What more could happen to stir the anger of the enemy? Tomorrow is Pentecost, and the enemy hates when we celebrate Jesus, and the Church. If you don’t recognize the torment of the day as a spiritual war, you need to pray that your eyes be opened. This current trouble is not about flesh and blood, it’s about the power and principalities of the air. I went to bed praying Psalms 91, a prayer of protection, and I woke up to the same prayer, but the Holy Spirit added Psalms 51, which is a psalm of repentance. The enemy wants us to think this current tragedy was brought on by humans, but the truth is that a demonic presence was stirred in the heart of a depraved individual, and it released a legion of demons bringing an uprising in hearts that are weak, and unprotected by the Holy Spirit. This war looks like one thing in the flesh, but something different in the spirit. The world thinks it’s a fight over race relations, but the enemy knows that if he can destabilize the world, he can conquer it. He will not win! Those on his side will lose, and their fate is inevitable. Hell is rejoicing; but not for long. With the prayers of those who love the Lord, “no evil shall be allowed to befall you”, and “You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.” Armor up!
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
