SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/09/15- “Contend, Stand, And Fight, But Only Against The Real Enemies!” (Ephesians 6:12)
Premise Question: Who are we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, suppose to stand up to, as our avowed enemies, by fighting and contending against them, as well as, understanding the their nature and characteristics, and, who are we not to be fighting and contending with and against, by treating them with contempt and fighting them as if they are our enemies?
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 NLT)
For it is now high time to come into the clear understanding of this vital truth, that we are not and should not ever be fighting and quarreling, being embattled with each other, as humankind, for that is not where the real “life or death” battle is taking place! If we are presently fighting with each other, it is merely a distraction, that takes us away from the real fight, with our real enemies, in another realm, and this will not ever benefit us in any way, shape or form. Our real enemies are the nefarious, being most malevolent and pernicious rulers and the corrupt governmental authorities, with influence, license and jurisdiction to operate, with dark authority, in the world that exists, but can not be seen or dealt with in the physical or natural, but must be dealt with in the supernatural, because they have their powers from a dark world, which is under the control of the spiritual evil forces of the evil one, the Devil, who are presently controlling the atmosphere and air of the supernatural sphere. (Ephesians 6:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: #1, We need to become more aware of the fight we are in, and, that it is a fierce battle, a life or death struggle! #2, We need to recognize and know who our real enemies are, by understanding their nature, characteristics and tactics, so that we can have greater success against the enemies of our souls, in which we are struggling and embroiled with, in this fight! #3, We also need to recognize and accept that we are not each other’s enemies and immediately stop and desist with treating one another with contempt, by fighting and quarreling with each other. Stop it! Now! And, #4, It’s time to come together to fight together, not with each other, but to contend and fight against the real enemies of the eternal existence of our very souls, and that we are to be strong in this fight, being empowered with, through and by, the power and might of The Holy Spirit, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty!
