Scriptures used:

Luk 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

Luk 2:47  And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

Mat 4:1  Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

2Co 10:4  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Eph 6:12  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.

Eph 6:17-18  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  (18)  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Joh 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Mat 4:6  And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

  1. good stuff Conrad!

    a cool thing to note here: the "sword of Spirit" as referred to in Eph (and also when Christ is tempted) is the word "rhema" from greek.

    "rhema" is a short, complete and powerful statement from the Word of God - likened to a dagger rather than a long sword - and it is used for hand to hand combat (close encounters with satan). Rhema is what Jesus used to fight satan in the wilderness.

    the other word used for the "sword of the Spirit" is "logos" - this is the entirety of scripture,--- the long sword --- and it's reserved for judgement. it is referred to almost exclusively in the Bible for the use of Jesus Himself.

    satan can quote the Bible but he is known as the "scripture twister". he also stops short of an entire statement making it not quite "rhema".

    hope this adds to the great info you've offered here! :)
    God bless you,
