Whether or not we care to acknowledge it, there is an unseen battle going on in the spirit realm with the forces of evil vs. the forces of good. This is a very real battle and it effects what happens in our reality. This may seem Sci-Fi or Hollywood, but do not be mistaken, there is a very real battle going on and it is for every soul on this planet.
People have been conditions by the media to see anything spiritual as friction and made up, not realizing that all of ideas being portrayed in films and TV programs etc and the music scene, have been heavily influenced by the spirit realm and it is part of the attack.
A lot of the mainstream celebrities that people look up have openly admitted that they have opened themselves up to the spiritual realm. However people are too blinded by the seduction of their gift to even recognize what they are saying.
We live in the internet age, where access to information and communication is greater than any other time in human history. This increases the intensity of the attack, however it also increases the opportunity for the gospel to be spread.
Through all of this, God is still in control and nothing has taken him by surprise and as the enemy has stepped up his game, God’s game has always been on point.
As Christians we have to see through spiritual eyes as well as natural eyes and if we do that, we will not just see what is in front of us, but we will see the spiritual influences. This will allow us to walk in the authority God has given us and to join this spiritual battle through prayer:
2Co 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the world. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
2Co 10:5 and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive in order to obey the Messiah.
2Co 10:6 Once your obedience is complete, we will be ready to reprimand every type of disobedience.
A perfect example which gives us some insight into the war going on is, what was revealed to Daniel when he prayed in Babylon:
Daniel 10:1 Daniel’s Vision
In the third year of Cyrus, king of Persia, a message was revealed to Daniel (also known as Belteshazzar). The message was trustworthy and concerned a great conflict. He understood it and had insight concerning the vision.
Dan 10:2 “At that time I, Daniel, had been mourning for three straight weeks.
Dan 10:3 I ate no fancy foods—neither meat nor wine entered my mouth. Furthermore, I didn’t use any ointment until the end of the entire three weeks.
Dan 10:4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was beside the bank of the great Tigris River,
Dan 10:5 I lifted up my eyes to look—and behold!—there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was encircled with gold from Uphaz.
Dan 10:6 His body was like beryl, his face flashed like lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and legs were like polished bronze, and his speech roared like that of a crowd.
Dan 10:7 “Now I, Daniel, was the only one to receive the vision—the men who were with me didn’t see it. However, an enormous fear overwhelmed them, so they ran away to hide,
Dan 10:8 and I was left alone to observe this magnificent vision. Nevertheless, no strength remained in me—my face lost its color, and I became weak.
Dan 10:9 As I listened to the sound of his words, I fell down on my face unconscious, with my face to the ground.”
Dan 10:10 Daniel is Given Understanding
“All of a sudden, a hand touched me and lifted me upon my hands and knees.
Dan 10:11 He told me, ‘Daniel, man highly regarded, understand the message that I’m about to relate to you. Stand up, because I’ve been sent to you.’ When he spoke this statement to me, I stood there trembling.
Dan 10:12 “‘Don’t be afraid, Daniel,’ he told me, ‘because from the first day that you committed yourself to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard. I’ve come in answer to your prayers.
Dan 10:13 However, the prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for 21 days. Then—look!—Michael, one of the chief angels, came to assist me. I had been detained there near the kings of Persia.
Dan 10:14 Now I’ve come to help you understand what will happen to your people in the days to come, because the vision pertains to those days.’
Another good insight is when Elisha asked God to open up the spiritual eyes of his servant, when all his servant could see was what was in front of him:
2Ki 6:15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
2Ki 6:16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
2Ki 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
God protects us against what we can see, but also against what we cannot see, this is why it is so important to hide ourselves in the secret places of the Most High as it says in Psalms 91.
The battle is not ours, it is the Lords, this is why we do not have to fear what the enemy can do to us, because just as long as we stay in our spiritual covering, he cannot get to us.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
Zec 4:7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
Whatever the spiritual attack is, it is not going to be by your strength that you overcome but by the strength you are tapping into.
So many people try to deal with things in their own strength and that is way they fail, but God is calling us to Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding and if we spend time to get to know him, we will be MORE than conquers because of the blood of Jesus!
Parallel Business Principles
In our business, it is not designed for you to do it by yourself and if you try to you will fail. It is designed for you to do it with a lot of help and support. There are so many things that will come against you to try and get you to quit but you have to tap into the source that has been provided for you, which is your upline support team. When you use your Upline and the system, you will be protected against the things blatantly in front of you but also the things that come which you were not excepting.
Success is not going to happen simply because of your own efforts, it is going to be because of a combined effort of a lot of people.
So do not believe the naysayers and all the negative, ignorant people that think they know but don’t; BUT believe in your personal WHY, your vision and your desire to see the end result, and in all thing glorify God!
