12/8(Sun): Expelling darkness
Scripture: “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 6:12)
Paul stated clearly that, we are struggling against the spiritual forces, but not against flesh and blood. Therefore, our real enemy is Satan and evil spirits, not the government, nor those people with different political views with us. Those “rulers, authorities, power of this dark world, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” are some evil forces in the spiritual realm, which affects the city and people’s heart.
1. Identify who is our real enemy, which is not the government, nor the people from a certain political party, not even the pro-governmentalist or anti-governmentalist people. Our true enemy is “all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice”(Ephesians 4:31). These enemies live not only inside others, but also inside us. Please confess this sin. In the name of Jesus, we cut every connection with the enemies and bind the evil spirits. We release kindness and compassion, and forgiveness for each other.
2. People always have different opinion towards social affairs. We all have different political views, so it is normal when we do not share the same opinion, we do not have to pursue for uniformity in opinion. Please pray for ourselves so we can learn to judge only things but not people. Pray for the relationships with one another while we all have different political stances.
