“Engage the Real Enemy” by Dr.J.

My prayer is that of Elisha. God, open the eyes of your people. Even though there is a physical war; it is a spiritual war. Open our eyes please Jesus. 

Paul clearly states in Ephesians chapter 6 that we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We focus so much on “people” and “situations” and “circumstances” that we fail to recognize that there is an invisible battle going on in the spiritual realm. We fail to see the demonic forces behind the injustice. The devil and demonic powers are at work in the world constantly. Demons laugh at flesh fights among humans; principalities smile at rallies for racial and social and political justice; rulers of darkness think that “movements” for rights are hilarious. 

What truly changes the heart of a man? If a person is under demonic influence, oppressed by and working for Satan, will a hashtag or movement or a rally or a picket sign tug at his heart strings? His heart has been won by Satan…

At the name of Jesus, powers of the air tremble; they get anxious and uncomfortable. Will we continue to employ carnal weapons that don’t even put a bandage on the ills we’re suffering? Or will prayer warriors, end times warriors, and vigilant soldiers of spiritual warfare “rally” for the deployment of spiritual warfare? If the rally isn’t spiritual, change won’t be permanent. Will we EVER engage the REAL enemy? Dr.J.
