For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness, against spiritual wickednes in high places. Ephesians 6:12
God's Word points out that our trials and tribulations in this world are underpinned, devised and carried out against us, by the satanic powers of true evil.
God in the Bible, His Word to us, says it seems to us that we wrestle against other people, but in reality from His Perspective, it is against satan and his army of demons who create these problems, based on our choices, which evil heavily influences, when we are not submitted to God, Who will help us through our trials by His Power.
The principalities, powers and rulers of the dark evil wickedness who rage against us with cunning deceitfulness do not have Power.
God has Power!
Evil has power (weak, limited, not pure.)
Jesus is a Mighty Warrior for His people; those who believe in Him and are willing to be committed to Him because of what He did for them on the Cross of Redemption, He will help to make a Way where there seems to be no way in any situation we ask for help, and allow Him to go forth before us.
God is very aware of everything evil does. Evil has certain freedoms to rule over the people of the earth, but they are limited if we freely give our allegiance to The Most Holy and High, Name Above All Names, Almighty God; Jesus also known as God.
Once we have the Covering of our Lord and Saviour, demonic powers are still able to tempt us, to poke and prick us with troubles but we must fully stand with our Redeemer and Love Him.
He in return will keep us safe and help us forward on the spiritual path to Righteousness and Eternal Life.
The Holy Covering is what Christians call Freedom.
It is the Blood of our Lord Jesus, shed for us at Calvary.
Before accepting the Blood Sacrifice for our sins, we were enslaved to evil. Christ died to break the bonds of slavery and for those who recognize His Work on the Cross for us it is a Free Gift, because He loves us.
It is what the Law of God required, so none can complain or scoff at the Judgement or look for loopholes in the Law.
The Law was Fulfilled by the Death and Resurrection and the Blood shed, of The Holy One.
It is a Valid Ticket to Freedom and Eternal Life.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Satan is man's enemy.
When we have limited Knowledge of God, we will always choose satan, because he has made the world's economy, beliefs, cultures, entertainment, and more, in ways that appeal to us; all so he can manipulate God's chosen people.
How foolishly we fall into step with satan, wanting to have earthly pleasures.
Most of us, until we gain Godly Knowledge do not want to serve God, Who owns all riches in Goodness.
We don't understand Godly things because evil is always on the attack against God and His Truths, which satan knows we will ultimately want more than what he offers because satan's offerings are so empty; having no substance.
The Bible tells us, that God blesses some with wealth; but His Wealth is never given to an evildoer. He uses it to make ways for His people to be employers of others so He will be known through the life of a wealthy believer; so believers can bless others as they love others and testify of God's Holiness and Beauty.
God does not and cannot reward an unrepentant sinner for their sinful choices and behaviours.
Those who follow after satan's offerings sometimes have wealth that is allowed to come to them by their allegiance to satan. It comes from living worldly; enticing others in worldly ways and addicting them to sinful behaviours.
It may be required of them at any moment by God; and when burnt in the day of Judgement will be just ashes. They will have nothing to give to the Lord but ashes of a life lived selfishly.
God said He will make beauty from the ashes of a believer's life!
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3and provide for those who grieve in Zion- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.
Friend, the workers of spiritual wickedness are all around us. Gad has allowed it for His Purposes. We are not our own. We have a choice to make.
If we are not for God and do not believe in the Holy Cross and Resurrection of His Son, we are seen to be unbelievers.
While alive we have a short window to be testified to, or to be won over by the Holy Spirit and God's Holy angels as to the authenticity of God and His Son through the beauty and perfection of Creation, God's Handiwork which proves His Majesty and Pure Brilliance in all areas of science and in the loveliness of new borns!
Take a moment to wonder when you have been shown God's Majesty in the past.
He will be able to show you many instances after your death that will cause you much regret.
Now is the time. Today is the day!
