Fighting Spiritual War - We lose because of our unbelief, our lack of faith.

This is spiritual warfare. There's nothing new under the sun. The devil has been trafficking and killing children for millennia, eg., Herod and Pharaoh murdered them.

We need to prepare ourselves for spiritual warfare.

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." John 15:5

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

"If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7

“But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.” Matthew 10:19.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:10-12

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit.. Ephesians 6:14-18

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." John 15:5

"We ought to obey God rather than men." -- Acts 5:27-29

1PE 3:14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

1PE 3:17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

1PE 4:16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

1PE 4:19 “Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator”

“And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Matthew 17:14-21

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

Modern forms of slavery: The Federal Reserve steals our wealth by printing money out of thin air that causes inflation and constant devaluation of the dollar. So-called "child support" / extortion orders & custody litigation incentivized by federal legislation steals federal funds to enrich state courts, agencies and judges, and generates fees to the family court parasites: attorneys, psychologists, social workers, visitation baby sitters, etc. And the IRS tricks Americans into believing they are required to file tax returns, when in fact most are not.

So, basically we are all on the reservation or plantation. We're all slaves unless and until we wake up and stand on our rights.

Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God. See

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." John 15:5
