”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.” – Ephesians 6:12
Are you facing unexplainable trials and challenges in your life and business? Are you feeling overwhelmed by the daily trials of life and business? Are you aware that you are at war?
When someone running to become president of a country wins the elections, in preparation for them to take office, they begin to get access to highly classified information about the threats facing the nation; information that the public may not be fully aware off. Information that if many knew, they would live with fear each day. This information is kept from the public as an attempt to not bring fear and panic to the citizens and ensure that daily life is not disrupted. Good governments work 24 hours a day to ensure their citizens are not terrorized and are therefore able to plan their future, invest in the local economy, have children, and enjoy daily life. If many knew what their government really knew, they would live in fear. This however sometimes creates a false perception of peace and safety. The lack of civilian awareness of the threats facing them every day creates complacency which can be personally harmful. Before 9/11, Americans felt very safe and secure. Terrorist attacks only happened in other countries. We all thought America was the safest country in the world, but 9/11 reminded us that there are people in the dark plotting every day to kill us and destroy our way of life even at the risk of destroying their own lives. There are children being raised with one single purpose: destroy America or any other country in Europe. I was recently in Israel and despite being in a bad neighborhood with real threats on every side, it was one of the safest places on earth for one single reason: they were fully aware of the threats facing them and every citizen was informed and prepared for war at any time. They live defensively and on the offense.
