Scripture tells us in Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil and the heavenly realms.”
Many people claim to believe in God, in fact millions, which in fact I have no doubt that they do. Even in scripture it tells us that demons believe and tremble. However, I also believe that many of us only have a “concept” of who God is. The reality of an all powerful, all knowing, all seeing creator of all creation hasn’t quit connected or came alive within the hearts of humanity…not yet. The fact of bringing this concept 18 inches from the mind to the heart to bring forth life in the spirit is yet another act…that of faith. Not of ones self, but faith that comes from God, which brings me to another note. Created beings such as angels, demons, spiritual forces that battle against the souls of humanity. Almost sounds like a well crafted movie of good vs evil, doesn’t it? Well it’s not. It comes from the infallible word of God, and a very personal experience of mine…they exist, very real and they have different ranks in authority, and to be taken very seriously. They wage war every day in many forms against humanity and personally. Know that they have names and don’t be fooled by “depression” when in all actuality there is a spirit that lays undisclosed behind that emotion, as an example. Was is not a 3rd of heaven that fell with Satan from heaven? Where did the other spiritual forces come from? Save it for next time. So believers put on your armor every day, guard your mind which is the battlefield and may God keep you and your families sound and protected in His love that surpasses ALL understanding and as the great Apostle Paul says in Romans 8 “More Than Conquerors” ; “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who have been called according to his purpose, he foreknew, predestined, conformed, called, justified and glorified. If God is for us who can be against us? For nothing can separate us from the love God has for us through Christ Jesus our Lord.” We ARE more than conquerors in this life! May God continue to protect and bless you.
