“Through faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” – Hebrews 11:3 (KJV)

One of the things I have observed is that spiritual warfare will intensify. The enemy is not pulling punches. He is serious and he intends to fulfil his assignment which is to steal, to kill and to destroy. If you are ignorant, you will become a cheap victim in the hand of the devil. One thing that destroys God’s people is ignorance. Even though positionally and potentially they have the victory, they are not able to apply what has been given to them because they are ignorant.

You can give a very good weapon to a soldier but until he knows how to deploy that weapon, what you have given him will be useless. That is why understanding is very crucial. You need revelation to understand what is going on and your position in it.

The realm of the spirit is real. A baby that is in the mother’s womb believes that the world begins and ends in that womb. If the baby is told that there is another world outside the mother’s womb, he may find it difficult to believe you until he is born into this world.

Beloved, there is another world outside this material world where we find ourselves. What happens in this world is determined by what had taken place in that world. So, the Spirit world rules, controls and governs this material realm and you need to have an understanding of your place in it so that you will be able to withstand the challenges of the day.

The Bible tells us in Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” The book of John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth.” When we put the two scriptures together, they validate the fact that the Spirit realm rules the material realm.
