If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
Knowing the enemy enables you to TAKE THE OFFENSIVE.
Knowing yourself enables you to STAND ON THE DEFENSIVE.
Among Spiritual Warriors, it is known that:
Attack is the secret of defense and;
Defense is the planning of attack.
This quick note is for those on their way of discovering The Kingdom of Heaven; also to encourage those who have already discovered The Kingdom of Heaven.
As you know, you must know your enemies, because once you can identify who your enemies are, then will you be able to fight them.
To fight your enemies in this BLOODLESS WAR (spiritual war), you must come to know 'a bit' about how your enemies FIGHT YOU.
Let me now tell you a bit about 'these forces': [POWERS, PRINCIPALITIES AND AUTHORITIES]:
First, this is what Wisdom says: 'Those who hate me love death.'
As you know, another definition of Wisdom is 'Fear of The Lord'.
Understand, these forces are very jealous of human beings, because victory has been handed to us through Jesus Christ.
(Also, if they (these forces) feared The Lord, they would never have Killed The Lord.)
So, these forces, not fearing God, means THEY DO NOT HAVE WISDOM OR THEY ARE NOT FIGHTING WITH WISDOM.
Christ 'finished off' their 'love affair with Death', by conquering Death.
So, they are now divided and are running around 'like chickens without a head'.
If we listen further to what Wisdom says, which goes:
'Mine are counsel and resourcefulness'
'I am understanding, COURAGE is mine'
We can then conclude the following:
1. These forces HAVE NO COUNSEL. [ They fight without thinking ahead ]
2. These forces ARE NOT RESOURCEFUL. [ They are not very clever ]
3. These forces HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING.
4. These forces HAVE NO COURAGE. [ This is why they resort to deceit ]
This is why I say, come up and join this fight, for Jesus Christ has done the most difficult part for us!
Do you know what happens to a HAUGHTY spirit when a HUMAN BEING kicks its butt?
Human beings are sick of their crap and WE ARE FIGHTING BACK!
When we are done with this war: THERE WILL BE NO MORE PRIDE BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.
