"A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:10-12
Beloved, we are living in perilous times as scripture has indicated.. The times are evil and we can see it all around us everyday, just turn on the radio or television.
Our communities are mourning all over this country and around the world, so much hatred for our fellow man. See Matthew 24:12. The enemy is attacking our homes, marriages, our youths (the future generation), our very existence etc. Church, what are we doing about it? Are we sitting back folding our arms and just saying it is well or are we rising up and fighting back with the weapons God has given us. The apostle reminds us in 2 Corinthians 10:4 that “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” and knowing this , we should then recognize that we are dealing with powerful unseen forces and we cannot fight them with physical weapons.
Friends, It is time for us, the body of Christ to rise up and take our positions taking back what is ours. There is one force behind everything that is going on in our world today and he has been around since the beginning of time and despises mankind especially the children of God (the brethen). He is the prince/god of this world and is causing calamities and woes in the lives of men and women, but it does not mean we or our loved ones should continue to be his victims.
Let us put on the full armor God and also utilize the power of intercession prayer, to do battle against the enemy of our soul. We are facing greater spiritual battles today than ever before. There has been a release of demonic activity on earth over the last 2-3 years that is unseen in world history. and I tell you the truth it is not going to end anytime soon, for the world is going to see an even greater release of demonic activity on all unimaginable levels. The enemy knows that his time is very short and this is an intense battle for the souls of men.
