The Battle of Words.
WHAT IS THE BATTLE OF WORDS ABOUT ?
2 KORINTHIANS 10:3-6 - For though we walk in the flesh, we do not fight according to the flesh. For the weapons we fight with are not fleshy but mighty in Yahuah for overthrowing strongholds, overthrowing reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Yahuah, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to Mashiak and being ready to evaluate all rebellion, when your obedience is accomplished. "WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE IS ACCOMPLISHED."
Paul tells us straight right here, we have to become "OBEDIENT" in order to achieve the required skills first, before we can enter the battle. What are the required skills from the Scriptures above so that we can be spiritually active ?
Yahusha said He will never leave us or forsake us, but if we don't stay within the boundaries He has set before us, we will be defeated. As usual Yahusha has made it so very simple for us to understand, the whole point of our success is in just doing one thing (this is where the obedience kicks in). To be able to overthrow all the strongholds, reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Yahuah which the enemy has placed within us, we just have to do one thing.
Behaving this one thing will give us command over our behaviour. There are many words against this command like "that is impossible, no one can do that all the time," but we know by our instruction that this is the enemy because it is the opposite to the command of instruction given to us by our Major General who overcame the enemy and won the battle against the flesh control. Here in verse 5 is the enemy's defeat, given to us by the Master speaking through our brother Paul. Don't ever forget this instruction:
"TAKING CAPTIVE EVERY THOUGHT TO MAKE IT OBEDIENT TO THE MASHIAK". (from the BYNV)
Brothers, this is the "Battle of Words" and behaving the right words will give you mastery over evil. Yahusha wants us to please him by having nothing to do with the affairs of this life (2 Tim 2:4), hence we pull away from all the teachings of men which corrupt the words of Mashiak. This of course is taking away the spots and wrinkles from our garment and defeats the lies of Ha Shatan, releasing us from the bondage and ignorance of living the life of the flesh, without ever having our spiritual eyes opened by meeting Yahusha. From our repentance, immersion and heart circumcision, we receive the gift of the Ruach ha 'Qodesh (the spirit of Yahusha). We are tested by Yahuah to see if we will take His discipline and if we succeed and bear the fruits of righteousness, we then enter the "Battle of Words."
The words of Turah are considered by Yahuah as "THE TRUTH," Yahuah considers anything or anyone who declares opposition to the truth, as a liar. The key is knowing what Turah says but if you do not have Yahusha's spirit you cannot understand the spirit of the Word (truth).
Ha Shatan does not want people to know Yahusha personally, because they will love Him. Yahusha is calling His bride from amongst the sinners and nothing can stop Him.
YES BROTHERS WE ARE IN THE BATTLE OF WORDS, YAHUSHA HAS GIVEN US THE WEAPON TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY BY TAKING EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE BEFORE WE BEHAVE IT. YOU CAN SEE HOW VERY IMPORTANT OUR BEHAVIOUR REALLY IS TO YAHUSHA.
BROTHERS ARE YOU PLEASING YAHUSHA WITH YOUR BEHAVIOUR ?
