Summary: Most of us as individuals have low-level demons attacking us, hindering us, and so all of us that are in the Army of God must have divine help each and every day, God has provided an Armor for us, but we must put it on.
EPH. 6:10-18 ARMOR OF GOD 2-12-11
I think it’s obvious to any person that will be realistic, that Satan and his demons are very busy these days, we’ve all seen on the news programs the trouble that Egypt is experiencing, but to the natural man, the man that’s never been born again, he just thinks that their having political problems and that it’ll all pass as time goes by, and may I say, that there’s babe’s in Christ that think the same.
And look at all the other neighboring countries over in that part of the world, ”IRAN-LEBANON- SYRIA- IRAQ- AFGHANISTAN – PAKISTAN- and now Egypt, that whole part of the world is in chaos, if they can’t kill us or the Jews they’ll kill each other, and we’re certainly having problems here as well, commercial Babylon is getting ready to collapse, the entire world is having jobs and financial problems.
The devil is busy laying the groundwork for the battle of Gog and Magog in the not to distant future.
This battle takes place at the middle of the tribulation, Russia will head up this suicidal crowd, they think their coming to destroy Israel and take a spoil, but God is fed up with the enemies of Israel, He draws them to the mountains of Israel for their destruction, God kills 5/6th of that coalition on the hills of Israel, there’s not a shot fired by any opposing army of the world, God does all the killing, we that are saved will not be here, and its going to happen, nothing can prevent it, its all in Gods plan, read Ezk.38:-39:.
Satan hates Israel because they are Gods chosen people, they penned down the “ORACLES”, (the Word of God)
Romans 3:3--unto them were committed the oracles of God.
Romans 9:4-5 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Satan hates any thing that God loves, he hates all people saved and not saved and would destroy it all if he possible could, he knows that he is defeated and that he’s on his way to the lake of fire according to Rev. 20:10, he knows that he can’t touch Gods children unless God allows it such as brother Job, but he’s not going to give up trying to cause us to slip and perhaps go to an early grave, he sends temptations our way trying to cause us not to be effective witnesses for Jesus, he knows our weaknesses and we all have them, the devil has over 6000 years in dealing with mankind so he knows all the tricks, its called the “wiles of the devil”.
The devil is a fallen angel, he is not all knowing as God is, he can’t be at but one place at a time, so he has other fallen angels to help him, we think of them as demons, and their just as real as you and I.
But we’re also in a war right now as your listening to the broadcast, this battle is being waged all around us in the spiritual realm, and spiritual battles require spiritual strength, we’re soldiers in Gods army, are we always PRESENT or at times A-O-W-L-absent-without –leave in His service?
2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
The devil’s demonic army has a rank structure like all armies have; there are some high-ranking demons that are in charge of certain territories, certain countries.
This is revealed in -- DANIEL10:12-13
Daniel had been praying to God and not receiving an answer to his prayer as yet-- the angel Gabriel came to Daniel and explained the delay in terms of spiritual warfare:
12Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 13But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
So there was an opposing demonic force to fight against Gabriel, to try and keep him from coming to Daniel with Gods answer to his pray.
Nothing has changed today, I believe that all Nations have a demon or demons over the affairs of that nation, their here to disrupt, tear down and destroy if possible that nation, Satan is trying to turn all nations against Israel, but the True Church loves Israel, what we need here in our nation is godly leaders, leaders that are truly saved instead of a bunch of pretenders that will say and do just about any thing to please the crowd, it seems that we have some that are trying purposely to tear this country to pieces, may God help us.
