Kris Vallotton wowed us with The Supernatural Ways of Royalty. He gave us hope in Heavy Rain. He taught us about purity in Moral Revolution. Now he gives us a whole new dimension of spiritual warfare in his newest book: Spirit Wars: Winning the Invisible Battle Against Sin and the Enemy.
The book was study on the battle of the mind that the enemy challenges us with everyday. I really got into it and grasped a several new ideas and revelations that helped to not only solidify some teachings, but also to impart their practice to me.
I learned the power of thoughts and how strong of a foothold I can give the enemy when I entertain thoughts that are not my own. That was one of the biggest revelations in the book for me. I would struggle with temptation-type thoughts and think, “Man, this doesn’t sound like me.” I use to think it was my sin nature coming out of me, but now I know that it was thoughts from the enemy trying to trip me up. Now, if I have any thoughts that are not my nature or, even more importantly, the nature of Christ, then I flush them out of my mind like the waste that it is. I do not even give them a second to entertain inside of my head.
Spirit Wars is a great book and I hope you put it on your reading list. I know this book will continue to impact generations.
