    2 Corinthians 10:4

    Please review the 'spiritual truth' of the word 'Strong Holds' and what it means on the Current Events page (two entries) of a world

    The Current Events page is a collection of thoughts and discussions on todays current events and how it helps explain and examine them and put them into spiritual context.

    *strongholds-G3794-ochyro'ma=a castle; a fortress; arguments and beliefs used to defend against an opponent; per Strongs.

    Paul here reminds the 'saints' that they are not ignorant of Satan's devices; that Satan concentrates on deceiving the mind, the thinking of his victims. Did he not 'change' the minds of Adam and Eve?

    So, those who are not aware of Satan's 'devices', his plans, his strategies, are all focused on your mind. This awareness also helps us know how they think, how they plan and what they plan.

    *casting down-G2507-kathaireo'=to take down; to destroy; to pull down; to demolish; to refute.

    Bringing into captivity every thought to submit to the mind of Christ is the aim here. Yes, submitting to Christ's word, his truth; these are the 'weapons' we use to cast down or pull down all human reasoning. We must first begin in our own mind to pull down all human reasoning. Only then can we be prepared to 'pull down every thought' that is in opposition to the Christ. This one part of the spiritual war we must wage with Satan and his 'seed' Esau, the Edomite Jew.
