With the entrance of darkness into the universe, three deadly predators trailed along in the atmosphere like an infected carbuncle(boil). Early on, they each had their personal profile for carrying out their deadly intentions.
However, over time, they became close friends and formed a powerful coalition that works together for mass destruction. Hate, fear, and doubt are three of the deadliest weapons in the toolbox of darkness. Together they can score a knockout punch and create havoc in a very short time to hundreds of people.
These vultures are extremely dangerous since they have the capability to choose anyone as prey at any time without reservation or conscience.
If you have ever watched any type of construction, you know every house or building structure must begin with a foundation. In addition, every construction project must meet specific building and safety codes before the plans are approved. Once the standards are met, the project can move forward.
If we make the world situation our daily focus, it may appear we are faced with overwhelming odds to defeat the powers of darkness. As a result, we begin to wonder where is our foundation to overcome this toxic atmosphere?
Recall that every new construction project must meet certain safety standards. Assuredly, we have a foundation based on our spiritual Rock. He meets all the standards of eternal love. Biblically speaking, we have everything needed to wage war against any unholy alliance whose only aim is to keep us imprisoned and destroy our faith in His promises.
An important reminder is that our walk of faith will not be an easy one. We are wrestling against spiritual forces who hate God and His creations. You may not want to believe you are in a war for your soul, but truth be told, that is exactly what is happening every day. It is a war of darkness against light.
When we hang out with hatred, lock ourselves in the closet of fear, and hold hands with doubt, we give wicked principalities, cosmic forces and the powers of darkness approval to find a nesting place within our soul. (Ephesians 6:12)
Our weapons must be spiritual: the Bible (His truth and light), prayer, faith (trust/hope), are our offensive weapons to overcome evil forces. Our foundation cannot be built on sinking sand, but on the strength and love of our spiritual Rock.
