Evil Days

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?
I can’t.


One thought on “Evil Days

  1. Hang in there man!! I’ve been there! Just hold firm in your faith and they’ll go away; demons are weak and give up easily. Just keep going, its scary at times, but nonetheless, we’ve got the power of Jesus Christ behind us. In a way, when I was being attacked, I felt that it was also a good thing because I knew that I was doing something good and worthwhile that fits into God’s will. I still get ‘visits’ every now and again, but nothing as extreme as before I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart and kept up believing in Him. If you are met with a lot of resistance, then you’re on the right path!! So hold firm and trust in God that he will give you the strength and endurance to persevere. These little demons are just trying to scare people with a lot of potential into submission. This is where your free-will comes in. Choose God and he’ll protect you. God Bless ya’ bro! and Keep on shredding!
