Some Interesting Facts About Spiritual Warfare
You can read many books about good and evil and the fight for good that spans many centuries until this day. While some books offer you a fantastic view of the unseen realms, most of them are a combination of both fantasy and real-life situations. Before you read these books, you must understand what spiritual welfare is all about and where you stand in this never-ending war.
Spiritual warfare is a term that describes the conflict, war, and assaults that happen in the invisible spiritual realms. A lot of people wonder if there is truly a need for them to become demon hunters. Should you wage a war against Satan and his demons intentionally? One of the things that you need to know about spiritual matters is that you are engaged in spiritual warfare whether you know it or not. Satan always has evil plans strategized from the beginning of time to destroy and deceive all people. The first spiritual warfare encounter between the serpent Satan and man all began in the Garden of Eden.
As mentioned above, all people are going through spiritual warfare. The struggle between good and evil has been going on ever since what happened in the Garden of Eden. God warned the man about the dangers of eating from the tree of knowledge. He made it clear to Adam that death will be the consequence of disobedience. Disobedience is a sin, and sin always causes death. God gave Adam clear instructions to watch over the garden and eat any plant or fruit from the trees except for the tree of knowledge of good and evil. He warned Adam that if he does eat it, he will die. Satan, in serpent form, however, deceived Eve into eating the fruit from this particular tree. After Eve ate the fruit from the tree, she presented it to Adam to eat too. Their spiritual connection to God died instantly after eating the fruit from the tree. Their spirit died, leading them to be aware of their flesh and hiding from God and what they’ve done.
The same scenario that happened in the Garden is still happening in this day and age. People become so consumed and aware of their bodies and the flesh that they don’t pay enough attention to their spirit. It is only by reconnecting with your spirit can you find a way to reconnect with God. By worshipping God and connecting with him, you need to use your spirit. You cannot connect with the Lord with your minds or flesh alone. Always remember to worship God in truth and spirit.
The spirit and the flesh of a person are always at constant war with each other. If you walk in the Spirit of God, you will not have to worry about your flesh being subjected to doing something bad. To become demon hunters and fight against the rule of Satan, people should learn how to walk in the Spirit of God. As you walk in His Spirit, you will not yield to the desires of the flesh. Your flesh fights against the Spirit of God and the same Spirit against your flesh. This war leads you to do things that you should not do. By yielding and submitting to the Spirit of the Lord, you will win your battles against your flesh.
