Random sermon quote: "The sad fact is that many have retired from the battlefield. It's very easy to tell whether you've got a fight on your hands or not, or whether you're in the battle. There are few contrasts greater than that between war and peace, and you'll know if people, or principalities, or powers are fighting against you" - Warfare

Latest Sermon - "Feet Fitted With The Preparation Of The Gospel Of Peace"
We've got to be careful using the analogies that the Holy Spirit has given us here, and all the metaphors and descriptions, that we don't put this into a realm that is unreal to everyday existence. These are life conditions that God wants us to have, in order to cancel out the life conditions that are the weapons of the enemy that he wants to bring into our life, to bring destruction and death. Now, the enemy's life conditions, if you can identify with them, are often a sign that our Christian defences have been compromised, and the devil has gained access somehow. We said last week, he's got under the armour somehow. So if you can discern that there is deception, there is lying, there is strife, contention, disturbance, there is mistrust, suspicion, doubt, there is hopelessness, despair, and depression - that's a sign that the enemy has got in somehow, that your armour has not been secure enough. Over a period of time, you will then be able to discern that these are life conditions that the enemy has been sowing in your lifestyle, day by day, in order to counteract the influence that God would have upon you through His protection and His wholeness...

The Christian Warrior: Wrestling With Sin, Satan, The World, And The Flesh
by Isaac Ambrose
In The Christian Warrior, Isaac Ambrose (1604-1664) provides armament and strategy to fight our tireless adversary, the devil. He begins by showing, from Ephesians 6:12, how all God's people are warriors engaged in a battle, that our enemy is both powerful and malicious, and that we must wrestle and strive hard against him.
Ambrose illustrates how Satan attacks us at different stages of life: in childhood, at our first conversion, during the prime of life, and at the time of death. Ambrose gives practical, point-by-point advice throughout the book on how to cope with these attacks. He illustrates how Satan attempts to foil the believer coming to Christ at each stage of his conversion. He then shows how Satan tries to convince the doubting believer that his conversion is not genuine, and how to answer those arguments. He continues by showing how to endure persecution, how to resist temptations of the flesh (lust, pride, anger, condemning others, dishonest gain), and how Satan attempts to exploit the special vulnerabilities of both weak and strong Christians. He concludes by preparing the believer for 'the final battle' in the hour of his death (which is often his most intense time of attack), by illustrating how to avoid the extremes of presumption and despair.
Even readers not accustomed to Puritan works will find Ambrose's warm and engaging style both eminently useful and Christ-exalting. Includes a helpful biographical preface to the life and times of the author.
