Have you ever imagined the unseen world? The cosmic war that rages over your soul every second?
I saw a multitude of people on the battle field, with their shinning helmets, shields and their swords drawn. All poised up and ready for battle. A fight between God and satan. If I ask which side would fight and stand for. You might take up a sword and literally fight for God. However, the army of the lord was far greater then satan and his cohorts whenever this question is asked. How come?
for broad is the way that leads to destruction and narrow the path to eternal life and few will find it, Matthew 7:13.
Then something might have been wrong with what I saw. Unless many just profess with their lips that they love the Lord but doeth not the will of the father. How can we tell if we love the Lord?
John 14:15 If ye love me keep my commandments.
That’s our way to prove our love to the maker. To obey His precepts and walk in His will for our lives. In the far starry skies, far beyond orions gate lies a great war between good and evil, between God and satan, the battle of the mind and souls. In this war you cannot decide not to fight, there is no middle ground once you are born on this planet, every choice we make on earth decide whether we fight for God or we fight against him. Every choice and act on earth decides whom you have drawn your sword for.
The unseen battle still been fought in our daily lives. Our choices clearly depict which side of the battle we fight for or against.
Search through your heart and make an honest confession to yourself. Are you fighting for God or Satan? What you do in your daily lives shows exactly which army you fall within.
In Daniel chapter 10, Daniel was fasting and praying for 3weeks. However, the prince of Persia, satan, had held the answer to the prayers God had provided to Daniel. Michael had to intervene the battle and fight for the answers to the prayers to be released to Daniel. There are two great powers in the world, and the second most powerful power next to the power of God is the power of satan, the fallen angel. Do not be deceived
for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness of higher places – Ephesians 6:12
War broke out in Heaven and the devil was cast unto the earth, the Lord says woe unto the inhabitants of the earth for satan our adversary has been cast down. These are the words of God and the way to fight this battle is in Ephesians 6:13, wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand and the evil day and having done all to stand,
Stand therefore having your loins get with truth and having the breastplate of righteousness
And your feet shod you’re the preparation of the gospel of peace, praying always with all prayers and supplication of the spirit.
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked, take the helmet of salvation and the sword if the spirit which is the word of
We should study the word of God, so we can stand against satan, for he is cunning and deceiving. If you are looking for him as the man with the horns you won’t find him. He is clever, cunning and artful, remember how he appeared in Eden unto Eve, a beautiful snake talking, pause out of curiosity who wouldn’t want to see such a glamourous scene. I guess if it had happened in our generation someone would have taken a video and snapped it around the globe. But the only way that Christ could defeat him in the wilderness was to quote, it is written. We were born into the world of sin; the carnal mind of a man is enmity against God. So, we ought to feed ourselves with the word of God to be able to stand the test of time.
The will of man is aggressive and constantly striving to bend all things to its purposes. If it is enlisted on the side of God and right, the fruits of the Spirit will appear in the life; and God has appointed, “glory, honor, and peace, to every man that worketh good.” MYP 54.1
When Satan is permitted to mold the will, he uses it to accomplish his ends. He instigates theories of unbelief, and stirs up the human heart to war against the word of God. With persistent, persevering effort, he seeks to inspire men with his own energies of hate and antagonism to God, and to array them in opposition to the institutions and requirements of heaven and the operations of the Holy Spirit. He enlists under his standard all evil agencies, and brings them into the battlefield under his generalship to oppose evil against good
Our only way to win this battle is by divine aid, we must be brought into submission to the will of the infinite, that’s why God says submit yourself therefore unto God resist the devil and he will flee but most often a times we tend to resist the devil first without submitting ourselves to God that’s why he crushes us to the ground.
God loves you and he is ready and waiting for you to make that bold step, to forego the desires of the flesh, and make the right choice.
In Galatians 5:19
now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual; immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions. Division, envy drunkenness, orgies and things like these, I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God
Christ is coming soon, and we are preparing for war, it is about time we dress up for war and fight for Christ, the mind is the battle ground and our choices and actions determines which side we are poised to fight for. remember God will bring everything into judgement, for man shall be judged even on our thoughts, will you from today fight for Christ or for Satan? the choice is yours.
