Ephesians 6:12b …but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
In an impassioned speech to the Second Virginia Revolutionary Convention meeting at St. John’s Church, Richmond, on March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry intoned the famous phrase, “Give me liberty or give me death”. Although in the midst of revolutionary fervor the phrase captures, to my mind the essence of the principle behind the even more famous verse from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. The “world forces” referred to above are the primary focus here and those are actually any government or person which sets itself against the will and righteousness of God. Secondarily the “forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” refers absolutely to the presence of the demonic in the world.
While you may not be comfortable with such a reactionary on the one hand, and metaphysical, world view on the on the other, I believe that history bears me out. It is frequently necessary to oppose the plans of men who are in league with the Devil whether knowingly or not. And certainly, we can see the work of the enemy in his disregard for men and women, children as well, which ends in enslavement and human trafficking, drug addiction, alcoholism, and the irresponsible marketing of major corporations who worship what Jesus referred to as mammon.
Remember. The only victories we win against Satan are the ones which elevate and glorify Jesus our Christ.
