    Spiritual Armor for Spiritual War

    Thursday, July 24, 2014, 8:52 PM [General]

    "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)

    This might confuse some people. They say, "Devils fighting in heaven? I thought God reigned in heaven!" What they don't understand is that the Bible teaches there are three different areas called heaven:

       1. The heaven where God resides.

       2. The stellar heavens (what we call "outer space").

       3. The heavens around this earth (the atmosphere surrounding this planet).

     This last heaven is where spiritual war takes place. (That's why Ephesians 2:2 calls Satan the prince of the power of the air.) The air is where wicked spirits operate. From there, they attempt to rule the nations assigned to them.

     And rule them they will unless the prayers of God's people keep them from it.

     God has an army marching in this land. If we band together, we can prevent the wickedness in high places from ruling our nation. The time has come for us to pray. So, put on your full armor and take your place in the ranks of the faithful in intercession for our country and the nations of the world!

      "But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling God in christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)

    If you love me, keep my commandments

      My song is of mercy and justice;

    I sing to you, O Lord.

    I will walk in the way of perfection.

    O when, Lord, will you come?

      I will walk with blameless heart

    within my house;

    I will not set before my eyes

    whatever is base.

      I will hate the ways of the crooked;

    they shall not be my friends.

    The falso-hearted must keep far away;

    the wicked I disown.

      The man who slanders his neighbor in secret

    I will bring to silence.

    The man of proud looks and haughty heart

    I will never endure.

      I look to the faithful in the land

    that they may dwell with me.

    He who walks in the way of perfection

    shall be my friend.

      No man who practices deceit

    shall live within my house.

    No man who utters lies shall stand

    before my eyes.

      Morning by morning I will silence

    all the wicked in the land,

    uprooting from the city of the Lord

    all who do evil.

      In imagination I enter Elizabeth's home as Mary came to visit her.

      What lessons of modesty, humility, discretion, and love I learn here!

      Elizabeth recognized Mary as Mother of her God (Lk 1:42-43), showered gifts and blessings upon her, praised her greatness, and congratulated her on the extraordinary favors God had done her.

      Far from letting herself be dazzled by her own dignity, Mary gave back to God the praise offered her and used the occasion to glorify the Lord.

      She admitted that God Who is mighty has done great things for me (Lk 1:49) but she also assigned all the glory to Him. She did not forget that, though she was Mother of God, she was also the servant of the Lord (Lk 1:38). Here is sincere humility with none of that false modesty that so often masks a secret pride.
