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 strongholds.) 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 Cor. 10:3,4,

So what are our weapons?

According to this passage, we have 4 vital pieces of information regarding these weapons:

1. They are not the weapons of the world

2. They have divine power

3. They are associated with the ‘knowledge of God.’

4. Their purpose in warfare is to take our thoughts captive – aligning back to Christ.

In Eph 6:10-18 – Paul listed the whole armour of God.

• Only one piece of the armour is an OFFENSIVE weapon – the sword.

• The belt, breastplate, shield, shoes and helmet are all DEFENSIVE, protective pieces of amour intended to keep us from being injured by the weapons of the evil one.

• The sword of the Spirit – clearly identified as the Word of God, is the only offensive weapon listed in the whole armour of God.

When Jesus was tempted by the devil in the wilderness, He fought back with the Word of God.
