 SCRIPTURE TO HELP YOU FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
(with Song: ON THE BATTLEFIELD)

Does Satan know you?
Does Satan know you as a friend or a foe?
Does he know that he’ll have a fight on his hands if he tries to stand in your way?


ACTS 19: 15, 16

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

ON THE BATTLEFIELD FOR MY LORD

My Brothers and Sisters, 

We cannot try to come against Darkness empty-handed. We must be filled with the Holy Spirit, clothed in Holiness and Righteousness, and wearing the Armor of God. When we abide in Jesus, reflecting His image and character, Satan will know us. When we resist him, he will flee.

In I Timothy I:18-19, Paul cautions Timothy that some have rejected faith and good conscience and therefore have suffered shipwreck…disaster. Prophecies of edification have been spoken over Timothy to encourage and strengthen him to fight the good fight in warfare. 

The word prophesied over Timothy, let him know that God had a plan for his life. Knowing this, Timothy was empowered to fight the good fight in whatever charge or task that Paul and the church assigned him.

If the enemy doesn’t know you; if you have rejected faith and good conscience; if you are unaware of God’s plan for your life, or have rejected it because, like those of little or no faith, you do not believe you can fight the good fight, then, you, too, will suffer shipwreck.

Fighting the good fight and overcoming is a part of the Faith. There are no free rides for anyone. Everyone has a cross to bear. Yet, God will not send us into the storms and battles of life alone. We are fortified, edified and supported by the Body of Christ, the Holy Spirit and Jesus.

Without Jesus we cannot weather the storm; for He commands the earth and waves. Washed in His blood we are cleansed and able to resist sin and darkness. Filled with God’s Holy Spirit, we are guided and NEVER alone. As a part of the Body of Christ, we are led by the Mind of Christ and able to function in many capacities, fellowshipping and walking in the Light of God.


I Timothy I:18, 19

18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 

19 having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,

My Brothers and Sisters, 

Followers, Soldiers, and Spiritual Walkers,

IT IS TIME TO SHINE THE LIGHT! –and tell the rest of the story…

There is a saying going around that “When Satan knocks, send Jesus to answer the door.” 

Hmmm…Now, I know that Jesus lives because He lives in me. You know that Jesus lives because He lives in you. So who should be answering the door? WE SHOULD! GOD WANTS TO USE US! GOD WANTS TO STRENGTHEN US! Let Psalm 27 and I Timothy be your battle cry! 

WE ARE SPIRITUAL WARRIORS, EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT! SATAN knows us and who lives inside of us. What SHOULD we do when Satan knocks? 

  • When Satan knocks, use discernment–DON’T ANSWER.
  • If He catches you off guard and gets his foot in the door, tell him he’s just in time for praise and worship of God; followed by spiritual warfare with the enemies of God, if he sticks around.
  • If Satan knocks at the door, realize his power is limited, but the God in you has ALL power.
  • When Satan knocks at the door, simply shine The LIGHT and let him see JESUS IN YOU. Soon, Satan will know who you are, too.

CHILDREN OF GOD, BE EMPOWERED! EMPOWER SOMEONE ELSE!


Tell them to wake up and let Jesus heal their BLINDED EYES. Tell the rest of the story that Satan doesn’t want others to know.

WE WALK IN THE LIGHT OF JESUS AND WE SHINE HIS LIGHT THAT OVERCOMES DARKNESS AND SATAN!

We are ONE with The Father, His Son and His Holy Spirit! Praise God! We are not helpless and with God on our side, we know we are not hopeless.

SCRIPTURE TO HELP YOU FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Psalm 27 (NKJV) A Psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;

Whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life;

Of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked came against me

To eat up my flesh,

My enemies and foes,

They stumbled and fell.

3 Though an army may encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear;

Though war may rise against me,

In this I will be confident.

4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,

That will I seek:

That I may dwell in the house of the Lord

All the days of my life,

To behold the beauty of the Lord,

And to inquire in His temple.

5 For in the time of trouble

He shall hide me in His pavilion;

In the secret place of His tabernacle

He shall hide me;

He shall set me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;

Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;

I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!

Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When You said, “Seek My face,”

My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”

9 Do not hide Your face from me;

Do not turn Your servant away in anger;

You have been my help;

Do not leave me nor forsake me,

O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,

Then the Lord will take care of me.

11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,

And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.

12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;

For false witnesses have risen against me,

And such as breathe out violence.

13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed

That I would see the goodness of the Lord

In the land of the living.

14 Wait on the Lord;

Be of good courage,

And He shall strengthen your heart;

Wait, I say, on the Lord!

1 Timothy 6:11, 12

11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Be Blessed Children of God, and FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!

your servant and soldier, united with the One

Mishael

ON THE BATTLEFIELD FOR MY LORD

Composed by  E.V. Banks and Sylvanna Bell
Sung and Arranged by Mishael T
(aka Michelle T. Kenner)

I was alone and idle,
I was a sinner too,
I heard a voice from heaven
Say there is work to do,
I took the Master’s hand,
And I joined the Christian band,
I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. [Refrain]

I left my friends and kindred
Bound for the Promised Land,
The grace of God upon me,
The Bible in my hand,
In distant lands I trod,
Crying sinner come to God,
I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. [Refrain]

Now when I met my Savior,
I met Him with a smile,
He healed my wounded Spirit,
And owned me as His child,
Around the throne of grace,
He appoints my soul a place,
I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. [Refrain]

Refrain:
I am on the battlefield for my Lord,
I’m on the battlefield for my Lord;
And I promised Him that I would serve Him till I die.
I am on the battlefield for my Lord.
