Your Complete guide to Spiritual Warfare
When I began reading "Demons & Spiritual Warfare", my first thought was "sheesh, Ron Phillips is smart!" Then the next thought was, "every single Christian needs to read this!" This book is chock full of information, details, and wisdom. I am reading it for the second time and have already began finding details that I didn't ingest the first go round. I have a feeling if I read it a third time, the same thing would happen again.
Ron Phillips has brought to light many details that have been misunderstood by the greater majority of Christians concerning who Satan is, the fall of Satan and his followers, and the consequential effect on this earth. Satan does not live in hell at the moment, he is ruling on this earth seeking those who he can take to hell with him. His fall caused a cataclysmic destruction of earth. God has since recreated earth and placed man here to have dominion. Satan, as the serpent, took that dominion away from man through the fall of Adam and Eve. Now man has to retake back everything Satan has stolen. The good news is that the victory has already been won; we just have to enforce it.
The battle between good and evil was settled on the cross. Satan lost! Jesus made a public show of Satan and his followers. But until the judgment, Satan is going about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. To put it lightly, Satan was not a good loser. He is determined to steal as many of God's creations, man, as he can. He vows to take as many of God's children to hell as he can as payback for his defeat. Satan was not pleased that God created man and has given man the opportunity to rule and reign with Christ. When we make the decision to be followers of Christ, we become joint-heirs and we sit with Him in the heavenlies. That places us above the prince and principalities of the air, making Satan our footstool. He is beneath our feet!
We, as Christian, have to take the authority given to us by God Himself and enforce the victory against the enemy. We have all power and authority needed to do just that. We just have to walk in it and exercise it. Satan doesn't want us to know that he is already defeated. He wants us to bow and cower in fear to him and his demonic spirits that attempt to derail us everyday. Ron Phillips has done an excellent job explaining the power and tools available to us as King's Kids. He has step by step instructions on recognizing and defeating the enemy daily. He has listed the weapons the enemy uses to distract, oppress, and ultimately destroy believers. We must be wise and recognize Satan for what he is - a usurper and trespasser on God's earth. We must remember to focus on Christ and not on the power of the enemy. "Strong man that he is, he has been dispossessed by one stronger! Satan and the forces of hell are on a short leash since Calvary. We are not fighting for victory but rather from victory. The bottom line of spiritual warfare is applying and enforcing the victory of the cross and upon the enemy." We must remember "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8) "The scripture teaches us that Satan has been stripped of his right, power, and authority over all those who have bowed at the foot of the cross and received the precious blood of Christ as atonement for their sin." The blood left Satan powerless. We must understand and operate from that knowledge.

A guide to defeating evil spirits in your life
One of the best spiritual warfare books I have read. It is imminently readable especially for the beginner. It does not read like a text book but rather a guide to learning how to help intercede in the battle against satan and his minions in our everyday life. North America is one of the places where demonic spirits are not really a part of basic beliefs, they are treated like cartoon characters instead of the very powerful ex-angles that they in reality are. We need to be more careful of how we guard ourselves and our minds. This book is an excellent guide at helping to define the areas where evil spirits like to insinuate themselves and take up residence, it also has an effective battle plan to defeat them and then prevent them from coming back to reclaim their home and bring along friends. Definitely a must a read.
