Since the fall of man, all nature is under the control of Satan. This is why we see so much chaos in the world. The enemy infiltrates every area of our lives, for he seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. Those who have spiritual eyes can see beyond the superficial. We, humans, get trapped in his evil design, and fight each other rather than love each other.
God has always planned that we should love each other. The enemy turned this around to hate and fear. Now Jesus came to redeem us from the wicked ways of the enemy by destroying his works. He did this by sacrificing His life on the Cross. This was the solution that could reverse the plans of the enemy. However, although we were redeemed from the curse in our spirit, our soul still faces enemies that we need to fight daily in our lives. This is where we need to know who our enemy is and how to fight him.
Your Real Enemy
Most are unaware that the real enemy of our soul is Satan. He hides behind a curtain and manipulates people to do his dirty works. He does not fight fair. We therefore must be ruthless with the enemy. God has provided us with a way of escape. His Name is Jesus. He will fight for us if we let Him. God has given us free will to decide who we will choose to follow. We either follow our carnal desires or God. We are saved to be free from sin and the power of sin. But our members are not totally free from our sinful ways and desires. The enemy finds ways to tempt us and keep us captive to his ways. What can we do?
We can surrender our members to Jesus. His Holy Spirit resides in our spirit. His angels fight for us. We need to surrender our will to Him. He then fights for us. We are empowered to fight the enemy of our soul and cast him out. And we have to be ruthless with our body and mind in choosing His way rather than our way. We are in a war and the war is against the enemy of our soul. God has provided us with a way of escape. Will we choose His way? Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Him. Today, choose God’s way and be free from the enemy of your soul.
