Commentary By: Gordon King
I am not the only believer being attacked by the enemy, not the first, not the last. I am also not the only believer feeling an increase in demonic attacks, they are happening all over the world my friends, increased attacks with increased intensity, as in birth pangs.
I pray the good Lord protects those under demonic attacks, that He places a shield of protection around them. I pray the blood of Jesus over them, and I bind all demonic spirits from attacking them. In Jesus name. Amen.
Jesus warned us of birth pangs as signs of the end times, and these spiritual attacks are definitely a part of it!
This is why we now see an increase in demonic activity in the world, it isn’t just happening by chance, just as the universe did not just form by chance.
The end times shall be marked by an increase in evil and ungodliness, an increase in spiritual darkness, just as in the days of Noah!
When a believer experiences increased demonic attacks it is because he or she is seeking God and the things of God, seeking to perform His will on earth. We are not attacked because we are living like the world, not because we are conforming to the ways of the world, but because we are living for God!
Satan knows that his time is short, and he also knows that the beginning of the Tribulation period is getting very close. Therefore he must prepare the world to accept the Antichrist, to follow his lead. He will attempt to subdue any and all forms of righteousness and holiness, attempting to turn off the light in order to make way for the darkness.
This is why we see an increase in evil and an increase in demonic attacks. This is how close we are to the beginning of the Tribulation period. We were warned that this would happen, we were foretold that it would happen before it actually happens.
And even though we may be experiencing spiritual attacks, we must look at the whole picture. We must see where all of this fits into bible prophecy.
The end times, the last days will be as it was during the time of Noah and the Great Flood. People were eating, drinking, and marrying, living their lives as usual, just as they are now. The times were very dark, evil abounded, and their were only eight people found worthy to be saved. The people of that time did not listen to what Noah had to say, they continued on with their way of life and refused to turn from their sin.
Isn’t that how we see life on earth now? Don’t most people live their lives as they always have, refusing to believe what God is telling them? Doesn’t evil abound?
In the last days perilous times shall come according to the apostle Paul.
2 Timothy 3
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
The warning signs are here all around us, do we see them? The birth pangs are increasing in both frequency and intensity, do we feel them? If we read and study scripture, if we follow the Lord and His ways, then we should be aware of the times as well.
This is a spiritual war, and as followers of Christ we now find ourselves in the middle of it. As the Lord’s soldiers we must put on the armor of God and fight the good fight, continuing on and persevering towards our goal.
Take heart in knowing that these spiritual attacks are a sign of the times, a sign of the closeness of Christ’s return for His bride. And if all of these things are increasing, and they are, then just how close are we?
Have faith in God, knowing that He is our provider, our protector, and our Father, only wanting the best for us!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
