“Shadows” in the Darkness PT2
In the war of fighting demons, we have mighty weapons!
But, we must learn of their importance and how to utilize each piece.
Esprit De Corps – Team Spirit
It’s the CAUSE you SERVE that makes you what you are!
Grace is the policy of GOD!
You see, this is clearly understood and The Bible specifically tells us that Salvation is by faith alone; it is a gift from GOD (Eph. 2:8-9). No one can ever be saved by being baptized, joining a church, by agonizing, by giving money, or by doing good deeds.
This means that there are NO LIMITATIONS on GOD’S grace to you.
We are given the equipment to become a soldier. The purpose of a soldier is to help bring people to GOD. The evangelist is given the ability to clarify The Gospel and present it with power. Somewhere along the line every believer has benefited from the gift of evangelism. Someone led you to Jesus Christ; that person was led to the Lord by someone else, who was led by another, and so on and so on…
When GOD gave us the disciples (ambassadors), this was our first gifts of what we should look at as a parallel to Jesus Christ! They were teachers and pastors. The word for this is poimen, an ancient Greek word for “shepherd” and another would be didaskalos, or “teacher”. Along with the title, GOD give certain qualities with the position…these are spiritual gifts. These are inclusive of one another, they all go hand-in-hand…
The seven duties are in Ezekiel 34:
Feed the flock
Strengthen the sick
Heal the diseased
Bind the broken
Bring in the scattered
Seek the lost
Protect the sheep from the wolves
CODE OF HONOR
Within GOD’S army, we have honor! This introduces us to the protocol. Divine good is the standard, the code of honor for a ROYAL ARMY.
It’s important to see that this is not set up for “perfect people” but for the frail. The great men and women in The Bible were sinners, just like us…however, they were honored and great in GOD’S sight because, by faith, they served a noble cause.
If you want an honorable life, commit yourself to the cause of Jesus Christ.
Military discipline comes with a set of rigid rules to a soldier with a purpose. The word, “Stoicheo” was used by the Roman army for the purpose of precision marching. This enables a band of men to act as one body traveling from one place to another.
2 Timothy 2 (KJV)
Alrighty then! We’ve established some ground rules on how the classification and the presence factors are perceived. Now, let’s get into the nitty gritty of WHO they are and HOW we kick these demons out of our lives.
You cannot effectively fight a spiritual war if you don’t understand how things operate in the spirit realm, both good and evil. Demons recognize your power and authority, but they only acknowledge it when you acknowledge that you have it!
Every person who believes in Jesus Christ becomes a new recruit in the army of GOD. But a recruit without training is of no benefit on the battlefield. The recruit must understand his purpose meaning himself and his own limitations and how GOD can exceed those with tactics so he can understand his enemy.
REMEMBER: We cannot be a soldier and a civilian at the same time!
Logistics is a military term and science of procuring, maintaining, and transporting material and personnel. GOD always supplies us with what we need. This all pertains to our walk!
Walk in faith (2 Cor. 5:7).
Walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:4).
Walk in the Spirit (Gal. 5:16, 25; Eph. 5:17-18).
Walk in good works (Eph. 2:10).
Walk in love (John 15:12; Eph. 5:1-2; 2 John 5-6).
Walk worthy of GOD (Eph. 4:1-2; Col. 1:10).
Walk in grace (Col. 2:6-7).
Walk in the light (1 John 1:7).
Now…march on, Soldier!
Understand that as a soldier you are going through stages of readiness such as basic training, preparation, and equipping yourself for combat. This means exactly as you would expect. With the tools GOD has provided, we can rest assured that as a soldier were are in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing. For this to take place, we must listen and obey commands. In GOD’S plan, we are given the assets and equipment that belong solely to us.
There’s only one way we can ever change the world – change the ground that you are standing on! Christian, you are going to have to plant your feet and stand on the honor code. Believe in the cause you are fighting for, and never retreat!
There are people out there that NEED HELP!
Protect the sheep from the wolves…
Who would ever consider such vampires to be a real thing! What’s crazy is this is only one species of vampire…meaning, demons are shape-shifters and this is how they have confused centillions of people. I know, people are wondering how would you know an exact number…but we’re talking a LONG time folks. This number is 10 to the 303rd power! These beings are parasites and deserve to be called out for who and what they are.
