Principle Three: There are two kingdoms in the spirit realm and these two kingdoms are eternally opposed to one another.
Every human being belongs spiritually to either of these kingdoms. The Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of light; the kingdom of devil is the kingdom of darkness. Everyone was born in sin into the kingdom of Satan through the fall of Adam; you also enter the Kingdom of God by the New Birth. You have to be born-again to be in the Kingdom of God which is the Kingdom of light.
The kingdom of darkness is always in contest against the Kingdom of God but the Kingdom of God is more powerful than the kingdom of the devil. If you are born-again, you belong to the greater Kingdom and you should expect some opposition to your earthly operation in the earth, but God has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints to enable you deal effectively with the opposition of the kingdom of darkness. You have been given the Holy Ghost to teach you the art of spiritual warfare.
As a result of this opposition and because faith and words are so vital to the operation of this realm, Satan will try his best to destabilize your faith by attacking the Word of God to you. He does this by attacking the integrity of the Word of God. He seeks to give you his own words which will give you fear which leads to defeat. Therefore, you need to learn to “fight the good fight of faith” by constantly feeding your faith on the Word of God.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to fight the good fight of faith; that the enemy will not quench my expectation in Jesus’ name. Amen!
