Spiritual warfare is a reality in our fallen world, and it's not something the believer can - or should - ignore. In this series, Skip Heitzig encourages us to prepare for the battle by knowing our enemy, our battlefield, and our weapons so we can live victoriously.

Spiritual Warfare Exist
while this is not a book i would say a good follow up to these sermon series would be Armor of God by Skip Heitzig.
this is not a book but the sermon series written and given by Skip comes across as very easy to understand and even though this is from over 20 years ago the message is still important today.
The moment you chose Christ you have made an enemy and will be engaged in Spiritual Warfare the rest of your days.
These are good for any Christian believers to listen too regardless of denomination. Skip is an anointed speaker and preacher of the Word of God.
While this is not a book, it is a valuable teaching on spiritual warfare needed by every believer. This is something I will listen to and study over and over because I need to be reminded - not just about the enemy we have but about the power, authority, and spiritual weapons of warfare God has given His children.
Skip Heitzig is a knowledgeable biblical teacher who substantiates what he says from Scripture in a contextual way. His anecdotes are apt, but sparse and have point in the message. He gives the believer solid tools to be used in spiritual warfare....the passages he used made so much sense that I didn't know why I never heard some of it before. Again, no airy fairy preaching here. Serious, interesting, convicting, challenging, glorifying Jesus...like I prefer my preaching. Will listen to him again. Right up there with Zachariah Poonen, John Mc Arthur, Derek Prince, Wilkinson.
There is a lot of good information in here, but it has a fatal flaw, and it is one that has crippled the Christian Churches. Skip preaches that a Christian cannot be POSSESSED by an unclean spirit (demon), and while it is true that a believer cannot be POSSESSED by a demon or Satan, a believer MOST CERTAINLY CAN BE INFLUENCED by one and that can make ones life a hell. As a Deliverance Minster, I know this is much more common than many can even imagine!!!! Demon influence is Epidemic among Christians today, and our churches are filled with believers, who truly love God, but are oppressed by Demonic influences. To listen to this a Christian is likely to be led to FALSELY believe they (believers) don't need worry much about demonic influence in their lives. THIS IS A DANGEROUS TEACHING! The truth shall set you free!!!!! IT IS PREVALENT IN OUR CHURCHES TODAY AND YES, EVEN AMONG GOD LOVING CHRISTIANS. To believe otherwise is unfortunate as itgives Satan the ability to torment believers and keep them shackled in chains of poverty, infirmity, lust, addiction, anger, shame. All of these things and more can be symptoms of demonic influence!PLEASE, research this matter more fully and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to discern what is and isn't true. Don't believe any man but pray that God give you a direct revelation on all matters. Don't think that God cannot or does not speak to you. God created us for Fellowship and HE wants to talk to His people directly. You can deny that fact, refute it, and ignore it but you cannot change it because YOU did not create yourself. The bible is meant to lead you to an experience of God (Jesus Christ) through the filling of The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps bridge the communication between God and His chosen ones (believers)I think Derek Prince is a much better authority on matters of expelling demons. See his audio, They Shall Expel Demons, here on Audible.Jesus told his disciples to go and cast out demons, cure lepers and preach the gospel. That is a direct message to believers today. Want to know what God's purpose for you is? Want to know what your ministry is?MATTHEW 10:8 (King James Bible)"Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."Skip argues that the people Jesus cast demons out of in the bible were not believers, but this is not true! Look at Peter's warning:1 Peter 5:8 -- "Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."The book of 1st Peter is a General Epistle (Apostolic Letter). It was written to ALL believers in general. Peter is cautioning believers here, NOT unbelievers, that YOU are in act susceptible, EVEN as a believer!!
Inspired me to study more on the matter and find bible passages that directly refute Skips false teachings. There are many!
DO NOT LET THIS BE YOUR INTRODUCTION TO THIS MATTER. SEARCH ELSE WHERE - THE TEACHINGS IN THIS AUDIO CAN BE DANGEROUSLY WRONG AND DETRIMENTAL. Believing what he teaches here could literally leave you tormented by demonic influences that can steal your victory and joy in Christ!
Although I was unfamiliar with this author I found this to be very scripturally based and very informative. I learned a lot about the subject. Thank you for sharing.
