DAY 250 - How to Fight A Spiritual Warfare?

Today’s Reading: Revelation 12

Please read Revelation 12 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Revelation 12:

Chinese: 12&version=CUV

NIV: 12&version=NIV

ESV: 12&version=ESV


And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. Revelation 12: 7-8

You have to believe that we are in a spiritual warfare! It's not easy to understand what this chapter is talking about. and it's not good to overspeculate what this chapter is trying to tell us. But, at least we need to understand that spiritual warfare is a reality.

The best way I know to fight spiritual warfare is to use spiritual bullets. To me it means fasting, prayers, prayer walks and even prayer runs. Today when I was thinking of this chapter, I received a message that we need to have another prayer run after our three prayer runs a month ago. I would like to invite all of you who are reading this blog to come this Saturday to Richmond Emmanuel Church(7451 Elm for our weekly prayer meeting at 9a.m. and then a prayer runs after that. The prayer run will be around 20 minutes. Last time(a month ago)Rev. Ed Hird came to join us and you can see three pictures we took during the prayer run. Let's come together to prayer run once more to bless our neighbourhoods!

Today is a very good day for Michelle, no fever, no chill and everything well. The only thing not good is she is starting to lose lots and lots of hairs. She is prepared for that, though it's not easy to take this reality.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help us to understand that spiritual warfare is so real. Teach us to know how to use spiritual bullets to fight this spiritual warfare! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a disciple. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online disciple to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!

    We are so grateful that Jesus has given us the way to defeat the accuser, by the blood of the lamb, the word of our testimony, and our loving not our lives unto death. We continue to lift up Michelle for healing, strength, and victory, in Jesus' name. Amen.
