Taking the battle to the enemy’s gate has to do with evangelizing, receiving Jesus, and then putting on the whole armor of God. Battles make war. A battle is an occurrence of combat in warfare between opposing military units of any number or size. Spiritual warfare is the religious concept of combating the work of other supernatural power.

It is rooted in the biblical notion of demonic beings, sometimes known as wicked spirits, who are thought to meddle in various aspects of human affairs.

Jesus teaches about bad thoughts that originate in the mind or heart. Spiritual battles also include the fight against the god of this world.-the fights between modernity and Christianity, the fight between Westernization and Christianity. And winning this battle means victory over sin, and the final victory shall be after the Prince of peace shall come.

Taking the Battle to the Enemy’s Gate Bible verse

The primary objective of Satan is to hinder non-Christians from acknowledging the veracity of Jesus Christ. And this can be done through outreaches: taking the light into the dark places (evangelism). This is a way of decolonising satan of his agents. One soul means a lot to the Kingdom.

Ezekiel 30:20 KJV- Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.

The Bible says that by faith you can do anything. The key is to believe. Now this is where I think we should all start. Believe that God is not the only one capable of doing things for us, but also with resources like miracles, deliverance, protection, etc… All you have to do is ask Him and expect. If we are willing to accept His word and use it as a guide, then He will do what He said He would do. God helps those who help themselves.

Isaiah 51:9 KJV– Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?

How do we evangelize?

  • through preaching the Word
  • through acts of love
  • participating in governance

Scriptures to Battle The Enemy

Ephesians 6: 10-13 KJV-Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Isaiah 54: 17 KJV- No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Even though God won the battle on the cross, the struggle continues. It has gotten worse in a lot of ways. when some of the earliest Christians experienced suffering as a result of their beliefs.

So be subject to God. Stand firm against him, and he will flee from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery]. This was James’s instruction in the Bible on how to battle the enemy.

Jeremiah 51:9 KJV- We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies

II Chronicles 20:16-17 KJV-Tomorrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

Ezekiel 30:21-26 – 

And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Exodus 14: 13-14 KJV- And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

You need to be aware that God has an enemy who is determined to use any and all available ways to render you impotent. Now, if you’re God’s child, God’s enemy automatically becomes your enemy. However, you must keep in mind that it is not your battle.

 

Psalms for God to Fight Your Battles

Old Testament book called Psalms, which contains sacred hymns or lyrics designed to be sung. The attitude and expression of religion in the psalms themselves range from joyful celebration to somber hymn and vehement protest. In 1 Chronicle 16:7–36, David established the practice of using Psalms for temple reverence. These are a few examples of Psalms David used for God to fight battles- in bellum and ad bellum.

Psalm 35:1-8 KJV -Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

Psalm 68-1 – Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them also that hate him flee before him.

Psalm 46: 1-3 KJV-
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Psalm 18: 39-40 KJV-

For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

The primary objective of Satan is to hinder non-Christians from acknowledging  Jesus Christ. His second objective is to make a Christian prayerless.

Ephesians 6:18 KJV- praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints

When you become prayerless, you’re lukewarm and susceptible to the darts of the devil. Winning the battle through prayer is by praying unceasingly. The adversary tries to sever your relationship with your heavenly Father as much as possible remember the story of the prodigal son. he was still a son whilst he was away. But, he could not access his father from whence he was. He was losing it. the only way he could win was to restore fellowship with his father.

scriptures to use to fight the enemy,

How do we fight the enemy?

  • first by accepting Jesus as our lord and personal savior.
  • second, through the transformation of the mind
  • thirdly through prayers by faith.
  • And fourthly by thanksgiving.

2 Chronicles 20:22 KJV- And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

 

What is the Spiritual Meaning of Gates?

Just as we have physical gates, there are also spiritual gates that serve the same purposes in another realm. It means stronghold of principalities and powers, doorway of the devil. In Christianity, to be effective in the spiritual realms, we must understand the when, how, and when to pray. The Bible says the Sons of Issachar hath understanding of the times and seasons and knew what Isreal hath to do.

the moment they knew what to do they were in command. The power is in the practice of the understanding we have through the revelation of the Word for the perfecting of the Saints. The whens of prayer determine how effective such prayer can be. Jesus spoke of ‘when thou prayest’, ‘when thou fastesth’. When means there is timing. There is how to enter.

John 5:9 KJV- Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

This man stayed by the pool for 38 good years. But, why? It was not because the presence was not there nor that the waters were not being stayed. He had one problem; he didn’t know the timing. those who knew the time planned ahead and maximised the situation. He was in crisis for thirty-eight good years because he could not understand how to access the gates.

There are many people that lose out on their destiny because they were not aware of spiritual gates.  In the place of spiritual gates, we must understand the place of divine intervention. We must live in the presence to access spiritual gates.

What Does the Bible say about the Battle is the Lord’s?

Comparing spiritual conflict to physical conflict is a good approach to explain it.

II Chronicles  20:16 KJV-  To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

2 Chronicles 20:22 KJV- And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

God is a strategist. he is the battle axe and the weapon of war. he knows when to strike and has the wherewithal to execute every war, seen and unseen. it means that you should hand over every battle you are currently facing to God. Have faith that it will soon be over. He has promised us that he is with us a mighty-terrible One. Faith is the key to success when utilizing prayer as a weapon in spiritual combat. For without faith it is quite impossible to please God.

What Does The Bible Say About Overcoming Battles?

When we involve God in our situation, circumstances, and battles of life, He knows the logistics and he is the controller of every system, season, and times. Hence, recovery and overcoming are assured.

To win the battles of our minds, the Bible tells us to have our minds ponder on these:

Philipians 4: 8 KJV-Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Via God’s judgment and the cross, Satan has been bound; he is now being bound through the gospel message; and he will be bound forever.

Your sense of your dependence on God may be increased via fasting.  Jesus too showed us the example by fasting. According to what the Bible says, fasting can help us hear from God more clearly as we put God’s demands before our own.

Our adversary is a defeated opponent. He is or battle axe and weapon of war.

What Does Jesus say About Going to War?

Christianity actually is the real religion of peace. Any other religion that would ask its followers to take up arms and physically kill a fellow human has nothing to do with peace. you can think about it.

The devil cometh not but to steal, kill, and destroy but I come that you may have life more abundantly. He is the prince of peace, the life-giver. he brings peace and he is a peacemaker. war is destructive but Jesus is always talking about peace with one another, loving one another as oneself. this is the character of peace because He is a peace ambassador. he is for peace and not for war. We can imbibe his teachings fully there should be no need for war. refrain from violence for whoever goes by the sword shall die by the sword.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV- For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds

Jesus said when He shall be taken up that the Holy Spirit shall come upon us. Now, in this dispensation, the Spirit has come. You are not merely looking for strength from sources outside of yourself or from the resources God provides, such as the Bible and prayer. God is at work in you through the indwelling Holy spirit providing you with all the resources you require to live the life He has planned for you as His child.

Meditate on the passages above in your lone time with God, and watch things turning around. Don’t give up, stand still and see God’s salvation.
