Spiritual Warfare Workshop

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons
of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down
of strongholds.”
2 Corinthians 10:3 – 4

Dear Friend,

You are invited to participate in our Spiritual Warfare Workshop on Saturday, 25 November.

As Christians we are engaged in an intense spiritual warfare. “Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

Under Attack
The devil is a shrewd enemy who has been tempting God’s people for centuries, placing snares and traps in our path to distract, deviate, discourage and defeat us. The devil knows our weaknesses, whether pride, greed or lust, dishonesty, immorality or bitterness. If we do not deal with sin and fortify our areas of weakness, we will continue to experience spiritual defeat.

​If we harbour and nurture our sin, we give the devil a foothold in our lives. Once we have surrendered ground to satan, it is vitally important that we learn how to reclaim it, how to put on the whole spiritual Armour of God and successfully resist the tempter. The weapons that God gives us are able to tear satan’s strongholds down and replace them with fortresses of Faith.

​As John Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress so eloquently portrays, Christians are involved in a daily battle against “All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.” 1 John 2:16

Not only has the enemy enslaved many to false religions, sinful habits and addictions, but he is also waging an all out war against the forces of Jesus Christ. Satan aims to undermine the Church and frustrate the Divinely appointed rescue mission entrusted to us.

Just as our Lord Jesus Christ is dedicated to the saving of lost men and women (Luke 19:10), so too satan is dedicated to damning and destroying everyone in this strife-torn world. Just as it is God’s plan for the Church to take the precious life-giving Bible, the Word of God, to all peoples everywhere, so too satan seeks to prevent this.

Just as Jesus has commanded Christians to be a light to this world, radiating God’s love to those trapped in the darkness of sin, so also the enemy continually seeks to dim, divert or destroy that influence.

Engage in the Battle
Christians need to actively resist the devil (James 4:7), in the Name of Jesus (Phil 2:9 – 11). Overcome satan by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of your testimony (Rev. 12:11). Counterattack with the Word of God and prayer (Ephesians 6:18 – 20). Draw near to God (James 4:8). “Cleanse your hands,” asking forgiveness for every violation of God’s standards. “Purify your hearts,” get back in the race and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus on whom your Faith depends from beginning to end (Hebrews 12:1 – 2). Reclaim all surrendered ground and enjoy full freedom in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Join us on Saturday 25 November from 09:00 – 16:00, in Rondebosch, Cape Town as Dr Peter Hammond addresses this important subject of Spiritual Warfare. Lunch will be included with a suggested donation of R30 for those who can afford it. Lecture notes and related literature will be available.
