Life is full of battles and struggles. How should one deal with such obstacles? The Spiritual Art of War discusses different strategies and principles that help Christians in gaining victory in life.
One of the principles is “stand back and watch the fires burn”. The strategy: Allow discord in your adversary’s camp to reduce that adversary from within. Why: a discord in your adversary’s camp may deliver a result that benefits you without you even having to participate. You are essentially sitting back and letting your adversary destroy himself.
There is something about this that may, to you, seem counterintuitive, because it’s already been advised that you attack your adversary at his weakest; wouldn’t it make sense to attack your adversary when there’s a (literal or figurative) fire in his camp?
Here’s the thing: a fire in your enemy’s camp is a crisis, not always a weakness or point of vulnerability. A crisis is anything that threatens to tear your enemy apart from within. This could be a crisis in the leadership, or with market share, or anything—but if it involves any kind of conflict within the leadership, or a conflict of interest over how to handle the crisis, your attack could enable warring factions to set aside their differences, be reconciled to each other and band forces to fight you. So if you attack at the wrong time, you might actually resolve the crisis for your adversary. Sun Tzu has this advice for attacking with fire: “When fire breaks out inside an enemy’s camp, respond at once with an attack from outside”

Throughout history, emperors, kings, and generals have won and lost empires on the battlefield. These were men who lived by the rules of war, the art of strategy, and either won great victories or suffered terrible defeats based on how well they applied them. About 2,500 years ago, the ancient Chinese military philosopher and general Sun Tzu wrote down his observations and theories in a treatise called The Art of War. As we’ll discover, Sun Tzu’s ideas have a lot in common with the kingdom vision of prophetic warfare!
Have you been struggling with the battles of life? Do you feel like you’ve been losing a lot of wars lately? How does one attain victory, and remain victorious? What are the secrets to winning in life?
You will learn that God is a God of war and a God of victory, a God who gives His people endless gifts in life. As we will see, all God asks in return is our faith and trust in Him: He wants us to plant the seeds of faith, through tithing, as a gesture of our devotion to Him. The more we give back to God to contribute to His kingdom, the more we will be blessed in return. It’s a wonderful virtuous cycle, like a credit card with no limits and no late fees!

New York is known to be the city that never sleeps. Why is it called that? It’s because businesses run day and day out. In business, once you sleep, you lose a lot of money. This is true most especially if you’re just starting your own business. You can’t sleep. Because when you sleep that’s when you are most vulnerable.
Sun Tzu said, “A soldier’s spirit is keenest in the morning; by noonday it begins to flag; and in the evening, his mind is bent only on returning to camp”. So, what is the strategically minded general to do? Sun Tzu spells this one out: “A clever general, therefore, avoids an army when its spirit is keen, but attacks it when it is sluggish and inclined to return to camp”. Catch your enemy sleeping, and you can dictate the terms of the engagement because you will be the only one of the two of you who is prepared for it.
How will you catch your adversary sleeping? Be creative and think outside the box. You may have to be the one to put him to sleep by making him think you don’t pose a threat. Your advantage will come from your adversary’s complacency. He must truly believe that he holds the upper hand in the game, if he even recognizes it as a “game” at all. A complacent, sleeping adversary has defeated himself already.
The Spiritual Art of War will teach you more about the strategies of winning in your business and getting rid of your enemies. Achieve victory in your business and in your life. Click here to learn more about the Spiritual Art of War, which was inspired by Sun Tzu’s “Art of War”.
Victory is all about strategy. When winners win, the way that they get to be victorious matters. Leaders, warriors, kings and the likes have different ways to win, but God has his own ways as well. And we all know that God’s ways are always the best ways to go. Because God is a God of victory and He is also a God of war. In the book, “Spiritual Art of War”, Bishop Jordan writes about different strategies in order for you to get what you want, because you deserve it.
One of the many strategies taught in the book is to cripple the capacity of your adversary’s leaders to assert their influence. Why: a loss of leadership pushes your adversary toward disorganization and defeat. The central idea here is that if you cut off the head, the body will die. And not surprisingly, we find this concept in the Scripture’s account of kingdom warfare. In Zechariah 13:7, we read, “‘Strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered…’”(Zechariah 13:7b).The sheep without their shepherd are lost; they can’t take care of themselves, and they’re easy prey for wolves, lions, and bears.
In business there are many forces that can affect your company’s performance and how successful you are at capturing and holding market share vis-à-vis your competitors. But ultimately, all of the major decisions an organization is required to make are made by a centralized leadership comprising one or more people. How might you go about incapacitating such a leadership?

Life is a battlefield: you have individuals and organizations competing for the same resources, and often that competition turns ugly. If you want to get ahead, you’re going to have to overcome obstacles, or find ways around them.
As believers, we know that behind this struggle there is another, much deeper, and ultimate struggle: as it is written in the Scripture, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). But how to we fight against these things? What are the things that we need in order to win the battles life throws at us?
The Spiritual Art of War reveals a variety of strategies in order for you to win your battles for the Lord. God is a God of victory and as long as you have Him by your side, you are surely going to win. There are many dark things that surround you; it may manifest itself in your co-workers, bosses, or business partner. You need to learn how to identify these threats and fight against it. Are you ready to get on the battlefield?
