Psalm 18:39 (b) There will be a conflict in the soul of every believer between the flesh and the Spirit, between the world and GOD the Father, between Satan and the Lord JESUS. These three conflicts are continually being waged in the soul and heart of the children of GOD.
Psalm 24:8 (b) The conflict mentioned here was between the Lord JESUS and wicked men; it was also between the Saviour and Satan. It was fought on earth and CHRIST emerged victorious.
Psalm 55:18 (b) The word is used here to describe the conflict going on in David's life because his enemies sought to depose and dethrone him. It is also indicative of his fight with the atheists of his day, who decried and denied his religion and his GOD. This caused deep sorrow in David's soul.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 (b) This is a reference to any conflict taking place between those that are enemies of GOD and of the people of GOD. He is telling us that GOD gives the victory and we are not to depend upon our own wits, wisdom or resources.
1 Corinthians 14:8 (b) The word here refers primarily to the fight between nations and peoples. It is used, however, as a figure of the warfare that is constantly being waged between the church and the world or between the Christian and Satan.
