Warring On The Inside

Views 207

I received saving faith one afternoon at home. I was alone, tired and empty. I was changed in a moment in my heart, mind, and will but at the same moment, without me knowing, I became someone involved in spiritual war. I had zero knowledge about spiritual warfare that comes with salvation. My eyes were open that the selfishness and aggressive of man is on the inside. The question for me is, where does evil originate. Someone had to have the first thought and action of evil.

Ezekiel 28:11-19 tells of when sin was found in Satan. Satan, created by God, one day fell in love with himself and he worshipped his beauty and abilities. In Isaiah 14:13-14 we see he brought war against God. Though defeated, Satan has never lost his desire to be God and he fights to deceive anyone he is able, so they bow to him. The foundational sin is pride which was found in Satan.

The first thing to know is, the unseen war is against God. Which means Satan is at war with all believers.

1 Peter 5:8 NASB Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Satan roams around looking for people he thinks he can destroy. His only desire and purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy you (John 10:10). Satan is an in your face, up close, and personal enemy.

An attack by the devil brings the following; fear, anger, worry, feeling alone, feeling hopeless and helpless, feeling worthless and unloved, feeling defeated, along with chaos and much more.

Believers are able to defeat the devil through the Truth who is our Victor. Victory is knowing the Truth. Our foundation of truth is Christ Jesus and He has the authority and power over all, including Satan.

Ephesians 1:20 HCSB He demonstrated this power in the Messiah by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavens— 21 far above every ruler and authority, power and dominion, and every title given, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

Do you know you are in spiritual warfare? If you are a believer who has received saving faith you are in spiritual warfare. Learn in whom you believe and know who your enemy is!

Ezekiel 33:6 "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand." (Amplified Bible)
