Nothing Can Stop You When You Put On
The Armor of Light!

If you are like me, you want to finish the work God gave you to do. And it's not always easy, but I have good news.

  • When Jesus lives in your heart, you have the power to break every barrier that keeps you from doing the Lord’s will.
  • Christ’s victorious Spirit equips you to overcome every challenge you face.
  • I can’t wait to encourage and assist you in this process, but first let me tell you my story.

Hi, I'm Michael Christian. As a disciple of Jesus Christ, a pastor, and an author, I desire 
to see you move forward unhindered in becoming the person God called you to be, 
that He may be glorified through you, and the Lord's church may grow.

When I First Accepted Jesus,
I Was Unprepared for What Came Next…

When I became a Christian, I just wanted my sins to be forgiven and to go to heaven when I died. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, believing I would never have another bad day. LOL! Was I naive!

Within a few months, my slow-to-grasp-spiritual-things mind concluded that saying Yes to Jesus had painted a spiritual target on my back.

A spiritual enemy was attacking me I had never believed in, couldn't see, and knew nothing about. Thrust into conflict without warning or preparation, I had no training, no weapons (that I was aware of), and little success.

I recently had graduated from college and thought I had it all together. But to my dismay, I discovered I was Biblically illiterate, and my spiritual ignorance qualified me for kindergarten in God's school. So far as understanding the spiritual realities I faced daily, my college studies were irrelevant. 

As a result, I had to humble myself, admit my ignorance, and start “school” again in this new frontier of biblical wisdom.

As a young Christian, I was like those in the Parable of the Sower who received the good seed on stony ground (Matthew 13:5, 20-21). 

My new life sprang up with joy, but the heat of misunderstanding and trouble tried  to wither me before I became grounded and established.

It was hard for my roots in Christ to penetrate the stony places of brokenness, pain, and self-centeredness in my heart. 

I had to fight for my spiritual life, and I am thankful to those who prayed for and mentored me in those challenging early days.

I Even Got Mad at God!

When I accepted Christ as Savior, I perceived vaguely that a spiritual realm surrounded me, but I knew little about it.

But shortly after accepting Christ, evil began attacking my mind in a way I had never experienced. Thoughts constantly popped into my mind, reminding me of past sins and making me feel ashamed and unworthy of God's mercy and grace. I was not happy about this, and I started questioning the Lord.

Why had He made things this way? Why was there evil? Why was there an adversary? Why was I being attacked for doing the right thing for once?

I actually wondered if I was a “sacrificial pawn” in some cruel, cosmic chess match between God and the devil! (Later, I realized Jesus alone was the sacrifice.)

Fortunately, the Word of God was a light to my path, so I read the Word morning and evening, getting up-to-speed on spiritual truth. 

I was so desperate to know what was going on that I asked dozens of questions about God, spiritual things, and the Bible. 

Maybe You Can Relate to My Story

I looked for a resource to help me understand what was happening, but all I could
lay hands on was a Bible (much of which I did not grasp) and a Strong's Concordance.

But I wished for a Bible-based book that explained spiritual realities in a clear and understandable way, so I could train myself more quickly to understand God's Word.

You, too, have probably discerned that more goes on spiritually than meets the eye.
You also want solid, scriptural information that uplifts Christ and shows you how
to fight the good fight of faith. So, if that's you, I encourage you to keep reading.

I Prayed for God to Make Me
Wiser than My Spiritual Enemy

I was serious about overcoming the resistance I felt. I did not want to be a doormat for something I couldn't see. The Spirit of God was a big help, for He stirred in me the desire to put these things under my feet. I was willing, if only I knew how.

As if all this weren't enough, I was knocked unconscious in an accident on an oil rig where I was temporarily working. 

The blow to my head caused a severe concussion. As part of the healing process for my now “foggy” brain, the Lord called me to do something unusual. I began hand copying Scripture four hours a day. 

It did not take long for the brain fog to lift, although the headaches and sensitivity to noise lasted longer. But I received such deep peace while copying out the Bible that I didn't want to stop as I became better.

So, during the next twenty years, I spent over 10,000 hours hand copying verses from the Bible on many topics. I looked up the Bible's words in the original languages. 

In addition, I kept reading the Bible through every year and prayerfully sought the answers to all my questions.

By clicking the following links, you can read about the accident that came within inches of killing me, and what I later discovered—that God commanded all the kings of Israel to hand copy Scripture. 

But I'm not trying to get you to copy Scriptures for twenty years (unless you're led to). But I do want to offer you what it produced.

After Years of Prayer and Study, I Gained
Some Simple and Practical Wisdom

I learned the answers to the questions I asked as an overwhelmed young Christian, which I want to share with you.

God destined us to be overcomers.

As our role model, Jesus encountered much opposition. But He took charge of His destiny and fought back, winning a complete victory on the cross over everything darkness had arrayed against Him.

His victorious Spirit now lives in your heart and fights through you. 

But suppose Jesus had given up. Suppose He had said, “This is too hard. These people don't like me, so I'm going to quit and go back to heaven.”

I don't even want to imagine where my life would be without the Savior, so I'm thankful He toughed it out to the end. And you and I can fight to the end because of His same Spirit who lives in us.

God has an amazing plan for your life that only you can fulfill. Your contribution to the body of Christ is unique and nobody else can make it. It doesn't matter whether you have a neighbor-to-neighbor ministry or a pulpit ministry. 

The Lord has foreseen you doing things you don't think you can do. But you can do them with His help if you don't allow the resistance to stop you.

The Lord Has a “Promised Land” for You to Take!

Fear of the giants made the children of Israel afraid to possess the promised land flowing with milk and honey. Likewise, opposition may stand between you and the promised land of destiny God has shown you. Fear will keep you living in a spiritual desert, if it can.

But you don't have to perish in the wilderness for fear of the “giants” because God wants to equip you to go in and possess your land!

Imagine what it will feel like when you are doing what God designed you perfectly to do. You'll taste peace and a deep sense of purpose, knowing you have found your unique place in the body of Christ. 

I Want to Assist You in Achieving Your Kingdom Dream!

And Here’s How I Can Encourage You:
By Helping You Put On…
THE ARMOR OF LIGHT!

I just finished writing the book that I desired as a young Christian. What took me years to discover, I have compressed into one volume. 

God has deposited nuggets of truth on spiritual warfare from Genesis to Revelation. But in The Armor of Light, I extract and condense that wisdom into one place. Each chapter focuses on a key to your strength and strategy.

Though the book addresses the spiritual conflict that makes some people uncomfortable, I want to make one thing clear: the most effective spiritual warfare is always Christ-centered, not devil-focused.

Our loving Savior taught more about God's enemy than any other religious figure. Why? Because we need to know what we face, so we can fight and break free from it.

It's important to follow His lead. We must not deny the existence of an adversary or pretend we don't have to contend with him just because the subject makes us uneasy.

But another thing is also clear—Jesus mostly talked about the kingdom of God. And I think His is the wisdom we should follow.
