Spiritual Warfare
It was one of those days on Wednesday.  Why not attack hard and heavy on a day of praying and fasting from friends from all over the wrold.   On the flip side we literally had a clear answer to one of our prayers fall right into our lap.  Thank you thank you! We serve an awesome GOD!!!!
A lot of Christians I know don't want to believe, that Spiritual warfare is absolutely real.  The bible speaks of spiritual warfare in many places throughout the bible but most directly in Ephesians  where Paul speaks about putting on the full armor of God. 
Ephesians 6:12 (King James Version)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Since it's warfare, God instructs Christians to use a very specific set of armor and weapons in Ephesians 6:14-18
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
These are weapons of peace.
Spiritual warfare is a reality of the Christian  life.  Since our side wins and the devil has already lost, he has nothing to lose in trying to take as many people with him in defeat.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
Just want to thank everyone again for all the wonderful prayers and fasting.
