Offense & Defense



Main Text: Ephesians 6: 10-20
Topics Discussed: Praying both Offensively and Defensively
                           Dec. 7 1941, and the attack on Pearl Harbor: they were not really prepared.
                           If God’s people are truly unprepared for the battle, they will continually live in defeat.
                           God gives us a simple strategy that anyone can use against the devil:
                           1.- Resist him steadfast in the faith; 1 Peter 5:6-11,
                           2.- We resist him using the name of Jesus; Philippians 2:9-10,
                           3.- We quote the scriptures back to the devil like Jesus did in the wilderness; Luke 4:1-13
Action Points: Learn to pray Offensively and Defensively.
                     Put on the “Whole Armor of God” every day if necessary.
                     Do not allow yourself to taken off guard, and/or surprised, like the navy at Pearl Harbor.
                     We must stand against the devil at all cost, and having done all to stand.
