As the Apostle Paul writes his last letter to Timothy and prepares to leave this Earth for Heaven, he reminds Timothy in this last chapter of II Timothy that he needs to be ready to preach the word in season and out of season.  He warns him that people will not want to hear sound doctrine as the last days progress.  He encourages Timothy to remain strong during those times and continue on fulfilling his call to ministry.  Paul gives us some personal insight in to his own life at that time that teaches us that sometimes we too will be abandoned by friends due to or faithful stand in the Lord.

In this message Pastor Terry shares a personal testimony about a spiritual warfare attack.  Then using scripture from Ephesians, James, I Peter, and II Timothy shows how we can protect and defend ourselves against spiritual warfare attacks.  As Christians we need to be aware that we are in a spiritual battle.  The battle intensifies as we grow in our relationship and commitment to the Lord.  Therefore, we need to be faithful, strong and victorious, when wrestling through tough times of spiritual warfare.  Be the people of God!
