Inner Conflict - Lesson 1 - Conflict, Not A Strange Thing
SATAN SEEKS TO DISRUPT
Because of this condition, Satan seeks to cause disruption within. Working through the Adamic, or natural part of us, he instigates distracting thoughts and imaginations. These are called "fiery darts," or "flaming arrows," in Scripture (Eph. 6:17). They are called "fiery" because they excite the fleshly nature, inflaming it and causing spiritual infection. They are called "darts" because they are often piercing and painful. They are an intrusion into the minds of the saved. These are "imaginations" and "thoughts" that are to be cast down by believers. They are not an expression of the primary person, but are a Satanic attempt to drag us from the holy place. Misinterpreted, they will lead to captivity and spiritual bondage. Duly checked, their presence will confirm ones sonship.
