The Voice of God – Part 4

Two armies are fighting in a dimension not visible to the natural eye. Many places in Scripture provide insight into this dimension where angels do God’s bidding and demons oppose God’s children. Jacob made reference to this in Genesis 32:1,2. After being met by God’s angels, Jacob named the place “Mahanaim,” which literally means “double camp”—the place where he camped and the camp of heavenly beings.What role do prophetic people play in exposing Satan’s schemes and warring in the heavenlies? A major one. Historically, the prophets understood and prophesied against the worship of the demonic gods of the Gentile nations. Just as the prophets of old prophesied against the false gods of nations, however, God is raising up a company of prophets to speak His word against the strongholds of cities and nations. Ephesians 6:12 says: we wrestle against these powers and not flesh and blood, and I don’t have any idea how to do that. Growing up in church, I never heard a single sermon on the healing of nations or wrestling against powers of darkness for nations. There must be a way to wage war in this way for nations, I reasoned, or the Bible wouldn’t say to do so in Ephesians 6:12 and 2 Chronicles 7:14.
