Two Sides of the Battle PT4
Have you noticed a strong force of evil taking over Earth? Beware…this is why! Strongholds are battles within themselves. It’s a battle within a battle. It can take place within yourself, and then around you as well. Wickedness in high places are the elite who worship Satan. And the Principalities are the fallen angels/demons who rule over them. We must understand how the spiritual world works in order to battle it. Don’t believe Satan’s lies when he tells you that learning these things is evil…that just makes his work easier!
The phrase spiritual wickedness in high places refers to Satan and his demonic horde who inhabit the spiritual realm. This is a world unseen by us that exists in our midst. These spirit beings are not friendly toward us and will use every opportunity they can find to torment us. Sometimes they plant lies in our minds that contradict the truth we learn from GOD. Paul said we have divine weapons to take these thoughts captive and make them obedient to Jesus Christ.

Satan Has His Own Church: Synagogue of Satan
GOD established the true church which is known as the “Body of Christ” of which Jesus Christ is the head: Now ye are the Body of Christ, and members in particular… (I Cor. 12:27)
The difference between deliverance and spiritual warfare is that deliverance is dealing with demonic bondages, and setting a person free.
Whereas, spiritual warfare is resisting, overcoming, and defeating the enemy’s lies (deception, temptations, accusations) that is sent our way.
Deliverance involves the breaking up of legal grounds, the tearing down of strongholds (offensive spiritual warfare), and the casting out of demons.
Spiritual warfare on the other hand, is dealing with three key things the enemy sends at us: temptations, deception and accusations.
Defensive warfare is guarding yourself against the tactics or schemes of the devil.
Spiritual warfare comes in two ways: offensive and defensive. Offensive warfare is tearing down the strongholds the enemy has formed in your mind through deception and accusations.
Strongholds are based on lies from the devil. They can come in the form of deception or accusations.
