Practical Spiritual Warfare
Lesson One

Welcome to the first lesson in Practical Spiritual Warfare.  God loves you.  He wants you to be prepared, but He does not want you to walk in fear or ignorance.  There is a lot of misinformation which appeals to the flesh through sensationalism surrounding this topic.  You will be led step by step through a solid Biblical understanding of this war.  You will learn who is responsible for doing what.  You will learn your role in this conflict.  Most of all, you will learn that It's God's War.

You MUST have the textbook, It's God's War by Rev. Judson Cornwall, to do this course.  If you do not have it yet, you can purchase it through the link on the textbook page here.  

For Lesson One read the following sections in your Textbook and do the questions below.  The questions are in chronological order.
