Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
“Against the rulers of the darkness of this world” is worth reflecting upon. Kosmokrator is the Greek term for a “ruler of this world.” Paul reminds us that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but there are demonic forces of darkness that literally “spiritually” rule here on earth (between the earth and the moon; the air; atmosphere). We can’t ignore this. We can’t pretend that we don’t understand this. There are demonic forces that have rule on the earth. They have influence. They have control. They have power. There are “people” who have surrendered to the influence of the rulers of the darkness of this world and they are under demonic influence – people in government, law enforcement, education, the media, hospitals, church and every other institution in the world. The rulers of the darkness of this world answer to and are under the direction of Satan. It’s real. We just need to ask God for revelation first so that we can “see” what’s happening. Then we have to ask God to help us to use our weapons to fight the rulers of the darkness spiritually. We can’t win a spiritual war with flesh. God open our hearts, minds, and EYES to receive what you’re showing us in Jesus’s name. Dr.J.
