The True Civil Warfare
Ephesians 6:12 – For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
While the vast majority see only physical conflicts, naming each other as enemies in the civil unrest, the deeper cause lies beneath the surface. Until the deeper issues, the deeper principalities that fuel hatred and selfishness rather than love and selflessness, are resolved, the fruit of violence and destruction will continue to bloom.
The seeds behind the manifestation are found in the mentalities and attitudes that lack love, empathy, and compassion. Of a nation of supposed Christians, the lack of tolerance and eagerness to engage in aggression are overwhelming. This does NOT represent the way of Yehsua, for if we shall be of Christ, let us be! The people are tired and fed up, and on all sides of the issues, frustration is at its peak, so let those of us who ARE in understanding of these deeper issues, these principalities and powers, stand in the spiritual gap to quell the chaos and war against the spiritual wickedness!
