This is going to be a different post that really has no substance.
I am searching right now; I do not have answers that I wish I had.
Life is simple, but incredibly hard and overwhelming most of the time.
It’s true, I believe in spiritual warfare: angels and demons.
I started thinking about this topic more so recently and have a question:
In Matthew 7:22-23 it says:
“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
Woah! I’ve tried breaking this down to understand it and here is where I end:
Those people DID prophecy, cast out demons and performed miracles.
They did those things in the name of Jesus Christ; Christ did not dispute their claims.
So does that mean:
Demons cower from the name of Christ on unbelievers lips?
I believe that the name of Christ is that powerful.
His name has shaken the earth time and time again… and will continue to do so.
I don’t understand how demons don’t know the difference between real and false prophets.
I have been told time and time again that Satan attacks those who are the biggest threats;
The ones that have a heart that wants to seek the Will of God and love Him.
I would like to believe this because I feel like I’m under attack and that would be good.
I really don’t know how far demons can see into our lives.
Can they see our hearts or only see the fruit of our lives?
I don’t understand the relationship between the two worlds and how they connect.
This is something I wonder about and feel tugging at my heart.
I see spiritual battles all around me and know it is not to be taken lightly.
Maybe I’m making it all up to believe that my life is more exciting than it is:
Blaming all the bad things and heartache I have, on something other than my choices.
It would be so much easier to say that this is all just one gigantic demonic attack.
Who can argue about something they can’t explain?
