Here is an excerpt from the May 2011 Issue of my newsletter.

The scripture says Satan walks about here on earth but he is not omnipresent so he cannot be everywhere. He is not omniscient or omnipotent either. He needs help to carry out his misdeeds. He has an army of miscreant spirits that do his bidding. As believers our fight is not against human beings, our fellow man, but against Satan and his ranks namely: principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age and spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)

The terms are translated neutrally but in context of scripture, Paul is speaking to born-again believers whose enemy is the devil and his minions. Based on this we know that his reference must be to those infernal beings. In our everyday struggles we do not struggle against people.

In this scripture the word ‘wrestle’ comes from the Greek PALE, pronounced pä'-lā, a literal wrestling match where two struggle for supremacy over each other. ‘The Rulers’ comes from the Greek KOSMOKRATOR, pronounced ko-smo-krä'-tōr. It refers directly to Satan the lord of this world and his generals. ‘Darkness’ comes from the Greek SKOTOS, pronounced sko'-tos, meaning ignorance of Godly things. ‘Wickedness’ comes from the Greek PONERIA, pronounced po-nā-rē'-ä, meaning depravity, malice, evil purposes and desires. ‘High Places’ comes from the Greek EPOURANIOS, pronounced ep-ü-rä'-nē-os, and literally refers to all the heavenly regions.

Essentially, we struggle for supremacy over the spirit magistracy and potentates, including Satan himself, who are spirit rulers in the universe. They promote and perpetuate ignorance of Godly things as well as spiritual depravity, evil purposes and desires in all the heavenly regions. These ranks of demons are on the earth in the spirit realm including in the atmosphere around the earth (1st heaven). Some are rulers in the spirit realm in specific regions of space (2nd heaven). While some are inter-galactic (again 2nd heaven) spirit potentates that have the liberty to do as they please.

As I said above, this is an excerpt. ^_^ ALL my studies are listed in ascending chronological order starting with the earliest, at the right hand side of the page. You can freely read, print or download the entire study using each link to the right above.
