Spiritual Warfare
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the Schemes of the devil. Eph. 6:11 We are in a battle wheather we are know it or not. Every Christian is in a battle, it you are not aware of this, then you are surely loosing the Battle. We wrestle not with flesh and blood {people}, but against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. Eph.6:12 This wrestling match is not with anyone in humanity, but with the forces of evil, Satan and his demons. Jesus said: every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand; and if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. Matt.12:25-28 Here Jesus teaches us that Satan has a kingdom and when anyone that has been demon possessed is delivered, that proves that the kingdom of God is superior to the kingdom of Satan.

Giving thanks to the Father, which has made us qualified to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light, Who {the Father} has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son. Col. 1:12,13 When I became born again I was delivered from the influence and the power of the Satanís kingdom. That also tells me that Satanís kingdom stands today for people continue to get saved. Satan continue to have influence in the world today. But where is his kingdom located? There was a day when the sons {angels} of God came to present themselves to God, and Satan came with them. Job 1:6 This tells me that during the time if Job Satan still had access to God in heaven.

We are told in the book of the Revelation that: the dragon was cast out {of heaven} that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world; he was cast out into the earth and his angels was cast out with him. This tells me that he will have access to heaven for some time to come for this is a future event. It seems that Satan likes hanging out in the heavenly realm. Paul tells us that our fight is with spiritual wickedness in high, or heavenly places. We also know that Paul was taken up to the third heaven. The first heaven is the place of the clouds, the second heaven is the place above the clouds ,or planetary heaven, and the third heaven is the place where God abides. I believe that Satanís kingdom is located between the first and third heavens.

We know from Daniel chapter 10 that Daniel prayed and God sent an angle with the answer to Daniels prayer but the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood him for twenty one days. The arch angle Michael had to come and help this angel to battle with the demonic angels that Satan sent to defeat the plan of God. This is a perfect example of spiritual warfare in the heavens, this one between angels. The angels did warfare on Daniels behalf because God had not given out the armor at that time. God has given me His Spirit and provided the armor if I will simply, put on the whole armor of God.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. We cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor. 10:3-5 Our weapons are spiritual, The sword of the Spirit, the word of God. The battleground is the mind [casting down imaginations, everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bring into captivity every thought} Satan tries, and succeeds with some of us, to get us to think that there is no battle. To think even that he does not even exist. He get us to doubt the word of God. To fight with one another. The only offence weapon that we have is the sword of the Spirit, the word of God. All of the other armor is for defense. Are you dressed for battle? Are you aware of the battle? Are you wining the battle? Thanks be to God which always causes us to triumph Christ. 2Cor. 2:14
