Who is a Spiritual Sniper?

As Donna Pyle puts it in her Bible Study called, Your Strong Suit, spiritual warfare NEVER ceases! She goes on to say, “Living for Jesus in this present darkness is not waltzing through a meadow picking daisies. It is stumbling through enemy territory surrounded by snipers”.

Living in such a fallen world as we do it is becoming all the more evident that WE as Christians must stay on guard to the schemes of the enemy. Satan came for one reason….to kill, steel and destroy!

I want you to think with me for just a minute. What is a sniper? What does he do? A sniper has been in training. A sniper knows his target. A sniper scouts out his enemy. A sniper hides where no one can see him. A sniper makes himself look less visible to others by wearing a mask. A sniper locates his target, aims carefully and shoots. A sniper uses a distinct, high precision rifle and is a very sharp shooter.



The Sniper and Satan have a lot in common don’t they? Satan finds no mercy in no one. Satan wants our testimonies and will do whatever he must do to bring us down. We must be on guard daily. He wants our marriages. He wants our children. He wants our testimonies for Christ and he wants us out of the way.

He will whisper….you don’t love him anymore! He will say, “walk out on your children, someone else can raise them better. He will tell you lies such as, “you don’t need to attend church or be a part of a body of believers, you can be a good Christian and sit at home”. He will appear to you like a bright diamond waiting for your touch.

Oh my sweet friends, may we ever stay alert to the schemes of the evil one. Only by God’s grace and mercy can we call on the Name of Jesus…

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. Eph. 6:10-11 (ESV)

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. I have been doing the midnight prayers for 6 months now. And I will continue to pray with trust that God gives me a breakthrough for the promotion for 15 years still no promotion or change of grade or raise in my job. I have never been promoted, even though I am highly experienced, I am diligent and trustworthy. But this time I know God will open BIG doors for me, so please pray with me on this. My daughter SJR who appeared for her final masters exams that she finds favors in the eyes of the examiners and passes with merits and gets a good job with God fearing boss and staff and she gets a good salary.That my friend knows the truth whether I was cheating, lying or harming him in any way. That I can pay all my loans which i have up till my neck line.

    And also MF and ES who are involved in bl magic and witchcraft that their powers dont work on my family and us. They plan to make us mad, destroy my marriage, curse on my fly and their plans are evil and wicked
    And also its my birthday this month. Please keep my fly in prayers so that find a way to the Lord.
