The first and the most difficult thing we have to understand about spiritual warfare is that our enemy is invisible. The trials you face from day to day primarily, are not caused by the individuals you come in contact with, but are initiated by fallen Angels. We are dealing with powerful spirits that have programmed this world to turn your heart from the Truth.
The battle for your soul began at creation, and was won over two thousand years ago. The problem we face today is that few really realize that Jesus Christ won the battle on the Cross – victory is ours if we choose to receive it.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
Spiritual warfare is a battle for your mind. The enemy never wants you to come to the knowledge of the victory in Jesus Christ, so that he can rob you of the freedom, peace, and joy that was paid for. The enemy doesn’t want you to understand that we were healed of every sickness, illness, and disease. If we won’t receive the Truth, we won’t realize we can walk in divine health.
This is what the Word says about spiritual warfare…
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6:10-20)
