In this article, I will give you 100 of the best battle verses from the Bible. I simply cannot stress enough the power that is on these particular verses. Here’s a direct link to all the verses on 1 page.
For those of you who have read the entire Old Testament, one of the things that really stands out is how God the Father would not hesitate go into battle for His chosen people, the Jews, when they were walking in good stead with Him.
God the Father was absolutely ferocious in His defense of the Jewish people when the situation would warrant Him coming to their aid.
The Bible tells us that God the Father does not change. And if God is still the same today as He was in the past, then this means that He will also come to the aid of all New Testament Christians who are walking in good stead with Him.
The best analogy I can give you on this is the family analogy. For those of you who are married and have children, just imagine that you just found out that someone was going to try and abduct and kill one of your children. What do you think your natural response to such a horrible threat would be?
You would have a strong righteous wrath rise up on you, and you would not hesitate to go into battle to either kill this abductor in self-defense if you had to, or arrange to make sure he got caught by the police and properly prosecuted.
I have had mother after mother tell me that they would not hesitate to kill someone like this if they thought their child was going to be killed or seriously injured by such an evil individual.
It is the exact same way with God the Father. God is our real Father, and as such, can you imagine what some of His emotional responses may be when He sees one of His own children come under any type of human or demonic attack?
God the Father is a God of maximum intensity. This means that all of His emotions within His personality are going to be of a maximum intense nature.
So if God would have a very strong righteous wrath rise up on Him when seeing any of His own children come under any kind of an evil attack – can you just imagine what the intensity of that righteous wrath would be like?
This is why some of the battles God fought for the Jewish people back in the Old Testament were so bloody and so intense. Some of these battles were the full wrath and anger of God coming into full manifestation to defeat some of Israel’s enemies.
Just as God was so ferocious in His defense of the Jewish people back in the Old Testament – God can be just as intense and just as ferocious in His defense of you or any of your loved ones should the need ever arise where you would need His protection.
This is why the battle verses I will list in this article are so important for each and every Christian to have full knowledge of.
However, in order to be able to get God’s maximum protection on you, there are several things you must do before God will go this far with you. As I have said in my article on “How to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Deliverance and Protection,” many of God’s children are getting beat to a pulp in the playing field of life.
The main reason for this is that many Christians are lacking real working knowledge in the area of spiritual warfare.
God says in His Word that His people will perish for having lack of knowledge. And not having the right kind of knowledge in spiritual warfare is what is getting so many of His people beat up in this life.
Demons, and humans who have chosen to live this life on the dark side, are constantly on the prowl seeking who they are going to try and devour next.
All you have to do is watch the daily news and it is one horror story after another. Robberies, abductions, murders, and thefts are occurring every minute of every day in our country and all across the world. And some of those who are coming under these types of evil attacks are Christians.
For those of you who really want to learn how to get God to protect you from some of these types of vicious and evil attacks – I would strongly recommend that you read and study the article I did on how to Plead the Blood of Jesus – and then go into our Testimonies section and study some of the testimonies we have written up showing you how to go into battle against some real adverse situations.
The battle advice that we had given to each person in these testimonies brought complete and total victory against the adverse situations they were all facing.
Once you have the knowledge on how to get God to move on your behalf in a battle situation – defeating whatever enemy has come your way can then become quite easy, since God is all-powerful and there is nothing that He cannot do – which would include handling any type of storm cloud that may have just come your way.
I would also highly recommend that you write or type out all of these battle verses on index cards in the order that I will give them to you. If you are willing to take this kind of extra step with the Lord, then you will have right at your fingertips all of the main battle verses of the Bible.
As you will see when reviewing some of our testimonies, you will need to incorporate some of these battle verses into your own personal battle prayers when engaging with whatever enemy may have come your way.
A good example of this is the testimony titled, “Battle Prayer Against Terminal Hodgkin’s Disease.” In this testimony, the battle prayer that I had given to this woman came in a little bit longer than some of the other ones. In this battle prayer are quite a few healing and battle verses that were put into the battle prayer itself so she could go on the offensive against the terminal cancer that had just struck her brother.
This is why I cannot stress enough how powerful these battle verses really are. If you are willing to put these battle verses into an index card system – you will then have right at your fingertips “God-torpedoes” to shoot at whatever enemy may come your way – whether it be human, demonic, or any kind of illness or disease.
As you will see in some of the battle verses I will list below – there are several verses that talk about God the Father being a “Man of War,” and that He can be stirred up to go into battle for you. And the way that you stir up God the Father to go into battle for you is to form out the appropriate battle prayers that will fit the specific battle situation you may be facing.
The other angle on all of this is that more Christians need to learn how to go on the offensive against whatever enemy has come their way. Too many Christians are way too passive when they are hit by any type of serious storm cloud.
God the Father is just waiting for you to come directly to Him to take this storm cloud head on operating under His full power and authority to be able to do so. But if you are not willing to go on the offensive against these bad storm clouds like David did with Goliath, then neither will God.
And this is why so many Christians are getting defeated when these types of bad storm clouds do come against them – all due to passive inaction on their part.
Now I will take you into some of the most powerful verses in all of the Bible showing you how God can go into battle for you to defeat whatever enemy may come your way – no matter how big, mean, or nasty you think this enemy may be!
Study these verses very, very carefully, as they are all showing you the “war side” to God the Father’s personality and how ferociously He can go into battle for you to defeat any enemy that may try and come against you in this life. These are whopper power verses, and I mean whopper power verses!
Stay Humble in Your Battle Walk With the Lord
I will end this article with two very good verses showing us that even though God can come to our aid in very powerful and miraculous ways to defeat our enemies – He still wants us to remain humble with all of this, along with making sure that we treat all of our enemies with love, respect, and kindness.
- “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; lest the Lord see it, and it displeases Him, and He turn away His wrath from him.” (Proverbs 24:17)
- “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; for so you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the Lord will reward you.” (Proverbs 25:21)
Notice the first verse is telling us not to rejoice and be happy when God does have to move into battle to defeat our enemies. The reason for this is because your enemy has now been placed under judgment with God, and God is now deeming that some kind of appropriate action has to be taken.
This is actually a very sad state of affairs when God is forced to have to render some type of judgment on someone.
This is why God does not want us rejoicing when He does have to go this far with someone. The best analogy to understand this principle is with our criminal justice system.
Even though everyone is glad and relieved when a murderer is caught and sent to prison for the rest of his life – the sad part about all of this is the fact that the murderer has chosen with his own free will to live his life on the dark side and that he will go straight to hell when he dies and crosses over, unless he gets saved and gets all of his sins forgiven with Jesus before he dies.
The Bible tells us that murderers will not be inheriting the Kingdom of God unless they get saved and washed clean under the Blood of Jesus. If they do not, then it is very sad thing knowing what awaits all of them on the other side once they die and cross over. I think this is why God wants all of us to treat even our worst enemies with love, respect, and kindness.
All of the above Scripture verses will give you more than enough live ammunition should you ever need them to face any enemy or storm cloud head on.
You can also use many of these battle verses in conjunction with the healing verses of the Bible when you are needing a healing on something.
All sickness and disease is also our enemy, and as such, you can ask God to move into battle for you against any sickness or disease that is attempting to come against you as we have shown you how to do in the Testimonies Section of our website.
Just pick out the appropriate battle and/or healing verses for whatever enemy you are attempting to engage with – then form out your own personal battle prayer with God the Father – and then go on the offensive against that enemy if you have a solid green light from the Lord to take that enemy head on.
Our God is a powerful Man of War – and He can be stirred up to go into battle for either you or any of your close loved ones if your enemy will not retreat or back down.
