Seeing the Spiritual Warfare Going On Behind the Outward and Physical Scene


And he said to me, Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand this matter and to afflict yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me for twenty-one days; but now Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I remained there alone with the kings of Persia. (Dan. 10:12-13)If you read the book of Daniel you will be amazed to see time and time again that there’s a real spiritual struggle, a spiritual warfare, going on behind the scenes.

Especially in Daniel 10 we see that in order for God to deliver the message to Daniel as a response to his honest and persistent prayer, there was a spiritual battle going on. God’s created archangel, Lucifer, rebelled against God and took with him one third of the angels, who followed him in his rebellion.

Now, whenever God wants to do something, whenever man cooperates with God through prayer for God’s will to be released on earth, there is much spiritual warfare.

Behind the physical scene, behind the rise in power and demise of power of people and rulers, there’s a spiritual battle going on, something in the invisible realm. We need to see this. Read more on this topic via,

Behind the Physical Scene there is a Spiritual War, an Invisible Spiritual Struggle

In Revelation 12 we see a great vision regarding what is taking place right now in the entire universe. There is a woman who is about to give birth to a manchild, and the dragon persecutes the woman and wants to eat her man-child baby about to be born.

The church as God’s people today is “God’s woman”, His wife, representing Him on the earth. The woman is the totality of all of God’s people since the fall of man in Genesis 3.

The dragon is God’s enemy, Satan, who in the beginning of the Bible was a little serpent (see Gen. 3) but who throughout the ages has been feeding on man’s flesh (the dust of the ground, see Gen. 3:14-15) and has grown to be a great dragon.

Throughout the centuries there has been a war between the woman (God’s people) and the dragon (Satan, God’s enemy). Read more on this topic via,
