You may be wondering how these two words go together in any way, shape, or form.  First, let me assure you that this blog is not about advocating physical violence and has nothing to do with the items in your gun cabinet.  This site is about answering the call of Nahum 2:1 in our modern era:

He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

Without a doubt, the enemy of our age, Satan, is launching an uprecedented, in-your-face attack upon mankind and the Church of the Living God.  This attack is not one of tanks, machine guns, and surface-to-air artillery, but rather it is one of ideas and philosophies that seek to undermine Biblical Truth and to overthrow the authority of God in the minds of people.  The mind is truly Satan’s battleground of choice in our age, and unlike ever before, strongholds are being raised up by him to hinder the Gospel from reaching the hearts of men.  Consider 2 Corinthians 4:3-4:

3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

According to these Scriptures, how does Satan prevent people from receiving the Gospel of Jesus Christ?  By blinding their MINDS.  He that controls the mind controls the individual.  A person will not accept in their heart what their mind rejects as false.  Satan knows this, and as the ‘father of lies’, he is very skillful at using deception, lies, and false ideas to lead men away from their Creator and into ultimate destruction.  This has been his agenda since the very beginning. He is the thief that desires to steal, kill, and to destroy that which God loves and will stop at nothing to condemn as many to Hell as he possibly can, by any means that he possibly can.  Fortunately, God has provided us with everything necessary to not only expose Satan’s methods, but to also utterly overcome him.  2 Corinthians 10:4-5 tells us:

4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The Word of God is our best and most powerful weapon in this battle.  It is the ‘two-edged’ Sword by which we attack the kingdom of darkness and pull down the strongholds that Satan uses to take and hold his prisoners captive.  Our enemy knows all too well the power of God’s Word and is trying very hard in our day to discredit the Bible as a way of keeping people from accessing its sacred contents and powerful Truth.  As Christians, God and His Word must be our ultimate Authority and the lens through which we view and interpret the world around us.  That is what this blog is about—equipping Christians to rely solely upon the Truth of Scripture in order to expose, dismantle, and overcome the lies of the enemy and to deliver a reasoned defense of the Christian faith to those who oppose the Gospel. It is no longer enough to simply declare what we know to be true, but we must also be able to show WHY it is true. For too long, the mighty spiritual weapons of our Faith have sat neglected and unused.  It’s time to take them up again and to fortify ourselves mightily with the absolute truth of God’s Word, building up the Kingdom of Christ upon the ruins of the kingdom of Satan. After all, if God is for us, who cares who is against us!
