Good Morning World! Beat the devil not people. The Word of God is a weapon, but not against people. It is a spiritual weapon to be stored in our hearts & spoken aloud so that we might overcome the power of darkness. The Spirit of God does the drawing & the driving when the Word is rightly divided. He doesn't need commentary from us except to show love & kindness. Beating people? See the darkness. Have a great day!
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 2 Corinthians 10:4
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 6:12
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Romans 12:10
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Jeremiah 31:3
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32
It's not necessary to step on others, just lift Jesus. He'll do the rest. Ava Gabrielle
