“Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up the complete armour of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:12,13).
We should get that although we do struggle against spiritual forces of unrighteousness. It is the case that we should also get that we fight demon possessed people. Oh, nobody wants to admit that their mother, father, kids and other people we deal with are demon possessed. In fact, we are so caught up in television and what media portrays as demon possession that we can’t see that people we deal with everyday are demon possessed. It is the case that people dont have to be vomiting green slime to be so.
Because we do wrestle with this phenomena unseen we should be quick if we are truly called as we say to recognize evil when it is before us, and know this is not a game or one of the silly arguments we have with someone, but evil.
Notice, Ephesians 6:5, starts out with telling servants to obey their Masters. Well that verse will throw someone’s mind off if they have not renewed thinking. We know today people are not slaves in the sense of chains, however, someone is a slave to the god of their world. Hence, are most like that which we follow or think like. For this occasion, this speaks of (for example) someone in the workplace. Therefore, we are servants doing a service for that place. Simple, not difficult at all. However, the problem is not going to work, but working for people who are not set apart. This says, that we might work for people who are unethical, dishonest, liars, and this is difficult for one who has come from among this type thinking. It is not the case of going to work and doing our jobs, but about going to work and doing our job in righteousness. This means trouble if one is walking in TRUTH. BATTLE!
This is why the word proclaims, “Put on the entire armor of Yahwah.” Because without the ENTIRE suit, we are tempted to give in. We cannot fight if we are not walking in truth. So look at this, “Servants, obey your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Messiah; not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but as servants of Messiah, doing the desire of Elohim from the inner self,” (Ephesians 6:5,6).
In this instance, we see that again we might choose to give in and do as they wish, or stand for truth. Choose wisely.
Today: Ask yourself, Where is my head at? Am I doing and speaking righteousness even at work? If not change that. Say, no matter what I am for truth! Today I will break from unethical thinking, lies and hypocrisy by speaking and living truth in my workplace.

“Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that he exalts you in due time, casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you. Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:6-8)
Let’s face it, the devil isn’t after people who are already his. He comes to steal, kill and destroy, and frankly, why would he kill steal or destroy what belongs to him.
This is what we should get…that the devil deals with lust. He seduces with trinkets and stuff we like, and it is the case that the minute we decide to go another way; that is THE WAY, he is going to make it hard to stay there.
We should be careful to watch!
The word says, “Resist Him, firm in belief, knowing the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (v.9)
We should question then ‘the belief’ surely a life which follows prosperity doesn’t experience these type hardships and persecutions conveyed by stepping away from that life.
Today: Do the new thing….Messianic teaching…seek Torah.

“Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me Oh Yah, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come”. (Psalm 71:18).
This is not a one size fit all word, but Truth. It is the case that one would have an identity to pass something down. Not a legacy of slavery and chains, but of Kingdom righteousness. Yah’s power of redeemption for his beloved. Yes, and how can tnis happen unless Yah reveal to us our worth, our value of who we are?
No, our legacy might include a curse for disobedience, however it includes Truth of a Royal Priesthood hand picked and chosen.
Today: pass it on, our future warriors need to hear who they are.
