We Are at War Not Peace

We Are Not at Peace but in the Midst of a Pressing Spiritual War.

We are at War

For our conflict is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities, and with those in authority, and with the possessors of this dark world, and with the evil spirits that are beneath Heaven.

Ephesians 6:12 (HRB)

In this and all Food for Thoughts I recommend you read the Scripture(s) provided and the entire chapter they are from to obtain more insight.

Definition of Imperceptible:

  • Not perceptible by a sense or by the mindextremely slight, gradual, or subtle.
  • “Invisible objects cannot be seen but can be discovered by other senses except for vision. Imperceptible objects cannot be detected by any of your senses.” Example: Wind or air is invisible, but you can feel it, and it can carry smells on it. On the other hand, imperceptible things can not be detected at all.

The Unseen Spiritual War

The world is engulfed in an unseen spiritual war that operates beyond our visual senses, but its invisibility is not the entirety of the matter. This war is more imperceptible, meaning it operates subtly and evades all human senses. Despite its subtle nature, this conflict is loud, violent, and destructive yet rages around us daily without humanity realizing it (2 Kings 6:15-17). This war consists of countless small and large battles fought, each striving to gain control of our minds, bodies, and souls with the ultimate goal of bringing about the destruction of the Kingdom of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄.

Wicked Entities

Satan commands his army of fallen angels who are determined to kill, steal from, and destroy humans. This army also includes cruel and vicious demons who aim to possess, influence, cause chaos, and bring illness. More often than not, these wicked forces are camouflaged and work through people, religions, organizations, governments, businesses, etc. The presence of these evil forces and their actions often escape our perception due to the veil of humanity they operate behind, especially for those of us lacking a 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 provided wisdom or spiritual discernment (James 3:17, Daniel 2:21–22).

One example would be gangsta rap music’s detrimental impact in the 80s and beyond. Evil spirits provided wicked words that flowed smoothly over addictive beats. It hid behind record labels and artists but resulted in significant increases in crime, incarceration, and death among African Americans. Whether you notice these evil forces or not, these fallen angels and demons constantly work towards our downfall. We must recognize the significance of these wicked entities and spiritual battles and not overlook or disregard the spiritual reality.

Existence of Demonic Forces

Paul warned us in Ephesians 6:10-20, and Yahshua showed us countless encounters with demons during His ministry, confirming the undeniable existence of these forces (Luke 11:14, Luke 4:33–35, Matthew 12:23, Mark 5:1-17, Mark 9:20-29). Additionally, we have the accounts of Satan and other angels falling from the Shamayim (Heavens) (Revelation 12:9, Isaiah 14:12-15, Jude 1:6, Revelation 9:14).

Battles Lost Before We Knew They Started

Many of our battles have already been lost through the facades of normalcy, syncretism, acculturation, and assimilation (Romans 12:2). The world system(s) that produces the rebellious popular cultures and manners of thinking has already conformed many to unrighteous ways. The impact of this conformity has extended beyond nonbelievers to affect even those who identify or claim to be believers. Unfortunately, minimal to no opposition against conformity was encountered then, and clearly, no resistance is found today, which is evident in churches worldwide.

Definition of Inured:

  • Accustomed to something, especially something unpleasant
  • “If you are inured to something unpleasant, you have become used to it so that it no longer affects you.”

Normalization of wickedness has spread like wildfire and will continue to spread if left unchecked. Non-believers, along with believers, have become inured, and our minds have been seared and desensitized by the ways of the world. We think we are winning and gaining progress because everything around us looks good and normal to us. But in reality, we have forfeited and lost ground in the spiritual war, and things couldn’t be worse.

Were they ashamed when they made an abomination? They were not at all ashamed, nor did they know to blush. So they shall fall among those who fall. At the time I visit them, they shall be cast down, says 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄.

Jeremiah 6:15 (HRB)

In this and all Food for Thoughts I recommend you read the Scripture(s) provided and the entire chapter they are from to obtain more insight.

Three examples of normalcy! Are you winning or losing?

