War, Declared and Undeclared

In a dream vision the Holy Spirit presented to me the text of a good-sized paragraph at least eight to ten sentences long. Something unusual about the lettering of the words of the paragraph caught my eye. Scattered throughout the entire text were three letters in succession—“war”—in bold. I could not read the entire text of the paragraph or even any individual word but the bolded letters spelling “war.” This word “war” appeared as its own word, but quite often it was embedded in other larger words that included this three-letter sequence. Examples of such embedded words would include “beware,” “warning,” “coward,” “forewarning,” and “skyward.” These were not the exact words I saw because the Holy Spirit would not let me read the entire words and sentences, only the bolded word “war” within the words and sentences.
When I awoke, and in the time since, I have asked the Holy Spirit to reveal the meanings of this vision. Not only does the vision warn of war in the literal sense—as in civil war and world war, and conventional war and nuclear war—but it warns of war hidden or embedded in apparently non-warlike activities. War can be undertaken indirectly and surreptitiously through regime change, restricted freedoms, currency wars, changes in banking regulations, control of ports and sea lanes, economic sanctions, assaults on biological life forms and their DNA, misuse of technology, and the destruction of human souls. Because Christians, and humans in general, are in a situation of war—declared and undeclared—this circumstance requires us to armor up, first and foremost through prayer and the Word of God. We must decide whom we serve and ultimately which spiritual army we will join. Whether we expected it or not, whether we wanted it or not, we are drafted as spiritual soldiers on one side or another of a greater war for human souls.
John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Daniel 7:21-22 (KJV)
I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Ephesians 6:10-17 (KJV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
