for a noble solution to their grievances? No. Can you reach an amicable
solution with them. No. So we are left with confrontation, enough physical

But, it's really a warfare of a different kind, and so

It's a warfare of the heart -Matthew
What are the weapons of this warfare? -Ephesians

Never threaten with a big sword. Having
a big sword and the confidence and ability to use it is all that's necessary.

26:52,53 "Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his

to face His destiny with courage -Matthew

invisible things to the extent of our lack in understanding Colossians
2:15. Here it says Christ has already defeated any and all enemies.
strength is in Him, and comes from belief -Mark
