Spiritual Warfare.
How do we win against spiritual attacks?

In this study, we examine what Spiritual Warfare looks like in the material realm so we can understand how it operates in the spiritual realm.

This is a key aspect of Bible study. The Old Testament is a physical reality to many of the spiritual realities of the New Testament. The Old Testament stories, which are real and historical, are allusions to the spiritual war going on around us.

2 Kings chapters 6 and 7 will show us how Elijah won against the spiritual warfare battle that was going on around him. Everyone else was anxious but he was not. Why?

Let’s dive into God’s Word for the answers about winning the unseen battle of spiritual warfare.

Scriptures Studied:  2 Kings 6; 2 Kings 7; Exodus 15:3; Romans 12:19; Romans 5:10; Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; 1 Corinthians 10:13


Kings 1 & 2 Facts:

  • Author: Unkown
  • Genre: Narrative History (400 years).


Theological History of Kings 1 & 2:

  • Begins with David’s end (970 bc), Solomon’s building and ends with national devastation – exile to Babylon (561 bc).
  • Good and Evil kings.
  • Each king has an epitaph… did they follow the Lord or not?
  • True and False Prophets abound.
  • God rules all nations, not just Israel.
  • The Main Theme: There is ONE God in Israel.



Points to Note:

  1. God cares for His servants.
  2. God is over the big and small matters of our lives.
  3. The spiritual realm is a realm of war… Exodus 15:3 (ESV) The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is his name.
    1. Prophetic Student – Returned to where he lost his “edge”
    2. Elisha – Interceded for those around him to see the heavenly realm.
    3. Lepers – Stepped out in faith and risked it all.
  4. There is a spiritual power available to you.
  5. The enemy cannot defeat you because God is with you.


He’s God over the small things.
The story of the buoyant axe head may seem trivial—trivial, that is, until
the table saw you borrowed ends up at the bottom of the river, or the
pickup truck you drove crashes into the ravine. Then it can seem like a
matter of life and death. Causing an accident, losing someone else’s stuff,
falling into debt, heading for financial ruin—these are the kinds of
personal crises that make people sick at heart. But God knows exactly
what his servants need, even when it is nothing more than a piece of
iron. He loves to save us when we call for help. – Philip Graham Ryken



There is a battle going on at all times around you:

  • To be ignorant of the battle is to be defeated
  • To ignore battle is to be defeated
  • To not understand that the odds are for you in the battle is to be defeated


God’s heroes embrace the fight:
1.Abraham – fought a war with 5 kings
2.Jacob – fought with GOD.
3.Moses – fought back the men attacking Jethro’s daughters.
Then against the powers of Egypt.
4.Joshua fought 31 kings and 10 nations.
5.Caleb fought for the mountain top land.
6.Judges – all had to fight (including Deborah).
7.David – fought Goliath and the Philistines.
8.Peter – was willing to fight the soldiers.
9.Paul – fought wild beasts in Ephesus (1 Corinthians 15)


How do we engage the spiritual power available to us?


  • 2 Kings 6:17 (ESV) Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes…”


  • Mark 9:29 (NKJV) “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”


  • Ephesians 6:17 (ESV) and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God


  • Matthew 4:4 (ESV) But he answered, “It is written, “ ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ”


  • Jude 20–21 (ESV) But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith


Pastoral Thoughts:

  1. We serve an unseen God.
  2. Never underestimate the Church.  It keeps growing in spite of what is going on around it.
  3. Nothing shocks God.
  4. Prayer enables the believer to see challenges as God sees them.
  5. Those whom you are disciplining should outdo you just as you have outdone those who came before you.
  6. When you know God has saved and delivered you, you can’t help but share the good news.
  7. If you are not prepared to fight, you are just waiting to be defeated.
  8. You can win because you have JESUS!


Questions to Consider:

  1. Have you ever felt like you were bothering God?
  2. What do you need to ask God about today?
  3. Why idols do you need to expel from your life?
  4. Are you living in a state of comfortable Christianity?



Read the Word of God daily, seek Him, and fast and pray for revival.
