Title: CFC - Evangelism & Spiritual Warfare


1
CLP Training - Talk 1
2
Why are you here?
To serve God To help those who look for God To
share His love and His words to those who seek
them... These are all about others
3
Through our service, God shows us that it is time
for us to realize in our lives the reality that
in this world, we are part of a power struggle
4
The World Today
5
There are 2 kingdoms opposed to each other
6
We are now standing in the face of the greatest
historical confrontation humanity has gone
through. I do not think that... wide circles of
the Christian community realize this fully. We
are now facing the final confrontation between
the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel
versus the anti-Gospel.
7
GOD is rescuing us thru His son, JESUS CHRIST
8
Christian life is a constant battle against
evil, just as Jesus during his life had to
struggle against the devil and his many
temptations The devil tempted Jesus many times
and Jesus experienced temptation and persecution
throughout his lifetime. And he warned that
whoever wants to follow Jesus must be aware of
this reality.
9
All people are born into this battle for the
hearts, minds, souls of men People who are
instruments for other men's redemption are a
direct threat to Satan

Evangelism is the announcement, proclamation, and
preaching of the gospel, the good news of and
about Jesus Christ That Christ died for our
sins according to the Scriptures, that he was
buried, that he was raised on the third day
12
Evangelism is spiritual warfare Against the
rulers, authorities, powers of the dark world and
the spiritual forces of evil (Ephesians 612)

The Armor of God
How do I put on Gods Armor?
By knowing and trusting each part of the armor
25
The Armor of God
1st Piece Belt of Truth
Protection against lies and errors Satan will
make us doubt think we are too sinful Rest on
the truth that God loves us and He will
provide He will not give us a service or put us
in a situation that we cannot handle
I am the WAY, TRUTH and LIFE.. John 146
26
The Armor of God
2nd Piece Breastplate of Righteousness
Protection against evil thoughts sinful
desires If Satan does not succeed by lies, he
will try bombarding our minds with evil
thoughts Resist these temptations Temptations are
not sin unless entertained
"Blessed are they which do hunger thirst for
righteousness for they shall be filled. Matt.

The Armor of God
3rd Piece Sandals of Peace
Protection against an easy lazy life If Satan
cannot disturb us, he will try to make us
comfortable cozy so that we will not disturb
him We need leave our comfort zones go out
after Satan's captives
For He (Christ) is our peace. . . Ephesians
214-15)
28
The Armor of God
4th Piece Shield of Faith
Protection against unbelief Doubts assail us Fear
of failure can cripple our action The nagging
question is Can I do it? We need to have faith
that this is God's work
I am crucified w/ Christ... the life which I
now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the
Son of God... Gal. 220

ailments Satan will try to make you sick He will
create misunderstanding in your families But we
have God's protection
Neither is there salvation in any other...
Acts 412

Protection against spiritual deception
accusations The Word of God is the Sword of the
Spirit Both a weapon protection Read the daily
Scriptures the recommended books
...the Word became flesh dwelt among us, and
we beheld His glory... John 114
31
The Armor of God
7th Piece Prayer
Prayer is talking to the Divine Sovereign God who
hears answers all our prayers, according to His
will Pray at every opportunity Undertake fasting
Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 517
32
The Armor of God
Prayers should be done as much as possible
together as a family or as a community When
people say the Rosary together, it is far more
formidable to the devil than one said privately
because in this public prayer it is an army that
is attacking him - St. Louis de Montfort
33
The Armor of God
Prayer is essential
34
Two More Things
35
Devotion to Angels especially to ones guardian
angel is a very powerful aid in spiritual
warfare that many tend to downplay Having a
devotion means not only having a public and
personal relationship with them but also trying
to imitate their angelic virtues in order to
venerate them
36
Devotion to ones Patron Saint The saint
whose name you bear is already assigned you from
your Baptism - St. Francis de Sales Getting to
know more about him, praying to him, making him a
model for ones life and often calling upon him
for aid is a very powerful help in growing in
holiness
37
Finally
Acknowledge Satan and his power Acknowledge that
thru the Holy Spirit, you have the power
authority over Satan Acknowledge that there will
be difficulties along the way Acknowledge that
this is a won victory
38
All people are part of this battle Are you with
Him or against Him?
39
We have a great
GOD
