Episode 5 of the Spiritual Growth Podcast explores Spiritual warfare part 2, in which we gain more understanding of God's kingdom, of hell, of free-, evil and rebellion.
God loves us enough to give us free-will. We can use our free-will to return God's love and strive to be more Christlike or to rebel and remain in the prison of selfishness and pride. The ultimate example of pride is Satan’s desire to exalt himself above God.
When we begin to believe in Jesus and follow Jesus, we become a threat to the enemy. He hates believers because he is afraid of us. If we are prepared for his tricks we can resist the enemy and he will flee from us. This episode shares the enemy's tricks and how we can overcome them.
Overcoming begins with recognizing the enemy voice, naming it which engages the neocortex the logical mind, and then distracting yourself after you talk back to the enemy voice. There's more to it but that provides a good beginning and this podcast fills in the gaps.
