Until we learn of the unseen realm, many and myself included wondered why certain things would happen without any rhyme or reason. The more scriptures are read the more a whole new meaning and answers appear. There is a spiritual battle that many are not aware of yet can cause havoc on ones life if left in the dark, literally in the dark as Christ the light of the world has come to open the eyes of the blind and shed a light on the darkness many live in. (John 3:19-21). And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
There are principalities and powers of darkness which motivate some who allow themselves to be moved by its power. This world we live in has satan as the god of it, and those who love the Lord can overcome by the blood he shed on the cross for he has triumphed over it all! (Colossians 2:13-15) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it…..(2 Corinthians 4:3,4).
Many times our battles and struggles in this life are given us to overcome by the Spirit we have to tear down strongholds, and to make us the soldiers of Christ we were called to be! (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;…..(Ephesians 6:10-13).
IT IS OUR FAITH IN CHRIST THAT GETS US THE VICTORY!!!! (1 John 5:4,5). For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
