VIII. MAIN BODY:

Ephesians 6:12 (Amplified Bible)

For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

Ephesians 6:12 (New King James Version)

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

A. We don't wrestle with flesh and blood

"For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents],"

Our enemies are spirits not human beings. We wrestle or vibrate them in the name of JESUS. That's the only name they recognized, they will bend their knees and say their lips that JESUS IS LORD!

Philippians 2:10-11 (Amplified Bible)

That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

There's always a wrestling match on decisions that we make in life. That's why before I do it, I rely on GOD'S WORDS first and foremost, see what the LORD JESUS has to say about that thing and I renew my mind according to GOD'S WORDS and not according to my likes.

Luke 13:24 (Amplified Bible)

Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it], for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.
