Spiritual Warfare 101, 201, 301, and 401

Bring in light and darkness flees.

Let me say it again. In case your theology would want it to be more difficult than this. In case your christian framework would want to have more glory than this. In case your paradigm and mindset would need to contribute something of self effort or sacrifice or piety or morality or warfare or even prayers or worship.

Bring in light and darkness flees.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5

The only war is the war in your heart to agree with light for yourself and others.

Who is the light? Jesus

“I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.” John 12:46

And what are you called to be? Light

“You are the light of the world.” Matthew 5:14a

So, this day, choose light.

Agree to the heart of God as revealed through Jesus Christ.

Restoration is for anyone who would call on the name of the Lord.

Want this for others. Live this for others. Receive it for yourself.

If you have a trust relationship with Jesus then you are called to be this light, a beacon, a lighthouse, a reflector, a flashlight on a dark path, for others.

( You are not chosen to tell others they are not chosen. Blasphemy… )

Note: a heart of vengeance will not carry light. A heart of hatred cannot carry light. A heart intent on retribution and pay-back and justification does not carry light. Ever.

Light looks like this, “… love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control … ” Galatians 5:22-23

You don’t have to yell at the darkness, this is what the pagans do.

You don’t have to beseech (the) god(s) to hear you, this is what pagans do.

You don’t have to be loud and scary and bristly, this is satans game not Gods.

Do not use prayer as manipulation, this is the way of darkness, the sin of divination.

Worship can be light but only as reflective of light and not fear (even the pagans dance).

Morality is a by-product of light, not the way to it.

There is no war, the war has been won, death has been defeated.

Why are you still on the battlefield?

Trust in the light of the world – Jesus.

Light comes in and darkness flees.

Bring in light and darkness flees.

Repeat through every layer of your being, heart, mind, spirit, body, emotions.

Bring in light and darkness flees.

Begin a trust relationship with the light of the world – Jesus.

“I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.” John 12:46

Agree to light for everyone. Call everyone forth to the light. No matter what.

Change your heart about the ones you hate, about the outsider, about the one you fear, about the one you don’t understand, about the one who seems against you, the ones who irritate you, enrage you, and disgust you, and the ones who have hurt you most.

“For the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:20

Render everything and everyone in light of the light of the world.

There, light comes in and darkness flees.

Sure of the light we rest in the light.

Sure of Jesus we rest in Jesus.

Your spiritual authority is about how sure you are of The Light.

Spiritual authority is about how sure you are of Jesus.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Bring in light and darkness flees.

  1. This is so beautiful! I love how you simplify something that so many of us forget, thank you for the gentle reminder to be the light where I go, and that we can cast out fear by shining the light!
