Spiritual Warfare for Lost Loves Ones
To Bring Those You Love to Christ
People often ask us as we travel to minister, "What can we do about family members? What can we do about friends and loved ones that are lost, or living a life of sin and taken over by the devil?" This question concerns the people in your life who are outside the family of God, but who do not want any help. They are simply not open for direct ministry.
Through spiritual warfare, intercessory prayer, and the ministry of love, we are able to help create the best possible environment around a loved one to come to know Jesus. But we must not lose our closeness with the Lord in the process, as these situations can be quite challenging to our spiritual walk. Using the wall-building example of Nehemiah, and insights from the Book of Jude, Frank Hammond explains the importance of edifying those around us as a means of leading them into a direct relationship with Jesus Christ. Frank Hammond says:
"Remember that the Lord Christ is with you. The Lord is strong; the Lord is mighty; He is the Lord of hosts, the Lord of armies. He will fight in your behalf. Get in the battle and don't let your family or friends go down without resistance. Put up resistance and fight for your loves ones!"
