We were born into a spiritual war. This war was being waged before we were born, it is an ancient war. Yet, there are times in this war when it is covert and it is not as identifiable, then there are times it is overt and very obvious. When the war becomes overt, it manifests through people in a variety of ways. Some people get violent and take to the streets, others get vocal and out of their mouth comes the evidence of a spirit they may or may not know they are of. We have entered into the overt or obvious nature of this war. With the release of the move Come Out in Jesus Name, this is one of many manifestations of this war going public, no longer being private. With the agenda’s being pushed publicly that once used to be hidden, it is just more evidence the war become obvious. We all know there has been a shift from the private to the public as it pertains to this war.
Since the war is public now, we must be dressed in the armor of God, for the war can sucker punch you at any moment. The shield of faith is needed in this hour to extinguish the fiery darts of the evil one. The sword of the spirit, which is the word of God needs to be the narrative of your heart, mind and soul, for this is a words war. Finally, testing the spirits (1 John 4) is critical in this time, for most people do not know of what spirit they are, and it is important to separate the person from the spirit that has attached itself to them. John said it this way, “You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
The enemy is seeking to divide people by using spirits of the likes in this hour that is obvous, don’t throw people away, but also don’t succumb to the spirit that is in operation through them. Test the spirits, don’t trash the person. This war is going to be increasingly visible and we must fight with 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 warfare, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” The reveal is in order to heal, wake up and go to war, the enemy is being cast out in Jesus name!
