The two spiritual kingdoms – part 3

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 17:21

Does the war between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil mean we fight against people?

Eph. 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The bible tells that we are not fighting against people. We are fighting the evil spirits behind people’s actions. However, the fight will often manifest through people.

Is a nation influenced by the presence of the spiritual kingdoms?

A nation can be influenced by one or both of the spiritual kingdoms, but first and foremost by the dominating one.

How can the kingdom of the devil be driven back and the kingdom of God be expanded?

The kingdom of the devil is driven back by helping people get saved. But it is also driven back when believers receive the right teaching and act from the authority that has been given to us. Then the evil spirits will be cast out and the kingdom of God will expand.

Matt 12:28
But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Can the kingdom of the devil be totally cast out from a nation?

Even if it seems to be a utopia, it is still possible.

Why do we need teaching about the kingdom of God?

We need teaching about the kingdom of God because the devil tries to steal the revelation about the spiritual realities and about our function to expand the kingdom of God.

Matt. 13:19
When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart …

Is the teaching about the kingdom of God important regarding the end times?

The bible says that people all over the world will have heard teaching about the kingdom of God before the end comes.

Matt. 24:14
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Notice that it doesn’t say ‘gospel about salvation’ but it says “gospel of the kingdom”. That doesn’t mean we should belittle the message about salvation. Salvation is, and remains, the central message. The kingdom of God consists of saved people. But, we must be observant to what the bible actually says, as opposed to just reading it out of tradition.
