being free of the spirit of war


 2 Corinthians 3:17

King James Version

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.


How to be free from the spirit that induces the lust for wars?

In CHRIST is liberty.

In SPIRIT is liberty.

In Scripture is liberty.

These verses tell us more:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, believe also in me.


Galatians 5:16-26

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, 

ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, 

which are these; 

Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, 

emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, 

revellings, and such like: 

of the which I tell you before, 

as I have also told you in time past, 

that they which do such things 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit 

is love, joy, peace, 

longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: 

against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh 

with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, 

let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, 

provoking one another, 

envying one another.


Ephesians 2:1-10

King James Version

2 And you hath he quickened, 

who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2 Wherein in time past 

ye walked according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air, 

the spirit that now worketh 

in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation 

in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 

fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; 

and were by nature the children of wrath, 

even as others.

4 But God, 

who is rich in mercy, 

for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, 

hath quickened us together with Christ, 

(by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, 

and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

7 That in the ages to come 

he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace 

in his kindness toward us 

through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, 

created in Christ Jesus unto good works, 

which God hath before ordained 

that we should walk in them.


James 4:7

King James Version

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.


James 4:8

King James Version

8 Draw nigh to God, 

and he will draw nigh to you. 

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; 

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.


James 4:9

King James Version

9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: 

let your laughter be turned to mourning, 

and your joy to heaviness.


James 4:10

King James Version

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, 

and he shall lift you up.


James 4:11-12

King James Version

11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. 

He that speaketh evil of his brother, 

and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, 

and judgeth the law: 

but if thou judge the law, 

thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

12 There is one lawgiver, 

who is able to save and to destroy: 

who art thou that judgest another?


In GOD is peace.
