A Strong Man Armed
(Jesus:) I want to open your eyes and alert you to the fact that the world is growing darker and more dangerous, and not just spiritually. It began in the spirit world, but the evil spirits that roam the Earth affect the physical too.
Now, more than ever, the Enemy walks about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour in any way (1 Peter 5:8). He’s not lying off in the bush somewhere, waiting for you to pass by him. He’s mad and he’s actively hunting for you, looking for an open door, some way to harm your physical life, your spirit, or your possessions.
The Devil knows who you are
The devil knows who you are and where you are, even if all the bad and evil people in the world don’t know. And it’s not difficult for the Devil to inspire those who have already begun living lives of crime and evil to attack those that he points them toward. The evildoers might not know that you’re anything special, but the Devil does‚ and he will try to use these pawns of his to do physical damage to you. I warn you of this because I promised I would always be faithful to My servants. This is an area that a lot of people don’t think much about until something happens to them. So I am being a faithful Protector and reminding you of this area, asking you to heighten your guard through prayer and personal vigilance, and to keep a stronger connection with the spirit world.
This merging of the physical and spiritual worlds works both ways. Just as evil men are more easily inspired by the Enemy to do evil, so can you be more easily inspired by Me and My good spirits–and part of what we can do for you is to be your early-warning system, warning and guiding you away from trouble spots, and giving you supernatural discernment that can help you not to fall into the Enemy’s traps.
The primary way Satan fights you will always be in your minds and hearts, as nothing is more devastating than for the fortress of your heart to be subverted from within. So while most of you keep your attention on the spiritual battles, the Devil will often try what he considers to be the “back door” of the physical realm where you’re not always as careful, watchful, or on guard.
