The Whole Armor Of God, Part X
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
God has given us all power and authority to war with the powers of darkness and to defeat them with our spiritual weaponry. We have received the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, healed the sick and cast out a multitude of demons, but the only thing we lack is experience in our use of them.
Keep in mind your enemy has been deceiving the saints for thousands of years and they are highly experienced in subterfuge, (a trick or device used in order to conceal, escape or evade) camouflage, deceit, deception and lies and they have been observing us from birth. This is why we must arm ourselves, test our weapons, understand how our armor works and be about our Father's business by warring with our enemies instead of acting like a bunch of children penned up in a perpetual daycare, singing about victory while the rest of the world is being destroyed by the powers of darkness!
We are heading toward the end and the church has become a laughing stock to the world because our elders went whoring after money and neglected the basic training of new converts, if in fact there were any because of all the hype and foolishness going on. Millions perish in flames of damnation, cancer is killing multitudes, abortion has murdered fifty million innocent children on our watch, and now terror has entered the scene and with it unbelievable atrocities! We are the only hope for the world and their salvation and it will take everyone doing their part with all of their heart to win the war and usher in the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ! May God have mercy on us all!
"Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Luke 10:19
