Ephesians 6:12

 
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.
Ephesians 6:12

Oftentimes when we face hardships or battles specific to our Christian walks or obedience to the Word, we fail to see who is really behind the problem. We blame the politicians, we blame the teachers, or we blame the object or person that we can identify with our eyes. However, we must realize that there is a spiritual realm that is all around us behind much of the evil and wickedness that takes place in this world.

According to this verse, this spiritual realm of evil is operated by Satan himself and helped carried out by his demons. It is a world operation that is highly organized and structured. It has different levels of authority and rankings within this realm that are designed to do one thing: destroy lives. Whether it be through the government, false prophets, the school district, or your own family, when evil seems to be infiltrating, you can be sure who is behind it all.

This reality should wake us up to the fact that we have a far greater battle ahead of us, not only for ourselves to walk uprightly, but also for the gospel message to continue to be given to every nation and tribe.
