We do not war according to the flesh! 2 Cor 10:1-5.
We love and kill the enemy by letting him kill us. Heb 2:14. We trample on him by letting him trample on us. Isaiah 63:1-6; Rev 19:13, 15; 14:19, 20. We are angry and violent against the enemy by loving, absorbing, without retaliation, his anger and violence against us!
We judge the enemy by letting him judge us. John 12:31, 44-50.
We strip and spoil the enemy of his goods by letting him strip and spoil us. Col 2:14-15.
The cross is our divine counter-intuitive weapon. The cross reverses the enemy’s wrath back on his own head. Ps 9:15-16; Rom 12:17-21. There is power in the cross against the enemy. 1 Cor 1:17-19, 23-24. We “resist not evil,” absorb his blows and thereby defeat him. Matt 5:38-48. Our weapon is to love and absorb, not perpetrate, blows. Absorbing extinguishes the blows and the smiter of blows. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet 4:8.
We destroy the enemy daily by taking up the cross daily. Eph 6:12.
