THE REAL BATTLE



Just as there are wars fought in the natural realm, there are battles in the spiritual realm. As natural warfare is understood with a natural mind, so spiritual warfare must be understood with a spiritual mind.


Many of us consider the battle in the spiritual realm to be a battle of God against Satan. But God has no enemies that pose a threat to Him. He is stronger than anyone or anything that opposes Him. The real battle in the spiritual world is between those who have submitted to God and those who are in rebellion against Him. Simply put, the battle is between submission and rebellion.


Mankind is not a pawn in a giant cosmic chess game. God has given us the ability to choose, and in our choosing we have repeatedly rebelled against God. The question every person must answer is whether or not they will be restored in relationship to God and learn to live in His Kingdom.

Your major battles in life are not against people and are never visible. They are against invisible spiritual powers of evil:


For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)


In this verse we can identify at least four ranks of spiritual forces that battle against believers:

-Principalities: Territorial demonic forces. -Powers: Spirits that establish spiritual strongholds and keep people in bondage. -Rulers of darkness of this age: Demonic forces operating through evil leaders. -Spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places: Forces that foster false religious

systems and heretical teachings.


No one is exempt from this battle. All believers are engaged in this struggle. No one can view it from a distance. There is no neutral ground. You are in the midst of this conflict whether you acknowledge it or not.


Every day you enter this battlefield as you go to your place of employment, your business, or your school. Through what you are learning, you will be able to analyze this very real battle and understand its spiritual ramifications.


PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
