The Spiritual World is Alive!

Demonic Spirits gargoyle

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Let us be aware of God’s presence and know that He is with us!

God Almighty, Jesus Christ, is present here now just as He was two thousand years ago and forever!  There is no difference my friends, none what so ever.

Time is relative only to our existence as humans in the physical body.  Time to God is really non-existent, and the same goes for all spiritual beings, including demons.  This means that God is the same today as He was yesterday and will  be tomorrow!

Some people, even many Christians seem to believe that for some reason or another, God is different now then when He created the earth.  They also believe that demonic spirits in the time of Jesus were some how different then they are today.  That they don’t really exist as they did then.  This is a lie and could not be further from the truth!

The reality is that all spirits are alive today and the same as they were two thousand or six thousand years ago!

This also means that demonic spirits are alive in the world today, and they are doing the same things they did then, even more so.  They know that their time here on earth is short, so they have stepped up their game!

The “Legion” of demons which possessed the man in the country of the Gadarenes (per the NKJV), are the same as demons today!

Mark 5

“Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes. And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.

When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me.”

For He said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” Then He asked him, “What is your name?”

And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” 10 Also he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country.

11 Now a large herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains. 12 So all the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us to the swine, that we may enter them.” 13 And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea.”

We need to be aware of the presence of demons and evil spirits.  Just because many people do not believe that they exist does not mean that they do not!  Just as many people do not believe that God exists does not mean that He does not either!  They all do!

Much of what is happening in the world today is under the power of evil spirits, of possessed people, and of the forces of darkness!  This is why it is so vitally important for us as believers to keep our faith strong, to stand for righteousness, to love people, and to pray for good to overcome evil.

While we are alive and living on this earth, we need to be strong and courageous, fighting against the forces of darkness, shining the light of God through us.

Do not be misled into believing that evil spirits no longer exist, that Satan and his demons were a thing of the past, this is foolishness and very unwise!

Stand firm in your faith and your walk with the Lord.  Give Him thanks in all things, humble yourself before Him, and do as He would do, love those around you!  He is our Fortress and our Helper in times of trouble!

And while we are to love, we are also to stand for holiness, righteousness, and the principles of God.  This is a spiritual battle between the forces of good and evil.  Prayer is our tool, the word of God is our defense.

God loves us all more than we could ever know.  His mercy and grace go out to the whole world.  It is His desire for no one to perish, but for all to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Well said Gordon.
    It is a spiritual war going on, since Lucifer became envious of Our Creator. He’s at war with God, His principals and us especially, who believe in God, let alone the rest of humanity. Satan does not care for us or our planet but wants our demise any which way he can achieve it.
    We can’t afford to let our guard down, give into him, not believe. But stay within God’s grace. We need to have our armor on, be soldiers of God Almighty. Jesus is our shield and our safety net always.
    It’s amazing how people can believe in so much fantasy yet miss the reality of what it says in Scriptures.
    God bless. Maranatha!
