There are two sides involved in the Spiritual Warfare that is going on in our World
In this Battle there are no Neutrals, for you are on one side or the other!
On the one side is God who is infinitely benevolent (perfectly well meaning and kindly) and those Souls who were lost but are now saved through Christ’s powerful and perfect Gospel. Those people on this side are supported by the Heavenly Angels of God – Guardian Angels.
On the other side are the unconverted sinners who are supremely selfish ( lacking consideration for other people; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure.); so that they are radically opposed to God. Their committal to the gratification of their appetites and propensities is known in Bible language as the “carnal mind”, or, as in the margin, “the minding of the flesh,” which is enmity (a state or feeling of active opposition or hostility) against God. Those people on this side are supported by the evil forces in the Spirit World – led by Satan the Devil.
Evidence shows that even members of the Christian religion can be on the side that opposes God, as shown by how they try to quench the Holy Spirit of God and refuse to help Christ’s chosen ministers. In short, they do not have the Fruit of the Holy Spirit: Love. Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control. They are apposed to God in the battle of Spiritual Warfare. They claim to love Jesus, but they refuse to obey his teachings.
This enmity (a state or feeling of active opposition or hostility against God) is voluntary, and must be overcome, if at all, by the Word of God, made effectual by the teaching of the Holy Spirit. They must give themselves totally to the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Followers of Jesus in Philippi:
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Those on God’s side kneel.
Those on Satan’s side only pretend to kneel
My ministry is not to treat Christ’s enemies as this world would treat them. No, but to copy the perfect example of my Lord and Saviour. For he commands me to die to myself that he may live in me.
To get the Lost Souls to do this is no easy matter. However, and this is so important dear Reader, if God can save me who was once a Lost Soul and is now a weak Disciple, he can do it for you.
Praise be to God and to his Son the Lord Jesus Christ and to the Holy Spirit of God that makes salvation of our Souls possible. Not only for that, but for keeping his Children on the winning side.
