There are only two divisions in the Universe and one is light and the other is darkness. Everything we say or do reflects the influences of the spirit world. We are either on God‘s side or we are on the devil’s side. We see this in Marxism versus individual choices. We see it in personal discipline opposite uncontrolled conduct. The entire music realm reflects the values of Holy Scripture versus the valueless and wild emotions of the flesh. Our world is a spiritual world and everything has a spiritual dimension.
The Bible is clear that Jesus Christ created everything in this Universe for His glory. “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:16-18) There are no entities or intelligent creatures except those spoken of clearly in the Bible. Every unholy angel was holy and pure when God created them. They are still religious and strong but now the religion is false and their strength is devoted to Lucifer who rules them.
Jesus plainly stated that He was present when these dark rebellious angels were removed from the realms of the holy. “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:18-20) These fallen angels are now demons and devils and they are organized to fight against God and the Holy Angels. The war in the heavens above us is a constant engagement. The angels of God literally protect the Universe from Satan’s dominion. Every time you hear someone talking about the dominions of this earth before Jesus returns, they are on the devil’s team.
We encounter the same demons and devils on earth that the angels encounter in the heavens. These angels are perfectly ready to aid in our fight and we need them without a doubt. Apostle Paul stated our struggle clearly in Holy Scripture. “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-13) Evil powers are paranormal and we are limited flesh. Our battles are indeed spiritual and we must learn total trust in God’s weapons in Scripture and by the Holy Ghost and angels.
Jesus has totally won in the world of spiritual warfare. As He faces the devil in His impending crucifixion He stated, “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.” (John 12:31) A short time later He said, “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:30-31) He was ready to face Lucifer head-on and give Him a fatal wound. John stated, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (I John 3:8) Angels are not independent but totally given to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. They move about in perfect harmony as the “Lord of Saboath” leads them. They obey Christ perfectly and move in the wake of the Holy Ghost. Nothing has excited me as knowing if I will walk in the Spirit and live under the authority of Jesus Christ, angels will minister to me and for me. Apostle Paul was strong in connecting a Holy Ghost filled minister to angels.
Here are exciting words from Paul. “And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.” (Hebrews 1:7) Many times through the years I have been attacked by evil spirits and evil people. I especially feel sorry for those persons that join these spirits in trying to destroy me or any servant of God. The Apostle said, “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14) We are in a spiritual war and we must learn spiritual warfare. Living in the flesh and warring after the flesh is defeat every time.
