If you read the Bible casually, you may have read about the different wars and battles that the children of Israel waged over their oppressors, as well as neighboring nations. The weapons used in these battles were sharp and dangerous.
However, in the New Testament, the believer is instructed to wage wars in the spiritual realm, and not against flesh and blood. These spiritual battles can be done through prayer, reading God’s word, and applying what we have learned from Him. Christians are reminded to be firm and courageous, but not against physical battles.
