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 (Ephesians 6:12-NLT).
We need to remember that the things that are going in our nation today have a spiritual side to them. Behind natural happenings is the spiritual world. Natural things came from spiritual things. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible (Hebrews 11:3).
Elisha and his servant were surrounded by an enemy army, but in the spirit realm, the angels of God were there to protect them: So one night the king of Aram sent a great army with many chariots and horses to surround the city. When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the young man cried to Elisha.”Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” The Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire (2 Kings 6:14-17).
While Daniel was praying for his nation, and angel appeared to him and told him that he had been sent from God with the answer to his pray but had been hindered: Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees. And the man said to me, “Daniel, you are very precious to God, so listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling. Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia (Dan 10:10-13 – NLT).
Demonic forces in the unseen spirit realm are currently seeking the demise of our nation politically, socially, and economically. We the church of Jesus Christ have authority over these forces of darkness. Let us NOW rise up in faith and in the power of the Holy Spirit and command them to stop in their maneuvers and operations against our country. And then pray for the awakening power of God to manifest in our country and bring the masses to repentance! NOW is the time we must act!
