I’ve never seen anything like this; the world is fuming. No longer do we come together to intelligently debate and come up with compromises when there are differences of opinion. Instead, rage is the new format for dialogue. Lines are drawn, barricades mounted as veins bulge in anger.
We need to stop the foolishness and obey God!
But unknowingly to some, all this bickering and clawing is useless and a waste of time. The battles are spiritual and must be fought spiritually (see Ephesians 6:11-18). Fighting by any other means is entertainment for the devil who is conspiring this fury. He has studied us and knows how to provoke our most sensitive areas of vulnerability.
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools (Ecclesiastes 7:9, KJV).
When fury rages, beware; demons are on the prowl.
The world is fronting a cascade of serious issues, all of which are coming unglued at once. But, when all this bottled-up rage is handled apart from God’s way of doing things, we lose. He is the Only answer; the earth and everything in it belong to Him, the Creator of all. One day every knee will bow.
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1, KJV).
Humans are easy marks for the kingdom of darkness when they lack the faith to see and acknowledge evil spirits exist. Then some are aware but tip-toe—afraid they will rattle the enemy’s cage if confronted. Being passive won’t stop evil forces from coming after us, but our active faith in God—will stop him in his tracks.
Some time ago, I wrote a post called: Don’t Bring Toy Weapons to a Spiritual Fight. If we’re not using the Word of God, the Sword, in these spiritual wars, we’re fighting with toys, and the devil is laughing.
The battle belongs to the Lord (see 2 Chronicles 20:15); therefore, follow His orders. Let the enemy know he can rage all he wants because we know who’s really in Charge.
