Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) – 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.
The devil wants to kill your spirit. The devil is the enemy and he attacks us in the spiritual realms. Don’t pray against people. People are not the enemy. Pray against evil. Pray that people learn to Love, and not Hate.
You may see a person attacking you, but the devil is hitting you with fear and doubt. You may see a citation, subpoena or audit; but the evil one is attacking you with confusion and guilt.
Ultimately, the devil wants you doubting God. He wants you to give in to the ways of the world and stop obeying God. For the atheist, it makes sense to do what feels good to be at peace.
Luke 23:34 (KJV) – Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Do Not Be Deceived Into Fighting Men!
Most “evil” people have no clue who God is. They have been taught to lie to get ahead in life. They have heard the world lie to them so much, it becomes their truth. “Those who get caught are losers.” “Those who confess are weak.” “It is not bad if everyone else is doing it.”
Evil people are usually raised in a hate-filled world where might is right and manipulation and deception are positive traits. It is not their fault. Some have tried “religion” or God’s way, but they revert to their comfort zone at the first sign of struggle.
Pray for the lost people in the World. Do not fight the lost people. Generational curses can be easily broken by God alone. Our weapons are not carnal. The Power of God is accessed through prayer and faith. GET ON YOUR KNEES AND FIGHT LIKE A MAN OF GOD.
John 10:10 (KJV) – The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
What do we fight? We must stand against the schemes and temptations of the Evil One! Our personal enemy is the Devil. He will tempt us to deny God’s provision. He will tempt us to partake of the World’s pleasures.
The Devil tries to attack us in our mind and emotions. Power and Success appeal to our mind. Beauty and Luxury appeal to our emotions. The Devil is an angel. He has been to Heaven. He was ranked high in the angels of God. The Devil is no slacker.
We must be diligent in our quest for Holiness. We must put on the Lord’s Armor and Stand against the Devil (Ephesians 6:11). We can stand for God on our knees or walking down the street. Pray continuously and go to war against Evil. Forgive the sinner and abide in Christ. The battle belongs to the LORD.
Matthew 13:38-39 (KJV)
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
