Evil is a spiritual battle, well before it is a physical one.
An unidentified gunman barrelled the truck two kilometres through a crowd that had been enjoying a fireworks display for France’s national day before being shot dead by police.
The physical cannot even test, let alone defeat the spiritual. The natural is toothless when faced by the supernatural. This earth, this visible universe is not all there is. Reality is not measured by the five senses. Reality lives eternally beyond any mere man’s perceptions. Human imagination can not account for all it is unable to see, try as it might. History is heading somewhere. God is in control and He has revealed in His Word, the end-time scenario.
Mankind’s skills are as impotent to prevent evil as legislation is incompetent.
The Fight against Evil (Ephesians 6:10 CEV)
Finally, let the mighty strength of the Lord make you strong. 11 Put on all the armour that God gives, so you can defend yourself against the devil’s tricks. 12 We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world. 13 So put on all the armour that God gives. Then when that evil day[a] comes, you will be able to defend yourself. And when the battle is over, you will still be standing firm.
Be ready! Let the truth be like a belt around your waist, and let God’s justice protect you like armour. 15 Your desire to tell the good news about peace should be like shoes on your feet. 16 Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Let God’s saving power be like a helmet, and for a sword use God’s message that comes from the Spirit.
Never stop praying, especially for others. Always pray by the power of the Spirit. Stay alert and keep praying for God’s people.
