Tips for October 31st
By Molly Noble Bull
I always think of wrestling and boxing as guy things. In most cases, women fight with the tongue in the form of gossip and spiteful acts. All these are examples of man against man or woman against woman. But according to the scriptures, our fellow humans are not our enemy.
Then who is?
Click onto this video and turn on the sound to find out.
The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12.
But who are these principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness? And what about spiritual wickedness in high places? Are we talking about people or otherworldly beings?
Beings, in my opinion. Can you spell demons?
Currently, spiritual warfare is making a comeback. Many Christians fight demons daily in the name of Jesus.
Others don’t believe demons exist, accepting the world’s view that demons are harmless mythical characters with batwings, horns and pointed tails or ghosts and goblins. Not only do they refuse to believe that demons are real as the Bible plainly states, they honor these beasts on their high holy day by decorating their homes with pumpkin-heads and portraits of skeletons, witches and other Halloween symbols. If that was not bad enough, they dress their children in costumes depicting the very powers and principalities the Bible warns against.
It has come to my attention that some Christians are able to actually see these demon spirits—often when they close their eyes at night in hopes of going to sleep. One person reported that at first glance they look like ordinary people you might see in the course of ones everyday life—on the street, at Wal Mart, anywhere. Yet if those seeing these other worldly beings delay in rebuking them, the beings slowly change. Instead of looking like ordinary people, they melt into the demons they actually are—much like in a horror movie.
True Christians don’t engage in a wrestling match with other humans. They rebuke Satan and his fallen angels and demons in the name of Jesus Christ.
The name Jesus is powerful in the spiritual world. When demons hear that name, Jesus, they flee.
Instead of celebrating the demon’s high holy day this year in shades of orange and black, pray against them in the name of God’s only begotten son, Jesus Christ—our Lord, Savior and King.
