For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. (2 Cor 10:4 – emphasis added)
. . . that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:14) As we study the Bible, the Lord helps us to become mature and to equip us for every good work.
Weak men we may be; but it is not as such that we fight our battles. (2 Cor 10:3 NEB) We don’t have the mindset of being weak; but rather, we fight because we have a supernaturally mighty friend in Jesus, our Savior.
What are our weapons? Our weapons are the Word of God; prayer; preaching the Gospel and teaching the Word of God to all who are hungry.
The Holy Spirit is our Helper, and He accesses the power of God on our behalf. (Zech 4:6)
Paul did not use violence; psychological maneuvering; a crusade of lies against his enemies; political power; money; or denominational loyalty as weapons. Paul used the spiritual weapons that were at his disposal, revealed to Him by God.
The same weapons that were available to the apostle Paul are available to each one of us today. Pick up the sword of the Spirit (the Word of God) and study to show yourself approved as one who “rightly divides the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:15)
