Darkness: The War is Real

"Did you know that when you carry the Bible, Satan has a headache; when you open it, he collapses; when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength; AND when you stand on the Word of God, Satan can't hurt you?"

The above excerpt is from a long forgotten email saved that was true then, and true now. Demons and spirits of darkness are real, and are serious about their mission to steal from you, destroy you, and with the ultimate satisfaction to kill you.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12

The spiritual realm is a very big part of a Christian's belief, and though we like to think on angels and heavenly imagery, the darkness is real. Moreover, spirits of darkness are our enemy and who we wrestle against as Believers, but it's time those in the Lord's army get ready to rumble.

Even so, "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them (the Spirit of Antichrist), because HE (Jesus the Christ) who is in you is GREATER than he who is in the world." 1 John 4:4

Life Application Study Bible:
"It is easy to be frightened by the wickedness we see all around us and overwhelmed by the problems we face. John assures us, however, that God is even stronger. He will conquer all evil—his Spirit and his Word live in our hearts!"

Good advice: Stay in the Word daily and worship God with your mouth, thinking, and decisions. Don't leave an open door! Don't give the devil a foothold!

Paul says it best, "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called..." Ephesians 4
