Analogy Lord of the Rings
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world,
and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Eph. 6:12 "Take up the shield of faith"with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. This is my favorite scene in the movie "Lord of the Rings," because she is not one bit afraid of the Devil or his demons. She knows they can't hurt her. Satan is not afraid of us believers, but he is deathly afraid of the cross of Christ and the precious blood shed there.
"Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests…"Eph. 6: 16-18"The prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16
I am righteous ONLY because I have repented of my sin, and turned away from it. I sin every day, just like King David did. I don't want to, but I do. I can be made righteous and clean again by kneeling at the foot of the cross and confessing to Jesus.
"So we fix our eyes NOT on what is seen, but is UNSEEN. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is ETERNAL. " 2 Corinthians 4:18
Never forget you are free from the curse of sin and death. Don't let Satan deceive you. Cling to the Cross of Christ and the power you now have to overcome. I thought this was worth repeating ~ Kathi
