The Unseen War

The Unseen War.

It exists.
It is happening in and around you and to you.
You may not see it or sense it, but you are in a war.

David Kortje writes about this war, how it affects you, and what you can do about it.

Here, read this excerpt:

"I find it interesting that in the midst of a great battle-field such as Gettysburg or Normandy, no one would dream of finding all of the warriors escaping unscathed. Nor would one think him less of a soldier for his scars. Yest somehow, we in Christendom have adopted these strange beliefs about our fight.

I wonder if it is because of threat oft-spoken phrase that if you will just"give your life to Jesus, everything will be OK." Or maybe it is that "Jesus has already won the victory," or that "we are more than conquerors." We have already discussed the strength and intent of our enemy. I am hoping that by now you are coming to a deeper understanding of just what this battlefield that we call the Christian walk is really all about. I trust that you are recognizing the flaming arrows of the evil one being shot at your hearts of faith day and night. I know that you have been hit."

David presents his experiences, the moving of the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God in such a way that, after reading this book, you walk away strengthened, encouraged, and determined to fight the good fight, finish the race, and kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4

They Did Not Realize

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
