Breaking strongholds. Illustration is Song of Solomon (Son 2:15) "catch the foxes that spoil the vines". The anology is to her shepherd lover. We need to develop the will to win (2CO 10:1-6). Corinthians have adopted false teachings. Our weapons are spiritual (EPH 6:12, ROM 6:13, ROM 13:12). Weapons are for (1) Pulling down strongholds (2CO 10:4); (2) Casting down arguments (2CO 4:5); (3) Bringing everything into captivity of Christ (2CO 4:5). The lie of this world is that we can make ourselves acceptable, are self sufficient, or that we can improve ourselves. This is a cooperative action of spiritual surrender to the Spirit and Word of God. We must be ready to fight (2CO 10:6, 1CO 1:14). Edification is "other-oriented" thinking. We must "avenge disobedience". Joshua meets the "captain of army of the Lord", an falls on his face (JOS 5:13-15). The children of Israel were part of the Lord's army. Joshua had to make a decision. We too must chose who we will serve (JOS 24:15).  Joshua gets commands similar to before (JOS 6:1-5, DEU 7:1-6). Joshua cut the land in two and comes back to Gath, Gaza, Ashdod and some of the giants were left (JOS 11:22). Once obedience was established, Joshua let none of the enemies remain (JOS 10:22, JOS 10:30, JOS 10:37, JOS 10:39-40, JOS 11:8, JOS 11:12). God promises to defeat the enemy (JOS 13:1-6). The people didn't execute the plan completely (JOS 13:13, JOS 17:12-13, JOS 18:3). At the age of 85, Caleb asked for the privilege of taking the hardest enemy (JOS 14:1-15). Though Paul taught them differently, Corinthians compromised with the enemy by accepting Greek philosophies of stoicism, asceticism, epicureanism (1CO 6:12-20, ACT 17:18, 1CO 7:1)
