The Reality of Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Warfare

We need to realize that the unseen invisible realm is as real as this book in our hands. It is as real as you and I. It is more real and more permanent than anything you can see, feel, or touch.

The spiritual, unseen realm is eternal. The natural, physical, and tangible world is temporary. All things in this world will break down and decay and eventually fade away. Nothing will remain. It is in fact one of the laws of nature. The law of thermodynamics we cannot escape. We cannot break or escape natural laws, Nor can we escape the eternal spiritual laws either.

Having this understanding will cause the way you see reality to change. This paradigm shift will make you aware of a world far more vast than the universe and time itself. Being aware of what you cannot see is just a starting point. The rest will come as you develop your understanding of the Bible. The Bible is the living word of God.

Only allow the Holy Spirit to be your guide in this new world. There are many voices from the spiritual world. Most that you will hear are malevolent, dangerous, and evil. They are wicked. They are liars. Always keep up your guard against deception. Deception is the primary weapon of the enemy we fight. The Bible says to guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)

We need to know and understand as much as possible, that the unseen spiritual realm drives and defines the natural world (Hebrews 11:3).

What happens spiritually will manifest itself in the natural world. The Bible says that words are powerful. That life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Words are spiritual in nature. Words have spiritual force and power. What you say can hurt you, or help you. Much more so the words from the Bible.

Having this understanding will help us greatly in the fight we face. This fundamental and foundational truth will equip us to go even deeper into our understanding of spiritual warfare.

You must fight!
It is my honest opinion that without a doubt, all Christians and non-Christians alike are caught up in a cosmic war in which we are for the most part unaware.
We are all unwilling pawns in a great chess game called eternity. Because so many are oblivious to the unseen realm around us, many are casualties in a fight that we, without Jesus, are unable to win.

Because of this, we must wake up to what is going on in the world around us. It is an unseen world. But not altogether unknowable. It is not completely hidden from us. We have glimpses. We know it is there. We can feel its effects. We can sense its presence. We are not ignorant of it or its methods (2 Corinthians 2:11)
We must together and alone be ready for the battle.

  1. God bless you James. You are right on. 2 Corinthians10:3-5 has been a help for me lately. It seems the old bird( split foot,satan) has had his way with believers. Racking and ruining at will. Many Churches are watered down when it comes to teaching Deep spiritual truths. Thank you for your boldness. Pray for you and your wife. Bless y’all. Bob

  2. Great blog, brother James. Please pray for me. I’ve been enduring, what seems like, the hordes of hell fighting against my mind and emotions. I know that I have passed the test, but I’m tired.

    Thank you and God bless.
