The war that is spiritual and yet real
Posted by pray2christ
Though this a re-post I still hope and and pray that you are blessed and totally delivered from evil in the name of Jesus.
As believers in Jesus we are in a state of constant spiritual warfare with the Devil and his kingdom. There is no opt out, you were born into this. Surely Jesus overcome the death, sin and Satan by the shedding of his blood on the cross and rising from the dead on the third day. Also as the Devil who was originally a great angel, was cast out of heaven along with his angels for rebelling against the Lord God.
Christ will come again on Judgement day to permanently judge all workers of evil especially the Devil and his angels. The Devil however still wants to continue to engage in war against Jesus and his followers because he is a gambler. Somehow he is highly self deceived, thinking that he can still sneak out a victory against God. But let me tell you that the Devil never has and never ever will win against God and his holy angels.
So the Evil One tries to harm people who are still on earth by some trick or the other.
Remember he even tried to tempt Jesus but couldn’t make a sinner of Jesus! Now after the resurrection of Christ, he can’t tempt Jesus but he surely keeps trying to undermine your faith by various means. He even today tries to oppress who so ever he can take down most easily whether an unbeliever or an ignorant believer.
Satan is full of hate against all humans even those who are non-Christian (even atheists) because man was created in the image and likeness of God (read Genesis 1:26). Now with the preaching of the Gospel of Christ and the New Testament, we must understand that the Devil hates Christians even more because they are a new creation in Christ (read 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Jesus had a lot of to say about Satan and his evil ways. You’d like to know at this point what Jesus said about Satan (click here). One thing that the Bible teaches is that the Devil knows his time is running short. Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.
We therefore must not be ignorant of the Devils plan of hate and murder. He is the original terrorist and is the father of all terrorists. With Jesus on your side you need not fear him. However what is important is that you exercise your faith in Christ. Being willing and then actually participating in spiritual warfare against the Evil One is a sure sign of faith. Our enemies are spiritual, who at times deceive humans to do their bidding on earth. So instead of being hateful of sinners pray for their conversion and if they don’t stop sinning then pray for deliverance from evil.
Pray for wisdom from Christ and then act on it. Pray that evil doesn’t overcome you. Stop crying about corrupt politicians and instead pray for good governance. Don’t worry about your children’s health and education, follow wisdom and pray for them. Pray alone or pray with your church against the powers of darkness but most importantly pray in faith.
