10:4 For the weapons of our warfare - Those we use in this war. Are not carnal - But spiritual, and therefore mighty to the throwing down of strong holds - Of all the difficulties which men or devils can raise in our way. Though faith and prayer belong also to the Christian armour, #Eph 6:15|, &c., yet the word of God seems to be here chiefly intended.
2Co 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare, etc. Since these were not carnal, the might was not in human strength, but in God who gave them power to overcome the strongholds of sin.

This is a revelational scripture for us to know that we need to fight using the spritual weapons which are very potent in God to overcome stronghold of darkness and the devil.The bible talks about the whole world lying in WICKEDNESS and that the secret place of this world is the habitation of CRUELTY!So to survive in this kind of world we must not war after the flesh but engage in spritual warfare using our mighty spritual weapons on a daily basis for we fight against a tireless and relentless enemy--- that old serpent!we shall remain victorious in Jesus Name.Halleluyah!

I must have my time with God before I do anything before my mine will and emotions take control.

The verse tells us that the means of warring against the devil and his evil forces is not done through material psychological philosophical nor by intellectual means but the war is done by God and His Spirit and once understood it is so powerful to the pulling down of the devil s towers

The weapons are there for you and I to use.the question now is do you use the right weapon at the right time.
Jackson's comment on 2013-11-17 05:57:30:
The weapons of our warfare are not Carnal but mighty through God; therefore this means we need to grow in the might of God by diligently studying His word and enriching ourselves in the knowledge of the word. God and His word are one, with the application of the power in God's word We are able to pull down Strongholds/Fortress of the wicked

A man's mind is complicated and we tend to gather evil thoughts thereby adding to the difficulty of serving our Master. After careful study we see that the first stronghold mentioned is the imagination.

We are fighting everyday, a battle that has already been won. We desperately need Gods word to help us fight the flesh, our desires, our short comings must be lifted up to God. He fights for us.
Paul's comment on 2013-05-30 14:02:12:
He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.God has given us in Christ power and authority to overcome all the powers of the devil.We are victors not victims.

THE SCIPTURE TALKS ABOUT THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT BEING THE WORD. IT ALSO TALKS ABOUT WRESTLING NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES ect WHATEVER IS IN YOUR LIFE AND KEEPING YOU HELD DOWN IS NOT OF GOD. SPEAK HIS WORD
Sue's comment on 2012-12-04 18:33:24:
The devil, his demons and the weapons he uses to attack us, cannot be fought physically. When we pray, God gives His personal power to his angels and the holy spirit and Jesus Christ, in addition to Christís blood and God's anointing that destroy yokes. He has permitted his power to come to us, to fight for us. To demolish strongholds, demolish things and people sent to pretend that they are for us, yet sent by the devil to destroy us. The power also destroys and restores the truth of God, subjecting anything that attempts to exalt itself above the knowledge and Word of God. That is why we have to always believe in God that he has our best interest and will fight for us. He says no weapon formed against us will prosper. He says even if people and forces, witchcraft and demonic powers gather against us, they that gather, gather in vain. What an honor, What a God. Thank you Lord.
