Default Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Warfare

What do we know?
Luke 22:31-32 (KJV)
31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

This verse has always been chilling to me, as well as encouraging.
Spiritual Warfare is real and often minimized and dismissed as something that doesn't happen today. How can anyone look around at this world today and NOT believe that Spiritual Warfare is real.

Because of the following post on another thread and many others like it lately, it should be obvious that something is going on that needs to be discussed and call it what it is: Spiritual Warfare.

$250,000 of therapy later...I'm still working Mr. Lee's energetic teachings of severe separation out of my system. I believe people are taught to actually pray and curse against people in prayer meetings. Some dense and wicked energy moves through the vacant soul's, unfortunately, I don't think it is the love of Christ. Over time people shut down their heart more and more and more and are easily controlled. You must have a low self esteem to begin with and it will degrade slowly over time.

The Local Church of Witness Lee, as horrific as it is being exposed to be, is not the source of the problem. It’s much more sinister than that. How is that possible?

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Based on Ephesians 6:12, this statement is absolutely true:

"I believe people are taught to actually pray and curse against people in prayer meetings. Some dense and wicked energy moves through the vacant soul's..."

How long has this been going on? Long before the Local Church ever existed.

Genesis 3:14-15
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.


God's enemny has been fighting against God's people ever since enmity was declared between Satan and the woman.

The topic created by Igzy in 2008 are timely and appropriate today…11 years later and will be appropriate until God’s enemy is ultimately dealt with. No one gets a free pass. The LC leadership knows these truths as well as we do, yet close their eyes to the truth in God’s word, excusing their own toxic behavior at the expense of their brothers and sisters.

Watch the following excellent video by Neil T. Anderson.

It's a Q&A on Spiritual Warfare, but you can't hear the questions. However, the answers are excellent.

9 And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 10 For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 12 And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14 And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him.

It is the fellowship of His sufferings.
