NOT FIGHTING FLESH AND BLOOD
We’re not waging war against enemies of flesh and blood alone. No, this fight is against tyrants, against authorities, against supernatural powers and demon princes that slither in the darkness of this world, and against wicked spiritual armies that lurk about in heavenly places. (See Ephesians 6:12)
It is not very often, I write about our adversary, the devil. But today is the day.
Don't be fooled by the schemes of the one, who thinks he is the ruler of this world and the ruler or prince of the airwaves. I have warned numerous times for Christians not to fall for the spirit of fear, that has been released globally. The enemy has come down with great wrath, because he knows his time is short. He is a deceiver and an accuser of the brethren.
One of his major weapons is Fear and it will produce unbelief, doubt and most of all a frantic, fearful frenzy of self-preservation, selfish ambition, pride and a lack of love for God and others. This is what I have been observing, even Christians hating their own brethren. Apostle John wrote in 1 John 4:20 If someone says, "I love God" and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God, "whom he has not seen? 21 and this commandment we have from Him; that he who loves God must love his brother also.
Most of you have probably learned, where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder, confusion and every evil thing. (see James 3:16)
Let's not be influenced by the "VOICE OF THE AIRWAVES", instead listen to the word of God still proceeding out of His mouth and remember that faith is working and flowing through love. God's perfect love annihilates all fear and drives it out. We are called to walk in His love and releasing it, as it is already in our hearts.
Because of lawlessness, the love of many will be growing cold, as a sign of the times we are in. (see Matthew 24:12).
I can't afford to be offended and become bitter in my soul, because of the signs of the time, to the point where I close off my heat and ultimatley my love grows cold. As we walk in His love and manifest His kingdom as Jesus did; miracles, signs and wonders will be released. As Jesus said: they will know you are My disciples, because of the love you have one for another.
We are in extreme need of Supernatural Discernment. Apostle Paul prayed in Philippians 1:9, that your love may abound yet more and more in ...all discernment.."
We are taught that solid food is for the spiritually mature, whose senses are trained and exercised by practice to discern and distinguish between what is good and what is evil. (see Hebrews 5:14)
Jesus knows people and He discerns what is in their heart. He knew that Judas Iscariot was a thief. He knows everthing so well, but Jesus never addressed issues by His flesh. His way of dealing with people was always by the spirit and He has given us the Holy Spirit. It is His will for us to exercise our senses, because then we will be able to discern rightly. With this kind of training, comes the need of discipline, necessary for discerning what is the flesh vs. what is the spirit.
Following are scriptures to ponder:
In which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— Ephesians 2:2
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4
