Spiritual Warfare Support
Do you believe that God is real and the Bible is true? If so, then you must believe in the existence of good and evil and the conflict between them. Therefore, there are good spirits created by God, angels, and spirits created by God that chose to rebel against Him, demons. While we are not to pay much thought to angels and instead keep our minds on God. If He sees fit, God will send angels to us as He chooses (and we are to trust that His choices for us are always correct, which again is why we are not to try to call upon angels “for backup”). But as far as evil spirits go, we are to be mindful of them! Not fearful or obsessive, but rather to be aware that they exist, of their activities, how to spot their operation, and how to allow God to use us to oppose them. This weblog – along with the other websites for the Heal The Land Ministry of which http://healtheland.bravehost.com and http://healtheland.wordpress.com are the main ones – has the goal of providing people with assistance in battling evil spirits. The first component, of course, is salvation through Jesus Christ. Not only is battling demons in this life only to be cast into the lake of fire for eternity make for a wasted life, but you cannot effectively battle demons unless you are owned by God, because the truth is that if you are not owned by God then you are owned by the very same rebellion, sin, and evil that these demons are of and serve. So if you have not already, please submit to God by way of The Three Step Salvation Plan, and also take note of the other documents concerning salvation on this weblog. Next, you must have a strong foundation in the knowledge of and belief in God’s Word. No army would send a soldier onto the field of battle without his first being fully trained and properly equipped. God is no different. The Word of God is both your weapon – the sword of the spirit (Ephesians 6:17, Hebrews 4:12) – AND your instruction manual on how to use it! Thus, this weblog and various others (especially http://healthelanddevotionalarchives.wordpress.com, http://healthelandsermonarchives.wordpress.com, and http://healtheland.wordpress.com) are to help you understand and use the Word of God. Now there are plenty of great preachers and teachers out there, and I myself am not a member of the clergy. So, my goal is glorify God by approaching seldom – discussed subjects or difficult (and sometimes obscure) issues in a practical manner to supplement what Christians are receiving from their Bible studies, fellowships, pastors, churches, etc. I once abandoned the faith because of persistent questions which pastors – neither the one that I was following and the prominent TV preachers – stedfastly avoided, so I would hope that I am filling some of the spiritual voids in believers that once existed in me.
So, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I pray that this site is a blessing to you!
