The spirit world is often misunderstood; it is essential for believers to recognize that there are two spiritual kingdoms at work in the physical world; the Kingdom of God and Satan’s kingdom. The enemy’s kingdom seeks to dominate and control, trying to gain power and usurp God’s authority in the Earth. God’s kingdom works to heal and restore us to wholeness as He originally intended from the foundation of the world.
In the For My Life Retreat, we present a teaching called Spirit World Realities. In this teaching, we unravel the inner workings of these two kingdoms so that you can better understand the spiritual battleground from a Biblical perspective. You will be equipped to discern and overthrow the enemy’s works in your life as you gain an understanding of the powerful work Christ did on the cross and joining God’s victorious plan for the Earth.
Today, we present a short clip from the For My Life Online, Spirit World Realities, teaching by Elder Scott Iwahashi.
Here are a few key points that the Spirit World Realities teaching addresses:
– Who is Satan?
– How does the enemy’s kingdom operate in our lives and in the world today?
– What are the first, second, and third heavens according to scripture?
– What is the Kingdom of God?
– What are angels and demons?
– How can we help overthrow the enemy’s kingdom in our lives and in the world?
– What is the gift of discernment of spirits and why do we need it?
It’s time to be educated in your battleground so that you can be successful as an overcomer
Throughout history, the enemy has worked to create a general unease or even terror of recognizing or addressing his kingdom. What he doesn’t want you to know is that his kingdom was defeated at the cross. Jesus died on the cross to pay the debt for our sins and restore us to fellowship with Himself, God the Father, and God the Holy Spirit. God has given us this incredible gift of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit, who is the Power of God living inside of us, yet so many believers don’t know how to utilize it.
The spirit world realities teaching works to demystify the enemy’s kingdom and pull it back into the light where it is exposed and not such a mystery. As believers, there is no longer any reason to fear the enemy’s kingdom. Instead, we need to understand and utilize the powerful tools that God wants to freely give us so that we can walk out of any areas that the enemy has kept us in bondage to sin through deception.
This teaching sets a foundation for many of the other For My Life teachings which work to identify and expose specific evil spirits that may be at work in our lives, keeping us separated from wholeness in God’s righteousness, love, and peace.
God is on His throne, and it’s time we set God back on the throne of our lives as our Father. We no longer have to be victims of a world given over to sin. In Christ, we are overcomers!
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 KJV
