God’s Plan for Spiritual Battle by Russell Stendal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“I love a good fight. When unjustly attacked, I have learned to seek the guidance and leadership of the Holy Spirit and retaliate by Overcoming Evil with Good. There is a huge difference between a Peacemaker and a Pacifist!
This Battle Plan for spiritual warfare, gleaned from the life and message of Jesus, especially the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes.”
God’s Plan for Spiritual Battle; Victory of Sin, the World, and the Devil, is a book that is written to all Christians. The author, Russell Stendal, brings about the premise that we, as Christ Followers, not only should, but must be living our lives and interacting with this world in the way that Jesus spoke of when He taught the Beatitudes in order to live in victory over sin this world and most definitely the devil. The author walks us through each of the Beatitudes… not with flowery words, but real truth. Nothing in this book is sugar-coated.
In opening each of the Beatitudes, he un-wraps the truth for such topics as: Going God’s Way, Not My Way, Training for the Battle, The New Covenant, my favorite chapter – Integrity vs. Hypocrisy, The Peacemakers, Putting Satan to Flight, Virtue; The Key to Activating God’s Promise, Rebuilding the Ancient Ruins, The Seven Woes, and Overcoming the Curse.
I recommend this book to anyone that is wondering if they are living a just enough life. Just enough to call themselves a Christian, just enough to get in to Heaven. It is His perfect plan that we have His truths so ingrained in us, that when we are faced with diversity, we are victorious and not defeated.
