For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. -Ephesians 6:12 NASB
Our fight is not against people but against ideas, teachings, and interpretations that come through manipulated people, who have been deceived by way of demonic activities in their lives. False teachers are motivated by powerful spirits to preach doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1-2).
The enemy travels back and forth in the atmosphere, seeking a victim. These “spiritual forces of wickedness” have a strong desire to cause you great pain and to see you spiritually lost—not knowing the right Jesus.
They have hierarchy with authority and great power—only with Jesus Christ living inside you, can you overcome such powerful enemies.
