"The Weapons Of Our Warfare" (Part One)
2 Corinthians 10:4 says, *The weapons of our warfare are not of the
flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses."
God has placed power in some weapons in God's Word - what are they?
There are five:
1. The Word of God
2. The Name of Jesus
3. The blood of Jesus
4. The word of our testimony
5. Not loving of our lives even to death.

sin aga-inst Theee~)-
e. Meditate on the Word - (Psalm 1:2 says, *But His
delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His
Law he meditates day and night.1)
3. Obey It's commands - (James 1:22 says, "But prove
