Some Thoughts about Spiritual Warfare

These were some thoughts and ideas that came to me in hospital, second stint, this year.

Spiritual Wickedness in High Place; To come against the principalities and powers that rule over cities and countries you need a mandate from God otherwise you will be overcome.

I think this refers to the demonic powers that rule over large dominions, eg whole large cities and large spaces with many people, States or Countries.

I had a picture of a Roman army "Tortoise". It is essentially a

defensive formation used by the legionaries, who would hold their shields overhead, all except the front row. This would create a  
 kind of shell-like armour shielding the missiles from the front or above. (Explanation & photo from Goggle)

What Jesus showed me was our shields of faith used like this would reflex His light blinding the enemy who hides in the dark secrete places. The reflexed light of Jesus finds these principalities and blinds them, flushing them out and expelling them. If we learn to use the "shields-reflexing-light tortoise" with effectveness and efficienty we can set the captives(of the land/cities) free.

I feel this kind of warfare, at that level, would need to be Mandated by God, ie a group of believers would receive a commission to go against a particular principality in the particular place. This is a specific calling.

All believers are referred to as the Army of God, we are all soldiers, we receive rankings from Him to fight the enemy of our souls. And fight we do, sometimes for our very lives . But if you like, the ones called to confront these principalities are as commandoes. They have a commission which carries a separate anointing.

I feel that the Lord, as the Commander of the army, is, and will be calling and commissioning these commandoes. They will be needed to release the cities and countries free from these demonic forces that currently rule over the people's lives to rob them of the blessings of God.

This opens the paths ways and makes them straight for the preaching and teaching of the Gospel.
