Spiritual Warfare

        The battle between good and evil started at the beginning of time. Since humans have had knowledge and free will we have had the ability to choose between what is good and what is bad. We try to deny the truth but in our hearts we know when something is wrong. 

        God wants us to do good. He wants us to be the best we can be. To be healthy and kind, to have love in our lives, that is what it means to be close to God. He knows we are not perfect and we never could be. Don’t judge yourself for we have already been judged. We have all been found to be sinners. Imperfect. But we can try to be good. 

        God sent us Jesus as a way to the light. He knew we would fail alone so God sent his one and only son as a perfect gift to the world. The gift of salvation and the ability to concour death. Because Christ rose from the grave we will also be risen, into heaven and the presence of God. All you have to do is trust in that and believe.

       We cannot be saved by our works alone. We need Jesus in our lives to do spiritual warfare on our behalf. Why? Because of the devil and his itty bitty little demons. 

        I saved this image from the Seattle Asian Art Museum yesterday to share the next time I wrote about demons. I really loved how this demon was depicted so small and in such a weak position. 

  

       Here is another image of this itty bitty little devil. The mask is about real life size to give you an idea of how small he really is. You could squash him under your shoe. 

       My husband told be just by saying, “I am covered in the blood of Jesus Christ!” Has the power to protect you from all evils. There is power in His name. Nothing can stop Him that comes from God. He will return one day and on that day we will rejoice. We Win!
