Wrestle Against Principalities
Now that the Saddam rule has been removed, is the battle over? We still are fighting with guns, but that isn't the real battle. The real battle is the same battle that we have been fighting from the beginning. It is a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:11 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
We must not let up with our prayers. Guns and money will not win a war against this kind of enemy. Are we so deceived as to think that the demons of hell that have ruled Babylon for centuries are going to surrender? There will be a battle there between the God that our president represents and the gods of a people that know not the true God. This is being demonstrated by certain religious leaders in Iraq, as well as Iran, to make Iraq a Muslim theocracy. If this happens the Christians living in Iraq will be persecuted, denied their rights, and will not be able to share their faith without being sent to prison or killed. In your praying, attack this spiritual wickedness, claim Iraq for Jesus. Plead the blood of Jesus against the forces of evil. The victory will only come through Jesus Christ our Lord. But we can share in that victory. Pray for those who have the impossible task of bringing out of chaos a democratic nation, unless God intervenes.
God bless you and your family,
