Some Won’t Hear This
Dr. Jed Snyder, President, Jesus Every Day Ministries
There are some folks who will not accept what the following Bible verses are speaking about. They may not believe in the Lord. They may not believe in spiritual forces. They may not want to admit that God can help them. They may not believe that they need God. There are many reasons (excuses) that one can contemplate. That these exist does not mean that they are necessarily credible.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 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 6:10-12
Supposing these statements are, indeed, true. If there is truly a spiritual realm in which a battle between right and wrong is raging, then for us to deny that is to deny reality. If there is spiritual armor that one can wear, and one chooses not to wear it, that person is denying reality and allowing oneself to be vulnerable to forces that may cause serious damage. If, indeed, there really is a devil who with his demons is attempting to hurt us, and we deny his reality, that denial does not make him any less real. Indeed, if he is real, such denial will force us to look for other explanations of things that are often very bothersome to us. Such investigating will be futile because it will not end in the truth.
So maybe we can really accept the spiritual battle and ask our Lord Jesus Christ to help us win it.
Happy engaging and winning the battle for truth.
