John Bishop shares the life journey that led him in 2007 to begin processing life through the lenses of spiritual warfare. He explains how his first 12 years of faith in Jesus were spent learning about war, training for war, going to war (in Vietnam) and recovering from war. In 2007, God showed him that “those days were for these days”.
John helps us understand that (1) we are at war against Satan (“the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy” and mass shootings like Las Vegas are instances where the thief found a willing ally to further his agenda), (2) we are all wounded (by our own sins and the sins of others) but in Jesus’s world we heal by getting INTO the fight and (3) we have weapons to fight spiritual warfare (chief among them are forgiveness and generosity) and are called to use them (we are called to be allies of Jesus in establishing His Kingdom and bringing the fight to the thief). Bishop explains how fellowship as a band of brothers (like NCS Energy Groups) is a strategic weapon in the fight.
