For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: -2 Corinthians 10:3
*(CEV) We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world. Ephesians 6:12
Our World (Natural)/Flesh
Consists of flesh and soul or what the Bible calls carnal(ity)
a.)Emotions, attachments, weaknesses, strengths….HUMAN NATURE
b.) Inventions, technology, entertainment…..these things are made from and for flesh.
All of these things make up what is around us in the perspective of the natural realm. Paul is teaching us the DIFFERENCE. Even though we LIVE in this realm as born again believers we have been birthed into the spiritual world or realm.
Light and Darkness
I.) Light– Kingdom of God/Holy Spirit and the Angels
(This is the Kingdom we become citizens of by faith.)
**1Th_5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
(CEV) The Scriptures say, “God commanded light to shine in the dark.” Now God is shining in our hearts to let you know that his glory is seen in Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6
PURPOSE- To illuminate and reveal God through Christ. Christ is GOD’s face of glory in flesh. Truth and love, grace and power, hope and strength! Might, judgement, ALL of it is revealed and brought to MANIFESTATION by way of LIGHT; AND JESUS IS THAT LIGHT.
II.) Darkness– Lucifer’s Domain/Demons and Imps (Rulers of darkness)
(CEV) He has always been a murderer and a liar. There is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own, and everything he says is a lie. Not only is he a liar himself, but he is also the father of all lies. John 8:44b
PURPOSE- Deception & destruction. Satan is jealous of the human race. He is jealous of God’s attention and love. So he sows lies to misplace us, and consequently to destroy us.
The Kingdom of Light is the only thing can stop and EXPOSE the kingdom of darkness. This is why Paul says…”We are not just fighting humans.”
