My dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ
Before I begin I thank God, for calling me, and guiding me, that I can guide you, in his ways. In the spirit of love, let us pray to our Lord God, Father glorify me with your presence, that I can speak about You and your Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and Dear Father also glorify them who comes to know about You, your Son and the Spirit that is Holy through me, because I am no one, it is you God who live in me, it is you Father have crafted me, it is you Jesus who has made me anew, like I am a new creation, and it is you Holy Spirit who leads me. We praise you Lord, Hallelujah. Amen.
Remember in the last letter friend, I told you Being a Follower of the Anointed, is not easy task, and that it is a constant battle for us, nearly, in every breath of our life, we have the option to choose our Creator, or to choose the Created.
Now if we choose the Creator, we get graces, look here “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19.
Similarly if we choose the Created, well lets just say it has its rewards too “Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.” John 8:34.
And we know “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Before I go any further I must tell you about the Miracle which just now happened in my life, I knew that today, God has called me to show you who the real enemy is, and how to fight him and keep him away from our lives. But I knew that that enemy will try its best that I do not share the news. So I prayed to the Lord, that Lord, make the ways that I can write to you this Good News, that I may fulfill your holy will. And trust me, this is happening, so this is the living miracle. Hallelujah
And Romans 8:38-39 says “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
You know, we are God’s children, & thus he is the only person, who never competes with us, not because that we do not have comparison between us, but because he completes us in his love for us.
“Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?” Romans 6:16
NOW WHO IS OUR ENEMY ?
Let’s just take a moment and understand what battle are we fighting everyday? And who is truly our enemy. Lets take a closer look at the Word of God and try to understand it word by word.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
For our Struggle
“Is not against Flesh and Blood” – that means that our enemy is not of This World or of Earth?
So who are we up against? – We are against the rulers (can be referred as Kings) against authorities (can be referred as Prince),
But which Kings and Which Prince are we talking about, for we only know that there is only one TRUE King and one TRUE Prince and one TRUE Majesty and that is Jesus Christ. Friends you are absolutely right.
But what to do, there is this one self proclaimed King, who names himself as Prince, as the Prince of Darkness, who is also known as The Fallen Angel.
Now if the Dark World, has a King who is the Fallen Angel himself, then He needs to have an Army, and that is the “Spiritual Forces of Evil”.
Lastly where is the Battle fought on? It’s fought on “Heavenly realms“, now this phrase comes from Greek word “epouranios” which means “the sphere of spiritual activities.” “Heavenly realms” actually refer to both angelic and demonic activity.
So friends, now do you see who is our one true enemy?
Oh wait what you are not satisfied, you want proof right?
Well I can tell you one thing that when the Lord, leads you, He actually gives you everything that you will ever need so he has also shown me the verses!
Do you know that God has an enemy?
Yes only one enemy, the Serpent, the Dragon, the Satan, the Devil, whatever you want to call it. You can click here to see all the verses that proves it!
And are we not God’s people?
So tell me friends, Are we not the people of the Lord?
Did Abba Father , not sent his only begotten son, that by his most painful death in the cross, we can be purchased and saved, that once again we can live in the free will of God?
If you believe the answer is Yes, you are God’s people, and you will understand what I’m talking.
(PS If you do not believe in God, friend, then I’m sorry to say that, I’m not a friend of you. For if you with God, God will guide me to you, for I am his servant, if you not, then God will keep me away from you so that you cannot harm me in anyway. And God personally will deal with you.)
So does that not make Satan our enemy too?
Now you see friends, suddenly all the stories of Bible coming to life? Now you see how our History is also affected it? Can you feel that your life was also under the attack of this devious enemy? Can you see that it was Satan who actually tempted you to commit a sin?
Don’t you see that it was sin, that made Adam and Eve fall, it was sin that made God destroyed Sodom? It was sin that broke God’s own Church(THE CATHOLIC CHURCH) into 40000 denominations?
Now do you believe that it was Sin which was the cause of Death of us?
So, now as you have identified your Enemy, let me share some good news with you, that even we are bound to the sins, we purchased from Satan by Jesus Christ, The Garden of Eden is once again open for all of us, by the precious blood of Jesus. We are safe, all we have to do is accept Jesus Christ in our life, and thus we can see the light of the world, Jesus Christ, shining brightly even in darkness.
No I do not want you believe in me, believe in the Scriptures
Romans 3:23-25 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished”
Now if you want to read more about it then I suggest you read Romans 6 .(CLICK ON IT)
Now as Jesus Christ has defeated Satan, he is powerless, in front of God, yet he is not destroyed, so he still has the power to tempt and deceive you and me. That is why stay alert, and meditate on the Word of God that you can win against him.
NOW THE FINAL QUESTION HOW TO FIGHT HIM?
See what the OLD TESTAMENT SAYS : 2 Kings 17:39 “Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is he who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.” and thus if you worship your God, with all your heart and with all your strength, then God will be pleased with you and he will save your from your enemies.
The NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLS it in: James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” When you worship the Lord, you get power to resist the devil, and then you resist the devil, and thus he will flee from you.
And you know what our God, has given us the authority over demons and every other unclean spirits and most importantly over Satan.
See what the OLD TESTAMENT SAYS : Psalm 91:13 “You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.” So God gave us hope that he will give us the power over Satan.
The NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLS it in : Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Now it is through Jesus Christ we have obtained the power.
LASTLY, WHAT TO DO NOW?
I saw we use the power that is given to us by Christ Jesus to crush him out of out lives once and forever.
If this is war, my friends, then lets get ready for Battle
There are two ways to prepare ourselves
For Ephesians 6:11-18 says “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
Friends, we should thank God, for now we not only know who is our enemy, but also know how to defeat it.
God is with us, Arm yourselves, with the Glory of God, that you have attained through prayer, lets take the the fight to eliminate sins from the world, but first from our own hearts.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, I pray to God that let this be our battle cry from today onward, “Kurios Iesous” or “Jesus Christ is the Lord”, and when we fight temptations in our life, that we can always say that “I can do everything in him who strengthens me” (i.e Jesus Christ.) Philippians 4:13/ Amen
