Matthew 12- Spiritual Warfare

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Matthew 12:43-45

As the Bible says “ A natural man can’t understand spiritual things “ (1 Corinthians 2:14) As we look at the scriptures today, you can’t comprehend what is happening here unless you are seeing it through spiritual eyes. Many people, even Christians today, don’t believe in the supernatural world, they don’t believe in Angels or Demons, they don’t believe they have a soul, so how can they comprehend what Jesus is teaching here now?

The supernatural realm is just as real as the natural world, demons are actively working all around you trying to destroy your soul. When we look around at this world today, you have to wonder how there is so much evil? How are people this depraved? It’s because they are under demonic influence. The Bible says “Satan is like a roaring lion looking to devour you” (1 Peter 5:8) If you deny the existence of Satan and his demons, they will devour you and pull your soul down to Hell with them. We are all in a Spiritual Warfare (Ephesians 6) we are not fighting against flesh and blood, we are fighting against the demonic forces of Satan

Jesus tells us “When demons leave a person, they come back with seven more demons even more wicked than the first” Christ is warning us to “Stay Alert” you are in a spiritual warfare. We need to stay in prayer, we need to stay in the Word of God, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Neglect of practicing these things will leave you as a lamb to the slaughter. The world is so depraved, because they are not only under the influence of demons, they are filled with demons. Many non saved people are possessed with demons and don’t even realize it

This is why we must become Born Again (John 3:3) Jesus said “Unless you are Born Again , you can’t see the Kingdom of Heaven” You need to be baptized and sealed with the Holy Spirit. You need to be regenerated from your sinful self, as we stated earlier the natural man can’t comprehend spiritual things. You can’t know God without the Holy Spirit

Failure to heed these warnings not only will leave you dead in your sins (Ephesians 2) but also leave you to be devoured by Satan and his demons. The spiritual war for your soul is real, Heaven is real, Hell is real, Satan and demons are real, you must become Born Again and get the Armor of God (Ephesians 6) on to stand against Satan, Amen!
