26 DOP: VICTORY OVER THE PRINCIPALITIES OF THE DEMONIC DAY 6 Written by Linda A. Knowles

Executive Director of Thread of Hope



For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,

against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness,

against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12



We know flesh and blood are, mostly and usually, symbolic of weakness. However, the unseen rulers are talking of the demonic world, the unseen world of evil, which is a spiritual matter and not one of flesh and blood such as we are. Satan and his angels should never be taken lightly, and though their power is limited as to what they can and cannot do, they are not mere mortal man. They are our adversaries and our opponents, and we should never underestimate them. Satan is the Enemy of our Soul (Mankind's Enemy, Matthew 13:39), and he is called the Serpent of Old (Revelation 12:9). He is also called The god of This World and The god of This Age (John 14:30, 1 John 5:19, 2 Corinthians 4:4), the Day-Star (Isaiah 14:12), the Devil (Matthew 4:1), The Tempter (Matthew 4:3), The Evil One (Matthew 13:19), and the Accuser of the Brethren (Revelation 12:10).
