Christian warfare, not a battle of the flesh — Bishop Obiosa
The secret to winning any Christian battle is relying on God, putting your faith in Him and facing the battle squarely under His instructions says the Rt. Rev. David Obiosa, Bishop of Ndokwa Anglican Diocese. The Bishop made this known at the September edition of the monthly Power Night of the Abuja Anglican Diocese held at the Cathedral Church of the Advent, Life Camp, Abuja.
Speaking on the theme, ‘The Battle is the Lord’s,’ Bishop Obiosa noted that Christian life is full of battles, saying at baptism one is enlisted into the army of Christ. He stressed that the Christian warfare is not a fight with the flesh, but with spiritual weapons.
According to him, the battle is not won by power, nor by might, but by the Spirit of God. The Bishop of Ndokwa Anglican Diocese observed that life is filled with challenging, adding that David and the Israelites were faced challenges. He said Christians are facing all kinds of warfare today, including persecution for their faith.
He charged the congregation to put on the armour of God, as listed out in the Bible, so that they can stand and face the devil. He explained that if one fights under God, one can never lose. Therefore, he urged all to submit to God, believe and trust Him, and resist the devil.He said that as one continues to trust God concerning Nigeria and carry out warfare spiritually, the devil will bow and Jesus will reign.
