Military terminology is used throughout the New Testament. Our Spirit-baptism marked the beginning point of this Spiritual warfare. The early Church knew they were engaged in an intense Spiritual battle. Protection was seen in the armor of God. Because the engagement is Spiritual so must be the weapons employed. It is a struggle between the Spirit of man and that of the Enemy—an engagement of Spirit with Spirit. The Word of God is compared to a sword. Satan's attacks are called fiery darts. Faith was the “good fight” and believers were told to “war a good warfare”. You should always keep your weapons in your mind and not in your hand.
While difficult challenges have risen from outside the Church, the most grievous have always been from within. Satan’s greatest ambassadors are not Satanists, bikers or Power-brokers, but Politicians, family members, and Ministers of religions. His priests do not pitch a different religious belief, merely a deadly perversion of the true one. His troops do not make a full-out frontal assault, but work as agents, sneaking into the opposing army. Satan’s tactics are studied, clever, effective, but also predictable.
The same Spiritual battle continues even today, but instead of fighting the Enemy the present-day believers often make great Church buildings, produce musical dramas, hold company meetings, and fighting one another while this great Spiritual battle wages around them. Satan has even intensified his attacks against a Church that has withdrawn from the front lines of battle. The Bible says that God’s people are ruined because of lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). One of the fundamental areas in which believers are being defeated is due to lack of knowledge about the Spiritual fight and experience in Spiritual warfare.
Every person alive is engaged, in this battle, whether he understands it or not. The actual enemy is Satan the devil, who seeks to destroy all humans, whether they are male, female, Muslim, Christian, American or Arab. There is no neutral ground, no in-between. The bible makes it clear that now, the cosmos is not being run according to God’s principles, and unbelievers are in thrall to evil, being led captive by Enemy forces and by Conformism to their territory. what we face as a society is something that we all must confront at some point; one person cannot fix this world on their own but each person can do their part in getting out information of the Truth.
Though believers have been discharged from the Enemy through Yeshua, they are despite everything, absorbed in the war for two causes. All believers wrestle against evil Spiritual forces because of his relentless counterattacks as well as to free others from their captivity. “Wrestling” involves a close personal exchange. No one is exempt from this conflict. No one can look at it from a distance. The Christian warfare on no account, ceases. I give this pointer very sternly; fear is indeed the mind controller. You are stopped at times from learning anything more because of the internal feeling of death and about what really happens after death.
Spiritual warfare is “multidimensional,” which means it is fought in diverse proportions.
It is a social engagement between the worshipper and the world (John 15:18-27).
A personal struggle between the Flesh and the Spirit (Gal 5:16-26).
A supernatural battle between believers and evil Spiritual powers (Eph 6:10-27).
This invisible war is being engaged in, on Earth. Satan fights to maintain control of the realms of the world. It is working everywhere with ingenious industry among the time exalted Church unreceptive to herself, and he availed himself of Divine decrees and controlled religion. He does not want them to derive under God’s authority. Satan blinds the Spiritual eyes of the unbelievers and attacks believers in the areas of worship, their household, their daily walk, and their work for God. The Enemy may influence our Spirit as much as the Holy Spirit can, we unwittingly may accept every moving in our Spirit to be from the Holy Spirit and thereby give up ground to Satan for pursuing his objective of destroying the moral, mental, and physical well-being of a person, making him suffer unspeakable pains. It is a force unseen, unidentified except by its effects, which is ever acting in the world for evil, working against the law and testament of God. Who are the malevolence rulers, that overwhelms the world of Spirits?
“They shall condemn the stars of Heaven, shall lift up their hands against The Most-High, shall tread upon and inhabit the earth, exhibiting all their works of iniquity, even their works of inequity. Their strength shall be in their riches, and their faith shall be in the gods that they have formed with their own hands (money-religion). They shall deny the Lord of Spirits, and shall expel Him from their temples, in which they assemble” (Enoch 46:5).
They will be judged accordingly:
“Prince Michael the Archangel condemned and then decreed that The Judgement Shall Fall on them” (Enoch 58:1)
When a nation declares war, they habitually issue Articles of War. This document explains why they ensue war, ascertains the Enemy, and declares the purposes of the war. The Bible is the written Word of the One True God, the Superior of our Spiritual army. The exposing of the foe and his line of attack is one of the eminent revelations of God’s Word. Even bigger is the revelation that as believers we have sovereignty over all the entitlements of the Enemy. As in natural warfare, competence in Spiritual warfare is in growth as we contend with and start to oppose.
