We’ve all experienced those wintertime storms where it may be 35 degrees or more and yet snowing. Or those times when it might be 30 degrees or less than that and raining. What’s controlling these variances in temperature? What makes us experience an ice storm or hail storm is mainly because of two fronts of warm and cold air meeting. It can bring thunderstorms or spawn tornadoes. The heavens have been declared as a great place where God sits on His throne. Where angels pass back and forth constantly, a place where Satan and one-third of the angels were cast out of. What goes on in the atmosphere above us affects us here on earth in many ways.
There is a spiritual battle that affects not the weather but it affects our lives on how we live here on earth determining what is to happen with our lives for eternity. If the truth would register more with the souls of the people, we would recognize that our lives are more spiritual than physical. Yet it is how we handle life physically that helps determine where we will end up spiritually. Spiritual demonic forces (witchcraft) and spiritual warfare are real, even more so than we generally think about. Ephesians 6:12 says, “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.”
What is going on today is a great influx of spiritual warfare, more than ever before. It used to be that the dark side of things stayed on the back streets, but today it has become bold and stands in our front streets daring Christians to try to stop it. Many people are ignorant to this. There is great turmoil going on today in the heavenlies. The Devil is no match for Jesus and he knows it. Believe me, there is no better place to be right now than under the protection of God’s hands. There is a very real battle going on for the souls of men and women, boys, and girls, all over the world. Soon now God’s going to put an end to the satanic forces that are trying to destroy us. If you belong to Jesus, you’re in no better hands; but if you’re not, your eternal life is in jeopardy. How do you really stand with God?
