“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. 

“No Days Off” by Dr.J.

“Everything was going so smoothly. I mean things were perfect and then all of a sudden, all hell broke loose.”

That’s an issue. If we don’t recognize that there is always an invisible spiritual battle, we will be caught off guard when the attack manifests. You may “think” things are smooth and perfect but the enemy is always prowling around, plotting and scheming…always. What is “all of sudden” to you was being planned “all along” by the devil. We can’t afford to be deceived. We have to pray without ceasing. We have to say daily confessions. We have to read and study God’s Word daily. No days off believers because the devil doesn’t take vacations. Dr.J.
