Can you remember the popular game called Mortal Combat? It’s called such because it’s a fight between two mortal men. But today we will be talking about the the concept of fight of the immortals. The immortals are spirits and of course I want you to know that the real you is your spirit man. You’re not mortal but an immortal.
We as spirit men have an enemy which is immortal too, infact our fight is not physical at all but spiritual. We orchestrate our fighting styles from the spirit realm.
In this first part of the article, I want to open your eyes to the realization of the fact that enemies exist and in the subsequent parts, we will dive more into how to deal with them.
- Abrahamic Covenant
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Do you notice that this covenant says that there are so many people that will or that are blessing you ….them that bless you….. but you have one person somewhere that’s cursing you …… Curse him that curse you……? If we are entitled to the blessing of Abraham then we must register it in our hearts that an enemy exists.
- A soldier’s mentality
2 Timothy 2:3-4
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
The Bible likens us to a soldier that’s preparing for war in this verse. When you hear about war, the first thing that will come to your mind is a fight between two parties. This should register in your mind that we as believers have an enemy and must always be alert to wage war against him.
- The Parable of the wheat and tares
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
This parable points to the kingdom of heaven and of course who are the citizens of the kingdom? Believers of course. When this man slept, the enemy who had been looking for a means of access into this man then had his way.
Who is the enemy of the believers?
Watch out for more light in the next part.
Are you enlightened by this? Type “I’m an immortal.”
