Last Wednesday night as I sat in a pew in my own church, another church experienced something straight out of a horror film. If you live in America, you know what I am referencing. A young white man, whom I will not name, walked into a church that was predominately black and asked if he could speak with the pastor. He then proceeded to shoot and kill 9 people, including the pastor. Now, some are willing to make excuses for this young man stating mental illness, and instability or are diluted enough to believe that this entire scenario was not motivated by racism.
I usually don’t react to articles. I usually work through whatever God has on my heart or answer a question that one of my readers has sent to me, but today I am reacting to an article that in my mind could become dangerous if not corrected (which is the reason for my interaction with it). The article entitled, “8 Signs You Are Under Spiritual Attack” published on Charismamag.com. I am going to try to lay out for you how I am going to approach this: first I am going to identify what spiritual warfare is not; then I am going to identify what spiritual warfare does look like; and thirdly I am going to give some tips on how to do combat with the enemy.
It is amazing isn’t it? To see how easily distracted we become when in the midst of another activity. It is almost as if it is nearly impossible for a person to only do one task at a time now a days.
