Recognizing the Real Enemy
Most books, teachers and ministers simply tell us what to do, what not to do and to “control our flesh”. But this only leads to frustration, failure and inconsistency. This is because they do not deal with the “actual doers” or the “true sources” of the thoughts, feelings, urges and actions that we are told to “control”. Let us accurately identify “our problem”, or rather, our real enemy. Scripture tells us that your adversary is the devil…not any person. We are told that we wrestle spiritual wickedness. We are also told that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. This makes sense, for we wrestle not a carnal adversary but a spiritual one. Yet, we do have a dilemma, for it is flesh and blood believers that do all manner of spiritual wickedness. The problem is that we “lump together” the person with the wickedness and think we deal with a “wicked person”. And, momentarily, that is true. The key is that we must recognize that there is a wicked spirit, of some sort, influencing the person into thinking, feeling and doing the wickedness. This is the exact reverse of the Holy Spirit influencing us into holy thoughts, feelings and actions. This unique book, in simple language, clarifies the Biblical keys to real victory over “sin and the flesh” that have been in the Scriptures all along.
