Sizing up the Enemy IIII

A key advantage for evil spirits is their stealth. To humans, spirits are invisible unless they want to be seen, and this is a terrible handicap for us. In 2 Kings 6,we read that Elisha’s servant was alarmed one morning to find the town where they were staying surrounded by a hostile army. But Elisha told him:

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17

How different things would look if we could see the spirit world. Believers would probably walk much more carefully if they could see actual demons following them around. Instead, we too often find that Satan has already done his work among us and departed by the time we begin to wonder if he might be involved. Sometimes the idea of his involvement never even occurs to Christians who stand gaping at spiritual tragedy, confused, and with no idea why or how it happened. We spend most of our time doing damage control because of Satan’s stealth.

  1. I really was glad to see somebody writing the truth about evil spirits. It scares people so much that they would rather stick their heads in the dirt rather then face the fact that we are fighting a spiritual battle. I know sadly both sides of this war. I got mixed up in witchcraft when I was younger and I almost lost my life and thus soul. I got so depressed that I tried to take my own life. I am joyful to say that now I am finally on the right side of this spiritual war. I am here to tell you that satan does not fight fair but that okay. Compared to our Lord and savior he is nothing but a toothless lion. He tries to scare you with his roar but as long as you got on your armour he has absolutely no power over us (no bite) praise God almighty we got the victory!!!!

  2. Amen!!! May God continure to pour out His blessing upon you.
