War and Peace

Romans 8-10 “Therefore there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” because you are free from the law of sin and death and are alive in Christ.”]Rom 8:1]

Beloved, remember this truth; as we noted in Rom 7, the unbeliever “does not get it and never will get it” because they are in a battle against God, not against you. Remember, they do not have the Holy Spirit within, so they are unwilling to agree with God. Therefore, they are at war with themselves and God and are hostile to God. This is the truth according to Rom 1 and Gal 5. We need this list before us when unbelievers persecute us, and we are asking why. They don’t know any different because they are governed by their flesh, which is governed by the prince and power of the air, Satan himself. PRAY FOR THEM/ WITNESS TO THEM.

Remember the words of Jesus and Peter, “Do not think it strange when you are reviled and persecuted.” This is the battle of the flesh against the Spirit. It is a spiritual battle [Eph 6], and because it is a spiritual battle, those who do not know Him will lose in the end without the intervention of our witness and the power of the Holy Spirit to bring them to the saving knowledge of Christ and His work of redemption.

So how, then, do we find the peace that passes all understanding? We must have the desire of the heart to pray for their salvation. For whom are you praying today that is under the dominion of the evil one?
