Not Flesh and Blood

Younger Israelis

For several months now, I have heard that we are to bind the spirit of Haman (from the Book of Esther)  in the U.S. and Israel. The same spirit attacks both Trump and Netanyahu. We will see victory when we carry the fight into Satan’s realm. I believe the strong victory of Netanyahu in this week’s election is one such win.

Do you think we can take this phrase literally? “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood,” Until we do, we will keep losing our spiritual battles.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

The word for “wrestle” is from a Greek root that means to “vibrate”. Maybe that is the source of the slang: “bad vibes”. We indeed are in a cosmic battle for this planet. But it is not about human enemies (flesh & blood), but real living beings (spiritual hosts of wickedness) in heavenly places. These are real demonic forces in another dimension, who are principalities and rulers. There is no battleground in which to engage them. They occupy “heavenly places.” How can this be? There are three heavens in the Bible. One is the physical canopy of the clouds, sun, moon, and stars. Then there is the Heaven of God’s residence, the third heaven. But, in between, is the second heaven, the sphere where Satan holds limited authority over the earthly realm of unbelievers.

The apostle Paul spoke of a “third heaven.” He also spoke of “the prince of the power of the air,”

Satan’s power is less than the authority given to believers, in and through the Messiah, Jesus. Therefore, we must learn to wrestle and triumph over the enemy, through spiritual means. That is why Jesus gave us His power and authority in the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit in us is greater than the devil or his demons. The problem is that many believers are unaware of our authority, and thus try to fight against flesh and blood humans. It is time for us to rise up in the Holy Spirit and carry the battle to the real enemy.

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Jesus: Luke 10:19-20

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13

Read Ephesians 6:10-18 to get the full picture of the armor of God. It is time go to war in the second heaven, and to wake up, stand up, and speak up, for the Kingdom of Yehovah God and King Jesus.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
