    Cool Christians Weapon

    CHRISTIAN'S WEAPON--HOLY SPIRIT
    [Eph 6:13-17
    13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
    15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
    16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
    [Heb 4:12-13
    12 For the word of God [is] living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things [are] naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we [must give] account.
    [2Co 10:3-5
    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
    4 For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
    5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
    [1Co 15:47-49
    47 The first man [was] of the earth, [made] of dust; the second Man [is] the Lord from heaven.
    48 As [was] the [man] of dust, so also [are] those [who are made] of dust; and as [is] the heavenly [Man], so also [are] those [who are] heavenly.
    49 And as we have borne the image of the [man] of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly [Man].
    [Jhn 3:3, 5-8
    3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." ...
    5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
    6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
    8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
    [1Pe 1:23-25
    23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
    24 because "All flesh [is] as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away,
    25 But the word of the LORD endures forever." Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
    [Jhn 14:24-26
    24 "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
    25 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.
    26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
    [Jhn 16:8-14
    8 "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    9 "of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
    10 "of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
    11 "of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
    12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear [them] now.
    13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
    14 "He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare [it] to you.

    Do you believe that the Holy Spirit is the only weapon that a Christian has?

    What about;

    Revelation 12:11 New King James Version (NKJV)
    11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    They are Christians. Who else can overcome by the blood of the lamb and their testimony?
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    So, The blood and their testimony are not the Holy Spirit.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS

    Heb 9:15-18
    15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
    16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
    17 For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.
    18 Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.
    Luke 14:27
    27 "And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
    Gal 5:24
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    1 Cor 15:31
    31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
    Rom 8:7-8
    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
    8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
    1 Cor 1:18-19
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
    1 Cor 1:21
    21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
    2 Cor 2:15
    15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
    2 Cor 4:3-4
    3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
    4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
    2 Cor 4:16-18
    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
    17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
    18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
    Rom 4:16-17
    16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all
    17 (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed-- God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
    Rom 3:3-4
    3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect?
    4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: "That You may be justified in Your words, and may overcome when You are judged."
    (NKJ)
    [Heb 9:22
    22 And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.


    xxx The message of the cross is that now the new testament is valid or now in affect. It simbalizes dieing and being born aga
    in or raised from the dead. The new testament is our grace. The law of Christ. The finished work of Christ is the law of the new testament. The law of Christ. The finished work was our example that one can live a sinless life in Jesus. Without the shedding of blood there is not remission of sin.

    [Jhn 19:30
    30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.


    I Jn 1:7
    7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.


    Acts 4:12
    12 "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
    (NKJ)

    Heb 9:16-18
    16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
    17 For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.
    18 Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.
    (NKJ)

    Col 1:19-29
    19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,
    20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
    21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled
    22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight--
    23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

    Col 2:11-14
    11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,
    12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
    13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
    14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
    (NKJ)

    1 Pet 1:17-20
    17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear;
    18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers,
    19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
    20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you
    (NKJ)

    Rev 1:5-6
    5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
    6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
    (NKJ)

    Mark 10:45
    45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
    (NKJ)

    1 Tim 2:5-6
    5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
    6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
    (NKJ)

    John 6:39-40
    39 "This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
    40 "And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."
    (NKJ)
