In today’s watered-down Christianity, we have lost sight of the Spiritual War that is raging around us. Most Christians have very little understanding that the Spiritual War is not a “personal” war, although it does affect us individually. The battle is between the “seed” of the Serpent and the “Seed” of the woman. Humans are pawns in the game. Control of the world is the prize.
Jesus Christ has already defeated His foe. “All power is given unto Me both in heaven and earth.”
But the battle is still playing out, much like a football game. There is still time on the clock but the outcome has already been decided. Our job is to “Occupy ‘til He comes.” We are approaching clean up time in this great cosmic battle.
At the same time, we really do not understand our enemy. The Bible warns us that “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” What you don’t know can kill you. So here is a little background on the enemy of Christ.
“Satan” is a transliteration of a Hebrew word, which means “adversary,” or “opponent.” The word “satan” is used multiple times in the Old Testament, often referring to anyone who is blocking or challenging someone else.