This is how they dominate. References can be found in Ezekiel 13:1-9, Matthew 23, Revelation 17:14, and even the Koran Sura 3:64. It is the Church, all of them of every Spiritual establishment, and the State, all governments, who oppress, attack, distort and deprive the souls of Earth, to sit at Satan’s side and rule in his one-world control and religion intrigue. While the world is headed for darkness and destruction, because we allow the evil-doers their control, Yahweh said He would not allow fulfill destruction of the earth, on account of the Elect.
“And when the punishment from the Lord of Spirits shall continue, upon them shall it continue, that the punishment of the Lord of Spirits may not take place in vain. After that, Judgement shall exist with mercy and longsuffering” (Enoch 59:29).
Satan, who is the god of this earth, has blinded the minds of those who do not think. They are unable to understand the glorious Light of the Good News. Yahweh is so big that He cannot be delineated in the language of human races. Neither can they consider Him in their deliberations, for He is beyond our appreciation. They do not see the message about the Grandeur of Yeshua, who is the exact likeness of Yahweh. Though they are words of Wisdom, they are useless unless accepted by believers who hold mastery over themselves.
Being disconnected from the source of life (for any reason) means an organism will begin to die and continue to fail. The eye that sees earthly things is deceitful, the present moment is of little to no value, the past is something we cannot undo or ever forget, and the future is intrinsically more important than both the past and the present. They also cease to produce any advancement in life or workplace. Instead of exercising their intuitive ability to find the thought of the Holy Spirit or of engaging their sense of right and wrong to distinguish good and evil. This takes our attention away from what is going on right now and points it towards the hereafter. Yet the eye that sees Spiritual things are sincere
Some vainly hope that its overthrow will be achieved by the refinement of the human mind and the dissemination of secular knowledge. With this information, you now have a chance at saving yourself and others. Those who are still confused can make up their mind as to which side truly resonates with them so they can go about it fully and not halfheartedly. The last thing you want to do is become so scared you no longer want to know anymore!
Being able to influence his surroundings now, man determines his future state. It is a targeted influence. It brings into the world Wisdom. The only factors his surroundings can affect are the speed and the quality of man’s progress. He may either live through pain, fear, affliction and endless bloody encounters along the track or move forward quietly and contentedly, because man himself aspires to the restitution of all matters. The person, who makes an effort and each time to choose a better environment, succeeds – not for his good thoughts, but for his persistence in improving his surroundings that lead to these good thoughts. Such a person is awarded to a fuller, more advanced state. The mantle will be brought up for him in relational as he accomplishes his purification; but, to understand certain phenomena, he would need competences which he does not yet have power over.
He should choose an instructor, a gathering with likeminded people and learn scriptures, consequently that they would throw a bearing on him on how to progress. Even so these teachings hold no value to human beings who are unable to experience compassion for others or who close their ears to the truth. A faith that is reactive to the pressures of a consumer driven religion, will end up profoundly fractured, with each denomination finding most hateful to God the sins that least tempt its members, while those sins that are most popular become redefined and even blessed. In the end, a market-driven religion gives rise to a market-driven approach to Truth, and this development ultimately eviscerated conservative Christianity and allowed it the possession of hypocrites.
How and when shall it be subdued and put down? We must evolve gradually, slow, and consciously on each stage in the egoistic state we are in, to begin to transform the egoistic state to the opposite altruistic state.
As the end of time approaches it is even more important for believers to understand Spiritual warfare than in the early days of Church history. When a believer has passed over into the orbit of the Spiritual he daily ought to hold a combat position in his Spirit, praying therewith for the overthrow of all the deeds of Satan. The apostle Paul warned… this know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come (II Tim 3:1). To be decently trained for these perilous times, renewed emphasis must be ordered on the strategies of Spiritual warfare. This means asserting that the Christian life is warfare. The sooner we realize and prepare for it, the sooner we will have victory.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that lawless one be revealed, whom the Master shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
