The reason for the harsh realities in every corner of the earth is because Satan (once upon a time a good angel, but now full of evil) is the Prince of this earth. Satan has one goal which is to capture many souls to be destroyed with him in the lake of fire. Satan is an aggressive enemy of mankind who is overseeing the killing of many innocent people including children around the world. Sometimes, Lucifer is causing deadly sickness and disease, famine and economic depression among others.
Whatever tribulations that human beings are faced with today cannot be compared to the torment or joy to come, but this book encourages the reader to choose joy and not torment. This book encourages you to choose and walk on the path of light. This book also enlightens the reader on spiritual warfare, how humans are trapped in the warfare and how to effectively overcome in spiritual warfare using the right spiritual weapons. This book concludes that, although, there are battles but the war is whether a person earn eternal life with God (which is victory) or ends in destruction with Satan (which is considered a lost war).
Warfare has been described as the process of military struggle between two nations or group of nations. It is also an armed conflict between two massed enemies, armies or the like.
To understand spiritual warfare, you must first believe the concept of evil forces against good. The forceful struggle between the kingdom of light and kingdom of darkness. Christians do engage in spiritual battle every day and the grand war is whether the Christian earn an eternal life or not. Spiritual warfare is not fought in the physical realm and physical weapons are not used.
The world we live in is spiritual because it was formed by God who is Spirit. (Genesis 1:1). It is also important to mention that spirits live together in this world with humans. The proof that spirits live in this world is in the book of Revelation 12:9 which mention that Satan the devil (spirit) and his fallen angels (spirits) has been hauled to the earth. Also, the book of Revelation 5:6 proves that the lamb carries the presence of the seven Spirits of God to all the earth. However, conventional human eyes cannot see these spirits and it does not mean that the spirits cease to exist on earth.
The challenge on earth now is that the spirits present are two rival powers with previous war history. Their war history is in Revelation 12:7 and since after the war in Heaven, these spiritual armed forces meet on earth again to continue their struggle until the last day which is biblically referred to as the day of the Lord or judgement day.
How are humans trapped in their spiritual warfare?
This book will mention four reasons that trap humans in spiritual warfare
Because God is interested in mankind as in Psalms 8:4, Satan also show interest in mankind which leads to conflict of interests.
Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, God has planned to bring man back to restoration and Satan does not want this to be successful.
God has prepared Paradise for mankind for eternity and Satan knowing this is all out to fight this plan. Satan, who has made himself a rival power to God, has determined to thwart God's plan for mankind and ensure that humans should not enter into the Paradise of God.
The fourth reason humans are involved in spiritual warfare is that among the inhabitants of Heaven and earth, only God is to be worshipped. Read Nehemiah 9:6. Satan on the other hand demands that human should worship him directly or indirectly through idolatry
