Sun Tzu’s Art of War - Attack by Stratagem

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.

Li Ch`uan cites the case of Fu Chien, prince of Ch`in, who in 383 A.D. marched with a vast army against the Chin Emperor. When warned not to despise an enemy who could command the services of such men as Hsieh An and Huan Ch`ung, he boastfully replied: "I have the population of eight provinces at my back, infantry and horsemen to the number of one million; why, they could dam up the Yangtsze River itself by merely throwing their whips into the stream. What danger have I to fear?" Nevertheless, his forces were soon after disastrously routed at the Fei River, and he was obliged to beat a hasty retreat.

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Chang Yu said: "Knowing the enemy enables you to take the offensive, knowing yourself enables you to stand on the defensive." He adds: "Attack is the secret of defense; defense is the planning of an attack." It would be hard to find a better epitome of the root-principle of war.

In the post GETTING PREPARED – WHAT IS THE ROLE WE PLAY, we stated that the battle for planet earth is a battle of good vs evil and the only thing standing in the middle is us. We either accept our roles in this war or we allow it to happen! This is absolutely true. We are God’s soldiers for truth, justice and righteousness. If we do not engage in the war, then we will be part of the problem.

In the Post OUR SPIRITUAL WAR, we stated that while this battle has been on-going since creation, it has come to time when God has said enough and is leading the charge into battle for all of humanity. In order for us to fight this spiritual war, we need to become spiritual warriors. Just like soldiers fighting in combat with their weapons, we need to be soldiers in God’s army doing the same. For years, many have prayed for our country and the world. We asked God to save us from all this evil. He finally came to our rescue. but He needs an army. Some of this army will be soldiers armed for combat, some would be soldiers to confront evil using the sword (Word) of God and others would be the supply team feeding those that are on the front lines fighting the war. Combat soldiers are supplied by the God fearing patriots in our government and directed by our government as to the battles they must fight. Those soldiers on the frontline confronting evil are fighting in our local communities – our civic government, our schools, our churches and, in some cases, family.

In the post THE WAR OF THE MIND, we addressed what we see today is no different from our historical past. People are planted throughout our main-stream-media (MSM) with the agenda from the elite. Instead of allowing the election process to play out legally, the elites are using the MSM to sway our minds of their end fact results instead of what is legally provided. They are complicit of the fraud on the American people.

In the post WHO REALLY CONTROLS THIS WORLD – THE STRUCTURE, we provided the enemy structure. Before we set forth and move to understand the details of each level of the enemy structure we need to prepare ourselves for battle. The battle we must face will be fought on multiple fronts with various soldiers and using various warfare strategies and tactics.

But before we can get engaged in any battle, we first must deal with the battle for our soul. You see in order for you to get engaged in the war and start fighting the enemy you must first conquer yourself – the thing which controls your every thought, your every action, your every utterance of words – your mind. You cannot go into battle without you having dealt with the difficult battle in this war – your beliefs, your programming and the truth.

We labeled this post YOUR WORLD AT WAR – KNOW YOUR ENEMY because you must know your inner world war in order to deal with the outer world war. You must know your enemy and that enemy my friends is yourself!
