Random Trilogy Snippets, Part Four: The Biggest Battle is Spiritual (Part Five): “For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood…” (Ephesians 6:12)

‘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)

I have memorized a few Bible verses as they are key to my mindset and way of living, and this verse from the Epistle of Paul to the Ephesians, Chapter Six, Verse 12, is one of the most important Bible verses, in my opinion. It basically summarizes the spiritual battle I and many others face daily. It basically says this: as evil as some folks are in this world within the criminal psychopathic elites as well as within the society or community each one of us lives in, including work places, the true spiritual battle is against the ‘rulers of the darkness of this world,’ that is, the spiritual rulers of evil, the spiritual wickedness in high places that rules over their evil minions, the minions that claim to ‘rule’ the world governments, economies, popular culture, etc. Name any evil person or ruler or authority, and it is true that something spiritually evil is ruling over them.

About the Prodigal Band Trilogy–Main Characters-Part 4: the Evil

With this trilogy or series of novels themed primarily as a battle between good and evil, there must be an evil side. As I stated in a previous post, when the first novel, Battle of the Band, was being finalized, I began researching what forces might have been behind the events at Ruby Ridge in Idaho, the David Koresh cult church in Waco, Texas, and the various militia groups tied to the Oklahoma City bombing, the last two events of which happened under President Bill Clinton, as well as former President George HW Bush, who was the first world leader I ever heard mention ‘new world order,’ and was president during Ruby Ridge. Did Bush’s ‘new world order’ speech cause various militia groups to be formed as a response to increasing globalization toward a ‘one-world-government’? Such a scenario is prophesied in the Book of Revelation–that an ‘anti-Christ’ would unite the world under a false peace and then turn the world on its head in an orgy of death and destruction to all whom opposed this one-world-government run by evil. For it is research into Bible prophecy that caused me to consider this battle between good and evil as the theme for my books.
