THE IMMEASURABLE VALUE OF KNOWING
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,
[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive
into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 2 Corinthians 10:4,5
The portion of this Scripture that speaks of the true knowledge of God is referring to the Word of God. God’s Word is true knowledge of Him and His ways and character.
According to the Scriptures, Satan seeks to build strongholds in our minds. Strongholds are lies that are believed. A person who believes a lie is deceived. When an individual believes that wrong is right, he has fallen into deception. Satan works through deception, but the knowledge of the Word is the believer’s defense and victory.
No person will ever live a truly victorious life without being a sincere student of the Word of Almighty God.
