2 Corinthians 10:3-5

 

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

 

Why engage?

Spiritual warfare is real, it matters, and you can win, making a difference for you, your family, church, and community.

1. Before any serious study of spiritual warfare is embarked upon, we must totally understand that there is a spirit world, and that it is very active! The demons (fallen angels) are spirits. The righteous angels are spirits. The spirit world is just as real as the world we live in and coexists with our world — it’s just in a different dimension than the one we perceive daily. Just as we can’t see pain, but we know it’s real, we can’t see into the spirit world but it’s real and can be deadly. Most so-called "Christians" don’t really believe that there’s an active spirit world and that everyone is embroiled in it, regardless of their faith or beliefs. Nobody is exempt — not you, your spouse, or your children. Everyone is at risk! Constant battles are underway between the forces of good and evil.

2. Everywhere you go, in every room, vehicle, outdoors, and even in church, battles in the spirit realm are constantly occurring. They can be devastating battles. One cannot escape. You either submit or struggle, fail or fight! Unfortunately, many choose to ignore the battles hoping they’ll go away. Often they do, with evil as the victor. Our mantra has become “live and let live” or “whatever” — with devastating results. Evil runs free, destroying families, finances, health, and even our relationship with God. Ministers discuss God, Satan, angels, and demons but don’t strongly stress the powers these spirits can have on our lives and the world we live in. As the very popular Christian song says, most Christians believe “God is watching us from a distance.” God has been confined to heaven by many, even including some pastors, those called to prepare us for battle. Some fail to preach about the spiritual realm in terms easily understood and don’t stress that our battles can be won and that we can turn back every advance of the enemy. Meanwhile, Satan and the demons are actively at work in your life and the lives of everyone. Unfortunately, for the vast majority of “Christians,” no serious spiritual effort is undertaken to counter the advances of evil. And Satan, well, he just smiles! 

3. You can fight and you can win! As Oneness Apostolic believers, we have tools available that can help us in every battle. We can’t destroy Satan or the demons as they have been given the right to be here (II Corinthians 4:4). But we can win every battle! To win, we must be warriors. No one is naturally prepared for battle so we must be trained as warriors. We must be armed and engaged — armed with God’s Word and the weapons He provides, and engaged in daily spiritual battles to resist Satan’s onslaught. We can and must turn back and defeat Satan and his imps in the battles we face. We can’t do it alone. To truly be successful in warfare, we must have a well-trained army and that’s where this effort, “Armed and Engaged”, comes in. If spiritual warfare is not taught, it cannot be practiced. It’s our goal to help train and equip soldiers in God’s army for ongoing spiritual battles — battles which are winnable, battles that save marriages, destroy addictions, protect children and most importantly, save souls. So, if you’re tired of losing battle after battle and suspect that evil forces are running amuck in your life, your family, your church or even the world, plug into “Armed and Engaged” and let’s put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). Together, we can help make a huge difference and bring peace and salvation to ourselves, our families and those that God places in our paths!

About Joomla!

As with previous releases, Joomla! provides a unified and easy-to-use framework for delivering content for Web sites of all kinds. To support the changing nature of the Internet and emerging Web technologies, Joomla! required substantial restructuring of its core functionality and we also used this effort to simplify many challenges within the current user interface. Joomla! 1.5 has many new features.

Got a question? With more than 210,000 members, the Joomla! Discussion Forums at forum.joomla.org are a great resource for both new and experienced users. Ask your toughest questions the community is waiting to see what you'll do with your Joomla! site.

Do you want to show off your new Joomla! Web site? Visit the Site Showcasesection of our forum.

Do you want to contribute?

If you think working with Joomla is fun, wait until you start working on it. We're passionate about helping Joomla users become contributors. There are many ways you can help Joomla's development:

  • Submit news about Joomla. We syndicate Joomla-related news on JoomlaConnectTM. If you have Joomla news that you would like to share with the community, find out how to get connectedhere.
  • Report bugs and request features in our trackers. Please read Reporting Bugs, for details on how we like our bug reports served up
  • Submit patches for new and/or fixed behaviour. Please read Submitting Patches, for details on how to submit a patch.
  • Join the developer forums and share your ideas for how to improve Joomla. We're always open to suggestions, although we're likely to be sceptical of large-scale suggestions without some code to back it up.
  • Join any of the Joomla Working Groups and bring your personal expertise to the Joomla community.

These are just a few ways you can contribute. SeeContribute to Joomlafor many more ways.

Joomla! runs on any platform including Windows, most flavours of Linux, several Unix versions, and the Apple OS/X platform. Joomla! depends on PHP and the MySQL database to deliver dynamic content.

The minimum requirements are:

  • Apache 1.x, 2.x and higher
  • PHP 4.3 and higher
  • MySQL 3.23 and higher
It will also run on alternative server platforms such as Windows IIS - provided they support PHP and MySQL - but these require additional configuration in order for the Joomla! core package to be successful installed and operated.

Support

Support for the Joomla! CMS can be found on several places. The best place to start would be the Joomla! Official Documentation Wiki. Here you can help yourself to the information that is regularly published and updated as Joomla! develops. There is much more to come too!

Of course you should not forget the Help System of the CMS itself. On the topmenu in the Back-end Control panel you find the Help button which will provide you with lots of explanation on features.

Another great place would of course be the Forum . On the Joomla! Forum you can find help and support from Community members as well as from Joomla! Core members and Working Group members. The forum contains a lot of information, FAQ's, just about anything you are looking for in terms of support.

Two other resources for Support are the Joomla! Developer Site and the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED). The Joomla! Developer Site provides lots of technical information for the experienced Developer as well as those new to Joomla! and development work in general. The JED whilst not a support site in the strictest sense has many of the Extensions that you will need as you develop your own Web site.

The Joomla! Developers and Bug Squad members are regularly posting their blog reports about several topics such as programming techniques and security issues.

Documentation

Joomla! Documentation can of course be found on the Joomla! Official Documentation Wiki. You can find information for beginners, installation, upgrade, Frequently Asked Questions, developer topics, and a lot more. The Documentation Team helps oversee the wiki but you are invited to contribute content, as well.

There are also books written about Joomla! You can find a listing of these books in the Joomla! Shop.

If you're new to Web publishing systems, you'll find that Joomla! delivers sophisticated solutions to your online needs. It can deliver a robust enterprise-level Web site, empowered by endless extensibility for your bespoke publishing needs. Moreover, it is often the system of choice for small business or home users who want a professional looking site that's simple to deploy and use. We do content right.

So what's the catch? How much does this system cost?

Well, there's good news ... and more good news! Joomla! 1.5 is free, it is released under an Open Source license - the GNU/General Public License v 2.0. Had you invested in a mainstream, commercial alternative, there'd be nothing but moths left in your wallet and to add new functionality would probably mean taking out a second mortgage each time you wanted something adding!

Joomla! changes all that ...
Joomla! is different from the normal models for content management software. For a start, it's not complicated. Joomla! has been developed for everybody, and anybody can develop it further. It is designed to work (primarily) with other Open Source, free, software such as PHP, MySQL, and Apache.

It is easy to install and administer, and is reliable.

Joomla! doesn't even require the user or administrator of the system to know HTML to operate it once it's up and running.

To get the perfect Web site with all the functionality that you require for your particular application may take additional time and effort, but with the Joomla! Community support that is available and the many Third Party Developers actively creating and releasing new Extensions for the 1.5 platform on an almost daily basis, there is likely to be something out there to meet your needs. Or you could develop your own Extensions and make these available to the rest of the community.
