It is crucial that every Christian understands that he/she is in a spiritual battle. There is no way to get out of it. Awareness of the spiritual battle around us is very important. Not only awaren...

Yes we do need to be aware, but one of the most overlooked words in scripture is "sober". Unfortunately, too many Christians are overly foucused on an issue. There are many examples: abortion, polotics, the courts, and so on. Now I'm not saying we as Christians should not be involed in these issues, but over and over the bible sayes we should be sober of mind (2 Tim. 4:5, 1 Tim. 3:2, 1 Thes. 5:6, 1 Pet. 4:7, 1 Thes. 5:8, 1 Tim. 3:11, 1 Pet. 5:8, 1 Pet. 1:13, Rom. 12:3, Tit. 2:2. 

Too many are drunk with the issues of this world. I would say, yes, be aware of the battles going on, but strive for balance Rom. 12:17-21. Foucus on winning souls.

In my humble opinion a very causal look around our little sphere (earth) seems to indicate the coming apart of many revered and trusted subsystems within the larger corrupt Babylonian system.2 Corinthians 4:4; Galatians 4:9

On this ever changing landscape ruled by fear and confusion, vain, narcissistic, elite puppet like intelligentsia scamper about as frightened children proclaiming one truth in the morning, then before the setting of the sun, the exact opposite via a new truth from their controlling puppet master...2 Corinthians 11:15; Ephesians 6:12

All that is seen in this realm is deception (coin of this realm) driven by it's prince as his evil juggernaut crests every ridge line and descents into once peaceful valleys leaving destruction and death in its wake. Luke 22:53; 2 Corinthians 11:14; Galatians 1:8

The priority for the body of Christ is to, first understand that a cosmic spiritual battle rages between the kingdoms of Light and darkness and second, we are soldiers and warriors in that army of Light with great / mightily deeds to be done. 2 Corinthians 10:5

We remain secure in the knowledge that we are in Christ and He is in us, never will He leave or forsake us, wherever we may stand on that battlefield, as this battle belongs to the Lord. Joshua 1:5; Joshua 1:7; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 16:13.

Bottom line: First be aware that there is a battle raging, then armor up and take your position troop now forward, to God be the glory. Ephesians 6:11; Galatians 6:5.

In the Lord's freedom always....................warrior on

Yes we do as Paul said that we are not ignorant of devil's schemes and also he declare that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers in heavenly places. If there is a wrestling match going on then one who is fighting has to be aware.

Yes every christian should be aware of the invisible spiritual battle that is taking place even now. It is spiritual warfare that cannot be won by the christian who is not adorned in the full armor of battle. If you are not suited up that you will be an eminent casualty is certain.
