e people had been completely disarmed by the enemy’s strategy while they were in captivity.
I was hit with the realization that our spiritual enemy has done this to the Church. Where are those with the knowledge of spiritual warfare – those who know what 2 Cor 10:4 is talking about – who walk as Jesus did in setting captives free? Hasn’t there been a great shortage of “blacksmiths” among the people of God so that while we still see people respond to the gospel, they are not equipped to walk in victory and freedom? I think we need to quickly restore the ranks of the “blacksmiths” among people of faith – We have been far too vulnerable for too long.
