50 Important Bible Verses About War KJV

In this post, we will be sharing with you some important bible verses about war. War is something that has been with us since the beginning of time, and it is something that will continue to be with us until the end of time. The bible has a lot to say about war, and we need to understand what it has to say.

We need to understand that war is not something that is of God. War is something that is a result of the fallen state of man. In the book of James, it says, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight.”

This is telling us that war is a result of our own sinful desires. We desire things that we cannot have, and so we fight and quarrel with others in order to get them.

God’s desire is for us to live in peace with one another. In the book of Isaiah, it says, “He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”

This is telling us that God’s desire is for us to live in peace with one another. He does not want us to fight and kill one another.

War In Heaven

The bible also tells us about a war that took place in heaven. In the book of Revelation, it says, “There was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.”

Satan and his angels were cast out of heaven because of their war against God. This is why we need to be careful about getting involved in wars. We need to make sure that we are fighting for the right reasons, and not for our own selfish desires.

No More Wars

The bible also tells us that there will be a time when there will be no more war. In the book of Revelation, it says, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

This is telling us that there will be a time when there will be no more war as part of God’s end-time plan for those who believe in him and this is something we all should be looking forward to.

War Against Sin

We fight a spiritual battle every day against sin. We know that our flesh wages war against our spirit, and we need to be on guard against this. In the book of Ephesians, it says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

This is telling us that our real battle is not against other people but against the spiritual forces of evil. We need to be on constant guard against all spiritual forces of evil through prayer.
