I will build My Church and the powers of hell will not be able to conquer it.

-Matthew 16:18

By now you should be teachers. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the first things you need to know from God’s Word. You still need milk instead of solid food. Anyone who lives on milk cannot understand the teaching about being right with God. He is a baby. Solid food is for full-grown men.

 -Hebrews 5:12-14

1. I must be able to tell the difference between .

We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.

 -Ephesians 6:12

We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

 -2 Corinthians 10:3-4

2. I must use the God has given me, not my own.

Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of pea

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one, take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people

-Ephesians 6:13-18
