the devil had victory over you and your life, because you were living in his kingdom, the kingdom of darkness. After you have become born again, you have overcome the devil, and you have the power and authority to command him in the name of Jesus, to leave your life, or the lives of other people, because of what Jesus Christ did for you and me, by his death on the cross, and by his resurrection from the death. As it says in the book of Acts, Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of the devil, and he destroyed them completely, glory and thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for that! Amen!

But although the devil is defeated enemy, because Jesus Christ destroyed his works on earth by his death on the cross for our sins and his resurrections from the death, the devil still tries from time to time to fight Christians in various ways, because the Bible says that he is like roaring lion, going around the world, looking for someone to devour. And that was written for Christians. 

In the book of Revelation, chapter 12 and verse 17, it says that the dragon, which is the devil, went to wage war against Christians, those who keep God’s commands. From that verse alone, you can see that the enemy of our soul, is still trying to fight Christians, in one way or another. But the only way the enemy can defeat a Christian in a certain way, is when a Christian falls into temptation to do certain sin, not because a Christian wants to sin, but because of difficult or pressing situations, or because of giving in to the sinful nature living in the body of every Christian, just because, a Christian decides to give in to temptation.

But nevertheless, if a Christian, who has give to temptation and has sinned, if that Christian repents, and seeks God’s forgiveness and mercy, God will forgive that Christian, and will restore him, and most likely help that Christian and train him to try to fight that temptation in the future, so that the Christian will not fall into the same temptation again. But even then, there is no guarantee, that the Christian will not fall in the same temptation in the future again.

We as Christians, although we do not want to sin, we sometimes give in to temptation and sin. But we have the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for our sins, to cleanse us from our sins, when we repent before God. Glory and thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for that! May our God and Father help us not to fall into temptations and sin, in the name of Jesus Christ! Amen!
