CHAMPION CHURCH • PS STEPHEN BLOOMFIELD

The Battle Behind The Battle – What it Truth?
Series so far…
• There are 2 spirits in an epic war
o Antichrist – anti-anointing, divine power, anti-Jesus, god of this world, father of lies, prince of the atmosphere
Eph 6:12 AMP
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places.

o Spirit of Christ – Christ in you, your hope of glory

• The world continues to fight against only one thing; the Word of God – is it truth? Or not.
• God has given the world: six, one thousand year “days”
o 1-2 Chaos | 3-4 Torah | 5-6 Grace
• The seventh “day” is the reign of Christ
• These are the last days – He has poured out His Spirit on all flesh
• We live in this world, but are not of this world
• Our weapons are spiritual because we are spiritual beings

If we live like the bible is the truth, then we are free from traps of the world
– Our marriages are meant to be God’s gift to us
– Our finances are meant to be a blessing, beyond our needs
– Our children are meant to be arrows in our hands
– Our lives are meant to be lived filled with the Spirit
– Our voice is meant to be heard in the city
– Our love is meant to be known to the world
– Our praise is meant to bring the presence of God
– Our prayer is meant to put our requests under the authority/rule of heaven
– Our service is meant to let Christ work through us

Romans 8:1-2,5-6,9-11,26-28
1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.

5 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.

9 But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you.

11 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. 27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 The Message (MSG)
3-6 The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.
