STEPS OF A WAR.
Spiritual warfare is now a universal language, all believers have heard at least once this term is not fad evangelism and missions, absolutely is a battle we fought constantly against Satan.
* We are soldiers enlisted for this great spiritual battle, a soldier is a fighter, a champion, so a winner (2 Tim 2:3) "Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ Jesus." A soldier is part of a body that can be called garrison, detachment, battalion or regiment.
In (Jl 2.2be 5b) "a people great and powerful, never was, nor will be after him for years of many generations: ... as a strong people set in battle array." Here we find two features striking the army of God. Because greater is he that is in us (1 Jn 4.4) "Little children, you are from God and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world." Never say I'm just as the Lord Jesus states categorically: (Matt. 28:20) "... and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of time. Never say: I can not, for it is written (Phil. 4:13) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Let's look at objectively, the various positions to be occupied in the army of God:
1 - INFANTRY.
Are those who are on the front line, basically in melee with the enemy: unseating powers, casting out demons, personally invading enemy territory, treading this territory and taking possession in the name of the great general - Shabaot Jehovah (Lord of Hosts) . Example: David put Uriah in the infantry. As well as missionaries.
2 - ARTILLERY.
It consists of the group that uses ranged weapons, such as: Intercession, spiritual warfare on a large scale, supernatural faith and words of authority. Example: Elisha (2 Kings 6:18) "When they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people with blindness, I pray thee. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. "Jesus (Mt 8.8b)" ... but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. "The primary purpose of artillery is to weaken the enemy forces, reaching targets selected as principalities, powers, rulers of this dark world. (2 Corinthians 10.4,5; Eph 6:12) "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds," bombarding the enemy strongholds, the job is made easier for infants who are at the forefront which, plunder the enemy, taking her precious lives and transporting them to the kingdom of light. (Isaiah 49.25) "... Certainly the captives will be taken from the mighty, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save."
3 - MOTOR REGIMENT.
Groups are using the big war equipment to reach the masses. Example: The radio, television, large seminars, your main goal is to launch at once tonnes of seed of God's word. (Is 40.9) "Thou bringest good tidings to Zion, go up on a high mountain. Thou bringest good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up thy voice with strength, lift it up, fear not, and say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God. "
4 - ENGINEERING.
It is the group with a special ability to engineer, architect, plan ways in which increased, facilitating and expanding the firepower of the army of God. Are the special techniques and tactics of the Holy Spirit (The Great Teacher), and through the Holy Spirit that we receive every strategy of war for this fight, He makes us know the territory of the enemy, he is the great revealer of this battle, we have to determine our ears to hear it.
5 - COMMUNICATIONS.
The element of this group is to promote the necessary communications support to those who rely or depend on it. There are both active communications that give guidelines attack, as passive, aimed at preserving the imminent danger. In both cases, God often uses his prophets, according to (3.7 Am) "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." And no less frequently his word (Heb. 1:1) "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners to the fathers by the prophets," example: the strategy through Jahaziel (2 Chronicles 20.14-17); notice through Elisha (2 Kings 6:6).
Within a battle, we must be attentive to the voice of God through the prophets, but also witness these spirits, everything always in the direction of God.
6 - SUPPLY.
Aims to promote regular supply and extraordinary, both the basic need for survival and welfare of the soldier, as, equipment and ammunition used by him. Example: David, before he became king, watched their brothers in battle with groceries (1 Sm 17.15,17,18). But God wanted David was in the middle of the battle as a soldier.
Let us pray to God that he will bring us disciples that you can help us during the battle taking care of us
This fight against darkness involves all believers, whatever your gift or vocation. Do evangelism is to make war against the darkness of spiritual blindness is taking the captives of Satan. (2 Corinthians 4.)
