Spiritual Darkness in these Last Days!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

There is something in the air that is adversely affecting the world, it permeates society, it enters the hearts and souls of men.  It is so thick that you could almost cut it with a knife, you can almost see it with your own eyes!

What I am talking about is darkness, spiritual darkness, evil and demonic spirits!  Most people cannot sense this darkness, they cannot see it, nor can they feel it.  However, many more can sense it, they can feel it, and they are being attacked by it, but not all actually know the source of their attacks.

For believers in Jesus Christ, we should know who our attackers are, who our enemy is, and what we can do about it.

Evil spirits are wicked and demonic.

Ephesians 6:12

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Satan is the ruler of the air.

Ephesians 2:1-2

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,”

They are ruled by Satan.

Matthew 12:24

‘Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.” ‘

These demonic spirits are out to attack us, especially believers in Jesus Christ.  The closer that we get to the beginning of the Tribulation period the more intense their attacks will be against us, and the more they will influence the world.

I don’t know if you can feel them or sense them, but I sure can!  They have been attacking me for many years now, and their attacks are becoming much more frequent and with much more intensity!  At times I feel this darkness surrounding me on all sides, complete and utter darkness.  I know what this darkness is, evil spirits and demons!  They will do everything in their power to stop God’s children from performing His will, everything they can to bring us down and destroy us.  They know that they cannot steal our soul, however, they will try and separate us from God and make our lives miserable!  They will do everything that they possibly can to get us to renounce Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior!

These evil spirits will attack us every way possible, they will attack our health, our finances, our home, our belongings, our mind, our heart, and even our friends and family.  Let’s not forget Job and how Satan attacked him, every aspect of his life!  And if he did it to Job, then he could do it to us. 

We need to be doing as the apostle Paul told us to do.

Ephesians 6:10-13

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

This is how we fight off evil spirits and demons, by putting on the whole armor of God!

But I believe that there is more that we need to be doing, we must do as Jesus Christ told us to do also, the greatest of the commandments.

Mark 12:29-31

Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

We should love the Lord our God with all of all soul, mind, and strength; and we should love our neighbor as our self.

We can say that we love God, but if we don’t love others then how much do we really love God?  In times of spiritual darkness, it is vitally important that we love each other, as God loves us.  We must be loving and forgiving of one another.

Spiritual darkness brings loneliness, anxiety, and depression to those under attack.  Therefore, it is very important to love and encourage one another, especially so in these last days!

The world isn’t going to get any better before Jesus Christ returns at His second coming, in fact, it is going to get much worse!  More spiritual darkness is coming; therefore, we must be more and more like Christ and follow God’s will.

Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!
