Spiritual Warfare

What if you could actually see angels and fallen angels engaging in battle—and you were expected to join the fight?
It’s been one year since Jonah Stone and his sister, Eliza, discovered that their mother is a nephilim, the product of a union between a human and a fallen angel, which makes them and their little brother, Jeremiah, quarterlings, or one-quarter angel. After embarking on an epic journey to rescue their mother and the other nephilim, who were kidnapped by fallen angels, the Stone kids have enjoyed a little peace and quiet.
But when Jonah and Eliza are attacked by fallen angels at school, they learn that quarterlings all over the world are being targeted, and separating them from their parents is the only way to keep them safe. The kids undergo special training to help them discover their own unique angelic gifts, which come in handy when they embark on a mission to find a mysterious prophet who they believe holds the key to Abaddon's defeat in a massive battle between good and evil.

Parents today are looking for fiction that makes Christianity and the Bible exciting for their kids. This series is the first Christian answer to Percy Jackson and the Olympiansand other middle grade series packed with adventure, action, and supernatural fights. But the message is solidly scriptural in that God alone is always in control.

 I have recently noticed that I was under spiritual warfare with the devil and my heart. Even though I am at a Christian university, I have still found myself struggling to be like God everyday. I found that I was fighting a losing battle by myself and arming myself not with the armor that God gave me, but other things that I thought was right and Christian.

Even though I have been at this school for 4 1/2 years, I have come to realize that a Christian school also has its pros and cons. The pros are of course the wonderful classes in which professors will pray for the students at the start of each day, but the cons is that each group is trying to reach the same people and by doing that, is splitting the student body into cliches, instead of really reaching them with the gospel of Christ.

Many things that I have experienced would probably happen to me in s public school, but because a fellow brother and sister in Christ did it to me, I feel more hurt than if a nonChristian did it to me. Because I have started to put on the armor of God, I feel as though God is equipping me to face these trials that have come up against me.
