Counsels Of War

Counsels Of War…

In warfare, you don’t appoint a private to fight a general – you appoint a general. So the Book of Ephesians tells us we’re at war with a specific kind of enemy in the spiritual realm.

The English reads “principalities,” but the Greek word is “archay.” An archay is a chief, boss, head, or top ranking power. In a war, an archay is a general. So you have been appointed to fight generals.

What does that make you in God? It makes you the equivalent of a general! That means, in the spiritual realm, by the power of God, you are mighty! It means that in the spiritual realm, you’re a commander.

It means you can’t live as one with no or little authority… as one who is ruled over by sin, or fear, or despair. You’ve been given great authority. And to fail to exercise that authority is a sin.

To obey God, we must fully use the authority He has given us. Therefore, start acting like a general. Start using the authority of the Word, of His name, and of His power. For not only are you on the winning side – you’re a general.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:11-12

When you speak with others about Jesus today, speak with His authority, with His words and with His power, in His name.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
