Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 213

Scripture:

Ps 139:20
… thine enemies take thy name in vain

(Swedish version: “… they have brought your cities into disaster”)

Comment:

The Swedish version tells us some important truths, and we will have a look at each of them.

your cities …

Every city, and every nation, belongs to God. Let’s have a look at a couple of scriptures that shows that:

Ps. 24:1
The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof …

Ps 89:12
The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine …

The nations belong to God, and thus also the cities. You might ask, “But didn’t Adam and Eve give the nations of the earth to the devil?” The answer is, they gave away the right to rule, but they had no authority to give away the ownership.

Luke 4:5-6
5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

When the devil tempted Jesus, he didn’t say that the nations had been turned over to him. He said he had been given the authority over them. That authority was later taken from him by Jesus, and now the authority belongs to Jesus and those he delegates authority to.

The truth about our cities is that they belong to God. The evil spiritual world is occupying them illegally, and the evil spirits will continue to do so until we, the believers, use the authority that has been given to us.