  • Taking the name of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 in vain: The name of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 has been changed and altered in His Scriptures by man, disregarded, misused, and brought to nothingness. 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 declared His Name over and over in His Scripture just like in Isaiah 42:8 and commands that His glory and praise not be given to another. “I am 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄; that is My name; and I will not give My glory to another, nor My praise to engraved images.” In Isaiah 52:6 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 says that His people shall know His name. Some say His name and His Son’s name don’t matter. Are we winning or losing?
  • Abortion: The devil takes an estimated 40-50 Million babies yearly through murder worldwide; that’s about 125k a day. The Bible says that 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 knew us before he formed us in the belly (Jeremiah 1:5). 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 never commanded the murder of innocent children; He never even thought of telling us to do such a thing. Jeremiah 19:5). Are we winning or losing?
  • LGBTQ+: Having a same-sex relationship and deciding what sex you are regardless of your actual biological makeup. Were we created man for woman and woman for man? Did 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 make a mistake when He created a man as a man and a woman as a woman? Are we winning or losing?

We Are Not in This War Alone!

14. And he sent horses and chariots there, and a heavy army. And they came in by night and surrounded the city.

15. And the servant of the man of The Elohim rose up early and went out. And, behold, an army was surrounding the city, and horses and chariots. And his young man said to him, Alas, my master! What shall we do?

16. And he said, Do not fear, for those with us are more than those with them.

17. And Elisha prayed and said, I beg You, O 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄, open his eyes so that he may see. And 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 opened the eyes of the young man. And he looked, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elishu’a (Elisha).

2 Kings 6:15-17 (HRB)

Divine Protection and Authority

𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 has not left us to fend for ourselves. 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 has given us more than enough to withstand the wickedness of satan and the army he controls. First and foremost, He left His Set Apart Ruach (Holy Spirit) for those who would receive it (John 14:15-30, John 16:7). Secondly, I am reminded of the words that Yahusha spoke to His disciples in Luke 10:18-20. Yahusha said: “I saw Satan falling out of Heaven as lightning! Behold, I give authority to you to tread on snakes and scorpions and all the power of the enemy, and nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the demons submit to you. But rather rejoice that your names are written in Heaven.”

Adorn the Whole Armor of YAH!

He also gave us armor to put on for these battles. Sha’ul (Paul) encourages us to “be made powerful in our Master and in the might of His strength. Put on all the armor of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄, for you to be able to stand against the strategies of the Devil (Satan). Take up all of the whole armor of Elohim that you may be able to resist the evil one, and being prepared you shall prevail. Then stand firm, “having girded your loins about with truth” and having put “on the breastplate of righteousness,” and defend your feet with the preparation of the good news of peace. Above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. Also, put on “the helmet of salvation,” and take the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄; through all prayer and petition, praying at all times in the Spirit, and watching to this same thing with all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:10-11, 13-18).

Angels Encamped All Around Us

Lastly, 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄 sends His angels to cover us and help us in our struggles, battles, and spiritual warfare. (Matthew 18:10, 13:41, Acts 12:13-15, Psalm 91:11-12, 34:4-7, Hebrews 1:14, 13:2)

What Are You Doing?

  • Are you at war with the devil and his army, or have you been lulled to sleep by the satanic lullabies playing all around the world?
  • Have you been pulled into the false belief that all you need to do is believe and be a good person, all the while living contrary to what the Bible actually says?
  • Have you been lulled into a false sense of peace and an attitude of surrender, telling yourself if you can’t beat them, join them?
  • Have you fallen under the witchcraft of lies spewed out by charismatic speakers and false prophets who are so smart and have so many followers that they can’t be wrong?
  • Are you fighting back through studying the word, praying, fasting, rejecting the ways of the world, and witnessing like a soldier of 𐀉𐀄𐀅𐀄
  • Has your mind been seared to believe and think things like that’s how things are supposed to be, as long as they don’t bother me with it, and it really isn’t my problem?


You have been under attack since the day you were born. The devil and his demons are not going to stop. They want us to be dumb, deaf, and blind through normalcy. So “Because of this, take up all of the whole armor of Elohim that you may be able to resist the evil one, and being prepared you shall prevail” (Eph 6:13).