GOD created everything in the beginning. There’s no mistakes, and people love to use cause and effect to show a false justice system against GOD for what’s taken place but GOD has a plan and there are no coincidences and no mistakes.
The rankings of entities in heaven are only given to us in The Bible as virtually 9 categories but GOD works in mysterious ways and how could everything HE has created and done be put into ONE BOOK. Meaning, I don’t doubt The Word of GOD for one split second, but we must understand GOD is so complex and so is HIS system of Laws. We could never put it in a box and say it’s done! Only when we pass over will we discern.
So, the nine ranks are:
Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels.
Powerful stuff right there! We as humans can’t fathom it even though we try. The war in heaven resulted in Satan and his angels being expelled.
Of course, the occult is an establishment which has gained its knowledge from demons. First of all….let me tell you this!
I classify anything and everything (in the supernatural world) NOT of GOD…demonic.
Semantics keep people in straits, debating for eons over this matter but it’s plain and simple.
Within the occult, Satan mimics GOD…because Satan cannot create real life! He only brings forth chaos. We are warned about playing in the occult from The Bible, but yet we live in a time like NEVER before. Witchcraft has gained notoriety, so to speak…and has exponentially grown in the last several years. This is expected because we are closing in on the war of all wars and the dark side knows it, so they gear up!
The Bible began with bloodlines, and it will end being about bloodlines.
The demonic world govern these evil bloodlines and have done so for millennia. They utilize the powers of their ancestors, and keep the blood pure in order to do so.
Jesus asked the demons what their name was and they said Legion because they are many. Some legions could consist of 6,000 demons. Remember, Genesis tells us GOD said be fruitful and multiply…demons also try to do that as well. For tougher assignments, some demons come together to strengthen themselves in an attempt to completely take a person out. They understand the power of numbers and power of unity.
There are some demons specifically assigned to families and bloodlines. They are “generational” demons. They try to have spiritual marriages with others generational demons to keep your bloodline in bondage to whatever is was holding over you and your family.
When truth comes down to truth…demons govern these families, and not the other way around as these people would have you to believe. So, they use witchcraft/magick to attack and control.
As the writers of this movie highlighted in this article reveals, these demons hide and linger until they work you down…mentally and physically. They’ve known how to do this as long as they’ve existed and they’ve only honed their powers.
One thing to remember: Although this is an army within the dark-side, they are not composed. They set out to conquer a host and reside within it, eventually to take the life from the soul and then possess the soul to bring to Satan. This army sounds organized but demons go ROGUE all the time for which they do get punished but this shows that they are divided by their own ignorance.
The plot of the movie surrounds itself around a small town in which these brothers lived, and when they got to the “heart” of the matter…they found a cult. This cult was controlled by demons.
True enough modern religion has grown into a cult itself because Satan controls it. So, even though you may be connected to a church and its congregation…it’s a facade. So, all religions are cults and the head of that would be the Roman Catholic Church. And let’s not be misled…fallen angels rule over it.
The Watchers are a group of fallen angels which The Bible does tells us about. It tells us they fell from GOD’S grace and left their first estate. This means they decided to go ROGUE! They were as order of protection for humanity. This “hedge of protection” literally was broken and has allowed doors to open that GOD never intended to be but HE uses everything to HIS OWN design and plan.
Let me remind you that GOD only needed two little things to drop Goliath – one small stone and one small boy who believed that GOD is able.
Paul gives us seven disciplines:
- Bible Study is the BELT that holds your life together, that gives you stability and security.
- Confession and the filling of The Holy Spirit is the BEASTPLATE that makes the righteousness of GOD real in your life.
- Evangelism puts shoes on The Gospel and extends the borders of the empire.
- Faith is the SHIELD that can deflect every arrow of the enemy.
- Assurance of your salvation is the HELMET that protects your mind from fear and doubt.
- The Word of GOD is the SWORD of the Spirit in your hands. It is your only offensive weapon.
- Effective prayer is the road that links you to every other Christian and enables you to put up a FORCE FIELD of protection.
Put on this armor on the knowledge that you need it – that you are weak.
Put it on with the realization that in the armor – in Jesus Christ – you will be mighty!
We are to take a stand. Make a stand for honor and righteousness. Take a stand to help those who need you. It’s what’s right!
