In the beginning God created an orderly universe out of love. But somewhere in the primordial past a number of fallen angelic agents began working against the Creator and his creation. As a result, human beings are caught up and drawn into a cosmic battle. According to the Scriptures, this "spiritual warfare" impacts us today in visible ways, as the devil opposes God's restorative mission revealed in Christ and his Church. So, how do we resist this spiritual evil at work in the world? In Not Against Flesh & Blood, Pastor David helps us to see an oft-neglected truth that prayer is a spiritual weapon.

Sermon Series: Jesus Heals
Sermon Title: Living in a Warzone (2 of 4)
Scripture Reading: Romans 8:28; Acts 10:38; John 9:1-12; Matthew 4:23-25

Is God to blame for the pain and suffering we experience? If we think that God is the one who harms us, we will find it difficult to go to him for healing. Thankfully, Jesus reveals that God loves us and is for us. The evil we see around us is a result of a cosmic battle between the forces of good and evil. In Living in a Warzone (2 of 4), Pastor David shares how this perspective can change the way we view everything.
