“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.

As I was reading the letter from the white guy who said, in other words, blacks are still slaves. I was really hurt, but never did get angry though because of the way it was written. It is the case that tone played a huge part in that; or, it could be growth in the area of accepting truth. Whatever, the case, I got it; that is, black people look down on each other because of stuff we acquire, and it’s nothing new.
In James 1, there is much time spent speaking of asking for wisdom, because without it we can find ourselves in some rough places. He writes, “If any of you lack wisdom let as of Elohim…” doesn’t say run and ask bff and the boys, but to ask the right Source for it. Conversely, we seek out advice from the wrong people, because we are hung up on looks. Hence, she is a Psychiatrist, He’s a Pastor, they have a Doctorate, or a Master of Divinity and so on.
Let it be known today that outward looks kill spirits. Therefore, all the aforementioned titles look good on one’s resume’, however, what about wisdom? We must know there is no way to fight without it.
About wisdom he says, “Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as the flower of the field he shall pass away. For the sun rose with burning heat, and withered the grass, and its flower fell, and its pretty appearance perished. So shall the rich man shall fade away in his ways. (v.9-11).
You know what, with all happening I am happy to walk where I walk now. Let me tell you, someone keeps reminding me that if it had not been for a certain someone I dealt with early on; I could have been finished with school and so on…but I tell you what, I would not know what I know now, see what I see, and have the wisdom I have; nor would I have been called out from the madness of thinking I need more money, to get rich to be righteous. I boast then in my exaltation because I can make it through….and stand the test.
What about it? The testing. James continues and says, “Blessed is the man who does endure trial, for when he has been proved he shall receive the crown of life which the Master has promised to those who love Him.”
People out there chasing money are missing out on true relationship with Yahwah. Oh, we believe that petty giving in offering, dressing up our sin is making up for it…and that it is Yah who blesses with stuff.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Satan blesses with toys, Yah blesses with wisdom. Get that way down in your spirit. We can remember Kanye Wests’ statement about selling his soul for a “few toys and a happy meal.”
The Scriptures are clear, we cannot serve two Masters…
Who do you serve?
For your hearing:
” Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock, and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them, shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand, and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.” And it came to be, when יהושע had ended these words, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
for He was teaching them as one possessing authority, and not as the scribes.” (Matthew 7: 24-29)
for he will trample down our foes.
16 Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.
17 However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.
18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]
19 For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.
