You want to be a godly man. This means choosing sides, as you are either a godly man or you're not. Once you’ve decided, God has given you the armor you need to withstand the attacks of your enemy (Ephesians 6:11)
The question is do you really believe all this. Is there really a spiritual war out there or is this just church talk?
How can I believe all of this spiritual talk when I have real physical and emotional pain?
I can’t see God, the devil, angels or demons. How can they be real? I can feel pain. I know that’s real.
The pain of this world is real. Sin brought this pain into the world. Jesus is real. He has saved us from the sin and the pain.
God came in the flesh as Jesus to our physical world. He died a physical death in the world for our sins. He physically rose again to conquer death. We all still die (unless Jesus returns before we do), but we can have eternal life if we believe.
We all have the same choice as Neo in the Matrix. We can choose to take the red pill and join the battle against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). Or you can choose the blue pill and continue to live oblivious to this very real battle.
Believe and join God’s army. Be a godly man.
