A warrior, or a spartan in Halo-talk, needs a powerful arsenal to defeat the enemy.
You’re a spartan, Christian, in the spiritual realm, with a full arsenal of weapons at your fingertips. Are you using them?
“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2Corinthians 10:4
How many strongholds have you demolished lately?
Your only offensive weapon is your sword, you know — “…the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 How sharp is yours?
In other words, are you a noob or a pro?
My son and his friends play “Halo”. It’s a fighting, killing computer game.
Noobs (new players), invariably use the wrong weapons, and so are easily defeated. tsk, tsk.
Are you defeated? Have you been trying to defend your hill with only a pistol, like a noob?! (halo talk) I mean, John 3:16 will get you just so far in the real world.
You might need to up your arsenal, spiritually, by memorizing more verses. Why? Because the Word of God (our sword) is the truth. It says so in our cheat code manual (the Bible). ..”The sum of Your Word is truth…” in Psalm 119:160 and “…Your Word is truth.” in John 17:17b.
Our enemy hates the truth. REALLY! It’s like using a rocket launcher when you speak the truth to the devil.
So, listen to this “pro” — something noobs quickly learn to do in the game or die. Memorize LOTS of scripture, so you’re not “poned” by the enemy!
