SPIRITUAL WARFARE: WINNING THE WAR
I believe these verse right here give us the final piece in the
puzzle of winning the war. The Scriptures teach that the war has
already been won. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ has already won

They overcame him by the blood of the lamb. Turn back to
Matthew and I have some verses I want to connect here because I think it
gives us the total picture. Matthew 12 - th ...
