Quote from the book, "Lucifer Exposed."
Paul said that the things that are seen are fleeting; the
things that are not seen are eternal. In other words, our sensory world is passing away, and therefore only partly real because it does not endure. (See 2 Corinthians 4:18.) But the spiritual world that we cannot see, that we cannot perceive with our senses, is the true reality. It alone will endure.
So, when we come to the theme of invisible enemies, we have to begin by making a mental adjustment. We have to say to ourselves, “I’m not going to limit myself only to the things that I can see and touch and hear and taste; I’m going to open my heart and mind to the revelation that’s recorded in Scripture through the Holy Spirit, and to those things that are of a different world.”
Paul prayed that God would give the Ephesian Christians a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. (See Ephesians 1:17.) I pray the same for us: that God may grant us wisdom and revelation as we open our hearts to His Word,
because we are dealing with matters that are made known only through revelation.
What we are going to deal with, in essence, are two opposing kingdoms at war with one another. But they are not natural kingdoms such as Britain or Sweden or the United States. They are invisible spiritual kingdoms. One is the kingdom of God and
the other is the kingdom of Satan.
