First thing for both non-Christians and Believers to understand is that there are no guarantee or free ride facing storms. Regardless of storms that involve health, families, finance or ministries, all face some uncomfortable travel through life. It is possible that some reading this right now face a problem or thinking of giving up. This is not good because all their doing is changing the storm, not leaving it. Evil knows God’s Word is our “key to victory”, so fight back using both the Word and spiritual armor given us and attack back as Bible says: “my brethren, be strong in Lord and power of His might and put on the whole armor of God”, (Eph 6:10-18).
Remember you do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, and rulers of the dark. Take the whole armor of God and stand your ground with His truth. Keep your breastplate of righteousness and shoes of gospel taking your shield of faith, helmet of salvation and sword of Spirit (Bible) expecting victory, not defeat (Col 2:15). We are the ones that have spiritual power, while devil left with lies to fight with. Yes, God’s Word is our key to victory.
Today, those serving God, singing, teaching, and preaching are also living among the captives. Not lost, just living not aware of it. Also, many church pews are filled with Saints living among the captives not aware. We are the ones that have spiritual power, while devil was left with lies to fight with, thus, God’s Word is our key to victory.
First they need to be delivered or come out from among the captives called, the world systems. So what is holding good people captive? Matthew 15:6,9 answer this questions: “you have made the commandments of God of no effect by your traditions. In vain you worship and teach doctrines of men. Yes, they were being told that they had replaced the Word with words learned from each other, meaning man’s words became equal to Gods. This is called off track. Easy to back on track, just get back on God’s Word.
Today in our modern world many good people are among the captives, not knowing it. This means both Christians and non-Christians are making wrong choices that place them in a half world and half Godly kingdom. The book of Revelation refers to these as those in robes with spots and wrinkles missing the rapture, (Rev 7:14). The good news is that now God is opening the Heavens with visions throughout churches while traditions are crumbling The walls of traditions are not high enough, nor strong enough to stand against the spiritually armed churches with truth WORD.
