“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.”
A LOSING STRATEGY
FIGHTING PHYSICAL BATTLES
The battles the Christian fights are not physical battles: they are spiritual contests, fought against spiritual powers.
There are many false teachers trying to convince their listeners that the battles the true believer faces are physical.
They are not.
The battles the true believer faces are spiritual battles. The enemy will try to distract the believer into concentrating on the physical.
Fear is one of the enemy’s principal weapons: fear of the physical here and now. Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) keeps up a steady drumbeat of fear about all sorts of physical threats.
Don’t get distracted.
It is certain the enemy is concentrating on the spiritual for the end times. Part of the enemy’s spiritual offensive concerns the overwhelming deception in the world.
Deception is what drives the workers of iniquity.
But workers of iniquity are only puppets being used by wicked, higher spiritual powers. Don’t concentrate on them.
Do not do it. It is a mistake.
Again, the battles the Christian faces are spiritual.
And they are fought with spiritual weapons, not physical ones.
“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”
—2 Corinthians 10:4
So what are a few of these spiritual weapons which the Christian is to use?
- Prayer to God
- The Holy Spirit
- The Word of God
- The gospel of Jesus Christ
PART ONE: Where do evil spirits come from?
Some may question the gospel as a spiritual weapon. However, the gospel is the “power of God unto salvation.”
Use that power.
Separating from the world and preparing for the spiritual battles before they take place are also extremely important. Don’t wait until CHAOS surrounds you: be prepared!
AND, the Christian is to pray for those who are trying to destroy him. This come straight from Jesus.
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
None of this sounds nearly as exciting as those charlatans who preach great swelling words about binding and loosing or marching into cities to claim them for God.
This doesn’t please the flesh like those antichrist apostates who want to conquer the world “for Jesus.”
Spiritual weapons are not exciting.
Spiritual weapons are not quick and easy.
But they ARE biblical.
Therefore, they will work.
Something to keep in mind for those who are serious about end times preparation.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
