Of course there are situations in battles or causes, where it seems impossible for most of us to select a "side," due to the fact that both sides seem ambiguous. I would say those situations are more common when dealing with moral or ethical issues as opposed to actual physical wars.
We have just mentioned some very real, visible enemies that have truly existed. To say our enemies are physical in nature, sounds like a redundant statement to most. However, to say we have an invisible, very real enemy, would sound like sheer nonsense to others.
Well, no matter how much we may not believe that reality, it is true. You may have heard of him, known by many names, Abaddon, Accuser, Adversary, Apollyon, Beast, Beelzebub, Dragon, Father of Lies, Deceiver, King of Tyre, Serpent In The Garden, Dragon, Devil, Prince of the Power of the Air, Rulers of Darkness, to name a few, best known as Satan or Lucifer.
There are Christians, who are afraid, they refuse to acknowledge that this invisible enemy is real and refuse to believe that there is a spiritual battle raging against us, 24/7. As believers, we believe the Bible is God's infallible Word, so for anyone who doubts this reality. Please, read His Word. We should not obsess or fear our enemy, but we are not to ignore him. In fact, we have very clear direction from God about what to do.
The Bible clearly states: Ephesians 6:12 - "For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places."
1Peter 5:8 "Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."
C. S. Lewis writes about spiritual warfare, in his book called The Screw Tape Letters: "There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight."
It is with this in mind, that we want to share the links to an in depth study, presented in video format, called Know Your Enemy, produced by a fellow in Scotland named Mark Fairley. We "stumbled" upon the series, when researching the subject of the French Revolution and it's relation to the Illuminati. (Do the research, and you learn that it is all true: Illuminati, Freemasonry and the New World Order )
Intrigued by the first few ten to fifteen minute segments, we were hooked and just watched all 10+ hours of this intriguing series, in only two days! Because this study is so extensive, we are planning on presenting entries for each subject as the documentary progresses, hoping to expound and study further. Click here for the full playlist of the "Know Your Enemy" As Christians for more than twenty years, we thought we knew the enemy's basic strategies. We were very wrong, this series contains facts and insights that opened our eyes even wider, learning some very key points about Satan's strategy beginning from the inception of evil, Satan's rebellion and the common thread all the way through history, until now. The producer, presenter Mr.Fairley, clearly has devoted much prayer and time in researching and producing this presentation "Exploring the New World Order from a Christian perspective."
Fear Not and Trust Him
Luke 10:18 NIV - He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
Acts 26:17-18 I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'
Romans 16:19-20 NIV - Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
What we choose to believe, doesn't make the the truth any less truthful.
Ephesians 6:13 - Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
