Fighting the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12)
1 Timothy 1:18-20 (KJV) This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
All christian people must learn to fight Spiritually
- Ephesians 6:12
- For we wrestle not against flesh and blood
- but against principalities against powers
- against the rulers of the darkness of this world
- against spiritual wickedness in high places
*Illustration* The Tea Party is doing lot of good standing up for the American people and their Republic Rights. One point however they need to do… is give their heart and life to Jesus and let Him lead their personal life at the same time. I know by their fruits some are not saved. Their language proves that. They are indeed doing much good though. Also, American people need to pray for their complete Salvation, and Divine Wisdom for God.
Imagine young David trying to fight Goliath in his own fleshly strength. If David had said, “I come to you in my strength” he would have been torn to pieces by this giant. But… instead, he fought a good warfare by saying, “I come to you in the name of the Lord…” that is God fighting through us physically and Spiritually.
When some young or old person does you true christians wrong – they are not fighting through flesh and blood (Verse 12). In fact, many times they do not even realize how satan is using them in the spiritual realm.
Deliver them unto satan
Do you remember Paul telling the people that there was a young man who was guilty of fornication with his own dads wife? (1Cor.5:1) (stepmother)
Well… then Paul says:
1 Corinthians 5:5 (KJV) To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
If only christians would realize we are in a life and death battle… struggle, for our soul and the Salvation of others. We were called (All true christians) to fight for the souls of others as well as our self. Millions would not now be in everlasting torments of hell if you and I took this more serious.
Paul says destroy flesh that soul will be saved
He says “turn them over to satan” so in the end their spirit will be saved and go to Heaven even though their flesh will be destroyed.
Let us read the Scripture again… 1 Corinthians 5:5 (KJV) To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
It is absolutely dangerous to truly get saved… then, backslide going back into sin. Not only do you crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame, (Hebrews 6:6) but you do this willfully.
FOOTNOTE Necessary Here: (Read Hebrews 6:1-8) Many people will wonder about the meaning of this Scripture so here is exactly the True meaning
It does not mean a backslider can not repent and get saved again. The Bible says they can over and over. Also history proves it too. It is meaning that if a person was TRULY SAVED, but… they backslide and let their heart become seared over with a hot iron… become very hard hearted – then, even though the Holy Ghost never stops calling them to repentance, their heart is so hard, they can no longer hear the pleading of the Holy Spirit.
It is absolutely dangerous to truly get saved… then, backslide going back into sin. Not only do they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame, (Hebrews 6:6) but… do this willfully.
If Holy Righteous christians pray, such a person will have their flesh suddenly destroyed, and… go to hell if they do not repent of their backsliding. That is the very reason why the anointed of the Lord need to intercede for the lost and backslidden.
So they will get saved, come back to Jehovah, and go to Heaven
That is why we charge christian men and women to war a good warfare. Know how to pray… intercede – study the KJV Bible. Not only for your Salvation but for others. Billions are “RIGHT NOW” in eternal torments because Christians are too uncaring to pray.
