Spiritual Warfare - Body, Soul and Spirit
There is a battle raging in our world for the control of our minds and lives.
No matter what your personal opinion is, it doesn't change the fact that your life is being influenced and controlled by the physical and spiritual elements you allow into your life.
Every war that is fought has opposing sides. In this matter of spiritual warfare there are two sides which are deadly enemies. Their influence is both in the spirit and physical realms of existence.
There is no involuntary draft in this war, yet all will be recruited and everyone will choose the side they want to be on; everyone will choose which Commander they will serve. There are recruiters, much like in our physical world, who are very motivated to get as many volunteers as they can. There are rules and guidelines which regulate the recruiter's tactics, yet there are some recruiters who are willing and more enthusiastic than others to employing unlawful, hard handed persuasion techniques and lies.
There are recruiters who will take advantage of a person's ignorance and curiosity to get them to come over to their side. They target the many in this world who go through each day blindly, never considering that there is much more to their life than just what meets their eyes; those who totally deny the existence of an ultimate, all powerful Creator: the God who reached down into the dust to form the first body we know as Adam. The unlawful recruiter will use a blend of truth and lies to attract these people's attention and get them to sign-up.
The one thing the recruiters cannot do is force you to join their side. That choice, the choice of which side you will be on, of which Commander you will serve is entirely up to you! ( Isaiah 55:4-5 )
War In Heaven
In order to understand this spiritual warfare, we need to look at the origin of the conflict. Let's take a look at this war from the Biblical perspective. According to the scriptures and teachings there was a horrible war in heaven, the eternal kingdom of Adonai!
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
This war and spiritual conflict came to the earth, threatening the very existence of the earth's inhabitants. This world, our earthly home has become the war's final battleground: this is the fierce battle which is now being fought in the physical and spiritual realms.
The mighty spiritual warriors of both sides fought, and are continuing to fight over and for the people which Adonai created, and called to Himself. We know these warriors as "angels"; the servants of their Commanders: Adonai and Satan. Many years ago when Adonai separated a people from the other inhabitants of the earth and called them to serve Him, the old serpent beguiled Adonai's humans, leading them into rebelling against Adonai's Universal Law: that which we commonly call "Nature", or "Natural Instinct." This deception led to a continuous series of cause and effect events which threatened and now threaten to permanently separate the humans from the Presence of their Creator.
In order to intercede for His creation and keep this world from being destroyed, Adonai wrote His commandments and His Law on tablets of stone, with His own hand, then gave them to His people. We call the top ten of these Divine Statutes of the Universal Law the Ten Commandments. These Commandments are our guides to how we are to live our lives, and fight in this spiritual war.
Adonai's Temple - Command HQ
When Adonai gave His Law to His people Satan was enraged! Satan set out to destroy Adonai's people, attacking them from every side that was physically and spiritually possible. The battle continued to rage, and eventually resulted in the people of Adonai entering into captivity under a brutal pagan Roman government. The priesthood established by Adonai was infiltrated when the Roman rulers assigned Jewish men who were loyal to the Empire to be in authority over the people and priests, subjecting the Levitical Priesthood to their control and influence.
Idolatry entered into the Temple of Adonai, and the Temple was defiled. In the following verses the prophet Ezekiel describes an event when he was taken into the spirit realm and shown the defilement of the Temple.
"And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.  And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.  He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.
 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.  Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.  And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.  So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.  And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.  Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth.
 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger..."
Seeing all these things His people were doing, and knowing the depth of corruption present in His Priesthood and loyal servants greatly grieved Adonai's heart, along with provoking Him to anger. His Law had been turned into a heartless ritual; the spiritual power of His Law had been lost through the priest's disobedience and infiltration. The letter of the Law He had given His people demanded just judgement and punishment, yet Adonai loved His people.
Desiring to win back the hearts and minds of His people to His simple truths, Adonai determined to intercede for them Himself. At the appointed time, He entered into time and manifested Himself in the flesh; taking on a body which He would offer as the final, perfect blood sacrifice which was required by His Law.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.
