THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE
Eric Aboadwe    [email]    ( Ghana ) 2017-05-08     Views : 212     Touched : 29
Our Scripture reading is taken from the Book of REVELATION which reads:

“And WAR broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels FOUGHT with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels FOUGHT, but they did not PREVAIL, nor was a place found for them in Heaven any longer” (Revelation 12:7)

My beloved Brothers and Sisters in GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS, recently our study seem to have been revolving around the fallen angelic creature called Satan. However, he is not the subject of our study, but God wants us to know his evil ways, and how we can live victoriously by OVERCOMING this evil creature through our complete FAITH in the WATER, the BLOOD, and the RESURRECTION of CHRIST.

We must know that after the fall of angels, they were divided into two – HOLY angels and EVIL angels. Also after the fall of man, men were also divided into two – RIGHTEOUS men (children of God) and SINFUL men (children of the devil).

There has always been a “WAR” wherever Satan dwells because he is not for PEACE. Therefore when our Scripture reading says that “And WAR broke out in heaven,” It is because of this evil creature called the Devil. Because of him, there has always been a “WAR” between light and darkness, good and evil, righteousness and sin, truth and lies, life and death, children of God and children of the devil.

We must know that, God stands for light, goodness, righteousness, truth, and life. Whiles the Devil stands for darkness, evil, sin, lies and death. These two different things are at “WAR.” However, in this “WAR,” through JESUS CHRIST “who came by WATER and BLOOD” (1 John 5:6), light always prevails, righteousness always prevails, truth always prevails, life always prevails, and children of God always prevails.

When our Scripture reading in Revelation says that, Michael and his angels FOUGHT with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels FOUGHT, but they did not PREVAIL,” it is telling us that darkness, evil, sin, lies and death have lost the battle (defeated). When it says “but they did not PREVAIL,” it means that there is no way Satan can prevail over JESUS CHRIST, and there is no way children of Satan can prevail of children of God.

Our LORD and Savior JESUS “FOUGHT” darkness and “PREVAIL” over it. Therefore when it says in Genesis that, “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light,” it is talking about how our Savior “PREVAILED” over the darkness of SIN through His WATER BAPTISM and BLOOD.

JESUS who stands for Life also “FOUGHT” death and “PREVAIL” over it. That’s why He Himself said, “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. And I have the KEYS of Hades and DEATH” (Revelation 1:18).

We must know that because Satan dwells in the world that we live in, there is always going to be a spiritual “WAR.” That’s why when you read the same chapter of Revelation, it says, “...Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because the knows that he has a short time” (Revelation 12:12b).

Even the physical WAR that we see is instigated by Satan who stirs up the evil desires in men to KILL one another. The devil has even gone to the extent of using chemicals to KILL human beings. The Devil works through SINNERS to accomplish his evil desires and purposes. That’s why Our LORD told us that he came to STEAL, to kill, and to destroy (John 10:10).

We must therefore know that as children of God, we are born to FIGHT spiritual battles and WIN. And the GOOD NEWS is that we have already been declared VICTORIOUS in this battle through our Lord JESUS CHRIST. That’s why it is written, “Yet in all these things we are more than CONQUERORS through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

However, if you are a Christian and you are not truly born again of the WATER and the SPIRIT as JESUS told Nicodemus (John 3:5), then you must know that you are standing on the Devil’s side to FIGHT against the children of God. Therefore believe in JESUS BAPTISM in addition to His BLOOD in order for you to come to God’s side and FIGHT on His side. You can only WIN over sin and death when you stand on God’s side.

But if you remain a SINNER as a Christian, and you FIGHT for the Devil, then know for sure that you have already lost the battle. When Satan and his angels lost the battle in Heaven, the Bible says, “nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.” This means that in the same way, there will be no “place in heaven” for those who are SINNERS (children of Satan).

Also If a pastor, prophet, teacher, or an evangelist preaches or teaches a FALSE GOSPEL, then he must know that he is FIGHTING against the TRUTH in JESUS CHRIST. Such a person too will “not PREVAIL,” and there will be no “place found for them in Heaven.” If you therefore want to be a true Christian, then forget about your own denominational doctrines and seek for the Truth in CHRIST.

The dragon and his angels fell down because our Lord God gave the Archangel Michael and his angels the POWER to FIGHT and “PREVAIL” over the Devil. JESUS has also given us the same POWER to “PREVAIL” over the Devil. Therefore He said, “Behold, I give you the AUTHORITY to TRAMPLE on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).

When God gave the “AUTHORITY” for Michael and his angels to FIGHT the dragon, Satan fell down. When JESUS also gave the “AUTHORITY” to the disciples and the Saints, the Devil fell once again. Therefore when the seventy (70) disciples return to the LORD with JOY for the fact that demons were subjected to them, JESUS told them, “I saw Satan FALL like lightening from heaven” (Luke 10:18).

This “AUTHORITY” is given only to those who believe in THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. We must take not of the fact that when the disciples received the “AUTHORITY” to “TRAMPLE” over “serpents and scorpions” (Satan and his angels), JESUS had not yet even died on the Cross, and His BLOOD was not yet shed. But WHY is it that the disciples were able to “trample over all the power of the enemy?”

Here lies the MYESTERY of the Gospel of CHRIST, and it is none other than JESUS BAPTISM. The disciples were able to “trample on serpents and scorpions” because at that time JESUS had already fulfilled “all RIGHTEOUSNESS” for them in His BAPTISM (Matthew 3:15).

But what do we see today? Today, many FALSE pastors and prophets claim that demons are afraid of the BLOOD of JESUS. But why is it that the disciples never used the BLOOD of JESUS to cast out demons, and yet they were able to TRAMPLE over “all the power of the enemy?” The secret is in the WATER BAPTISM of JESUS.

Even before JESUS died to shed His BLOOD on the Cross, the disciples were given the “AUTHORITY” to fight and WIN spiritual battles over Satan and his demons. This alone shows that the pastors and the prophets who believe in only the BLOOD of JESUS to cast out demons are just joking. If they lay their hands on people to fall down, then it is the Devil who is just putting on a show.

How can somebody cast our demons when he doesn’t even believe that JESUS fulfilled “all RIGHTEOUSNESS” in His BAPTISM? Nobody can WIN spiritual battles without having FAITH in the BAPTISM of CHRIST. The WINNERS in the spiritual warfare are those who wholeheartedly BELIEVE that JESUS “came by WATER and BLOOD” (1 John 5:6).

Therefore we the RIGHTEOUS born again Saints are BORN TO WIN, and we must FIGHT against the UNTRUTH with the TRUTH until the end of our lives in this world.

You have been BLESSED with the “AUTHORITY” to WIN in the SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
