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)
There is a relentless, unseen war that takes place in the realm of the spirit between the kingdom of darkness ruled by satan and the kingdom of light which is ruled by God.
In Ephesians 2:2, satan is known as the prince of the power the air. It is said that he governs the second heaven, from where he commands a host of demons. His demonic confederation is structured and operates under a strict governing hierarchy of principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. It is from this realm, that believers encounter demonic attacks. Satan has demonic spirits assigned to attack, resist, hinder, oppress or destroy individuals, families, communities and even entire regions.
In Ephesians 6:12, we are reminded that our warfare is not with flesh and blood; it is not with people that we can see, but it is with demonic ruling spirits who are under the command of the devil. He can use people at times to come against you, but ultimately the attack originates from his wicked kingdom of darkness. In John 10:10, we are warned that the enemy only comes to steal, kill or destroy; but Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. In order to overcome the spiritual warfare from the second dimension, I admonish every believer to engage the spiritual weapon of prayer.
(2 Corinthians 10:4, 5)The warfare is spiritual and so are our weapons. Your power and victory was won by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. He died so that you can be victorious over every attack of the enemy. Praying in the name of Jesus and applying the blood of Jesus are spiritual strategies that will empower you to overcome every spiritual adversity in your life.