Victorious Lord - Our Commander
He has become known to the world as Jesus the Christ, but His name in Hebrew is Yeshua: the only begotten Son of Adonai, our God made flesh. As our long awaited for Messiah, Yeshua was obedient to His own Law which required the shedding of blood for the remission of a person's sins. When Yeshua offered Himself up as the final, perfect sacrifice He conquered ALL sin. Thanks to His ultimate self-sacrifice, the victory was won over spiritual death and hell when Yeshua was resurrected from the grave.
As believers and servants of Yeshua, Jesus Christ, we also conquer spiritual death and hell through His victory the moment we accept Him as our only Lord. At that moment He becomes our Commander, and we are enlisted in His army. This gift of eternal life for our souls is FREE and is NOT dependent upon ANY religious establishment or organization. His blood washes us clean and sets us free from the spiritual bondage of sin when we confess, repent of, and turn away from our sins.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
When we accept Yeshua, Jesus Christ as our only Lord and Saviour, our Commander, He will save us from the battles that rage in our lives. He assigns His servants, His angels to protect us. He places His Holy Spirit within us to teach and guide our lives, giving us our "marching orders" each day. This is why it is important to have our lines of communication always open. These lines of communication are very simply stated: prayer.
We Are Multi-dimensional Beings
Fighting A Multi-dimensional War
Spiritual Warfare is a multi-dimensional conflict involving the physical and spirit realms. A well known physicist has recently began to theorize the existence of over ten separate dimensions in this, our world. Even though he is finally catching up to speed he is still outside the learning curve, stuck in his box of physical existence and proofs.
This spiritual conflict is both timeless and contemporary. The affects of this spiritual warfare has influenced our physical existence, our daily lives, and the history of our world; the proof being found in a long historical list of so-called "holy wars," wherein each side fought the other to the death, so they could spread the good news of a Great Creator. Unknown to them, the physical armies were commanded and empowered by unseen forces to annihilate their opponents, and pave the way for the ultimate captivity of God's people. As an example, the Crusades and the Inquisition were tools of murder which were used against anyone who dared to resist the dark power of Roman authority.
Hyper-dimensional Cause and Effect
In the Spirit Realm there is no time, or space. When people have visions from God, their souls are forever changed at that moment when their body bound souls are taken by the hand of God to where ever the message is to be delivered from. Their souls are witnesses to the scenes shown to them, while their spirit bodies/souls are renewed by the Source of all life. At the appointed moment they are returned to their limited physical existence and are again subject to time; fully re-energized by the power of God for the purpose they are called to; with a message they are to deliver. Those who experience visions from God have a calling on their lives to do a specific task, accomplish a certain mission. The vision is often a call to the person to make an important choice in their life.
These three elements of God's existence: body, soul and spirit, are individual, yet form the whole = One. Each element has it's own mind and consciousness, yet are united as the One God and Creator: 3 in 1.
God the Son - Yeshua - Body: Conscious influence
God the Holy Spirit - Soul: Subconscious influence
God the Father - Spirit: Unconscious influence
Our physical beings are also multi-dimensional in that we were created in the image of our Creator: body, soul, and spirit. Each of these elements of our being has it's own mind, or consciousness; energy level and vibratory frequency.
As humans with fleshly bodies (some more than others) we are one part physical, and two parts spiritual. This fact must be considered and remembered by all who enter into spiritual warfare for our personal protection; for when we enter active interaction of our souls and spirits through prayerful, spiritual intercession for others, according to Adonai's Law; when we assist in exorcisms or deliverances of the possessed.
Let's look at each element of our whole being:
Here are 8 very powerful verses from the Bible showing all of us that we are not to be afraid of demons and that we are to directly engage with them if we have to - operating under God's authority and anointing to be able to do so.
To Be Cont..........
More Too Come.........
up the brokenhearted
(shattered in heart or mind),
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release for the prisoners."
