SPIRITUAL WARFARE – Fighting The Invisible Enemy (Part 1)

There are many times we are confronted with the challenges of life and are left trying to understand or “make sense” of what just happened.   At times life will throw unexpected curve balls that can destabilize us and leave us in a state of confusion or disbelief.  Is it just the proverbial “life” that we are facing or is there something greater at work behind the scenes that is affecting our every day existence?

For years, the spirit of God has spoken to me concerning the reality of the spirit or the invisible realm. This realm literally exists and is more active and impacting than the natural realm.  In many instances, activity takes place from this realm first before manifesting in the natural realm. The Spirit of God further revealed that there are several major challenges affecting the life of every believer, one of which is knowing the enemy that you are fighting and knowing how to engage the battle.

Ephesians 6:10, 12
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the
wiles of the devil. 
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Unfortunately, whether you are willing to acknowledge, believe or accept it or not, there is a real war that exists in the spiritual realm between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness.  As a believer, you are the light of the world and a part of the Kingdom of Light which is governed by the Almighty God. As a result, the devil seeks to oppose you and commands a confederation of demonic spirits from the realm of darkness to wreak havoc in your  life.

Jesus died and shed every drop of blood in His body so that you and I can have the power and right to live an abundant life, free from the vices of the enemy.  It is not God’s will that any of His people should live defeated.  He encourages us to be prepared for a spiritual battle that He has already equipped us to win.

SCRIPTURES: John 16:33,  Ephesians 2:2, Revelation 12:7-10

 PRAYER:  Father, in the name Jesus, I give you thanks and praise for everyone who have taken the time to read and understand the truth about spiritual warfare and how to win this fight against the enemy.   I am grateful that every child of God is a part of the powerful Kingdom of Light and is equipped to overcome their invisible enemy, the devil.  Thank you for the victory you have given us through the blood of Jesus Christ.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:  I decree and declare that greater is Jesus Christ in you than the devil that is in the world and no weapon formed against you shall prosper!
