We have all been attacked by the enemy before. Whether it was physically or mentally, it affects us in some negative way. Without God, it's like going into battle without armor. The Bible and the helmet of salvation can be our best defense against our enemies.
Evil comes in many shapes and forms, and in the Bible the Apostle John warned us to not believe every spirit we hear because they may be evil. The more we read the Bible the more we can discern the truth from error. It would be easier if we could see the foe all the time, but unfortunately we cannot. We must test or try the spirits to see if they are truly of God. Easier said than done, but it is always good to be aware.
Below are 7 Bible verses to help overcome attacks from the enemy: more >>

The World Evangelical Alliance Chairman of the Global Task Force on Nuclear Weapons has personally come out in defense of the widely debated U.S.-Iran nuclear deal, and criticized what he called "outrageous" and "irresponsible" remarks from politicians such as Mike Huckabee, who compared the deal to the Holocaust, and Michele Bachmann, who said it might bring about the End Times.
In a phone interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday, Tyler Wigg-Stevenson, who is also founder and director of The Two Futures Project, a network of American Christians urging the abolition of nuclear weapons, emphasized that the WEA does not have an official position on the deal, but shared in his own view that he believes the deal will indeed make the world a safer place.
"I think that the Iran deal, as it is negotiated, will make the world a better place. Assuming that Iran does want a nuclear weapon, then the deal makes getting one much harder for the foreseeable future, and also it imposes measures that are ensured to catch any attempt at cheating," Wigg-Stevenson told CP. more >>
