Going On the Offensive Against Your Enemies

The second part of this verse then gives you secret #2 to true spiritual warfare in the Lord – and that secret is to “resist the devil.”

Notice the verse says to first resist the devil, and then he will flee. Resist means you fight, you engage, you take your enemy head on. You do not sit passively by while he continues to attack and beat you down.

If there is one major secret I feel the Lord has given to me in the area of spiritual warfare – it has to be the strategy of going on the offensive against whatever enemy is coming against you – just like David did with Goliath.

If you will notice when reading the stories in our Testimonies Section – we had each person go on the offensive in their battle prayers to the Lord and take their enemy head on operating under God’s power and anointing to be able to do so.

It was only when that person took the initiative and went on the offensive against their enemy did God move in with His healing and deliverance power to set them completely free.

Some of these people had been bound up for quite some time in their predicaments before they were given this battle advice to go on the offensive. Once they went on the offensive against their enemy, it completely turned the tide for them, and many of these people were set completely free within a day or two! This is how powerful this type of battle strategy can be.

The  verse in part 1,  “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7) should be committed to full memory by all Christians, as it is the number one foundational verse in which all true spiritual warfare in the Lord is based on.

    The title says, “Going On the Offensive Against Your Enemies” but the only strategy given on this page is to resist the devil and he will flee. I would have liked to see more strategies given in regards to being on the offense. To me a great example of being on the offense would be David. To me, resisting the enemy is not what worked against defeating Goliath. And in this case, God did not go before him and fight his battle for him, like in the case of Jehoshaphat. (2 Chronicles 20) David fought Goliath with the strength God gave him through preparing him in past battles when protecting his sheep.
    I’d love to learn more about being on the offense against the enemy.

    It says in your article:
    The above verse should be committed to full memory by all Christians, as it is the number one foundational verse in which all true spiritual warfare in the Lord is based on.

    But I don’t see a verse on this page. Did you mean to talk about James 4:7 Resist the Devil and he will flee from you. ?

      Hi Fran, you are correct, when Mike first wrote the article, it was all on one page which is why it is referenced as the above verse, I have edited that now and put the actual verse in that paragraph. Thanks for pointing that out and anytime you see anything else like this, please let me know 🙂

    Hi David, the verses are actually spread out among the articles but you gave me an idea, which is to put all the verses on one page and link from the article. I will also email you a document I will be using to do this so you will have it at your fingertips 🙂
