TOPIC: The Weapons Of Our Warfare (DCLM Daily Manna 30 March 2024)

KEY VERSE: “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

TEXT: 2 Corinthians 10:3-9 (KJV)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting 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;

6 And being ready to avenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trusts himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so are we Christ’s.

8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for improvement, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

9 I may not seem as if I would terrify you with letters.

DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:

Paul was a citizen of Cilicia, a province of Rome and home to the notorious Cilician pirates. These bandits of the Mediterranean had built fortifications in Cilicia Trachea, a rugged, mountainous area in the west from which they controlled the entire maritime route from the Middle East to Rome. At the height of their power, the pirates pillaged ships, enslaved people from land harbors, and spread hunger and terror throughout the region. When they launched a raid at Ostia, barely fifteen miles from Rome, causing the grip of famine to tighten on the famed seat of power, Rome had finally had enough. General Pompey was sent to dismantle the extensive pirate network. In 89 days, he routed the pirates by pulling down their strongholds and forcing them into open spaces where they could easily be defeated.

This was the true legend behind Paul’s illustration in today’s passage. We need to pull down the strongholds of Satan through the weapons of our warfare. Satan’s strongholds are his command-and-control center, from where he launches spiritual attacks and incursions into defenseless human lives—lacking the grace and power of God, the natural man is a mere pawn in the devil’s chess game.

Pulling down every stronghold is possible when we receive the power and authority that Christ gives after our repentance from sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation grants the believer access to the mighty weapons of righteousness, faith, and prayer wielded from an impregnable fortress – the name of Jesus.

In Jesus’ name, begin to cast down every ideology, imagination, or situation that opposes your knowledge of God as a good, gracious, and benevolent One.

Recognizing your authority in Christ guarantees your victory.
