“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

Wars are fought and won through strategic and tactical use or deployment of weapons of warfare.
Please understand that God has enlisted us as soldiers in His army upon the earth to occupy until He comes. We occupy the earth by enforcing the rule of the kingdom and the will of God in earthly realms whether the citizens of the earth would allow the reign of our King or not.

When Jesus left us here on earth, He knows that we are like vulnerable lambs in the midst of ferocious wolves that are ever eager to devour us yet He still commanded us to occupy the earth till He comes.

Please understand this very clearly, God did not put us in this earth to be devoured by our enemies even though He knows that we are in a hateful and hostile environment.
While it is true that some of us might, for the sake of the Kingdom, be persecuted even unto martyrdom, it is never the will of God that the whole body of believers in a geographical location like Nigeria will be wiped away like Sodom and Gomorrah, except through a divine judgment.

Let the heart of the Body of Christ in Nigeria be at peace, it is against God that we have sinned and as we humble ourselves, pray and seek His face, repenting from all our wickedness, God will be merciful unto us and He will preserve His heritage, the Church & the people in Nigeria and all that He had wrought for us since the beginning.

David declared, “Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.” (Psalms 124:6). As the covenant people of God in Christ, we have not been given as a prey to the teeth of the adversary. What David is saying is that God is committed to ensuring that we are not consumed from the land.

Although God is ever willing and ready to preserve us in the land, we must be prepared to fight. Yes, you heard me right, we must get our weapons and be ready to fight. However, you need to understand that although we are physical members and citizens of Nigeria, we do not strive with flesh and blood. In fact, as servants of God, we are not to strive but be gentle to all men (2 Timothy 2:24). We do not fight battles against our enemies through the employment of physical weapon. We are in possession of spiritual weapons that can guarantee that we would live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty in Nigeria. And these weapons are superior weapons that are mighty through God above every other forms of physical weapons.

Please understand that our submission to God must first be fully established before we can expect our weapons of warfare to be mighty through God. Rebellion against God will make us to be vulnerable to our adversaries no matter how mightily superior our weapons are. We must not be as the children of Ephraim.

“The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law; (Psalms 78:9-10)

They had what it takes to defeat the enemies hands down but they ended up turning their backs as the enemy put them to flight. It was not because their enemies were stronger than them, rather it was because they were not steadfast in their covenant with God; they did not keep His words and refused to walk in His ways.

Please note that there is no armour provided by God to cover our backs; the whole armour of God are for the covering of our front. This is because God has ordained it that we would never have to turn our backs in battle as long as we abide steadfast in Him. The Church in Nigeria must wake up and put on the whole armour of God as a precursor to our engagement of the adversaries in battle. It is only when our obedience is complete that we will be ready to revenge all disobedience.
